    Editorial Review

    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 ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars WOW! THEY ACTUALLY KILLED METAL
    Yes, your read that right. Korn have killed metal. Let me get something straight, i'm not one of those Death Metal or Black Metal fans, but this is a LOT WORSE. I mean, WHAT THE HELL?! RAP AND METAL!?! Well, you might expect it. After all, only a rap group would name their band 'Korn' or make an album entitled 'Follow The Leader' or 'Issues'.This has killed metal. Slipknot I can digest at times, when hearing them on the radio. At least they have some DECENT guitar work. Its nothing spectacular, but you can listen to it without your ears bleeding! But Korn? Well, lets just say this sucks and leave it at that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic
    One of the best rock albums ever.Period.Korn put out a bunch of good hard rock albums since then, but this is where they are the most real, the most angry, the most disturbing.Every song is great and furious except maybe track 10 and even that has a cool intro.The speech in the middle of "Faget" is a classic rock moment, as is "Daddy".They're all good!Korn didn't have to put on masks to get their point across.I also like their stance in the songs; they're not the violent agressors, they're the opressed and hated and picked on.

    Now I like some underground metal, but these morons who get on and write about the "Real Metal" don't kow what they're talking about.They think that grunting and screeching and trying to sound monstorous is cooler and more disturbing than anything else.But folks, that grindcore/standard death is just as cliched and stupid as is modern nu-metal.You're backing a sinking ship, guys.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great CD
    Jonathan Davis Is A Truly Skilled Vocalist And Songwriter It Shows In Many Of Korn's Early CDs. Many Other Bands Have Tried To Follow In Korn's Footsteps Only To Fall And Crumble. i Bought This CD For The Songs Blind, Clown, And Shoots And Ladders. I Was in Shock After Listening To The CD The First Time. Korn Had A Unique Style (Until Some Other Bands Tried To Copy It And Screwed It All Up Them Dumbasses) That Was Unmatched By Any Band I Have Ever Heard Before. Thier Were Some Amazing Vocals Wraped Up In Some Loud Powerful Music with A Bass So Low it Could Do Something. Uh I Don't Remember Where I was going With This. So Heres The Reveiw.

    4-0 out of 5 stars korns 3rd best
    this is korns third best under thier debut and life is peachyi guese you could say they got worst the later they came out.the reason this is thier third is beacause theres good songs bad songs the good songs would be got the life,freak on aleash,justin,seed.reclaim myplace deadbodies everywere,and my gift to you.THE bad songs are cameltosis,all in the family,and children of the korn but jons parts are good.this is good cd but compared to thier debut its ok this is a review for follow the leader i screwed up

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as their first...
    I bought "Life is Peachy" the day it came out, and I must admit I was a little disappointed.I'm not saying it's not a great disc, because it is...it just doesn't touch their self-titled debut.As stupid as it sounds (this being Korn and all), this album was a little too muddy for my tastes (which is why I only gave it a 4 out of 5).If they'd have spent a little more time on post-production, it would have been a 5 out of 5.

    However, this IS a must have for a Korn fan.There are a few weak tracks ("Swallow" and "K@#*%!" come to mind), but tracks like "Good God", "Mr. Rogers", and "No Place to Hide" more than make up for it.Head's rendition of "Low Rider" is classic, and I'm sure EVERYBODY has heard "A.D.I.D.A.S." by now (we tried to get that track played at our senior prom, but the fascist teachers wouldn't let us).If you're a true KoRn fan chances are you probably already own this album, if not, well...you know what to do.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Sophomore Effort
    Before Korn became way too damn popular in 1999, this CD was released. This tends to tear away from the brutal feel from their self-titled and brings more of a Red Hot Chili Peppers feel. "A.D.I.D.A.S." is really raunchy, but the guitar work is just brilliant. "No Place To Hide" kicks ass, as well as "Chi" and some other songs I can't think of titles of. The version of "Lowrider" is a crackup, enough said. This album is not sold out. This is why it is another good album from Korn. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    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 ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Korn's Last Great Album
    Korn was a great band.This was their last five star albums, afterwards the radio popped them into the spotlight and has practically killed them, thou while they cans till make good music, they can't replicate the atmosphere and perfection they had on the first 3 albums.This is the last of those three.Jon's emotion is great on this album and I am one who can relate to him.This album was the height of their nu-metal days and is really the only true "nu-metal album" that I have and enjoy.By true nu-metal I mean evolving rap and rock and this has the most of that, out of all their albums and pulls it off the best.The days of Nu-metal are practically dead, so Korn trying to do any more rap songs, like Play Me from TALITM is just flat out wrong.The only songs I do not like here are Cameltosis and Reclaim my Place.By the way Earache my Eye (the hidden track) is with Cheech Marin as guest and is a Cover of a Cheech and Chong Song.Though Fred Durst appears on All in the Family as it is quite funny and they basically rap and insult each other,I don't detest it like some others do.What makes it even funnier are the insults themselves, they really reflect the days of 1998 with references to Hanson and Austin powers.

    Follow the Leader isn't for everybody, either you love it or you hate it.There is no way around it.One problem I feel is that on My Gift to You (one of my favorite Korn songs but still flawed) is that Jon Davis doesn't break down at the end and lead to crying like in the past 2 records though he comes close to it.Ever since then, Korn hasn't been able to replicate their sound.They lost their edge as soon as they got too much into the Radio.Korn was once a great band, but now they are drying up, Jon's gotten fat, and guitarist head has run off to find god, la de da.

    People should remember that Korn was once a great band, truly great and had a huge fan base for a reason.Now People are constantly bashing Korn for a variety of reasons.One of which is because it's easy to just say "Korn Sucks".Their old stuff is all Gems and since Issues there has been the smell of filler in the air.Now when people think of Korn they think of the new Korn and not the old Korn.This actually surprised me once I found this out, as a younger friend of mine was shocked when I played the song Blind for them.They were shocked that it was the same band.That's how out of touch people are now, it's quite sad.Once you hear a radio song you assume that the rest of their stuff sounds like that.It's quite wrong, either the rest of the CD is really good or it's really bad, and the record companies are ONLY interested in money, not in the music.That's the situation of today.

    Korn was able to express something that no one else could replicate.And now they themselves can't even replicate it.They might as well release a B-sides and rarities collection from that era (which they have plenty of material from), as that would definitely earn the 5 stars that they once earned from me and would make the world turn their ears again, but perhaps we wouldn't want that.Korn is best staying underground or hidden or whatever they were back in the good old days.

    Feeling bored by my length review?Well it's not nearly as long as the two for the self title and Life is Peachy (my personal favorite), which I had to shorten as they were more then 1000 words.If you liked this review and album I suggest checking those out as well, but you may have to do a bit of digging through my reviews to find them.But as to my main point here; this is good Korn and a good album, buy it if you like it, remember it's either hit or miss.

