Review by Ken
3½ stars out of 4

When Korn came out of nowhere in 1995 with the unflinching, take-no-prisoners attitude of their first album, nobody knew what to make of the band's eclectic mix of hard rock, rap, reggae, death metal and even bagpipes. But with such hard-hitting songs like 'Faget', 'Blind' and 'Helmet In The Bush'; Korn proved themselves incredibly hard to ignore. The band's music effectively tapped into the pain and frustration of life as felt by millions of angry and disenchanted youth; and in the process won legions of fans who eventually helped bring their debut album to platinum status. Although the profane lyrics and controversial song topics make this unsuitable for everyone; those who like their hard rock spiced up with rough hip-hop grooves and plenty of street attitude should pick this up immediately. Interestingly enough, lead singer Jonathan Davis can be heard openly weeping at the end of the album's final track; "Daddy", a pained, gut-wrenching song about incest. For all their aggressive fury, it's nice to know that Korn still have a sensitive side.
