4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtless in some areas, 17 Jun 2003
This review is from: Untouchables (Audio CD)
Ok, lets face the facts, the anticipation for this record was off the charts, with it's huge figure record deal on epic and it is also their first album in 3 years since the fatal accident of drummer David Siliveria.
Come june 2002 and Korn hits the music industry once again with it's anger fueled metal and the haunting vocals of Jonathan Davies. Lead off single Here To Stay got huge raves on it, surely if one song from them can be that good then obviously the album would be worth way beyond their huge figure deal.
I bought the album after hearing that single and seeing the artwork and track listings (i've never seen a bunch of shy high school kids look so scary in my life) and i am impressed by them being that it is the first album i have bought of theirs; but it's not all excellent.
Here To Stay was a bombtrack, Thoughtless (the follow-up) was a nuclear bombtrack and Alone I Break is one of their best ever songs they have written to date, however where those track change the course of metal, many of the others fail to live to the hype.
Make Believe is good but due it's draining vocals and mellow melody it's very hard to get into and Hating doesn't really catch the listeners attention untill the chorus hits.
So was it worth the wait, well yes but unlike the title, they are not truly untouchable
