Product Description

Product Description

Certified double platinum by the RIAA 5/98

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

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).

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).Read more ›

Tiny Music is... well... different from Core and Purple. It's a complete stylistic departure from the previous two albums, as the band experimented with different music styles that made STP almost unrecognizable when this album hit stores in the spring of 1996. Grunge was dead, though the nail had yet to be polunged in for many Nirvana imitators were around at this time, so STP, being the smart band they were, went in an alternate direction than releasing a bland imitation of Purple. They took the different styles they hinted at in Purple and ran with them.
The band used more of a groovy sound in songs like Press Play, And So I Know, and Art School Girl, some of their catchiest songs ever. Adhesive could be seen as an 'epic' of sorts, for Scott Weiland laments about success and the song is very low-key, with some hints of jazz since they brought in a trumpet player for this song. The band still rocks on many of the songs, but it sounds a lot more confined and a lot more raw than the songs on the two previous albums, and Weiland's vocals are more scratchy on this album as opposed to the strong vocals he used on Core and Purple. Though his addictions were catching up to him.
This album most likely will bewilder fans of the group's heavier sound portrayed on the rest of their albums, but Tiny Music is a very artistic album with many highs, and proved that STP was capable of working w/ many styles of music and succeeding.

I simply could not get into this album. I completely loved STP's first 2 albums, and I have enjoyed No. 4 and somewhat enjoyed shangra la de da. In comparison to all the other releases, this cd seemed like a STP record put on fast forward, with the ending result of sounding like The Chipmunks do Rock n' Roll. Although very catchy and occasionally fun to listen to, I found it dreadfully shallow and odd. This isn't the quirky oddness or wit that can be found enjoyable in bands like The Promise Ring or The Dismemberment Plan, this album left me feeling empty and annoyed.

Many people consider this STP's true triumph, throwing out their grunge roots and forming a polished album of innovative pop tunes, but for me this was a giant step...well I can't say backwards, but let's say in the "stupid" direction. Scott Weiland has one of the greatest voices of the 90's and if not the best range, but on this album it seems wasted. When I first heard the big single "Big Bang Baby" I seriously could not believe this was STP, this song like many of the others sounds as if Weiland was huffing helium before recording.

To sum it all up, if you are looking for a follow up to Purple or Core or trying to trace the route back from No.4 I'd recommend skipping Tiny Music, to me it was the one pot-hole in the amazing road of STP's career. With 4 albums with broad musical stylings that all leave you gasping for more, this is the album that leaves you wishing they would shut up.
