''Scream'' is the third solo studio album by American musician Chris Cornell. Released on March 10, 2009 through Suretone Records and Mosley Music Group, it marked a shift from Cornell's previous musical efforts with the exclusion of some guitar and rock elements that were replaced with producer Timbaland's electronic pop soundscapes. The album was promoted with the release of five digital singles and three music videos, and was met with mostly negative reviews. The album debuted in the U.S at number 10 on the ''Billboard'' 200 with 26,000 copies sold.

===Recording history===

With the idea of remixing songs from his previous album ''Carry On'' (2007), Cornell first came into contact with Timbaland. However, the collaboration evolved into the duo writing and recording an entire album in just six weeks, notably with the conceptual direction of "tying it all together musically", which Cornell describes as " back to albums that I listened to when I was a kid, where the music never stops" and that it "begs to be listened to on headphones all the way through".

===Musical style===

Billboard reported that ''Scream'' shows Cornell moving "in a much more R&B-oriented direction, with busy drum machine beats, buffed-up chorus vocals and string samples filling the nooks and crannies", comparing it to Gnarls Barkley and less that of "the guitar-driven music of Cornell's past with Soundgarden and Audioslave". Despite the controversy caused by teaming up with Timbaland, Cornell insisted that he still played an integral part of the album's creation and didn't do what "Timbaland told me to do", further noting that they "didn't really have that relationship" and "it wasn't that type of a process. It was more, he would bring in a beat, an idea, I would write to it and sing it, and we would move on kind of to the next thing."

Describing the album as a whole, Cornell compared it to Pink Floyd's ''The Dark Side of the Moon'' and Queen's ''A Night at the Opera'', citing the psychedelic elements that Timbaland brought into the production.

However, while a majority of the album is an R&B styled album, the hidden track "Two Drink Minimum" sees Cornell playing a blues-influenced rock song, with an acoustic guitar, organ, drums, and harmonica.

==Reception==

In the U.S, the album debuted at number 10 on the ''Billboard'' 200 and thus became Cornell's first top 10 solo album. The next week it dropped 55 places to number 65, which was the largest second-week drop for a top 10-debuting album in two and a half years. It was also a commercial disappointment, spending only 10 weeks on the ''Billboard'' 200.

Nine Inch Nails creator Trent Reznor attacked the album, condemning it as "embarrassing" on Twitter.

==Track listing==

All songs written by Chris Cornell, Timothy Mosley and Jerome Harmon, additional writing credits below.

==Rock Versions==

There are currently two ''Scream'' tracks that have had "Rock Versions" of them released. The first being an alternate version of "Long Gone", produced by Howard Benson, which was accompanied by an official music video directed by DJ Skee's Skee.tv.

The second track to come to light was a "Rock Version" of "Never Far Away". This version was not a remix, but a completely new recording, produced by Jordon Zadorozny. It has yet to be released for purchase, but has been, with permission from Cornell himself, made available for streaming by Alan Cross. In October 2009, it was reported that Cornell was working with Jordon Zadorozny and Michael Friedman to rework the entire ''Scream'' album but this remains unconfirmed. This now seems unlikely as Cornell has now rejoined Soundgarden.
