I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Slipknot - Iowa [2001]

This was a fucking kick in the face coming from the self-titled album. Blasting on People=Shit was a shock to say the least. The production is the best (and heaviest) of the first three albums. A lot more good songs on this one, but less of the atmosphere from the first album. Probably the best album Slipknot has released to-date.

Rating: 7.5


All ratings are out of 10. Rating may not be a whole number.
