Certified Gold by the RIAA (7/99).
Call it what you want: emo-core, alternative, sneaker metal...the Deftones seemed the most unlikely quartet to come out on Madonna's Maverick Records. The music is agro, abrasive, and damn near primal from the disc's first few seconds. Tool-like whisperings of front-man Chino Moreno can bring the mood from disconcerting to downright dangerous in seconds. Heavy, chunky guitar riffs, mad raps, and testy tempo changes make this a must-have for fans of whisper-to-a-primal-scream alterna-rock. Killer tracks: "Bored" and "7 Words". --Denise Sheppard

The brutal songs on Adrenaline are more than the best example of their style. It shoves pure rage into your face with its obnoxious and sometimes unintelligible lyrics and attitude, and is one of the most positively convincing 90s metal albums. After the first couple of listens, it sounded to me like extremely unvaried guitar riffing, weak melody and talentless screaming. But after awhile, Adrenaline opens up and reveals its strengths as a very heavy, direct, and emotionally powerful offering.Read more ›
'Adrenaline', although i love the other three emensely, is still my favourite Deftones album. The raw aggression of this record is breath taking.Songs like 'seven words','engine no. nine" and "nosebleed" are moshpit classics. The band also illustrate their differences from other "nu-metal",(i hate calling the Deftones this), bands with songs that are as atmospheric,dark and moody as they are aggressive. Songs like "Firreal" and 'Root' indicate the way in which the Deftones were to evolve in the next few records they released. The hidden track 'Fist" , is in my opinion of the most beautiful songs around. Adrenaline is the best album in its genre period.
1.Bored 8/10- the most radio friendly song on the album,great none the less.
2.Minus Blindfold- 9/10 awesome song,Stef displaying song real skills on the guitar.
3.One Weak-9/10 great song, Chinos voice shines on this track
4.Nosebleed-9/10- aggresion,power,anguish, what more can i say?
5.Root- 9/10 -another great song,very infectious chorus,great ending
6.Nosebleed-7/10-probably my least favourite song on the album but decent none the less
7.Seven Words- 10/10-What can i say? you want song to mosh to, here it is,a pure adrenaline rush
8.-Birthmark-10/10- My favourite song on the album ,very melodic at the start bulids up to one of the greatest finales with Stef banging out a superd riff
9-Engine no nine-8/10- another great song oozing raw power
10-Firreal-10/10-a pointer of things to come,and great illustration of what this band is about, atomosphere,power and melody
When I mean it "kicked ass," I don't mean the whole album sounds like Slipknot with an odd groove to it. No, not at all. Half of the songs are very quiet, at least at the beginning, and build up to a colossal wall of sound. Some good examples of mellow-psycho tracks are "Lifter," "One Weak," and "Birthmark." Then, of course, you have your mosh songs. Prime cuts are "Bored," "7 Words," "Nosebleed," and "Engine Number 9." These songs will make you jump out of your seat, literally. When I first listened to "7 Words" while driving on the highway, I started bouncing up and down, and I sped up to about 85 or so. Needless to say, I figured out that self-control is necessary when one is driving and listening to Adrenaline.
After the first nine tracks, you get into a whole different world. It is hinted at in "One Weak" slightly, even a little in "Root," but not capitalized on until "Fireal," ... Then...you have, in my opinion, the best Deftones song of all-time; "Fist," track 11, the secret track. It refers to a lost love, yet this song, like many other Def songs, have no need of understand what Chino is exactly saying to know what he means.Read more ›

Great sounding album. No regrets on this purchase. However, the song "Fist" (short hidden track after "Fireal" on the CD) is not included on this release, and it's... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jordan Friesen
