LOS ANGELES – Stone Temple Pilots roared on to the scene 25 years ago with their raucous debut Core. A breakout success, the album peaked at on the Billboard charts, dominated radio waves with hits like Sex Type Thing and Wicked Garden, and has been certified 8x Platinum by the RIAA. The band also took home the 1994 Grammy® Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single Plush. To mark the legendary album’s silver anniversary, Rhino will release two versions on September 29, which is 25 years to the day of the album’s original debut
Album · 1994 · 11 Songs. 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.
Stone Temple Pilots had hits with Core, but they got no respect. They suffered a barrage of savage criticism and it must have hurt, since their second effort seems a conscious effort to distinguish themselves as a band not indebted to grunge. That didn't get them anywhere, as they were attacked as viciously as before, but Purple is nevertheless a quantum leap over their debut, showcasing a band hitting its stride.
