    Three million dollars to produce this? For those who haven't heard it, here's a summary: ROOOAARRR! CRUNGE! SHOUTY BITS! ROOAARR! CRUNGE! SHOUTY BITS! O GOD AM I IN PAIN! WHERE'S MY BENTLEY? WHERE'S MY DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE? ROOAARR! CRUNGE! Only illiterate, homophobic high school dropouts need apply...

    Okay this album is garbage. I dont know what Jon Davis is thinking but trying to sound like Tears for fears and the Cure is not working for them, Davis has totally lost all touch to his low, gutteral rage in his vocal chords he now sounds like a prissy, brit-pop diva on these worthless, and even laughable tracks. I am so glad my buddy and I downloaded the CD because just by hearing their Okay this album is garbage.

I am so glad my buddy and I downloaded the CD because just by hearing their 1st radio tune(which is good actually) I may of bought bieng a Korn fan! and it sickens me when the critics who obviously never heard of Korn till follow the Leader call this dark. Listen to Korn's first CD, now that is dark, the driving gutteral angst that embodies what Korn was and should always be meant to be! It angers me when bands lose their grip one what made them good in the first place have ignorant critics telling them they have put out their best CD yet! Shame on you critics shame!!!!! Wake up!

    Once again jon davis trying too hard to be deep, when in all reality..he isnt. I expect an apology from them to the fans for wasting their time, and money...on this shit they call music. Excuse me, where are the $$$ in the word art?

    As expected jon davis' lyrics are about as deep as a puddle, and meaningful as words written in water. The music, the band itself have no artistic integrity, but I am sure there has to be somone stupid enough to like this album. Yuk. And these guys own a record company? I have a feeling that we are about to have an onslaught of terrible music plague our land.

    Korn sucks. Screw Korn. If you want more insight to that comment: Jon Davis is nearing his forties and still complains about being beaten up in High School, and his attempts to write about anything else are worthless. Plus, he can't sing. He sounds like a queer banshee.

  1. The song, sentiment and anger remain the same.
  2. 'Untouchables' is a record that grows spikes with each listen and is by turns exhilarating, confusing, inspiring, embarrassing and astonishing.

    Their darkest, most impenetrable record yet--the aural approximation of staring down a mine shaft at midnight. [Jul 2002, p.75]
