Sophomore effort from Stone Temple Pilots back on wax. Purple was originally released in 1994 (following their breakout debut Core) and found the San Diego-based band delving deeper into the realms of hard rock and grunge, while flirting with psychedelic influences. Far from a sophomore slump, many consider this album to be one of their best. Includes the hit singles "Vasoline," "Interstate Love Song," "Big Empty," and more. 11 tracks in all.
