Stone Temple Pilots Artist Snapshot:

On the release of their first album in 1992, San Diego's Stone Temple Pilots attracted positive critical and popular attention, balanced with a preponderance of comparisons to Pearl Jam and other concurrent grunge acts. This is understandable considering the similarities on songs like "Plush"--emotive lead singer, powerful rhythm section, big crunchy guitars--but by their second album, which debuted on the Billboard charts at number one, STP had distinguished themselves as a creative unit to be reckoned with. A third album, TINY MUSIC..., further strayed from the grunge formula and garnered some of their best reviews. Sadly, lead singer Scott Weiland's heroin addiction, repeated stints in rehab, and arrests greatly curtailed the group's progress. Yet the 2000s produced several reunions amidst Weiland's duties as frontman of the supergroup Velvet Revolver.

Product Notes

Though lambasted in some quarters as cynical clones of the then-vaunted "Seattle sound" (in particular, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam) STP''s 1993 debut nonetheless found a considerable following for its potent crunch and sly hooks. While some tracks do seem to ape the era''s grunge ethos a bit too slavishly, there''s also a sense that perhaps Weiland and company were merely sharing some of the same influences as their contemporaries--and on standouts like the riff-savvy "Sex Type Thing" and the moody acoustics of "Creep", accomplishing it with a bit more ambitious range. Indeed, the radio anthem "Crush" belies a devotion to songcraft disdained by many of their peers, one that served as an effective bridge between the stadium rock of the ''70s and ''80s and the more introspective alt-rock just then coming into vogue--even if the album''s triple-platinum sales showed just how ironic and misplaced the "alternative" label could ultimately be. --Jerry McCulley
