Editorial Reviews

Stone Temple Pilots released their debut album in September 1992. The album, Core is now a classic, featuring such music/video favorites as "Sex Type Thing," "Plush" and "Wicked Garden." Purple, the band's second album, was released in June 1994 and entered the Billboard Top 200 at #1, where is remained for three straight weeks. Purple contains giants such as "Vasoline," "Interstate Love Song" and "Big Empty." Tiny Music...Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop was released in March 1996 and debuted Top 5. The band's third album includes the hits "Big Bang Baby" and "Lady Picture Show." 1997 and 1998 saw the Pilots involved in various extracurricular activities: Talk Show, a project that includes Dean and Robert; and Scott released his solo album 12 Bar Blues. October 1999 saw the release of No. 4, which yielded the hits "Down" and "Sour Girl." Shangri-La Dee Da followed in 2001. RIAA certifications include: Core 7x-platinum; Purple 5x-platinum; Tiny Music... Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop 2x-platinum; No. 4 1x-platinum. Other honors for the band over the years include a Grammy for "Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal" for "Plush," two American Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award, two Billboard Video Awards, and an MTV Video Music Award.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough collection of radio hits November 13, 2003
By S B
Format:Audio CD
If you are a passing fan and you just want the radio hits, this collection is one of the best of the MANY compilations competing for the boost from the 2003 holiday season sales. Unlike many of the rest though, the casual fan gets ALL the biggest radio hits (unlike Pearl Jam's 'Lost Dogs' or Tori Amos' 'Tales of Librarian') with no filler (unlike Peter Gabriel's 'Hit').
Serious fans will quibble about the song choices, as greatest hits does not equal best songs. (e.g., Only one song from "Shrangri-La"?!) But with any good band, reasonable ears/minds will differ, and besides, we make our own compilations anyway. Still, even for hardcore fans, there IS the decent new song, a harder edge tune titled "All in the Suit that You Wear", and the acoustic version of "Plush" from MTV Headbanger's Ball-1992 (which was a minor radio hit in an of itself).
I used to loathe this band back in 1992, when it seemed like they were just Johnny-come-latelies of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soudgarden, but I came to respect them more after I learned a little bit about the grunge scene (i.e., all the sonic similarities existed before any of these bands hit big). Plus I just can't get "Big Bang Baby" out of my head, and those chord changes on "Plush" and "Interstate Love Song" are truly infectious.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, but imperfect collection April 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
4.5 stars

Stone Temple Pilots certainly proved all their detractors wrong. Initially written off as nothing but Pearl Jam clones, Stone Temple Pilots proved to be one of the most creative and vital forces throughout the 1990s. Although they borrowed from the Seattle soundbook with their debut "Core" (1992), they found their own sound with subsequent albums. STP never stagnated or suffered a creative bust. They always put out quality albums. STP was always mixing it up with each new release. All five of their albums had their own unique sound and vibe. As previously stated, "Core" was the most grunge sounding album in the STP catalog. It was grunge music made as arena rock. "Purple" (1994) was more refined and the songs were more skillfully crafted. "Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop" (1996) eschewed the grunge style of the earlier albums, and instead opted for retro, 70s glam meets 90s modern rock. "No4" (1999) was a combination of the first three albums, and was also somewhat more rough-around-the-edges. The highly underrated "Shangri-La-Dee-Da" (2001) was a more refined, polished follow-up.

The greatest hits album "Thank You," is flawed, but great nonetheless. If you listened to modern rock radio throughout the 90s, you will undoubtedly be familiar with all these songs, as they were all radio staples, and remain so to this day. By listening to this album, you will see why STP was one of the best rock bands of the 1990s. They just wrote killer, killer catchy songs with infectious hooks. This CD is really a comprehensive overview of all their radio-hits. This compilation does an excellent job of representing the bands first three albums.

The problem with "Thank You" is its treatment of the last two STP albums "No4," and "Shangri-La-Dee-Da.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing November 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The CD/DVD set of "Thank You" was a tremendous way to exit the scene for Stone Temple Pilots. Its intention was for the guys to give one last gift back to the fans on their way out the door, and it really does just that. The CD is a terriffic compilation of the band's A-side singles, and the DVD has over three hours of incredible live footage, a photo gallery, as well as most all of the original music videos for the "Thank You" compilation of songs. This really is a classy effort by the band, and a great way for the fans to remember them. This is truly a must-have for not only any STP fan, but any early 90s glam rock fan as well. A+++
