    Ah!WTF went wrong here!?Slipknot has traded in their B.C Richs' for acustic guitars.The songs also have lost their intensity,and the "in your face" lyrics that were on IOWA and their ST.I was even more disapointed that this came from Rick Rubin of all people.Very disapointing...

    While it kept my interests for the first handful of songs i soon become disgusted with its accoustic garbage and nickelback-esque "soulful" lyrics. Not a valid purchase by any means.

    Better in terms of musical diversity yet it lacks the energy of the band's previous offerings.

    The monster-chomp guitars and semiauto percussion are still in effect, but somebody spilled a little Pantene in the Pantera. [Jul 2004, p.108]

    The basic Slipknot sound has improved. [#27, p.147]

    Plays out like a tepid, second-rate version of Iowa, which pretty much makes it a third-rate anything else. [Jul 2004, p.142]
