4.0 out of 5 stars slipknot hit back hard, 29 Aug 2001
there is one word which best sums up this album and that is unforgiving. It is a non-stop ride of screaming and crunching riffs, extending the sound of their debut album into something more substantial. With Iowa the 9 mam team from Des Moines have released an album that have seen them emerge as serious players in modern metal. Their take on death metal is unique and the vigour with which they play their songs is exhilarating. Personally I feel the album starts off fairly weakly with People = Shit, one of the worse songs on the album, but quickly lead to the slughtly more melodic yet still unrelentingly heavy ( and new Slipknot classics) My Plague and Gently. We then witness the metal assault of the Heretic Anthem and future single Left Behind. At the end, however, we come to the strangest part. The 15 min title track which is clearly producer Ross Robinson's Baby (note "Daddy" by Korn on their debut) and even though it has a perhaps overly slow intro provides to be the albums highlight. It is a better album overral than their debut and with it they firmly etch their own niche in today's metal market.

5.0 out of 5 stars ultimate party rock album, 25 Aug 2001
This review is from: Slippery When Wet (Audio CD)
slippery when wet is simply the best of the 80s rock albums. From the opening keyboard solo of let it rock to wild in the streets the group take you for a ride. anyone also fedup with the number of ballads released recently will be glad to see only one on the album, Never Say Goodbye. The album also contains arguably the groups best song, the sing-a-long classic Living On A Prayer and also holds a few others in the same vein such as Raise Your Hands (a presonal favorite) and You Give Love A Bad Name. The album also features their original and best cowboy song,Wanted Dead Or Alive re-released recently as Wanted 2001 on their Live Album. Bon Jovi would go on to make more serious (and perhaps better) albums such as Keep The Faith and the darker These Days but this is their ultimate feel-good album and is head and shoulders above last years attempted return to this style of music, Crush.
