When it comes to the Korn album Follow The Leader, where does it stand for you among your personal ranking of Korn albums? Last year we ranked all of the Korn albums from worst to best. You can find out where exactly we ranked the record by following the link below, but here is what we had to say about it:
“One cannot deny the incredible work and talent that went into 1998’s Follow The Leader. In many ways, it is a record that very much defines who Korn is. Not just because of its selection of great Korn songs, but because it is more so a blend of what makes Korn a fantastic band.
“From the catchy and aggressive sounding presentation of instrumentation to the plethora of intricate compositional structures that make up the record, to Davis’ dominating voice and lyrics – Follow The Leader is a Korn staple.
“Its level of technical proficiency and stylistic excellence also makes it one of the most entertaining, heaviest, and stellar releases of its decade. Korn is a band that ended up not only establishing a whole new genre of heavy music, but it is because of alums like Follow The Leader that they would end up inspiring future generations of heavy metal bands.”
