Review/Comments/Thoughts:
Originally I gave this album a 5/10 I admit in the beginning I really did not give it the chance it deserves, Heck when STP first hit the scene in the early 90s I could not stand them, I felt that Weiland was trying to sound like a cross between Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam and Gavin Rossadale from Bush. But how wrong I was, I can say that now I am a diehard fan of not only Weiland but of Stone Temple Pilots, so Its only fitting that I give this album a proper review. I changed my original rating from a 5 to a perfect 10. This is one killer album I can see why people perfer just the older album, where I was sold hook line and sinker on their third album (just scroll down) This is a strong album, anybody trying to get into STP needs to start right here, It's a rocker from start to finish. This went from collecting dust to being heavy in my rotation. Favorites include Dead & Bloated, Sex Type Thing, Crackerman, Wicked Garden, No Memory, Sin, Plush

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
This was a good album at the time it was released I honestly didnt think another STP album would be in the works ever. Considering the media surronding Weiland. I am glad to see this album got released. They reverted back to the sound of their first 2 albums but in my opinion fused the elements and lyrical style of the third album into this. Giving it the best of both worlds. Favorites Include Down, Heaven & Hot-Rods, Sour Girl, Sex & Violence

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
Almost 10 years since Shangri-La Dee Dah came out, Their Self Titled Album is a collection of 12 tracks (16 if you got the deluxe version) saying only one thing "STONE TEMPLE PILOTS is Back!" The music itself was written by the DeLeo brothers while Scott Weiland wrote the lyrics and the harmonies. I love a good harmony in my music which might explain the appeal to Weiland as a solo artist and to Stone Temple Pilots. Their first single Between The Lines reminds me soundwise of a mix of their 2nd and 3rd albums with a twist of Beatles-esque to the mix. Its catchy and it's poppy. It was an instant favorite for this fan. The DeLeo brothers had said they had written this song with groups like Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Zombies, and The Animals in mind. Very 60s retro if you ask me, but then Weiland took the song and wrote some killer lyrics and made it sort of a twisted love song. Another one of my favorites from this album Hickory Dichotomy was best described as a Country song in a rock format. It's also very catchy this is the song that I think gets in my head the easiest and stays there. Dare If You Dare another one of my favorites, Remember what I said about Harmonies this song is a classic example of that, I just love the chours. Cinnamon is a light hearted catchy poppy tune, One of the members of STP would even use the word Psychodelic. Me, its defintly a side of STP you don't see. Totally kicking song. Hazy Daze to me is very reminscant of the first album in sound. Lyrically according to Wikipedia, the song is about Weiland's father First Kiss on Mars I love this song, would put it in my top 3 favorites on this album. Looking in Retrospect if you listen to this and to their release from 2001, you can almost tell that the band was not working cohesively as they could have been, Shangri La Dee Dah just seems to reek that the end was near. Its a good album mind you, but then you listen to this album and you can tell the band is in that cohesiveness again, Maybe a bit older and wiser but this album is a great return to form. With the deluxe edition this album comes with 1 bonus track Samba Nova which reminds me of Scott Weiland's solo stuff especially from the 12 Bar Blues sessions. Has a Jazzy feel to it as does the pre-order tune About a Fool which for the record I do not have. The other bonus tracks are live tracks from their Live in Chicago performance, I hope they release that as a DVD down the road that would rule. Anyways, The live tracks are Vasoline from their second album Purple and Between the Lines, and Hickory Dichotomy from this release. A Must have for ALL STP Fans
