THE PARADIGM SHIFT
Korn has always been one of those bands that either hits or misses with me. I've loved some of them (KORN, FOLLOW THE LEADER), and I've hated others (LIFE IS PEACHY, UNTOUCHABLES). Their last release, the dubstep flavored PATH OF TOTALITY, was pretty much unlistenable to me personally. It just turned into so much more of a Jonathan Davis solo project than anything else. For THE PARADIGM SHIFT, the band has returned to their roots in a lot of ways. They have brought back guitarist Head from his religious revival, and with him comes a lot of the older style flavor. While not perfect, THE PARADIGM SHIFT is one of the stronger releases from Korn in awhile.
