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. [The album was also released in a deluxe edition with bonus content.]

    There's only one word to describe it Amazing

    With the band constantly changeing style from album to album and recently losing long-time guitarist Brian "Head" Welch nobody knew what was in store for 2005's "See You On The Other Side". What we got was yet another genre defying album filled with melody, brutal riffs to bang your head to, and a new level of atmosphere not experienced on any previous album. Standout tracks include the guarenteed mosh-starter "Hypocrites" and lengthy epics like "Love Song" and "Open Up" which switch between moments of sheer brutality to heart driven clean vocals and even humming. This is a new Korn that is sure to please hardcore fans and newcomers alike. Buy this album.

    KORN HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!!

    If you have yet to buy this album then go out and get it! The guys did an awsome job on this one. The sounds are a bit different compared to the other albums which makes it even greater. It's a nice little change.

    Amazing CD

    KoRn has done it again, another mind blowing, innovative CD. See You on the Other Side is incredibly beautiful and rocks like only KoRn can rock. Outstanding. A very experimental album with awesome music and amazing lyrics. The bonus tracks on the deluxe edition are some of the best songs I have ever heard. Last Legal Drug has got to be the darkest song out there. Eaten up Inside is incredible, fun, and fking rocks. It's Me Again is also indescribably great. Jonathan, Munky, Fieldy and David are some of the best musicians ever born. You gotta buy this CD.

    NEW KORN, NE BEGINNING.

    korns new cd "see you on the other side" (SYOTOS) is such a great work of art. this is a new era, a new beggining for the guys. this cd is one of the most purest form of rock outthere right now. this guys have been able to write good lyrics, mix metal with electronica and still sounds amazing. they do not loose their metal sound and even tho this is not like the typical korn we know you will definatily know its korn if you hear it. with songs like "twisted transistor" where the electtro is very noticible but still a heavy song. then we still have heavy songs like "10 or a 2way", "open up" and "getting off" which are about sex, something that korn hasnt realy exploited tho not necesarily soemthing they have not written about. and then songs like "hypocrites" in which a line "your messiah was never mine" deal with religion. on the other hand the song "politix" deals with, well politics. which go hand in hand with religion and corruption. all in all this new korn albu is one of the greatest the have done, once again these guys showed us that korn is "here to stay" and they wont banish. a new begining, and new era, a time to get bigger if its possible tho korn is amazingly huge now. this album is the album that will grab the few fans that arent 100% into them. after a first listen to this album, you'll wanna hear it again and again. and if you dont own any korn albums it'll make you wanna go ahead and buy all of them previous ones. then you'll understand how korn got where it is and how big they got, and the reasons why. tho it is not surpriced this guys are amazing and big. one of the reasons is tthat they are very intouch with the fans and love being with them. such example is the meet and greet (autographs signings) they do, to sign the cd's for the fans and not loose contact with them.

    the "Issues" of the new millenium..

    See You On The Other Side literally means 'this is the change korn has undergone,this is the dawn of a new era, come through the door. we invite you into our new world.' in the words of korn themselves. each korn album is different in it's own way, but i must say.. this is the most powerfull album yet. the '99 release Issues was a giant step forward musically and vocaly.. sort of a 'goodbye' album to the old garage style korn. S.Y.O.Y.O.S is exactly that again. this is like nothing you've ever heard or probably ever will again. korn has a new-found love for what they do. everything is renewed, and THIS is how they show us. jonathan davis has created this amazing wall of vocals ranging from low growls, to high octive operatic singing, and back to the signature scat we all know and love. in addition to the traditional car-crash drum beats, hip-hop inspired slap bass, and seemingly impossible guitar effects.. and the good old bagpipes ofcourse, they've experemented with new styles of writing and a glass armonica in a song intitled "throw me away". this album literally gives me butterflys.. for a die-hard, devoted korn fan.. which most korn fans are.., listening to it is almost like a religous experience. it'll bring a tear to your eye, and at just the right moment, scoop you back up again and make you wanna head-bang 'till your eyes bleed. i highly recomend this album to ANYONE who's just tired of the same old shyt in everyday rock. even if it's not your favorite, i really dont think it's possible to dislike this album.. DEFIATLY worth having in your collection wether you're a korn fan or not. sTiTcH

