Product Description

Amazon.com

After validating every stripe of teen torment when working as masked members of Slipknot, vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root offer fans a chance to explore the sounds of their former, failed hard rock band, Stone Sour. Formed in 1992 and retired in 1997, Stone Sour played soulful, metallic hard rock in the vein of Alice in Chains, traces of which later appeared in looser, guitar-oriented Slipknot numbers like "Left Behind." The album opener, "Get Inside," and the snaky "Choose" kick with the agility of Pantera, while the mellower "Monolith" and "Blue Study" rely on Taylor's nasal vocals for emotional punch. Stone Sour probably wouldn't have made it out of Iowa in 2002 without the platinum pedigree of its erstwhile members; still, this is a respectable package of monster riffs and dynamic ideas. --Ian Christe

Customer Reviews

It's a good song other than that.

This is not just Corey Taylor's band, the music is really good too.

Corey sings and shows that he actually has a great voice.

Stone Sour's first, self-titled ablum is a hard-hitting collection of melodic to heavy rock. Revived by vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root of Slipknot (Stone Sour originally broke up prior to Slipknot's existence), Stone Sour has given Corey and Jim the opportunity to express themselves much more melodically than they would be able to do with Slipknot. This is especially true with the ballad "Bother".
Here are my ratings for each of the songs on their debut album:
1. "Get Inside" 5/5. Heaviest song on the album. Very heavy guitar and aggressive guttural vocals.
2. "Orchids" 5/5. Hard guitar, guttural to melodic vocals. Guttural chorus.
3. "Cold Reader" 5/5. Hard guitar, more melodic vocals. Melodic to guttural chorus.
4. "Blotter" 5/5. Starts with a silly answering machine message. Second heaviest song on the album. Heavy guitar and aggressive, guttural to melodic vocals. Melodic to guttural chorus.
5. "Choose" 4/5. Hard guitar, guttural vocal beginnnig giving way to more melodic vocals. Melodic to guttural chorus.
6. "Monolith" 5/5. Emotional hard guitar. Melodic & emotional vocals. Aggressive & emotional chorus.
7. "Inhale" 4/5. Starts with heavy guitar, giving way to soft vocals. Very melodic chorus.
8. "Bother" 4/5. Melodic ballad. Soft guitar, very melodic & emotional vocals. No percussion. String accompaniment and accoustic guitar.
9. "Blue Study" 3/5. Hard guitar, soft vocals, but aggressive chorus. (Like the chorus best.)
10. "Take a Number" 4/5. Softer to hard guitar, mix of soft to aggresive to heavy vocals.
11. "Idle Hands" 4/5.

Okay, I know that writing a review for a product on the day it comes out is not the smartest thing in the world, being that probably nobody will be able to read this review because of all the others that will be here at the same time, but I don't care. I can't take it anymore. I bought "Stone Sour" today and have already listened to it more than a dozen times. This album is AWESOME!
For those of you who don't know, the lead singer is Corey Taylor, that's right, the lead singer from Slipknot. And if any of you had doubts that the man can sing, you just listen to this CD and then decide for yourself. I know, people have been saying the man can't sing because he yells and screams all the time. I agree that most of the metal bands I listen to, the lead singer can never sing, hence the yelling and screaming. But Corey CAN sing, and does a great job.
Do not be fooled, this is NOT Slipknot, so don't go thinking that's what you're gonna get. The whole point of doing side projects is to do something different. Otherwise there's really no point, now is there? True, these guys are still heavy and Corey still yells and screams. But, the guitars are a little more mellowed-out, and the music isn't as fast-paced or as aggressive.
There was not one bad song I could find on this album. Every one of them is excellent. My favorites are as follows: get inside, orchids, blotter, monolith, bother, inhale, and choose. But, they're all great. "get inside" reminds me of "spit it out," being that Corey raps a little in this and it's fast paced. Other songs aren't as fast paced.
I was also amazed by the writing. There's some really great lyrics, and since there is more singing, you can understand them all without a problem. The lyrics are very emotionally-packed and well-constructed.

If you like the mellower moments of Slipknot, if you're closer to metal that's more regular than the heaviest hardcore, or if you even like hard rock ballads, Stone Sour'2002 is what you are looking for.
The only problem about the CD is you may expect, thanks to the couple of guys, something very similar to Iowa. You'll be unlucky in the case: you'll have a couple of moments when you feel the familiar sound, but the biggest part of the cd is a different sort of music. It's industrial, it's plain metal, it's sort of hardcore, and it's just... hard rock.
Whatever may disappoint you, overall the music is great, professionally written and played, and every track is amazingly original, refreshing, and reminds of some other musicians that skilfully vary their music through an album.
Bother is simply a beautiful thing, and... the strangest track on the CD, due to its pop-hard-rock-ballad-like type. The hit appreciated by millions anyway.
The faster tracks like Get Inside, Tumult, and Orchids, the slower ones like Idle Hands, Choose, and Blue Study, the differently styled Monolith, and Inhale, and the mysterious Omega, these are all parts of the same complicated but very pleaseful musical picture that's painted by undoubtedly talented guys named Stone Sour.
The good buy.

While mistakenly deemed as a side project of Slipknot alums Corey Taylor (vocalist) and Jim Root (guitar), Stone Sour (Des Moines, IA) actually existed prior to the aforementioned metal band, dating back to its inception in 1992. Co-founded by Taylor and drummer Joel Ekman, Stone Sour existed for five years, rounded out by Jim Root, guitarist Josh Rand and bassist Shawn Economaki, before Corey left the band in 1997 to join Slipknot, followed by Jim Root a year later. In the year 2000, fate intervened, eventually leading to the reuniting of the Stone Sour members who, after experimenting with different band names (Project X, Superego, Closure), settled on original moniker Stone Sour. On August 27, 2002, Stone Sour will release their S/T, Toby Wright-mixed (Korn, Alice In Chains) debut album through Roadrunner / Island Def Jam.
Emphatically pointing out that Stone Sour is not another side project or Slipknot clone, frontman/co-founder Corey Taylor goes on to describe the band as "old fashioned heavy rock." In general, this is a fairly accurate description as the music has more than its share of melodic moments and old school characteristics, not to mention your requisite metal aggression, though the heavy parts present are much more traditional than the chaotic fury usually associated in Slipknot songs. In fact, the aggressive sequences found, while retaining faint nu-metal traits and the occasional double-bass, possess a more conventional styling, hearkening back to the days of Pantera/Machine Head monster riffage, classic Metallica-inspired thrash guitars, vintage breakdowns, and even the rare guitar solo.
