Ultramega OK was ok(that was cheesy) - 79%

The_Burning_Snowman, July 19th, 2006

Ultramega OK has its ups and downs but overall it was a good album considering the fact that it was Soundgarden’s debut album. The album had some well-done tracks such as “Flower”, “Beyond the Wheel”, and “Mood for Trouble” but it can’t really be compared to albums like Badmotorfinger and Superunknown. It definitely had a stoner metal edge to it and a little bit of a punk sound to go along. Chris Cornell’s vocal range on “Beyond the Wheel” is quite amazing. Well known musical artist Henry Rollins once said that Cornell could peel the paint of wall and on “Beyond the Wheel” it almost sounds like he can! The guitar work is well done, not as great as it would be on their future albums but Soundgarden was still trying to find their sound at this time. The drums are not to bad and neither is the bass. Overall the album is a must for Die-Hard Soundgarden fans, but for those who aren’t real big fans might not want to bother getting it.
