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.
A quick glance at the cover of Chris Cornell’s latest album can either be horribly misleading or painfully telling, depending on how you perceive it. Those who think that the image of an airborne Cornell smashing up a guitar represents that he still has the desire and ability to rock as he has done in the past are I can tell you in for a nasty surprise. A more accurate perception would be that the cover represents Cornell ditching his guitar and past whilst taking a dump on his already threatened legacy.
In case you didn't catch the symbolism, Chris Cornell is smashing a guitar on the cover of Scream because he's done with those six-strings - he's leaving it all behind for Timbaland, who has long wanted to leave hip-hop and R&B behind to make a rock album.
Lyrics to "Scream" song by Chris Cornell: I take a minute to tell you right And you can say what you want And turn around every night Someh. There's no need to scream, baby I'm standing right in front of your face Why? I know sometimes we don't get along So Chris sing the second verse to her, like this. Take a minute to tell you now And I don't have to raise my tone Take the level and bring it down I just want you to know. I got no trouble with what you said I don't even think you're wrong It's how you say it, you lose your head Girl, I'm standing right in front of you.

It’s really an album-oriented album. With beats, vibes and ideas flowing freely, they wrote and recorded Scream in just six weeks. Setting the tone, the drum machines and sleek electronica of the opening track, ‘Part Of Me’, revealed that Scream was a Chris Cornell album of a different stripe. Timbaland’s beats and atmospheric backdrops offered Cornell fresh vocal challenges, but he rose to the occasion in style on tracks as demanding as the lithe, Sly Stone-esque ‘Time’, the soul-tinged ‘Sweet Revenge’ and the cinematic ballad ‘Never Far Away’.
