top song in the pack HGinCT14
few songs can really capture the essence of Rock Band drumming. some songs are completely repetitive and offer nothing for the imagination, while others are so insane that they can cause seizures. This song is niether of those and is a mellow song that is sure to pique any drummer's interest.

The song is very similar the Block Hole Sun, which isn't really too surprising considering they both came off of Superunknown. this song is a bit quicker and on Pro truly does shine on drums.

The chart is littered with little quick fills and grooves and one REALLY nasty fill during the guitar solo that will catch you off guard if not prepared.

If you buy one song from this pack, let this be it.

Awful JiggyJay
I wasn't expecting much from this song when I downloaded the pack. I thought it would be no more than a two dot difficulty level, and was surprised to see 4 dots on the difficulty rating in guitar. It has those extra two dots for the wrong reasons.
The charting is horrible. The main riff is the same pattern of alternating chords with an awkward chord hammeron combination that feels like it came from Guitar Hero. It's a redblue-yelloworange-redblue combo that happens in a second, and steadily ruined my streak the more times I saw it. Which was four minutes, since IT IS THE MAIN RIFF FOR THE WHOLE SONG.
The only real break from the awkwardness is an okay guitar solo. There are trill lanes and some quick cascades that are fun to hit. But that only lasts 30 seconds or so, and then it is back to the awkwardly charted main riff.
I love this song, just like I love the rest of the album, but I cannot recommend this for guitarist. The only reason I didn't give this 1 star is because I like the band and the song, and the solo is okay.
To be honest this song would have been far better if they let it be two dots in difficulty and made those hammeron chords easier to hit.

Everything about this track is painful and annoying and repetitive on guitar. There isn't a single part of this song that is remotely fun.

Watching is is interesting, since it's all over the fret board and the pattern changes a few times throughout the duration of the song, but every variation on the pattern is either hand-crampingly annoying to play or boring as sin, alongside some of the most annoying and most boring charts all at once.

I'm noticing more and more that Soundgarden have the same problem with all of their guitar charts in this pack. Some good ideas, some solid riffs, and some real skill behind the real tracks that just don't translate to Rock Band at all due to the length and repetition.

Plus, as an aside, they also have this cock-teasing tendency to sound like they're about to change things up with a solo or a bridge or some variation on the annoying, repetitive patterns, only to back out at the last second, giving you another 12 reps of the same riff you just did before teasing you again, only to give you 6 more reps of the riff you just did.

Soundgarden tease me with their talent and uniqueness only to have it stricken from me as I come to realize their work is just not fun to play at all.

if I could give this any lower a score, I would.

I could copy and paste this exact review on like, 3/4 of the soundgarden songs in Rock Band. The major exceptions - at least on Guitar - being Spoonman and Superunknown. I only bought this pack because those two songs are a tonne of fun and some of my favorites on their respective discs (Rock Band 2 and 4, respectively). Huge mistake.

Avoid at all cost if you play Guitar.
