Come What (Ever) May [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Megan Frye
What sets Stone Sour apart from others of their breed is the band's ability to create smooth, radio-friendly alternative metal songs while simultaneously not boring the people who have heard way too much from post-grunge groups. The secret to this lies in guitarist James Root's unique style and drummer Roy Mayorga's unyielding intensity. Root and singer Corey Taylor re-created Stone Sour after the success of Slipknot in the late '90s; the band was meant to serve as a more introspective, melodic, and creative outlet for them, while not disenfranchising the fans of Slipknot.

What sets Stone Sour apart from others of their breed is the band's ability to create smooth, radio-friendly alternative metal songs while simultaneously not boring the people who have heard way too much from post-grunge groups. The secret to this lies in guitarist James Root's unique style and drummer Roy Mayorga's unyielding intensity. Root and singer Corey Taylor re-created Stone Sour after the success of Slipknot in the late '90s; the band was meant to serve as a more introspective, melodic, and creative outlet for them, while not disenfranchising the fans of Slipknot. Stone Sour are more fierce than most alternative metal groups, incorporating brash heavy metal into many of their songs. The band's aggressive self-titled debut was far more reminiscent of Slipknot, but Come What(ever) May is moving further and further away from the shock rock, rap-rock aspect that originally brought Slipknot into the mainstream. Taylor lets loose his nearly metal growl (which is nearly untouchable compared to most of his contemporaries) on occasion, but maybe not as often as he should. The album's better moments are felt when his relentless, vicious pipes -- coupled with distortion-heavy riffs and double bass drum -- forge their way through the immaculately produced sound. Come What(ever) May starts out strong with the bass drum-heavy "30/30-150." The song explodes out of the speakers; it's a solid metal start for an album that dips between alternative rock, heavy metal, and post-grunge. Unfortunately, the album isn't always interesting. Songs like "Through Glass" are your average run-of-the-mill alternative metal tunes, and after a certain point the album seems to have little new to offer. "sillyworld" follows along the same lines, but still has more in common with Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed" than a Godsmack song. Still, Come What(ever) May has plenty of shining moments and it rocks hard, channeling heavy metal and blending it with alternative melodies. It's an unyielding effort from a promising talent -- one that might just help save alternative metal from becoming deeply generic.

    OUTSTANDING!!!

    well what can you say besides that it's stone sour!?!?! Corey Taylor has the best voice in the business and it album shows it. 30-30-150 is amazingly awesome, and ZZYZX RD is absolutely beautiful. Other favorites are Come(what)ever May and Through glass. BUY THIS CD!!!

    Definetly potential

    I, like the first reviewer am not a Slipknot fan and would never have thought i would listen to Corey Taylor and actually enjoy it. Well I was pleasantly surprised by this album. It is an interesting concept and works very well. Their only problem is that sometimes they have settled for making a good song without making it mean anything. 33-150has a catchy beat but fails to carry over any comprehensible emotion. Through Glass is a lot more clear but gives me way too much of an impression that it was written to be catchy instead of emotional.

    One Awesome CD!

    Stone Sour is one of my favorite bands and they have astounded me with their second album. Come What(ever) May is a great follow up to stone sour's first album, I couldn't of expected better.

    Great Album from a great band!

    Come What(ever) May is a tremendous album. Corey Taylor (Vocalist for Stone Sour and Slipknot)is an incredible artist and he comes through with this follow up album (to Stone Sours Self-titled Debut). I can't get over 30/30-150, Through the Glass, or Zzyxx Rd. It's truly incredible how raw and powerful Corey can be on one track, and how melodic and softer on the next, but still maintain an incredible sound and album. Come What(ever) May is awesome. Go get it if you haven't already, because it won't let you down!!!!
