It seems the crown of musical WTFnity has been snatched from the unholy alliance of Lou Reed and Metallica. Sitting down? Right.
Korn has released a dubstep album.
Josh Johnson at Washington Square News has heard it so you don’t have to.
While the music of “The Path of Totality” is assaulting and monotonous, the inane lyrics are what make it so hard to take the album seriously. The lyrics fall into two categories: offensively simple and just plain offensive. After 10 albums, lead singer Jonathan Davis is still singing about how terrible life is and how everyone else exists to see him suffer. If he still has all this angst, maybe songwriting isn’t the best form of self-expression for him. Perhaps he should try painting instead.
