Different, but definately not to be discarded,
This review is from: Untouchables (Audio CD)
'Here to stay', the first single and song off "Untouchables", really sums up their thoughts for this album, and it shows that the guys are up to make the music that they want to create, and not what the mass market demands.
The influences from Jonathon's stint in movie soundtracks shows through the synthesised layers and the haunting vocals. Indeed, there is less of the melodic screaming to express the hate, but instead Jonathon shows the world that he can sing, and very well at that, conveying enormous emotion and feeling.
The guitar riffs are mesmorising and instantly recognisable as that of Munky and Head, and the spine of the album, David and Fieldy are ever present, creating a new blend of styles.
Overall, this album is not comparable with their past efforts, as it is so different in every aspect, and although hard core fans of their debut "KoRn" may disagree, I think that this is a brillant album, a welcome break from the flood of nu-metal bands emerging, making KoRn, the band who are forever on the edge of their musical genre.
