Product Description

Product Description


Combining the stop-start rhythms of Helmet, the hip-hop assault of Rage Against the Machine and the brooding vocals of Faith No More, Bakersfield, California band Korn concocted a golden formula that would reanimate the dormant corpse of heavy metal. The band's self-titled debut is a teenage-fantasy-endorphin-rush--a subversive noisefest as angry and hostile as Slayer but with a propulsive groove perfect for skateboarding, vandalism, or jumping up and down until you're nauseous. Songs like "Blind," "Clown," and "Shoots and Ladders" blend dark, bleak riffs with head-spinning guitar effects and scream-and-response choruses. But even at their most vitriolic, Korn imbue their blustery music with a cathartic element of fun. --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars best korn cd July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an awesome debut by Korn, and in my opinion their best album. The music is so aggressive and fearless and I just love their signature sound.
Here are the best songs:
Blind- great opener and hit that started it all. Are u ready?
Clown- great guitars and overall kick ass song
Divine- great chorus and vocals and overall just awesome, possibly my favorite along with clown
Shoots and Ladders-nice change with the bagpipes, and i love the end with the thrashing guitars and drums
the other songs are all very good too, but i just mentioned these few because they are just awesome
Overall: this is a great cd with almost no flaws, that started a revolution in music ,new metal, too bad present day stuff isnt as good as this.
Buy this cd it is a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Korn's Best July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Korn's self-titled is an excellent debut album, rivaled only by, in my opinion, Queens of the Stone Age's debut. This is my favorite Korn album. My second favorite is "Untouchables," followed by "Life Is Peachy," "Take A Look In The Mirror," "Issues," and last but definitely not least, "Follow The Leader." All of these albums were great, but the self-titled is the one that started it all. The songs and my reviews of them are:
1) Blind (10/10): Beginning with quiet cymbals puncuated by heavy guitars followed by a great guitar riff and good vocals make this one of the best songs by Korn. Possibly my favorite on the entire CD, this song is just about perfect and it's an excellent intro.
2) Ball Tongue (10/10): A nice opening guitar riff. The vocals during the chorus are almost impossible to understand. A great song all the way through.
3) Need To (10/10): Tied with "Blind" as my favorite song on the CD. The guitars in this song sound very different from most other Korn songs. The vocals and drumming are amazing.
4) Clown (8/10): The first 45 seconds are pretty funny. A good guitar riff, but I never really liked this song that much. I like the chorus though.
5) Divine (9/10): A very fast, short song. It packs a lot of punch in that short amount of time. Great vocals.
6) Faget (7/10): This isn't a bad song, but, as with "Clown," I don't really like it very much. The chorus is pretty good, as is the drumming in the beginning.
7) Shoots And Ladders (9/10): I love the bagpipes for the first minute! This song is basically a really creepy nursery-rhyme. Nice drumming and guitars.
8) Predictable (8/10): There's nothing really special about this song. It's not bad but it's not great either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kornikopia of Nu Metal Pioneers Aug. 14 2009
Format:Audio CD
Unless you've been locked in a basement since early 1994, you've at least heard of Korn. They are the pioneers of "Nu-Metal". At the time this debut album was released (1994), there was nothing else like it in the world. They had invented a new sound. Heavy metal, mixed with R&B and Rap. This is my favorite album of all. The music and emotionally charged lyrics take you on a dark journey through lead singer Jonathan Davis' troubled childhood. He is literally in tears at the end of the last track. No only is the music heavy, but it also very melodic. This is music you will never forget. Just buy it, you won't be disappointed. And if you love it, get their next album, which is Life is Peachy. It's a great follow-up album to this one, and I think it went gold. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Korn (late review) Aug. 13 2007
By ...
Format:Audio CD
Korn were always credited for populrizing the nu-metal landscape, rapidly changing the nu-metal landscapes for a decade. Their debut is a fiery ball of rage, ready to detonate on contact: danger, do not approach me labels this album with a passion.

There are no weakness on this cd, despite what people say, unlike Untouchables, this is cd that you will forever treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous First-Timer June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oh, be still my beating heart!! This entire album is just full of great riffs, awesome beats, great transitions, and just awesome bit**n music. First half is better than second to me. Rundown as follows:
Blind - 9/10 A little slow for my taste but the changes in vocals for Jon are very well done. Goes from a spoken word to angst singing. Gives a lot of depth to his songs.
Ball Tongue - 9/10 Energy for you. Love his singing-through-clenched-teeth sound. Also like the scatty-type vocals in the chorus.
Need To - 9/10 Energy is great and I love the rasp of Jon's vocals. Love the drums and the emotion near the last 1/3rd of the song. Clench teeth again. Mmm!
Clown - 10/10 Love the fact that they left the pre-song practice in the track. Fun 45 seconds of hearing the band speak out how the song is going to be played. Afterwards, I just JAM on the chorus of this song. Easily one of my favorites.
Divine - 10/10 Energy!! Faster lyrics, faster beat, driving drums. Vocals go from full-voice to the softer spoken chorus. Good mix. Good drum beat and vocals that sound like a threat in middle of song before the filler comes in and vocals return to fuller power.
Faget - 10/10 AWWWWWWW shyyyyyyyit!! LOVE the beginning drum beat. A little more medium-paced but good vocal power and great drums during vocals.
Shoots and Ladders - 10/10 Great intro with bagpipes (!) which Jon knows how to play. A cutie little song making a play on different nursery rhymes. Anytime you can make a song like this you know you have talent. Bagpipes, nu-metal music, and nursery rhymes with some heavy breathing for good measure. Heavy guitar riffs add to the appeal of this song. Even some scat-sounding vocals in the chorus.
Predictable - 6/10 Song never quite grabbed me.

2.0 out of 5 stars The album that set metal back 10 years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite pathetic, to be honest
I don't really understand the hype behind this album. I hear the fans shout about how angst-filled and heavy this album is, but it just sounds so forced and tame. Read more
