Korn first talked reinvention with 2003's Take a Look in the Mirror. Self-produced, it was a muscular, effectively brief record that nodded in some intriguing new directions. After that they talked celebration -- 2004's greatest-hits set looked back on a decade of influence and intensity. And yet, it's 2005's See You on the Other Side that's Korn's real reinvention celebration. It's their first album as a quartet after getting left behind by born-again guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. It's also their first venture for new label Virgin. But really Other Side is Korn's acknowledgement that their life isn't all that bad, and it's time to party. It's a heavy record that swings, an album that takes Korn's rap-metal template toward the red-light swagger of the Dirty South's rap revolution. Is it really surprising that Lil Jon plays Jonathan Davis in the video for "Twisted Transistor"? That song's one of eight on Other Side produced and co-written by the Matrix, and it shows. It's Korn all the way, cocky and funky. But it's slick too, concerned more with the shock value of groove than trying to be some poor kid's slap bass confidant, his surrogate therapy session. And it works. It's cool to hear the Matrix getting down with Korn; they keep each other honest, balancing the sheen with the sleaze. Davis, Munky, Fieldy, and David Silveria still bring it, but in a way that's aware of the manufacturing. And that's key, since after ten-plus years, their act was getting a little tired. Why not embrace the cash, embrace the slinkier side of Fieldy's vertical rhythms? The target of "Politics" is obvious, and "Hypocrites" rails against organized religion. But beneath the polemic is the Korn sound stripped, made truly economized and catchy. Diehards are going to gnash their teeth, and clog the message boards with dismissive comments. But isn't it about time for them to move on, too? Other Side is a little too processed at times -- "Love Song" says "Motherf*cker!" just to know it's alive. But then there's "Open Up," running a NIN influence through weird processing, and "Getting Off," which wavers and lurches like Korn chopped and screwed. If rap-metal were ever meant to evolve, See You on the Other Side is the record that does it.

i like all the songs except the last one. i think the different sound makes it fresh and interesting. the one major thing i didnt like was the bagpipes at the end of some of the songs, but other than that an overall good all good album. favorite songs: twisted transistor, love song, open up, and liar.

Head leaves, and Korn doesn't respect his decision, thats "ok" but to write songs about him being a hypocrit is retarded. He might actually get some people off drugs. a whole hell of a lot more than they ever did

I've been looking forward to this album for a long time -- and it doesn't disappoint! I can't give it 5 stars yet, because at least with me, my admiration for Korn CDs grows with time (the more I listen to them, the more I like them -- and I just got this one)...but it's a great album that is definitely worth purchasing. And the song "Twisted Transitor" is absolutely unbelievable! "Coming Undone" is a close second! Get the Deluxe edition for the bonus disc -- it's a bargain for the extra couple of dollars that you'll spend. Thumbs up!

Hey I got the CD at 1 am the day it came out. I have listened threw the CD more times than I can count. It is one of the best CDs they have done. I love the newer sound that they went with. My fav. songs are Love song and Politics. I love this CD and if you are a Korn fan it is one that you should add to your collection.

After listening to this album I was very dissapointed. The use of computers for sound was very different. It sounded like NIN, but was not near as good. The lyrics of past Korn songs were pretty straight to the point, but these are really metaforical. The only highlight, in my opinion was the bagpipes on 5 songs, but then again they messed with that and have them at the end of the songs. Horrible!!!

Korn is Back, and better then ever! Leading the way as one of the pioneering rock bands of the 21st century, Korn releases their seventh album "See you on the other side". The album is in many ways a return to the old "Korn ways" with Bagpipes, Skat-singing, and dramatic lyrics. However, Korn seemed to have reinvented themselves on the this album too. Jonathan Davis dug deep inside, and wrote some of his best lyrics to date. Munky shines as the solo guitarist, and shows that Head won't be missed. David introduces new elements of drumming into the mix, and Fieldy brings back his unique slap bass style. The songs are well polished, and they won't disappoint. Here’s the list of my personal favorite tracks: 1.Twisted Transistor- Twisted Transistor is a song that will be stuck in your head for days. The song is the first "single" and it has a great beat to it. The intro, sets a great mood for the rest of the album, and quickly picks up with Munky's riffs. 2.Hypocrites- Hypocrites is one of my favorite songs on the entire album. I feel the same sentiments when it comes to organized religion. The song really Shows Munky's talents as the sole guitarist of the band. 3.Love Song- Love Song was the surprise song off the album for myself. I can't get enough of the dark toned lyrics, that even Jon Davis stated, "It's sure to impress all my depressed, goth peeps out there." 4.For No One- The chorus in this song sends shivers up my spine. If their is one combination I just can't get enough of, it is "melody with hard riffs", something that Korn Delivers with perfection. All in all, I have to say that this has to be the best Korn Album to date. If you can afford it, purchase the special edition copy of See you on the other side. It is an amazing package, with beautiful artwork, and the extra tracks on the bonus disc are worth the extra money alone. I am more then satisfied with my copy of See you on the other side. Go get your copy Today! You won't be disappointed!

