Dear KoRn, thank you,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Paradigm Shift (Audio CD)
I kind of went off koRn for a few years when Brian left, not because he left but because i also went off and did my own thing and became obsessed with neurofunk haha. Anyway i decided to let a few years go by and come back some other time because i wanst giving the band my ears like i should have. Again when Brian left i didnt care, i knew it wasnt just some little fit he was having or that he was just doing it because he didnt care anymore. What he had to do was a massive deal for everyone and if i was in his position i would not even think twice as to what to do. Kids are kids. you can get as messed up as you want but they dont have a choice as to how you behave. Im proud of what Brian did and very happy he is back with his band.
Anyway..rant over. This album really knocked me on my ass. I heard really good things about it but i wasnt sure if the fans were just happy that Brian was back or whatever. Every track on this record is immense, thick with beautiful music and loaded with old KoRn sounds. The old base is back, the two boys on left and right off tune guitars its just brilliantto hear a gain. Johns melodies are mind blowing just like his voice range, it really handed me my ass.
To be honest this is turning into my favourite KoRn album...being a fan since they started i am massivly proud of what they have done here. They make me be proud to be their fan, not that i ever wasnt. I feel they help the fans become part of the journey by explaining all the stuff that is going on insead of hiding it. it binds the fans to them more The way they got through all the crap and sorted it out was just so great. The music they made after they all came back together (I know David is gone for now but i like their new drummer Ray) is beyond entertaining. When i got this from CD to mp3 player i just put it on loop and listened to it over and over for hours playing dungeon keeper. almost every song on this gave me goose bumps espacially never never and punishment time. There is no song on this record that i dont love and that is extremely hard for any band to to for me. im a picky little bitch.
I didnt really pay much attention to the smalll little things in each song i just let it present itself to me and see what happens. i actually had to stop listening to it because my headphones where on my head too much and my ears were in bits.
This album is a reuniting, reconciliation and celebration of this amazing band. KoRn thank you for not being doosh muppets and for being so mature about the situation, letting your fans become closer by hearing the truth. You are amazing and i am so happy that you are not even close to ending your careers. if you keep coming out with music like this i hope you NEVER NEVER EVER stop producing music.
Put this album in your basket. its amazing and truely rewarding for all you loyle KoRn fans.
The bonus DVD answers a lot of questions and worth a watch.
