Review

Although their sound and approach have since gone beyond parody, it's undeniable that when Korn first appeared on the scene in the mid-'90s, they were one of the few bands at the time bold enough to align themselves with metal. Additionally, their sound and approach were copied repeatedly by other acts (you know it well by now -- detuned/rubbery riffs, talked verses/screamed choruses, etc.). So when it was time to make the jump to arenas, Korn patterned their own multi-band tour after Lollapalooza and Ozzfest, dubbing it the Family Values tour. But after Stone Temple Pilots and Staind co-headlined a version of the tour in 2001, no further Family Values tours were organized, leading fans to believe that it may have gone the way of the dodo. Come 2006, Korn decided to resuscitate the traveling road show once more, inviting a variety of bands (including the Deftones, Flyleaf, Stone Sour, plus others) to join them. Later the same year, the 16-track Family Values Tour 2006 sampler was issued, and while not all of the bands from the tour were featured, all of the best-known ones were. Quite a few expected tracks are featured (Deftones' "My Own Summer," Korn's "Blind"), as well as a few surprises, such as Richard Patrick joining Flyleaf for a cover of U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)," plus a pair of tracks which see Korn joined by guest vocalists -- Chino Moreno on "Shoots and Ladders/Wicked" and Corey Taylor on "Freak on a Leash." While it should appeal to 2006 Family Values attendees, all the non-stop riffs, fury, and roaring vocals eventually begin to blend into one big, colorless, angst-filled blob. [2006 also saw the release of a clean version of the album.] ~ Greg Prato
