      I like this album a lot. And there are numerous reasons for it. I think that Korn managed to intensify their emotional strength on this album. Their previous album was rather dark, and very aggressive, of course, and it dealt rather well with serious emotional subjects. This album does that even more.

      Somehow, the emotional energy is intensified even more on this record, and there is more power, and more honesty in the delivery. The music feels very immediate. Even though the band were beginning to acquire mainstream fame, they seemed to put out not a record that would suit the mainstream better, but a record that would


      express their artistic and personal ideas better. I like what they did to their sound on this record.

      The debut Korn album had a rather raw, natural trash metal sound. This album continues the trend set by the previous album, but the end result, from my point of view, is more successful. The guitars are really a lot more powerful and brighter on this record than they are on their 1994 debut. Basically, Korn have taken all the strongest moments of their debut album, and made them even more convincing, made them better.

      It is not only about the guitars, it is about all the instruments present on

      this record. The drums are really crazy on this record. I think that this album has one of the best drum sections you will ever find on a metal album. The drummer sounds like he is going crazy.

      You begin to wonder where he gets enough energy to drum so aggressively, and the second thing you begin to wonder about is how they ever managed to record the drums so clearly and sharply. I sometimes put this record on and listen to the drums alone. Bass is good as well. All the instruments are good, and the vocals… The vocals are fantastic as well.

      Jonathan Davies sounds really ...

      strong and convincing on this record. His voice is at some moments sounds soft, with him revealing his vulnerabilities, like he does, for example, in the quiet section of No Place to Hide. And it is the mere fact that the songs on this album have frequent quiet sections, which is telling. The music is so aggressive and heavy that it begins to feel like overload, like the intensity is so high, the band members themselves are not able to sustain it, so they need to quiet down, a moment to have a little rest, only to renew their blast reinvigorated.

      This album has so much power. I

      like all the songs on this album, even though, objectively, some of them could be classed as weird and redundant. Here I am probably referencing to the instrumental track, the cover tracks called Wicked and Lowrider. But all the other songs are pure trash hardcore metal that is now iconic.

      The best songs for me personally are: Chi, Good God, No Place to Hide and A. D. I. D.

      A. S. The first three songs on this list entertain me with their pure aggression, whereas the last one is also rather catchy in some way. Korn became a huge band, and I am not surprised by that, because, they were relying on some huge albums, like this one.
