Armed with a new record deal, Korn sound reinvigorated on their seventh studio album — despite losing a guitarist to God. Co-produced by singer Jonathan Davis along with Brit Atticus Ross and pop-punk maestros the Matrix, See You on the Other Side stretches in two opposing directions: sweeping goth anthems and trippy electronica. It’s sonically stunning stuff, especially the sleazy cyber-funk track ”10 or a 2-Way” and the new-wave ballad ”Tearjerker,” on which Davis cries out, ”I used to be someone!” The rap-metal might be gone but the self-loathing endures.
