Review by Ken|
2½ stars out of 4
By the time album No.2 came out, there was already a sizable number of Korn
devotees hungry for new music from the band. This frenzied anticipation
helped to propel LIFE IS PEACHY to No. 3 on the Billboard charts in its
first week out. Obviously, Korn still know how to rock and groove. But the
overall feel of their second album is that it just seems so rushed and
uneven; as if the band had an abundance of B-sides to be rid off and so they
dumped it all on this album. Still, the album does have its moments of
furious rock energy, as displayed on tracks like "Chi", "No Place To Hide"
and the scattershot remake of Ice Cube's "Wicked". Good, although not quite
the follow-up everyone was expecting. Almost forgot- similar to the first
album, Jonathan cries once again at the end of the album's final track;
I believe that this cd is one of their bests. Korn has a completely different tone to it, but they always do.
