Oh my God!! If you're a Slipknot fan, this CD is definitly something you people should buy!!!
I bought this CD a couple months ago and it's one of the best albums ever! Though, I gave only 4 stars because I wasn't too happy with the acoustic songs, I found them too slow for Slipknot.
My favourite songs on the album were definitly
- The Opium of the People
- Pulse of the Maggots
- The Nameless
(and it I'm in the mood for softer music)
- Danger, Keep Away
The lyrics in the songs were very well writen, "The Virus of Life" has fairly creepy lyrics like 'I can see you but you can't see me' and 'It's unbearable, it's almost worse for me
I'm gonna to tear you apart and make you see'. I loved the lyrics for "Vermillion Part 2" with lyrics like 'She is everything to me, The unrequited dream, A song that no one sings, The unattainable' which seem to have a lot of meaning. I especially loved the lyrics to "The Nameless" with parts like 'Obsession, take another look. Remember, every chance you took. Decide, either live with me, Or give up - any thought you had of being free'.
To top in all off, the songs were very awesome! Talk about 'ear candy', almost all of the songs on here are so creative, and the fact some of the songs can be a totally screaming competion and then turn into complete harmony and then switch to eerie whispers and rap which is actually good!
Personally, I think this album is one of the best ones I've heard though I would of gave the 5 stars if they didn't have the accoustic songs, I felt it was a major turn off. But, please, if you are a die-hard Slipknot fan, you should buy this!!
