I heard it, here's my take.
Track 1.)....bad way to open the album. Hated it. Leans WAYYY too far to dub and not metal.
Track 2. Read above.
Track 3. Much better. I like this one.
4. Already love this one.
5.Not bad, not great.
6.Meh
7.Love it even if no one else does.
8. Let's go?...let's not. don't like.
9.Love it.
10.Need to listen to again
11.Same as 10.

All in all not a complete failure.
Half and half, I'll download the songs I like from Amazon.
Leagues better than the other dub step atrocity from Power Morbid 5000.
I may buy it if it grows on me but too much of leans heavily toward dub with little metal.
We're right back to...this really isn't as new as Korn or Morbid like to think it is.
Sorry, Fear Factory did this whole thing better 20 years ago.
I'd like to hear a metal version of the album but that probably won't happen.
Not future metal, nor is it any kind of nail in Korn's coffin.
It, if anything brought them a ton of attention and for sure it will sell like hot cakes based on half of the songs being good.
I'm curious to see if they'll continue in this vein....
I give it 3/5. Not that anyone gives a rip about my opinion lol.

BrianMN - Big thanks. I have no interest in listening to a second of this album, but was pretty interested in hearing a snappy review of it.

Man, they removed key elements that I had liked about Korn and replaced it with a current popular musical trend. Not impressed.

Absent is a good funky bass guitar. In its place is a synthesized bassline.
Absent is a good driving drumbeat played with conviction by a person. Instead, is a drum machine or sampled loops.
The 7 string guitar riffs are not a driving force of the music. They are subdued in the mix due to the overwhelming bass.
The angry vocals are now just whiny vocals. (Although, this has been my perception for some time now.)

IMO, They really went to sh!t when Welch left. Nothing in this reminds me of the energy and uniqueness that Korn originally had. This sounds derivative of other trends currently gaining popularity.

Now, where's KornDogg to defend this?

@DJ….I’m going to agree somewhat.
There are three kick a$$ songs on here but I just went to Youtube and listened to “Paralyzed” from Head and yeah…it’s the energy and that dirty/creepy vibe/rage/that made Korn so good to begin with.
I want to hear the rest of the Head album before I say his is the better final product though.

^True. No judgement yet on Head's project. Just judging this offering on it's own merits, its not my cup of tea. It just doesn't have the elements that I enjoyed about them in the past.

Havent listened to the whole thing yet. Ill agree with DJ, its missing what makes korn "korn"! But with that said, its something different and new, may take a little while to sink in. So Id have to listen to it a few times through to really state a solid opinion. I like heads new stuff, will def pick the album up, along with this one. I just hope korns next album is something raw, heavy, and basic. KORN III was a start to getting back to their roots, then this came out. Ill post again when I give it full listen

11. Worst Linkin Park album yet ... writes:

at least, that was my take on it.

I agree with the previous comments on this thread, especially: where is the funk bass? Such a huge part of Korn's sound ... and it is non-existant on this record. Every song pretty much sounds exactly the same - synth/effect intro - beat drops, repeat some boring loop, add vocals .. nothing really jumps out.

I am just happy that I still have Ball Tongue and Blind to listen to.

I was on board with Korn waaaayyy back when I was trying to find something other than Metallica, Slayer, Pantera and Tool to listen to ... in '94. Underground was still a new concept for me. I was still a few years from driving.

The last time I listened to a Korn album from end to end, I was on the grand jury of a case that decided the fate of a Catholic priest that had molested little boys in 2002. " I bought "Take a Look in the Mirror" used. Nostalgia and 3 tallboys demanded it. Two tracks on that one were alright. I have considered Korn dead long since. The bits I've heard since then ... hysterical.
