I don't have a problem with singers straying from their typical music, hell I enjoyed Weiland's 12 Bar Blues, but E.M. sounded like an album of lullabyes. I'll take Rage over Audioslave.
I love Euphoria Morning. It has a nice soft bluesy feel to it. It just gave Chris the opportunity to do something different and I think he nailed it.
As for Rage... I was a fan of Rage, but I can only handle so much politics in my music. It's one thing to use music to further your agenda everyonce and awhile, but when it becomes the soul purpose of making music it kind of looses it's flair. It almost never fails. A few examples are System and APC. System has always been political, but then they kicked it up a notch and that combined with Daron's complete overtaking of the band killed them (imo). As for APC, they released Emotive and it nearly brought a tear to my eye.
I wouldn't doubt a lot of you disagree with me on this. Not trying to put anyone's stuff down, hopefully no one goes into flame mode.
