I am back with another example of my changing musical taste.

I recently purchased Korn's newest CD Untouchables. Now, I was never a big fan of Korn. I remember hating the song "Freak on a Leash" (which I now like) and not liking whatever CD held that song. I would like to listen to that CD again now just to see if I still don't like that album or if I was just in a different musical phase.

Anyway, I bought the album because I had heard two of Korn's songs on the radio and I liked both of them ("Here to Stay" and "Thoughtless"). I found two more songs which were absolutely incredible ("Hollow Life" and "Alone I Break"), and, strangely enough, they are absolutely nothing like the first two I mentioned. There are also a few songs I really don't like ("Make Believe" and a couple other songs I can't remember the names of). I'm fairly neutral about the other seven songs on the CD, though.

Also, I think everyone should watch the music videos for "Here to Stay" and "Thoughtless," even if you have to do it with the sound turned off (although, I would suggest at least trying to catch the lyrics). Both are slightly disturbing, a little bit gross at parts, and teeming with social commentary.
