The album can't be called a comeback -- the group were toiling away during the 2010s, after all -- but it certainly opens the door on another act in their career, one that is sonically tied to their past but feels brighter (and more relaxed) than their first chapters.


The album achieves all of those modest goals. It is competent and catchy. It rocks hard much of the time but also slows down for more tender and easygoing songs.

This album at it's worst is forgettable and bland but when it's good it really does make itself know. Some of these tracks have ... read more
“Sounds like any other band” type album.
Sharing a title with its 2010 predecessor, the most recent of back-to-back eponymously titled Stone Temple Pilots records is as much a spirited new beginning as its predecessor was a final definitive end. The reenergized DeLeo brothers (guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo) triumphantly return along with drummer Eric Kretz and newly acquired lead singer Jeff Gutt with a powerfully compelling re-boot for a band on their third frontman in five years. Putting the tragic and untimely ... read more
