Music Review: Stone Temple Pilots

One of the best grunge bands ever returns grunge-less, with the musical styles being pop-rock and classic rock, and nothing anywhere close to anything that made you and me a fan of theirs. Stone Temple Pilots has Stone Temple Pilots jamming again, and the band is having fun, and that’s all it is. When a great band releases a self-titled album, it gives out the impression that something monumental is being offered to long-time fans, but Stone Temple Pilots sound old and too content to make you feel the way they did with Core and Purple (my favourite). Sure, go ahead and check out Stone Temple Pilots by Stone Temple Pilots, but be warned: they sound like a below-average international pop-rock band that has come to Mumbai to play at Independence Rock.

    I didn’t like it either. I haven’t enjoyed anything by STP since Tiny Music.

    I have no problem with the obvious David Bowie and classic rock influences but the Pilots could’ve made some good songs while they were at it 😐

    Core changed my life man. I was an alcoholic, druggie, loser and feeling shit-all about life. Then i heard core and stopped feeling like shit completely.

    and core did one more thing. Which i don’r remember anymore…

    There really is nothing that is below average from this record, ok maybe the cover art but thats it.

    The cd has a striped down sounds unlike any stp album before, causing many to say “what happened to there edge”, if you get a chance to hear the new stuff played live next to there “classics” youll realize how quality it is. Not sure what you mean by sounding old but no doubt theres a classic rock vibe to this album.

    This is an album that has to be given a few spins for the groove and vibe to take hold. It took me 3 full takes for me to really get into it and now I feel its up there with “Purple” and “Tiny music .. ” as there best work.

    They can still write great tunes, and this album has plenty, you should really give it a few more tries.

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
