I bought a Korn record for the first time last night

    Its funny I made it through the 90's with little to no interest in them but last night I was in the used cd shop and I was looking for some new tunes. I saw they had a copy of Korn's unplugged from last year on cd so I decided to give it a try. Well late last fall I recalled seeing this concert on TV and I thought it was half way decent. I didint realize till listening to this cd that this Fieldy fellow can actually play the bass and not just smack it. Its a fun album if you feel like getting a little experimental. :)

    Korn is one of those bands who has bass in the forefront of the music and has a creative player with chops. For some reason people continue to hate on them. I'm not a huge fan but I'm always interested in hearing what they're putting out.

    They're originators of a style which has copycats even to this day. Unfortunately most of the bands who rip them off are laughable. Clean verse, crunchy chorus, mommy never hugged me lyrics, you know the rest.

    hes got a good sense of rhythm. and some of his lines can be really interesting. i just dont like the the lyrics
  6. I think you have to just basically " have it " for Korns style of music.. i mean not alot of people may like them because of the bass sound, the vocals, this, that etc.. See You On The Other Side was IMO definitly not the best times for them..regardless of that Korn has a HUGE fanbase and i think they have a song for everyone..i was never a HUGE fan of stuff..for example a heavy intro leading into softer melodic verses..i like the Korn songs that stay heavy throughout the whole entire song..but hey thats just me..

    I am greatly enjoying this album. :bassist:
  8. I'm a fan of their first two albums. I like Fieldy too. Hate his tone, but enjoy his playing. I think he gets WAY more crap than he should for people.

    Pretty much exactly how I'd sum up the reasons why I used to really be into Korn. When I was a kid, I could tollerate/ignore the lyrics... not so much now. They just kind of leap out and thrust themselves in your face, if that makes sense.

    Either way, I'm more into music without lyrics, or sparse lyrics, anyway.

    the acoustic Korn is just another "let's do it for the money" kind of thing. Like they wouldn't have money. Another marketing album or record that they just have to do.

    i think the album is a joke.

    If you like ashley simpson you will love this album
  11. A fairly bleak assessment there Crow. Every good band i know does an unplugged gig, not for the money but for a challenge, re-arranging songs to suit accoustic styles is difficult, especially for a band like korn i would imagine. I don't quite think you thought out your post to well...
  12. I very much agree.

    +1 here too.

    Gotta admit, he gets a lot of crap he dosn't deserve, wheather you like his tone or not, it actually suits the band very well. And if it didn't, he'd change it, or the band would change him.

    I like it, sometimes, not a band I'd listen to constantly, but sometimes.
