Yup. I found my Slipknot collection ranging from the 1996's till present (Since I already have All Hope Is Gone), and my word.
They don't sound boring.
And I think the guitars for the 2001 album - Slipknot - sounded so much more heavier than what the present album offers.
And Corey Taylor is still fuckin' insane.
Then I warmed things down by listening to Manhattan by Eric Johnson. The only thing I have in mind is to go home, sit down and just try and enjoy in catching up with Johnson's unique finger technique and notations. Heh.