    1-0 out of 5 stars korn are a bowl of peaches
    and a mixed sort of other fruits. tra tra tra transvestite. follow your idol the one in korn who's bisexual. he is the next michael jackson. he's going to molest all his boy fans. he'll make you guys hardcore after you suck him off. tra tra transvestite. and then as korn's roadies, you can be korn's sex slaves.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another exellent korn creation
    This is definatly kick ass album.
    Where do i start.
    all in the familly is a classic metal/rap song.
    probably the best Fred was ever in.
    children of the korn is a great colaboration between metal and hip hop.
    2 of my favorites korn and Ice cube.
    cameltosis is another great colaboration.
    This album just tops off korns great albums.
    it's a must to have. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Issues are one thing Korn singer Jonathan Davis has in spades. On the quintet's fourth album, Davis spews forth about misery, hate, happiness, pain, paranoia, and other primal issues, all set to an appropriately dark soundtrack. From "Dead" (which begins with Davis's trademark bagpipes in a sort of choral musical setting), to the first single, "Falling Away from Me," the vocalist's quavery, edgy, manic delivery sets the tone for this 16-song outing. Not as modern sounding or melodic as 1998's Follow the Leader, Issues is a throwback to earlier, more metallic Korn. If possible, Issues has an even creepier vibe than its three predecessors, thanks partially to eerie guitar lines and vocal effects, especially potent on "Let's Get This Party Started." Twisted, cohesive, and epic, Issues comes through for Korn's fans, who relate to the band's cathartic musical exorcisms and aggro, bottom-heavy rage, commercialism be damned. (Please note: You may receive any one of the album's four different covers.) --Katherine Turman ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Arguably The Best Album I have heard...
    Let me start by saying that my favouite albums include -

    The Cure "Disintegration"
    Incubus"Morning View"
    Dream Theater "Train Of Thought"
    KoRn "KoRn"
    Pearl Jam "Ten"
    Pearl Jam "Viatology"
    Cranberries "To The Faithful Departed"
    Cocteau Twins "Heaven Or Las Vegas"
    Tool "Lateralus"
    Atif Aslam "Jal Pari/Aadat"


    What is common among Issues and some of these albums is the atmosphere the music creates.There's this dark yet more alive and descriptive powerful sea of emotion in Issues that disconnects me from my surroundings. There are more things I can say to try and comprehend the hellbouding streak of emotion it allows me to reach.

    "Dead" sets the heart of this record and it leads into "Falling Away From Me" which is a cryout. "Trash" is something only a true KoRn fan can relate to or a music critique who's not busy bashing each and every artist who's remotely popular.
    "4U" is haunting to say the least."Beg For Me" makes me want to realise my dream of being a drummer and "Make Me Bad" is a slam of sorts. I wish MTV wasnt allowed to use the music for their dumb shows."Counting" is a roar that's somehow incomplete. "Hey Daddy" is kinda distorted but alive. "Dirty" is the perfect song to describe the flow of the album."Am I going Crazy" isnt a filler so sit down and let the music over ride you.


    I wish KoRn wasnt looked at as a band that came out with TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR. I love KoRn for Issues and their debut.I respect all the work uptil and including Issues.This is easily the best album in whatever category you put it in. I don't listen to it every day or every weak of my life. I don't care if teens were influenced by this.

    What a lot of people forget is it's difficult to make a follow up album to ISSUES.Don't let them drown this jewel of a heatbeat increaser.

    I've said enough.Hope it helps.

    -KoRnkid (laugh it off funny men)

    People who like this album do try the following,

    Sinch - Sinch
    Machine Head - Hellalive
    Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power
    Devin Townsend - Accelerated Evolution

    3-0 out of 5 stars hhhmmmm
    I really don't know where to start with these guys.
    Number one, I'm not a big metal rock fan, but I got this c.d. at C.D. Warehouse for $3 just to give it a try.

    I first heard "Falling Away From Me" on South Park when Korn did the special apperance. I kinda liked the song.
    Then I got a taste of the album itself.

    "Trash" isn't so bad. The talks about suicide are a bit much.

    "Wake Up" is one of my favorite songs. Like when it calms down during the verses.

    And last but not least, "Hey Daddy" I can somewhat relate to.

    I must say, now I know why people kill themselves and go off the deep end. Music like this.
    But don't get me wrong, everyone gets depressed. Including the interludes, this album isn't so bad but this will be my first and last Korn album. Simply because there's only but so much I can take.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as people say it is...
    A lot of people say that this album sucked. A mojority of thos people were not Korn fans. If you are not a Korn fan you will probably not like this album. I actaully rate this album 3rd of all of Korn's album, and I am a Huge Korn fan. The one minute songs is what really influences people's opinions. I have to admit that yes they do kinda suck except for 4 U. That song actually is not bad especially live, I kinda wish they would've made it longer though. Falling Away From Me and Trash are my personal favorites. The rest of the songs the the album are o.k. The songs are not the best out there but they aren't the worst either. I would recommend this album to Korn fans only. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The band that unwittingly begat the current, if waning, rap-metal frenzy, Korn has been semidormant since 1999's multiplatinum Issues, while bands they inspired, such as Linkin Park, have ruled the charts and minds of disenfranchised teens. The wait for Untouchables' 14 cutting cuts is more than worth it, however. The quintet's heavy sound and lyrical angst have not been dulled by success. Singer Jonathan Davis's often agonized, cathartic lyrics and slightly lispy, emotive delivery are as heavy and varied as on previous outings. On the first single, "Here to Stay," which boasts a spooky, Nine Inch Nails feel and Fieldy's aggro, down-tuned bass, Davis growls in pain, "This state is elevating / As the hurt turns into hating / Anticipating all the f---ed up feelings again."

