Take A Look In The Mirror is the sixth studio album by American Nu-Metal band Korn, released in 2003. It is the first album self-produced by the band. Korn explained that they wanted fans to hear the music as it should be. They returned to a more aggressive sound as featured on their earlier albums, with guitarists Brian "Head" Welch and James "Munky" Shaffer mostly utilizing thick, heavy distortion and the occasional clean tones for contrast. The album peaked at number 9 of the Billboard 200 album charts and was certified platinum.
The track "Did My Time" was previously released as a single for the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The single debuted and peaked at number thirty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Korn's first top-forty hit in the United States. "Did My Time" gave Korn another Grammy nomination in the Best Metal Performance category. The track "Right Now" was accompanied by a provocative cartoon video animated by Spike and Mike.
The album also contains a reworked and re-recorded version of the track "Alive", which had previously only been released on the band's first demo, Neidermeyer's Mind. The track "Play Me" features rapper Nas, making Take A Look In The Mirror the first Korn album since Follow The Leader [MOVLP667] to feature such a collaboration. Jonathan Davis plays bagpipes on "Let's Do This Now", marking the return of a tradition that has previous to the album, only been absent on Untouchables.
