Album Review

Purple established that Stone Temple Pilots were not one-album wonders but Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop illustrates that the band aren't content with resting on their laurels. Without abandoning their trademark hard rock, STP have added a new array of sounds that lend depth to their immediately accessible hooks. Dean DeLeo layers his guitar tracks to create distinctive, multi-textured sounds that make his riffs more powerful. Though there are hints of grunge scattered throughout the album, what makes Tiny Music impressive is how the band brings in elements of psychedelia, trancy shoegaze, jangle pop, and other forms of melodic alternative guitar pop. By accentuating their pop tendencies in both their riffs and melodies, they are able to slip in a number of creative arrangements which manage to expand their musical repertoire significantly. Although the lyrics are nearly as ambitious as the music, they simply don't have the same weight. But with a band like Stone Temple Pilots, the music is what matters and Tiny Music showcases the band at their most tuneful and creative.

Customer Reviews

Great album of the 90's

Arty, grungy, Zeppliny, and seriously an awesome album. Thier first two albums were good, but this one is sincere, sensitive, and slick. Awesome vocals, GREAT bass playing, fun hooks,etc. Get this one.

And they say drugs are bad...

This is your grunge on drugs. It's where grunge goes once the depression's been replaced by manic activity. Tiny music is an absolute lo-fi rock classic, and a whole lot of fun. It is probably Weiland and Co.'s best work.

This is psychedelic grunge, and if that sounds weird, it's because it definitely is.

Stone Temple Pilots were able to turn alternative rock into stadium rock; naturally, they became the most critically despised band of their era. Accused by many critics of being nothing more than ripoff artists who pilfered from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains, the bandmates nevertheless became major stars in 1993. And the influence of those bands was apparent in their music, although Stone Temple Pilots did manage to change things around a bit. STP were more concerned with tight song...
