Album Review

While Stone Sour formed as an avenue from which Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root could unleash their vision without upsetting the legions of Slipknot followers, it is in fact a much more impressive statement than many bands of its ilk. Those who heard "Wait and Bleed" during its radio days should be well aware that Taylor has the ability to actually sing, and on this release he does, bringing forth noticeable influences from Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. Surprisingly, Taylor is quite adept at this vocal platform, and sings with conviction, while Root plays guitar as only he can, with determined intensity. While the lyrical content shares a myriad of similarities with Slipknot, Taylor comes across as much less infuriated and this allows the songs themselves to settle smoothly, yet motivate the listener to feel the emotion being squeezed out. Many should be familiar with "Bother," which first was found on the Spider-Man soundtrack in the spring of 2002, but the songs that stand out the most are tracks like "Orchids" and "Take a Number," which strike with surprising force for an alternative rock group. The most remarkable aspect of Stone Sour's self-titled debut is how the album grows on the listener with repeat plays. Where most hard rock albums wane after too many listens, Stone Sour instead gains strength, making this an excellent album and a much more accomplished effort than Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison's Murderdolls plaything.

I can listen to the whole CD!!!

Great work from Corey taylor and Jim root from Slipknot, ths is one of the few cds that i can listen too all of the way through! Fav songs for me would have to be monolith, orchids, inside the cynic, get inside and a relaxing bother (from spiderman sound track). Top cd!!!

Worth Listening To.

This is a very good first album from Stone Sour, I especially praise the vocal ability of Corey Taylor, because he can actually sing, this is shown through the song Bother which is more relaxed than compared that of Slipknot, but it also shows Corey's talented vocal abilities, I would also like to praise Jim Root's guitar abilities, although it is very different from Slipknot's thrash metal style it shows how his ability can come out.

The song's from this album that stand out for me include; Bother, Inside The Cynic, Rules of Evidence and get Inside. I also liked this deluxe edition because of the five bonus track's that are present.


i think stone sour is better then slipknot because slipknot are all thrash metal but in stone sour bother relaxing and snuff by relaxing to.
