Release Date: 1992 | Tracklist

Review Summary: A Dirty Raw... and Generic Grunge Album

Stone Temple Pilots in 1992 debuts their first album

Needless to say, they received a lot of criticism for borrowing Sound from Seattle bands

The Riffs of this album are not outstanding and have few solos, don't expect Melody in this Sound, it's Crude Grunge

Opens with "Dead & Bloated" which is already a Good Track, Heavy "Sex Type Thing", "Wicked Garden" a great track

"No Memory" is a short instrumental, I don't even know why they did it...but oh well

"Wet My Bed" is weird and it's just spoken lines, nothing interesting.

"Sin" "Naked Sunday" "Piece of Pie" are not Memorable Tracks and Easily Fell Bygone.

"Creep" is definitely the best, this one For me was The Ballad of 1992, this year there was no better

"Plush" is the Goodvibes from the Album, "Crackerman" is a Fast and Upbeat Track

"Where The River Goes" is 8 Minutes long, but there's nothing Outstanding here either...

hmm there's nothing wrong with STP, but they've improved a lot with Tempo... and Core is not your Best

Anyway, Half the Album is Good, the Rest is Just the Rest.

3 maybe a 1/2 too low, at the time I thought this was great as somebody who was listening to metal I took to this more than PJ or Nirvana to be honest



They borrowed from the Seattle sound but those bands borrowed from the 60's and 70's sound too so we can just assume that any band is taking influences from other bands



they also put on a great show back in the day as well. I saw them at Summerfest in 94 I think and they slammed
