A KoRn Greatest Hits Album? Already?,
This review is from: Greatest Hits Vol 1 (Audio CD)
Hang on, This is not your usual Greatest Hits.
KoRn are contracted to release 7 albums under Sony Records. This album being the 7th, finishes that contract leaving them free to produce thier next album all by themselves. This all makes this album seem a tad rushed. Something they threw together quickly to get thier 7 album deal over and done with. A fact also reflected in that this CD comes in a standard CD jewel case. It would have been nice to see this in a fold out case like the Ltd. Edition of "Take a Look in The Mirror" was.
That said, being a huge KoRn fan I was always going to buy this CD, simply to add to my KoRn collection. I already have all six studio albums so have most of the songs here already, but it is handy having most of KoRn's greatest songs all on one CD, giving you the option of taking one CD around with you rather than six. I say "most of KoRn's greatest songs" because as die hard fans will realise, classic songs like Faget and Thoughtless are missing.
The two new songs, albeit covers, are a nice addition. "Word Up" originally performed by Cameo is very different from KoRns usual style. I expected to hate it but actually really like it, cant wait to see it performed live. And "Another Brick in The Wall" a classic Pink Floyd song sounds great given the KoRn treatment. Though I am sure many Floyd fans will think they've ruined a classic song.
The dvd with the Ltd. Editon has 7 songs from thier free surprise live peformance at the legendary club CBGB. Announced on the radio only hours before the show was to take place. It is an amazing show and they sound phenomenal, I believe this dvd is worth the money alone!
All in all a great CD, all of KoRn's best and most well known songs, A great CD for someone who hasnt heard KoRn and wants to get into them, and absolutely a must have for every KoRn fan!!
