4.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition to the catalog., October 26, 2012
This review is from: House of Gold & Bones Part One (Audio CD)
I bought Stone Sour's debut album when it first came out but sort of fell out of the loop with both them and Slipknot. But a few months ago I got back into things and got caught up. It was not long after that when we get the new single/s Gone and Absolute. The we got tempted even more with RU486 released just before the album dropped. So I have been looking forward to this release for a while. I must say overall it does not disappoint. I would not call it the best release of yet....for me it is the debut album. I would put HOG&B on par with Come What(ever) May, with maybe a slight nod more to that album, but that may just because it is more familiar to me at the moment. I will say that the last couple songs just seem to be lacking that little "oomph", and mostly why I am gigging a star (no it has nothing to do with liking slow vs. fast song). Most songs either have a good guitar hook (the intro to Gone Sov. for example) or play on Corey's vocals (Absolute or Rumor of Skin for example), and I guess for me the last couple songs didn't really put either out there. But this should not be taken to mean the last couple songs sucked. If they did I would be giving this 3 or 2 stars. Nope, bottom line is this is a pretty good album that will probably pull in the guys a bunch of awards and go multi platinum.
