iTunes Review

Stone Sour was founded in 1992 by Slipknot's frontman Corey Taylor and their drummer Joel Ekman, later recruiting guitarist Jim Root. They took a long hiatus in 1997 after Slipknot blew up, then came together in 2002 to release their eponymous debut a decade after their formation. The album's standout ballad "Bother" was featured on the Spiderman soundtrack and propelled the band further into the consciousness (and CD collections) of the masses, earning two Grammy nominees before going Gold. Listening to it alongside the opening track here, "Get Inside," it's difficult to believe both songs came from the same band. "Bother" sounds like it was written specifically for high school slow dances, "Get Inside" masks its melodies with hard rocking guitar distortion, rapid-fire drum triggers and gnarled vocals in verses reminiscent of early Trent Reznor recordings. The haunted "Inhale" slithers with a menacing melody before Ekman croons with elongated inflections, showcasing the versatility of his dynamic vocal range.

Incredible Album for a Maturing Artist

Hands down Amazing Album. I had no idea that this was the lead vocalist for Slipknot until I was a few minutes into "Orchids." However, once I heard it I recognized it and checked to find out to my surprise it was Corey Taylor one and the same. I'm going to say, I wasn't too big of a fan of Slipknot. I loved the concept, and I loved the creativity put into their style. I especially was a huge fan of "Wait and Bleed." However, it's obvious from this album that they are growing as artists. The diversity of this album ranging from hardcore to an almost classic rock style with the emotion and devotion put into the unique sound of this album gives me no other choice that to give it two thumbs way up. I greatly anticipate future works from this amazing band.


Personally, I like this CD much better then I do the new one (Come What(Ever) May) This cd shows the intensity of Stone Sour. Especially in GET INSIDE, Corey had his scream. In Slipknots Vol. 3 his scream sucked. In Come What(Ever) May, it came back a little. He needs some time to rest up; & get his scream back. You compare Get Inside with 30/30-150. I bet you'll like Get Inside more (vocal wise) :]

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,...
