Stone Temple Pilots
Thank You (Atlantic Records)

By: Alex Steininger

One of the 90s most influential grunge/alt. rock acts, Stone Temple Pilots sold millions of records, and inspired countless junior high and high schoolers to go out and start a hard rock band. They also helped set the bar low for hard rock bands of their ilk to follow in their footsteps and dominate the radio. Thank You collects the band's best material, all their singles, including tracks such as "Sex Type Thing", "Plush", "Vasoline", "Down", and "Trippin On A Hole In A Paper Heart". Sadly, Thank You really is a best of because the band seemed to be at the top of their game on their singles, relying on them for their prolonged career. And, together, they make a decent hard rock record, whereas you couldn't say that about a Stone Temple Pilots' record. I'll give this a C.
