Chris Cornell (Polydor)

Casiotone fanfare and robot-voice intro don’t bode well, but it’s not until 66 seconds into opening track Part Of Me for Scream to reveal just how bad an idea it was to pair Timbaland, one of America’s most prolific R’n’B producers with the former singer of Soundgarden.

Cornell’s agonised howl is hopelessly miscast; but the bigger problem is the production, which sounds like it was delegated by Timbaland to an intern.
