- Sound: Relying less on heavy guitar riffs (but still very rocking) than their debut album, with "Out Of Exile", Audioslave presents a much more balanced album. Morello's guitar work is wonderfully rich, aggressive, and inspiring. Cornell's vocals are (as always) spot on. And the rhythm work of Commerford and Wilk is a solid and underrated force.

- Pour: Slightly hazy, pale gold with a frothy and firm 1.5 finger, white head that displays intricate and sustained lacing.
