Review:

Come What(ever) May is simply a great heavy rock record. Everyone’s heard Through Glass, but songs like 30/30-150, Reborn, Made of Scars, and Hell & Consequences really make this record. For me, the clincher is the last song, Zzyzx Rd., which is a piano ballad, proving (to me, anyway) that Corey Taylor can pretty much do any kind of music he wants successfully.

As far as the special edition goes, in true Roadrunner Records fashion, six months or so after an album comes out, here comes the re-release. I’ve gotten wise to this tactic (see KsE’s End Of Heartache), and I’m just flat-out waiting until the special edition comes out before buying anything. In this case, this one is definitely worth it. Five bonus tracks (that are more than just throwaways, the songs are actually record-worthy!), including an acoustic cover of Chris Issak’s ‘Wicked Game’ (Huh’ But Corey pulls it off!), and a DVD with a full live show from Moscow, plus four studio videos. And just because they like us, a popped-up version of Zzyzx Rd, which adds echoes to the vocals, and chops the last minute of the solo at the end. Unfortunately, they don’t like us that much, because this version sucks. The proper album version is much better, far less produced and glossed over.

In short, if you’re gonna buy this album, spend the little bit extra and get the special edition, it’s worth it for the DVD alone, let alone the bonus tracks.
