Army of Anyone, Army of Anyone, EMI, Firm Music

As far as a lot of people are concerned Scott Weiland was Stone Temple Pilots, after he left STP and joined Slash and Co. for Velvet Underground not much attention was paidtothe brothers DeLeo. Fast forward to 2006, where former Filter front-man RichardPatrickhiresthe DeLeo brothers to help him write material for his upcoming solo project and after realizing the chemistry that they had together, the trio decided to hire Ray Luzier to man the drums and form Army of Anyone. Their eponymous debut is exactly what you would have expected STP to sound like had they been fronted by the lead singer of Filter and while not necessarily a bad thing, it offers nothing new to the listener. If the group had decided to try their hand at something new, this might have been considered a success. However this album makes for a less than exciting listen.
