I wanted to make a review for this album for quite some time, but was reluctant do to so. Why? Because it's my all-time favorite, and I wanted to make sure I'd get it just right. However, after some time spent brainstorming about it, I decided simply to go with the flow and take the spontaneous approach.

It's the year 2002 and Korn fans have already waited for almost three years since the release of Issues, which was the first album that distanced them from the classical nu-metal sound they pioneered and brought into the mainstream and themselves with it. True, with every previous album they were slowly forming a new, thicker and more mature sound (not to mention far far cleaner production, which probably didn't appeal to some), but with this album, they finally hit the creative pinnacle.

Rating: 6 Here to Stay, the only good song by Korn, ever.

  Why so much hate, this is actually a pretty good Album. At least Korn have a great vocalist, not like 95% of the other nu metal bands.

Their best stuff is the older albums if you ask me, specially the debut.

I'll check it out, but maybe Korn isn't for me. There seems to be a lack of...everything but drive. I can't really explain it. I find it very bland.

Haven't heard this one too much but to me their debut is great. Extremely angry and tight songwriting specially with drums and bass.

Do you happen to like industrial metal? My knowledge of the subgenre is very limited, but from what I've heard there're some similarities between the style and that of Korn.

Haven't heard an iota of industrial in their sound, at least not in their classic discography. When I think of Industrial metal I usually think of bands like Godflesh or Ministry.

  There's no industrial in Korn at all. Closest I think nu came to blend with industrial was Static-X, and they're not much nu themselves.

I didn't mean Korn are industrial, I meant that I thought that some of their riffs shared some of the characteristics of industrial metal...a mechanical quality of sorts. I might be wrong, that's why I asked.
