Shangri-La Dee Da may not be STP's most commercial outing, but the disc's 13 tracks comprise a satisfying aural journey despite its lack of quick-fix hits along the lines of "Sex Type Thing" and "Wicked Garden." From the dark, grinding rhythms and obfuscated vocals of "Dumb Love" to the lovely "Wonderful" to the buoyant power pop of "Days of the Week" to the edgy and disturbing "Coma," myriad facets of the lineup's musical temperament are explored. "Bi-Polar Bear" hints at STP's humor, though Shangri-La is by no means lightweight; singer Scott Weiland's passionate and personal lyrics--especially on a touching ode to his infant son, "A Song for Sleeping"--are affecting and apt. The fifth outing from this California crew who've survived grunge and thrived in its aftermath is masterful and mature effort from a band who've spied some light at the end of their tunnel. --Katherine Turman

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.

His voice just goes with the music so well that it just makes them a very great and different band.

Initially written off as Pearl Jam clones, Stone Temple Pilots turned out to be one of the finest rock bands of the 1990s. Their first three albums "Core," (1992) "Purple," (1994) and "Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop" (1996) were among the best selling rock albums of the 90s and spawned many memorable singles that remain radio staples to this day.

Unfortunately Scott Weiland's drug busts and inner band turmoil stopped the LA quartet dead in their tracks.

The mid-to-late 90s saw Stone Temple Pilots go on a three year hiatus. During this time Dean and Robert DeLeo, (guitar, bass) and Eric Kretz (drums) formed the band Talk Show with singer Dave Coutts for their 1997 self-titled album. The following year saw the release of Scott Weiland's "12 Bar Blues." While both albums were strong, they failed to match the sales of Stone Temple Pilots. Unable to find commercial success without the other, Weiland and the rest of Stone Temple Pilots reconciled for 1999's "No4." The album was a strong return to form and the band regained their status as one of rocks premier acts. The band returned two years later for 2001s fifth and final "Shangri-LA DEE DA."

"Shangri-LA DEE DA" is probably the most underappreciated album in STP's catalogue. Sales were hurt because the band didn't initially tour to support the album and also because it failed to receive a huge push by Atlantic. The album stalled at Gold, thus becoming the only STP album failing to achieve platinum status. The album consequently slid under the radar of the general public, who to this day remain unaware of what a fine album Stone Temple Pilots swan song really is.

Much like "No4," "Shangri-LA DEE DA" takes its cue from the first three STP albums.

This is without a doubt the best rock cd released this year (2001). I thought Number 4 was a solid effort, but this cd is light years better. The first 3 STP cd's are classics, but I think this is their most complete recording date. It's got everything: "Dumb Love" is a rocker that kicks the cd off, leading into the first single "Days of the Week". "Wonderful" is one of the best ballads you'll hear and you also have "Coma" and "Transmissions From a Lonely Room", both stellar tracks. In fact there really isn't a weak track on the cd. Above all you have great musicianship and Weiland's incredible vocals.
If anyone can bring rock and roll back to the forefront it's STP and "Shangri-La Dee Da.

Shangri La Dee Da is easily the Stone Temple Pilot's best album ever, the musicianship is excellent, Scott Weiland's voice is in top form, and most important of all the songs are great. There is something for everyone on this album from STP's trademark grunge inspired hard rock to meaningful ballads to straightforward pop rock.Read more ›

Ok listen up. Im getting really REALLY tired of hearing about Core. Core, core, core! Yes Core was and is still a great album. I own it along with 7 million other people. BUT CORE WAS 10 YEARS AGO FOLKS, LETS MOVE ONTO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT! This band has matured so well musically, and I am very pleased with the new NON COMMERCIAL, NON MAINSTREAM album. This is why these guys are still around people, because they dont crank out Core again every couple of years. They are talented musicians who reinvent their music in a different fashion every album. They write music that is important to them, not Plush part 5 which you want to hear.

Thank God for creative artists like STP who have stayed true to the music and haven't given a flying poo over what the public "supposedly" wants. I've been starving for a decent ROCK album ever since the latest Dandy Warhols release (over a year ago). Shangri-La Dee Da (despite the annoying title) fills the bill nicely. Each song is well crafted and harkens back to the great traditions of Rock. The CD, as a whole, is destined to become a classic.
Haunting vocals, relentlessly creative - and precise - bass and percussion and, oh yes, some of the very best guitar work you will ever hear on ANY rock album, ever. By the way, on the way to growing up to adulthood, did the idea of intelligent lyrics ever appeal to you? Whatever anyone says or thinks, STP has grown WAY BEYOND Core, musically, lyrically, and in all other ways. 'Core' is a great CD but what always bothered this reviewer about STP was the lack of consistency. Certain songs (frequently the hits played on the radio) sounded great but when I bought the CD, I kept hitting the skip button to avoid what sounded like 'filler' (or somewhat lesser songs). 'Purple' showed marked improvement and, for that matter, 'Tiny Music' was their most consistent CD to date. 'No. 4' is a great CD - no question - but awefully hard to take at times (like they were trying too hard). Still, each of STP's later efforts easily surpass their previous ones. Some of the reviewers in this space need to pull their heads out of their bongs and grow up, way up, past 'Core'.
The latest from STP is the culmination of all their skills. A coming-together of hard rock, 'pop' sensibility, and the STP style. A great record (period). Long Live STP!
