Chris Cornell has done a lot of things since forming Soundgarden in 1984, but that was arguably his best musical idea. After a lengthy hiatus, the Seattle grunge titans recently reformed and created only their sixth studio album, King Animal — the first since 1996's Down on the Upside. Between Cornell's hoary wail, guitarist Kim Thayil's astronomical fretwork, and the blasts initiated by bandmates, this might not be the right night to be parked under a chandelier for long.
