EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

stone sour

i have a few words to say, and here they are: this album rocks! even though corey taylor's vocals aren't as heavy as they were in slipknot and he doesn't scream as much, i'd still recommend buying it

Fantastic

This is one of my favorite c.d.'s, and like the description says, "I grows stronger with every repeat" or something close to that. Anyways that is a true statement, this album shows off Taylor’s ability to sing.

good album

Great album... Even though its the same singer from Slipknot, the lyrics are all different, and the arrangement of songs is new and exciting.
