POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

** 1/2 Talk Show, "Talk Show," Atlantic.

September 07, 1997|Steve Hochman

This may remind you of another band, but not Stone Temple Pilots--which it is, save for singer Dave Coutts in place of Scott Weiland--so much as Oasis. Suiting Coutts' sometimes Gallagher-esque voice, Robert DeLeo favors Anglo-rock guitar styles, combining at times with bassist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz's metallic whomp to involving effect. But overall this lacks the sonic range and imagination of STP's best.
