Everything happens for a reason. The majority of global belief systems have this concept at their core. Notables from actress Marilyn Monroe to the Greek philosopher Leucippus believed in this. Fundamental to the matter at hand, it is a belief held by Scott Weiland, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz, the members of Stone Temple Pilots.

Editorial Reviews

Product Description


This fine band's powerful music has been often overshadowed by singer Scott Weiland's well-documented drug and legal troubles. Not to mention that STP's 1992 debut, Core, was dismissed by critics as "Seattle lite." Nonetheless, STP has managed to make four noteworthy albums, No. 4 being the latest in their solid and cohesive body of work. No. 4 is not groundbreaking, but the quartet's aggressive, dynamic hard rock is emotion-packed and timeless. Not as hit-heavy as its predecessors, No. 4 is nevertheless strong and diverse. On the gentler side, there's the lilting '60s-influenced "I Got You" and "Atlanta," which is almost Doors-like in its dreamy mood. Heavier fare includes the midtempo heavy riffing opener "Down" and the winning but not-so-subtly titled "Sex and Violence," which matches an aggressive, linear feel with a cool punk vibe. At 42 minutes, the only thing wrong with No. 4 is that there's not enough of it. --Katherine Turman

Good lyrics, great song.

This cd has what the hardcore STP fans want and what the people who loved Tiny Music liked.
Truly STP's best work, and one of the most solid, and great rock albums ever.

There have been mixed listener reviews of this STP release. The detractors' complaints have been that No.4 doesn't sound like other STP releases. Well, they're right. But a band that puts out album after album that sounds like the previous one has found a quick way to get me to stop buying and listening. And if you are really familiar with the music of STP you know each album has been different from the one before it.
No.4 definitely sounds like Stone Temple Pilots. This baby rocks. But it is clear the band has grown musically and personally. That's what you will hear in this music. Scott Weiland's vocals continue to impress as he goes from growling and menacing to Morrisonesque to a kinda edgy pop vocalist. "Sour Girl" takes an interesting musical turn, coming off with a post-punk melodic XTC vibe. "Heaven and Hot Rods" sounds like it was written for people who drive convertibles. Fast. With the jams cranked till the woofer begins to tear. "Down" is vintage STP.
Let's hope Scott stays clean and out of jail as they finally get to promote No.4...a year later. There had been rumors the band would replace him if he couldn't get his act together. Well, it wouldn't be STP. Scott's vocals and song writing, no matter which style he chooses are an integral part of the STP sound. What ever it happens to be this week.
The boys are simply moving on.

No. 4 doesn't contain as many hits as their first three albums. It isn't as heavy as "Core," it isn't as catchy as "Purple," it isn't as ambitious as "Tiny Music...". So, how is it their best?
At first, it isn't. I'm sure you've read it takes time to like the album, and it's true. But after a while, you start to like it...then love it...then think of it as one of your best CDs you own.
This album is magical, mysterious , dark, isolated, angry, offhand, powerful, regretful, psychedelic and hypnotising. All in all, it has to be the best album of 1999. VERY, VEEERY underrated.
It's hard to pick a best song. "Down" and "Sour Girl" were both huge top ten hits, and they couldn't be more different sounding. "Down" is among the heaviest songs STP ever did (with absolutely AMAZING vocals), and "Sour Girl" is a catchy 60s-esque pop tune with a cool, weird video. But the singles aren't the stars on this album...
"Atlanta" has got to be the most enchanting, amazzing song I have ever heard. The bridge (that shows Scott's ever increasng vocal range) will get you HIGH. Well, not really, but it's the closest thing to it naturally...
Every song works great together here, like it's a concept album. "Pruno" could be a hit single if it were released..."Church On Tuesday" is a catchy little pop song that's instantly enjoyable..."No Way Out" is an intense, angry, mournful song about hatred for heroin and what it was doing to Scott at the time..."Sex and Violence" is a heavy, catchy rocker that is likely the next single..."Glide" is a great song after a while, adding more pschidelia to the album...

It's hard to believe that ROLLING STONE only gave this album 3 out of 5 stars while continuing to champion the likes of Ol' Dirty Bastard and other talentless performers. STP delivers what is probably their heaviest album since "Core," while at the same time providing a counterbalance of dreamy, atmospheric pop a la the Beatles. Scott Weiland has never sounded better, displaying a dazzling array of vocals ranging from gritty and hoarse to almost angelic. The rest of the band is solid as ever, with Eric Kretz and Dean DeLeo locking horns to form one of the best rhyth, sections in recent rock history. The guitars on the album are generally heavy, but do at times take a break from all the noise to deliver more harmonious guitar lines. The album kicks off with the rolling "Down," the thunderous first single that recalls elements of STP's earlier hit "Sex Type Thing." "No. 4" may not be as radio-friendly as its predecessors, but it will definitely please the band's fans. It is STP's most diverse effort to date, and one that becomes increasingly enjoyable with repeated listenings.

In 1996 when STP released Tiny Music... I bought it and it was my favorite album by them. So after 3 years when I heard that No.4 was going to be released I naturally set very high standards for it. I must say it blew me away. I didn't think they had the time to actually write and record a full album with Scott's problems but they once again shocked everyone and delivered the best album of their career. If you're expecting a polished studio album this is not the one. No.4 is plain and simply a raw rock album from the beginning of Down to the end of Atlanta the album blends straight forward guitar rock with trippy delicate ballads such as Sour Girl and Atlanta the latter features Scott sounding almost identical to Jim Morrison on a song that could have been an outtake from Strange Days by the Doors. The definate strong point of the album are the rockers such as Down, No Way Out, Sex & Violence, MC5, Heaven & Hot Rods, and Pruno. There is not a bad song on the entire cd. Another great song is Church on Tuesday which doesn't quite qualify as a ballad or a rocker it's somewhere in between. This album is a classic which I reccomend to anyone who likes good music and for first time listeners pick up the other 3 albums because they are amazing as well. STP=Great Music
