In addition to the Grammy nominated album that features the hit single "Through Glass," the special package features 6 bonus tracks on the CD. The package also contains a DVD that includes all of Stone Sour's music videos and live footage from the band's performance in Moscow in the Fall of 2006.
"Through Glass" continues Stone Sours melodic tradition with another slow-burner, this time its uptempo and steered in a pop direction." -- Billboard Magazine

This special edition also includes 5 bonus tracks not on the regular version of the album. The highlight of these is the excellent acoustic cover of Wicked Game. There is also a DVD included which has the videos from the album and a full concert performed in Moscow. The DVD does a great job of capturing the energy of their live show and includes most of the hits from their first two albums (the biggest exclusion in my opinion being Sillyworld) along with several other tracks which sound great live.
If you've become a fan of the band recently because of their latest album, Come What(ever) May is definitely worth going back to pick up and this is the version to buy. Even if you already own the regular version of this album, the DVD is good enough to justify buying again.
Unlike quite a few bands that have been releasing some subpar albums lately this one was solid all the way through. It lacks a lot of the heaviness found in the first almbum, but makes up for it with wonderful instrumental, lyrics, and more melodic vocalizations. The heaviness can still be found in the tracks, Reborn and 30/30 150 come to mind as well as Hell and Consequences.
The track listing is in a decent order, with 30/30 150, Come What(ever) May, and Hell and Consequences topping the list and providing some excellent head bang material, then dropping into sillyworld, for a slower experience (I have to make a note here that in some major reviews I have read the reviewers have commented that this song sounds like Pink Floyd. I am a fan of Pink Floyd and personally don't hear it, but it is still a good song, and one of the best on the album as well.). From sillyworld you are warmed up with Made of Scars, damn good lyrics, but not as heavy as the other songs, it leads into another highpoint of the album, 'Reborn', reminiscent of the original album and to a lesser extent Slipknot towards the end, it is quite possibly the heaviest on the album, and one of the best. From there we move on to Your God, then Through Glass, which takes the same space as bother from the first album and just like bother fails to dissapoint. Then comes Socio (one of my favorites from the album), 1st Person, and Cardiff, and Zzyxx wraps up the CD nicely with its ballad-esque vocals and instrumental, and some of the best lyrics found on the album.
If you are a Stone Sour fan you will love this album, however it may be a hit or miss for the Slipknot fans. I truly enjoyed the album, solid from beginning to end with very little in the way of low points. I give it 5 stars, no less than what it deserves.

Not sure why this is, I can't imagine any bands having issue with people listening to their music on the go so I'm not sure whether it has some weird protection on it or if it's an issue with WMP, never had it crash from trying to rip a CD before, but be warned MP3 users, get the MP3 download instead on this one.
anyway... i really wasnt expecting a new album from them, as slipknot seem to be the bands favorite alias, but come on, could you really see the masked frankly scary metal gods belting out 'through the glass'? funny as it would be, no.(Amazing video for that song!)
the albums actually pretty good, but not quite as good as their first. its nowhere near as rocky, and i think the band are doing their metal stuff with slipknot and saving the soft rock for stone sour. still good though. i love these guys!
the best tracks are '30/30 150' 'through the glass'(Im just in love with this song!) and 'reborn' buy it!
DVD is a good quality with music so good im keeping a very close eye on stone sours tour dates!
the 6 extra tracks are good..not great, but still good, my favourite tracks are still come what(ever) may and 30/30 150.
one of my concerns (before buying) was with the DVD regions, I thought that since it was an import I may have trouble using it if my DVD player doesnt like it due to the region being different, however this concern appears to be unfounded, so if you were worrying about that, DON'T! go ahead and buy it as it will work.
overall, a fantastic metal album, heavy yet lyrical with some choice screams, great in car music.
