CD Review: KORN

The Deal: Rockers release eighth studio album, following up success of their Unplugged release and 2005's See You On The Other Side.

The Good: I'd almost call this some of Korn's best work. When taken on its own, the album is damn good. It hits hard with heavy riffs, has Jonathan Davis' signature screams and isn't afraid to experiment with new sounds and samples -- including the return of Davis' bagpipes. Even the slow moments on the album ("Kiss") are solid. With drummer David Silveria on hiatus, they couldn't have found better replacements -- Terry Bozio played on the album while Slipknot's Joey Jordison and Sevendust's Clint Lowery have been filling in on the Family Values Tour. Munky and Fieldy remain with the group.

The Bad: While the album is one of the band's best, it's ridiculous that so much focus in press releases is being aimed at the lack of a title. Who cares?! I wasn't crazy about "Hushabye."

The Verdict: It took a couple of listens, but it's definitely grown on me. Put it in the CD player and enjoy!
