Grunge at its finest
on 23 October 2003
This could well be the last release from this fine San Diego band... They will be sorely missed, but at least they're going out with a bang. There is a special version of this album which contains the DVD videos for all their singles..well worth the extra few quid..A quick review of some of the tracks, for people who dont know them....Vasoline the first track is a catching riff based song...9/10
down - a heavy track, but quality...not too many songs on this album from their last release shangri la dee da... the majority of songs on this are from the core and purple cds. there is a great rendition of plush acoustic from mtv unplugged. just listen to weilands voice... perfect.
one of the highlights is a track called 'lady picture show'. if you havent heard this before, you definitely will now.
In conclusion, this album will be good for fans who have all the cds by stp, but at least now you have them on 1 cd. if your new to stp then this will be perfect as you have the best songs by the band. although in reality when you listen to this, you will like it soo much that you will invariably go out and buy the other albums..
overall 9/10... which is a great score.. buy it
