Product Description

Product Description

Sacramento's Deftones return with their much-anticipated second album, Around The Fur, a furious, hard-hitting blast of confrontational sound. The Deftones have already established themselves nationally as one of the hardest and most powerful new bands to arrive in years, and Around The Fur is destined to catapult them to massive success. Certified Gold by the RIAA (6/99).


Refusant de se laisser enfermer dans le carcan du neometal, les Deftones invoquent leur multiethnicité (deux Mexicains, un Chinois et un Blanc) pour revendiquer une diversité d'influences permettant de toucher un public très vaste. Ça, c'est la théorie. En pratique, il faut cependant appeler les choses par leur nom. Les Deftones ne jouent ni du grunge, ni du punk-rock (et encore moins du hardcore, contrairement à ce que l'on a pu lire parfois), ni du hard rock, ni même du metal "normal" (quoique l'énergie qu'ils dégagent s'y prête volontiers), mais bel et bien du neometal. Et tant pis si l'on range souvent un peu tout et n'importe quoi dans cette catégorie. Car, même si les Deftones savent se montrer cajoleurs à l'occasion, lorsque le tempo se fait plus lent et la voix de Chico Moreno plus langoureuse, ils ont plutôt tendance à appuyer singulièrement leurs accords... peut-être aussi pour se débarrasser des ressemblances trop flagrantes avec Korn qui leur furent reprochées à l'époque d'Adrenaline, leur premier album. On notera par ailleurs la présence, en invité d'honneur, de Max Cavalera, l'ex-leader de Sepultura parti fonder Soulfly, sur le titre "Head Up" (dédié à la mémoire de Dana, le beau-fils de Max, décédé dans un accident de la route en août 1996). --Hervé SK Guégano

Before this CD, my favorite Deftones album was White Pony. I had all their CD's except Around the Fur. One day I saw it in a store and I had to buy it. I thought to myself,"It can't be better than White Pony." I WAS WRONG!!! This is ART!
1.My Own Summer(shove it) 10/10 Aggressive, Yet the lyrics still remain poetic.
2.Lhabia 10/10 My second favorite. The chorus is so awesome!
3.Mascara 9/10 Great, but not perfect. It seems to drag at times.
4.Around the Fur 10/10 Love this song. Not my favorite, but it rocks.
5.Rickets 8/10 Good song, I just don't like the verses.
6.Be Quiet and Drive(far away) 9/10 It's good, but not what everybody says. Fun Fact: Listen to this and then Chevelle's Send the Pain Below. Chevelle must be Deftones fans, huh?
7.Lotion 10/10 Favorite song on the album. One of the best songs EVER. I MEAN THAT.
8.Dai the Flu 10/10 Great verses. Great chorus. Great song.
9.Headup 9/10 Good, but unusual for Deftones. Rap verses and a weird chorus? Not bad, weird though.
10.MX 10/10 Cool song. Best chorus in a while.
Hidden Track 7/10 This is a good song, but you expect a little better from Deftones.
Overall 10/10 Favorite Deftones album and one of my favorite albums of all time.

I hate it when people compare Deftones to Korn, Limp Bizkit, or any other nu-metal band out there. In fact, I hate the fact that people label music and the labels they give can come across as 'cool' or 'uncool' at any given time. The truth is, Deftones do their own thing. They do what they want, and don't compromise for anyone- which is what makes this cd so awesome. It's what makes the band themselves awesome. I've come across many people who love the Deftones, many who hate them, and many who think they're 'alright'. I guess you have to make your own mind up, but for me, the Deftones rule.
If you love heavy yet melodic rock music which is aggressive and violent but at the same time ethereal and soothing, then this is for you. Hell, if you like this sort of music, you should own this album already! Classic stuff. My fav song on here is Be Quiet and Drive, and yes, I know that's a cliche, but words can't actually do justice to how good this song is. My Own Summer also kicks serious ass- it was the first song I heard of them, and I haven't looked back. All the songs on here will rock you. Even Damone, which is hidden right at the end of MX, is worth fastforwarding to (and that is saying something given that you have to hold down the button for at least 2-3 minutes solid!)
All I can say is, you can find yourself in three categories of emotion towards Deftones: Love, Hate or Tolerance- but if you know what is good for you, you will buy this album NOW and love it for the duration of your rock loving life!

Around The Fur Is A Masterpiece. Many consider it nu-metal. But really, what in the hell is nu-metal. Still, the Deftones are continually crowned as the knigs of nu-metal alongside Korn and even Incubus. Anyway, the Deftones broke away from the music created through their debut album Adrenaline and did something brand new. The result is amazing, and is heralded as one of the best metal albums of the 90's. Radio favorites like My Own Summer (Shove It) and Be Quiet Drive (Far Away) mix with headbanging fan favorites like Lhabia, Lotion, and Headup. The first two songs are unrelenting metal in your face, and then the third song Mascara sets in. A ballad-esque tune about a chick gives the listener a chance to catch his or her breath. Then the title track somes forth. Unforgettable intro with a mysterious chorus. Rickets follows with more headbanging for sure. Then they slow it down with Be Quiet And Drive. Enter Lotion. Old School deftones right there, a great chorus. Dai The Flu succeeds it and brings a slightly slower song, and a fan favoite. Headup is right after that and it features Max Cavalera of Sepultra (now Soulfly) and has a kick ass ending. Mx closes the album and features Annalynn Cunningham on backing vocals (that's Abe the drummer's wife). Wait until 19:32 of Mx and you can even hear Chino taking a hit from his bong

When i first got my own copy of White Pony i thought that getting any other Deftones cd wouldn't be worth it because there was no way they could live up. So to try and prove myself right i downloaded My Owm Summer and Mascara as a test. i was stunned. i immediately went out and bought the cd and i've been in love since. Here's a list of the songs.
1. My Own Summer 10/10 - As soon as you hear the fist pound of the drums your hit with one of the best cd starting songs ever.
2. Lhabia 11/10 - This is one of my favorite songs on the cd. It's slows down the flow of the cd getting you ready for Mascara.
3. Mascara 10/10 - Slow... but i love it
4. Around the Fur 11/10 - right up there with Lhabia
5. Rickets 8/10 - Great song, but doesn't live up to the others. But it is pretty short. C'mon the weakest song on the album is an 8!! go buy this cd.
6. Be Quiet and Drive (far Away) 10.5/10 - Now most people keep saying this is the best song on the album. I wouldn't go that far but it is a great song worthy of recognition
7. Lotion 12/10 - This is my favorite song on the album and my favorite Deftones song. Of all the reviews i've seen on this song people either love it or they hate it. you know where i stand.
8. Dai the Flu 9/10 - i really like this song but it's still not as good as the rest.
9. Headup 11/10 - this or Lhabia is my 2nd favorite song on the album
10. MX 10/10 - one of the deftones coolest sounding songs.
Secret Track. Damone 10/10 - Well worth the fast-forwarding (32min 36 sec)
All in all this cd flows beautifully and sounds even better. I love this cd and if you buy it, you will too.
