Korn: Issues

Overall Impression — 8
The 4th album released nu-metal gods Korn is a supposedly "rushed" product, but it is actually a quite excellent album. While many of the songs are nothing but filller, songs such as "Lets Get This Party Started", "Falling Away From Me" and "Somebody Someone" proved that Korn has evolved way past the point they started from and, by incorporating new, trippy guitar effects along with synthesizer loops and textures, are the cream of the wannabe nu-metal crop. Even though the guitars in this album are much more cleaned up than the raw guitars of the godfather first album, the riffs are still heavy as hell. Johnothan Davis' singing in this album, however, are much better on this album than on any of their earlier releases (where at some times he sounded like a strained version of Eddie Vedder). Anyway, great album, worth checking out by any means. (Oh, by the way, theres no bulls*** on this album like "All in the Family", so do not panic).
