    Stone Temple Pilots is one of the best rock bands that not many people have heard of, great album, great music. Dean DeLeo rocks those guitar solos like not a lot of rock guitarists can these days, the vocals perfectly complement the rocking instruments and the songs just come off as unique and well made. This band reminds me heavily of Aerosmith, except newer. If you like good music, or aren't deaf, chances are you'll like this album. Expand

  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.
