A&M Oc­tO­ber 1991

“If Led Zep­pelin re­formed right now and had an ob­ses­sion with some­thing grungy, this is what they’d sound like,” be­gan Metal

Ham­mer’s re­view of the third al­bum from Soundgar­den. To be quite hon­est, nei­ther of those op­tions was par­tic­u­larly likely back in 1991, but our man James Sherry cer­tainly cap­tured the essence of Bad­mo­torfin­ger in a 4/5 cri­tique that also noted: “It’s in­cred­i­ble that a band which her­alds a new move­ment in metal could have their sound set so far in the past.” Some peo­ple still say that the much-missed Chris Cor­nell (RIP) and com­pany never bet­tered the ut­ter gamechang­ing bril­liance of Rusty Cage, Out­shined, Je­sus Christ Pose and all the rest of this truly out­stand­ing record.
