STP kick ass. Period. Their singles were usually their best stuff, and they are all here! As a result if you heard a song or two on the radio and they intrested you start here first. with this CD you get all of the band's strengths and none of the filler that is on the albums. Here you can see the reasons why critics labeled them Pearl Jam, Nirvana, etc, etc rip offs and decide for yourself if they kick as much ass as I say they do or not. after listening to this go onto their albums and find the buried treasure that surely awaits an open mind.
To pull just one song off of this album: Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart, is STP at their pop best. It bursts into your speakers with maniac energy and does not stop it only gets better everytime I hear it.
Not much of a review I know. But DON'T buy the bad press about these guys, what band doesn't rip off another older one to a degree? As for Weiland's drug problems I think Jimi Hendrix had a bit of a problem with that. Does that make either of them passable in their music talents? No, I don't think so. One more thing for all those indie/alternative people who hate anything because it is popular or "mainstream" screw off this band kicks ass and it is huge because people like stuff that is good.
Give 'em a listen and you should see.
Everyone in this band did a great job with making some amazing music, and yes I know that Scott Weiland is with Velvet Revolver now, and they are a great band too. I guess STP might have still been together today if Weiland didn't have all the drug problems, but unfortunately that's just the way it went. This is actually my only Stone Temple Pilots album, and it was definetely worth the money.
