Swinging to this while grinding away at year end numbers.......
Good stuff here folks.
Because sometimes its just that kind of day...
I feel bad that my musical tastes are not as refined as all y'all(well...not really). I always buy every Korn cd. As co-standard bearers of the Nu-Metal genre(Deftones have to be included there) they share the misfortune of being instantly recognizable, therefore borderline repetitious. If you disagree look at Godsmack/Sevendust/Disturbed/etc. These are bands that diminish themselves with every new cd, simply because it all blends together after a while. Korn has always tried to create NEW music when they do put out an album. This continues/expands on that. It still has the Korn touchstones, but it is almost as if they are playing with some weird sort of electronic symphony. It makes the overall effort sound almost mechanically dreamlike. I listened to it 3 times back to back and it works really well as a whole. Even if you only marginally like Korn this is certainly worth a listen just because it's different, not LuLu different, because folks who like this kind of music can only bend so far, but different nonetheless. ReKommend!
Because I have to be fully invested in listening to it. I love this album.
My new obsession is a band called Volbeat. A band that combines The Misfits, Metallica, Social Distortion and Johnny Cash and makes great, great music.
