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 Some seriously intense and raw music March 21 2007
By Ndt
Format:Audio CD
Track 1 and 6 are uncompromisingly heavy. By heavy I mean the hardness of the bands performance as a whole but also emotionally heavy - because so much heavy metal lacks the ambience that these guys have learned to sustain - particulary with Chino's resounding vocals and the background music that serves as atmosphere. I think that this kind of music is an aquired taste but that is only my opinion. However, more importantly, once you have "acquired" it, the music can be supremely satisfying. I would encourage you to cultivate an ear for this music because it may not come easy. The first 5 times I heard Hexagram I thought it was too rash and discordant. Once I got the feel of it then it was a trip. Track 6 is the same in that it seems too angry but there is a real beauty if you can tune in with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beatiful wall of sound Jan. 22 2007
By Kikko
Format:Audio CD
The biggest category of those who don't understand this album are the late-coming White Pony worshippers. Sometimes I wish these closeminded wimps didn't get hooked on Deftones in the first place.

So what the self-titled album all about? It's about combining heavy and beautiful - just like the suggestive cover art of a human scull with flowers. The album opens with "Hexagram", throwing the listener head first into the low range rhythm guitar. How can anyone claiming to be a Deftones fan not like the ferocious chorus "Worship! Play! Play! Worship! Play! Play!" over distorted Stef riffs and quick paced Abe drumming is beyond me. The other such heavy song is the following "Needles and Pins", at the end of which Chino fades out screaming "Who want to f$%^ with us now!!!..." over and over.

After these two monster songs the album steps down a bit, revealing the beautiful "Minerva" - possibly the highest point in combining beautiful lyrics over some seriously heavy music. Deathblow and Battleaxe are also nice songs, with really cool guitar intros (I absolutely love them!).

Deftones tried a little different approach on this album - instead of doing the switching between soft and heavy within one song (which became formulaic after a while), they just went with flow, and tried to actually combine these opposing elements into cohesive sound. This is why this album sounds so great. And people, before reviewing it, buy yourselves some good stereos, then listen to the album really loud, and THEN tell me what you think.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ok, so it might not be for everyone March 21 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album gets mixed reviews from people: either you like it, or you don't. There's not really any in between. Though at first I didn't like the sound of it, I'm now totally addicted to it. I think Hexagram is a great starter for the CD. Other highlights include Deathblow, When Girls Telephone Boys, and Battle Axe. Moana is undoubtedly an amazing song to end the album with, and Anniversary, while not really having any definition, is still a quality piece as well. Lowlights include Bloody Cape, which is a song definitely not typical of Deftones style. Overall I'd say this album was very good, though if your new to Deftones I'd recommend hearing White Pony first.

That didn't stop me. I didn't let this album stop me. Forget Linkin Park (pardon the electronics). I call this 'diecore'.
Diehards only!!!!! You may feel hardcore on some songs, not on all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars cool July 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.
That's all.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Deftones" give the band a clearly defined sound.
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... Read more
