Thought to be ripping off Pearl Jam when they first appeared on the music scene but after later review are actually way fucking better than Pearl Jam. All their albums rock. Especially their debut "Core", "Purple" and "No.4".
hated by rock critics in the early 90's because of their commerical sound and similarities to seattle groups (although unfair, only plush sounds vocally like pearl jam) but still wrote some great material, notably plush, atlanta, and so i know and big empty.
Their thrid album "tiny music...songs from the vatican giftshop" is their greatest achievement.
lead singer Scott Weiland now fronts pseudo cock-rock outfit "velvet revolver".
