Combining the stop-start rhythms of Helmet, the hip-hop assault of Rage Against the Machine and the brooding vocals of Faith No More, Bakersfield, California band Korn concocted a golden formula that would reanimate the dormant corpse of heavy metal. The band's self-titled debut is a teenage-fantasy-endorphin-rush--a subversive noisefest as angry and hostile as Slayer but with a propulsive groove perfect for skateboarding, vandalism, or jumping up and down until you're nauseous. Songs like "Blind," "Clown," and "Shoots and Ladders" blend dark, bleak riffs with head-spinning guitar effects and scream-and-response choruses. But even at their most vitriolic, Korn imbue their blustery music with a cathartic element of fun. --Jon Wiederhorn

Korn: a word that will be remembered decades later for revolutionizing the age of nu-metal as Metallica is remembered for ushering in the age of hard rock. Perhaps not so much for the band itself, but definitely for this self-titled album. Korn took a formula of lyrics dealing with teen angst and other everyday issues mixed with harder-edged music started by such bands as Rage Against the Machine and Nirvana, added their own twist, raised the level of aggression, poured their heart and soul into the mix, and created an album that is an influence and guideline for bands of the past, present, and future.
Korn's music is a dark and angry aggro, groove-laden, downtuned, in-your-face brutal assault of all five of your senses. It's been called crossover, pimp rock, even rapcore. Whatever you call it, I call it incredibly intense and personal on the deepest darkest levels. Featuring the dynamic duo of Head and Munky whose freaky, yet intelligent down-tuned guitar work is a trademark of the Korn sound, Fieldy known for his wicked bass lines, and David whose work on the s/t is nothing short of brilliant (by far his best work of all of the Korn albums), together creates a sound that at the time was unlike any other.
Enter: Jonathan Davis. It is Jon's presence on this album that adds the true essence of brilliance by showcasing not only his talent as a songwriter and vocalist, but by capturing the heartfelt emotion of anguish and pain, hate and anger, of his innermost demons that were released through the making of this album. This album is a part of Jon Davis. Whether dealing with the issues of child abuse, drugs, sex, high school, or peers Jon Davis tells you how it is, straight-forward and in-your-face, brutally honest and real.

I'll be honest, I started with Korn with Issues. That was my first Korn album. I sorta worked my way backwards. After I purchased Issues which in my opinion is one of the best metal albums, I went to the local Waves Music store and bought all the other Korn CDs at once. No other music had as much impact on me as Korn's first album.
The self/titled debut is a truly amazing piece of music. It's pain, tragedy, depression, and all of our darker moments wrapped into a tight package sealed with a black ribbon. In my opinion what Korn represents is really hard to find in today's music. I'm sick and tired of people calling Korn and untalented band. Or saying that Jon Davis' anger is fake. Most of these criticizers have lived their life no longer than 13 years. Live the next 5 or 6 years and you will realize where Korn is coming from. Jon Davis comes from a life that has been filled with pain, suffering, and so much anger that there is enough in him to write 90 albums. I suggest taking a look ... and reading up on the band's history. You will surely be stunned and I would suggest reading the Korn Fiction on KornWeb which reveals some hidiously painful stories about Jon's life. Songs like Clown, Faget, and Need To are songs about everyday things that can affect our entire life forever. But the most true to the heart song has to be Daddy. This is in my opinion the most painful true story ever heard through music. It's a song about how Jon was molested as a child and it clearly shows his true aggression. The crying at the end of the song is real. Jon Davis was alone in the studio as he sang to pre recorded music. This is a slap in the face of all people that say that Korn is just stupid distorted noise. I don't think half the people that say Korn is ... have not even heard this song.

Two years ago, I decided to get into heavy music. Korn was really popular at the time, so I was going to get Follow the Leader. When the music store was out of copies, I got this album. I am so glad I got this instead. From the gradual crescendo begining of Blind to the frantic sobbing at the end of Daddy, this album totally rocks. It will have a large impact on you. The riffs are great. The beats are great. But most imbortantly, the vocalist, Jon Davis, is great. As he covers issues like unpopularity, ill-fated romance, and drug addiction, you can feel his anger. This should be in any true music fan or any teenager's muzic collection. This is the superb metal CD.
Best Songs: 1. Shoots and Ladders (has bagpipe solo!) 2. Blind 3. Faget (NOT homophobic in the least bit) 4. Need To 5. Helmit in the Bush 6. Ball Tongue 7. Clown 8. Predictable 9. Fake 10. Divine 11. Daddy (powerful stuff) 12. Lies
They all are great songs, though. Bands to check out: Deftones, Orgy, Rage Against the Machine, Limp Bizkit, Incubus, Metallica, Marilyn Manson, A Perfect Circle, Taproot, Powerman 5000

"ARE YOU READY?!" These are the first words spoken on the album, and vocalist, Jonathan Davis, MEANS it when he says it! What follows next is a twisted, bumpy, roller coaster ride through the tortured mind of Jonathan Davis. The songs on this album tell dark stories of child abuse, peer pressure, and drug addiction. Jonathan's demonic voice, guitarists, "Head" & "Munky's" eerie riffs, bassist, "Fieldy's" heavy bass-lines, and drummer, David Silvera's "hip-hop" beats make this album's sound very creepy. So, if you're ready, here's a brief review and rating of each song...
1."Blind":The first minute has no words, only David's cymbals, Head & Munky's guitars, and Fieldy's bass building up to the explosive challenge:"ARE YOU READY?!" In my opinion, this is the best and most explosive start to a heavy metal album. Also there is no chorus, just differen't head-banger rythyms that keep the song moving. 10/10
2."Ball Tongue":Has something to do with a broken fiendship. Probably the first KoRn song where Jonathan "raps" gibberish. 9/10
3."Need To":Pretty good. Can't quite tell what it's about, though. Has some screaming in it. 9/10
4."Clown":At first you'll think that this is just a stupid skit, but the beginning is just an argument on how the song should be played. Once it gets into the song it's really good. The heavy guitaring is impressive. It has nothing to do with clowns though.
10/10
5."Divine":Good song. Nothing else to say. 9/10
6."Faget":First of all, this song is NOT bashing gays. (That's probaby why it's spelled wrong.) This song is really about Jonathan being picked on in school. It's pretty emotional and I think it sends a message of how painful it is to be put down by another person. 10/10
7."Shoots and Ladders":A KoRn classic.
