Sound — 10
Who couldn't like this album? It has awesome sound with great guitar solos. You could build up excitement in one song and then have a complete rush when the next song comes. If you like heavy metal but don't like Slipknot, then you might as well listen to something else because you could define heavy metal whith these guys.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are easy to understand and they flow. If you try to listen you can make out pretty much every word. The songs like Before I Forget are awesome with the screams. They don't sound high pitch and like crap that you hear in some other bands.
Overall Impression — 10
When I first heard the name Slipknot, I thought of some sadistic guys yelling at the top of their lungs and sound like crap. But then I heard them on the radio and I couldn't believe how good they sounded. Duality, Opium Of The People, Pulse Of The Maggots, and Before I Forget are definitly the best songs on the CD. You can't hate this CD or the band. I give it the best rate I possibly can.
