EDITORS’ NOTES

Stone Sour push their catchy hard-rock elements to the front by replacing burly riff-fiend Jim Root with melodic shredder Christian Martucci on Hydrograd. A whiplash ode to love and loyalty, “Song #3” soars with passion, while the equally infectious “Taipei Person / Allah Tea" has Corey Taylor howling about rock ’n’ roll abandon over tight AOR-style solos. Their dark-metal roots pop up throughout, but as “Fabuless” demonstrates, the album is defined by its complex breakdowns.

The very BIG Elephant in the room!!!!

So you get rid of Jim Root, for one reason or another, and the guitars go to generic crap!! Come on everybody this is just not technically the same.. It sounds so generic.

Better than some reviews will tell you

Sure, it may lack some originality now that Jim Root is gone, but that doesn't mean it sounds bad. A one star review is ridiculous.

Stone Sour at their best!

"Fabuless" and "Song #3" are a perfect representation of what this album has to offer. "Fabuless" represents the heavier side of the album, while "Song #3" represents the softer side. With these 2 songs alone, I can already tell that Hydrograd will be worth the months of painful teasing!!!
