4.0 out of 5 stars KORN RETURN TO THEIR ROOTS
Ever since Korn lost original member guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch to religion in early 2005 its fair to say that they didn't really know how to replace him, first came in new songwriters and producers The Matrix as well as Nine Inch Nails producer Atticus Ross and what would folow would be two multi layered albums(2005's see you on the other side and 2007's untitled) that...

3.0 out of 5 stars KoRn Return To Their Roots...But Where's The Hits?
Ok firstly I have rated this album with 3 stars well because it is a KoRn album after all. I bought this album because I have been a KoRn fan for quite a while and wanted to pick it up and see where exactly the band were at. Hmmm well, after a quite rubbish last album "Untitled" KoRn have indeed as advertised, gone back to their roots! Unfortunately though, usually when...

4.0 out of 5 stars KORN RETURN TO THEIR ROOTS, 10 July 2010
This review is from: Remember Who You Are: Korn III (Audio CD)
Ever since Korn lost original member guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch to religion in early 2005 its fair to say that they didn't really know how to replace him, first came in new songwriters and producers The Matrix as well as Nine Inch Nails producer Atticus Ross and what would folow would be two multi layered albums(2005's see you on the other side and 2007's untitled) that were full of effects and keyboards, even watching them playing live was a bit confusing as sometimes the replacement guitarist was hidden from view and then they went the other way were there was loads of extra musicians on stage. Original drummer David Silveria was next to depart in late 2006. It's interesting to note that on their most recent tours they have stopped playing material from "See you on the other side" and untitled which is also the lowest selling Korn studio album. Eventually they would recruit a replacement drummer in Ray Luzier.

For their ninth studio album "Korn III Remember Who You Are" Korn would go back to their roots and bring back Ross Robinson who produced their first two albums. Its great to say that its a true return to form, it's just four guys making music with all the songs written by Korn. The signs were good when they released the first single "Oildale (leave me alone) back in May as it had the early Korn sound. "Pop A Pill" is driven by Fieldy's trademark slap bass and is a real heavy track that wouldn't have sounded out of place on either of Korn's first two albums. The album reaches it's high point mid way through on tracks "Lead The Parade", "Let The Guilt Go" and "The Past". Album closer "Holding All These Lies" features a vintage Jonathan Davis emotional vocal performance.

Korn III Remember Who You Are really was a make or break album for Korn as long time fans had seen the band fall apart in the last few years and alot had given up hope of a decent album, thankfully they have delivered their best album in a long time!

3.0 out of 5 stars KoRn Return To Their Roots...But Where's The Hits?, 6 Sep 2010
This review is from: Remember Who You Are: Korn III (Audio CD)
Ok firstly I have rated this album with 3 stars well because it is a KoRn album after all. I bought this album because I have been a KoRn fan for quite a while and wanted to pick it up and see where exactly the band were at. Hmmm well, after a quite rubbish last album "Untitled" KoRn have indeed as advertised, gone back to their roots! Unfortunately though, usually when you get a KoRn album, the standout tracks are very apparent almost straight away and the rest of the songs are usually album fillers or songs of average quality. Its seems. However that after a few listens that this album is just full of average quality songs. There is not one standout single at all. Its like KoRn "Lite". Almost like the band have watered down their own material. Mostly all the songs are quite boring and Johnathon Davis was quoted saying to the producer Ross Robinson who produced this album that he "did it" and that he had exercised his demons and is drained of his negative emotion, well until the next album is due and the band need more money. If this album had been maybe a B sides album I would have totally understood. Maybe time to call it a day guys?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great record, 26 Mar 2014
This review is from: Remember Who You Are: Korn III (Audio CD)
korn have gone old school on this Album. It is crazy fun to listen to, reminds me of life is peachy a bit. real grungy bop your head with nasty (and funny) lyrics.

Lead the parade would be a favourite just because I love nutty songs, like twist or chi. John just goes nuts for some of these songs and its super fun to sing with him.

Very good album to add to any KoRn fans collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars On Ray Luzier's first album with Korn, they opt ..., 21 Sep 2014

This review is from: Remember Who You Are: Korn III (Audio CD)
On Ray Luzier's first album with Korn, they opt for the rawness of the first two albums while maintaining the progression of the band since. For my part they succeed with flying colors!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album, nothing new though., 13 Jan 2011

If you like any previous korn albums, i think you will like this one just as much, the "sound"
is pretty much the same, nothing that new/progressive from last time.
I'm not a hardcore korn fan but being generally interested in music, it is deifnitely one
album you should listen to whether you enjoy this specific genre or not.
