I like Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses). Good album. And just a few songs from their earlier albums.

They fell off the planet for me after Iowa... That Vol. 3 crap was garbage, and they pretty much developed into the same trendy band followed by mallrats around the world that they preached against when they first came out...

This last album was better than Vol. 3, but still not all that great...

I prefer my metal to take talented musicians... not gimmicky stuff that tends to run it's course...

Corey will always be one of my favorite hard style vocalists... and Joey Jordison is one of the best drummers ever... but I can't really say too much about the other guys... Mick and Jim are okay, but I lean more towards technical guitarists...

I've met Jim and took my picture with him way back in the day... back when they still tried to hide their faces... He was a super cool dude, and I wish nothing but the best for Slipknot (not like they haven't dominated the late teen circuit already)...

Really? I found Vol. 3 to be really good. It was fairly melodic with awesome riffs, the singing was really good, and the drumming was amazing. And it was mixed pretty well. Their other albums didn't even compare IMO. They sounded messy and all over the place.

And yes, I agree. Dream Theater ftw. Though their last two albums I didn't care too much for.

Iowa was their peak for me... very well produced album, and originality still in the songs...

Vol 3. didn't even have any cursing in it, and was catered to the emo kids that were gravitating towards their fanbase...

It was a smart thing from a business/marketing standpoint, but nothing will ever top songs like People = poo, Heretic Anthem, or even stuff like (sic) off the original album...

The original album was produced in a way that made it sound raw and chaotic... If I am not mistaken, it was Ross Robinson who produced that one, and he has some good stuff under his belt...

Yes, the fat ugly kids... if I remember Fred Durst's statement correctly..

This guy

From wikipedia

After Durst referred to Slipknot's fans as "fat ugly kids", Shawn Crahan, one of Slipknot's percussionists, threatened violence against him if he criticized their fans again, and Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor later said in an interview with MuchMusic that he saw Durst as a great businessman, but not as an artist. In a 2001 post on Limp Bizkit's website, Durst disputed the perceived ill will against Slipknot. He was quoted as writing, "We really like Slipknot and are very happy that they hate us, because it makes their music heavier, angrier and real!"[12] This quote angered Chris Fehn, one of Slipknot's other percussionists. Fehn later described Durst as being "...scared of us [slipknot]"

I agree. Vol.3 had a few respectable tracks, but too commercialized for what they did with Iowa.
