    Korn have always excelled at pain, but with The Nothing, this is the most authentic it's ever been.

    There are incredibly emotional moments throughout the record, really driving the anger and sadness of the music. Some songs lack depth and don’t land as well as others, but, overall, The Nothing remains an emotionally potent experience that longtime fans of Korn will enjoy.

    It is more a showcase of Korn's strengths when hard times do come along; harnessing their ability to inspire and energise even in the darkest and most difficult of circumstances. [14 Sep 2019, p.53]

    This urgent and important record will ensure the veterans don’t get lost in the shuffle.

    Overall, The Nothing is a huge step back for the band. The Paradigm Shift and The Serenity of Suffering were far from perfect, but they rode a line that balanced a contemporary vision with their stapled characteristics. This tries dearly to be nostalgic yet fresh, but the finished product just comes across forced and derivative.

    Korn's best album since 2002. Listen from start to finish. Highlights for me are Gravity of Discomfort, H@rd3r.

It's not quite as heavy as The Serenity of Suffering was, but the songwriting is better. This is probably the band's most focused album, centered on themes of grief and loss. Every member of the band is firing on all cylinders here, with great performances all around. It's not perfect, however. The Seduction of Indulgence is a weak track and the songs become predictable by album's end. But it's still one hell of a ride. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Very dark and emotional album. Lyrics is great. Vocal of Jonathan Davis, bass and drums are very cool. I think that "The nothing" much better than previous album, because "The serenity of suffering" was too monotonous. Favorite tracks: "Surremder to failure", " This loss", "Tye end begins", "Finally free" and "Cold". The band is still cool! Expand
