In a few words:
Here we have an all star band and fortunately an all star album. Members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam gathered together in order to write an album-tribute to the Andrew Wood (lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone), who died on 19th March 1990 due to heroin overdose. The album has the sound of the bands of early 90's plus a blues feeling that maybe no other "grunge" group had. Furthermore, Chris Cornell gives one of his best performances here. It is an historical album, so if you are fan of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam or even Led Zeppelin, you will enjoy it.

Personal highlights:
"Hunger Strike", "Call Me A Dog" and "All Night Thing"
