The new Stone Temple album is surprisingly really really good. Freakin’ loved it. Listened to it while working out at the gym today. When these guys kept going on without Scott Weiland, I have had my doubts and didn’t think they would be able to do it without him but they did. They still kill it and they still sound like STP even without Scott on vocals. The new singer sounds pretty close to Scott anyways.
Only very few iconic bands can go on without their original singers successfully for example Van Halen did it with Sammy Hagar, AC/DC did it with Brian Johnson, Genesis did it with Phil Collins and now STP did it with Jeff Gutt.
STP got a lot of backlash trying to move on without Scott but give them a chance. The new singer took a while to grow on me. Now I’m a fan of STP again.
I think I’m going to be listening to this album a lot. It’s a keeper for sure!
