Soundgarden II

I think the only reason I got this CD is because of one name: Rick Rubin. Saw it at Best Buy, figured it had to be good with the American Recordings label splashed all over it. To be honest, it wasn't what I expected (with Rubin it never is) but I was pleasantly surprised. Sounds like Soundgarden if they were a little bit more heavy. Or melodic. Who knows. I guess the band had a bit of a hit in 2003 with "Safe Passage" but that's about all the info I can find. A very listenable album, nothing too original but there's a lot to like. They broke up in 2004.
