The album cover of this self-titled release depicts the members of Slipknot in creepy masks, the dark image confirmed by the presence of a parental advisory sticker. Inside, foul language and subversive lyrics complete the picture. Yet Slipknot are no Insane Clown Posse, using hyperbole to mask a lack of talent. Slipknot's sound, while indebted to the likes of Korn, is more aggressive and creative. Indeed, it's a closer kin to Slayer and death metal, yet listenable and surprisingly melodic. The common denominator among Slipknot and the late '90s crop of neo-metal-rap bands is producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Limp Bizkit), who discovered the Iowa-bred Slipknot and signed them to his label, I Am Records. His stellar production, melded with wonderfully creepy percussive elements, a sampler, a DJ, metallic-grind guitars, and singer Corey Taylor's immense passion and wide melodic range, makes Slipknot immensely listenable. Slipknot isn't for everyone, but they provide a visceral and satisfying ride for fans of the hard stuff. --Katherine Turman

1-742617000027 (3/5) as far as intro tracks go, i like the way it leads up to (sic). And for your info, the words are "the whole thing i think is SIC" , not S**T.
2-(sic) (5/5) great song! It really shows joey's speed on the double kick!
3- Eyel Ess (5/5) Aparently inspired by a crazy person heard chanting "you can't see california without Marlon Brando's eyes" Great track!
4- Wait and Bleed (4.5/5) Nice to hear some singing. vocal contast!
5- Surfacing (4.5/5) good song. more sick kick from Joey!
6- Spit it Out (5/5) Makes you want to headbang!
7-Tattered and Torn- (4/5)a bit strange, but different. I personally have no problem with the remakes. I think some of them are better, and considering how difficult it is to get your hands on the old ones, i have no problem.
8- Me Inside (5/5) When I first heard this song, i thought it was from one of the newer albums due to the melodious singing! Great track! Corey actually has a decent voice, later developed in later albums.
9- Liberate (4/5) good track. bit laggy in the middle.
10- Prosthetics (4/5) Erie tune, but still cool.Read more ›

Them waring masks is also cool. There masks are very cool. Why do people complain about there masks anyway. They say that they don't like the music because of them wearing masks. What does that have to do with there music.
The only thing thats a little bad about the songs is that there too short. Only 2 or 3 minutes long.(Most of the good ones)

Their best album. Buy it and ignore all those person who will tell you that it sucks. It's popular for a reason, it's ORIGINAL. It is not metal because it is art. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
