"... an overlooked gem of the latter half of the ’90s. This is a strange, haunted, furious death rattle of an album and 20 years later it still sounds like it has more secrets to uncover."
- Stereogum

"... even darker and sludgier than its predecessor ... it’s music as primordial ooze, with a throbbing backbeat ... Soundgarden are on their musical toes. Few bands since Led Zeppelin have so crisply mixed instruments both acoustic and electric ... throughout, drummer Matt Cameron, with his busy, kinetic style, propels the melodies in a way few tub slammers have since Keith Moon ... (several songs) are as powerful as anything the band has done ... Soundgarden aren’t merely in touch with their inner child. The sound of that child’s wail remains the greatest thrill of all. B+."
- Entertainment Weekly

The pressure was on Soundgarden to follow up 1994's breakthrough release Superunknown and the band didn't disappoint with Down On The Upside. Peaking at number two and selling well over a million copies in the US, the self-produced album spawned American rock radio hits Burden In My Hand, Blow Up The Outside World and Pretty Noose, which also went top 15 in the UK. Despite the worldwide success of the two consecutive albums, tension among the group members became unbearable and less than a year after Down On The Upside came out, Soundgarden split up, not to reunite for another 16 years.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
