Just Bought Every KoRn CD...

Tue, May 22, 2012 at 11:25 PM

So, I am not sure if everyone read my introductory post or not but I live in Bakersfield, CA the home of KoRn. I was a pretty big fan of them back in the day growing up but in recent years kind of stopped following them after Take a Look in The Mirror. Well to cut a long story short, I just purchase all 10 studio albums off of eBay for $68. I am pretty stoked as I ordered the special editions of a few and am looking forward to hearing the extra material and trying to get into them again. I had a quick question though, what do you all think about each of their albums individually? Are they all equally good? Some better than others? Or are some not worth buying at all? Interested to hear your feedback.

    Well said. i think thats almost exactly how i feel. except i believe that they still have got that old school korn sound in them without Head or David. They just havent found it yet. I have faith in them . one of these days they will come out with a LIFE IS PEACHY 2 ALBUM . I think that the untilted one couldve been better. Starting over is an awsome song. i thought the whole album was going to be like that but it didnt turn out that way. Korn III had good stuff in it too , oildale , great song. I really hope that on a future album that they incoperate the style of singing they had for Life is Peachy.

    One more thing. when i said the stuff about Head and David i didnt mean that they are replaceable cuz there not, i miss them in korn they are both great at what they do but with or without them i think the other guys have done a great job with the music.Every band has a slump and they will get stronger agian. just give them time.AND AS FOR THE NEW ALBUM................ WELL DONE!! I LOVED IT:)

    I think that their next album will probably be another experiment more that likely. I would say that it will probably be a mix of Korn III and TPOT. What about you guys?

    Honestly, I think you're right. I mean Korn never go back anyways, unless they're pleasing I.E. TALITM and KIII, but an album hybrid of the Rawness and Energy of KIII and the Maturity/Dubkorn/Production of TPOT to me sounds like it will be a fuckin killer album! KIII/POT hybrid FTW!!!!!

    Truth for me at least is that every Korn album is quite different in the sound that it's really impossible to say some are better than others sometimes....I have my favourites, but alwways find some of my least faves are someone else's first favourites..which I love because it shows that each has it's own merits and cracking tracks to get right into...for me my favourite is still issues for the memories and the emotions it rakes up inside, and the sound, but I could never leave the wacky sounds of LIP and KORN...they just define everything and leave that giddy smile on all the time...but so glad you re-found the guys, they're worth a second chance ;)

    Take care

    ...be yourself, let you come through...

    Most of their albums are pretty good but I don't like Korn III or the Untitled one from a few years ago. The special ones are Follow the Leader, Self Titled, and Life is Peachy.

    I bought all their albums for time to time at best buy and barnes and noble. The 1st and 2nd albums (KoRn and Life Is Peachy) were mabey their most emotional and raw albums. Their 3rd album (Follow the Leader) was an amazing rap-metal type of album. their 4th one (Issues) was unique and cool it had the most use of JD's Bagpipes. The 5th one (untouchables) was when they started to sound completely diffrent,and i thought it was amazing The DVD had some cool music vids.. their 6th one (take a look in the mirror) was the last one with head (lol im sure you know cause you said something about that) and I would have to say its my favorite album. Their 7th one (See You on the other side) was when most people started not liking korn. I think thats bull they still make good music and they do a very good job putting alot of effort, emotion, and passion in their music. this was more of a pop-rock type of album I thought it was pretty neat and catchy. Their 8th one (Untitled) was Pretty unique too, I personally liked the songs Hold On, Evolution, and Killing. Their 9th one (KoRn III: Remember Who You Are) was one of my favorite albums, it was a little bit like their 1st 2 albums lyrically, but not as heavy. their 10th and newest one (The Path of Totality) was awesome, They made a new Dubstep-Metal type of genre and it was just amazing. I COMEPLETELY agree with you, the encounter dvd showed that they are still very passionate about their music, and very ongoing, emotionaly, and effortful.

Get the latest from Korn!
