Deftones: Ranked

I've been on a massive Deftones kick since I got out for summer holiday, and I finally completed my Deftones discography this afternoon after years of debating whether or not buying Adrenaline was worth it. Luckily, I found an acceptable used copy of it for less than $5 while I was browsing through my local record store's clearance section.

As much as I love Deftones, I can't say that I enjoy a single track from this album. (2.0/5.0)
Around the Fur

Around the Fur is the most overrated album in the band's discography. My Own Summer, and Be Quiet and Drive are the only tracks I ever come back to. The album also has some of the worst album art I've ever seen. (2.7/5.0)

The self-titled record is a major let down after an album as strong as White Pony. I appreciate the heavier direction that the band took on this record, but the style was executed much better on later records. Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event is a fantastic track though. (2.9/5)
Koi No Yokan

Koi No Yokan is Deftones playing it safe after two incredibly strong records, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The singles are the album's strongest tracks, and excluding White Pony's songs, Rosemary is probably my favorite Deftones track. (3.8/5.0)
Saturday Night Wrist

SNW is Deftones' most lush record, and occasionally beats out Diamond Eyes for me; however, Diamond Eyes will always have a slight edge due to nostalgia. (4.2/5.0)
Diamond Eyes

Diamond Eyes riffs incredibly hard, and this album is the best Deftones album as far as the band's heavier elements are concerned. I've always seen it as Saturday Night Wrist with 8-string guitars and a bit less going on compositionally. The only element that occasionally hinders the experience is Chino's screams, which can sound absolutely painful at times (and not in the good way). (4.4/5.0)
White Pony

Diamond Eyes was my first Deftones album back in 2010, but White Pony was the album that made me fall in love with most of the band's discography. Every song rules, and this album strikes the perfect balance between the band's heavy, catchy, and ethereal elements. This is definitely a desert island album for me. (5.0/5.0)
