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

Atlantic recording group Stone Temple Pilots has announced the upcoming release of their hugely anticipated new album. 'STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' - the Grammy Award-winning band's first all-new collection in close to a decade - will arrive in stores and at all online retailers around the globe on May 25th. Produced by Stone Temple Pilots and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Dave Matthews Band, My Chemical Romance), 'STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' sees one of rock's biggest bands continuing to explore their enduring approach to music - melding big rock riffs, classic pop hooks, and the restless experimentalism of glam, punk, and psychedelia. Stone Temple Pilots - Scott Weiland, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz - will introduce fans to the new album at their first live date of 2010, performing as part of the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas. The show - slated for Thursday, March 18th at the famed Austin Music Hall, and presented by StubHub, the world's largest ticket marketplace - kicks off an extensive worldwide 2010 schedule for STP, with U.S. dates, radio festivals, and a European tour slated to follow. A full-scale North American summer tour will also be announced in the coming weeks.

Well I can see alot of ppl dissing this record saying it's not heavy STP and so on, but if you let the material sink in after a few listens you'll get the genius that is Stone Temple Pilots. Personally I love this album from start to finish - it's mostly straight up rock n' roll with poppy melodies, of course STP songs have always been about the melodic hook that makes them so infectious... There are also elements of Velvet Revolver on tracks such as Peacoat complete with wah effect laden guitar solo. Speaking of guitars, the guitars on this album is phenomenal, lately Dean has become my favourite rock guitar player as I now truly realize how great he is not just on this record but on all the previous ones. He plays a really superb and thrilling slide guitar solo and ending on Hickory Dichotomy that blows me away. Hickory Dichotomy is a personal highlight, but every song is beautiful in its own right. Another great, lovely, aurally orgasmic slide guitar on album closer Maver which will make you smile, well I purchased the deluxe version which includes Samba Nova which is not new to me and it seems like they didn't re-record it for this release but it's a another fantastic, laid back track. Too bad they didn't release About A Fool which was advertised at first as being on the deluxe version. The three live tracks of Vasoline, Hickory and Between the Lines are nice to own and fun to listen to but I don't think they are essential. But still, I gotta say, if you're an STP fan and by that I mean someone who also likes the less grungy/heavy material on Tiny Music (Bagman would have fitted perfectly on that album) and Shangri, this album is recommended.Read more ›

Okay, honestly, this is more of a three-and-a-half star review. As a fan of STP over the years, I love that they've stayed on course..... ironically meaning that they've released another album that sounds like none of their other albums.

That being said, there are some tracks that sound like what you'd call "vintage STP." "Take A Load Off," for example, has the soaring chorus (with Scott once again employing the use of the word "Yeah" in place of something with meaning....... I'm so glad he's out of Velvet Revolver......), with a grungy verse.

As soon as you move on to "Huckleberry Crumble," it becomes more obvious that the DeLeo's have been thinking 60's and 70's rock. While some people lament the fact that some of the tracks on here sound like old Aerosmith and Bowie ("First Kiss On Mars"), I ask "why lament?" Bowie and Aerosmith haven't done music as good as their seventies stuff since.... well... the seventies, so why not get some great music in that style done by somebody else?

"Hickory Dichotomy" has a great funky groove and is definitely among the best tracks on the album. Not surprisingly, they released the best tracks for streaming about three weeks before the album was available, so it's when you move on to the other tracks, the disappointment sets in. "Dare If You Dare" has a great, very DeLeo guitar riff and verse melody ripped from what could be an unreleased "Sgt. Pepper" song, but the chorus is so insipid both in lyrics and vocal delivery, that it's almost worth skipping altogether.

"Cinnamon" is a gem, though. Does it sound like good Oasis? It does. But note the word "good." (But Scott's back to his "I can use the word 'Yeah' for a full chorus!' thing....

For many years, I have craved for a rock record that is good and enjoyable. This is one of them. I want to listen to an album that is bathed with strong, vibrant melodies, chugging, colorful rhythm sections and lyrics espousing love, life and yearning. I want to listen to an album that does not merely serve as a backdrop for a few enticing singles. More importantly, I want to listen to an album that sounds pure and fresh every time I hear it. The Stone Temple Pilots' self-titled album fits all these categories perfectly. If this album does anything good, hopefully two of those things will be being a commercial success and restoring the reputation of a great, unfairly undervalued rock band who have not worked together since 2001.

Any idea that a band reforms and decides to make a retro record opens themselves to ridicule. We have seen many artists look to the past for inspiration and they have been castigated by critics and fans for being "nostalgic" instead of "making something new". Indeed, throughout the entire album, there are references to the Animals, the Zombies, T. Rex, Mott the Hoople, Joy Division, Speedy West, the Raiders, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, and of course, the two rock icons that the band admires and loves: The Beatles and David Bowie. This album makes no apologies in admitting that it is merely a retro record: the lunk-headed, delightful "Huckleberry Crumble" makes no attempt to hide that it features the guitar riffs of Aerosmith's "Same Old Song and Dance"; and the charmingly weird country ditty "Hickory Dichotomy" has so many Jimmy Page-like chords that one would be hard pressed to wonder if it is a Zeppelin parody the same way "Back in the U.S.S.R" was a Chuck Berry parody and "Why Don't We Do It On the Road" was a Little Richard parody in The Beatles.

You couldn't be more wrong about his voice. It's fine and they still put on a hell of a show live. The problem is the new direction as a band they started moving in after Tiny Music and have since continued to follow even after their 9 year hiatus. They were at their best during the Core/Purple... Read More
