Let's face it, KoRn who helped give birth to an entire genre of aggressive, hip-hop-imbued rock during the mid-1990s and have become infamous for delivering one of the most intense and brutal live shows around and the word "acoustic" have never appeared in the same sentence until, well, right now. This is a band whose members scream through entire live sets with such force that they can be heard over the 120 decibels they're known for pumping out onstage. This is a band that doesn't rock sitting down. So how would tracks like "Got the Life," "Blind" and "Freak on a Leash" sound unplugged? Well, different, of course but no less ominous, passionate or intimidating.
Korn has made a career out of playing loud, angry rock & rollloud and angry enough that placing the band in the unplugged setting has, until now, seemed unthinkable. But the risk has more or less paid off. Tracks such as "Blind" and "Hollow Life" work best in this new contexteach filled with a sense of drama but not melodrama, their essential emotional weight is given new heft by opting for intense calm rather than an epicand overwroughtmusical maelstrom. Others, such as "Twisted Transistor" teeter on self-parody; a guest turn from Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee for "Freak on a Leash" is inspired, one from the Cure for "Make Me Bad/In Between Days" doesn't quite live up to its promise on paper. But the band's reading of Radiohead's "Creep" is heartfelt and true, making this unplugged endeavor worthwhile and truly entertaining.--Jedd Beaudoin

A cool CD for a Korn fan, but for the most part it just seems like a record label gimmick (especially with Amy Lee on the disk). Read morePublished 4 months ago by Matthew D Fennell
I'm not a Korn fan, generally. Buy this CD is great! The acoustic versions are dramatically better than their original songs. Musically phenomenal with some surprising sounds. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Two under 2
