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

I'm 24 now and have been a huge Slipknot fan when they 1st came out 10 years ago with this cd. This is actually the 4th time i've bought this disk (the 1st two versions one with 'purity", the other with "me inside", and then the digipak version) and this is hands down the one to own, if you don't own a version already. To those wondering if it's worth getting all over again, I will tell you YES! 1st off for me, I had let someone borrow my copy with Purity on it a couple years back and i never got it back from them, so for that song alone, im pretty happy. You also get their entire demo pretty much and the demo version of "wait and bleed" is really cool to listen to with the variation of vocals by the then younger Corey Taylor. The disk is 25 tracks long, with the original only being 14/15 counting "eeyore". Also to let it be known, you don't have to listen to minutes of silence and everyone throwing up before you get to eeyore. It's now a separate track, minus the long intro which is awesome. Now the DVD: (sic)!!! Comes with what felt like an hour long video of behind the scenes and rare concert footage. Look a Corey's hair back in the day, pretty damn funny and i'm sure even he gets a kick out of that. Also Joey Jordison IS the best drummer alive (my educated opinion). Also you get the videos "spit it out", "wait and bleed", and the animated version of wait and bleed. The illest part is the full concert, which i would have paid the whole price for alone. Like i said, it's like im 14 all over again, even though I kept the original release in heavy rotation it's nice to have the whole package. If you're half a Slipknot fan, you're reading this agreeing with me and if not, then you need to get on the wagon. Here's to the next 10 years and the killer live shows that bring this songs to life!! Stay (sic)....Chris W.

Slipknot is, well, they are real. These 9 guys from Iowa are as scarry or as real as they can get. I don't mean their disturbingly creepy/cool masks, I mean their music. The lyrics that the absolutely amazing vocalist Corey Taylor('8' as his band ID suggests) sings out from behind that mask only make sense in this truly diluted world. With every single word the listener can hear his pain. In 'Scissors' he goes into a sort of trance of insanity where he seems to cry and laugh maniacly at the same time while singing "life,time" over and over again. With every single one of those we feel like he is really hurting. And this is something only a few bands can do (or have done in case of KoRn-they still have a chance people! ). The two percussionists 6-Shawn and 3-Chris are absolutely amazing and original. Same with 1-Joey. Every member of this incredible band is 101 percent with the music, everyone knows their instrument. They even have 0-Sid, a DJ who kicks some major MTV DJ Scribble ass. Now how often do you see that in a metal band. The tag team of guitars coming out of 4-James and 7-Mick are really vivid and it really shows that these guys are on their game. Let's not forget the pig masked 2-Paul and 5-Craig. Paul makes some nice sounds come out of his piece and Craig does an incredible job of putting out some creepy sounds. This band is definetly original and the sound they bring out makes you want to go truly nuts. My favorite songs on this CD are the ones where Corey actually sings and the way he can switch between the screaming out loud death sound to a pain filled melody is incredible. This would be 'Wait and Bleed, Me Inside, Prosthetics, Dilutedm, and Scissors.'. But the CD's best is Me Inside.Read more ›

And again. It's me. Writing another review.

742617000027 - 0/5 - Pointless honestly. All it shows is Craig's sampling skills. Which are good but we're talking about the song, not the person.

(sic) - 4/5 - The only thing I have to say about this song is (sic).

Eyeless - 4/5 - Interesting chorus. Particularly interesting due to the fact that some homeless guy said it. Goes to show that the most random things make good songs. I'm not saying take this approach when writing songs, it worked for this song. I like the middle where it slowed down slightly with Corey's screeching.

Wait & Bleed - 5/5 - Great lyrics. Amazing vocals. Corey never seems to dissapoint me with his voice. It's either growling out vulgarities to prove a point or pumping out heart-felt emotions in the form of the voice of an angel.

Spit It Out - 5/5 - I like the rap/growl type dealie he does. It's very suiting for this song. The song has a great riff and the beginning with the growls is just awesome. The end of this song also leaves you wanting to listen to it over and over again.

Tattered & Torn - 3/5 - I liked the MFKR version so much better. Even though Corey's vocals are so much hotter than Anders' are. Anywho. On with the show...

Frail Limb Nursery - 5/5 - If you don't understand why I jsut gave this sample dealie a 5, read on. It comes right before the song Purity, and it just adds on to the sickness behind the whole Purity story and why Corey wrote about it. Which leads me to the next song...

Purity - 5/5 - Heart-felt lyrics with a dollop of Slipknot. It's a really sad story. If you read up on it and then listen to this song, you'll feel more emotional towards it.

Liberate - 5/5 - Overall great song.
