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. ~ Jason D.

Not what I was expecting

I'll admit i'm not a fan of silpknot, So i thought i would hate this album. But a mate told me i should listen to "Through Glass" ok its not on this album, But i was amazed with Corey Talors voice and how soft it was so i thought it best to check out this album. I actually cnt believe that it is Corey Taylor singing he has an amazing voice. I listend to the whole album from start to finish and i adore it, fav tracks "Get Inside" "Orchids" and "Bother". Deeply wreckomend to anyone who likes Slipkont or indeed metal in general u wont be disapointed

Get the same album, for less, on iTunes

You can get the exact same album for £4.99 on iTunes just swipe along and the cover is grey not black (unlike this). It's £3.00 less for the same thing. Hmm.. A bit weird


Listen to Orchids, Monoltith and Take A Number... enough said!

Although Slipknot made their mainstream debut in the late '90s, singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root got their start a few years prior in Stone Sour. Described as a cross between Metallica and Alice in Chains, the group spent several years playing the Iowa bar circuit before the two men joined Slipknot. Stone Sour re-formed in the early 2000s, though, and quickly distinguished themselves with a pair of gold-selling albums and three Grammy nominations. The band's reunion began in early 2002,...
