SHANGRI-LA DE DA, the fifth and finest album from the incomparable Stone Temple Pilots finds the California quartet continuing to carve out their own unique musical terrain, blending diamond-hard riffs, psychedelic experimentation, punk energy, and Beatlesque melodies into their most stunningly inspired artistic realization to date. Taking its title from the Malibu studio where it was conceived and recorded, the album shows STP operating at the peak of their trademark powers on cuts like "Hollywood Bitch" and "Days Of The Week," while swingin' new tracks such as "About A Fool" and "Bipolar Bear" evince the band's interest in the bossa nova beats of legendary Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim. Produced as ever by longtime studio partner Brendan O'Brien, SHANGRI-LA DE DA is more adventurous, more honest, and more ambitious than the majority of modern music - exactly what you've come to expect from the one-and-only Stone Temple Pilots.

"Shangri-La Dee Da stands with the band's best work ... In fact, it may be well be the brooding California group's pinnacle.  Parke Puterbaugh, VH-1
"Scott Weiland is as flamboyant as any glam-rocker...and slippery as a ghost.  Chris Willman, Entertainment Weekly

Muze PNote Falling between the eclectic expanse of 1996's TINY MUSIC and the dark heaviness of 1999's NO.4, SHANGRI-LA DEE DA vacillates between extroverted frontman Scott Weiland's wistful musings and guitarist Dean DeLeo's weighty riffs. Drawing from real-life trauma and hardship caused by his self-destructive tendencies, Weiland's lyrics achieve clarity not previously reached. When he's not railing against the demons of an addictive lifestyle ("Dumb Love") or recounting the tale of Kurt and Courtney (the shimmering "Too Cool Queenie") this grizzled survivor peels away the layers of his own mental state (the Zeppelin-like "Bi-Polar Bear"). Throughout SHANGRI-LA, STP's impressive musical range allows for a gorgeous song about Weiland's newborn son ("A Song For Sleeping"), the poisonous price of fame (the groove-driven grunge of "Hollywood Bitch"), and the battle through rumor and innuendo towards the bliss of recovery ("Regeneration"). With Weiland's demons put to rest (for the time being), Stone Temple Pilots are back on the trail to modern rock immortality that's already claimed many of their early-'90s contemporaries.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (7/5/01, p.138)
- 3.5 out of 5 stars - "...The span of moods and melodies is sprawling...this time the lyrics take on a deeper tinge....This may be the most soul-searching album STP have ever done...roaring like a jukebox on a Saturday night."

Q (10/01, p.130)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...The art-rock sensibility gleaned from Weiland's old David Bowie albums is evident....The rehabilitation is complete."

Mojo (Publisher)
(9/01, p.114)
- "...An interestingly mixed-up album..."


Stone Temple Pilots might have seemed like an overnight success to some, but the fact is they'd been slogging it out in Southern California clubs for several years before they "made it." Scott Weiland (born in Santa Cruz, CA, but raised in Ohio and Southern California), Robert De Leo (from New Jersey), and Eric Kretz (also from Santa Cruz) have been playing together for nearly ten years, but the band didn't really become the band until Robert convinced his brother Dean De Leo to move out to California and join up.

"I think we all know we have something very special between us. There is a lot of love there, and we still appreciate making music together, and that outweighs all the negative s--t and gives us a reason to work through our personal problems," says Scott.

Stone Temple Pilots signed with Atlantic on April Fools' Day, 1992. Corewas released in September of 1992 and includes such radio/video chestnuts as "Sex Type Thing," "Plush" and "Wicked Garden." Purple, the band's second album, was recorded in three weeks during March of 1994, and released that June. It entered the national album chart at #1 (where it remained for three consecutive weeks) and stayed on the charts for a really long time.

In the first two-and-a-half years of their success, Stone Temple Pilots played with an almost surreal variety of artists: Neil Young, Jawbox, the Rolling Stones, Firehose, Megadeth, the Flaming Lips, Basehead, the Meat Puppets, and the Butthole Surfers all either headlined or opened shows with STP. The group's third album, Tiny Music...Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop made its debut in 1996, and their fourth album, appropriately titled No. 4, appeared in 1999.

Shangri-La De Da, the fifth and finest album from STP finds the California quartet continuing to carve out their own unique musical terrain, blending diamond-hard riffs, psychedelic experimentation, punk energy, and Beatlesque melodies into their most stunningly inspired artistic realization to date.
