Okay so I was pretty into Korn when they were huge. I was in high school when I went to see them tour for "Follow the Leader". I followed them from the beginning, and enjoyed them up until 2003's "Take a Look in the Mirror". I've dipped in a little bit here and there since then, but nothing really impressed me. First Brian "Head" Welch left the band, and then David Silveria... and I kinda don't like when the original band splits, so I kinda lost interest...
Recently I've been listening to a lot of "classic" Korn, I didn't even realize that Korn had a new album coming out the very next day, after I randomly found myself web browsing Korn online. I read about the return of Brian Welch, and I gave the new album a chance the next day, now that I had skipped the previous 5 albums...
The end verdict is a good one. Although I'd imagine I'd enjoy this album better if David had returned, just for my own stuborness of new members.
... To be honest, I've been all over the place this year with new albums. And likewise it's been a great year. The new Yeah Yeah Yeah's album was amazing. The new Filter album was amazing. The new Nine Inch Nails album was amazing. And now Korn has returned from the grave for me. The first album I've really enjoyed since 2002's "Untouchables."
I hate to say it, but this new Korn album has left a more positive effect on me than the new Nine Inch Nails, and from the beginning, I've always been a bigger NIN fan than Korn.
Every time I listen to this album, I love it more and more. Favorite songs so far being "What we Do", "Spike in my Veins", "Never Never", and "Lullaby for a Sadist."
Maybe not my favorite Korn album, due to nostalgia reasons, but this is pretty close.
Awesome.... Highly recommended.
Sidenote: It really does bug me when bands change members sometimes. Not all the time, but sometimes. Nine Inch Nails I don't worry about, cause that has always basically just been "Trent Reznor" with constant new members filling his vision. But bands like Alice in Chains... The newer singer is pretty good! But I feel the band would have been more successful if they simply retired the "Alice in Chains" name, and started from scratch with this new vocalist since "Layne's" death.
Another one... Guns N Roses... Axl Rose is amazing, he's always been a legend, but the dude is old now... He's very talented, but he should have let go of the "Guns N Roses" name instead of acting as immature as a teenager. Wake up! Let go of stuff! Start over! I think if Axl had devised a whole new band, the so called "new" Guns N Roses would be significantly more successful. He should have gone ahead and reunited with ex band mates for the Rock and Roll hall of fame too... when ARE you going to grow up... I have a lot of opinions on the matter of Guns N Roses.
