All right, first off; buy this album, listen to it, then listen to Linkin Park, Staind,or any of the other posers out there and tell me what you think of this album. Thats the funny thing about Korn, they get bad ratings from devoted Korn fans because they liked the sound of another album by them and wished they did it again. Yet if you do what I say, you will appreciate them that much more. If Korn never changed their sound, guys, then alot of you wouldn't have gotten Follow the Leader, or the underrated Untouchables, so lets try to keep the ratings in perspective here, guys. I am giving this album 4 stars instead of the 5 it deserves out of respect for Korn self titled. That album is a out-of-the-park masterpiece, and to give any other album by Korn a 5-star rating will diminish that. See where I'm going?
Okay, to the album in question: Issues
This is their second-best album they have come out with in my opinion, (thats opinion, not fact, there are lots of Follow the Leader fans out there) but this is their most consistant, pleasing entry since Korn self-titled. There is hardly a weak track on here, and yes, I am counting the "fillers". That is a controversy on this album, I can see that from reading reviews. Okay, this album was made to be listened to in one sitting, and they add to the pace and feel of the album nicely. I also think that is why they didn't put a bonus track in there, because it would have changed the feel of the album. This isn't a concept album, really, sort of a semi-concept album. Also, if you listen to Life is Peachy, or other Korn albums, notice the backround noise in there occasionally? For example, in Good God in Life is Peachy, right at the end, you can hear the band members laughing. It happens a few times in various albums (not just Korn). I think this was done on purpose, to add to the whole feel of the album, and makes the whole listening experience that much more enjoyable. When I first bought this album (off Amazon by the way, mint condition, really cheap price) I went to my room, turned off the lights, closed my eyes, and listened to the album all the way through. Guys, if you buy this album, do yourselves a favor and do that, dont listen to the singles first, or even skip past a song because its boring. Instead, just let the music flow over you, and appreciate how the songs bleed into one another and create one great listening experience. Okay, that may sound a little over-the-top, this isn't a masterpiece or anything, all im saying is appreciate the sound that Korn obviously worked hard to achieve. Also, I know iv covered the fillers in full, but this was by no means a rush-job. I know that this album came out only a year after Follow the Leader, but this is way more mature and way more serious. The fillers are there for a reason, and to be honest, I would rather have them there than have only 11 or 12 songs on there, wouldn't you. Finally, I believe that this is Korn's second-best album because it is also their least mainstream, which is a nice break after Follow the Leader.
This was my first introduction to Korn in 1999 and I absolutely loved it. So much that I purchased this CD because my old one is worn. This CD helped me through some very difficult times because I could relate to much of what the CD contains. You can actually feel what he is saying in the music. Very emotional and heartfelt, but hard and heavy at the same time...Awesome!!
This cd takes you into the issues that dwell inside the mind of Jon Davis. The lead singer of KoRn. In alot of peoples opinion its KoRns best album. Any one who feels torchier'd by the world or society will love this album.
While Korn isn't the hardest band I have ever heard... this is definatly some hard stuff. Great CD! Also very interesting side note... didn't know there was a contest for the Cover Art. Interesting options they had to choose from!
I've written a lot of reviews for a lot of albums but I don't think I've ever seen so many people not know what the review section is for as I have with this CD. Reviews are to let other people know what the CD is about. Not how your customer service was or how your CD came all scratched up. That's what the feedback section is for.
As for the CD...well, I kind of dig it. I'm not a huge Korn fan but I enjoy this album.
