Take a Look in the Mirror [Bonus DVD] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's safe to say that Jonathan Davis and company are, to paraphrase Paul Simon, still pissed off after all these years. On this, Korn's sixth album, the band returns to its roots, dropping some of the effects and focusing on the sort of sonic/emotional traumas that dominated the first two efforts. Davis revisits plenty of his old ghosts here -- "Alive" finds him lashing out at an unnamed betrayer, while "Here It Comes Again" weighs in on emotional claustrophobia, with plenty of punishing guitar work to exacerbate that feeling. "Break Some Off" pumps up the volume with equal fervor, relying on thunderous drumming to accent Davis's raw-throated screaming. While the mood ...

On this, Korn's sixth album, the band returns to its roots, dropping some of the effects and focusing on the sort of sonic/emotional traumas that dominated the first two efforts. Davis revisits plenty of his old ghosts here -- "Alive" finds him lashing out at an unnamed betrayer, while "Here It Comes Again" weighs in on emotional claustrophobia, with plenty of punishing guitar work to exacerbate that feeling. "Break Some Off" pumps up the volume with equal fervor, relying on thunderous drumming to accent Davis's raw-throated screaming. While the mood remains pretty dark throughout, there are a few changes of pace in terms of sonics: "Play Me," which incorporates a guest spot from Nas, taps the MC's harsh urgency, but doesn't lapse into rap-metal cliché. "When Will This End?," which closes the album, moves forward on waves of acoustic guitar, but as you might guess, the seething song doesn't go all that gently into the abyss. With plenty of tension leading up to the inevitable release, Take a Look in the Mirror isn't going to soothe any nerves, but -- for those willing to do what the title suggests -- it may provide some dark insight.
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Just short of a decade into their incredibly successful and influential career, Korn went into Take a Look in the Mirror publicly stating their hopes to record a fresh-sounding album, a seemingly simple task that they somewhat ended up accomplishing. They needed a fresh album -- one that differed from their past couple, the similar-sounding Issues 1999 and Untouchables 2001, yet at the same time wouldn't alienate their notoriously fickle nu-metal fan base. Issues and Untouchables had been fine albums, but Korn definitely needed a change -- if they wanted to remain relevant, that is. There's a lot of turnover in the metal world because there's always the next big thing whether it's thrash, grindcore, alt-metal, rap-metal, or whatever, and the rare bands that do last like, say, Tool do so because they keep changing and therefore retain the curiousity of their perpetually aging and thus perpetually dwindling fan base while at the same time drawing in new generations of listeners. It's a tricky business, really -- you need to keep changing yet still maintain your essence. And Korn does that very well on Take a Look in the Mirror, where they deftly consolidate their past strengths and self-produce a succinct album that sounds like trademark Korn -- yet purposefully doesn't sound like any Korn album to date. It's a little paradoxical, but that's precisely what makes Take a Look in the Mirror so interesting, especially for longtime fans. Particular songs draw from past Korn albums -- whether it's the ultramelodic Issues/Untouchables style of "Alive," the overt rap-metal Follow the Leader style of "Play Me," the covert rap-metal Life Is Peachy style of "Y'all Want a Single," or the seeing-red berserk Korn style of "Break Some Off" -- while a few highlights "Right Now," "Counting on Me," "Did My Time" break into exciting new territory. And perhaps most importantly, Korn keeps Take a Look in the Mirror brief: a baker's dozen in 45 minutes if you don't count the hidden bonus track their ADD-paced live version of "One" from MTV's Metallica comeback special. Because of the emphasis on brevity and variety and especially quality, the album's over before you know it and you're left feeling hungry for more Korn. [Epic released a bonus DVD edition that appends the video for "Right Now," along with some other non-essential multimedia content.]
Rolling Stone - Robert Cherry
1/2 Davis hasn't traded self-pity for self-reflection, but he is screaming "f**k you" with greater precision.

