With a heroin battle and a stint in jail behind him, life's been a struggle for Scott Weiland. Yet his tunes still feel effortless. His '90s band's comeback LP (the group's first in close to a decade) preserves their seminal sound (surging guitars abound!), and the singer even addresses his marital bust-up on the No. 1 Billboard rock hit "Between the Lines."
