The Top Ten

1
Slipknot
This album, along with Iowa, are really their best albums, it shows them and the state of mind they were in from the beginning and its essentially the very essence of the band, this album is so angry, so creepy, heavy, everything you'd want in a metal album full packed with the best lyrics, musicianship, and emotion.
The Subliminal Verses has the best Slipknot's songs (DUALITY and BEFORE I FORGET) and more masterpieces that still are on the top of heavy metal, such as The Nameless, The Blister Exists...

It's difficult to choose. "The Subliminal Verses" has the two best Slipknot's songs to me (DUALITY and BEFORE I FORGET), but this one... Just can't stop listening to it. Every song is mind blowing, you can feel the adrenaline, headbanging til the end. And of course, has also BRILLIANT masterpieces almost to the level as the two mentioned (EYELESS, WAIT AND BLEED, SPIT IT OUT, (SIC), PURITY), definitely it's the one which has more awesome songs, so it's the best album.
This thing is epic! (Sic), Eyeless, Wait and Bleed, Surfacing, Spit it out, and Prosthetics and the bomb
[Newest]This album is the best. I loved the way Joey plays in this album and I liked the songs (sic), eyeless, wait and bleed, and purity the most out this album but I honestly also like every song. This album brings back tons of memories on how slipknot sounded once the band agreed with their lineup.

2Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses
One of Slipknot's moodiest, most adventurous, and surprisingly artistic efforts. Also, my favorite. Iowa is a close second. The incorporation of acoustic and melodic elements, with the maintenance of insanely unhinged moments like The Blister Exists and the crescendo of Vermilion, was a brilliant stroke without veering into radio-friendly, overly processed and easily-digestible territory (All Hope is Gone). Danger - Keep Away is one of my favorite tracks of all time.
This is album is a completely different level of absolute perfection. Every song stands out as amazing, and they all mix together aggression and melody in an amazing way. It has songs like "The Blister Exists," "Before I Forget," "Circle," and the two-part "Vermillion." Lastly, instead of sounding over-produced and unoriginal, the album has a unique raw sound that ends up defining it. Best Slipknot album and one of the best of all time.

The only Slipknot album where I LOVE every single song. Self-titled, I'm on the edge about Prosthetics. Iowa, not really into the title track. All Hope Is Gone, not a big fan of This Cold Black and Herein Lies Continue. Even though my favourite Slipknot song is from All Hope Is Gone (Sulfur), Vol.3: The Subliminal Verses is my favourite Slipknot album... Scratch that, it is my favourite metal album of all time
[Newest]This album is kind of like an emotional journey for me. It has the more melodic songs like Vermillion and Danger - Keep Away, and then the angry songs that made them famous like The Blister Exists and Before I Forget. And (hence my username) it contains one of the best songs ever composed in Duality. Overall a masterpiece that I have listened to only about 500 times.

Duality


3Iowa
Heaviest of all slipknot albums and will always be.
Vol 3 was a close second but Iowa takes the cake. Something for me which is hard for me to quantify, it's just so intense and brings something up inside me which few other albums can do but that, and the nostalgia factor aside. The riffs, the anger, the production, the lyrics and just the general quality of musical arrangements and songwriting it top notch and like I said Vol 3 was close but not quite at the same level for me.
A real Maggot would consider this their best album, so many new maggots who favourite the new stuff, wich is also great albums, but this one takes the medal.

Old school 4 ever!
[Newest]Probably their heaviest by far. People=Sh*t and Disasterpiece are probably the heaviest tracks in the album

4All Hope Is Gone
This should always be considered their best album. Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses was good too but nothing compared to this. Its the album that's most metal and has the sickest guitar solos. It has great songs like Psychosocial, Dead Memories, All Hope is Gone, Snuff, The Butcher's Hook, Vendetta, and my personal favorite Slipknot song ever: SULFUR!
What an album man!, this is so kickass, all Slipknot albums are awesome, but this, with songs like Psychosocial, Sulfur, Gematria, Vendetta, Dead Memories, and my favorite, ALL HOPE IS GONE!, SO HEAVY!
The album simply magical! With songs psychosocial and snuff!
[Newest]Great album! I'm glad its in the top 4


5.5: The Gray Chapter
Their most focused, groovy and atmospheric album to date, "The Gray Chapter" is the first Slipknot album that impressed me with every track on repeated listens. All of the songs here compliment each other very well and the flow between each is almost seamless. The whole album is soaked in a dense fog of emotion and energy. Not a single song here feels out of place and the final track is a perfect way the close the album. Also, the two bonus tracks that come with the deluxe edition are incredible. A score of 9.5/10 for me. The only issue I had was with some tracks overstaying their welcome toward the last chorus. That's it guys, the Knot's best album to date is worth voting for and making the #1 spot!
Amazing effort! Pulling off an album without Joey AND Paul (RIP) may seem impossible, but Slipknot not only release an album, but a AMAZING one! I'd suggest songs but there are far too many to pick from! My favourite, however, is probably Custer. Yep, a triumphant return for the 9! Looking forward to the tour!
People thought it was impossible to be a great album without paul and joey but they were wrong this is their heaviest album after debut and Iowa 5/5 in my opinion
[Newest]How is "All Hope is Gone" higher then this!?

6Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.
The album that started it all. Raw yet well produced with great, sometimes whacky/experimental songs, it's a great album. Definitely recommend songs such as Slipknot, Gently, and Only one.
Heaviest in their discography a full out Industrial-Death metal onslaught
Their first album ever.

7Antennas to Hell
Best slipknot album purely for the track selection. Its a best of: album. So its got to be the best. Maggots forever, long live the knot and R.I. P Paul Gray
I don't think anyone that comment on this realizes it's a best of album
What? This is their best of album. Are you kiding me? Simply the best!

89.0: Live
2nd best live show from slipknot (knot fest is #1)

9Crowz
This should have been done and released, it had some brilliant tracks.
This has never been released
I'm sad I gotta go to YouTube every time I wanna listen to this album
