TAKE A LOAD OFF with Stone Temple Pilots

B+

Heroin and Velvet Revolver behind him, Scott Weiland sounds downright effervescent on the first Stone Temple Pilots disc in nearly a decade. There’s nothing new here, just cheap and easy pop-rock mimicry (the Beatles, Petty, Nirvana, Bowie, Aerosmith), siphoned through spry, crunchy grunge riffs. ”Between the Lines” alludes to Weiland’s druggie past, but the ponderous soul-baring that often weighs him down has all but disappeared.
