Album Review

What sets Stone Sour apart from others of their breed is the band's ability to create smooth, radio-friendly alternative metal songs while simultaneously not boring the people who have heard way too much from post-grunge groups. The secret to this lies in guitarist James Root's unique style and drummer Roy Mayorga's unyielding intensity. Root and singer Corey Taylor re-created Stone Sour after the success of Slipknot in the late '90s; the band was meant to serve as a more introspective, melodic, and creative outlet for them, while not disenfranchising the fans of Slipknot. Stone Sour are more fierce than most alternative metal groups, incorporating brash heavy metal into many of their songs. The band's aggressive self-titled debut was far more reminiscent of Slipknot, but Come What(ever) May is moving further and further away from the shock rock, rap-rock aspect that originally brought Slipknot into the mainstream. Taylor lets loose his nearly metal growl (which is nearly untouchable compared to most of his contemporaries) on occasion, but maybe not as often as he should. The album's better moments are felt when his relentless, vicious pipes — coupled with distortion-heavy riffs and double bass drum — forge their way through the immaculately produced sound. Come What(ever) May starts out strong with the bass drum-heavy "30/30-150." The song explodes out of the speakers; it's a solid metal start for an album that dips between alternative rock, heavy metal, and post-grunge. Unfortunately, the album isn't always interesting. Songs like "Through Glass" are your average run-of-the-mill alternative metal tunes, and after a certain point the album seems to have little new to offer. "Sillyworld" follows along the same lines, but still has more in common with Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed" than a Godsmack song. Still, Come What(ever) May has plenty of shining moments and it rocks hard, channeling heavy metal and blending it with alternative melodies. It's an unyielding effort from a promising talent — one that might just help save alternative metal from becoming deeply generic. [This is the clean version of the album.]

Customer Reviews

This Album Rocks!

I think that this is an excellent album, and heres what i think about the songs. 30/30-150- Everyone seems to love this song, but I don't think that its Stone Sours best song. Not saying that its junk or anything, just saying that it isn't the best9/10 Come What(ever)May- Great title track, and is one of my favorites.10/10 Hell & Consequences- Good song. If you like Come WHat(ever)May or Made of Scars, then this is your song. 9.5/10 Sillyworld- This is one of Stone sours softer ones. I like Through Glass and Zzyzx Rd. but this song just doen't do it for me. But if you like it, don't let my review stop you. 6.5/10 Made of Scars- My second favorite on the album, and the lyrics in the verses totally rock. Just listen carefully and you'll see what I mean. 11/10 Reborn- Right after the excellent Made of Scars is my favorite track on the album. Just like 30/30-150, it really shows their Slipknot roots. I love it!!13/10 Your God- Pretty good song. Not my favorite, but thats just my opinion. 8.5/10 Though Glass- It is very overplayed, but I still think that it rocks. Really goes to show that Corey doesn't need to be screaming to sound good. 10/10 Socio- I hear a resemblence to Come What(ever)May, but it may just be me. Anyway, it's a great song and if you've liked the album so far, you should like it. 9.5/10 1st Person- Matches the rest of the album, and shouldn't be skipped. 8.999/10 Caradiff- I find this song as kind of a filler, just because it has nothing special to it. Not one of my favorites. 8/10 Zzyzx Rd.- Don't know if it's just me, but I love this song, and I think that its better than Though Glass. A wonderful way to end the album, and will make you want to listen to the album again.11/10

slipknot fans

they didnt leave slipknot-- they are part of both bands.. they did not sell out-- stone sour gives them a chance to expand and experiment as well as to delve into the introspective smoother parts of their musical talent-- i love slipknot, dont get me wrong, but a lot of these songs feel like vermillion pt 2 crossed with pulse of the maggots, and if you think vermillion pt 2 was "selling out" you can go bury your head in the sand-- stone sour is GOOD. find another outlet for your rage

Come What(ever) May

Most think that Through Glass is thier best song but I would have to say that Come What(ever) May is thier best and most interesting song. It has a lot of voice inflections and is a hard hitting powerful song. It is a must buy and anyone that likes metal or hard rock has to get it, one of the best songs I have ever heard.


Formed: 1992 in Des Moines, IA

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,...
