"Oildale" starts off extremely heavy. To the point where you want to just break down and start headbanging, no matter where you are at the time. As with many KoRn songs, the bass plays a major role in this single, and gives it that key sound that just makes the song so much better. Once the verse starts, a true creepiness takes place - one that will unsettle any listener. As always, Jonathan Davis does an outstanding job on the vocals, capturing the mood of the song perfectly. The chorus comes in, and the entire song just switches vibes again to that heavier state; one that would instantly create a mosh at any live show. What I absolutely love most about this song is it's ability to change tempo so quickly, yet it takes nothing away from the single itself. "Oildale" actually reminds me a lot of "Coming Undone, " because they both feature heavy riffs, and have an amazing breakdown that just fits right in. The entire song, in my opinion, is a metal masterpiece - every part of it is great. Ray's snare and kickwork during the verse just adds that perfect sound where the song is quiet, yet still very metal at the same time. Overall, a great song, and definitely worth getting.
