    If you followed the band at all, it's VERY evident he wrote the better stuff He left and they went to shit, he came back and they brought out an absolute banger.

    I've not listened to anything new they've put out in almost a decade, I'd be interested to hear if they've done something worth listening to as they're the band that got me into guitar... Does the Jonathan Davis still do that annoying singing over 99% of the song thing he started doing in the later albums? That's the main thing that put me off, more than the mediocre songs, dude just won't shut up and let the songs breathe.

    This is cool!

    Brian gave me a copy of his solo project', Love & Death's disc when I met him a few years back, it's very evident he was a huge part of Korn's original sound/writing in the day.

    I didn't hate that, but yeah... could do with a bit less Jonathan Davis.

    Blankplank and Iron1 beat me to it, but Love & Death totally proves Head wrote all of the good stuff
    I'm so metal I shit bats

    Yup, you listen to any Korn between 2005 - 2012, it sounds nothing like their old shit. OTOH, you listen to Head's solo stuff and Love and Death, and it sounds like a more modern version of classic Korn. Then Head comes back and it's basically Love and Death but with Jon fronting the band.

    Oh and Mike Huckabee sucks.
