The most intelligent KoRn Album.,
This review is from: Untouchables (Audio CD)
Sadly i have the duty to tell you that "Follow The Leader" was the cd by korn that got me into them. Now, when i look back at FTL, i see its their worst album. Very few good songs, too many pointless songs. KoRn over the years have been the greatest nu-metal band there is. But with this album, KoRn surpasses the 'nu-metal genre'....it goes much deeper then some horrible bands such as Slipknot and Mushroomhead and Limp Bizkit, who are full of anger but can't express it beautifully in the lyrics as well as in the music. With untouchables, KoRn, blaintly show that they are the most influencial band of the 90s and will continue to be influencial. Untouchables is magnificant. The lyrics have beautiful, "Hollow Life" "No Ones There" are great examples of Davis' vocals as well as lyrics. Untouchables has everything you'd want in an album. Heaviness, Melody, Angst, and a bit of humor (beat it upright). My personal favorite has to be "Hollow Life", a close second would be "No Ones There", both show the lonely depressing feeling like the previous albums, but without the screaming, but rather with brutal singing. Here to stay, is vintage korn, heavy as hell. Make believe has a computerized feel to it. Blame is just brutal. Just an awesome song overall. Hating, very good song. Embrace, heavy as hell like H2S. Wake up hate, this song is a pleasure to listen to. I'm Hiding, is great...to me it seems like Davis is trying to ignore what some of the old korn fans say about new-korn...(JUST LIKE METALLICA!). Bottled Up inside---heavy with tons of angst. One more time, good song, but not my favorite :( . Thoughtless, great 80s feel to the song....great vocals..heavy! Alone i break, it is the 3rd best track on the album...its soft and melodic, with awesome lyrics.
In konclusion, although this is my opinion, buy this album, best metal album in like the past 3 years...its fantastic. Thank you KoRn.
