5.0 out of 5 stars rock... with meaning, 14 Mar. 2003
By 
This review is from: Stone Sour (Audio CD)
This album is really superb. Showing the natural talent and versatility of Corey Taylor's voice, as well as genius songwriting and heartfelt lyrics. This will be a real winner with a lot of Slipknot fans, (the ones who are accepting to Taylor developing a more mellow style with this band), but also with a lot of Slipknot critics. Taylor can no longer be accused of having little talent, demonstrating a seemingly unnecessarily overload of growling, or writing lyrics which are 98% offensive. No, this stuff is quite different.
The obvious standout track is 'Bother' - so totally different to any of Slipknot's music that it's hard to believe it's the same guy singing. A really beautiful, melodic rock ballad with orchestration and gentle harmonies that almost make you want to cry.
Other good tracks are Monolith (personal favourite), Take A Number and Blue Study. The songs vary from downbeat and melancholy, to brutal and angry. Get Inside is a great opener for it's sheer energy, and tracks such as Inhale (possibly next single) show a more emotional and personal side to Taylor's songwriting, although not in the same vein as his Slipknot lyrics of negative childhood experiences which, understandably, can be a bit depressing at times.
This album takes a couple listens to get into but it really is sooo f**king good and definitely worth buying, also a band worth seeing live as they are incredible and have a wonderful clientele of fans. So yeah...god...BUY THIS ALBUM! It doesn't matter if you love or hate Slipknot, this is universally appealling and a real gem....