    Among and within songs, Korn move seamlessly and dynamically from gentle, spooky, and lushly melodic to a bass-heavy propulsive, explosive musicality. "Embrace" is almost grandiose and Cult-like in its rock drama, in contrast to the punky, straight-up "Wake Up Hate," on which Davis's vocals are especially creepy and Marilyn Manson-like as he rants: "I'm, I'm filthy/ Wasted piece of s--t/ I am disgusting/ Take me away." Untouchables, with its brutal introspection and hints of misogyny, is sure to earn its parental advisory sticker. But the album is still a must-have: 62 minutes of deeply felt, ultra-intense spewings, a tour de force that will strike a chord with fans and critics alike. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Wow this album is overrated.
    This is officially Korn's worst and most overrated album they have ever put out.The only real Korn song is Here to Stay.The rest of the other songs are all plagued with problems.Either the choruses are strong and the verses are weak or visa versa.The record in general is overproduced resulting in what sounds to be the neutering of Davids drums.The snare hasn't packed a punch since Follow the Leader.Other then Here to Stay I constantly feel the urge to press the skip button.Jonathon Davis obviously spent enough time writing these lyrics, but it's the way he sings them at some points that make me cringe.The thing is that with Untouchables, the lyrics were great but the music felt incomplete.With Issues, I felt it was the other way around due to the fact that they had less time to work on it.Even though this leaked onto the internet, I'm not surprised it did not sell well, which is why they re-released it in a limited version with a bonus DVD.Also theuntitled remix of here to stay kills the original.If you are a big korn fan and for some reason do not have this cd yet, then I suggest hunting down a copy of the limited version with the DVD (get it used and cheap) and that way you can avoid listening to the god awful remix because thankfully they removed it on that version.Korn tried an experiment here and it was a complete failure, which the exception of Here to Stay.That song alone bumps my rating up to two stars.Don't get me wrong, I have been a really big Korn fan for a long time, but lately they lost their edge somewhere around Issues.I doubt they will ever be able to return successfully to the days of old (especially with the loss of Head), but we can still listen to their old stuff and hear something truly great and original that no one ever seemed to replicate.Sadly that fact looks like it can now be said about themselves.They can still make good music, but nothing will ever top their early stuff. Hoped this helped.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Korn records
    This record consists of songs, not surprisingly, about abuse and depression.For this reason, especially when one considers that the same could be said of any other Korn album, the lyrics are a bit of a disappointment.

    Despite this, Untouchables is the best in a long string of great records.It scraps rapping and screaming, settling on a much more effective use of melody.Combined with a perhaps simplified but still effective and primal guitar attack, these melodies make Untouchables one of the most dynamic and dramatic rock releases in recent memory.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Typical Korn, but good.
    As a casual fan, I find "Untouchables" to be mostly for fanatics. Overall I call it good, but there's only three tracks I really find to be great. Coincidentally those are the singles, "Here To Stay", "Thoughtless", and "Alone I Break". All three are excellent. The rest, decent. Other casual fans may want to pass on this album, since two of those three songs are on "Greatest Hits Vol. 1". So, unless you're just dieing to have "Thoughtless", which is awesome, I probably wouldn't touch "Untouchables". ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A great bargain...here's why
    I bought this EP by accident. I was in a Hot Topic store to blow what was left of my wallet on a few T-shirts (One of which happened to be a Korn shirt) and a CD. I didn't have enough for Linkin Park's "Hybrid Theory" but this one caught my eye so I bought it since it was in my price range of ten dollars.

    I took it home, slipped my Korn shirt on and played it all the way through on my little CD player. Yuck. The collective tracks you will hear are mostly re-mixes, with the exception of a live performance (Twist/Chi) and an unreleased track (The painfully bad Jingle Balls, but they were obviously joking around so they deserve the benefit of the doubt). First there's the radio edit of "A.D.I.D.A.S", and if you own "Life Is Peachy" already, you're going to start questioning the value of this EP and what better use those ten dollars could have made.

    The re-mix of "Good God" is completely unrecognizable and the "Got the Life" re-mix happens to be the only track worth listening to along with the live Twist/Chi performance.

    You should probably save your money unless you have a lot to spend and/or want your curiosity to guide you. I wouldn't even recommend this to a die-hard Korn fan.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag
    Whether or not you need Korn's "All Mixed Up" release really depends on how much you follow the band. If you collect their imports and various other releases, and plan to continue, you will most likely scoop up all the material on here elsewhere. However, if you are a Korn fan on a budget, and aren't interested in tracking down all of their minor releases, "All Mixed Up" is a worthwhile purchase. Originally released as a bonus disc for Korn's 1999 album "Issues" is Australia, "All Mixed Up" is a four song collection consisting of three remixes, one live performance and one unreleased studio track. The radio remix of "A.D.I.D.A.S." starts it off. We've all heard this version, it's the same as in the music video (and if you actually have a station that plays it, you heard it on the radio). It's a pretty useless addition. The Dub Pistols remix of "Good God" is definitely not up to par. There are probably more remixes for "Good God" than any other Korn song, and most of them are better than this. The Josh Abraham remix of "Got The Life," however, is probably the best I've heard of the song and is pretty hard to find (appearing only on the out of print "Falling Away From Me (2)" import single). The live performance of "Twist/Chi" is taken from the "Family Values '98" CD and chances are you already own that disc, but it is still a great performance. Finally, the last song, "Jingle Balls," Korn's second Christmas song, actually sounds nothing like Korn. Very interesting to hear, and it is probably worth buying this EP alone for. So there you have it. As I stated before, this release isn't really neccessary for completists, as you can find all this stuff anywhere else, but if you don't plan on scouting out all things Korn, this is a good, wallet-friendly place to stop.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
    This is a good EP, but it's not very good, but it's definatly not a bad EP. Here's a run-down of the songs:

    1. A.D.I.D.A.S. (Radio Edit)-2/5-I hate this version. But the dirty version ownz!!!
    2. Good God (Dub Pistols Mix)-1/5-OMG! What the hell happened? Good God is an awesome song, but this song sucks!
    3. Got the Life (Josh Abraham Remix)-4/5-Wow! A good remix!!!! The song is the same vocally, but the guitars, basses and drums are replaced with techno beats.
    4. Twist/Chi (Live)-4/5-If you own the Family Values Tour '98 CD you should know this song.
    5. Jingle Balls-6/5-Seriously, this is the real reason to buy this thing!!!
    Bottom line:It's a good EP. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars title of review
    The menu setup is so annoying that I only bothered watching half the content of this dvd, even though I paid money for it. You have to navigate your way through a maze of rooms, clicking on a new marker for every 2 minute section of video. I found that trying to work out which rooms I'd already been to, and how to get to the ones I hadn't, was more trouble than it was worth. Watching a dvd shouldn't be this much work.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good but not great
    this dvd is a basically a combo of the classic "who then now" and the new "deuce" program. these combined are great. but for me, where its gets kinda awful is the asylum get-up. it's annoying, big and full of things that are barely interesting...to me at least. now i'm a pretty hardcore koRn fan but these didn't appease me none. i mean, if you want to find something specific, you've got to memorize where to go and that usually takes quite a few steps to do too. to make things even more interesting is the fact that the videos for "clown and "make me bad (sickness in salvation mix)" are edited...why? i don't know. the making of videos ok but are sometimes overdubbed with remixes of koRn songs. there are even easter eggs that are impossible to get to unless you have the instructions but thats easily bypassed by going searching through each title and finding something new and letting it play. it's nice and all to see the majority of the videos unedited but the the extent of the whats there is only the inclusion of the cusswords, except for "a.d.i.d.a.s.". some of the more interesting stuff is the brief little segments after clicking on something, for example the dead girls...thats interesting. i only wish they could've done something more with this dvd than try something that would get old real quick and do like what rammstein did with their 'lichtspielhaus' dvd. ...

