Sound — 10
This band's sound is always really cool because I don't know any other band that has 9 musicians! This album is very unique in it's sound and the solos are freakin crazy, especially becaus the 4 guitarists are collaborating so awesome! Great musical style!

The lyrics are powerful and say anything anyone has ever felt. The lyrics really show what drives Slipknot into thier desire to express themselves. No one can hate anything about the words. The lead singer screams very well, and occasionaly he'll sing, and he can actually sing very well!
Overall Impression — 10
This album is alot more calm than previous albums of Slipknot. I definently do not regret getting this album, I've listened to it everyday since I bought it! The best song by far is Vermilion! It's the best song in the world! "I won't let this build up inside of me...", I'm sure you've heard it. Other good tracks are "The Blister Exists" and "The Pulse Of The Maggots". Go buy it so you can see what I'm talkin about!
