Editorial Reviews

Army of Anyone features Richard Patrick, the lead singer of Filter, Dean and Robert DeLeo, founding members of Stone Temple Pilots, and drummer Ray Luzier. The foundation of the group was laid when Richard Patrick enlisted the DeLeos to help him co-write a song for the Filter album he was working on at the time. The result "A Better Place," turned out to be prophetic, and the beginning of something new. Within a couple of days, the three musicians decided they would take this working relationship to the next level, and Army of Anyone was born.

As a massive fan of Stone Temple Pilots I was eager to hear the DeLeo brother's new project, their first album since Stone Temple Pilots underrated swan-song "Shangri-LA DEE DA" (2001). But without Scott Weiland could they make a memorable album? The DeLeo's 1997 Talk Show project (which featured singer Dave Coutts) was good, but hardly up-to-par with STP.

While the DeLeo brother's may have written STP's classic songs and brought the killer riffs and grooves to the table, it was singer Scott Weiland who molded the songs and brought much creativity to eclecticism to the band. STP was more than just one man; it was the chemistry of the DeLeo brothers and Weiland that made Stone Temple Pilots one of the best rock bands from the 1990s.

Without Weiland, the DeLeo brothers have some big shoes to fill...enter Richard Patrick, founder and frontman of Filter, who first hit it big in 1995 with the semi-metal/industrial "Hey Man Nice Shot." Initially written off by some as a second rate Nine Inch Nails (which Patrick was once the lead live guitarist of) Filter proved to be more than a run-of-the-mill, mid-90s one-hit-wonder. Their 1999 hit "Take a Picture" proved to be one of the most memorable singles of the decade, proving Filter to have real staying power.

Robert (bass) and Dean (guitar) DeLeo hooking up with Patrick, all veterans of the 90s grunge and post-grunge era seems like a logical fit. But to be honest, often times super-groups are disappointing (Audioslave anyone?). Fortunately, the fruits of this Stone Temple Pilots/Filter combination are mostly impressive. The DeLeo brothers, Patrick, as well as drummer Ray Luzier (The David Lee Roth band) along with producer Bob Ezrin have made an impressive debut.

When you put 90's alternative-rock heavyweights Robert & Dean DeLeo (of Stone Temple Pilots) together with an instantly recognizable voice from a charismatic frontman in Richard Patrick (of Filter), obviously you will yield interesting results. Even if Army Of Anyone's debut (as produced by Bob Ezrin) treads familiar territory, one cannot deny it's power and instant likeability. For those mourning the long-gone glory days of Stone Temple Pilots and Filter, Army Of Anyone offers a glimmer of hope.

Sounds Like: Exactly what you had expected.

The Good:

- Who doesn't like the DeLeo brothers? These guys are just awesome and always turn out awesome melodies and hooks.

- Patrick's voice hasn't weakened with age, and the songwriting has only improved.

- With the first listen, you'll know if you like it or not.

The Bad:

- It sounds too much at times as if Richard Patrick singing over leftover Stone Temple Pilots material.

Hits: "It Doesn't Seem To Matter," "Disappear," "Goodbye," "Ain't Enough," "Leave It" and "A Better Place" -- which serves as the genesis of the band -- all perfectly fuse the Filter and STP sounds together. "Father Figure," however, sounds like another beast (and serves as my personal favorite).

Misses: "Non-Stop" is just annoying.

Future: Radio will love Army Of Anyone, and so will just about anyone who followed these guys in the previous decade. It's just a hard album not to like.

Personally: Army Of Anyone don't "do it for me" like Velvet Revolver and (especially) Audioslave do, but their debut is an excellent start and something everyone should look into.

Best Listened To When: You yearn for something that sounds like Stone Temple Pilots, but isn't just a rip-off -- like so many bands these days.

If you're considering this album, you're either an STP fan or a Filter fan looking for those sounds you miss. Good news STP fans: all the classic guitar/bass interplay and chord changes are there from the DeLeos--this could easily have been an STP or even Talk Show album.

It takes some getting used to, hearing Patrick's voice instead of Weiland, but that doesn't last long. He sounds great; he sounds, like... well, him.

Filter fans seeking that industrial, mechanized sound might be disappointed but perhaps not, since Filter was moving in a more melodic, arragned direction anyway.

There are some absolutely killer songs here. The production is fantastic (not as dirty as Brendan O'Brien's). The drummer absolutely smokes. This CD is worth it for the first five songs alone.

So if, like me, you missed the guitar/bass heroics of the DeLeo brothers, this is your prayer answered.

Out of the three "supergroups" of late, this is easily the best.

Audioslave: totally disappointing

Velvet Revolver: 1/3 of that record is good

Army of Anyone: winnah!

Phew. It's nice to hear some inventive guitar playing again.

I could tell something very good was happening here upon my first listen but it took me listening to this CD 5 times over a 3 week period to begin to appreciate it fully. I didn't care for Velvet Relvover. I found them to sound like rehashed STP and GNR. This on the other hand is quite different. The arrangements are complex with new sounds and exceptional lyrics. All these men sound as if they've grown as better musicians. I just find this CD an amazing result of what truly talented, experienced musicians can do when they apply themselves to raise the bar for themselves. I can just hear the effort of this band conciously pushing themselves to perform at a higher level than they've done before. Intricate, complex and attention to detail shows and I for one appreciate that beyond words. The drum work on the last half of Goodbye is simply amazing. Neil peart level amazing. The complexity of the songs insure years of enjoyment but may require more initial listening for full appreciation. This is not just a band of popular names out to score a few million on a quick ride of reputations. These fellows have really laid down some quality music. This one is a very serious keeper.
