We gave it a B+
Army of Anyone’s stomping power chords and sludgy tempos are a throwback to ’90s arena grunge. But there’s a place for this band in 2006. Anchored by former Stone Temple Pilots Robert and Dean DeLeo, the group’s eponymous first record, Army of Anyone, has a riff-heavy sound much like STP’s, as well as Weiland-ian caterwauls courtesy of onetime Filter vocalist Richard Patrick. It’s all a bit derivative, but the DeLeo brothers’ melodic twists and turns prevent the songs from settling into a tired groove.
