AI was pleasantly surprised by this album. I didn't espcially like Stone Sour in the past,and I've even stopped listening to metal in general for favour of Goth Rock. I first heard about this album with the track "Absolute Zero" on the radio a few months ago, and I fell in love with it. The album itself is knit together seamlessly and blends the heavier tracks with the softer, more emotional tracks perfectly. I don't usually think of modern music as being great, and I think the last great metal album was Lateralus by Tool, but I would actually consider this a truly great album as the members have very clearly grown as both musicians and artists. The packaging itself is worthy of mentioning. Apparently it is a puzzle you can complete with the second part when it is released. It does not include a lyris pamphlet (you can find the lyrics on the official site) but instead it includes the first half of the short-story version of the album. My personal favorite track on this album is "Tired," but every track is unique and memorable. I would highly recommend this album to any metal fan.
