The Family Values Tour '98 [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Heavy metal has gone through some Frankenstein-style rebirths over the past few decades -- from Led Zep's bombastic blues to Mötley Crüe's puerile porn-rock to Metallica's caffeinated garage thrash. But no incarnation has been as menacing as that of many-headed beast Korn and Co., the mutant bunch that stalked Middle America's heartland on the 1998 Family Values Tour. Spinning metal, industrial, hip-hop, goth, and punk into a whirlwind of gloppy gloom and antisocial angst, these bands turned America's hockey arenas into a nü-metal horror flicks -- like some deviant musical entitled "Night of the Living Thrashers." Even if you find it offensive, crude, or plainly idiotic, ...

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Heavy metal has gone through some Frankenstein-style rebirths over the past few decades -- from Led Zep's bombastic blues to Mötley Crüe's puerile porn-rock to Metallica's caffeinated garage thrash. But no incarnation has been as menacing as that of many-headed beast Korn and Co., the mutant bunch that stalked Middle America's heartland on the 1998 Family Values Tour. Spinning metal, industrial, hip-hop, goth, and punk into a whirlwind of gloppy gloom and antisocial angst, these bands turned America's hockey arenas into a nü-metal horror flicks -- like some deviant musical entitled "Night of the Living Thrashers." Even if you find it offensive, crude, or plainly idiotic, denying yourself the pure, head-splitting catharsis of this live six-act sampler is like trying to play chicken with an 18-wheeler. Besides, there's more here than perverse teenage kicks. From Orgy's techno-influenced rawk dirges exemplified by their cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" to Rammstein's growling Kraut goth, this might seem like a predictably hedonistic good time. But it's a rare metal tour that brings along gangsta rap legend Ice Cube who's heard taking on the entire city of New Orleans as resident elder statesman or showcases the rude-boy skate punk of Limp Bizkit. If heavy metal has never been so clinically vicious, it's also never been so eclectic, and the results compiled here are a must-hear for any Led Zep fan who cares a lick about metal's acid-washed soul.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As Lollapalooza faded away, a number of alternatives to the big summer package tours popped up to take its place. Chief among those was the Family Values Tour, an alt-metal blowout masterminded by the fellows in Korn. The 1998 tour was pretty much a who's who of the genre in the late '90s -- Korn, Limp Bizkit, Incubus, Rammstein, and Orgy all played on the tour, along with Ice Cube, whose old band, N.W.A, provided suburban kids including the majority of the featured bands with a gateway to hip-hop. Since the tour was a success, a souvenir disc featuring all the aforementioned bands was released in the spring of 1999. And a souvenir is exactly what Family Values Tour '98 is -- a little memento for fans who attended the tour, something to remind them of the good times they had in the amphitheater. On that level, it's fairly successful, since it does offer a taste of each group. Perhaps it's not enough to satisfy collectors, since the band with the most tracks -- that would be Korn, naturally -- only has four songs and everyone runs through predictable material. With the exception of Limp Bizkit, that is: two of their three songs here are not on their debut, including an awkward stumble through House of Pain's "Jump Around." It might not be that memorable, but their good intentions are noteworthy on a routine tour sampler like this.
