Product Description

Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Metal Album of the 90s April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Deftones are a band who go against the grain,constantly evolve and sound like no other band around.They have been placed in a genre with bands like Korn,Slipknot, Linkin Park etc....this is,to me, a great injustice to a band whos music is far more layered,deep and innovative than all these bands.
'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
Fist-10/10- beautiful!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. Jan. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
First off, this isn't my favorite Deftones album. Truthfully, I don't have any favorite Deftones album. Each album, in my opinion, is a separate state of mind, and a different piece of art. Around The Fur is by far their best-flowing album, White Pony is their most ecletic cd, and their self-titled is their most beautiful disc, even if it is a bit short. What, then, makes Adrenaline so special compared to the other albums? It not only showed what was to come from these Sacto, CA rockers, but it kicked ass the whole time.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Debut from Even Stronger Band Dec 1 2003
By Keith A
Format:Audio CD
This Deftones album, "Adrenaline", is a piece of the base that forms the nu-metal pyramid. It partly holds all of the other bands of their time, and future bands to come.
"Adrenaline" starts out with a subtle bang as "Bored" begins with it's growling guitar intro. Then it sends you into an even louder and heavier journey that lasts until the final note in "Fireal".
Chino's emotions are felt through listening to this album like no other. Each song has its own tone and its own personality. You don't even have to listen to the lyrics, you just just feel it in the words.
With talent like that, talent that can reach out, grab the listener, and throw them against the wall...it's impossible not to give this album a five star rating.
If you heard the Deftones on the radio, or heard about them from a friend, go pick up this album. If you like this one, be sure to check out "Around the Fur", "White Pony", and the self titled.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't get "bored" listening to Adrenaline Aug. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sorry if that header sounds a little cheesy, but it's true.
In 1995, the Deftones started their incredible career with "Adrenaline". Yes, it's their debut album, which is why it sounds so raw. But the rawness only adds to the greatness. From the moment Chino's lyrics first emerge ("Hear me spit on you, wither I...") overtop quiet, shredding riffs in "Bored", you know this is going to be a great album. Chino Moreno, IMHO, is one of the most underrated vocalists ever. This guy goes from a quiet whisper, to a furious scream, to angelic crooning...all in the same song. Can Good Charlotte do that? Didn't think so.
Some of my favorite tracks include...actually, all of them. Yes, my friends, this is one of the few CD's in my collection that I can listen to all the way through without skipping any tracks. Every song on here is great. This album is raw, angry, beautiful, catchy, hard-hitting emo-core metal. And when it comes to that music genre, NO ONE does it like the 'Tones. (You listening, Finch?) It's not quite as heavy as "Around The Fur", or as breathtaking as "White Pony" ("Deftones" is good too), but it does have a nice combination of the two, and it definitely should be in your collection, even if your favorite music is free-form jazz.
"You know I want to pick you up, but they don't want you to..."
