25 years ago today, Stone Temple Pilots released their sophomore album, an LP which defied the odds by failing to qualify as a slump and, indeed, going on to sell more than six million copies.

Produced by Brendan O’Brien, PURPLE definitely showed that the band’s debut album, CORE, was in no way a one-off success, starting with the fact that it premiered at the very top of the Billboard 200. More importantly, however, PURPLE took great pains to show that Stone Temple Pilots’ sound, which unquestionably fell into the realm of grunge, was evolving considerably, so if anyone thought that the band might fall away with the fading of that musical movement, they were wrong.

Between “Big Empty,” “Vasoline,” and “Interstate Love Song,” Stone Temple Pilots were ubiquitous on rock radio during 1994, but let’s face it: those songs continue to be played even now, which confirms just how strongly the band’s reputation was cemented during this era.
