  1. Scott Weiland sounds downright effervescent on the first Stone Temple Pilots disc in nearly a decade. There's nothing new here, just cheap and easy pop-rock mimicry (the Beatles, Petty, Nirvana, Bowie, Aerosmith), siphoned through spry, crunchy grunge riffs.
  2. It's not groundbreaking stuff, but it surpasses all expectations for a group who've spent almost a decade apart.
  3. The 12 tracks blend essentially everything STP ever did well without sounding like a stitched-together version of past hits.
