It's certainly a very good album to rock to, but it pales in comparison to the STP of the future. Purple was already several times more melodic than Core. Tiny Music expanded upon that with new vocals and several directions. No.4 combined Core and Purple with Tiny Music, and pumped out some nice power-ballads. Shangri-La was simply a beautiful artistic album. Core seems like a generic rocker compared to those.
Standouts here are Creep (the only different sounding song on the album, aside from the pointless "Wet My Bed" and "No Memory.") and Plush (a classic). The rest of the album is just a collection of good/decent rock songs, that could be best described as filler. As I said, not a bad album, but a good rock album and a good start. But it has nothing on the STP that would develop over the rest of the decade.
This album is full of most of the Stone Temple Pilots biggest hits. The album starts off with the classic 'Dead & Bloated' which is the perfect track to open with. Then its right into the absolutly killer 'Sex Type Thing' which is just classic. 'Whicked Garden' Is another killer classic . 'No Memory' is a not so good instrumental. 'Sin' is a great hard rock song. 'Naked Sunday' is different but its still pretty good for a almost funk song. 'Creep' is just a great acoustic song that still played on the radio today. 'Piece Of Pie' is one of the best songs on the album its hard, heavy and fast. 'Plush' is probly the reason your looking at this album its a pure classic. 'Wet My Bed' sucks there is no nice way to put it. 'Crackerman' is another STP classic that is still all over ther radio. 'Where The River Goes' is a perfect song that goes in so many differnt directions, and then ends wear it began.
If you love rock then you will love this album, like I said before this is one of the very best albums I have ever heard, its easily in the top twenty albums of all time.
If you like grunge, this is the way to go.
Every song exudes earth-shattering, ear-breaking pounding, a staple for grunge afficianados. It doesn't succumb to today's basest, loser bands' standards of jumbling together asinine lyrics and thinking with unrefined instruments abused to the highest setting. Though Weiland's lyrics are more-often-than-not nonsensical (like including clashing statements in one sentence), and sometimes a hard dilemma to figure out what mystery he's pertaining to, enough trickles through to appreciate the effort that went into the seemingly retarded lyrics. The lyrics may as well be considered poetry, since in poetry, the often perverse authors also resort to including enigmatic, difficult-to-understand, clashing ideas, which are supposed to symbolize some self-righteous meaning.Read more ›
