'The heavy stuff is really, really heavy, like, really aggressive, and the stuff that's sweet and weird or whatever is sweeter and weirder. A lot of people will probably compare it to White Pony, because that was one of the most diverse records that we did. This one's probably the most diverse record we've done' Chino Moreno. The Deftones' first album in three years, Saturday Night Wrist follows the band's fourth consecutive gold or platinum album, the 2003 self-titled disc that was the Grammyr-winning group's highest charter at #2. Produced by Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction) and former Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, Saturday Night Wrist is bombastic yet vulnerable, aggressive yet thoughtful combinations that have made the Deftones among the most respected and acclaimed bands in hard rock.
Back when the world was ruled by primitive nu-metal gorillas barking dysfunctional rhymes over recycled rock riffs, Deftones set themselves apart with a wild experimental streak that saw the group incorporating influences as diverse as the Cure, Ornette Coleman, and Aphex Twin. Produced by Bob Erzin (Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction), the Sacramento band's fifth full-length release, Saturday Night Wrist, features the kind of envelope-pushing fans have come to expect, shifting between gloomy ballads ("Xerces," "Beware") and apocalyptic rockers ("Rapture," "Rats! Rats! Rats!") that in an instant allow singer Chino Moreno to take his dynamic voice from a whisper to a scream with help from guest vocalists such as System of a Down's Serj Tankian and Giant Drag's Annie Hardy. -Aidin Vaziri --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Deftones delivers another innovative and barrier pushing album, this is definitly a band whose sounds keep progressing and evolving into a beautiful thing. My personal favorites on the album are Mein (with Serj from Syste of a Down!) and the instrumental L,L,R,R. This is a laid back yet heavy record, a very enjoyable release of 2006.
That's why I find it hard to conclude that the new album is a bit dissapointing here and there. They've just gone overboard with the spacey interludes on this one. Whereas White Pony's 'Digital Bath' was a refreshing exercise in loungey melody and a welcome break from the constant riffing, nobody wants a Deftones album with five (!) virtually guitarless songs that just seem to go on and on (that's Cherry Waves, U.U.D.D., Xerces, Pink Cellphone and Riviere).
Luckily, they reinvent themselves brilliantly on some tracks; Rapture, Beware, Mein, Rats!Rats!Rats! and Combat are not to be missed and are, in themselves, enough reason to go get this album and not feel cheated. Hole in the Earth and Kimdracula are solid, unremarkable tracks in Deftones' oeuvre - but that still makes them better songs than what a lot of other bands ever produce.

I own this album in CD format, and MP3. I decided to purchase the Vinyl LP after receiving a turntable for a gift. Read more

If you enjoyed Deftones self-titled, I STRONGLY advise you pick up a copy of SNW. The sound is mostly of their more recent kind, although they've taken it to a whole new level. Read morePublished on Nov. 15 2006 by Lord Noob
