Product Description

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