    Simply Amazing

    Korn have proven themselves again with the release of "See You on the Other Side." Many thought that Korn would die out after the departure from former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, but boy were they wrong. The CD contains a wide array of music with all of the styles Korn has contributed to their music throughout their entire career. This CD is up on the top of the list for Korn albums. The first single off the album, "Twisted Transistor" has a radio friendly vibe to it, almost like a dance song, only Korned out. "Hypocrites" brings out the oldschool Korn feel with the heavy guitars and banging drums, making it nearly impossible to throw the horns in the air. "Coming Undone" and "Liar" seem to be growing fan favorites with their classic Korn feels. The album also contains "Seen It All", another amazing epic song by Korn. This song contains a chorus that will set you in awe. The violins featured in the song add to the beauty and perfection that Korn offer their listeners. The album ends with a rather depressing, properly title "Tearjerker". This is somewhat similar to the last song on all the previous albums, but this song is more focused on bringing out the emotions through Jonathans lyrics, rather than musically. The bonus CD comes along with three extra tracks. "Eaten Up Inside" and "It's Me Again" both are amazing songs. David shows off his double bass, while Munky brings out the classic down tuned guitar riffs. Jonathan out does himself in both of these songs, personally, making the album shine brighter had these songs not been on it. "Last Legal Drug", the other song featured on the bonus CD, is similar to Beat It Upright lyrically. The song is about sex, however it has a great vibe to it. The music in this song is great, it has come to be one of my favorites on this album. I gave "See You on the Other Side" 5 stars because Korn have never gone this far out with changing their style, and while doing so, they did one hell of a job.

    Breathtaking trip through the whole spectrum of feelings

    I´ve loved Korn ever since I first heard the excellent single "Here to stay" from the groundbreaking album Untouchables (2001), and I immediately felt like this was IT, this was the band for me, and after months of patiently waiting, I bought the album the day it hit the stores. So, three albums later, do I still feel as excited as the first time I heard them? Korn is a band in a neverending transformation, and this time they´ve taken help from the Matrix and Atticus Ross, formerly known as producers to such artists as Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne. Do they manage to make such a courageous move, without sounding like Kelly Clarkson? With all respect, a resounding YES! "See you on the other side" is a breathtaking experience, making you facing your inner, and in Jonathan Davis´ world, dark feelings. Every song is unique, weird and absolutely stunning. So do as I, and jump around in your house, whilst screaming "stand up! nobody's dryin to save you speak up! nobody's waiting to see you wake up! nobody's trying to play you" And to answer my first question: I still love Korn, and this is a dignified continuation of their impressing career, so invite yourself to a wild trip through your whole spectrum of feelings!

    Greatest Ever!

    Korn’s new album “See You On the Other Side” is their best to date. Korn has not skipped a beat despite change record labels and losing a guitarist. They have managed to rise from the ashes with a new Korn sound. Every song on the album is different from the last. The album features the new single “Twisted Transistor,” plus 13 other headbangers. My favorite song is “Throw Me Away” because it has a melodic creepiness to it. I also love “Coming Undone.” I would strongly recommend getting the deluxe edition because you get 3 bonus tracks, 2 remixes of “Twisted Transistor,” and 2 videos of the band playing live, plus a one year free membership to the new Korn fanclub, BSC! EVERYONE MUST BUY THIS ALBUM!!

    Beautiful

    This album has got to be the greatest to ever come out of Korn for a long while. As soon as I herd the first beat of the album, I was instantly hooked. If there was a sixth star I could give it, I would. I have soo much respect for Korn. I'm very glad that they took their time with this album and perfected it as much as possible. I strongly recomend his album to anybody.

    Korn gives heavy a new definition with "See You On The Other Side"

    Giving up was never an option for Korn and with their latest release SYOTOS, Korn proves to us that they will continue to redefine heavy music as we know it. With this album Korn heads in a new and refreshing direction. SYOTOS is a combination of all the heaviness of their past albums and a new industrial sound with the likes of that of nine inch nails. songs like hypocrites, liar, and getting off still have those massive riffs and agression that korn are known for. songs like throw me away,love song, and seen it all show us a darker and more epic side of korn. these three songs stand out as brilliant combinations of blasting beats and electronics. just when you think this album couldn't get any more groundbeaking and massive, tearjerker pops on sounding like something off a sade record combined with the deftones. this song is the most powerful and emotional song korn has created, using soothing melodies and dark lyrics. some of my favorite songs are present on the second cd. its me again and eaten up inside should not dissapoint loyal fans of korn and last legal drug again shows us korns "other side." SYOTOS is the most refreshing album to date and should impress anyone that takes a liking to hard rock or industrial.

    The Other Side Rocks!!

