✦✦✦✧ Experimental even by The Knot’s standards, this album aims to see how far the band can push their envelope and their famously rabid fanbase. To that end, while it’s likely 10 minutes too long, there’s plenty of ear candy throughout the album. (Spoiler: there’s a track midway through the album that reminds me of Tool inexplicably.) Admittedly, I haven’t cared much about Slipknot in about two decades… but this album may bring me back to their circus more than I would have predicted.
