The Nothing is much cleaner album than its predecessor, production doesn't feel as busy or messy. Everything comes through on its own and adds to the composition of the song. While there's still plenty of electronic work with synths and keyboards it doesn't overwhelm the listener and distract from the songs. Oddly tuned guitars and weird chords mixed with a funk inspired and heavy bass line help elevate the songs on this album. The weirdness can easily feel forced at times but here it comes naturally despite some basic and borderline cringy lyrics like on the song H@Rd3R.
It's really good to see a band like Korn still being able to produce music on level like this decades after their debut and even after their prime. They haven't traded anything that made them original for more popularity, you either like them or you don't. The Nothing is certainly their best album in years and maybe one of their best efforts period. It's worth a listen as a Korn fan, as a metal fan, and a general music fan.
