Scott Weiland's 12 Bar Blues is a very under-appreciated album. Stone Temple Pilots is, undoubtedly, a great band and has put out five of the best albums in rock. 12 Bar Blues is far different from anything that STP released. If you are a fan of Stone Temple Pilots, this album may not appeal to you, because it doesn't sound a lot like STP. It's not a straight-ahead rock album, like Core, but a much more eclectic, diverse collection of songs. Overall, the album is more electronic than STP, with more effects, etc. Unlike STP, this isn't really a guitar and riff driven album. Each song sounds unique and different, but the album still manages to flow perfectly. Each song is well crafted, arranged, and well written with a good hook. Out of the 12 songs on this CD, there is no filler. I can't name a standout tune, because really, each song is terrific. To me, the songs read like a diary of a tortured soul, but without sounding whiny or full of self-pity. I strongly recommend this CD, you wont regret it.
