Amazing Album; Expected nothing less from a top band
on 8 April 2013
Stone Sour have always been a band that has been able to produce great albums consistently, and this is no exception.
Below is the track listings with individual thoughts on each! My personal views won't obviously be the same as everyone elses though!I think the second half of the album is better...but many will probably disagree.
The album overall is a lot darker than House of Gold & Bones Part 1.
1."Red City" - A powerful and slow opening track; somewhat moving and unnerving!
2."Black John" - Pace picked up, an epic guitar solo to complete a very good, rocky song.
3."Sadist" - Another slower song, prefer this to Red City personally. Still carrying on the unnerving undertone. Jim Root further proving himself as a guitar master with another great solo.
4."Peckinpah" - Great Chorus and guitar riffs.
5."Stalemate" - Very catchy, love this song; one of my album favourites.
6."Gravesend" - Heavy and Dark.
7."'82" - Excellent song; and great guitar work.
8."The Uncanny Valley" - Great Lyrics, very tuneful and a good guitar riff.
9."Blue Smoke" - Not a massive fan of this song personally.
10."Do Me a Favor" - The first single from the album, very catchy, very rocky - somewhat different, but EPIC!
11."The Conflagration" - Bit of a tone down in pace from the previous song, still very good, somewhat choral in places. Glorious, melodic guitar solo!
12."The House of Gold & Bones" - Title track, you expect it do be pretty darn good, and it is!! Very good indeed!
Overall an excellent album.
Perhaps give it a listen online first if you are unsure.
Excellent work Corey and Co.
