Review Summary: It's more machine now than man.1 of 2 thought this review was well written
Ah, good old Korn, a band that has not only mastered the controversial sub-genre of metal, Nu metal, but has also recently done some experimentation within the past few years, with the expectations of See You on the Other Side, and the largely hated untitled album. Nearly two years ago, they released their 9th album "Korn III: Remember Who You Are", returning to old grounds with newly added touches, raising the hopes of diehard fans that the old Korn is back and still alive. But on The Path of Totality, a majority of those fans will be once again disappointed, for there is as much old sounding Korn on here as there is as many pears in an apple tree.
However, despite the music being a desperate attempt at trying to be a new and unique band by collaborating with 100 different "dubstep" and electronic artists, frontman Jonathan Davis lyrics and voice is still the same. It is probably the only thing about Korn that will never change, but with something such as Path of Totality, you'd think that Jonathan would try something new and different to give the album more of a boost, especially since it was mainly his idea to try and make a post-dubstep metal fusion album, with the other members going along with it.
So, in conclusion, if you're either a diehard Korn fan until the end, or a musically oblivious 8th grader who is looking for a new album to blast in the mall parking lot with your friends, then this album is for you. But if you're either an addict to their old albums or hate sudden change, then stay far away from this album as you can.
If you're still not sure about this album and want to try and at-least check out a song or two, my recommendations would be Get Up! and Chaos Lives in Everything, for it at-least has some fairly good singing and almost tolerable music.
