Been a fan of Deftones since 1995, and I have been following them ever since. And to me, they got better after White Pony. White Pony was transitional album, but I thought they have continually improved since then. With this album and Diamond Eyes I hear rejuvenation within the band ten-fold. Improved their songwriting skills, the production improved, and you can tell they enjoy playing together. I dug Saturday Night Wrist a lot, but you could tell it was forced and there was turmoil. These two records sound like a band that have found themselves again. I don't get the White Pony is their best record, their most transitional album as a band, yes, but I think they have improved since then. I dug Self-Titled way more myself.

Best review I've read for this, because it's so well written and not just because I agree with it. This is a pretty underwhelming album for me (a big Deftones fan) but I'm hoping it's just a grower. With that said, I was already starting to really love Diamond Eyes by this point.

Great review.

That being said, I disagree with most of it. I actually found this to be their most interesting album since White Pony. Songs like Entombed, Tempest, and Rosemary I found to be invigorating, especially Rosemary.

And I don't understand the beef with Chino's vox, guys. He sounds better than ever in my opinion.

Kind of weird how KNY is not featured in 'best new music'. Guess the staff decided to not suck Deftones' cock this time. Just imagine how out of place this 2.5 review will look on the wiki page. Edgy!

Yeah, it's kinda weird considering how the staff loved Diamond Eyes so much and now they've more or less disowned them.

WTF bro!?!? How dare you, you should just stop listening to music!! OMG!

Seriously though, I thought this upon my first listen to the album. I was like "meh." I liked Diamond Eyes better as well. Then I started listening to it and around the 3rd time, it really grew on me and I really enjoy it. I think it's great. But maybe it's because "Entombed" is simply amazing and one of their best songs.

A couple of songs do drag on and on though. And the ending to Rosemary..? It's an identical riff to the one song on Diamond Eyes. So that was ehh too.
