Back in 2002, no one could've predicted Audioslave would stick together to become a bonafide band four years later. They're actually getting stronger with each release. Their third record, Revelations, finds the foursome taking a page from their Rage Against the Machine roots. On Wide Awake, Chris Cornell berates George Bush for ignoring hurricane Katrina and America's other problems; elsewhere, he bemoans the precarious state of the world. Musically, this isn't much different from their last record -- Cornell's wail is out in full force and Tom Morello wanks on his guitar as usual -- but for the first time Audioslave sound more like a cohesive unit than a product of two groups spliced together. Revelations will still sound dated to many, but if you loved the mid-90s, this is a decent throwback.
