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.
