Sep 11, 2010The best KoRn album since... wait... which one was their last one? Oh, whatever, this album was **** amazing from start to finish.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes the KoRn, any album that you have been listening to for the last six years begging for a new one.… Full Review »
Sep 2, 2013Just two questions: Who's idea was this? And what the hell were they thinking?
The first five minutes of the album start out descent enough. "Uber-time" is interesting and Oildale (Leave Me Alone) is good through the first half until the bridge where the "oh-too-familiar" JD crying and freakouts from the 90's return and they're corny than ever (no pun intended). The rest of the songs sadly follow the same format.
Also about halfway through I noticed the drums didn't match the vibe of the groovy sound they were going for on this album. While Ray is a great drummer, his sound was not right for this album, then again nothing on this album sounded "right".
The worst song on the album is "Fear is a Place to Live." Possibly the worst line I've heard ever was in this song where Jon keeps screaming "I always get f*cked in the end". C'mon guys a little re-wording there would make a world of difference.
Songs like "Oildale", "Lead the Parade", & "The Past" all have promise but fall apart halfway through. If you're an average Korn fan go ahead and pass on this one, if you're a huge fan, you may want it for your collection or at least use it as a coaster.… Full Review »
