As of the time it was posted (and possibly still now) this is the best album that KoRn has ever made! Their hit "Thoughtless" is outstanding - possibly my all-time favorite KoRn song. Hollow Life, One More Time, and Alone I Break aare all great songs too. Wake Up Hate took a little while to grow on me, but now I love it too. I would highly recommend this for any metal fan!

With the hit, "Here to Stay", this CD is one of KoRn's best.

"First, a confession: for the most part, this album was my first introduction to really listening to KoRn. I had heard a few of their songs in the past and had placed them in the dead nu-metal camp in my eyes. For some reason though, I thought I should give them a chance and since Untouchables is more recent than their earlier stuff, perhaps it would be different. I was very, very surprised.
This album is so creative and so different from the nu-metal genre, shedding away the hard-to-digest rapping in lieu for more melodic vocal melodies (which is something this album is exceedingly good for). The occasional programmed drum beats over the rest of the band are done to great effect and the subtle synths used behind many of the tracks are fantastically layered.
I was left with one clear impression after hearing this album; Untouchables is almost hauntingly vampy. Those in the vampire subculture would find much to be interested in with this album. I love it."

"Mikey Beinhorn did very nicely on Soundgarden when he co-mixed DOWN ON THE UPSIDE, so no reason he should overly screw up with Korn. Well, no wonder that this 958th review of UNTOUCHABLES is one of the many more positive than negative. Some will not be too happy at the keyboard add-ons, but that Head, Fieldy and Munky have no prob drowning them out makes them easy to ignore. And there's some actual melody here and there; "Alone I Break" is as close as this version of Korn ever got to a ballad (nice twangy guitar in the middle verses, too). And if you don't want Korn getting 'soft', that and 'No One's There' are about the only instances. The intensity of 'Here to Stay,' 'Hating,' 'One More Time,''Embrace,' and 'Wake up Hate' come pretty close to scary, all the usual bent-nail riffs and raw vocal choruses doing exactly what they did on the 4 Korn recordings previous to this. Beinhorn (formerly of experimental post-punk band Material; he also produced Hole's 1998 release CELEBRITY SKIN) ought to mainly be credited for adding as much fuzz to the mix as possible without actually obscuring any of the good parts. This even works with the drum bits, though maybe he mixed Dave Silveria a little low overall. Forgivable. As for Johnathan Davis... you already know what you're getting. We all have a voice like his inside our heads at least sometimes, and we know it. Few lyric writers can be as articulate about being inarticulate, and he hasn't forgotten any of his multiple personalities (lunatic shriek, baby babble, nose-job trill, full-out bull roar), either. I do kinda wish the relatively upbeat 'Here to Stay' could be swapped with the closing 'No One's There,' because then this CD's feel would be more 'Here's all the stuff that's driving me insane, but it's not gonna drown me and if you think it will, well, screw you' instead of the barely-hanging-onto-the-wreckage feel the CD ends with. No law against going back to the first track, though, and then putting the CD away then if you want. Some folks will wonder out loud how much of this sort of thing the world needs, but yours truly always feels a lot more civilized after I listen to these guys. Kind of like they had the nervous breakdown for me. Thanks, fellas. Good one. And no 'April Fool' jokes intended.