    Editorial Review

    If you missed 1998's Family Values tour featuring Incubus, Orgy, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Rammstein, and Korn, fear not: 15 tracks from the aforementioned bands, plus "interludes," add up to well over an hour of neo-metal-angst-rap that can be enjoyed without venturing into a mosh pit. The CD is a cool deal in that it contains the best songs from each lineup, including radio hits such as Orgy's cover of New Order's "Blue Monday," Limp Bizkit's breakthrough version of George Michael's "Faith," and Rammstein's incendiary Germanic ode "Du Hast." Korn's medley of older material and singles from Follow the Leader prove why they're the headliners. In fact, this CD--and the tour itself--was partly based on the accurate assumption that Korn have such a strong influence that any band they tour with must appear Korn-approved kool to the kids. Both Ice Cube and Rammstein seem out of place, though kudos to Korn for including them. Ultimately, Family Values '98 is a great sampler for a metal-rap neophyte. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

    its decent but y is ice cube here he is the worst performer but korn ruled i dont like bizkit orgy was good rammestien was good but only one song dont like incubus

    2-0 out of 5 stars I don't own this, but where is the rammstein?
    I see that Rammstein peformed on this tour, but where are the songs by them? OK, so they have Du Hast, but common, they have like 20 great songs! Korn and Bizkit suck, let us all understand that who aren't 12 year olds. Orgy and Rammstein need more tracks on this album! What is wrong with the people that made this???

    2-0 out of 5 stars must have been an off-night
    i'll be first to say that i was totally unimpressed with the sets by korn and limp bizkit but extremely surprised when orgy played the best set by far on this entire album.like many people i bought it when it first came out in 1998/1999 at which point it quickly earned a place at the bottom of my pile of cd cases. i was still a fan of korn at this point and "nu-metal" in general before it was actually called that.what can i say, it all seems silly and stupid in retrospect (and it probably is) but for about a year it seemed like this kind of music was going to be THE new alternative movement in america; comparisons to nirvana and the seattle sound were rampant in music publications.as we all know, this forecast came to naught and record sales started to slip around the time the three year mark of the 1999 breakthroughs of many of these bands was reached.everyone likes to pretend they weren't picking their jaw up off the floor the first time they heard anything from the first three korn albums now that that kind of music has fallen out of favor into the bottomless pit of passe, but the energy from these bands was definately infectious for the time (except for limp bizkit, who always sucked).the first two orgy albums and first three korn albums still remain a guilty pleasure of mine, having come before they became the generic has-beens they are now.out of all the bands featured on this album, korn seems to be the only one (barring incubus) that even has a single leg left to stand on nowadays.

    anyway, onto the music.most of the people that bought this album way back in 1998 bought it for either the korn or limp bizkit tracks, obviously.limp bizkit sounds ok but their music is another matter.in short, you can't polish a turd.korn, on the other hand, sound genuinely bad on many of the tracks. jonathan davis sings like he has the flu while fieldy seems to have doubled his bass volume when the engineer wasn't looking before the show.munky and head sound buried much farther in the mix than they should be.overall, a sense of muddiness prevails.the shot liver medley is about the only salvagable thing korn did with their alotted time on the album.the opening bagpipe strains of "shoots and ladders" float out ethereally and then proceed to fall into a mishmash of recent and older korn songs.ice cube and rammstein sound about like you'd expect them to, a huge-scale listening party of their album. this is to be expected; they aren't relying largely on unpredictable conventional instruments to create their on-stage sound and as such sound much more cohesive.

    the biggest surprises by far on this entire live album came courtesy of then-newcomers orgy.they were still very much rookies when they played the first family values tour and even now they come across as strikingly tight, cohesive, punchy, and fresh.as such, orgy takes the cake for the best performance on the album.

    case in point, i wouldn't run out and buy this album just because you like the bands on it.many of them have released other live volumes that are generally of higher quality to date.most of the music, although less than 6 years old, sounds sorely dated; especially given the shake-ups in the rock landscape over the past few years. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching Not Buying
    This is one to rent. Rammstein's live performance was spectacular. It's hard to outshine them in that area. When Till whiped out his fake dick and hosed down the audience.... I hope that freaked some people out who'd never heard of the band. Crazy kinky psycho Germans. Good stuff.

    Korn was good too. I loved the All in the Family performance. Definately worth seeing. If you like more than 2 or 3 of the bands, maybe you'd find it worth buying. Like previous reviewers said, there are better DVDs out there for each band. Rammstein fans should definately check out Live Aus Berlin.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best DVD Ever
    First I should say im no fan of Ice Cube Or Limp Bizkit but i must give them credit for groups i dislike alot they did a damn good job on their performances. Orgys set was really good they should of had more time though they played both their hits (blue monday, Stiches) and did revival. I tip my hat to those guys. Rammstein well they were ummm really original with the whole fake ding dong and the fire but whatever. Korn took the cake they were the best doing "Faget" Blind" "A.D.I.D.A.S" and others you all must buy this DVD

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very bad DVD
    This is one of the worst dvds. The performances are bad and the quality is bad. I like Korn, Ice Cube and especially Rammstein, but there are better dvds featuring these artists than this one. And by the way Rammstein rules, watch their concerts on the "live aus Berlin" and "lichtspielhaus" dvds and you will see how a live performance has to look like.

    -> this family values 98 dvd is crap ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The joke's starting to look a little worn around the edges. It's facile to observe that the people who toss the phrase "family values" around don't have Limp Bizkit, Korn, Filter, or Primus in mind when they talk about wholesome entertainment. Well, duh. That said, this a solid collection for those who like the aforementioned bands and their allies, though just about all of this stuff is available in other versions. One highlight is Staind's heavy-duty "Mudshovel," though the best performances overall are from Limp Bizkit, which explains why they provide 4 of the 16 tracks on the album and no other act serves up more than 2. Tracks from Method Man and the Crystal Method weirdly break up the metal that dominates, and there's the obligatory acoustic bonus track, featuring Aaron Lewis of Staind and Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. --Genevieve Williams ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good bands, decent collection.
    I would think this would appeal mostly to those who saw this tour, but it's still a good disc. I don't like it as much as the 1998 tour, but it's still good. "Limp Bizkit" dominates this collection, but there's still good songs from "Primus", "Staind", and "The Crystal Method". The live "Outside" is the bonus song here, and "Durst" also covers "I Would For You", which is an old "Jane's Addiction" song, though it's not near as great as the original. Overall this is good if you like the bands, otherwise it doesn't have much "Value".

