Big Bang Baby

Genre: Rock; Status: In Season

The good news: The Stone Temple Pilots don’t sound like Pearl Jam clones anymore. The bad news: On ”Big Bang Baby”, the bash-it-out single from their upcoming Tiny Music… Songs From the Vatican Gift Shop, they weld together a spy-movie riff and a hair-metal chorus and end up not sounding like anything, not even their old derivative selves. The same old news: Stardom still sucks, as evidenced by lyrics like ”sell your soul to sign an autograph.”
