Here's a kick in the balls for Korn: original guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has left, citing extreme moral objections to the music. By the sound of things lately, it would've been cooler had he said he's leaving cuz the band is fucking played out. Produced by the Matrix (Avril and Hilary), the songs are safe and polished, and the band continues down the slippery slope of irrelevance by trying to duplicate past glories. While the anger is still there for singer Jonathan Davis, he seems incapable of harnessing the old venom, relying on an annoyingly nasal falsetto. Except for 10 Or A 2-way, the only song with bite, the disc just teases before fizzling out.
