Korn III - Remember Who You Are

Korn III - Remember Who You Are
(Roadrunner Records - 2010)

The title of the new Korn album Korn III - Remember Who You Are made me hope that the band is back to their roots. Then I listened to the single Oildale (Leave Me Alone) and I was more convinced that they are on the right track. Additionally I read that Korn III - Remember Who You Are is a mix of old and new sounds, so I was curious to listen to the album. For years Korn try to present another Life Is Peachy or Korn album, but without success. You won't find killer tracks on Korn III - Remember Who You Are, no tracks like the ones which made them big. The songs seem to be unfinished, they lack something. Korn III – Remember Who You Are has its moments, but it's only passages. Korn sound like they are slowed down, that they are inhibited... The aggressiveness of the old Korn sound is missing, still this one is better then the last two Korn albums. Nothing to complain about the craftsmanship and you can even find some hooks. The highlights are Let The Guilt Go and Oildale (Leave Me Alone). The other tracks are quite okay, but nothing which will leave you in awe. Never Around is tiring and they should have skipped this one. All it does is lowering the quality of the other tracks. Anyway, you can hear some old sounds, so it seems they are back on track, even if they haven't sound like in their heydays. Everybody who liked the last two albums, this is a must-buy for you. Everybody else should listen to some tracks first, then consider buying it.
