Genre: HEAVY METAL
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

A MUST BUY, FOR ALL MAGGOTS!!
For all you guys who bought the first album, don't worry; the CD is not just the original with some "Thank you" letter by the band. The CD contains 15 original tracks from the first album (including Purity), the re-released track "Me Inside" when Purity was removed, Get This, both "Spit it Out" remixes ("Stamp You Out" and "Hyper"), (sic) mole injected remix, Wait and Bleed Terry Date mix, and four demos (Wait and Bleed, Snap, Interloper, and Despise). The original album recieves 5 stars on its own, the best songs being Spit it Out, Wait and Bleed, Surfacing, (sic), and Eeyore. The remixes are interesting, seeing what someone else could do with the song, and the demos are awesome while you can see how they sounded like in their younger years. The only problem with the CD is that Frail Limb Nursery is not on the album. This track was removed along with Purity, but while Purity got re-released, Frail Limb Nursery some how never appeared. I don't know why, I thought the 10 year anniversary would include every single song, but the song is only less than a minute, so it's very easy to forget about. All in all, 10/10.
The CD also includes a DVD, which is actually two movies in one, plus four music videos. Of the (Sic) is the first movie, which is a documentary of the band with a commentary by Shawn "Clown" Crahan. The film is very interesting and shows how the band was like back in 1999-2000. I'd give it a 8/10. (Warning: The opening is a one minute scene of a bandmate throwing up. If you have an uneasy stomach, skip through this part). The second movie is a whole entire live show of the band in Dynamo 2000. The show plays 7426, (sic), Eyeless, Wait and Bleed, No Life, Liberate, Purity, Prosthetics, Spit it Out, Get This, and Surfacing. The concert is pretty good (it's no Disasterpieces though), and the band seems to know what they're doing, the crowd seems extremely pumped, and it's definetly a good movie for all of the Maggots out there. I think it disserves a 9/10. Lastly, there are all four music videos: Spit it Out, the original and claymation version of Wait and Bleed, and the ultra rare music video for Surfacing. Spit it Out consists of the band playing the song, while it also contains shots of the band parodying "The Shining". Wait and Bleed's orginal video consists of live footage of the band playing the song, but with a music dub of the Terry Date mix. The claymation Wait and Bleed shows a man creating clay Slipknot figures, but they come to life and attack the man. Surfacing is a live show of the band playing, being similar to Wait and Bleed (it's probably the same show), but instead it actually plays the live song, showing you how it sounds live. The music videos are great and deserve a 10/10. The DVD is an average of 9/10.
To conclude, Slipknot 10 Year Anniversary is a great album and a must have for any Slipknot fan. If yoou just got interested in the band, this is the right CD for you. 10/10
