Yeah it's too bad these guys are easy targets for heavy dissing. They are very skilled musicians but all of their followers are poser emo punks. Living in Iowa I see it everywhere. Slipknot are unfortunate victims of an illegitimate militia of dorky dumbass middle-schoolers.

Yep, but the people who diss Slipknot and claim that they "aren't metal" just because of "their followers" are just as much posers as those they are claiming to be so. Using non-musical reasons as a reason for dissing a band's music, and giving it an inappropriate label due to that makes you a poser. The music and the music alone should be the factor in how it's judged. Those who allow other frivilous elements into that judging process are not real music fans.

As for this album, it has some great songs on it, but it's a tad patchy. Both the first album and Vol.3 are better albums than this one, but in it's best moments, "Iowa" is great in it's own right.

Rating: 8 Last night I gotta opportunity to spin "IOWA" and honestly, it sounds really good. Probably, will vary on the same boat as self titled did, I know I sounds pretty high atm but trust me, they just kick in some real Extreme Nu Metal stuff in( like Disasterpiece, People=Shit, Heretic Anthem, Iowa). Disappointingly, til yet we haven't heard anything "great" from there side. Still, a decent band to give it a listen atleast.

Rating: 5 People say that most people don't like slipknot because of there followers, but I don't like them because of there weak guitar riffs, drums, and there inability to write lyrics that make sense. Only reason I've listened to this and a couple of there other albums was because i use to know a lot of people that liked them.

Rating: 10 I'm sort of shocked that I would put this as a top 20 Metal album for me, but here I am. To think I used to really hate this band.

Me too. A band that produces a album with such quality souldn't have hate.

  Why shouldn't a band/album have hate if people don't like it? Quality is subjective after all.

The thing with bands like Slipknot is there's a group of people who hate them for dumb trve metal reasons, and there are plenty of people who just think the music sucks.

The issue is those two categories are merged a lot more than you'd think.

I really don't see any issue. Even with the people that hate them for the trve metal reasons. It's just as whack how the fans react and get overly defensive. I don't really see why people care that much. I feel like anyone who isn't insecure about liking them really wouldn't be bothered. That or they take other people's opinions too personally, which is among the dumbest things you can do online.

It's just annoying really. I'm perfectly fine if people hate Slipknot, no skin off my nose, but I'd rather have them hate the band simply because they don't like it rather than because they're "not trve metal/metal enough" which is a load of crock.

But, you're right. Opinions, opinions.

The great irony is a lot of people I've met who hate stuff like Slipknot for being "non-metal" love soft crap like symphonic metal. "Slipknot = crap cause they're not real metal and are really just shit mallcore that appeals to dumbarse jocks. Now let's crank some real metal like Nightwish or the new Helloween or the softest Anathema album in existence. "