    I was a little nervous about the new KoRn album, I heard it was experimental and without Head as a second guitartist i was a little worried. But I heard Twisted Transistor and I fell in love with that song, I heard the album on MTV2s The Leak and I fell in love with all the songs! So the day it came out I ordered my copy of the Deluxe Edition and I haven't stopped playing it since. It's a change in their style of music, but it still has the ever recognizable sound of KoRn, it's their best album yet, It'd deffinitly worth buying and promting it? Better Yet! If there was a 6 outta 5 rating I'd give KoRn that, the other side rocks. SEE YOU THERE!!

    SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE, the new sound of KORN

    This album is new and certainly different, but it is still incredible. After the departure of Korn's guitarist, Head, the guys wanted to make an album that was unlike anything they had done before. So they into the studio with a couple different producers and emerged with this awesome, thought provoking, album that captivates fan after fan. "Coming Undone" is personally my favorite because it reminds me of Korns earlier albums but still has the different sound apparent throughout the album. I highly recommend this album.

    Korn - See You On The Other Side

    The new record from Korn "See You On The Other Side" is a new sound from the band. If your not someone open for change you probably won't like this album. There is alot of sampling and added effects on the album and alot of other instruments that might seem somewhat foreign to the korn fans, with string arrangements and piano parts in some songs. Everything about the album is top, the albums cover art & additional art inside the case. Overall 5 stars fora 5 star album.

    KoRns' "See you on the otherside" showing an ever evolving side of the band.

    KoRns' first release since the loss of guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, shows that the band is anything but lost without this member. "See you on the other side" mixes the signature KoRn sound with a dose of experimentation and the soul wrenching lyrics that fans have come to expect. Those who have long hoped (like me)for more of JD's signature scat & bagpipes will be in for a treat. The deluxe edition comes complete a 2nd disk featuring bonus tracks such as "It's me again","Eaten up inside", "The last legal drug" and a few remixes of the single "Twisted Transistor" released earlier this year. But those aren't the only advantages!! As with "Untouchables" the deluxe edition also offers a one year fan club membership.

    Advancing in the right direction.

    "The other side" starts with the single "Twisted Transistor", but with a rather strange minute and 3 second intro. The song is funky and very likeable, but most fans would be looking for something else. 6.5/10 Track 2 POLITICS. This song has an odd style, some good growling, definately great growling. 7.5/10 Hypocrites could be seeing as a little controversial since it's about organized religion and how hypocritical religious people can be. Great guitar riffs and catchy (better live though ..you can see a live video in the deluxe edition cd)8/10 Souvenir. Nice vocal layering awesome guitar. 9/10 10 or a 2-way what a sexual adventure these lyrics include! Nice background ambience sounds. 9/10 Throw Me Away very industrially influenced. Calm and enjoyable. 7.5/10 Love song Jonathan dedicates it to "all his goth peeps out there" Truly a good song..not relationship love song. 9/10 Open up great basslines. I'm realizing this CD isn't all about the headbanging which their transitioning it into their fans in a great way. 7.5/10 Coming Undone rumored to be their next single. If so, good choice! It's got a great chorus and a steady beat. 8.5/10 Getting Off Great chorus, awesome verse skeleton and pre chorus is just leading up excitement. 9.5/10 Liar an awesome straight up heavy-in-your-face song. Most likely to be a fan favorite since it's got the infamous scatting and bagpipes in the song. 9.5/10 For No One drumming and bass are the instruments that keep you listening in this song -unavoidable. 8.5/10 Seen It All a song about experience. Again, this has many ambience and special effect sounds throughout with haunting bass. 8.5/10 It's one minute outtro really makes a good intro for the last and deep song. Tearjerker.. Tearjerker leaves me with the most words to say. I didn't want to listen to it until I was in a real blue mood. So when I did, I payed close attention to the lyrics. The background of the song relaly sets the mood. Many may bash on this song because it's Jonathan's first time ever really singing this high. Perhaps this resembles an even more emotional "My Immortal" (from evanescence) Great finish to this great CD. 10/10 The deluxe CD includes 3 unreleased tracks which many fans have wished they would have made it on the CD. Also 2 remixes of Twisted Transistor. Not to mention the live videos for computer. Once you watch "Hypocrites" you'll witness the energy Korn havent lost. Also the great creative art all throughout, and popup within..Definately worth buying whether your a korn fan or hated them.. This CD is way different than any other korn material in the most positive way! Phew long review.. i hope it helps though!

    'see you on the other side' outstanding

    korn's newest cd 'see you on the other side' is great! It is different than the other korn cds - the sounds of the songs are "fresh". They used different sounds than their classic growly bass and guitar ones. The songs dont't seem to be as angry as other songs they've done, and if you weren't too familiar with korn, on some of the songs you might not have been able to tell it is them. It still sounds awesome, though. I love it!!!!
