For me it's OK, but nothing great... cannot understand all the hype around it... nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing so moving...
It's still a good album tough, but also a bit overrated, imo

Stone Sour isn't really that interesting to begin with and if it took them 4 years to put out some mediocre release that's simply overhyped then they're quite the pointless unimportant band...simple riffs, overdone angst and over exposure sums up a band like that quite nicely...

actually, you're kind of right...
the only thing I would disagree is the time it took them... cause for the better part ot the 4 years most of them were busy, so they weren't writing an album or anything...

In the words of Ron White... "I like em [it]...I don't love it...I liiike it."

I'm a fan of them...but not because "their like totally heavy metal bro!!1!." It's for like when I'm tired and I wanna listen to some radio rock or something. Corey Taylor has a great voice [both metal and soft] and I'm glad he threw this project together to show his other side.

To me it accomplishes very much the same purpose as 'Hangover Music Vol. IV' by Black Label Society intended to.

Stone Sour's new album doesn't deserve its own thread.

I will admit that I do like Cory's vocals in Slipknot, but his soft vocals are nothing to write home about.

Also, that single of theirs, 30-30/150, is one of the most annoying songs I've heard in a long time.

I think it's better than their self-titled, but it has only 2-3 good songs.

I loved their debut album, but I didn't really like "Come What(Ever) May" that much at all. It sounded like they were trying to go mainstream with it, but failed. Some songs were good, I can't think of the names of them right now, but I did like a few songs.

It's a good CD, I think every Slipknot fan will like it, I think it's a bit slower than Slipknot but it's listenable...

Well, after posting this tread I havn't listened to it even once... It is actually pretty boring... there is more interesting music out there... Stone Sour do better then others only cause of the huge SlipKnot fanbase...

yes roy mayorga plays drums in it. this guy rulz! i liked the album. I even preferred it to the first one. it has some kind of more mature sound. I think it's almost stoner metal/hard rock. When a band goes softer it doesn't mean they are selling their souls to the mainstream.

they're pretty overrated. I admit that Corey Taylor can sing, and the drummer isn't bad, but if Corey was never in Slipknot then nobody would care about Stone Sour. A lot of the songs are annoying such as "Come What(Ever) May" and "Socio". Some songs are good and the band has the talent, but overall it's nothing special.

Supposively that is the only reason Stone Sour got any where period, because apperantly Stone Sour was music Corey created before he got into Slipknot and it wasn't good enough to get noticed, so he was finally able to release it once he got some recognition. I personally really dislike it.

I mentioned earlier that I hate it when artists put parentheses in their album/song titles....but I was thinking what it would be like if people talked like that on the computer. It would be (annoying).

Too slow then the previous self-titled release. (For my liking.) Only listened to "Come What(Ever) May" twice since I got it when it was first released. Where as I keep going back to the self-titled one..

Corey Taylor can sing, and I like to listen. Its nothing compared to their self titled release (even though I talked it up in another tread....but that was a mistake) but its certainly not the worst album I've encountered.

I don't like their new album, I do like the first one, but this one..... It's like the last release of Slipknot, I think that Stone Sour is begining to sound like Slipknot and Slipknot is begining to sound like Stone Sour, make them both sound bad... Just my opinion!

I don't have the new album, so I don't know. I've got the self titled album.

I fucking love this album.
From start to finish, one very lyrically and musically pleasing album.
It's chunky at the right times, however still melodic when needed.
Corey's vocals are too outstanding, the riffs hammer. I just love it.
I think that this album needs to be given more of a chance. People need to forget Corey is from Slipknot and listen to it with a non-biast ear. I think you'll find you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I like slipknot but I have a hard time getting into stone sour. The new cd is ok. I like the drummer. I'm pretty sure he used to be in soulfly.

Could not have said it better myself. I don't listen to them because of Slipknot, or because I wanna hear the next mind-blowing riff. I listen to them because sometimes I DON'T want to listen to that stuff. I want to sit back with a nice catchy, yet still edgy enough that I can stand it, album. Corey's voice is really the anchor point in this album, and some of the big choruses in the songs are very well constructed. So yeah, not a masterpiece, but better than average IMO.
