Shangri-La Dee Da may not be STP's most commercial outing, but the disc's 13 tracks comprise a satisfying aural journey despite its lack of quick-fix hits along the lines of "Sex Type Thing" and "Wicked Garden." From the dark, grinding rhythms and obfuscated vocals of "Dumb Love" to the lovely "Wonderful" to the buoyant power pop of "Days of the Week" to the edgy and disturbing "Coma," myriad facets of the lineup's musical temperament are explored. "Bi-Polar Bear" hints at STP's humor, though Shangri-La is by no means lightweight; singer Scott Weiland's passionate and personal lyrics--especially on a touching ode to his infant son, "A Song for Sleeping"--are affecting and apt. The fifth outing from this California crew who've survived grunge and thrived in its aftermath is masterful and mature effort from a band who've spied some light at the end of their tunnel. --Katherine Turman

Stone Temple Pilot's Core was one of the first cds I ever bought, and has remained a favorite of mine for more than ten years now, although I would say without question their masterpiece is Purple, one of the best albums of the '90s. Of their five albums, Tiny Music... is my least favorite, and No. 4 is all right, but inconsistent. When Shangri-La Dee Da was announced, I was excited but apprehensive... and upon first listen, I was tremendously disappointed. I remember going through the entire cd and thinking, "Where is the hit song off this album?" None of the songs seemed all that memorable, and I sort of wrote the cd off.
A few months later, I decided to give it another spin, and it grew on me... and I listened to it again. And again. Three times through on the way to the Jersey shore. I think the problem is that this album is VERY different for STP, even for a band whose sound has changed on every one of their albums. It draws on all their previous albums, sure, but the blend of these sounds creates a new one that's very different, and sort of hard to classify. It sounds... heavily produced, I guess you could say. Layered vocals, strings and pianos in the background... this is a far cry from the hard-rockers of Core. Yet the spirit is still there from the start, in Dumb Love. This really is an album with a breakout track, but its sort of because, well... all the songs are good. There are no bad tracks here, but no 5-star tracks as well... although I do really like Too-Cool Queenie, which I think should've been the first single. I have read that its about Courtney Love... if so, bravo, STP.
Personally I think real STP fans, fans that have grown up with this band and appreciate the way their sound changes, can't help but give this album a good review.

I got this one at the end of 2001, having put it off for a while. I still had a good taste in my mouth from '4' and didn't want to spoil it (got burned a little on 'Tiny Music'). On first listen, I was a little disappointed, and put it to the side for a few months. In the summer of 2002 I got it out and gave it one more listen...and wow! I thought it was terrific! I couldn't understand how I had missed it the first time around, the sonic sound, the watery lyrics/melodies, the grinding vocals that propel this album to be one of my favorites by the band. This was something that was reminescent of 'Core' for the way the band touches their rock roots and sticks to them. The lyrics are far more mature than that album though, and you can hear the 30-somethings problems that the members have been working out in the songs 'hello its late' 'black again' and 'transmissions from a lonely room'. The rest of it is an experience that is worth the price; the playful slapping of 'too cool queenie' and the angst driven 'hollywood b---'. Every song on this album is terrific, and should be a testament to one of the bands who has stuck it out through some really tough times (but stay out of jail!).
Bottom line: the third best STP album of all time (behind Core and 4) and a far better buy than the recent rehash, Thank You.

STP proves, on this album, that they have outlasted every grunge band, every drug addiction, every jail sentence, and every setback and the lyrics on most of these songs show that. Songs like "Bi-Polar Bear," "Wonderful," and "A Song for Sleeping" are the most introspective, mature songs the band has written. They mesh well with the heavier songs such as "Dumb Love," "Coma," and "Regeneration." "Too Cool Queenie" reminds the listener of "Tiny Music" and "Long Way Home" evokes "Where the River Goes." The band blends light and shade masterfully in this opus. The band has finally separated itself from the Tiny Music mixing methods and returned to big, heavy sounds. The guitar is up front in the mix, the bass is clearly audible and punchy, and the drums clear and loud. The lighter songs lose none of the impact because they're mixed the same way. The acoustic guitars are up front in the mix so they're not drowned out by the vocals or drums. STP's tremendous musicianship matches the superb mixing and mastering on this work.

If you didn't like it after the first spin my ass. The first time i heard this i didnt really think anything big of it. After a few more times it just started to grow on me. It is an album with a whole different style of stp music which is what makes it so good to me. If band just keeps trying to repeat its success by making the same music over and over again it would just get boring and no one would want to hear them anymore. This is the type of cd that i can just listen to over and over again and not get sick of it. With songs like "dumb love", "days of the week", and "coma" stp was just doing their usual music style. It's songs like "bi-polar bear", "too cool queenie", "wonderful", "black again", and "a song for sleeping" that make me want to keep listening to this cd over and over. On the song "black again" you can hear how Scott uses a different vocal styling that is just unbelievably great. In the song "a song for sleeping" you hear how they used electronic percussion instead of regular drums and it turns out to be one of my favorite stp songs. This is another song where scott uses a different vocal style that is beautiful. Two other songs that caught my ear were "wonderful" and "bi-polar bear" mainly because they are great acoustic songs. I know they have had acoustic songs in the past but nothing like these two. "too cool queenie" is a great song because it has a sort of different sound for the guitar that makes it sound different but good and the lyrics of this song also caught my attention because it tells a couple stories. If these guys were in different bands their is no way any of them would be as good as stp. A lot of it has to do with the way Scott sings.Read more ›
