Korn: MTV Unplugged (2007)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Release Date: Mar 06, 2007; Lead Performance: Korn; Genre: Rock

While many of their '90s contemporaries have become but nü-metal memories — Fred Durst, où es tu? — Korn are still proving their n�-mettle. To tide us over until their eighth studio album, Korn offer their MTV Unplugged. Singles ''Freak on a Leash'' and ''Blind'' are softened in their acoustic incarnations, though frontman Jonathan Davis still sounds like the Cookie Monster on a Toll House binge. And a cover of Radiohead's ''Creep'' and a duet with Cure frontman Robert Smith come off, alas, like unpopped kernels.