I heard this album wasn't going to be very great. But I bought it anyways, because I never see eye to eye with reviews. But I hated it. I waited three weeks to get it (Pre-order) and I lent it out the day I got it. What happened to the hard rock songs like Here to Stay and Thoughtless? I don't even know what genre to put this in. Pop rock? I couldn't listen to the songs on this album more than once. I'll probably resell it.

Korn has done it again! This is one of the best and most innovative albums to come out in a really long time. This is truly an album you can listen to and not have to skip a single track. I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys good music.

With the recent release of their 7th album, "See You On The Other Side", KoRn has increased the size, variety and tone of their musical career. KoRn (minus one member) released their hit single "Twisted Transister" to a nation of skeptical critics that believed's Head's (Brian Welch) departure meant the end for the gorup who started the nu-metal genre. To the dismay of dubious critics and pleasure to a multitude of fans, See You On The Other Side is a smash hit. With this album, KoRn have opened the doors to even more creativity and disarray. The result is the most revolutionary KoRn album since their debut, a barb wired, son of blinding musical fury, dark and twisted lyrical cander, and searing, sociopathic tendencies.It's the culmination of everything KoRn have come to represent musically, morphed with an industrial-strength alter ego that's been suppressed--until now. The band is at its deftest on "Getting Off," "Politics" and "Coming Undone," which highlight the industrial bend. Stalwart fans need not worry for "Liar" and "For No One" remain in lock-step with classic Korn. "See You On The Other Side" is more than the evolution of KoRn--it's an evolution of heavy.

KoRn's album, "See You On The Other Side" is the ultimate rock experience. You can always count on KoRn to deliver a heavy, jam out album, but "See You On The Other Side" really has a different twist then the other albums, they took a more industrial sound with this album. This album still has the heavy guitar, bass slapping, and drum pounding sounds like with songs like "Liar" but it really is a new KoRn sound. They seem to always say in reviews that they have changed but this album really does put a new twist on KoRn, but I must say it was what KoRn has needed, being in this game for so long. As far has Jonathan Davis's lyrics and voice, they are still just as bone chilling as ever. With songs like "Hypocrites" and "2-way", he has out did him self with his messages, the whole album is a must hear. I must say KoRn is one of those bands that will be around forever and they really put their hearts into every album, which is very obvious with "See You On The Other Side". If you haven't listened to KoRn in awhile, check out this album, you won't be disappointed. If you buy this album be sure to get the limited edition one, it's worth the money with the awesome packing, pictures and original artwork. Can't wait to see them on tour in 06 to support See You On The Other Side.

The members of Korn definitely take us in a new direction with this CD. Just as they did with their Untouchables CD, they went with a more industrial sound instead of the hard-core sounds from their prior CDs. Fieldy's bass slapping has been pushed into the background while James "Munky" Shafer's guitar skills now come to the foreground more than ever. It took me a little while to adjust to their new sound, but now I can't stop listening to this CD. Some people aren't going to like their evolution to the "Other Side", but as a die hard fan I'm there... and I'll always follow Korn in whatever direction they decide to take.

If they werent so focused on bashing Head, than mabye they wouldnt have sucked so bad. Not a fan of the computer generated effects. All in all, a very disappointing cd, but nice effort Jonathan

This is my favorite of Korn's CDs. I liked their old stuff a lot too but i didnt really love all of the songs. This CD has a lot of good songs on it and im glad that they moved away from the rap-metal.

Korn had lost a member but they still are genious. See You On The Other Side is the most experimental KoRn album. guitars are heaviest than ever, there's electro sounds but its always KORN's music. they DON'T have turn into pop even they work with pop producers. it's a new KORN but its still KORN. pogos lovers will enjoy song as Getting Off, Liar (with a great scat), Hypocrites, Open Up... and Issues and Untouchables fans will love Love Song, Seen It All, Tearjerker. drums are always really kickass and bass is very loud especially in Getting Off or It's Me Again. lyrics are always dark and insane ( Seen It All, Love Song, Hypocrites, Tearjerker, 10 or a 2-way, Twisted Transistor...) also the artwork is beautiful, amazing! The limited edition contains 3 bonus songs, 2 live videos, 2 mix and one free year in BSC fan club. An album you must have!! clean version very well done but there's songs as Tearjerker didn't contains vulgarities.
