SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE BIATCHES!

...I don't get the big fuss about this album! I never really understood why fans HATE SYOTOS so much! I mean sure it has a few 'filler' tracks (Twisted transistor, 10 or a 2 way, Getting off, For no one) and hardly any Fieldy click bass but other than that I think this album was great! It's a grower! So damn groovy and creative; and to me it was the perfect combination with experimentation on their signature sound! Plus it had some great mature lyrics from JD! Sure it don't have Head on it; but does that make it bad? No...no it does not! Munky is just as a brilliant guitar player as Head and creative! He wrote some really solid Riffs for SYOTOS without Head. Plus, all those SIIIIIICK B-sides! Honestly I think it was KoRns best album without Head and their best since Untouchables! I can say I enjoy it far better than KoRn III, Untitled, and TPOT. Their best album overall, definitely not, I can admit that but It's still a great record in my eyes or ears lol, definitely in my top 5! I may be in the minority but this is my opinion so please respect it and I'll respect yours! :) Don't worry SYOTOS, ^^this guy loves you! Peace....oh and it has sick album artwork!

Rating: 8/10

Best qualities:
-Mature/different lyrics
-Great overall sound and production value
-Nice solid guitar riffing
-Bagpipes and 'scat'
-Hella groovy
-Some songs have these awesome Intros and Outros to them
-Lots of Bonus tracks
-Awesome Artwork

Worst qualities:
-A few bad filler tracks
-Simple song structures at times (verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, the end!) can be a bit repetitive!
-No signature Fieldy click bass (he did deliver some awesome bass lines though)
-Some bonus tracks way better than regular album tracks

    I my self LOVE this album, and thought it was 50/50 with "Take a look in the mirror", These albums got me into KORN, & I think the early ones were shit. But that is just my point of view. I still play SYOTOS more often then POTY(path of totality). There new album is going to take some beating.=)

    i agree, i never understood why people find SYONTOS and TPOT "bad' albums. I like the groove that SYONTOS had and i like the rythm and, although i dont really like dubstep, i found the blend on TPOT incredible to listen to. Admitedly, i think Untitled is an album they didn't preform as 'Korny' in. But if you take away pre-concieved notions about Korn's sound and listen to it as just another album, it actually is a quality album. It doesn't sound like 'Korn' but it is still bloody good. TPOT for me is the best album since TALITM (i LOVE TALITM).
