White Pony is the Deftones' third consecutive gold-selling album - and now there's a new, improved edition with an added track, the second single, "Back To School (Mini Maggit)," and even new cover art. One of modern rock's most respected groups, the Deftones go beyond the new heavy rock to bring together the accessible and dissonant, bombastic and vulnerable, aggressive and thoughtful, with a new White Pony Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)
The aggro-rock movement spearheaded by the 'Tones, Korn, Sevendust, System of a Down, and Rage Against the Machine, among others, has been taking on new influences with each new release by the major players. White Pony may be the biggest leap yet for the genre, as Chino Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham, Stephen Carpenter, and DJ Frank Delgado maintain the fierceness that's earned them a rabid following. This time out, however, their patented brand of hip-hop metal is adorned with ambient and alt-rock touches. --Steven Stolder

This is a grossly underrated album. The craft and bleeding heart aggro-pathos of Chino and crew cut like a hot knife in butter(sad cliche, I know) and leave the listener with the strong sensation of having survived a night in the heart of Vietnam or something. The emotional assualt is the real killer: Chino's passionate delivery is like a strangling cry in the night, one that wakes the dead and your unfortunate neighbors(have done it in real life, though dead did not actually awaken from their abode, but cranky neighbors did) when played at full decibel in perfect stereophonics. Some of the more mellow tracks, such as "Teenagr", "Digital Bath" and the closing number, afford the emotional connection to the listener without fabrication and stagnation. These moments, along with first rate production (thanks to Terry Date) bring to life a strong and unique presence under the californian musical sun. I havn't listened to the first 2 records by Deftones, and to be honest, I probably wouldn't want to. The fact that this CD alienated a lot of people in it's bold full speed ahead strident swagger, is proof to me that they pulled a Radiohead(albeit, one more convincingly then the aforementioned) and cut their lossess with die hard fans to find a new niche in their craft, and in the process, came out with a weighty, heady, and slightly disturbing alt-art-rock masterpeice. Though sorely underestimated, "White Pony" throughs around more then it's weight, and for that, I applaud the Deftones for bringing originality, passion and art back to nu-metal, or whatever you kids call it. Through and through, a great record with virtually no weak moments. Highly reccomended.
As far as the songs go, to me the cd hits an apex at "Change". It has always been to me kinda straight-forward what he was saying lyrically and the music is just dark enough to set the mood without becoming cheesy. Really though, the entire cd blasts with creativity and a feel that they play a style of music that always feels 'new'. No songs are reptitive but all are amazing, Feiticeira is particuarly great because of the fact that there is no chorus to the song (something that will never happen in most music, in fear that the song might be otherwise forgetble if there is no hook to stay in your head for days.)
Overall this is the 2nd best, but only by a slim margin to ATF. If you don't own this yet I would DEFINATELY get the re-released version because Back to School is VERY good (with a cool video too). Or if possible to do what I did and get the red version as well(extra track being The Boy's Republic).
Lyrically this is last years best album, the cryptic messages of Elite to the gothis imagery of Knife Prty. There isn't a best song on the album because all of the songs are breathtaking. I just wish they would've but Boy's Republic on the reissue with Back To School.
recommended for new deftones fans, then work your way back.
