STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Core

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Core

Stone Temple Pilots roared on to the scene in 1992 with their raucous debut Core.

A breakout success, the album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, dominated radio waves with hits like “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden,” and has been certified 8x platinum by the RIAA.

The band also took home the 1994 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single “Plush.”

Although it faced initial criticisms for being derivative of other grunge bands, such as Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, time has gained Core recognition as a classic of the 1990s alternative rock era and remains a pivotal album in the Stone Temple Pilot’s discography.

Critics praised the band’s musicianship, Scott Weiland’s charismatic vocals, and the album’s songwriting.

Core showcases a diverse range of musical styles, blending elements of alternative rock, grunge, hard rock, and even psychedelic influences.

The band’s sound is characterised by powerful guitar riffs and a melodic bassline.

The album strikes a balance between heavy, grunge-infused tracks and more introspective, melodic compositions.

Songs such as “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden” exemplify the band’s heavier, hard rock side, while tracks like “Plush” and “Creep” showcase their ability to craft emotionally charged, radio-friendly ballads.

The album’s eclectic mix of styles contributed to its widespread appeal and longevity in the alternative rock scene.

The top-notch Analogue Productions reissue earmarks are all here.

Mastered directly from the original master tape by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound and cut at 45 RPM.

Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, and housed in tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing.

Analogue Productions

Analogue Productions It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson's The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard. Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release. Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz. Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions' history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat "King" Cole and Norah Jones. True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes - more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound - richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
