  1. Just when you think Audio Secrecy can get no more infuriating, you find the most overwrought of the ballads lodging their tunes inside the melodic part of your cranium.

There are still plenty of strong guitar riffs and loud hooks, but there are also heartfelt tracks such as "Say You'll Haunt Me", "Miracles" and "Imperfect" which allows Audio Secrecy to capture the band's wide emotional/atmospheric spectrum. It borders dangerously on generic early 2000s post-grunge sometimes, but it also proves that Stone Sour are a fine modern rock band with a lot of potential, which would be utilised in the House of Gold and Bones concept albums that would follow on from this.

    Stone Sour is basically Nickelback with Corey Taylor on vocals. The instrumentals and even Taylor at times, sound a lot like Nickelback. I'mStone Sour is basically Nickelback with Corey Taylor on vocals. The instrumentals and even Taylor at times, sound a lot like Nickelback. I'm not saying this album is bad, but it ain't good either. If you like heavy, brutal, in your face, chaotic music like Slipknot you will hate this album. If you like Nickelback and Creed then you will love this album. Full Review »

    Overall this is a good album with good production and good ideas, especially the guitars. Corey Taylor plays a proper role for the voice, though much less extreme than in Slipknot.
    You can not miss it.
