That Scott Weiland would be fired from Stone Temple Pilots cannot be seen as a bigger bang. That Chester Bennington from Linkin Park would take over his position is all the more unexpected and perhaps not particularly exciting if one is to be honest. Do not really think he has the charisma and attitude really needed and in terms of vocal style, it will not be either that fitting. However, the High Rise (EP) is far from a bad release as we are treated to five solid tracks. May think it's a little too polished and tame even if "Out Of Time" is a really good track. If the band will deliver a full album with this line-up, future will tell, but if so I hope that we can get a bit more edge than this.
