Product Description

Stone Temple Pilots ~ No.4


This fine band's powerful music has been often overshadowed by singer Scott Weiland's well-documented drug and legal troubles. Not to mention that STP's 1992 debut, Core, was dismissed by critics as "Seattle lite." Nonetheless, STP has managed to make four noteworthy albums; No. 4 is not groundbreaking, but the quartet's aggressive, dynamic hard rock is emotion-packed and timeless. Not as hit-heavy as its predecessors, No. 4 is nevertheless strong and diverse. On the gentler side, there's the lilting '60s-influenced "I Got You" and "Atlanta", which is almost Doors-like in its dreamy mood. Heavier fare includes the mid-tempo heavy riffing opener "Down" and the winning but not-so-subtly titled "Sex and Violence", which matches an aggressive, linear feel with a cool punk vibe. At 42 minutes, the only thing wrong with No. 4 is that there's not enough of it. --Katherine Turman

Why am i always so dissapointed with STP's albums? Is it because they're never as good as what the single indicates? After the dissapointment of No.4 i have come to the conclusion that STP are essentially a singles band. They just don't seem to have it in them to release a consistently great album. The following album Shangri la dee da follows the same trend. "Sour girl" is the deceivingly great single this time. Talk about great pop melodies, the beatles would be proud of that one. Ofcourse the fans of old will relish in songs like "down" and "no way out", which aren't bad but just seem like desperate attempts to keep thier old grunge/hard rock image. Other standouts are "sex and violence", "church on tuesday" and "Atlanta". The rest is mostly filler ranging from okay to awful. I think STP could release a very great "Best of" album.

No. 4 is the Stone Temple Pilots most diverse album to date and ends up being a bit of a mixed bag, much like all thier albums. No. 4 has elements from all of thier 3 previous albums, so if you're expecting a full on hard rock album from beginning to end like Core you will be sorely dissapointed. Besides, i feel the harder tracks on No. 4 such as "Down", "No way out" and "Heaven & Hotrods" are forced and uninspired filler solely put on the album to reinforce thier hard rock/grunge image. It's the quieter moments on No. 4 which standout. Thier is nothing wrong with a good pop rock song like "sour girl" or a slow dreamy ballad like "Atlanta", which STP seems to have a knack for. "Sex & Violence" and "MC5" are also good catchy pumpin rockers that keep the energy up. The rest of the songs have some good ideas but don't seem fully sought out. Overall the album is a little rushed. I beleive STP will be remembered as a great singles band of the 90s rather than a band that released consistent classic albums.

If someone who were tyring to get into STP were to pick an album to listen to first, this would be it. No. 4 is an album that takes all of the strengths of prior STP albums and gives it a matured feel. STP aren't looking to the past to make new songs, they are just building on what they've done before, and it shows.
This album encompasses incredibly hard hitting heaving songs (the monstrous "Down" and the heavy hitter "Heaven And Hotrods"). Rock with a psychedelic haze to it ("Pruno" and the spacy "No Way Out"). Beatlesque pop-rock (The incredibly catchy "Church On Sunday"). Quieter yet still intense moments (The heartbreak of "Sour Girl", and "I Got You"). Punky songs ("Sex And Violence" and "MC5"). And what I think to be two of the STP's best, (the unbelievably psychedelic "Glide" which will hook you and take you along for the ride. And "Atlanta", which is to the STP what "The End" was to the Doors).
There is not one bad song on the album at all, it's an album that suffers from only one fault however. It's just too damn short! At the cover might suggest, this album is the STP's shining star. And the great thing about it, is because of how diverse it is, you will for sure be listening to it again, and again.

As with most albums, there are a few tracks you may not like -- and I've found virtually all to be superb and those not so much to my liking were still great efforts. Fabulous production and orchestration can be heard throughout the album. Some complain about songs like "Sour Girl" that got a great amount of airplay and didn't reflect the hard edge they knew as STP. Please, lowering your rating because you didn't care so much for a song doesn't diminish the fantastic effort and care that went into this album. This one convinced me that this band is capable of putting out numerous albums worth buying... in fact, they are one of the few bands whom I own every album and consider all of them listenable. Interestingly enough... I like this one the best. It's diverse. It starts of with some incredibly hard edge, biting vocals, has some funky songs for the next few, following by more acoustic rhythmic ballads, a beautiful ballad (Glide) and then a bit more of the aforementioned for the wrap up. A bargain... get it.

No. 4 solidifies STP's legacy of the 90's. A spectacular album, made more so by its simplicity and time of production. STP came full circle with No. 4, utilizing all aspects of their talents to create a moody, yet raw opus. "Down" sets the stage with its raucous and powerful tune, and its drive is carried on throughout the next three songs--through "Church on Tuesday," with even more clever guitar riffs and undertones. The fifth song, "Sour Girl," was probably the song that sold the album to me (as if any new STP album wouldn't). The song's direction and melodic flow just hit the spot. If there was ever any doubt about their ability to wander off the beaten path and throw the listener off guard, there shouldn't be now. The change of pace from the previous four songs and the genuine quality of the song make its position on the album essential (and perfect). After listening to the album several times, however, the eighth song, "Glide," slowly became my favorite tune on the album. Its steady beat and dominating chorus give the album its second wind, so to speak. The final three songs ("I Got You," "MC5," and "Atlanta") ensure the album doesn't fade away with fillers. Each one in its own right envokes comparisons to songs of the latter '60s. "I Got You" is very similar to "Sour Girl" in its impact to the listener, and the erratic drumming by Kretz is right on in "MC5." "Atlanta," with its striking similarity to "My Favorite Things" from Mary Poppins (shocking, isn't it?) ends it in grande style and is a great ballad. For STP fans (and music fans in general), the Weiland/Deleo combination(s) is heard in full force in No. 4 and thus solidifies STP as one of the best bands of the '90s (not to mention our generation).
