While Narcissistic Cannibal and Get Up are no doubt the best tracks on the album and helps make the album the most energetic Korn has been in years, the second half of the album feels messy and super repetitive I get that repetition is apart of dance music but still songs like Sanctuary and Way Too Far feel like repeats of other songs and don't do much elevate the album. The album is only under 40 minutes but feels so much longer and the drowning of conspiracy theories with no explanation makes this such a bumbling mess.
I just want to start by saying this is such an overrated album. Now before all the hate comments come in on why I'm wrong and how I'm such a loser hear me out. As the last album to feature original drummer David Silvera and first of four to not feature guitarist Brian Welch, I'm not saying I dislike this album. I just feel like there is many songs on this album that just feel forgettable such as the song Love Song.
If you want to debate me then pick three of your favorite songs from this album that does not include Twisted Transistor, Coming Undone, or Liar. However even with that in mind the album as a whole is still an enjoyable listen and showed that even with these step backs the band was still able to pull through with Munky coming through with some of his best riffs as the now solo guitarist. I was kind of torn on where to put this album because honestly I think it's a great album.
The album that saw the return of Brian "Head" Welch on guitars after an 8 year absence which could've had Korn return to their original 90s sound, but instead decided to take a modern approach to there style and works very well.
Although some of the songs feel like a bit of filler and repeat tracks like Spike in my Vains, Prey for Me, Love and Meth, and even Never Never which I thought was a decent track really helps this album stick out in their discography.
Let's not forget to bonus track Hater of the World Tour Edition which is possibly the best connection between Korn's old sound and their more recent work. Before all the negative comments come in on why this is only number 6. I would like to say I think this is Korn's most underrated album to date. It has Jonathan Davis most tortured and Gone - Korn - Top Star MP3 Box (CD) vocals to date.
It also brings in an atmosphere that has not been repeated in other albums, but the problem for this album was that it sounds like it's just rehashing old ideas from there other albums to Gone - Korn - Top Star MP3 Box (CD) this one without bringing the same impact that earlier albums were able to do.
Even with all of that I can say this is an enjoyable album and you can't tell me Here to Stay isn't one of the greatest songs ever written. Yes, I know this album just came out, but without a doubt I can say this is Korn's best album in the 21st century so far. It include all the qualities that made Korn who they were in the 90s, but with a modern approach to there performance. It has some of Korn's most energetic and ear catching songs such as: Insane, Rotting in Vain, Black is the Soul,and Take Me however it just feels like an album based on nostalgia and doesn't provide anything new from Gone - Korn - Top Star MP3 Box (CD).
But what do I know this is still fairly new, and only time will tell how this album will fair in the future. Let's be honest how can you not place this album high on here. At the height of the bands popularity this album had alot to back up and in many ways it succeeded with a much darker sound compared to the more radio friendly sound of there previous album.
Tracks like Falling Away from Me, Trash, Somebody Someone give a very unsettling vibe in a way only Korn can, and even some of the interludes give many of the songs an intense build up. While songs like Hey Daddy and Let's Get this Party Started are two of the most irritating songs in Korn's discography they can be overlooked with this album.
This album could be seen as the end of Korn's golden years although I disagree it definitely was an album that Gone - Korn - Top Star MP3 Box (CD) one of a kind. Now for the album that made Korn one of the biggest acts in the world at the time, and made the Subgenre known as Nu Metal the biggest cultural phenomenon for almost a decade.
This album could not have come at better time in music. With acts like Marilyn Manson and Rage Against the Machine setting there mark on the mainstream it was only a matter of time when Korn did the same, Gone - Korn - Top Star MP3 Box (CD). Not only were tracks like Got the Life and Freak on a Leash blowing up in popularity at the time, but Korn's constant promoting on there website and by MTV didn't hurt either.
When I look deep into this album I feel like this is a band who realize they had hit the jackpot. It still has that edgy Korn sound but in my opinion probably one of the biggest chorus hooks they have written to date. This track will always be on my running playlist. This song was a perfect blend for me. Limp Bizkit were also one of my favourite bands, so hearing Fred Durst on a track along side Jonathan Davis was amazing. In typical Korn fashion, the opening riff is absolutely disgusting.
I remember watching every online video of it I could find. Follow The Leader had a huge impact on my life, and it was one of the albums that changed my music taste forever. His words really caught me as a kid growing up. I just knew this shit was ahead of its time — those riffs, man! Munky and Head were killing it back then with their bold, unique guitar tone, it made me love the track more and more. I remember listening to it as a kid on my CD Walkman and it gave me goosebumps.
