An unconventional Slipknot ranking, but I will stand my ground.
Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses
This album is a bore and a slog to get through, not a big fan of the production, tracks just come and go without much of note to be remembered. The album almost feels like a collection of B-sides, there are some memorable moments such as the energetic snare roll moment at the end of The Blister Exists and the singles. Before I Forget is one of the best Slipknot songs, but my lord, track 10 on this album, getting through basically 7 songs of monotony besides the great other singles to get to Before I Forget is agony.
Favorite Tracks: Duality, Vermilion, Before I Forget
.5: The Gray Chapter
.5: The Gray Chapter is what happens when Slipknot's arena rock formula goes wrong, there was not a lot on this album that recaptured the same AHIG feeling, a lot of tracks are forgettable, but there a few diamonds in the rough.
Favorite Tracks: Killpop, Nomadic, The Devil in I
The debuted self titled album by Slipknot is a great burst of energetic nu metal. Certainly one of the most interesting nu metal albums released at the time, the album is great fun, but I only find myself coming back to the singles a lot of the time.
Favorite Tracks: (sic), Wait and Bleed, Surfacing
We Are Not Your Kind
We Are Not Your Kind kind of recaptured that radio rock + brutal mode they had on AHIG quite well. Although I don't think this album was as good as that album, I do admire them for trying some new things such as on Spiders.
Favorite Tracks: Red Flag, Orphan, Not Long for This World
The best their heavier side has to offer, a relentless album that pulls no punch. I can of course see why this is a lot of peoples tops, but just not quite for me personally.
Favorite Tracks: Left Behind, People = Shit, Disasterpiece
All Hope Is Gone
The first album by them that grabbed my attention, I do love almost every song on here. The reason I believe this to be their best is because it bridges the gap between their brutal side and their arena rock type side fantastically
Favorite Tracks: Vendetta, Snuff, Sulfur, Vermilion, Pt. 2 - Bloodstone Mix
|Not many will agree I am aware|
|Commenting so I can read this over lunch.|
|get to fuck|
|nah im kidding, whilst this wouldnt be my ranking, i have enjoyed reading this list. Iowa not #1 is criminal tho|
|great list mayne|
|Finally someone giving AHIG the love it deserves. I dont think it's #1 knot or a 5, but its easily top 3 knot.|
|stirring the pot a little bit, cheers for those who trying to understand without writing it off immediately|
|Tbh I've never given the post-Gray/Jordison albums a real chance. Jay is a great drummer but fuck man Joey Jordison was like 75% of why I initially got into the band.|
|wtf this is such a strange ranking. I guess at least it isn't generic.|
|I actually agree with this ranking except 2 and 1 should be switched|
|4 is 1, 6 is 2, 2 is 3, nothing else is of any consequence for anyone over the age of 16. this is the truth and it is infallible|
|all hope is gone really wasn't that bad though. just irrelevant.|
|Lol AHIG is god-awful, I don’t know how we managed to have EXACTLY opposite views on that and Vol. 3 lol|
Literally the rest of the ranking is on point but switch the top and bottom wtf
|And one of your top tracks from it is a Vol. 3 remix yo |
|no words shalt falter me|
|"no words shalt falter me" |

|6 is 1|
|The only albums I don’t listen to much on here is Iowa And Yge Gray Chapter. Seems like both have a few aimless tracks. But dig all the rest, including AHIG. |
