What the fuck is that? Issues I enjoyed a lot more. I actually liked the instrumental interludes most and the last song.
That said, I've sold or traded in very few of my CDs over the years. Follow the Leader and Issues aren't in my collection anymore. Whereas the first two albums will never leave. In a way, I wish I'd kept Issues.
(I still have my copy of Untouchables, but that's only because when I was selling them no one wanted it)
Interesting it was the other way for me; I got Korn and Life is Peachy and while I liked some songs like Blind, Lies, Clown, A.D.I.D.A.S., and No Place to Hide, I just wasn't as into those albums as I was FTL and Issues. Now, I hold their first 4 albums in equal light
