As you know, this isa live album.The good thing about live albums is that they show an impression of the band that you wouldn't get from something recorded in a studio; you get to see (and hear) thier raw talent. In 9:0 Live, Slipknot do not dissapoint. They all prove that they can do everything that a fully mixed track could show. Great!

Corey Taylor proves to everybody that will buy this album that he can both sing, and quickly change his vocal style in a way that goes with everything else going on in the background. He gets the timing perfect almost all of the time. Now I get to a problem: the vocals can a lot of the time be hard to follow, and it can be hard to understand as well. The fact that most of the songs have a clear meaning makes up for that problem though.
Overall Impression — 9
the album has 2 discs, and a total of 24 tracks including Joey Jordison's amazing drum solo. The track cover their 3 major albums, and all fit in time. When I got this from the local music store, I listened to it 3 times in 2 days, and I still listen to it a lot. The fact with 9:0 Live is that it shows that: not only are Slipknot good in a studio, but they really shine in live performances as well. If you are a Maggot, get this if you havn't already. If you are a metal fan, get it. But if you want something new, try it, you might like it.
