Sound — 10
Many people feel this album is the last of 'good Korn' music to be published. They used some new effects and changed their style a little more than I would like. They also showed they can do more than just make heavy songs. I would consider this one of the great albums they have put out.

They have realy improved vocaly and istrumentaly on this album. The band wrote some of their most true to life, heaviest, and darkest music yet. One song that almost every KoRn fan knows is "Freak On A Leash." It has the strangest effect for the intro and verse and many people can relate to it. This also has the closest 'guitar to lyrics' style they have ever done. John has made great progress on his singing from his days on his debut. He mixed soft with heavy and dark with light. The biggest stray from tradition are the rapper gest like in "Children Of The Korn" and "Cameltosis." The only guest singer I like was Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit in "All In The Family" in wich him and John fought back and fourth throughout the whole song.
Overall Impression — 10
This album compares to all their pre-2000 albums. I feel all the songs on this album were impressive and if you wait long enough after "My Gift To You" you can here the "Earache My Eye" which has Chich and Chong in it. The only thing I hated was the guest rappers other than that I loved everything else about this album. If this album was lost or stole I would buy it again and as well buy it for all my friends.
