Soundgarden – Louder Than Love - 35th Anniversary Vinyl Reissues

2019 marks the 35th anniversary of the formation of Soundgarden and they have been celebrating this year by releasing colored vinyl reissues of their albums via A&M/UMe in conjunction with The Sound of Vinyl.  The final release in the series is Louder Than Love, their sophomore album and major label debut, originally released in 1989 on A&M Records.
Additionally, Louder Than Love turned 30 this year and is available now on a single slab of 180gm translucent yellow vinyl.  The album was the early catalyst for their highly-influential metallic grunge sound and first introduced their penchant for off-kilter rhythms. It is highlighted by standouts such as the thunderous quasi-title track “Loud Love” and the chugging “Hands All Over” which holds up today despite its clunky lyrics.
