3.0 out of 5 stars A nice idea, but doesn't deliver, 5 Mar. 2007
This review is from: 9.0: Live (Audio CD)
Slipknot are famed for their incredible live shows, so when this came out i had high expectations. Unfortunatly, the best thing about the live show is the atmosphere, which you just don't get by listening to it in your living room.

The sound quality is fantastic, and the tracks are all merged together so it feels like one long concert track (when it's actually a compilation of their best live performances from their Vol.3 tour - you'd never know apart from the fact he says "Yes singapore!" on one track and "I love Las Vegas" on the next), but corey simply can't scream like he used to be able to, and he slurrs a lot of his words when he's trying to sing really quickly. Corey performs better on the songs from Vol.3, obviously because he doesn't scream as hard as he does on the other albums.

He also swears a hell of a lot too (the first thing corey says is "are you ready for this Sh!t motherf*ckers!") which isn't a problem, except when your Dad asks to listen to it...

Musically though, it isn't all that bad, you get used to corey's slurred vocals eventually, so I'd recommend it if you've never heard any of their stuff before and want a lot of tracks for a good price.

But considering Slipknot's reputation for amazing live shows, it's just not what I was expecting. It would have been good to package it with a DVD with some live videos.

If you want to listen to some good live shows, buy Disasterpieces, so you can see all the action as well (or just type slipknot in youtube).
