Best Slipknot Album Ever Posted by: from: Oakland, CA on I have been a Slipknot fan for a long time, hearing every album, unreleased tracks, live concerts, etc. This album from start to finish is a complete masterpiece. Tracks like"Sarcastrophe", "AOV", Skeptic", and "Custer" offer heavy hitting classic Slipknot fans that were die-hard from the early days. Songs like "The Devil In I", "Nomadic", and "The One That Kills The Least" are the more melodic songs, yet stick pack a good punch. The guitars and bass work is amazing, catchy and never dull. The drum and percussion are adapted well to all the moods and settings. The vocals may not be the most impressive of Slipknot's or Corey Taylor's career, but the work flawlessly and nothing in the lyrics or vocal choices are anything less of amazing. Definitely a must buy for any Slipknot fan, and other metal, hard-rock listeners. Perhaps not the best album for those being introduce to the band, but it's certainly worth the listen and the purchase.

Great Record Posted by: from: on This album is amazing considering they lost two key songwriters. Just proves how valuable the rest of the band is.

Slipknot Posted by: from: EAST COAST LONG ISLAND on As expected, ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ heavily references Gray and the emotions the band went through in the wake of his passing. Beginning on the album opening ‘XIX,’ frontman Corey Taylor references, “I don’t want to get back up, but it might as well be today.” The song itself builds in intensity and like other passages on the disc, the heaviness of the music often matches the depth of the emotion.

Slipknot you know is gone... Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on But it's not all bad. I knew (as anyone most likely) going in that they were making different kind of album and it shows all the way through. Sure they have some heavier parts, but in grand scheme of things it feels like they calmed down a little and lowered their voices. Instead of being heard for being loud and reckless, they are more deliberate on this album. Pace slows down to near stop at times, but picks up shortly after, to ensure we keep on moving and don't get lulled by false sense of safety. Whole album is a tribute to dead band member and as such it is a perfect memento and send off. I couldn't have asked for better one myself. I do love the old Slipknot and will foverer. New one not so much, but I get it and can appreciate they have all grown up. It might not strike a chord with everyone, so I recommend going on Itunes and listening to samples first.

On the downslide Posted by: from: on Slipknot isnt Slipknot anymore and you cant tell either success, in band fighting, death, members leaving have left this band void of the energy and pure excitement that used to make this band a good one. The songs are lifeless and makes you often wonder why they actually need 9 guys in the band because at least 5 dont do anything especially on this record..

Good, but not quite what it could have been Posted by: from: on Slipknot's latest album finds the band regrouping after the death of long-time bassist Paul Gray and the departure of percussionist Joey Jordison (by all accounts, the driving force behind the 'Knot's intense rhythm section). Touted as a combination of the more aggressive sound of s/t & Iowa with the maturity and advancements of Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses & All Hope Is Gone, .5: The Gray Chapter delivers to some extent by coming forcefully out of the gates on many tracks and the signature drumming that we've come to expect from these guys. However, while I'm glad to hear a bit more energy after the last album (which many argue featured a few too many songs that sounded like Stone Sour cast-offs), it seems as if they've taken up a step back from a musical and lyrical standpoint. The lyrics read like the diary of an angsty teenager, and the music doesn't offer any surprise the way the last albums did. Overall, all things considered, this is a good effort, but I guess we'll have to wait another 5 years or so before we can find out if the band is truly capable of delivering on the unfulfilled promise that it made for this album.
