The critics got it wrong on this one. Stone Temple Pilots might not have been 'there' first but this album features some incredible songs; sure, the chorus to 'Sin' sounds like Alice In Chains, but hey, it's as good as anything AIC have put out (and I love AIC)! Just listen to Plush; it didn't win a Grammy for nothing you know!

Stone Temple Pilots were heavily criticised following the release of this album for imitating bands such as Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. While there is no doubt that the overall sound of "Core" is akin to the Seattle sound it would be wrong to say that the band were merely copying their peers. "Core" contains some of the finest songs to have been written in the 1990's such as the Grammy winning "Plush" and the fantastic "Dead and Bloated". The album has a great depth to it with "Sex Type Thing" and the acoustic "Creep" illustrating the range in sound and mood. Having explored the band's entire back catalogue I would strongly recommend purchasing this album over any of the others. It's not the most original rock album you'll ever hear but it's certainly among the best.

Having been a fan of STP since hearing Purple many moons ago, I decided to stock up on more of their titles. I had had this title on tape originally, but have recently been updating my CD collection. What a blast when I put this on the CD player! I hadn't heard it for years. From the rocking "Sex Type Thing" to the rock ballad style "Plush", the band have managed to capture all emotions in every song. I enjoy Core more everytime I listen to it. A must for any fan who has only got 1 STP title - you'll love it guaranteed!!

Along with Alice In Chains's excellent album Dirt, Core is one of The defining Grunge albums.
Now with this new DVD audio format the album is given an extra dimension in sound quality over its CD counterpart that needs to be heard to be believed.
Dead and Bloated, Sex Type Thing and Crackerman really rock Out, but every track on this album is excellent. Every instrument can be heard with stunning definition and the surround sound really does make it feel & sound like Scott Weiland and Co. are in the room with you.
Highly recommended

Wow! what an album.
This is intense, angry and incredibly powerful. The highlights for most are 'Dead & Bloated', 'Wicked Garden' and the violent and disturbing 'Sex Type Thing'. For me the hits are 'Sin', 'Crackerman' and my personal fave the laid back and melancholy 'Creep'. The entire album is absoloutely solid and there is not one moment that i feel is below par...so why the drop of one star.
Well....
The thing is, and this is a comparitive thing with the subsequent albums, that 'Core' is more of a single level kind of album. The tracks are undoubtly great but have the feel of a bunch of singles as opposed to being a part of an album. Where subsequent albums managed a greater level of diversity 'Core' is grounded in a much more set sound (possibly this is down to a production decision) and where this could be a unifying element in some albums on this it makes the album a little (and only a little) flat. For this minor point it loses a star.
This is a great and rather special album that is the most accessable of the STP catalouge. It will not disapoint but the best is still to come if you explore the other albums

Hailed as a classic album when first released- STP with their crunching guitars and melodys overridden by Scott Weilands tremendous voice certaintly made a splash in the 90s. Often bundled as the grunge wannabe's- this on reflection seems harsh- though Weiland was obviously modelling himself on Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley.

Yet it is only as we are now in the musical decline that one can fully apprecaite STP's output. They weren't supposed to be an arena filling band, but at their height that is exactly what happened and one of the key ingredients is that they had great songs. Dead and Bloated, Sex Type Thing and Wicked Garden are quite superb and even better in a live setting.

A superb debut if a little over produced.

By Chris Hall TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Jan. 2006
Format: Audio CD
The year of 1992 saw the release of the Stone Temple Pilots' debut album ‘Core’ through the Atlantic Records label. Delivering a thick slice of grunge rock in the shadow of Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Blind Melon, the four-piece American grunge outfit have managed to produce an album that has stood the test of time, remaining as one of grunge’s most influential and important releases. The album started off the career of this musically talented and creative group who have released a further four albums to date. Lead singer Scott Weiland has further gone on to join the rock super group ‘Velvet Revolver’.
From the sheer meaty appeal of the classic track “Sex Type Thing” to the slow, acoustic cry of “Creep” the CD is a well-crafted and inspired work of grunge rock genius. With aching similarities to Alice In Chains numbers, the band are excused such trivialities because of the sheer creative and inspirational skill that has been put into creating the twelve diverse tracks that make up the album. Weiland’s vocals are rough and gritty with a haunting melodic edge to them which blends to the music style like a dead fly to caviar.
This is one of those albums that should be in any respectable rock collection. If you haven’t heard it yet, then just go out and buy yourself a copy now!
