  • Summary: The Matrix co-produced the band's first album since 2003.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 14
  2. Negative: 1 out of 14
  1. 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]
  2. 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. Its center becomes weighed down with bland mid-tempo numbers and the final song detracts from the powerhouse close the record might have had.
  5. Unfortunately, singer Jonathan Davis can't find the focus and freshness to match the band's reanimated riffs.
  6. For the most part, the producers simply add audio garnishing to Korn's signature sound via loops and Pro Tools trickery. [10 Dec 2005]
  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.

    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. 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. Expand

    If there ever was an " mature" electro sound from this band, than" see you on the other side" is their shiny template that 2011's " Path of Totallity" should have adhered to. Coming Undone definitely should be considered on of their signature tracks. Expand

    I was very reluctant in buying this album. After I heard that Head had left to live in a Christian life i thought the instrumentals would go up **** creek without the paddle. And in ways this harped true and in others it didnt. munky did step up to a degree.
    Also when i heard that Korn enlisted production company The Matrix (pop producers responsible for acts such as Pink and Avril Lavigne) I thought they were doing a desperate for more chart topping songs.
    The result, a more pop rock album than their previous efforts with singles 'Twisted Transistor' and ' Coming Undone' Very Reminiscent of the Follow the Leader Singles.
    Its a pop metal/hard rock album that more a miss than a hit.
    But after losing a band member and enlisting the producers they did its leaves the direction and experimentation of the band in limbo.
    Not a failure of an album, but it is certainly unimpressive and uninspiring compared to previous albums.

    A competent if rather static affair, Korn successfully re-enter the mainstream with SYOTOS, with Matrix adding a new liege of life to a dwindling fan base and harsh critics. 'Love Song', 'Seen It All' and 'Twisted Transistor' give fresh air to a stale genre, and it works enough for the band. Expand
