  • I’ll be honest, I started with Korn with Issues. That was my first Korn album. I sorta worked my way backwards. After I purchased Issues which in my opinion is one of the best metal albums, I went to the local Waves Music store and bought all the other Korn CDs at once. No other music had as much impact on me as Korn’s first album. The self/titled debut is a truly amazing piece of music. It’s pain, tragedy, depression, and all of our darker moments wrapped into a tight package sealed with a black ribbon. In my opinion what Korn represents is really hard to find in today’s music. I’m sick and tired of people calling Korn and untalented band. Or saying that Jon Davis’ anger is fake. Most of these criticizers have lived their life no longer than 13 years. Live the next 5 or 6 years and you will realize where Korn is coming from. Jon Davis comes from a life that has been filled with pain, suffering, and so much anger that there is enough in him to write 90 albums. I suggest taking a look … and reading up on the band’s history. You will surely be stunned and I would suggest reading the Korn Fiction on KornWeb which reveals some hidiously painful stories about Jon’s life. Songs like Clown, Faget, and Need To are songs about everyday things that can affect our entire life forever. But the most true to the heart song has to be Daddy. This is in my opinion the most painful true story ever heard through music. It’s a song about how Jon was molested as a child and it clearly shows his true aggression. The crying at the end of the song is real. Jon Davis was alone in the studio as he sang to pre recorded music. This is a slap in the face of all people that say that Korn is just stupid distorted noise. I don’t think half the people that say Korn is … have not even heard this song. I think that they are afraid to relate to something as hard to talk about as Jon’s life. And he is a true inspiration to most teens everywhere (including myself). Korn’s music made my life much better and helped me through tough times that I just didn’t have a chance in. I think of Korn as a form of medication and it works oh-so well. If Jon, Fieldy, Munky, Head, or David ever venture upon this review, this is what I have to say to them:Your music has changed my life. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here right now and I honestly mean that. Keep putting out meaningful music and don’t let all the critics out there deter your gift. I’m sure every single one of your fans feels the same way. Thank you…
