First solid album since Vol. 3
Slipknot has had quite the journey up to this point. Their last two albums, while having a handful of songs that are on par with the band’s potential, stumbled heavily and the results were a far cry from what they’re capable me of.
I got excited when I heard All Out Life last year. Then Unsainted came out during a time where the lyrics mirrored what I was going through personally at the time. And then they released Solway Firth, a song that I cannot stop listening to. For me, this is their best song ever. It stands head and shoulders above everything else they’ve written. Just a great song and a great ending to a great album.

Not the band I remember
While I enjoy the heaviness and aggression Slipknot maintains. There’s just something a little off when they try to go too much in that “Pink Floyd” direction.

Please quit slipnot. This album is worse than Tools and Corns.
Old but new
By The Eclipse Of Luna
This is good stuff. It sounds like their old music, but with a little bit of new sounds. It’s good but I have to admit, not as good as their older stuff. Don’t get me wrong, this is their best album since Vol.3, there was a few good songs in between then, but I can only think of 4 without hearing the song (Psycosocial, sulfur, The devil in I, and Snuff), but all the songs on here are great, it’s easy to listen to the whole album without skipping one or two songs to get to the next good one! Makes me hopeful for the next album they release

Heard these guys live at the Knotfest Roadshow in San Bernardino and had a blast! Slipknot still knows how to bring it :)
This to me is the best of all time... judge me, but I don’t care. This is the best yet! Especially Solway Firth!
Since Vol. 3 I feel Slipknot has found the path to groove. And this album is pure groove. It's heavy, angry, inspriring and just a trip. It's F'ing good album.

This was probably one of the most anticipated albums of the year and it was worth the wait!
It’s not traditional Slipknot, but that’s what makes it Slipknot. So experimental and shows how much potential the band still has. Corey’s vocals are INSANE! Ever since he stopped smoking his screams and singing have gotten SO much better. Over all, I love it.
