Korn - Issues 2LP
Following up the 5x-platinum No. 1 charting Follow The Leader, Korn's 1999 effort, Issues finds the band putting a stronger emphasis on their patented grinder metal sound, rather than on the hip-hop elements of their first few records. Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), it reaffirmed the group's status as alt-metal leaders and purveyors of embracing and exorcising one's demons and enjoyed a similar success to that of its predecessor with another No. 1 showing and 3x platinum certification thanks to singles like "Falling Away From Me," "Make Me Bad" and "Somebody Someone."
