Sep 11, 2010The best KoRn album since... wait... which one was their last one? Oh, whatever, this album was **** amazing from start to finish. This band, and album are definitely in my top ten of all metal bands and albums in the history of forever. 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 »
Jul 24, 2014With the album being called the band's "return to their roots," no one can blame you for having certain expectations. While it doesn't quite capture the essence and sound of the bands first few albums it still comes pretty dang close. With an excellent lyrical quality and some of the heaviest and most oppressive bass out there this is a Korn album to remember.
While most bands tend to filter over the bass work in most of their music Korn allows for it to take center stage bringing forth a style all it's own. The songs are aggressive and dark, but lack the intensity that the bands earlier work is known for. Take "Pop a Pill" for instance. While overall a great song, it loses some steam as it gets closer to the end because of how the vocals become softer and the instruments not so loud. It's not a bad thing, and this is still one great album, it just shows how you can't necessarily expect the power of songs like "Freak on a Leash."
There's still power here, it's just of a different form. Regardless Korn delivers another top-notch album that will have you rocking out in no time. With two of the best singles released by the band and an overall great selection of tracks, you'll be hard pressed to find a better rock/metal album to listen to. My total score for the album is an 8.8/10=Great.… Full Review »