    This Cd is horrible!!!=)

    U Know I'll start with that I really liked KoRn with their first two albums especially songs like shoots and ladders you know, but after these two cool albums since that follow the leader Korn has turned into komercial ****! I thought that they couldnt make something worser than untouchables, but now I see that I was wrong! If there were still something of the old KoRn on Untouchables , then here are no lyrics, no guitars, no nothing! And I dont know how can people say that this is the best KoRn album, this is the worst with no comments! They just showed that they can make only something for 11 year old girls to buy and that the real KoRn is never coming back ( and that shows eaven the touring together with Linkin Park)...

    KoRn makes a Komeback

    In their latest album, "Take A Look In The Mirror", released November 25, KoRn really delivers. The sound of the new album is full and mature, taking from the "Issues" atmosphere, but with a decidedly angrier feel. This album tops off "The Untouchables" beyond comprehension. In my opinion, while a good album, "The Untouchables" was just a fastfood album in between "Issues" and their latest and greatest. The guitars are raw and powerful in this album, and the lyrics are heartfelt. The vocals harken back to KoRn's olden days, taking a little from "Issues" and "KoRn(selftitled)". If you are a fan of KoRn, or just rock and roll in general, I highly suggest you purchase this CD.

    This album is friggin' awesome!

    This album has made a true Korn fan out of me. It is so killer. It's loud, it's hard, it's just awesome. This is the best of Korn's albums. I love the guitar licks. My favorites are Right Now, Play Me, and...oh yeah....all the other songs. This whole album kicks major a$$! If you're into hard rock and metal, you absolutely have to buy this album. This is one of the best albums of all time, no joke.

    Take a Look in the Mirror

    This album blew my mind away! Not to mention that I am a Korn fan. Like previous people had said it is all FIVE albums mixed together but FU__EN HARDER! Take a Look in the Mirror is more than I expected. The album is more harder than others that Korn had created... I think the other albums are good too it is just Take a Look in the Mirror is what I wanted! I cannot wait to hear Korn perform these songs live! If I was you I would buy this album and add it to your collection! Trust me you will like it, if you like KORN! The Bonus DVD is awesome because it shows you some f__ed up video of RIGHT NOW not the Animation but some other one plus you get to see some Untouchables tour action. KORN JUST FU___CKEN ROCKS!

    Listen to this Metal/Rock CD

    This is the best Metal/Rock CD of 2003. If you like Slipknot, Adema, or Staind, you'll absolutely love this album. After hearing this album, you'll be running to your local CD store to buy Korn's other 5 CDs.

    Take A Look at My Review

    Take A Look In The Mirror... absolutley rocks! I recommend it to anyone who loves KoRn, or appreciates great metal. They combine their older aggression and loud antics with their sound today, and it sounds perfect! And don't forget about the Bonus DVD and the Hidden track at the very end of the CD....

    Take A Look In The Mirror

    This has got to be one of their best albums! Great music, great guitar, great voice...great bagpipes! In my point of view, everything's perfect. I wouldn't want a thing changed. I like the idea of re-doing Alive...that came out well. I also like the hidden track "One", and how it came straight from the T.V., audience and all. The music is hard, but with some soft points. And to top everything off, they produced it themselves, which shows they know what they are doing and still know how to rock the house! If you weren't a Korn fan before, you will be now! Go buy it!

    The best Korn album since the first

    This album takes me back to the first album but with allot more aggression. Very heavy, it's NOT like one of those albums your all psyched to get, only to find out it only has one good song on it. I love the whole CD, not a bad song on it, and you can tell just by listening to it that the Korn boys put all they had into making it. The DVD with the behind the scenes footage is awesome, & the blended videos, even the scrapbook inside, all make this CD more than worth the money.

    KORN!!!!!!!!!!

    Just one thing to say about this album... Awesome. Jon Davis screams his lungs off on this album. It is the coolest thing. It reminds me of the good old days when I first bought Korn's self titled album. "Take a Look in the Mirror" is such a great album, there is not much more to say about it. Get the album and see what I mean. Metal fans, if you have fallen astray from past Korn albums, this album will lore you back. It is great. I can't wait to hear the songs in concert. Now if you will excuse me... I gotta listen to the album again. KORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
