Editorial Reviews

House of Gold & Bones is a two part concept album that follows a story written by singer Corey Taylor. It is a multimedia experience with 24 songs, innovative packaging, new media scavenger hunts and a 4 part comic book series. The story kicked off with the Top 10 debut of Part 1. Part 1 spawned the #1 rock track "Absolute Zero" and has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies. Part 2 concludes the epic story and is led by the first single and video "Do Me A Favor. "

Chances are, you're already a fan of HoGaB Pt. 1 if you're reading this review. I can tell you for certain that this album goes above and beyond the already amazing beginning to this story. As a whole, double concept albums have not held a great reputation. Corey Tayor and Co. have in my opinion set new standards to how a dual album should pan out.

Starting with the intense build-up of "Red City", this track without a doubt sets the tone for the rest of the album. Yes it is darker, however you're always able to see the silver lining in the clouds and hope within.

"Black John" is a song about one of the antagonists of the story. Its an excellent track with some amazing drumming and of course the catchy chorus Stone Sour almost always delivers.

"Sadist" is one of the darker, yet not heavier, tracks on the album. Amazing singing by Corey, you can feel the emotion he is portraying from the point of view from the protagonist of the story.

"Peckinpah" is definitely a stand-out track to me. The build-up to the chorus is absolutely intense!! The blast beats of the drums mixed with Mr. Taylor's aggressive vocals that deliver us into a clean and emotional chorus blow me away every time I hear it.

"Stalemate" to me compares with the likes of the tune "Tired" from part one. It most definitely sounds to me like the most radio-friendly song on the album. Its not to say that its a bad song by any means, but it probably stands out the least of all the others to me.

"Gravesend" sounds like old Stone Sour in the fact of its sheer heaviness and dark undertones. This probably has to be the darkest songs on the album. The lyrics are what makes it though. The story alone in this song alone tells us the battle of good and evil our protagonist faces.

Corey Taylor is my favorite voice in rock music, and I'm a fan of both Slipknot and Stone Sour. Taylor is one of those artists who sounds even better live than recorded, a pretty big feat these days. I saw Stone Sour at the beginning of the House of Gold & Bones Part 1 tour and anxiously awaited the release of the Part 2 album.

A few thoughts...

First of all, I actually don't like extended screaming/bellowing in music. I know, this is Corey f'ing Taylor we're talking about here. You don't need to remind me of that. Normally I just avoid songs that irritate me. That said, I adore Red City--right up until the moment Corey starts bellowing. That kills my enjoyment of the song and I have to move on to the next track. Corey has such a genuinely talented singing voice, I don't understand why the bellowing is necessary.

I was a little torn about The House of Gold and Bones. It's very reminiscent of Gone Sovereign & Absolute Zero (from HoGAB p1) and at times the melody made me lose track of which song I was listening to. Once I got past that and became more familiar with the song, I love it. It really sums up these two albums.

The album overall takes a bit of a mournful tone. There are a couple songs that sound downright morose. In a way, I feel like this album is lacking some of the energy of previous Stone Sour albums--there are several upbeat songs, to be sure, but the mournful tone found throughout the album brings it down a notch. It doesn't bother me as much as it did on first listen, though.

I am really impressed with the way the songs flow into one another. This level of continuity is a rare treat, and it's one of my favorite things about this album. Another favorite is the melodies--they are flowing, evocative, and really well written. I love the piano presence in the music.

Overall, the album has a couple low points for me, but it's a definite win in my book.

I have only discovered Stone Sour a couple years ago when I heard their single "Say You'll Haunt Me" on the radio and I enjoyed it. I looked into them and have enjoyed many of their songs since. More recently I purchased HoGaB pt. 1 and compeletly enjoyed it, great hooks, great lyrics, and terrific instrumentation on thatr record. This half lives up to the anticipation thrust upon it after a brilliant part 1. It is darker, doesn't quite have the diversity that the first record has but it has much heavier, catchier riffs and more difficult instrumentation and in my opinion, more compelling lyrics to end the series of two. I shall now do a song by song review with a few words describing my decision.

1. "Red City" 9/10 - A dark ballad to begin the record, it really is a beautifully twisted song, the lyrics are brilliant but lacks a distinct melody which might upset fans but I think it's a terrific song.

2. "Black John" 10/10 - Such a catchy verse, the classic cymbal/bass beat creates this almost dance-like song. The lyrics are compelling, the guitar riff is infectious, one of the highlights of the record.

3. "Sadist" 10/10 - The longest song on the record clocking in at just over five minutes, the lyrics are brilliant, a slower song but nevertheless incredible.I particularly love the chorus, it's just darkly intelligent.

4. "Peckinpah" 10/10 - Another incredibly dark and heavy song but it succeeds with terrific lyrics, the chorus is heavy and epic, I just love this song for what it is. The riff in the bridge is just fantastic, simplistic but effective, the guitar solo is mind-bending, I love it.

5. "Stalemate" 10/10 - This is a song that would have worked well on the first part, an acoustic intro and a heavy metal riff follows.
