Slipknot's self titled should have been a 7 track EP.

1. 742617000027
2. (Sic)
3. Eyeless
4. Wait and Bleed
5. Surfacing
6. Me Inside
7. Diluted

Time 20 minutes

The rest of the album is pretty much throw away songs, if this EP were made it would be near perfect.

I like No Life and Only One. Liberate was an okay song as well.

I haven't listened to them in a long time.

Those are pretty much the worst songs minus Diluted. Purity, Scissors, and Prosthetics are the best songs on it.

If it did not have Prosthetics or Scissors I probably would have not gotten into this band as much as I had. The faster songs were cool but these slow builders are what made me a "maggot" those early years in life.

Those are best types of songs that they do, and they should have done it more often. I'm afraid their next album will be all faster paced and aggressive stuff. I'll probably like it, but it would be nice to hear some slower and darker stuff from them.

Gently (Iowa) remains my favorite song from the group. In fact that's still my fav album of the group, despite how fun some of the songs from their latest was. To me, Iowa and Untouchables were the best the genre of Nu-metal ever created.

Scissors in general I don't think is a great song but builds things so well that you really don't notice to well how bleh it is.

I like the people in this thread who dislike their songs more that the ones who like their (crappy) songs.

I really like Skin Ticket. I like how everything is pretty subdued until the end when it just opens up with the "Keeping myself alive through your empathy" (which, all these years, I thought he was saying apathy) Gently is a good one, though. It has a really nice build up. Flows really well to that point.

Scissors is my favorite song by them. I can see why some people may not like it but I've just always been a big fan of it. Although, it does go on a bit too long. Should have ended the song at around 5 minutes rather than have the 3 minutes of what they say was improvised. I've done a cover of the song before and I'll probably do another one with a different style at some point.

What is Purity. That hidden track at the end of Scissors?

No... "Purity" is track 9. Although I suppose you have the rereleased version... the original self-titled has 2 songs after "Tattered and Torn" called "Frail Limb Nursery" and "Purity". They were removed due to legal reasons. And they replaced them with "Me Inside"...

Since making this thread I've warmed up to Prosthetics.

Still don't really like Scissors that much though.

I can't get into this song mainly because it sounds like he says Liberate bananas

Which is part of the reason I didn't like Prosthetics because it sounded like he said I knew it was a Mustang.

Born of Osiris' first album was pretty short as well. Oh well. For some bands it just seems difficult to make a lot of material. My band has that problem atm, but we're working on it.

Shit is shit like said before but in all honesty the worst thing to happen to the band Is Corey Taylor

MFKR was decent for a nu-metal album but then dick bag took over and ruined it

oh and their self title was an ep, a 6 song one

best song from the album



sorry had to do it.

Corey Taylor was the best thing to happen to the band. MFKR is the worst thing they ever released. All of the rerecorded songs are much better than the MFKR versions.

Also, you say Corey Taylor is the worst thing to happen because of what happened with the self-titled... but only 3 members from MFKR were still in Slipknot when the self-titled was recorded. The MFKR lineup wrote most of the self-titled as well.

Its his vocals that ruin any slipknot album even being listenable, byour are a fan though so your perspective differs from mine but MFKR was far superior (which isnt saying much), Corey also takes credit for lyric he didnt write.

He did change the lyrics up a little... but I've never seen him take credit for Anders stuff.

Loxx, what do you think of Corey's reaction to Gray's death? Do you take sides with him saying it's too soon for a new record and stuff and possibly wanting to disband Slipknot?

About 2 years late on that one, brah. I would have been perfectly fine with Slipknot breaking up (aside from the fact that I have yet to see them live after being a fan for 13-14 years). It's been 4 years since All Hope Is Gone and they're recording a new one next year. I say that's a long break that they took and if they want to go for it, I'm ready to hear what they do. Paul was one of the guys that created the band, though, and was a huge driving force behind the band. Could be an interesting turn they take. I know Donnie Steele is doing bass for them live, but I wonder if they're even going to bother with bass parts on the new one.
