Thank goodness this LP was re-issued. I've probably played it 50 times since I got it, as I'd not sat down to listen to it for many a moon. A masterpiece, pure & simple.

On PURPLE, we see Weiland and Co. grabbing not for hardhitting riffs so much as credibility with the critics. They had been roasted with their debut CORE because of the heavy sludge attack of that record. Stone Temple Pilots were accused of being rather dull copy-cat `artists', learning from Pearl Jam and Nirvana their entire bag of tricks and then replicating it with rather boring results. CORE's main problem, of course, is it gets very bogged down in the full assault of that heavy grunge sound, and Stone Temple Pilots don't rely on much else to carry the record through.

The critics this time were fairly right. With the exception of the four singles (Wicked Garden, Sex Type Thing, Creep, and Plush), which stand as some of the very best songs of the early 1990s and as important as anything Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and the other grungies were doing at the time. These tracks were tempered with melodicism, heavy-hitting music, and a great acoustic sound which rivals even Alice in Chains (who I believe has the best acoustic sound of any of the grunge heavy weights).

PURPLE is miles ahead of their debut. While they still retain the trademark sludge of grunge, they temper it greatly and vary things up enough to make their sound much more interesting, and in the process give the other grunge bands a run for their money.

Of course, recrafting your sound does not make the new record any better than the old one unless you have songs to go along with it (Sixteen Stone vs. Razorblade Suitcase). This is where PURPLE shines. As far as I'm concerned this record plays like a greatest hits record, or a compilation of essential early 1990s tracks. Without exception, every song on here is as good as the singles I cited from CORE.

This is the best album I have ever listened to. It's not often that I find a CD where every single track is GREAT (not just good)...but this is it! This CD is the best that Scott and crew has to offer. It has the artsy elements of "Tiny Music..." but still maintains the power rock of "Core". I would reccomend this CD to anyone and everyone, especially fans of STP.

This is the second album for the trippy 90's hard rock group. While STP was unfairly lumped in with the grunge-rockers of the era, STP was in reality a hard rock band, sounding straight out of say, 1975. All that with some grunge influnces, of course. This album includes some of the band's biggest hits, like 'Interstate Love Song', 'Big Empty', and 'Vasoline'. While not being as hard-drivingly heavy as the previous album, the band have not gone light. I love all of the songs on here. Scott's voice, I feel has matured a little bit, espescially on tracks like 'Big Empty', which gives a new meaning to the term 'power ballad'. Buy this album, it's a tried and true classic.

Purple was the first time I had heard of Stone Temple Pilots, and then I listened to the rest, becoming an instant fan. What this album does is abandon the Core sound and really gets into that grunge mode, but they do it gracefully, and looking back, everyone knows they succeeded. This did not intend to compare with what Nirvana was doing, producing some good catchy tunes like Meatplow, Vasoline, Big Empty, and of course, Interstate Love Song. It belongs in every music fan's CD collection. Nuff said.

In retrospect, 'Purple' is the most unique album to come out of the grunge period. It has style, hard rocking riffs, great melodies, sing-a-long lyrics, and on top of that a very diverse/ecclectic collection of well recorded, wonderfully crafted songs.
The significance of this album is that it shows a band who is no longer just going through the motions, but is actually creating and evolving into true 'songwriters and arraingers'. Each song has it's own character and feel which is almost absent from all other 'Grunge' releases of it's time. They are all unique and diverse, but they don't lose their edge and wit.
The prominent melodic bass lines (Mr DeLeo is very underrated) and unique chord structures (So is the other Mr. DeLeo) are what brings life to these recordings.
STP have always delivered with each album they've released. They are great songwriters, and I feel that this album is the perfect summation of all of their works. Rock, pop/rock, accoustic, funky/groovy, psychadelic... It's all here.
One of the top 10 albums of the 90's!!
All the best, -AndyMan-

I love the video for "Vasoline", its so weird and cool! The song is just as cool. Interstate Love Song is another stand-out.