    3-0 out of 5 stars hmmm...
    "Family values" is pretty good live album that features some most shining alternative/metal stars from end of century.of course Staind's "Mudshovel" or Primus "Laquer head" are great as other tracks but the appearance of Method man and redman is quite scary.And Korn's is not sounding so good on here,without a kick.they had a bad day or what?
    also the sound is not superb.bass is vanishing somewhere or it tottaly blows your speakers out so you can't hear other instruments.if the production was better than i would give it 1 star more.also - why do we need it? tracks are all like studio versions (except fred durst's "I would for you" that appears only on this cd) and you can get them with better sound on other compilation albums...
    well i have got mixed feelings about it.a good compilation from this tournee.i mean,fans will buy it but i wuoldn't call it a great album.just a compilation.not the strongest one around...

    3-0 out of 5 stars A decent little package.
    Seeing how I have had this CD for two and a half years now and have reviewed the other two Family Values live discs (1998, 2001), I figured what better time than now to review the 1999 disc which, despite it's shortcomings, delivers a great sounding live show. Before I go on in this review, I should mention how crisp and clear the sound quality is on all of the songs. If only all live albums could sound this good.

    The headliners in 1999 were Limp Bizkit, who after being the opening act on the 1998 tour, had finally reached superstardom with two multi-platinum albums under their belts. And what better time than before their 15 minutes of fame was over for them to headline. Really, the band is in top-form on here. All of the LB tracks (sans "I Would For You," a Jane's Addiction cover) draw from "Significant Other," which still stands to date as their most successful (and in my opinion, best) album. Although the song selection is a little weak, they still deliver an excellent performance. I especially enjoyed listening to "Nookie" and "Re-Arranged."

    Korn are also featured on here, but not as extensively as Limp Bizkit, for two reasons: One, Korn were not the headliners and two, Korn only appeared for a few dates on the tour. That being said, however, their selection on here is great. You get a combo of "A.D.I.D.A.S." and "Good God" that just sounds excellent and a nice rendition of "Falling Away From Me" that only suffers from Jonathan's strained vocals (I suspect he had a cold or something).

    Minimally featured are the Crystal Method and the hip-hop duo Method Man & Redman. Crystal Method perform "Keep Hope Alive" and it is the only track of theirs that is on here. I like Crystal Method, but live techno? Kind of pointless. I think the CD could have benefited from more Method Man and Redman, the latter being one of the best and most underrated MC's of the 90's. Their contribution "Da Rockwilder" serves as a nice break in the otherwise alternative/nu-metal clutter.

    Staind give their radio-hit "Mudshovel" a nice performance, andfrontman Aaron Lewis shines on the acoustic track "Outside," which everyone has heard by now and ended up being the song that catapulted them into fame.

    Primus contribute two songs "Lacquer Head" and "My Name is Mud" that are pretty enjoyable, but for the uninitiated, might be boring. They sort of stick out like a sore thumb on this tour, but give a nice performance nontheless.

    Finally, Filter. I have nothing against Filter, and the two songs they contribute are really good songs ("Welcome To The Fold" and "Hey Man, Nice Shot"), but they sound like complete cacophony on here. Really, listening to them perform on this CD I get the impression that they must be the worst live band ever. These tracks will make even die-hard fans cringe.

    So, overall, I think this is a pretty good live CD. Once you can get past the pointless, preachy, typical Fred Durst rambling throughout the booklet, you'll enjoy it. But just like the other two Family Values CD's, it's hit or miss. If you didn't like any of the bands before, this CD won't change your mind, but if you happen to be a fan, you will find something to make you happy on here -- That is, unless you're a Filter fan... ...

    Editorial Review

    Befitting the film's hip goth vibe, its accompanying soundtrack is suitably dark and sexy, with a strong mix of new songs and nü-metal hits. In an interesting move, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis collaborated with composer (and former Oingo Boingo keyboardist) Richard Gibbs on 5 of the CD's 14 tracks, though Davis doesn't sing his songs. Instead, taking those duties are Static-X's Wayne Static on "Not Meant for Me," Disturbed's David Draiman on "Forsaken," Linkin Park's Chester Bennington on "System," Marilyn Manson on "Redeemer," and Orgy's Jay Gordon on "Slept So Long." Most of the Davis-Gibbs collaborations are akin to more atmospheric, dramatic Korn tunes, lent a distinctive personality by each singer, with Manson's being the creepiest-coolest and most aggressive entry. While these adroit alliances make the soundtrack a must-have for each of the band's fans (not to mention the Korn faithful), the previously released cuts are also winners. Deftones' creepy "Change," Papa Roach's angry "Dead Cell," and Disturbed's memorable rage "Down with the Sickness"--in addition to lesser-known, but sinister and titillating offerings from Godhead, Kidney Thieves, Earshot, Tricky, and others--are all worth the price of admission to this "damned" stellar soundtrack. --Katherine Turman ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best soundtracks (4 1/2 stars)
    i agree, the movie pretty much sucked (though stuart was very good), but i think the soundtrack makes up for it. The best songs on this cd are the following:
    Forsaken,(wow)
    System(i honestly think chester's voice is MUCH better here than in LP despite what other people say)
    change(so0o0 sexy)
    Down With the Sickness(though his ranting is seriously hilarious)
    Before i'm dead (i love the kidneythieves)

    The OK ones:
    Not meant for me(eh, his voice could be better. jon does it better)
    Slept So Long ( his voice is sort of annoying. again, jon does it better)
    Redeemer ( i HATE manson doing it, jon's version would make this a favorite)

    The sucky ones:
    Dead Cell (i hate papa roach)
    Penetrate(annoying)
    Cold( wow... how boring lyrically and musically)
    Headstrong ( eh...)
    Body crumbles (eww)
    Excess( eh...)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Introduction to nu-metal
    The movie was horrendous, but I fell in love with the cathartic voice of jonathan Davis and decided to purchase this cd...only to discover that he's not on it!!! So I bought `untouchables' and never looked back...until I was browsing amazon and decided to throw my caution to the wind and try to appreciate the artists that took his place. Here is my low-down on the tracks:

    Not Meant for me- hmm...okay, Wayne of static-X, you can't sing period. Jon was sooooo much better...ahhhh!!!

    Forsaken- As much as I enjoy the voice of David Draiman, he just can compare to the original heartfelt wailings. Oh well, he sounds great on his debut cd, `The Sickness'. I really enjoy most of the tracks, they remind me of bondage games.

    System- I'm not a linkin park fan as I can't stand rap and rock together but I didn't think Chester Bennigtons voice was that bad...until I heard this! He sounds terrible, been straining the vocal cords much? I played this song to a huge linkin park fan and even he was embarrassed by this weak performance.

