Korn's break-out 1998 album, "Follow The Leader," is the moment where the Bakersfield Five went from semi-underground underdogs to mainstream MTV heroes. Almost overnight, as soon as "Got the Life" hit, things would never be the same again. Helping to, for better or worse, usher in a new generation of rockers, Korn proved to be both iconic and experimental on their third effort.

With producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains) taking over from Ross Robinson (who helmed the first two albums), "Follow the Leader" is slightly less visceral and gritty than the band's previous material. From the groovy, whisper-to-a-scream opener of "It's On!" it's obvious that this is a different kind of Korn, albeit, a funkier and more experimental outfit with the the benefit of experience working with them.

Even if you're not a huge fan, you've got to give Korn credit for their blend of hip hop and aggressive metal riffs which basically started a new wave metal movement. Since their debut, "Life Is Peachy", which didn't fare so well, Korn have developed and enhanced their style creating their own distinct sound on "Follow the Leader". The first single, 'Got The Life' features a seductive groove mixed with vocals not dissimilar to that of Mike Patton of Faith No More. 'Children of the Korn' includes guest vocals by Ice Cube amongst it's catchy bass and rap sounds. And to top it all off, the outstandingly funny 'All In The Family', a duet with Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit, makes one realise that Korn are not necessarily the serious fellas they often appear to be.
