And holy moly this is heavy! A superintense riffing starts of almost immediately on the first song, with the drums totally ripping my speakers with this hard driven metallic, industrial, frantic almost blast beaty immense feel.
Old fans might think this is slow and dull, but the truth is, Stone Temple Pilots deserve to be heard, and not just a fast playthrough. They deserve to be listened to, because this is a good album!

They have created their own sound and DNA which you can hear on all of their albums. They have a great sense of melody and harmonisation similar to big bands like Queen, Saga and Sparks, a pop feel like Jellyfish and the metal progressiveness of bands like Dream Theater.
Will it please the fans expecting a new “Images and Words”-album or will it please the fans hoping to listen to a new “Black Clouds and Silver Linings”? The easy answer is – None of them and both of them.
