#1 – The Path of Totality (2011)
Jump back past The Paradigm Shift, and you come to Korn’s second-to-latest album. It didn’t catch every critic the right way, garnering the odd negative review, but the general consensus from our aggregated panel of reviewers is that The Path of Totality is the band’s best effort. Artistdirect, Allmusic, Metal Hammer, and Rock Sound all rated it highly, and it manages to beat Korn III: Remember Who You Are down into second place by the merest of margins.
The singles Get Up!, Narcissistic Cannibal, Way Too Far, and Chaos Lives in Everything were released from the album, which sold 55,000 copies in the first week and debuted at number 10 in the Billboard 2000. The album also took “Album of The Year” at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards, scoring the band their first win at that event.
The Path of Totality Scores: AllMusic (80/100), ArtistDirect (100/100), Spin (70/100), Metal Hammer (80/100), Rock Sound (80/100) – Final Score: 82/100
So, would The Path of Totality be at the top of your list? Remember, this list is based on the average scores given by professional reviewers. It isn’t necessarily the opinion of All Axess (We like Life is Peachy…)
