    Last "good" album they subjectively did by consensus was Untouchables but in my opinion the last "good" album and one of my personal favorites was Take A Look In The Mirror.

    First two albums are fire, especially that first one. So dark, fresh and new. I really love Issues as well.

    You get used to it and while I remember finding it off-putting at first, eventually I think you hear it in the right song and it starts really working. Check out Starla - too many of their greatest songs are B-sides.

    Korn's last album was really good. Like, surprisingly so.

    This mostly applies to God Break Down The Door but, I felt that it would be more appropriate to post it here since it can be applied to pretty much anything.

    Why do some people like to get wrapped up in some of the most trivial shit?
    Every time there is a new release by any band, mostly NIN, there is always someone in contention about irrelevant, tiny, details that they blow out of proportion.
    They argue about it to death and somehow like to make it the most significant part of the release?
    Who gives a shit if it's labeled as an L.P. or E.P.?
    Why can't they just be content that there is something new and unique released instead of the constant nick-picking to the point it barely counts as critique.

    It's formulaic at this point and I've read these same complaints every single time there is a new release:
    "Oh such and such isn't such and such album"; Then go listen to that album if that is what you want to hear.
    "This song sounds similar to this previous existing song and that's why I hate the entire album cause it's pure laziness"; no one is forcing you to listen to it.
    "I could have done it better"; Then go do it, I'll wait for you to release it, give it a listen and tell you my honest option about it and see if you can stack up against said artist you are trying to shit all over.

    Almost every album since the 90s could lose 2-5 songs and be a superior listen, the amount that actually warrant being over 40 or so minutes and don't have same-y or repetitive songs that drag it down overall are in an extreme minority and I'm happy so many artists from mainstream to obscure are starting to focus more on quality over quantity.

    Cause on the internet everyone is equal so you can read every little trivial shit someone has somehow decided to talk about for days and days, annoying to everyone but himself.

    On the other side you got some impressively great contribution to a discussion sometimes, because some person decided to try his best to contribute something very rewarding to everyone involved.

    Gotta move the conversation ahead while it's possible I guess. Can be hard. When in drought of content, there is a need of a core of users bringing quality content themselves. Oh well, whatever, let's just go outside.

    I don't find this controversial at all. Once the CD era was in full swing, many albums fell victim to the tendency to make them bloated and overindulgent simply because the time constraints of vinyl had been subverted. This resulted in self-editing going out the window a lot of the time. I can think of many albums from the 90s that would have been better with some tracks removed, even albums that are already brilliant. Not sure what time period it was when people finally realized that albums needed to be shorter again, but I'm glad it happened.
