This fine band's powerful music has been often overshadowed by singer Scott Weiland's well-documented drug and legal troubles. Not to mention that STP's 1992 debut, Core, was dismissed by critics as "Seattle lite." Nonetheless, STP has managed to make four noteworthy albums; No. 4 is not groundbreaking, but the quartet's aggressive, dynamic hard rock is emotion-packed and timeless. Not as hit-heavy as its predecessors, No. 4 is nevertheless strong and diverse. On the gentler side, there's the lilting '60s-influenced "I Got You" and "Atlanta", which is almost Doors-like in its dreamy mood. Heavier fare includes the mid-tempo heavy riffing opener "Down" and the winning but not-so-subtly titled "Sex and Violence", which matches an aggressive, linear feel with a cool punk vibe. At 42 minutes, the only thing wrong with No. 4 is that there's not enough of it. --Katherine Turman

This album encompasses incredibly hard hitting heaving songs (the monstrous "Down" and the heavy hitter "Heaven And Hotrods"). Rock with a psychedelic haze to it ("Pruno" and the spacy "No Way Out"). Beatlesque pop-rock (The incredibly catchy "Church On Sunday"). Quieter yet still intense moments (The heartbreak of "Sour Girl", and "I Got You"). Punky songs ("Sex And Violence" and "MC5"). And what I think to be two of the STP's best, (the unbelievably psychedelic "Glide" which will hook you and take you along for the ride. And "Atlanta", which is to the STP what "The End" was to the Doors).
There is not one bad song on the album at all, it's an album that suffers from only one fault however. It's just too damn short! At the cover might suggest, this album is the STP's shining star. And the great thing about it, is because of how diverse it is, you will for sure be listening to it again, and again.
