Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Aggresive but real April 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Slipknot is, well, they are real. These 9 guys from Iowa are as scarry or as real as they can get. I don't mean their disturbingly creepy/cool masks, I mean their music. The lyrics that the absolutely amazing vocalist Corey Taylor('8' as his band ID suggests) sings out from behind that mask only make sense in this truly diluted world. With every single word the listener can hear his pain. In 'Scissors' he goes into a sort of trance of insanity where he seems to cry and laugh maniacly at the same time while singing "life,time" over and over again. With every single one of those we feel like he is really hurting. And this is something only a few bands can do (or have done in case of KoRn-they still have a chance people! ). The two percussionists 6-Shawn and 3-Chris are absolutely amazing and original. Same with 1-Joey. Every member of this incredible band is 101 percent with the music, everyone knows their instrument. They even have 0-Sid, a DJ who kicks some major MTV DJ Scribble ass. Now how often do you see that in a metal band. The tag team of guitars coming out of 4-James and 7-Mick are really vivid and it really shows that these guys are on their game. Let's not forget the pig masked 2-Paul and 5-Craig. Paul makes some nice sounds come out of his piece and Craig does an incredible job of putting out some creepy sounds. This band is definetly original and the sound they bring out makes you want to go truly nuts. My favorite songs on this CD are the ones where Corey actually sings and the way he can switch between the screaming out loud death sound to a pain filled melody is incredible. This would be 'Wait and Bleed, Me Inside, Prosthetics, Dilutedm, and Scissors.'. But the CD's best is Me Inside. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Like I'm 14 again September 8, 2009
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
I'm 24 now and have been a huge Slipknot fan when they 1st came out 10 years ago with this cd. This is actually the 4th time i've bought this disk (the 1st two versions one with 'purity", the other with "me inside", and then the digipak version) and this is hands down the one to own, if you don't own a version already. To those wondering if it's worth getting all over again, I will tell you YES! 1st off for me, I had let someone borrow my copy with Purity on it a couple years back and i never got it back from them, so for that song alone, im pretty happy. You also get their entire demo pretty much and the demo version of "wait and bleed" is really cool to listen to with the variation of vocals by the then younger Corey Taylor. The disk is 25 tracks long, with the original only being 14/15 counting "eeyore". Also to let it be known, you don't have to listen to minutes of silence and everyone throwing up before you get to eeyore. It's now a separate track, minus the long intro which is awesome. Now the DVD: (sic)!!! Comes with what felt like an hour long video of behind the scenes and rare concert footage. Look a Corey's hair back in the day, pretty damn funny and i'm sure even he gets a kick out of that. Also Joey Jordison IS the best drummer alive (my educated opinion). Also you get the videos "spit it out", "wait and bleed", and the animated version of wait and bleed. The illest part is the full concert, which i would have paid the whole price for alone. Like i said, it's like im 14 all over again, even though I kept the original release in heavy rotation it's nice to have the whole package. If you're half a Slipknot fan, you're reading this agreeing with me and if not, then you need to get on the wagon. Here's to the next 10 years and the killer live shows that bring this songs to life!! Stay (sic)....Chris W.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not half as bad as it's made out to be January 20, 2005
By Tom Z
Format:Audio CD
I like this album. No, that dosen't mean I need a lecture on what good music is or a list of death and black metal bands that are heavier or darker. Chances are whatever you could recommend is probably already sitting next to this Slipknot album in my cd case right now. I'm not here to say Slipknot is the greatest, heaviest band in the world or anything like that, but I do think this album is far better than people give it credit for.

With this release Slipknot manage to blend elements of Thrash and Industrial into the typically stoic nu-metal style to make what is, in my estimation, a pretty good album. The riffs are heavy and aggressive, not the most technical playing you'll ever hear but it fits the overall sound well. Joey Jordinson is probably the highlight of this band, his skill level is top tier. There are quite a few better drummers than him but he does have substantial talent. Corey Taylor isn't what I would count as an amazing vocalist, but he has heart and intensity, which he gets by on. This album isn't without it's faults but everyone else has pretty much covered that so I won't go into great detail on the matter. Turntables, Simple Progressions and a somewhat cheesy theme and appearence are basically the key points of the problems.

Overall, this is far from the best album in the world but it's not terrible either. I am of the belief that Black and Death Metal are superior to Slipknot, however Slipknot is a great 1st step into the realm of extreme metal and toward those genres.
