Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars No. 4 Oct. 16 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If someone who were tyring to get into STP were to pick an album to listen to first, this would be it. No. 4 is an album that takes all of the strengths of prior STP albums and gives it a matured feel. STP aren't looking to the past to make new songs, they are just building on what they've done before, and it shows.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - What Albums Should Be July 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
As with most albums, there are a few tracks you may not like -- and I've found virtually all to be superb and those not so much to my liking were still great efforts. Fabulous production and orchestration can be heard throughout the album. Some complain about songs like "Sour Girl" that got a great amount of airplay and didn't reflect the hard edge they knew as STP. Please, lowering your rating because you didn't care so much for a song doesn't diminish the fantastic effort and care that went into this album. This one convinced me that this band is capable of putting out numerous albums worth buying... in fact, they are one of the few bands whom I own every album and consider all of them listenable. Interestingly enough... I like this one the best. It's diverse. It starts of with some incredibly hard edge, biting vocals, has some funky songs for the next few, following by more acoustic rhythmic ballads, a beautiful ballad (Glide) and then a bit more of the aforementioned for the wrap up. A bargain... get it.

Format:Audio CD
this is a good hard rock CD. with the exception of "sour girl", most of the tracks are similar driving rock guitar with wyland's unique voice over. scott wyland and company have locked on to a formula that works, and this CD is it. it lacks the catchy, driving guitar lines found on purple and the experimentation found on tiny music, but while its not full of incredible tracks, you can put it on and listen to it front to back without skipping over anything, which is more than i can say of some CDs i own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not quite cut it, June 8 2004
By Hilow
Format:Audio CD
I did not think this album is up to par with any of the previous efforts. I personally think STP peaked with "Tiny Music" Maybe I am too hardcore. It seems most of the songs are a continuation of "Barbarella" Scott's solo CD. Barbarella with the exception of "Your roof" sucked. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan and collect everything they put out. This album did not cut it for me. To musically frayed and incohesive. Will I continue to buy STP? Hell yes, because they are prolific and write artistically masterful music. This CD however, is not of that example.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stone Temple Who? May 31 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Stone Temple Pilots is a band that I had more or less forgotten about over the years, though hearing about No. 4 coming out when I'd thought they'd already gone the way of the dodo...
And I was amazed, still am as a matter of fact. Core and Purple, the only other albums they've done that anyone pays attention to, were pretty straight-forward and both pretty much followed themes, where No.4 goes in all sorts of musical directions from track to track. My favorite out of the bunch, and judging from the other things I've heard from them, likely the last one I'll buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Basics Feb. 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
STP returns to its "Core" influences here on No. 4. "Down" opens with a return to old times, reminiscient of Sex Type Thing, Crackerman, and "Meatplow." Songs like "Sex and Violence" and "Glide" invoke the mood of "Pop's Love Suicide" or "Ride the Cliche." "I Got You" fits nicely within its cluster of heavier songs. "Atlanta" is Weiland's best invocation of Jim Morrison since "Sex Type Thing." It's obvious that this album moves from Page/Plant to Lennon/McCartney to MC5 to full out Doors. STP proves once again that it can remain an original band with original material while retaining the flavor of their idols.

STP's No. 4 album, perhaps not as good as Core or Purple but there most diverse one to date. The album just flows from track to track. Its starts out awesome and ends even Better. "Down" a great Hard Rock track, has a great guitar lick and Wieland matches it with a soundgarden/zeppelin touch. Other tracks tracks like No way Out, Sex and Violence, Heaven and Hot Rods, make the album worth more then just the radio hit Sour Girl. The album ends with one of my favorite STP songs "Atlanta," The track has a almost Jim Morrison (the Doors) sound too it, and it is one of the best (vocal wise) Scott Wieland has ever sounded. Check it out....
