3.0 out of 5 stars Same goods with some gimmicks. 22 Nov 2012
By Dessum
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album goes against itself in a way; the songs take on a more mainstream, repetitive, melodic structure yet try to be different by using a bunch of gimmicky samples and sounds. This may be a way of expressing some sort of myriad of subliminal messages but after a while it becomes boring and tacky. Ultimately, people usually buy an album for the music. So give us music, not garbled radio-EQ'd speech and pitch-bending strings to kill time. This is the most irritating aspect of the album.

The songs themselves are all rather similar to each other as well as to the songs on the album previous to this one, 'Audio Secrecy' e.g. 'Taciturn' to 'Zzyzx Rd.' and 'RU486' and/or `Last of the Real' to 'The Bitter End.' Personally, I don't really mind this too much as I take pleasure in the Stone Sour sound and feel, but it is something to note. The music itself is still enjoyable; there are no bad songs on the album but then again that's because they're all alike. Nonetheless, the sound is powerful with some great moments. The music has its pitfalls but it still shines.

According to Tim New Bound from rocksound.tv the album is "Based on Corey Taylor's fictional tale of a man faced with the choice of growing up or sheltering in the irresponsibility of youth." In an interview Taylor himself said that "the story is definitely influenced in a lot of ways... by my journey to figure out who I am," and he then goes on to talk about other influences and references, but having read Taylor's book I cannot help but feel that this album is almost entirely an expression of his childhood. This is neither a criticism nor a praise but an observation; often the lyrics merely portray an angsty teenager just shouting and generally being angry at people whilst wanting to "watch the whole world burn.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Singles 14 April 2014
By Will. B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stone Sour have been obviously compared to Slipknot since their first album, and yes Corey still uses his beautiful growl/scream on this album, but the band sounds like a true hard rock band now, even Jim Root (guitarist) is able to pull of slow melodic solos. VERY different to the angry and wildness of the masked maniacs Slipknot. Straight from the get go Part 1 hits hard with 'Gone Sovereign' and 'Absolute Zero' both heavy anthems that were the leading singles for the album. But the album doesn't keep this pace throughout, it is able to twist and turn through synth's and acoustic guitars to create a sound scape of pure beauty. In my opinion this album holds the true singles from the two part album like the giant sing-a-long 'Tired' and the mellow 'Taciturn', yet it still flows like am album and isn't carried by the first two tracks or the other singles. Plus when was the last time you got a story out of an album? *Applause*
Essential Tracks:
Gone Sovereign
Absolute Zero

For some reason I went off Stonesour after their first 2 albums. Listened to this on Amazon and Planet Rock and realised how much I was missing.
