Product Description

Amazon.ca

While alt/nu/rap-metal typically bounds between two emotional poles--pissed-off and extremely pissed-off--and a musical range to match, the Deftones continue to push the genre's narrow boundaries outward on their fourth big-label release. Mic man Chino Moreno's patent yowl belies a range of emotion rare in the genus, while guitarist Stephen Carpenter seasons his buzz-saw assault with some industrial-strength riff textures and mixer Frank Delgado's spooky, synthetic textures further underscore Moreno's blossoming lyrical impressionism. If they stray uncomfortably close to jagged-rhythms formula in the album's opening quarter, the almost sunny sensuality of "Good Morning Beautiful" heralds some welcome shafts of light amidst the storm clouds. From there on, the mood drifts from languor ("Deathblow") to brooding ("Battle-axe," "Lucky You"), while "Bloody Cape" edges the band ever closer to traditional pop hooks before drifting into the resigned, psych-torpor of "Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event." A compelling and encouraging album--even if it's taken them 15 years to get this far. Enhanced CD features include studio and day-in-the-life-of band video footage, as well as 150 candid photos. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

After two gold albums, the Deftones broke it wide open with 2000's platinum White Pony. Now, after global sales of more than 4 million albums and having played to over 3 million fans, the band's self-titled fourth ablbum, as erotic as it is brutal, as relentless as it is gentle, rocktes the Grammy winning Deftones to the top of modern rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Music is Dr. drab July 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you like Linkin Park, hey, whatever floats your boat. They suck, but if you like them, more power to you. But to have the audacity to write a long critical review in which you spend time comparing Linkin Park to the Deftones and saying that the Deftones will be "gone by Wednesday," is so much garbage. I think the "gone by Wednesday" thing can definately be said for Linkin Park. 15 years down the road, no one is going to care about them. The Deftone's have been releasing albums for ten years now and have been around as a band a lot longer. They're obviously doing SOMETHING write in order to get such a huge underground fan base and sky-rocketing sales.
I also like the thing that Dr. Music said about the Deftones trying to sound heavier on this album than they have before. He says it as though it's some sort of negative slump to the music among many. You know what? Deftones are a heavy band, dude, and that's what heavy bands do. They get HEAVIER! And the good ones like the Deftones switch things up a little bit and try something different. I think that maybe Dr. Music would like Deftones a little more if they tried some of the musical "genius" of Linkin Park's approach, (i.e.) have a crappy rapper for every verse with lyrics that sound like "I don't know why i'm not liked, you didn't see me you didn't recognize, understand why when i cry, didn't even know when i tried to hide, doesn't make sense" and blah, blah, shoot me, while after that, for the chorus, some pimply white kid cryptically whines about how no one liked him in High School.

Deftones' self titled release "Deftones" can probably be seen as a stepping stone by a band that is continually on an upward accent to what will surely become rock musical greatness.
As a fan of the band since "Around the Fur" was released it is plainly obvious that each album they release is better than the one prior to it, which means "Deftones" is probably thier best album yet, but thier next release will probably be even better.
They seem to be very much like 'Faith no more' in that aspect.
Not only have the band improved thier songwriting on this album, they have also developed a keen set of ears for audio production too.The album sounds amazing and has a higher quality than thier previous albums, the songs are more simple and heavy, yet more complicated musically.
Chino Moreno's vocals are more high pitched and vocally intense than on any previous albums, and Abe Cunningham's drums are somewhat less busy, yet harder hitting than before.
As for the guitars, i think Stef Carpenters sludgy,crunchy 7 string assault is more like Messugah and Fear Factory,than "White Pony" and Chi Chengs bass is just massive and and explosive.DJ Frank also gets his rightfull place performing and entire track of his own musical taste.
Clearly a very Heavy ,bitter ,poisonous and intense album, some fans might not like it, but a lot more will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the "D" in deftones is for "Different" June 24 2004
By john
Format:Audio CD
This cd is not "PURE GENIUS" . . . or "OFF THE HOOK" . . . or "THE GREATEST CD OF ALL TIME". This is just a good listen. I have been a fan of the deftones ever since Around the Fur hit the shelves. I like the other three cds and i like this one too.. . . but this one seems different in a way that is hard to explain. Chino seems more pissed than he usually is on his other records. He's letting his emotions flare which sometimes is a little annoying. Stef's guitars are awesomely awesome on all songs i think. Frank gives the music more of an eerie feel.
Here is the lowdown on the 11 songs with a 1 to 10 scale.
Hexagram - i like stef's strings on this song. the lyrics are a little strange but hey that's deftones for ya. 9/10
Needles and Pins - i love this song. maybe my favorite on the album. i think they played too much with the distortion on the guitars but its still an awesome song. 10/10
Minerva - i think this is a fairly good song. nothing to write home about. its definately not one of those songs you get stuck in your head. i like stef on the guitar again on this song. 8/10
Good Morning Beautiful - if needles and pins isnt my favorite song on the album that this song is. My brother hates the deftones with a passion and even he admits this song is pretty good. once again awesome guitar work. 10+/10
Deathblow - i'm sorry this song just doesnt do too much for me. its too slow and too long. but hey i'm not saying its a bad one. i just constantly find myself skipping over it. 7/10
When Girls Telephone Boys - (that rarely happens in my case) there doesnt seem to be much rhythem in this song. arguably the heaviest song on the album. i like it when chino shuts up for about 3 seconds and u hear stef rip up the strings.

5.0 out of 5 stars THEE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD. FCUK LINKIN PARK. June 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ok all you anti-deftones morons. what is your problem? seriously! What is so fcuking great about bands like disturbed and linkin park. They suck. I had the misfortune of going to the summer sanitarium tour last year in minnesota. The deftones cancelled. and then linkin park came out, they were terrible. I saw this kid a few rows up from me and he kept singing into his hand and miming all of the linkin park songs. i just kept thinking "why is this kid alive?" i wanted to take his life and every fan of linkin park in the building. that's when i realized how alone i really was. I was standing in the metrodome with thousands upon thousands of other people, but i felt like I was by myself. and i was. and i still am. see i like the deftones because they hate people like you Dr Music. Their music has something that not many bands have anymore. energy. when i was standing in minnesota i wished a plane would've come crashing into the building. and it would have hit Dr Music while he was backstage having gay sex with linkin park.

4.0 out of 5 stars I read an article that this album had little or no riffs
That didn't stop me. I didn't let this album stop me. Forget Linkin Park (pardon the electronics). I call this 'diecore'.

I don't want to hate on any bands. Linkin Park is good for what it is, and they seem like nice people, but they do not even compare to the Deftones even a little. Read more
