Hard to believe it's been close to 10 years since we've heard of Stone
Temple Pilots... Their debut album
Core and now, their second album, Purple are part of the
In general, Purple has some great rocking songs, comparing to the
likes of other great Alternative 1990s rock bands such as Alice In Chains and
Those rocking songs, such as "Meat Plow," "Vasoline," "Lounge Fly,"
"Still Remains," and "Silvergun Superman" all have the great hard
rock as AIC and PJ. The mood changes with the accoustical ballad "Pretty
Penny" -- a very well-crafted song, and another song worth mentioning is the
great rocker "Unglued." Even the Red Hot Chili Peppers hard rock sound
can be compared as well, to "Army Ants."
The two biggest and well-known songs are the classics "Interstate Love
Song" (great rocker) and "Big Empty" (very laid back, and bluesy).
And lastly, another surprise is the closing song, "Kitchenware And
Candybars," a very laid back song, where it has its rocking moments, and
goes back to the laid back, easy style. And it can be compared more to that
of Pearl Jam.
There is a bonus track, not listed in the track list. At the end of
"Kitchenware And Candybars," there is silence, and the song is similar
to the vocal style of Edwyn Collins. (After researching this particular track
from Amazon.com, it is stated that this lounge-type song was not even recorded
by STP, so maybe it is Edwyn Collins?)
Stone Temple Pilots first two albums achieved the most praise. They did
release other albums, but did not receive as heavy exposure as their first two
albums. Yet, Stone Temple Pilots have already proved they were one of the most
popular Alternative Rock bands, out of the 1990s. Listening to Core
and Purple, it's very easy to see why.
