Overview

The EP is the audio-only counterpart to Alive in the Superunknown. "Jerry Garcia's Finger" is featured exclusively on Songs from the Superunknown. AllMusic staff writer Greg Prato gave the EP two and a half out of five stars. He called it a "solid (albeit short) collection of Soundgarden outtakes".

Alive in the Superunknown

The CD-ROM Alive in the Superunknown contains the first four tracks from Songs from the Superunknown plus a multimedia portion featuring photos of the band, a video game, four music videos ("The Day I Tried to Live", "Black Hole Sun", "My Wave", and "Fell on Black Days"), a performance/special effects video of "Superunknown", and a live video of "Kickstand", among other things. Entertainment Weekly said, "Nothing on Alive ... equals the mystery, humor, sonic impact, or imagination contained on any one of the tracks on Soundgarden's Superunknown album."[2]
