2.0 out of 5 stars NO PLACE TO HIDE!!, 17 April 2011
This review is from: Korn: Live On The Other Side [DVD] (DVD)
Recorded live from the Hammerstein Ballroom (much like their Korn live DVD) in 2005, "Live on The Other side" was the tour to support new album "See You on the Other Side" which was their first album to be recorded since the departure of guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch who had found God.

So Korn rather than replace 'Head' became a four piece, while that might be fine in the studio, you know for the live gig's they would need a replacement guitarist, which they got in Robert Patterson who wouldn't become an official member, in fact on stage you wouldn't even be allowed to see him as he is hidden behind the speakers!! Yet you still catch a glimpse of him here and there. It's all rather embarrassing, there are plenty of bands who have touring members on tour with them, yet they don't hide them.

The set list is mainly made up of older material, another thing to notice is that when they do the guitar solo in "Another Brick In The Wall" which used to be done by 'Head' but is now done by James 'Munky' Shaffer you realise he doesn't play it as good as him. 'Munky' now being the main guitar player in the band now plays all 'Heads' parts and Patterson plays Munky's. Also for backing vocals such as in "Somebody Someone" 'Munky' now performs the backing vocals, however it's not the same. The older material stands out better than the material from "See You On The Other Side", songs such as "A.D.I.D.A.S", "Got The Life" and the brilliant "Freak On A Leash" sound great compared to "Hypocrites" and "Liar".

There is a few extra's such as performing for competition winners on a plane, this time Patterson is not covered up(surely they could have hid him in the toilet or something). They of course now play with a guitarist in sight and a keyboardist, it's just a pity they didn't do that for this tour. Instead check out the "Korn Live" DVD, "Korn live at Montreux" as well as the brilliant intimate setting of Korn "Live at CBGB" which came with the special edition of "Greatest Hits Vol. 1" to see how good live this band really are. Or simply check them out next time they are in your area.
