A Really Good Rediscovery!!

I wasn't too enamoured with this album when I bought it back in '01. It just felt like a harsh contrast to No. 4, plus Days of the week was a poor choice for a lead-out single. As much of a huge STP fan that I am, I had to shelve this album for another day---I was not yet ready for this projet. About a year ago, I decided to pull my cd back out of my "archives" because I was hankering some STP that wasn't overly familiar with. WOW! I couldn't believe that I hadn't been jamming on this for the last several years! 3 of the first 4 songs are a sonic boom that you would expet from Stone Temple (especially Dumb Love & Coma--both are badazz). Most of the softer stuff on Shangri-la Dee Da have really good lyrical & melodic flows. There's a real homage to fatherhood and observing the important things in life. A real surprise for me was enjoying the "softer stuff" upon my rediscovery. Too Cool Quennie, Bi-Polar Bear, & Wonderful are stand-outs, aside from the thunderous tunes. This album covers all bases on the sonic scale. I wish that there had been a couple more harder tracks, like the early ones, but who am I to complain? This was a really good rediscovery, and I highly reccommend it.

Excellent

This album has songs that sound like Core and Purple, but they have definitely expanded their sound. There are pianos on this album. It doesn't all sound like 90's rock. There is a lot more David Bowie and Beatles type songs on this album. I think it is their second best album as a whole behind Purple. Very good, but if you expect the same sound as Core and Purple, you may be dissapointed.

Takes a while to get used to.

While the lead single is one of the worst songs they have put out.. I find the rest of the album to be decent. It takes a while to get used to the new sound but there are traces of their first 2 albums hidden in the psychidelic rock sound this album contains.

Favorites 3, 4, 8, 11, and 12 still deciding on Dumb Love.. its a weird song.

Anyway on a side note I don't like the title of the album or the cover I mean Shagri La Di Da? Really?.. but still its the music thats important.

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...
