Korn's best album
A must have for any Korn fan or someone just getting into them. Beginning to end amazing. Favorite songs are Right Now, Deep Inside, Did My Time, Everything I've Known, & I'm Done. Love love love this album. Best Korn album beginning to end in my opinion.
Korn ii, if there was one
We all know about their self-titled album, laying the foundation of their sound. And we know about Korn iii, Remember Who You Are, but where's Korn ii? Look no further than Take A Look In The Mirror. This album celebrates their 10th Anniversary since their demo in 1993, and even one track from that demo, Alive, appears on this album. This album was self-produced, and they regress back into their older sound. I think this album features a lot of screaming vocals from Jonathon Davis. Head refers to this album as "the worst record we ever made," but I don't think it's bad. It just didn't advance their sound the same way the last two albums did.
Right Now - 7/10 Brutal opener from start to finish.
Break Some Off - 9/10 Very heavy. And it's short, I might add. Lots of screaming.
Counting On Me - 9/10 Most relatable song. Love it.
Here It Comes Again - 8/10 Good track. Melodic and heavy.
Deep Inside - 6/10 This features from time signature changes between 4/4 and 6/8. Nothing super technical, but it's cool.
Did My Time - 7/10 Korn classic, right here. It's good.
Everything I've Known - 7/10 I really appreciate how this track slows everything down. It's relatively serene and gives variation to the album.
Play Me - 8/10 I don't think Nas contributes much to this song as the lyrics he has are relatively unintelligent and hurt the song more than help it. When Korn seizes control again at the bridge, then this track is SOLID.
Alive - 6/10 Originally featured on their demo, but never released as it morphed into Need To from their first album. Need To is a better rendition, I think, but still, this song is neat.
Let's Do This Now - 8/10 Sick bagpipe intro. Fast and brutal.
I'm Done - 9/10 This is my personal favorite. Great melody and riff.
Y'all Wanna Single - 8/10 Playful. Short and heavy. You either like this one or you don't.
When Will This End - 6/10 Decent closer. Really resembles the sound they had in their first album.
For some reason this is Jonathan Davis' least favorite album, but I love it!
I guess the band must have just been going through a hard time in their lives when they put this album together and maybe that's why JD doesn't like it. For me it's right up there with their first album, Untouchables, and Follow the Leader on the list of my favorite Korn albums. The whole album is very heavy and everyone in the band just sounds great. I hesitated in purchasing this one for a while but I really feel like it's severely underrated. Now since I got it a few months ago I have to listen to it just about every day! The 3 songs together - Did my Time/ Everything I've Known/ Play Me (with Nas - a very underrated song - I think it's a great solid performance and by far Korn's best metal/rap song) are one of the best sets of 3 songs in a row I've ever heard. If you like Korn's sound on their first album I think you won't be disappointed with this.
Underrated, yet GREAT album
By Mr. Mark96
This album compared to the last 2 previous Korn albums stands out to me because it's simply louder and heavier. "Issues" which was a commercial success is great album, even though it lacked the heavy metal sound. "Untouchables" was an album people would consider to be just okay. I'm not a fan it because it was the sound was too soft. "Take A Look In The Mirror" brought back the heavy guitar and riffs, and Jonathan's vocals seemed to improve with his screaming, and his lyrics seemed to be similar to the debut album in positive ways. "Right Now" was an great opener, "Did My Time" was probably the most well known song off the album. This album is the most underrated to Korn, but is great record. GO BUY IT!!
This album is so so so amazing!!!!! Right now, Y'all want a single, and did my time are some of Korn's best songs. Love this album!
By take a look in the mirror ¡
I believe this is one of their best albums. It is grungy and really just amazing. there's a lot of loud bass slaps (example: "Alive") and I love the older sounding KoRn preferably, but that's just my opinion. overall, this album is worth your money, definetely!
By far my favorite KoRn album! Heavy as hell!
The Album That's Most Likely to Blow Out Your Speakers
By Nathan Foss
One of the most insanely bassy albums I've ever heard. Careful. There's so much bass it will blow out your speakers. I didn't get into this album that much, but there are some great moments if you've been following Korn up to this point. Korn wrote a great album for me when I was in high school, but it hasn't aged as well as others. The angry lyrics on this one seem a little over the top at times. This might actually be the most over the top Korn album they made. Depending on who you are this can be a great thing. Even though this album overall hasn't aged well for me, I have to admit it has a very distinct sound, so it does stand out. It manages to bring together all the different sounds that Korn have tried up to this point. Overall, I have some very mixed feelings, it has a lot of filler, but Right Now is hands down one of the best Korn songs.
