I think the reason I enjoy Slipknot is the same as why I always look at the five car pile-up accident on the freeway. For some reason, they have the same entertainment value for me. They wear fright masks and wield their instruments like chainsaws, and I can’t NOT look.
Their new live album is a good value for their fans. What it lacks in production value it makes up for in sheer energy. The percussion is about the best I have ever heard on a live album. The vocals, however, suffer due to the fact that Corey sounds like, …ummm… he is singing while wearing a MASK!
Gee, I wonder why the studio vocals don’t sound that way? Hmmmm.
