Tangle with Your Mind
Label: New West Records
Without Slash busting out mad riffs or the stress of living up to STP's '90s dominance, Scott Weiland can just be himself ... or his many selves. Ten years after releasing his solo debut of opiate-fueled, bluesy rockers, he is now "happy" and uses his new contentment to channel multiple personalities. His scratchy, strained croons allude to his troubled past, but beyond that he gives us Dylan Weiland on the twangy "Tangle With Your Mind," Bowie Weiland on "Paralysis" and the funky cover "Fame," Beach Boys Weiland on harmony-happy "Beautiful Day" and Prince Weiland on "Big Black Monster."
