EDITORS’ NOTES

In stark contrast to the swaggering bravado of Stone Temple Pilots’ debut, Purple wallows in psychedelic murk littered with fractured psyches. Scott Weiland sounds downright frazzled on the violently careening "Unglued"; ditto for "Lounge Fly", which finds the group slowing to a menacing crawl. Throughout, their arena-sized sound is smothered in churning drums, weary guitars and Weiland's ragged growl. Even on the catchy “Interstate Love Song”—which boasts a fabulous, Led Zeppelin-inspired groove—the band’s temperament comes stained with sadness and loss.
