Stone Sour - Come What(ever) May
Stone Sour's "Come What(ever) May" may as well be Slipknot's next album. Corey Taylor must have gone to great lengths to make this sound as much like Slipknot as possible. Whats even worse is that when this doesn't sound like Slipknot, it sounds strangely like "Filter" and "Mudvayne".
The only times when this album isn't a complete rip off of Slipknot are the songs "Sillyworld" and "Through Glass". "Sillyworld" sounds more like Marcy's Playground and "Through Glass" might be the first original thing to come out of Taylor's head since he thought up the name Slipknot. It doesn't seem like Stone Sour even tried to blossom into something other than a shameless Slipknot knock-off. I don't particularly hate Slipknot or this album, I just wish there was something original about this album besides a mainstream radio rock song. Even the names of the bands are similar.
I would go into extreme detail about what makes each and every song seem like the new and not so improved Slipknot, but I'm pretty sure you (the reader) can figure it out. So instead I'll give the one decent original song on "Come What(ever) May" a little taste of praise. "Through Glass" doesn't sound like Slipknot, It allows everyone to be heard over Taylor's shouting and Joel Ekman's drums that are cranked up way too loud, and it gave us a new song to hate listening to hundreds upon hundreds of times on the radio. Hopefully Taylor will stick to Slipknot and give more people the reason to quit their jobs and join an underground cult dedicated to going to every single concert in the world and start those stupid little ninja circles in the pit.
