Reviews for ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ encompassed a broad media spectrum, reinforcing the innovation and creative vision of the Iowa band, twenty years into their celebrated existence. “With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career,” remarkedConsequence of Sound, with The Independent declaring, “The sheer ambition of We Are Not Your Kind is just as staggering as their seminal record Iowa – the dynamic might be even better.” The Ringer professed, “Slipknot’s sixth album… furthers the argument that they’re the most important heavy band of their era,” while Kerrang! attested, “20 years since their debut, Slipknot are as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.” Vulture praised the LP for its “maelstrom of serrated riffs, warlike drums, and machine-gun poetry from Taylor,” and The NME put it simply: “The ‘Knot’s sixth album is an astonishing record.”
‘We Are Not Your Kind’ is highlighted by ‘Solway Firth,’ ‘Birth Of The Cruel,’ and the LP’s lead single ‘Unsainted.’ All three came with an M.
