I love it.



Let’s admit it: the last release with Weiland was a painful, mediocre at best, listen.

This is sounds like a rejuvenated band. Great hooks, some seriously swinging riffage and great playing all around. And the new singer does a FANTASTIC job of dancing that fine line between a solid tribute and obnoxious ripoff.

STP was always the band that should’ve up and died years ago, but they will not stop. Bravo.

Fuck YES. This is some of the best STP I've ever heard. That is saying a lot.

This sounds really good!! I will spend money on this.

 

I had enough STP after Shangri-La-Dee-Da, which was one album to late.

STP was sort of an odd coupling between the classic rock influenced brothers and the punk rock influenced singer.  Scott Weilland had a great baritone in a time of great baritones (Eddie Vedder, et al) but I'm guessing as a band, besides struggling with his drug habit they were struggling with creative differences as well.  I guess we'll never know for sure.  This sounds like the peppier mid-career STP stuff.  It's a bit of a "tribute" I guess but some bands change dramatically over the years, some just do the same kind of thing.  I think the world needs something like this right now.  Cool

I like. I go song by song, not so much the genre. Was never an overt fan of grunge but liked the occasional killer song it produced. Like FJ said this is peppy. Pretty commercial. I don't mind commercial if the song is good.

Never thought of STP as a grunge band. Just a band with their own sound. Terribly underrated and underappreciated IMO.

 

Dean DeLeo is one of those special guitarists that have a signature sound all his own. He sounds like no one else; no one sounds like him.

Dean and Rob definitely come through on all STP records.  They were definitely a Jersey band and I saw them in their heyday and before.  The only "grunge element" was the baritone voice of Scott Weilland even though he was far from grunge personally.  Add a minor key to some of the songs and they fit into the early 90s era.  Like most bands at the time, they were recorded with a very American sound and certainly wrote some songs in a certain style but you could always tell it was them.  This song is their classic sound, IMO.  A bit of a throwback.  It's as if the Foo Fighters shed a few guitarists and/or overdubs.
