Editors' Notes Getting in touch with his folkier side has paid off for Chris Cornell on Higher Truth—a showcase of the Soundgarden frontman's peerless voice set against a mostly acoustic backdrop.

But for a real taste of Cornell’s versatility as a songwriter, check out the tuneful melodies he strings together on the beautiful title track and the album’s centerpiece, “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart".
