An Autumn For Crippled Children The Light of September
AAFCC return with a little beast of an album. Definitely their peak in both production and musicianship, the more I listen the more I find things to remember in each song. I have always loved their drummer and here is no exception, more varied than ever. It's an album with a lot of energy and very little wasted time, my major complaint is that I crave more of those blast beats found in the climax of Fragility.

  • coldheaven The Paradigm Shift is one of the better albums Korn released post-Issues, but I'm still not fond of it. After Issues, my interest in that music was declining as well as Korn's musical output. Basically, it just didn't do a whole lot for me. Now, The Serenity Of Suffering was a very nice return to form, in my opinion.
