Let me start things of with the obvious: I'm a fan. Now you can choose to call me biased -I am by the way we all are and anyone who pretends to be neutral is a flat out liar- and not read my review.
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.

I was originally going to buy Purple instead of this CD, mostly becuase I heard Interstate Love Song a few times and it kind of got me into liking STP. I'm glad I got this one though, because it has some great songs from Core, especially Plush. Anyway, I'll go through the songs and what I think about them.
1.) Vasoline- I was actually expecting this song to be a little bit better than I consider it to be, since it's supposed one of the best songs from Purple, the guitar riffs during the verses are pretty repetitive, other than that it's okay though.
2.) Down- This one has a great intro and some cool drum sounds, overall a good song
3.) Wicked Garden- AMAZING GUITAR RIFFS, and great singing and drumming too. Awesome song.
4.) Big Empty- A nice song to listen to for just relaxing, great chorus too.
5.) Plush- This is a really good track. Everything, the guitar, bass, drums and singing are all great. It's put together really well too.
6.) Big Bang Baby- Sort of sounds like a rock cover of some 70's disco song, it's pretty good though.
7.) Creep- Really good chorus, I guess my only complaint is that it kind of drags on a bit with some parts. A good mixture of acoustic and electric guitars though.
8.) Lady Picture Show- "She doesn't know her name, she doesn't know her face," the chorus on this one sounds kind of funny and it's pretty catchy. Good song overall and actually my favorite guitar solo on the CD.
9.) Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart- A good kind of fast paced rock song, and Weiland does some cool vocal manipulation too.
10.) Interstate Love Song- Probably the best guitar hooks that I've ever heard in my life. Excellent drumming also.

By Mike on June 27 2004

The reason that I first bought Thank You is because I had heard "All in the Suit That You Wear" on the radio. I had never been a fan of Stone Temple Pilots before and I was not familiar with any of their songs. I knew that Core had sold over 8 million copies and thought this would be a good place to start. STP made many good songs over their career and they are all included here. "Vasoline" is short but great and "Plush" is the song that put them in the spotlight (and fortunately this includes the unedited version). "Interstate Love Song" is possibly the best single released by any band formed in the 90's and shows how amazing Weiland is (Don't forget "Sex Type Thing" and "Down"). After this I bought each of the rest of their albums over a span of four months and found that, apart from the songs that were included on Thank You, it was all weak material. Stone Temple Pilots is best described as a singles band, which is what makes Thank You so great. The album is not perfect, however. "All in the Suit that You Wear" is a good song but doesn't rank in their top five of all time. Songs like "Days of the Week" are terrible and have no place on a disc that also has "Big Empty" on it. An acoustic "Plush" seems unneccessary to all but acoustic fans and diehards.

Weiland is an amazing vocalist and songwriter and has been an easy target for critics who call him a rip-off of Eddie from Pearl Jam or make fun of him for his drug problems. It is terrible that they do this for drug addiction is a disease and all those stupid people who ask him to his face pointless and (in some cases) hypocritical questions like "What is it like to ride in the back of a policecar?" should beat themselves, because Weiland is now refusing to speak to the media.
