  1. If rap-metal were ever meant to evolve, See You on the Other Side is the record that does it.
  2. Its center becomes weighed down with bland mid-tempo numbers and the final song detracts from the powerhouse close the record might have had.
  3. For the most part, the producers simply add audio garnishing to Korn's signature sound via loops and Pro Tools trickery. [10 Dec 2005]

    Less scary but more melodic, Korn guns for hits, not street cred. [Mar 2006, p.113]
  5. 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.
  6. Has a polish that verges on parody.
  7. Sonically stunning stuff. [16 Dec 2005, p.80]
  8. 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]
  9. Korn have succeeded in bringing mainstream producers to inject freshness into their songs, without entering into a Faustian bargain and compromising their music.
  10. If you scratch below the surface of 'See You On The Other Side' you'll find little of substance. [3 Dec 2005, p.43]
  11. Fusing strange, arresting rhythms with gothic atmospheres, these surprisingly modern-sounding soundscapes should earn Korn a deserved second wind. [Jan 2006, p.127]
  12. Unfortunately, singer Jonathan Davis can't find the focus and freshness to match the band's reanimated riffs.
  13. "See You on the Other Side" turns out to be Korn's version of a Nine Inch Nails album - a good one. [5 Dec 2005]
  14. 40
    Korn are too lumpen to handle 'sophisticated.' [Jan 2006, p.102]

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.

Coming Undone definitely should be considered on of their signature tracks. Full Review »

'Love Song', 'Seen It All' and 'Twisted Transistor' give fresh air to a stale genre, and it works enough for the band. Full Review »
