    Peter Cornell crafts an instantly impactful and passionately powerful collection of songs with Champion. His voice resounds soulfully during the catchy opener "Madman" before giving way to the pensive ruminations of "Insides". The title track comes off victorious as Cornell confidently carries a big refrain bolstered by his robust pipes. "Ghost" haunts and hypnotizes at all the right moments as "Attic" echoes a dark sense of bliss.

    As much as each song is elegantly entrancing on its own, the ten-track whole puts together a starkly soaring pastiche that beckons multiple listens. The finale of "Shin" is ultimately emblematic of that cohesion, giving a last breath to this vibrant being of an album.

    Ultimately, "Champion" is essential listening that's both emotional and evocative. It's a singer-songwriter gem of the highest order.
