It's not gonna give me any kvlt credits but here is an album that I just so happen to like a great deal. Korn have always been one of the most commercially viable nu-metal bands and Issues tapped into the teen angst to great (financial) effect, but the videoclips for
Falling Away from Me and Make Me Bad got me hooked as a boy and I still can't help enjoying those a lot. The rest ain't exactly filler though. The trudging, elephantine guitars let themselves be felt in the gut like a good glass of whiskey and make the singles seem like a rather light affair. All proper tracks (Somebody Someone, Beg for Me and Let's Get this Party Started being the best aside from the aforementioned singles) are very dynamic, partly because of the bass, partly because of the track structures. Opinions about Jonathan Davis differ, of course, but his bellows are commanding and he always manages to make his voice fit the music. I don't like any other album by this band but this one comes recommended.
