While I can understand the gripings with the album, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. You can't do the same exact sound forever, but you can have a recognizeable one. I enjoyed being able to actually hear everything on the album instead of having to scan back over and over. The aggression is there along with the power but I feel this time they delivered it with a sniper rifle instead of using mortar rounds, mastered and clean instead of the confusing wall of sound. There is nothing wrong about being pissed at the world still, just now its on a different level. I need a month or 2 to see if I put it in my top list but I like it alot. (side note- Snuff definately either should have had some goofy samples at the end for a lead into All hope is Gone or switched the order.)

At first I was dissapointed, some of the songs were too... Stone Sourey (for lack of a better word) I thought Gehenna was trying to be like Skin Ticket and Prosthetics, and I skipped Snuff (I like Vermilion pt 2 but it sounded too much like Stone Sour's Zzyzx Rd.). But after a couple of listens the album started to grow on me (like most of my favourite albums, Not that it's one of them at the moment) Gehenna is one of my favourite songs on the album, along with Gematria (the killing name) and Psychosocial.

I think a lot of people need to open up their minds with this album, at the moment my only real problem with it is it has too much melodic vocals

(btw I still don't listen to Snuff)

I don't get why it's the cool thing to review this record. I haven't seen one other really relevant review of it apart from my own and this one.

I used to think that they were the heaviest band ever. I was completely wrong.

Its obvious slipknot hates the fact that their music isnt taken seriously because their fanbase consists on 13 year old wannabees thinking their metalheads so they decided to try something more varied... it seems they over did it... they tried mixing so many things together, the only good things that came out were songs based on their traditional style like Psychosocial and all hope is gone.

This album teared apart my likeness for this band, snuff sucks d1cks, and the only f@cking song that fills something in th album is "all hope is gone"

is the intend of getting rich of a ex-solid band that knew how to make their heavy but meaningfull music, but lost their main base and got into P@ssy┬┤s wannabes kind of music, i even liked Vol. 3, but this SH1T sounds like P.O.D trying to get into a grindcore kind of feeling...

Vol. 3 was perfect. This is them trying something different and it just didnt work. One of the biggest problems was the way that they recorded it. dont use that producer ever again and never record an album as separate parts again. They did guitars, then drums then vocals. How do they even feel like a band if they dont all go to the recording studio as one and come out with their finished piece all together.

what are you? stupid? I'm pretty sure that nearly every band records the instruments separately.

Yeah, most groups do. It sometimes works better is to record separately, but you often loose the genuine feeling that is associated with a group playing. Iron Maiden on their last few records played live, and that yielded some good results.
It's more of what is current the norm, what the group are most comfortable doing, and ultimately what works best.

This disappointed me hugely. I can't even listen to it all the way through anymore, get bored halfway through and end up putting something else on.
I was hoping it would be similar to their older stuff with some of Vol.3 mixed in. Oh well....still going to go see them on their UK tour in Dec.

I'll admit it - I'm a maggot. (And I'm 28 years old).

I believe that if you love then you love unconditionally- through thick or thin - through the good albumns...and the bad. And, as I'm sure you can guess - I love Slipknot.

I will admit that this is not their strongest or most cohesive effort, however, I love Slipknot, therefore, I love this albumn. I am not a fair-weather fan - I will not stop listening to them just because the songs on this albumn don't flow together like they should or that some of the songs are actually very Stone-Sourey...or Korn-ish...or even Disturbed-y. I will not stop listening to them because I absolutely HATE the "power ballad" song. I will not stop listening to this CD - or stop it halfway through because I'm bored with the songs towards the end of it.

No matter what they do, I will always listen to them and keep my mind open to their new music because I know without a doubt these guys are beyond talented and able to produce music that can blow anybody's f**cking head off. I just hope they are able to learn from their mistakes on this albumn so they can create an even better one next time (if there is a next time!). I have no doubts they can create a sound that is 100% Slipknot, yet also 100% grown-up and mature. They are still, obviously, mastering their craft as they all get older and the music scene changes.

So, on that note - MAGGOT 4 LIFE MOFO'S!!

(Oh and JERIMIAH - the lyrics go like this: "you are wrong, f**cked, and overrated - I think I'm gonna be sick and it's your fault.")

There are bands that I'm like that with, just not Slipknot.
As for the rest of that post, I don't know how "beyond talented" they are but they're not bad.

I enjoyed this quite a bit. It's quite brutal.

This 3.3 average is considerably more on-point than the 2 point-something it was heading for

You know as somebody who never liked Slipknot that much in the first place...this isn't really all that bad...some tracks are surprisingly good actually...I expected to hate this...
