iTunes Review

In stark contrast to the swaggering bravado of Stone Temple Pilots’ debut, Purple wallows in psychedelic murk littered with fractured psyches. Scott Weiland sounds downright frazzled on the violently careening "Unglued"; ditto for "Lounge Fly," which finds the group slowing to a menacing crawl. Throughout, their arena-sized sound is smothered in churning drums, weary guitars, and Weiland's ragged growl. Even on the catchy “Interstate Love Song”—which boasts a fabulous, Led Zeppelin-inspired groove—the band’s temperament comes stained with sadness and loss.

filler ?

once again the itunes review is dead wrong. i seriously wonder what these people are smoking sometimes. there is without a doubt no filler on this album. it is by far stps best album and its one of the top ten albums of the 90s. my favorite song is still remains. <3

Absolutely one of the top 10 albums of the 90's

10/10 I said in an earlier review that Nirvana's Nevermind is probably the best grunge album. Probably being the key word. This claim comes down to Nevermind, Superunknown, and S.T.P's Purple. Purple may not be the purest form of grunge, but it does rock. Like its predecessor, this album has its good singles; The difference is that this album shines even brighter with its lesser-known masterpieces ("Lounge Fly" "Still Remains" "Pretty Penny" and "Army Ants"). Each of these four songs (which may be the best four) exceed musical boundaries not even remotely attempted on Core. They are all perfect, while simoultaneously displaying the band's creativity. Everything about this album is perfect. It may be the best grunge album.

STP's Purple



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...
