Love 'em or despise 'em, you've got to give Korn props for kick-starting a new metal movement that blends aggressive hip-hop rhythms with roaring hate-metal riffs. In the wake of the band's 1994 debut, many like-minded groups cropped up, including Deftones, Snot, and Limp Bizkit. But with the release of Korn's disappointing 1996 sophomore effort, Life Is Peachy, the imitators seemed likely to usurp the innovators. Maybe that's why Follow the Leader is so crafty and inspired. Instead of continuing on cruise control, Korn have diversified their formula, experimenting with mood and dynamics while intensifying their melody and noise thresholds. "Got the Life" blends a seductive disco beat and vocals reminiscent of "Epic"-era Faith No More with oppressive guitar chimes and squawks. "Children of the Korn" features a propulsive rap beat, throbbing bass lines, and angry guest vocals by Ice Cube. But just when Korn's groovin' psychedelic fury starts to make listeners see red, the band lashes out with "All in the Family," a hilarious rap-metal diss-fest duet with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, that proves Korn are much more than the sum of their rage. --Jon Wiederhorn

Well, I, for one, am all for change. I except it. That's why Follow The Leader is one of my favorite albums by Korn. It has a strange pop vibe to it, such as in songs like Got The Life and Freak On A Leash. There's even a few rap songs on the album, like in "Children Of The Korn" and "All In The Family".
However, Korn doesn't just dump their metal sound. It's all still there. Even though Korn changed doesn't mean that they are a terrible band now. They still have rocking tunes and great guitar.
If you like Korn, definatly buy this CD, despite all the crap that people are saying about it. It's a great Korn album to have in a CD collection.
1-12 are silence: What's with this? Each of the first 12 tracks are each just five seconds of silence. Hitting the skip button 12 times is tiring. It would have been much better if this was at the end.
13) It's On (10/10): A good opener (if you don't count the 12 silent tracks). Nice opening guitar riff and lyrics.
14) Freak On A Leash (10/10): My favorite Korn song EVER! This is the first song from Korn I ever heard, and it remains my favorite. The entire song is great, and it gets even better at the 3 minute point when it becomes really heavy.
15) Got The Life (9/10): This song never gets boring. Great drumming throughout the entire thing.
16) Dead Bodies Everywhere (10/10): Another great song. The guitars are amazing. My second favorite song on the CD.
17) Children of the Korn (1/10): This song is alright for about the first minute, and then it just goes downhill from there.
18) B.B.K. (8/10): A good song with great vocals. A great chorus as well.
19) Pretty (8/10): Another good one. This song is really creepy. I like towards the end when it gets much heavier.
20) All In The Family (2/10): This song is pretty pointless. It's just Jon and Fred Durst dissing eachother. It gets old really fast. The only reason I gave this song two stars is because the opening guitar riff is really good.
21) Reclaim My Place (7/10): I just never really liked this song for some reason.Read more ›
The album has a few diamonds in the rough with memorable performances on It's On, Pretty, and My Gift To You. Other decent tracks include Dead Bodies Everywhere, and the song which should have negated Freak on a Leash from being on the album and taken its place, Seed.
All in all, it's a mediocre effort, that after a few listens sounds like one really long song (and that's not a good thing). In my opinion this album marks the beginning of Korn's downfall. Truthfully, Life is Peachy is weaker than Follow the Leader, but that's purely because it sounded exactly like Korn's self titled debut, although some people liked that.
The third star is for their innovation. Despite the overall weak performance, at least it didn't sound like the previous albums.
