    While some recent Korn records sometimes got lost in the sludge, "Twisted Transistor" and other new tracks reach back to find harsh, and intimate, hard-rock hooks. [6 Dec 2005]

    Sonically stunning stuff. [16 Dec 2005, p.80]
  3. If rap-metal were ever meant to evolve, See You on the Other Side is the record that does it.
  4. Blender

    Less scary but more melodic, Korn guns for hits, not street cred. [Mar 2006, p.113]
  5. Billboard

    For the most part, the producers simply add audio garnishing to Korn's signature sound via loops and Pro Tools trickery. [10 Dec 2005]
  6. Unfortunately, singer Jonathan Davis can't find the focus and freshness to match the band's reanimated riffs.
  7. Despite this album's production credits reading like a PhD thesis, Korn's commercial masterplan is fatally undermined by certain glaring weaknesses, the main one being that their singer is a dunderheaded, sexist, self-pitying fool.

    This album is better than any album they've put out since the self-titled debut. All the tracks on this cd are just plain addictive. I This album is better than any album they've put out since the self-titled debut. All the tracks on this cd are just plain addictive. I can't stop listening to this so-called new direction and reinvention of KoRn. Expand

    This album is exactly what the band needed, a freakin shot in the arm! This is what all the great bands do, evolve and stay relevant. The This album is exactly what the band needed, a freakin shot in the arm! This is what all the great bands do, evolve and stay relevant. The best way to listen to these songs is definitely live, they are amazing. If not live, through good headphones is the next best. A suggestion for the next album would be to let Munky turn off distortion and some of the other pedals and rip out a solo every once in a while. This album, however, is complete without it. Including the B-sides really enchances the quality of the album, but you'd have to go out of your way to get them. Definitely buy the limited edition with the bonus disc. Expand

    Heavy and groovy songs. Jonathan wrote more political stuff in this album and some pornography but I still love the album one of my favs. TheHeavy and groovy songs. Jonathan wrote more political stuff in this album and some pornography but I still love the album one of my favs. The songs were more creepier like the beginning of the songs, there were whispers and growls I don't know things like that and still fits in KoRn.

It´s very industrial and moody sometimes, but still sounds a lot like Korn. It´s a very interesting sound. I won´t say it´s one of Korn´s best albums (they have released too many by now), but I will say it´s better than Take a Look in the Mirror. Some songs go unnoticed, but the cool stuff here is great.

    Let's be honest.... the first time i listened to the album i felt that korn had blew it... But then listening more carefully to some Let's be honest.... the first time i listened to the album i felt that korn had blew it... But then listening more carefully to some songs you realize that there are some incredible intro's and energetic songs like "throw me away" the fantastic "liar" with the initial drum static roll, and "politics". It's not an revolutionary album but, evolutionary for korn. I believe that this album has great potential, but it may drive away hardcore korn fans due to the diferent (but similar) korn sound. To conclude not their best album, but it was fresh, different and kinetic has ever. Put it on your stereo and raise the volume... but don't forget to fast foward some tracks!! Best intro's ever...