    Change- Great song, got me onto to deftones. Buy white Pony, its sensational.

    Redeemer-Well done Marilyn Manson! You're the only one that has managed to do these songs any justice. I love you...

    Dead Cell- Ahh papa roach...your song stinks, don't mix rock and rap com-padre!!!

    Penetrate- The lyrics to this interesting song by, umm, Godhead are as stupid as the bands name. I like the song though, who knew!

    Slept So Long- Okay jay Gordon you might have a nice voice and I am sure your 80's sounding band Orgy goes with this kind of singing but show some emotion man! Jesus your supposed to be a miserable vampire forced to walk alone for all eternity! Where's Jon when you need him?

    Down with the Sickness- I like you Draimen I really do, but when I heard the ranting I cringed in embarrassment, which turned into rolling off my bus seat with laughter. It wasn't fair, was it baby.

    Cold- snore...

    Headstrong- Hey its Maynard James Keenan from tool, why the devil did he...Oh no, sorry its his imitation band, Earshot. Original name...

    Body Crumbles- Atrocious song by dry cell.
    Excess- Not a bad beat but the lyrics are laughably bad

    Before I'm Dead- Great song by the kidney thieves. I must get round to purchasing their album.

    Anywhoo! That's my opinion of the tracks. To be honest instead of this cd, I recommend purchasing in its stead: `The sickness' by Disturbed (don't buy `Believe' unless you're down in Christian whack), `Mechanical Animals' & `Antichrist Superstar' by Marilyn Manson. `White Pony'-Deftones, `Mer de noms' by A perfect circle, with songs sung by the lovely voice of Maynard (give it up Earshot) and anything by Korn, though `issues' is the style which he uses in the movie. But ya know, don't let me bias your opinions. Buy this cd as an introduction to nu-metal, if you are unfamiliar with this genre. It may help you define your tastes and introduce you to some great bands. I hope you found my review helpful or at least...mildly entertaining.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!
    This album is totally impressive. I love the film and the music in it absolutely captivated me, so I got it.

    1. 'Not Meant For Me' - this is one of the songs that Lestat performs at his concert, the second one. It is really powerful and the vocals are impressive. 4/5
    2. 'Forsaken' - this is really really good. I love the music in it, and the lyrics are very well written. 5/5
    3. 'System' - it's nice to hear Chester Bennington away from Linkin Park and the rapping. He carries this off really well and is played during the club scene where Akasha attacks. 5/5
    4. 'Change (in the house of flies)' - one of the best songs on the album. It gives me goosebumps, and the vocalist has a beautiful sound. Interesting lyrics though.. 5/5
    5. 'Redeemer' - Manson is the man! He brings a so-so song to life with brilliant vocals and a modern sound. 4/5
    6. 'Dead Cell' - this is during the scene where Jesse is trying to get a chance to see Lestat. It's pretty good for Papa Roach, but not the best song on the soundtrack. 4/5
    7. 'Penetrate' - I don't really like the verses of this song, but the chorus is really catchy. 3/5
    8. 'Slept So Long' - this is the first song that Lestat sings in the concert scene. It's definitely the better of the two. 5/5
    9. 'Down With The Sickness' - Disturbed at their finest, this song is a masterpiece, and when it plays at my favourite club The Cathouse, everyone goes mental. 5/5
    10. 'Cold' - I'd never heard Static-X before, but this song is one of my favourites. 5/5
    11. 'Body Crumbles' - this song is really cool. 5/5
    12. 'Excess' - most people don't like this, but I think it's really good, with an interesting sound. Is Alanis Morrisette doing backing vocals, or am I just hearing things? 5/5
    13. 'Before I'm Dead' - this song introduced me to a brilliant band. This is an AMAZING song, one of the main reasons I got the album in the first place! It sends shivers down my spine it's so good. 5/5

    BUY THIS ALBUM DAMMIT! :P ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Any movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is bound to have a soundtrack designed to match his brawn at every turn. The big hype here is the first Guns N' Roses track since 1993 (if Axl Rose alone can be GNR). While the track "Oh My God" alone probably isn't solid enough to distinguish this soundtrack, unreleased cuts from Korn and Limp Bizkit and notable contributions from Sonic Youth, Rob Zombie, Prodigy, and Creed make this an impressive collection of hard rock at the millennium's end. For those interested in subtler moves, Everlast contribute the previously unreleased "So Long," which was allegedly written before the Columbine High School shootings in 1999 and serves as a haunting premonition of the tragedy. Its moody introspection is a suitable counterbalance to the over-the-top rhythms and rage sported throughout. Rapper Eminem is incredibly heated with the aptly named "Bad Influence." --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gave me faith in Chinese Democracy.
    I don't care about the other songs. Limp Bizkit, Rob Zombie, Eminem, Everlast, Sonic Youth - fine artists but that's not why I paid attention to this soundtrack (or anyone else for that matter). There's a reason a special preview is included on the DVD just for the soundtrack.

    There's a reason the preview features the NEW Guns N' Roses song "Oh My God" whilst scrolling text across the screen: "NEW MUSIC BY GUNS N' ROSES."

    There's a reason fanboys were drooling on the Internet before the MTV Movie Awards because they knew there was going to be a 15-second clip commercial for End of Days featuring...yep, you guessed it..."Oh My God" by Guns N' Roses.

    Wow, a dream come true. At the time (1999) it was the first original song in eight years.

    Before then everyone had been speculating as to whether Chinese Democracy was in the works at all.

    Well, it is. It's 2005 now and I truly, firmly believe it will be released soon. Geffen isn't going to waste their $13 million + by throwing out the tracks. And after a while they're going to make Axl cough up his material. I'm betting they won't pass $20 million.

    The good news here is that "Oh My God" is one of the best Guns N' Roses songs ever recorded - ironic considering the departure of Slash, Matt and Duff.

    However if you're not a GN'R snob and not completely against Axl, try opening your ears and really listening to this song. It's great. No, it doesn't have an awesome guitar solo. But it's really hard and gritty - what Appetite for Destruction would sound like had it been processed in the day and age of Manson and Reznor.

    I think this is better than most of the stuff Manson's done and a helluva lot better than anything Trent's done. "Industrial rock" tends to give me a headache - just lots of noise. However this song proves Axl is not only still able to write good lyrics (read the words - pretty deep all considered!) but still able to sing, which I doubted after hearing him perform "Madagascar" and other songs in Rio. (His voice sounded awful then, but if it's any consolation the edited Oh My God track sounds like he did back in '93, only a bit edgier given the nature of the song.)

    This is GN'R/Axl once again showing us that they/he are able to be more than "just" rock musicians. They did hardcore metal, they did rock, they did country-western, they did rap-metal, they did rock ballads, soft ballads, and now this.

