Nemohl se dočkat, až to vydá. Tento okamžik je hořkosladký, protože přirozeně by tu měl být sám, ale tímto společným albem sdílíme zármutek i radost. Všechny nás letos mohl svým hlasem pomoci uzdravit a pozvednout nás, zejména během prázdnin. Jsem na něj a na tuto ohromující nahrávku tak hrdá: ilustruje, proč vždy bude milován a ctěn jako jeden z největších hlasů naší doby.“2000 x 1270 Chris Cornell. ©Andrew Stuart

Review
By Jackson Langford, 11th December 2020
Ξ★  No One Sings Like You Anymore, the final album by the late Chris Cornell.
The album, which is Cornell’s last fully completed record, consists of ten covers recorded by the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman back in 2016. The songs were personally chosen and sequenced by Cornell to celebrate artists and music that inspired his own work. Some of the covers include John Lennon’s ‘Watching The Wheels’, Carl Hall’s ‘You Don’t Know Nothing About Love’, Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and more. Find the full tracklist below.
Ξ★  ‘No One Sings Like You Anymore’ will also feature Cornell’s cover of Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Patience’, which was released by his estate in July to mark what would have been the singer’s 56th birthday.
Ξ★  “This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish,” Cornell’s wife Vicky said in a press statement.
Ξ★  “His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favorite artists and the songs that touched him. He couldn’t wait to release it. This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album.
Ξ★  “All of us could use his voice to help heal and lift us this year, especially during the holiday season. I am so proud of him and this stunning record, which to me illustrates why he will always be beloved, honored, and one the greatest voices of our time.”
Ξ★  Cornell passed away in May 2017 in Detroit, just hours after playing a Soundgarden concert at the city’s Fox Theatre. A film based on his life, titled Black Days, was reported to begin filming back in September of this year, though it was later revealed that the film had not been sanctioned or approved by Cornell’s estate.
Ξ★  In December 2019, it was revealed that Vicky Cornell was suing Soundgarden over “hundreds and thousands of dollars” in unpaid royalties. The band later countersued her, claiming she used money intended for charity, raised through a Chris Cornell tribute concert, on herself and her family. The band dropped their countersuit in July of this year.
