While lacking the sort of melodic genius Weiland brought to the STP table, Bennington proves himself a decent successor here. The instrumentation is as tight as ever, and the production sparkling. 5 decent tunes, that once past the 2 singles become less radio friendly and more inventive, once again breaking new ground for the band, something that was lacking on their recent self titled LP.
Probably not one for hardcore Linkin Park fans, unless they were already STP fans, but STP fans should find much to enjoy here provided they can concern themselves with music rather than personnel gripes.
Dunno how ive missed tgis band all these years.
Im going to make ut my mission to listen to them with there previous singer to compare
It is great to hear Chester's voice being put to good use since Linkin Park have gone off the boil, and it works so well with the grinding rock of the Pilots.
Bring on a full length album!
More akin to the most recent STP album, 'High Rise' is definitely on the 'classic rock' end of the alternative rock spectrum, as opposed to the nu metal side normally frequented by Chester Bennington's main band, Linkin Park. That said, he turns in a fine performance here, providing a vocal which fits perfectly with the songs and which probably isn't a million miles removed from what Scott himself might have done.
In short, if you are a fan of STP, there's a good chance you will like this.
Past experience would suggest that the Mark II line up will only be an interim solution prior to a potentially more lucrative reunion of the classic line up. But if that does turn out to be the case, then I hope they hurry up and get an album out, rather than leave us debating about what could have been.
I thought that Chester's vocals were complimentary to the music. Yes, he is not Scott Weiland, but he is not trying to be him either. He added a different dynamic to the group that I think was both positive and well needed. The Deleo brothers and Eric Kretz are solid throughout and the songs are a welcome addition to the already impressive back catalogue.
The vinyl is a good quality 10" and the packaging and artwork is what is to be expected from an EP
True fans of S.T.P will note that this is not the first time that the other members of the band have recorded with another frontman. That beng Dave Couuts. The band(and self titled album)Talkshow proved it could be done although the vocal style was very different from Weiland's and the album didn't do very well sales wise.
Will this be the only offering from Stone Temple Pilots featuring Chester Bennington?
Scott Weiland and the band are fighting over who owns the S.T.P band name. Maybe they should have resurrected Talkshow?
Best song in my opinion is track 5, Tomorrow which I think sounds the most like S.T.P of old.
