If you're like me, then you really loved Euphoria Morning, Chris Cornell's debut solo album from the late '90s, and the good vibes you had from that album were enough to let you tacitly accept Audioslave and smooth over most of Carry On.
Ol' Chris, though, has lost his fucking mind and joined forces with Verizon Wireless and Timbaland. For a fucking album.
Now it's not like Chris Cornell is the end-all be-all for art or music at all, but is nothing sacred? Is everybody just foaming at the mouth for the chance to have Timbaland hoot and mug through their album in order to collect a trophy from MTV?
You can listen to the trainwreck at www.chriscornell.com, although it's really not even worth it for the irony.
