9/10??? Sir, I believe you may have that confused with 2 or 3. This album sonically sounds muddy and lacks any sort of anger that made them a cult favorite with kids in the late 90’s early 2000’s…this album would be better suited as a follow up to the Stone Sour Debut album then the 5th album of Slipknot.

Jeff Gruhala says:

Awesome review! I’d just like to say, the more you listen to it, the better and better it gets. 

Demon Rantz says:

R.I.P Paul Gray

JackWhite974 says:

This was a great review for the album. While most base its quality of the previous albums(self titled and Iowa to be specific), this looked at this with what was going on at the time and gave an unbiased review.

I miss Paul

Woah, a 9/10? I didn’t know you enjoyed SlipKnoT so much. Definitely one of my favorite bands

matt Walter says:

do a Iowa review

Wretneck says:

I’ve written many long reviews about why the song “The Devil In I” is a great track. Many extent I find it to be the best song of theirs when it comes to dark tones and atmospheres. Despite being a fan of their heavy and faster work, it becomes a bit too crowded making it difficult to appreciate each song as their own. And I think Slipknot finds its dark core every time they take time and slow down-

Prelude 3.0
The Virus Of Life
The Devil In I

Elastic Waistband says:

I absolutely ADORE this album. It’s everything you could possibly want from Slipknot. It’s heavy. It’s dark. It’s brooding. It’s a 10/10 for me and among my favorite albums of all time.

Nick Grossman says:

Good review. You should review the new Devin Townsend double album Z2. Disc One ‘Sky Blue’ is Devin Townsend Project and disc two is ‘Dark Matters’ which is chapter two of the Ziltoid series. 😉

Tonny Bivans says:

Tyler Ballard says:

Spot on man. Great variety of tracks on this album. From slow and grinding to fast and something to beat your head off the wall to. Proud of these guys for what they overcame to create such a killer record.
