I realize that what I like about them so much is Corey. I don't really ever find the music incredibly memorable or at least popping into my head that much. His voice is what I always hear and what makes me want to listen. When Corey changed styles, I completely wrote Slipknot off for a short while. Then once I accepted his change in vocal style, I began to like their music again. And he's always been one of my favorite vocalists. Generally, I'll give anything he touches a listen.

And I contribute that to part of the reason why I don't want to do vocals anymore. I don't mind hearing my own voice, and I like the lyrics that I write... I just never want to do it. Until I'm listening to Slipknot. Then I want to record vocals like that... but not write music like that.

Hhmmm.

Oh... and as an after thought, I guess that's why when Slipknot just changes their style musically (like All Hope Is Gone) I don't care.

Corey has quite a good voice. Thats the main reason I listen to Slipknot and Stone Sour. I wonder what Slipknot's next album will be lile. I'm sure Stone Sour's next album is going to be softer than the last.

Hhmmm, I'm just now seeing that Stone Sour has a new video. I remember a few months ago they release a song and I'm not sure if it had a title. I thought I remember that one being a bit heavier and uptempo. This song is really midpaced and mellow. That's pretty much what I expect from Stone Sour, though. They've got a few heavy songs on each album, with the rest being closer to ballad-like rock songs or just typical rock stuff.

It's kind of weird about Corey... I used to see a lot of people talking about how unique his voice was and he was one of the best parts about Slipknot even if they didn't like the music. Now I see people saying what a shitty vocalist he is. What gives? His voice is better now than it ever was... but he's somehow terrible and not unique anymore?

Speaking of slipknot and side projects and whatnot. Have you heard Dirty Little Rabbits? Evidentily it's Shawn (Clown)'s side project. It's pretty interesting I think.



It's more interesting to me than Stone Sour anyway.

I heard some songs from it years ago and couldn't stand it. And I can't stand that guy in general. Haven't listened to them recently.
