this korn album is far more refined than any other album they have released. what i mean by that, is that the guitars, riffs, and production have all come together to present a heavy dose of metal that does not sound raw to the likes of previous excellent albums that took the "raw" production approach (korn, life is peachy, take a look through mirror, III).

as usual with korn, every track has a great chorus and they always seem to be able to come up with excellent lyrics and choruses album after album - nothing ever repeats itself with this band. every track on here is great, and i cannot find a fault with one of them and like them all.

i did however have a hard time getting into the album on the first listen, probably because i was once again expecting a rocker of an album like follow the leader and that sort of clouded my judgement. after the first listen though, i was finding myself singing along to "Victimized" quite a lot, which drew me back to the album and then it just took off from there. Now i sing along to every track and i have found relation to all of the tracks rather than just 1.

this album is a return to metal - dubstep is gone. personally i thought path of totality was a load of s*** - because i don't like dubstep music. i would have never cared that Korn made it, i don't change my musical taste just because a band wants to get all "experimental". i was worried that this would also be dubstep because the first single Never Never had some in the last quarter of the song, but that is the ONLY bit in this album and even that bit is more techno than dubstep - so that's fine.

lastly, this album has no reason for a die hard, or even a simple korn fan to not love. it ticks all the boxes, and has no filler tracks that are crap. Every track is playable live, and for a band to make an album that is entirely playable live on stage - means it's a great album. People who don't like this album also generally never back up their reasons, and not liking it just because it is not a "Life is Peachy" or "Korn" is no excuse. Those albums came out nearly 2 decades ago - get over it.

i lost faith in korn after the horrible path of totality which disgusted me!!! although i wasnt that bothered by head leaving i was more bothered by what korn were doing without him see you on the other side was great!! then the awefull untitled album and then the horrible dubstep crap!! but this album is korn back to what ive loved since the good old days, it has the heavy dual riffs and bouncing bass lines all the stuff reminds me of classic korn from every prevoius album put together and thankfully they didnt put very much electronics in it!! there is one let down track being "never never" which is terrible but buy the special edition with 2 bonus tracks and a dvd, the bonus tracks are the best on the album!! my favorite being "wish i wasnt born today" also the dvd is great its a documentary but its so interesting! it covers heads problems and the reunion with korn but i havent watched it all!! anyway BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!! KORN FANS YOU WILL LIKE IT!!! END NOTE: BEST KORN ALBUM FOR SOO LONG!!!!!!!! AND SINCE I WROTE THIS REVIEW I HAVE LISTENED TO THE ALBUM AT LEAST FOUR TIMES A DAY AND I NOW THINK ITS THE BEST ALBUM THEY HAVE DONE!!! ITS MY FAVORITE ALBUM NOW!!!
