Slipknot Shouldn't Be This Good

I always thought I was genetically programmed not to like Slipknot. I thought they were for kids, all gimmick and, believe it or not, too noisy. I saw them in Birmingham coheadlining with Slayer (I went to see slayer) a few years ago. As preparation I bought Vol.3: The Subliminal Verses and really got into it, especially Duality, but it was pretty much a passing phase, although they were very good with Slayer and I still enjoy listening to the album.

A few weeks ago their third album, All Hope Is Gone, came out. It's incredible. A real step forward in maturity and musicianship (yes, I am talking about Slipknot). Not only that, but I really like the songs. Who'd have thought they'd use acoustic guitars and harmonies. It's just shame their London shows have sold out already...