    I love Guns N' Roses.

    4-0 out of 5 stars MUSIC TO A MOVIE I'VE NEVER SEEN
    I don't know anything about the movie this soundtrack is based on, but this collection of songs is like a great late '90s hard rock mix tape, full of gloomy, ominous, hopeful and deadly, high profile artists and songs. The Frankenstein experiment gone wrong in Prodigy's "Poison" is dramatic and fun listening, Everlast's "So Long" got some bad publicity as allegedly being a song obsessed by a certain high school killer, it is truly less menacing,being a beautiful rock ballad about the results of bullying, Guns N' Roses' "Oh My God" successfully fuses old school rock with a nu metal heartbeat,Eminem's cocky "Bad Influence" attempts reverse psychology in an anti-suicide social statement, the more alternative Sonic Youth breezes along in their traditional rhythm and guitar chaos in "Sugar Kane", Korn's big production in "Camel Song" is like an upheaval of late '90s radio, Limp Bizkit's "Crushed" leans on funk, pop, and The Steve Miller Band in a weird jangle song structure, Rob Zombie's "Superbeast Girl On a Motorcycle Mix" sounds like a high school marching band fully geared for war. Twelve tracks in all, these songs sound like they belong together, hard rock with a heart, a halo, and a gun.

    Editorial Review

    Teen scream flicks like this one are back in vogue, though what's really horrifying here is Kula Shaker's pedestrian cover of Deep Purple's "Hush;" come in, lads, your 15 minutes is up. Elsewhere, Toad the Wet Sprocket show more teeth than usual in covering "Hey Bulldog," and Hooverphonic's brilliant "2Wicky" gets a last-gasp airing. The big news: Adam Cohen debuts with the darkly romantic "Don't Mean Anything," and there are promising hints that Leonard's son could be the real deal. --Jeff Bateman ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars BUY this album!
    This album is VERY good! When I watched the movie, I had to go and buy the music right afterwards. I love this soundtrack and would recommend it to anyone!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Quite enjoyable
    I finally bought this soundtrack after wanting it for many years. I really enjoyed the music from the film and this CD is full of nearly every song from it, except a couple including "Forgotten Too" by Ugly Beauty, which was one of the main reasons I bought it, but I am still satisfied with the majority of the album. My favourites are "Summer Breeze" -Type o Negative, "Hooverphonic" -2Wicky and "One Hundred Days" -Flick. I'm not entirely used to the CD yet so I won't judge any of the songs badly. I'd say if you enjoyed the film you should buy the Album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Movie, Great Soundtrack
    Well, the movie isn't the best I've ever seen, but the soundtrack is fantastic.This was the c.d. that converted me to listen to alternative music, instead of country, which I used to love, but now detest.The song"Summer Breeze" is perhaps the best song on the album.I cantgive the movie much credit though, it was o.k. for a teen slasher flick,but was a little lame in parts.However, whether or not you liked themovie doesnt matter, the soundtrack is excellent.Some of the artists onthis album are not widely known, but provide some of the best songs on thec.d.If you are a true fan of the alternative music genre, or even themetal genre, this c.d. is a must have.Go buy it today! ...

    Editorial Review

    In a bordering-on-brilliant idea, the overseers of The Spawn soundtrack proposed an idea to a host of bands that went something like this: "you metal kids go play nice with the electronic geeks and maybe you'll make beautiful music together." Well, guess what? It happened. From the sexy, screamy sounds of the opening cut "Can't You Trip Like I Do" (courtesy of Filter and The Crystal Method) to the funkified "One Man Army" (Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello mixing it up with The Prodigy), the disc is as hot as the Spawn's home and twice as heavy as the monster himself. If you like the CD, rent the video; the soundtrack is front and center in the film, kind of like MTV with a plot. --Denise Sheppard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing...
    This soundtrack is hands down, the BEST soundtrack ever produced. I am a huge rock and techno fan so this was like a dream come true for me. The heavyweights of rock collaborating with the techno kings...pure bliss. Honestly, it's hard for me to select an outstanding track because all the tracks are equally awesome. I have listened to various soundtracks from many many movies and none of them come even close to this...highly recommended!

    4-0 out of 5 stars One hell of an album
    Spawn: The Album is probably one of the best Movie Soundtracks ever created.It has some really great songs with some very popular bands like Metalica, Stabbingwestward ect.One of the best songs is from Maryln Mansion, this is also one of the finest piece of Elektronica(Ithink that's what you call it)music ever made in an album.

    I won't go into detail except that this is a very underrated album and has some great songs and some very popular bands.It also has a song from Incubus that is acctually pretty damn good.

    The guys who put this Album together did a terrific job and I must say that the Spawn Album is one of the only thing that wasn't a dissapointment about this film...

    Go get it..

    5-0 out of 5 stars My First CD
    Like my review says, this was the first CD that I bought.It helped guide me into the direction of music that I wanted to listen to.It seems that there is a rule that bad movies have good soundtracks.This is supported here.(The movie was god awful) But this is different.The spawn Soundtrack is no ordinary Soundtrack.Every song is made by an industrial group and a metal group (most the time).Every song is different and every song is unique.One of my favorites here is Filter and Crystal Method's (Cant You) Trip like I Do.Unfortunately it seems it's the only good song I have heard out of either of these guys.The songs that take the cake are Marilyn Manson & the Sneaker Pimps' A Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Korn & the Dust Brother's Kick the P.A. and Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot's No Remorse.There is also a bizarre remix of Metallica's For Whom the Bell Tolls (with DJ Spooky?).The song Tiny Rubberband was the first song I had ever heard by the Butthole Surfers (With Moby) and I'm glad of it because they have become one of my favorite bands, it's a slow weird eerie song that most people here don't even mention but I like it.The song Spawn by Silverchair & Vitro is great and somewhat disturbing.

