    The second storey of The House Of Bones story, is as excellent as its predecessor. [30 Mar 2013, p.53]

    While there is no denying that it's their charismatic frontman that sets them apart from most of their mainstream rock peers, Stone Sour are on blistering form here.

    The quality of the record is still on par with the first part, so anyone who enjoyed the previous record will certainly find more to love here.

    It's every bit as sprawling and dramatic as you'd expect from something set to be followed by a four-part comic book expanding on the story within the songs. [May 2013, p.86]

    This follow-up is a return to the dullsville rock of old. [May 2013, p.99]

    The epic conclusion, it has arrived.
    Stone Sour has become one of the leading bands of metal present. With the first part of House Of Gold &
    Bones settled in the forefront of the genre. Its interesting hybrid of hard rock, industrial metal, some alternative, modern sound and melodies earned them an important care and public and critics. House Of Gold & Bones, the first part of a long fascinated me, the second part again shows the greatness that can have while Stone Sour Corey Taylor by his story of the same name.
    Taylor is in his line, contrasting melodic and powerful guttural records that appear on-humans, and there choruses dazzle.
    It is an album recommended, especially for those who enjoy the first part, with this album, Stone Sour continue to maintain its position as fresh and original band.
    Getting the two parts of this album, you can build the house of gold & bones, one thing to note not buy my copy of the first part, in the opinion is a very good marketing technique, which makes it one of the albums more innovative and creative of the new era.
    Anyway this album, along with the first part, form a masterpiece, must buy their copies, because this album deserves to be recognized more than another today.

    I love Stone Sour and I loved House of Gold and Bones Part 1, and all their previous albums as well.
    That being said, I found Part 2 not to
    my liking. Other may love it, others may not, me being the later.
    Do me a favor is a great song but that's probably the only song I enjoyed from this album.
    Check out the tracks before buying to see if it's what you're into.
