The Top Ten

All 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]This being on top just proves the vast majority of posers in the fan base

2Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses
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
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.
The best Slipknot album including Before I Forget, The Blister Exist, Duality and many more...


[Newest]The best, it's got The Virus Of Life, 'enough said

This thing is epic! (Sic), Eyeless, Wait and Bleed, Surfacing, Spit it out, and Prosthetics and the bomb
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.
Easily the best slipknot album. Started off by the power of sic and eyeless, followed by AWESOME songs such as wait and bleed, liberate and spit it out, purity (my favorite), etc, and ended by the aggresive eeyore. There is not one song you will not like! It is truly the best of slipknot.
[Newest]Can't get enough of this album. Surfacing, (Sic), Wait and Bleed, Spit it Out and purity are just many of their outstanding songs

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!
True Slipknot fans KNOW that this is their best album! Nothing and I mean NOTHING touches this album when it comes to getting pumped up or just feeling the rage it brings out in person. Every song makes you want to head bang and sing/scream the words. Listen to this album if you want to let off some steam! Caution you might find that it can be a huge stress reliever as well.
Love the intensity, anger and overall emotion. The album is like a long trip into hell and back. The whole album consists of heavy drumming, excellent sampling, great guitar riffs and overwhelmingly powerful vocals on the part of corey taylor
[Newest]There never was, nor ever will be an album that is as hard/heavy and sounds as good as Iowa. Every track is tangible to the point you wear it like a suit of armor. If you tore my soul open, this is the sound you would hear.

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!
Best album because they're bringing the old sounds and feeling back from the older albums while keeping it sounding good and desirable
[Newest]First album I heard, and my favourite

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.
They captured a certain vibe on MFKR they haven't been able to replicate since. Really cool, experimental album that was fairly unique-ish.

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
What? This is their best of album. Are you kiding me? Simply the best!
This is truly an awesome album my favorite song is vermilion
[Newest]This is their "best of" album. The best songs from the best albums. It's the best.
