Sound — 9
The whole of the album is unlike previos korn albums. Verging on a emo-grudge guitar playing. Songs such as kiss are unkoRn like whereas, songs like killing seem to be heavy and more like the KoRn stuff I am use too. I believe hushabye was written as Davis announced that he had a problem and it caused a morbid outlook and thus this song came to life.

I think the lyrics where quite different and seemed quite relevent to events in my life at the time. the music seemed to fit in sync. with the music. Davis showed many skills, going from partial screamo to the softer voice of previous korn tracks. Kiss is a slightly deep song for me, as at the time I was confussed and well this song didnt help. this is what I would declare as one of the most emo songs on the entire album.
Overall Impression — 9
It is a goood album but its not as goood as previos in my opinion. I think it crashed the previous sound of korn. but it revolutionised there genre and so they are better known. Killing, I will protect you, Starting over & bitch we got a problem seemed to be the best songs on the album. Its different thats what i hate about it. I would buy it again if anything happened to it as im a massive fan of KoRn, so I reccomend earlier stuff for the real KoRn But this mite be an insight to future albums.
