I would really give this 3.5 stars because it does not deliver the way it should. Maybe for 5 dollars that's a fair price but this could've been so much better than it was. Maybe it was because of how messed up Jon Davis was. They had songs like Proud, Sean Olson, and Kick the PA that they could've put on here instead of soundtracks to make up for the filler but they chose to just kind of have a really strange metal/rap/funky thing going on (theres an Ice Cube cover of "Wicked", one of the few good tracks). The 1-4 range from unnecessary to B-side worthy then you get songs that are classics like "Good God", "No Place to Hide", "ADIDAS", "Wicked", I actually liked the playfullness of "Lowrider", "KE&%E" gets old, " so does "Ass Itch", however "Kill Me" is a really cool track that is very sincere and off the rails heavy emotionally and musically. So yes there are huge upsides on here but they are surrounded my...
I just don't know why, people consistently rate this album as "mediocre." Korn hit big time when I was like 13 or so (that perfect age), and we were all wearing Adidas jumpsuits and piercing our eyebrows, trying to grow dreadlocks. Their test was for the follow up to their debut, and it did not disappoint.
I don't know if I just appreciate the "musicality" of this album, that most people don't recognize, but when I go to a random "Best Korn Album" list, and see "Follow the Leader" or "See You on the Other Side," I'm literally dumbfounded.
Their first album was good. It was fresh. We hadn't heard or seen anything like Korn before. But their second album had a certain focused, tasteful, and frankly "original" style to it that I didn't see on any of their albums after. I'm sure it was missed by as many as loved the first album.
Most music artists will have that "sweet spot" in their careers, where the stars align, and wonderful music seems to flow...
This album has the best opening I have ever heard with "Twist". The song is just one of those things that automatically catches your attention. Jonathan doesn't say anything other than twist and the song isn't that long, but man is that song memorable (no wonder they still perform that song). Then "Chi" just fits so well as a follow up to the song. Overall, the album does sound like a continuation of their debut, but it just isn't as good. There are some great songs on here,famous and fan loved, but the lesser known songs on the album aren't as good as the lesser known songs on their debut album. With that being said, I still recommend buying this. There are some really great songs to be found here!
