Untitled [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Middle-age malaise continues to plague Korn on their untitled eighth album, a plunge back into the dark dirges after a brief acoustic excursion on the spring 2007 placeholder MTV Unplugged. This is the true successor to the 2005 LP See You on the Other Side, where they jumped ship from Epic to Virgin and worked with the Matrix in an attempt to give the band an electronic makeover in the wake of the departure of Brian "Head" Welch, a move that didn't exactly endear them to their fans, maybe because along with the electronic flourishes came a lighter tone. Such frivolity is missing from the aggressively ugly Untitled, which immediately hits you over the head with ...

Middle-age malaise continues to plague Korn on their untitled eighth album, a plunge back into the dark dirges after a brief acoustic excursion on the spring 2007 placeholder MTV Unplugged. This is the true successor to the 2005 LP See You on the Other Side, where they jumped ship from Epic to Virgin and worked with the Matrix in an attempt to give the band an electronic makeover in the wake of the departure of Brian "Head" Welch, a move that didn't exactly endear them to their fans, maybe because along with the electronic flourishes came a lighter tone. Such frivolity is missing from the aggressively ugly Untitled, which immediately hits you over the head with spookiness, from the twisted malicious cartoon crows on the cover to the silly spectral carnival music that functions as an opening fanfare. That intro is an unwittingly goofy cliché, but so is Korn's roiling angst at this point, whether it materializes in their ominous minor-key grinds or in Jonathan Davis' lyrics. A virtual litany of ham-fisted histrionics "God is gonna take me out," "It's a sickness in the gene pool," a chorus of "Killing/Killing/Killing", those lyrics obscure any larger points Davis might or might not be trying to say, for it's the snatches of tortured prose that stand out, not his larger lyrical picture. Ironically, it's hard to deny that the bigger musical picture overwhelms the individual moments on Untitled, which is long on mood and short on gripping songs, or even memorable riffs. To a certain extent, this has always been true with Korn -- one of the signatures of alt-metal is that it's about sound rather than song -- but it's striking that even as the band adds some odd flourishes like vaguely Beatlesque Mellotron punctuating "Kiss," the songs blend together instead of standing apart. And even if they've retreated into darkness here, they haven't shaken the electronica fixation from See You on the Other Side -- although, admittedly, these flourishes aren't nearly as extreme as they would have been if they hadn't parted ways with the Matrix at the beginning of the project -- and this electronic bent is still apparent even if Untitled is a heavier record than its predecessor, thanks in part to the steady pulse of their partially borrowed rhythm section. Their regular drummer David Silveria has decided to sit this one out, so Korn have rotated Davis, Bad Religion's Brooks Wackerman, and Terry Bozzio of all people through the drummer's chair, giving the album just a shade too much professionalism in its rhythmic pulse. This, combined with layers of overdubbed baritone vocals and the elastic electronics that are meant to sound modern but wind up sounding like a relic from the mid-'90s, gives Untitled all the relevancy of an unrecorded bridge between Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals. [This version of Untitled includes the bonus track "Sing Sorrow" as well as a separate DVD featuring bonus content.]

    What Happened??

    Korn has slowly been going downhill ever since the release of Issues. Having been a huge korn fan from their first 3-5 albums I can honestly say that they have lost it. This CD isn't worth buying. I hope they can make a come back some day but this isn't it.

    Korn is still alive

    When I first listen to this album I was disappointed. Then I watched the DVD that came with it and started to realize where they were going with all the new sounds, and what each song meant. That’s when I started too really like it. Each song seems to put you in a different mood which is hard to do with one band. I wouldn’t say this is the greatest Korn album, but I will say I think it is one of the deepest albums they have put together.

    At least they are trying new stuff unlike other bands

    So in korns 13th year and on their 8th studio album, they again change it up. For a band to be around this long they have to keep reinventing themselves to stay relevant. The themes are a lot darker this time around compared to the last. They took a lot of risk and tried a lot of new things. Every song has its own sound but they all come together as one complete sound for the record. Even though David left, they brought in an amazing drummer and he really helped the sound come out. Not only is the whole cd great but the bonus dvd is an amazing look into the recording process. If your a korn fan buy this, and if you are looking for a new kind of sound even from a band thats been around a while, this is a must have.
