Editorial Reviews

High Rise is the 2013 Stone Temple Pilots EP featuring Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on vocals, and includes the # 1 hit at both Active Rock and Mainstream Rock radio, "Out Of Time."

Customer Reviews

The rest of the album sounded like throwaway "B" tracks.

While i wasn't a fan of Linkin Park, i have to say that i instantly noticed that whatever you say, Chester had a really awesome voice.
J. B. MARTIN
The closing "Tomorrow" sounds a bit like an updated, poppy "Still Remains" and makes for a good closer.

I enjoy STP but have not felt their work was consistent since their second album - everything that followed had some hits and misses rather than containing the full awesomeness of their first two records. Frankly, I'd written them off as going nowhere at this point, with Scott Weiland's long-running personal drama.

I hate Linkin Park. I hate it enough I won't even go look up if I spelled their name right. I could write an essay on why but the short reason is the vocalists and lyrics, brought to us in part by Chester Bennington. I am all for angst in music but his work with LP felt designed to rob priveleged 12 year-olds of their money by reminding them to scream an awful lot and be sad, sad little people.

So when I listened to the single for this EP on youtube, I was doing so in that way one watches a train hit someone on the tracks - you can't look away even though you really want to.

I did not expect to enjoy it. I did not expect to be impressed. However, I very much was. It works. Each song is tightly composed, memorable and catchy. And Chester has a great range that conveys depth and emotion - most importantly MATURE depth and emotion. No screaming at mommy and daddy to shut up but also pay attention to me blah blah.

Frankly, if this was the lineup for the future of STP, I would not think twice about Scott Weiland, he had his time and as great as it was its not coming back. Time to move forward with what sounds good, and as reluctant as I am to say it this really does. A full album or two more of this and I might even forgive Chester his earlier works.

Just to make this clear, I'm not giving this a bad review because I hate Linkin Park/Chester and want Scott Weiland back. To give some background on where I was coming from, I listened to Linkin Park when I was in Middle School-ish. Upon entering high school and college, my music tastes matured and I got into more classic and indie rock bands. LP doesn't appeal to me as much as they did when I was younger, but I still think they're better than STP fans will give the band credit for. And Chester Bennington is absolutely one of the best singers of this generation. I can't think of a better alternative singer to STP if it wasn't going to be Scott.

I went into this album optimistically, and I feel like I have the unique perspective of being very familiar with the discography of both LP and STP. But I was not pleased at all with the results. All the songs here feel like very generic "meat and potatoes" hard rock. The riffs are very uninspired, Chester's vocals feel a little imitative of Weiland, and it doesn't seem to have the idiosyncratic edge that made STP very unique in the past. It just feels like they rushed this album out very quickly.

While I completely understand why Scott was removed from the band, it is clear that he gave STP the more varied glam, pop, and psychedelic influences that made STP unique. You can see it in his solo albums. I also think STP producer Brenden O'Brien played a "Fifth Beatle" role with the band, and his presence is another that can be felt missing, as it did on the self-titled album.

I'm definitely not writing off this new incarnation of STP altogether. This just isn't a very inspiring start. I hope once they get a label and get really down to recording an album, we get more interesting music.

When Stone Temple Pilots fired Scott Weiland this past March most fans pretty much thought that was it. For over 20 years Weiland has been the face and voice of STP and the idea of the band continuing on without him seemed absurd. Sure, some bands like AC/DC or Van Halen have changed lead singers, but for STP to do so, so far in their career seemed impossible. While the DeLeo brothers and Eric Kretz are very talented, I Personally thought that a Weiland-less Stone Temple Pilots would be like the post Bach-Skid Row, a band that was just a shell of its former self--playing to half-empty bars and releasing little heard new music to an apathetic, dwinding fanbase. And that's probably what would have happened to STP had they not recruited a big name singer--someone contemporary who might even bring in some new fans. Luckily Stone Temple Pilots were able to score a major coup with the addition of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington.

To be honest, I was not overly enthusiastic when Bennington was announced as the band's new singer as I was never a huge Linkin Park fan--was just never really into the whole Nu-Metal thing or most 00s rock in general. I am also a huge Scott Weiland fan and didn't really want to see the band continue without him. That said, I decided to give the new line-up a chance. The band were smart to release a new single, "Out of Time," as soon as the announcement of Bennington as their new singer was made as it would give the band a chance to, as the cliché goes, "let the music do the talking" and also maybe reduce the handwringing from fans eager to hear what the new version of Stone Temple Pilots might sound like.

"Out of Time" is the first song on the band's new EP "High Rise" (2013), the first new material from the band since 2010's self-titled album.