    I wouldn't say that there are any bad songs at all with the exception of T-4 Strain by Henry Rollins & Goldie and the song Skin UpPin Up by Mansun (NOT MANSON) with 808 State.It also took me a while to get used to track 14.If your looking for an excellent industrial/metal compilation (or something along the lines of that) then I suggest you pick up a copy of this.But don't see the movie!Watch the Animated Series instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best!!!
    I HAD to give this CD 5 stars since it is one of the VERY FEW cd's I've bought over the past decade where I like every song (one of four actually, the others being AC/DC - Live, Weird Al - Bad Hair Day and Gravity Kills self titled album). I bought it when it first came out and still listen to it today. The songs blend well together and carry the emotion of The Crow legacy with them. I rate this album the best in the series.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I didn't like it
    It's not great music to dance to.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this!!!
    I'm probably one of only a handful of people who would say this (then again it might just be me and my brother), but in my opinion, this is the best of the three Crow movies/soundtracks.I'm currently listening to the cd and it's just wonderful.I've had the cd since the movie came out, and the longer I have it, the more I enjoy it.Although, I think the two rap songs kind of ruin the mood a little bit.My favorites include the first five tracks (I could just sit here and listen to Bush's "In A Lonely Place" until my batteries die), NY Loose's "Spit', Korn's "Sean Olson", and Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog".All in all, this is a great cd and I'm glad I bought it. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Origins Of Korn
    As any self respecting Korn fan should know, before there was Korn came L.A.P.D. (short for Love And Peace Dude). L.A.P.D. consists of where-is-he-now vocalist Richard Morales and current Korn members James "Munky" Shaffer, Fieldy, and David Silveria (contrary to popular belief, Brian "Head" Welch wasn't an official member). So it's essential listening for anyone who loves Korn. Does it sound anything like Korn, you may ask? Hell no. L.A.P.D. aren't exactly original, and listening to this album is like a time-warp, back to the late 80's/early 90's. They combine all the obvious influences such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Suicidal Tendencies and Faith No More, and throw in a little bit of old-school Metallica for good measure. Overall, it's a mish-mash of genres going on, so the CD never gets boring, as they always take an unexpected turn. Richard Morales spends half the disc rapping, and the rest either yelling or growling. He is a fitting vocalist for this type of music, I wonder what ever became of him? Fieldy, Munky and David have just as much chemistry on here as they showed in later efforts, and Munky even churns out a few riffs that would later be used for the first Korn album (listen carefully). Also, it's interesting to hear him tackle some solos and show a little more proficiency at guitar than most people give him credit for. Skills which will serve him well, as Korn is now head-less and he is the lone guitar player for the band. Some highlights of the collection (which is a re-release of their debut "Who's Laughing Now" with three extra tracks tacked on) include "P.M.S.," "Don't Label Me," "Jesus" (which was later covered by Videodrone), and the odd, yet addictive disco-wannabe "Slicky Slixter." Overall, a very nostalgic and different listen for a Korn fan. I highly recommend this CD, even if you don't like Korn but are interested in the bands that influenced them. L.A.P.D. are definitely missing the harder, darker edge that Jonathan Davis brought to the table with Korn, so just listen with an open mind. Actually, forget this whole review, let it just be known that any band that samples the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" forever has my respect!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible
    I Love Korn. David Silvera is a great drummer, Fieldy has a great style of bass playing, which I am disapointed because his style isn't found here and James "Munky" Shaffer is a great guitarist.

    Simply stated....I wouldn't recomend LAPD to anyone. Even the biggest Korn fan. It's mostly a Funk-Rock cd. A few of the songs are 4/10. The rest are 0/10 for me.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Keep An Open Mind
    You need to keep an open mind about this record. It sounds NOTHING like Korn WHATSOEVER. It is quite good, and has a very stron classic rock vibe. This album isn't earth shattering, but very enjoyable to listen to. If you are a Korn fan (which is mot likely how you got wind of this CD.) and you don't mind putting in some Led Zeppelin from time to time, you may enjoy this CD. The Vocalist sounds similar to Kill 'Em All era James Hetfield, that's the best way to describe him. Also, it is nice to hear some lead guitar from a Korn guitarist. Their isn't a whole lot of it, but it is nice to hear. Also, Munky not only Slaps the bass hear, but also Pops! Also, there is female (back-up) vocals on a track and a horn on another track. I would suggest that you aquire this album. It's pretty good and makes a nice, enjoyable, addition to anyone's CD collection. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Snot singer James Lynn Strait had a lot of friends, if this intensely emotional tribute is any indication. Strait died in a December 1998 car accident, with Snot on the verge of breaking big, thanks to critical kudos and a stint on Ozzfest '98. Strait Up features a dozen of heavy rock's most prominent singers, including Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Korn's Jonathan Davis, Incubus's Brandon Boyd, and Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath paying homage to the late frontman. In 1998, Snot's Mikey Doling and John "Tumor" Fahenstock had music awaiting lyrics from Strait, who passed away before beginning the album. So the singers on Strait Up wrote their own lyrics to Snot's heavy music and recorded with the surviving members of Snot. The results are impressive. System of a Down's Serj Tankian offers up a eulogy in "Starlit Eyes": "The first to accept, the last to disappoint / Now you are free to roam the skies." Slipknot's Corey Taylor turns in a melodic but aggro "Requiem," singing: "I see the loss every time someone says your name." But it's the mellow emotion exuded by Sevendust's Lajon Witherspoon in "Angel's Son" that is the standout on a powerful album full of poignant triumphs. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

    Great album, especially love the Dez and Corey tracks. Really a great thing all these vocalists did for Snot, get it if you like Snot or any of the vocalists.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the absolute best tribute album
    i anticipated "strait up" for months b4 its release, and whn it arrived election day 2000, i was all over that cd.the boys from snot, sans jamie miller (drummer),plus shannon larkin (godsmack) on drums took some rhythms they had working from snot demos in progress and gathered some of the biggest names in the rock scene to craft lyrics to honor james lynn strait, the intense frontman for snot, who died helplessly in a car crash in 1998.what the guys did was truly a masterpiece.every song on here brings a diverse track, based on what the singers current band sounds like-it shows how eclectic and creative mikey,tumor,sonny,and shannon really are.the inclusion of the sleeker snot track "absent" is a big plus, great stuff there."sad air" is a biographical prophecy from lynn, very chilling and sobering to listen to.the hidden track is kinda pointless, but it makes itself look better just by being on here.this album is heartfelt and amazing in every way, shape and form and you havent lived until youve heard it.absolutely brilliant material.

    3-0 out of 5 stars All in all, not bad
    Strait Up is a success in the long run, but there are songs that just sucked or didn't belong.

    For example, is it really nescessary for Fred Durst to plug Limp Bizkit yet again in a song dedicated to the passing of Lynn Strait, even when LB isn't even playing on the recording.And the lyrics are pathetic.Not a bad song, but Fred did a terrible job at the lyrics.They are laughable.

    And the song with Mark McGrath from Sell-out Ray kinda sucks too."Catch A Spirit" with Max Cavalara is okay, but not Soulfly quality.Brandon Boyd's song is "eh." And Serj's song is suprisingly not good.The rest are pretty good.

    Highlight tracks include 2,3,8,11.Jon Davis, M.C.U.D, Lajon Witherspoon, and Corey Taylor did the best jobs.

    The unreleased Snot song "Absent (13) is pretty good, but not astonishing.

    If your a fan of Snot, or some of the lead singers from other bands on this recording, its a decent buy.Otherwise, "Eh" ... Read more
