Editors’ Notes

Stone Temple Pilots initially angered the grunge elite for finding ways to turn the angst into surefire radio hits. The group’s pop appeal while maintaining its harder edges made them that rarest of groups in the ‘90s: one that embraced the rock stardom that other bands professed to hate. Reunited after years of estrangement, STP sound like the perfect hard rock unit. Singer Scott Weiland can punch forth like the rock frontman he so naturally is and the DeLeo brothers provide him with his strongest backing in years. Whether it’s the brash attack of “Between the Lines” or the retro-boogie of “Huckleberry Crumble” and “Hazy Daze,” STP are practically a course in classic-rock history. “Dare If You Dare” has power-ballad scripted onto its pounding sorrow. “Bagman” sounds like a power-pop band turning the amps way up. “Fast As I Can” rocks out like Bad Company and Aerosmith finding their way down the L.A. Freeway. The deluxe edition includes several bonus cuts, including live versions of tracks from the new album and their classic hit “Vasoline.”

Customer Reviews

Welcome back!

The album is a revisit to the classic sound that probably inspired the band to become a band in the first place. Along with echoes of Aerosmith, Zepplin, Petty, there are definitely sounds of Cheap Trick as well. For those in search of "Core", "Tiny Music" you won't find it here. Then again that has been the trend for all the STP albums of the past. No one album sounds like the one previously released. Scott's voice is better than ever and the De Leo brothers along with Eric lay great riffs and beats. This album is one of those repeat listens and u will find that the album grows on you. For the die hards you will find gratitude for the band's return. For those who don't get it, well maybe you never will. The self titled album had what very few releases have... Courage. Courage to be real and courage to do what's not expected and follow the sounds of the band's soul. I think that one of the songs on the album says it best, "Dare if you dare". STP "dares" to be great and the album is probably a culmination of the band's healing process as it embarks on their new journey. They listened to old records together and did what very few dare to do. Do what they believe in. I believe that the album is great and deserves an unbiased listener. Welcome back STP.

True stp is dead

The hard rock that saved the 90's is now a semi beattles/ u2 trash. What happend to great albums like core and purple.

Take This Record For What It Is.

Finally this album is here! I wasn't sure at first how I felt about it because I have been listening to the first 5 for so long. Then I realized that I had to take it for what it is. This is a good and catchy record. I don't think it's their best but it's more interesting than most stuff that is put out there these days by other bands.

No it's not Core, Purple, Tiny Music...etc. and it's not supposed to be. The same people complaining that it's not are probably the same who would complain about it sounding too similar if it did. There are definitely some good songs and STP fans should give it a chance and let it grow on them.

One thing that sets this album apart from the other 5 is that it sounds like parts of other ones but that creates for a distinct sound in itself. No one can accuse this band of trying to stay with one sound and not being creative, while songs like "Huckleberry Crumble" and "Dare If You Dare" and "Cinnamon" may not sound like traditional, they still maintain just enough classic STP nuances to remind this is still the same band pushing themselves. The 90's are gone so enjoy this record for what it is, a good listen.

Biography

Formed: 1992 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
