Slipknot: All Hope Is Gone
0

Sound — 9
Slipknot has always made each album very different from the others, but at the same time; they keep their core sound. This album was no exception. With a mix of heavy songs (Dead Memories, Psychosocial), and acoustically driven songs (Snuff); Slipknot has mixed 2 styles to make a complete masterpiece.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics on "All Hope Is Gone," are impressive. From the apocalyptic title track to the emotional "Snuff," Corey Taylor really shows his lyrical talent. He also exhibits his range of vocals from soulful singing to low-pitched growls. The backing vocals on this album were amazing too, everyone seems to be able to come together to make a vocal masterpiece.

Overall Impression — 10
"All Hope is Gone" is altogether a great album, however those who are just starting to listen to Slipknot, this may not be the album to start with, it is a little more in-depth than their other albums. If you love Slipknot though, this is definitely an album worth buying.

    brilliant way to put it ,this album is a disgrace and an embarasment to people that have been listening to them for years .What happened to IOWA ? this album makes me ashamed to call myself a Slipknot fan or a Maggot .. this album depressed me .
