After listening to this album constantly for the last couple of days it's come clear to me that not only is this Stone Sour's best album, it's probably the best album I've ever listened too.
With a mixture of heavy metal, alternative and pop-style music, there is bound to be at least one song for everyone on this album. For those who expect this to sound like Slipknot, trust me it doesn't, despite the band's connection.
Every song on this track is great, the magic ingredient in the softer songs on this album is Corey Taylor's voice. Many other heavy metal vocalists wouldn't have been able to pull off the lighter tracks but Corey just makes each one an instant hit.
The best part of this album is the very beginning, listening to the dark and emotional track "Audio Secrecy" and then having "Mission Statement" kick in, beautiful.
