Product Description

Amazon.ca

Grunge was the Stone Temple Pilots' stock-in-trade on their first two albums, but Tiny Music takes the group beyond such stylistic limitations. There's still plenty of grinding, metallic alt-rock here, thanks to "Pop's Love Suicide," "Big Bang Baby," and "Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart." "Lady Picture Show" is a bracing blast of Beatlesesque pop, however, while "And So I Know" finds Weiland crooning over, of all things, cocktail jazz. The album's dozen tracks find the troubled singer musing (rather creepily) about the price of fame on "Adhesive" ("Sell more records if I'm dead... Hope it's sooner / Hope it's near corporate records' fiscal year"), and not apologizing for his bad behavior ("Tumble in the Rough" asserts, "I'm looking for a new stimulation"; bet you are, Scott). But they're rock stars, not role models, and Tiny Music is STP's edgiest, most accomplished effort. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't even.... Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
bother reading the one star reviews written by closed minded morons who like bands that put out the same garbage over and over and over again. When i see people talking badly about tiny music because "it's no core or purple, those were good STP albums" it really angers me. If STP had put out 5 albums that all sounded like core and purple, then people would be writing reviews saying "it sounds just like all of their other albums."
Don't get me wrong, I love core and purple, but i like them equally as much as tiny music, no.4, and shagri-la dee da. Now down to the actual Tiny Music review.
This is a fantastic, diverse album, that has some of my favorite STP songs ever. Songs like "Tripping on a whole in a paper heart", "Adhesive", and "Tumble in the rough" are amazing STP songs and Weilands singing on tripping sends chills down my back just because of the passion you can hear him putting out. This CD is, in a whole, softer then core, purple, and No.4, in general, but that doesn't mean that it isn't still a fantastic album. When i put it on, i just can't stop it, and pretty much every time i listen to it, i listen to it all the way through.
Now do the right thing and go out and buy this CD, you won't regret it (unless you want to hear the same cds redone over and over and over again).

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly underestimated album June 14 2004
By Devan
Format:Audio CD
Cruising around the internet, I've seen numerous reviews dismissing Tiny Music because it sounded "too soft", but when I gave it an honest listen, I didn't find anything remotely wrong with it. Aside from Big Bang Baby and Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart, this CD has a good balance of hard-rockin' tracks(Tumble in the Rough...'nuff said) and soft ballads(And So I Know). It also shows that the band had a really great time doing this, possibly making this the brightest album they've ever done. This is something to listen to while you're on a vacation to the beach or just sucking in the atmosphere of a sunny day at the pool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album - Classic Songs May 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
The title of the review says enough, in and of itself. Just as good, if not better than their first two. STP is definitely exploring new ground and expanding as a musical force. Unfortunately, this album is terribly underrated. By the way, I read the Amazon review.... What the hell is grunge, anyway? It's a term invented by the media, NOT a viable genre. Ugh.. As someone who grew up listening to so-called "grunge" music, which is really a blanket term for any kind of new rock that came out in the early ninties, I just had to get that out of my system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine release from STP May 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
STP was one of the most important grunge metal bands of the early 1990's. They mixed Led Zeppelin style hard rock with the alternative acts of the era. Although creating a quite bizarre musical landscape for the 90's, they could play high-quality rock n roll. And on this one, they do the same. Big Bang Baby, one of the album's standout tracks, was a Top 40 hit for the band in 1996. Essential for a 90's rock fan or even a metalhead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated classic Feb. 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Great album which sometimes gets an undeserved bad rap. This proved that STP was one of the most musically diverse bands the 90's had to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Beast Feb. 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
STP here moves entirely toward a more Beatles-esque phase and away from the Zeppelin-influenced domination. The first evidence of this change is in the bass's and guitar's tonal qualities. Dean's distortion is decidedly rounder and fuller, as if someone increased the mids. Robert's bass is a little lower in the mix, more subdued even in the heavier songs. "Seven Caged Tigers" opens with a reminiscience of earlier days but travails off into new territory. It should be noted that not one song on this album is a bad song; they're all just different. "And So I Know" is a beautiful song as is "Adhesive;" they just evoke Iggy Pop more than they evoke Robert Plant or Jim Morrison. The staunch STP guitarist fan will have an interesting time playing the more esoteric songs here as they're quite different from the straightforward rockers.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of STP best!!! Dec 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Why does everyone say this sounds nothing like the old stuff and COMPLAIN about it?? That is the one thing I LOVED about this cd...it is so different than the first 2 they released...Different but GOOD!!! Not a bad song in the mix...highlights are "Adhesive"..."Tumble In The Rough"..."Lady Picture Show"...and the rest are just as good. STP never got the recognition they deserved from the critics...Too bad they are through...that will be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny Music--Big Leap Sept. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Stone Tempe Pilots are in the zone with their third album. They continue to improve (and adjust) their sound and take the listener to a whole new level of listening experience--a feat that is matched by only a handful of bands in recent history. Instead of falling in the rut of playing what worked in the past just to keep the audience base intact, STP ventured out into new territory while dealing with difficult personal issues. Their melodic, flowing undertones set them apart from any competition they faced in the early to mid '90s (including Pearl Jam--I'm a big fan, too, but STP comes out leaps and bounds over the Seattle band in the end--beginning with "Purple" and continuing with this album). If you enjoyed "Purple," you will be more than satisfied with this CD. There were moments of foreshadow in "Purple" that let you know where the group was heading in terms of style ("Interstate Love Song" and "Vasoline" are two songs that could have easily been placed on "Tiny Music.") The most obvious addition to STPs repetoire in "Tiny Music" were the two outstanding instrumentals--"Press Play" and "Daisy." As a huge Paul McCartney fan, "Daisy" reminded me of the feel of McCartney's first album, "McCartney." Needless to say, I was more than impressed with that. "Press Play" sets the stage for the rest of the album and is quite pleasing to the ear (cheesy, but true). "Pop's Love Suicide" is blunt, sleek, and powerful all at the same time, and "Tumble in the Rough" is a high-charged rock song penned by Weiland (a rare musical composition credited to the singer).
