Biography

“Pretty,” affirms Deftones singer and guitarist Chino Moreno when discussing their new full-length studio album, Diamond Eyes. “We’re not afraid to be pretty.” It’s an adjective most riff-heavy groups might avoid, but then, Deftones have never been your average hard rock band.
As kids, the Sacramento fivesome cut its teeth on Anthrax and The Smiths, ... Read more in Amazon's Deftones Store

Editorial Reviews

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.com

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

Good Morning Beautiful - This is a dandy of a song, sounds like deftones but i cant compare it to anything old cuz its new.
Graham Smith
From album to album Deftones improve their style of music fully changing the sound of their songs... You know what's the trouble with all new nu-metal bands?
Sanja
Go buy the best CD that has come out this year so far and quit waiting for your old hero's to find their backbone's.....this one is worth the buck.

It's been said many times here, but I'll say it again...this album is not "White Pony 2" or "Son of White Pony". With that being said, can we please stop pouting and move on?

This album is, arguably, the Deftones best album. No band on the planet marries such ambient and lush textures with such brutal power like these guys do, and that would make this their Sistine Chapel. Songs like "Hexagram" and "When Girls Telephone Boys" bludgeon you over the head to get your attention as opposed to tapping you on the shoulder, and "Good Morning Beautiful" and "Bloody Cape" have hooks that are so sugary-sweet your teeth will hurt listening to them. The crowning achievement here though, in my humble opinion, is the blistering "Needles and Pins", whose siren-like guitar work creates a sense of urgency and anxiety. I'm on the edge of my seat every time I hear it.

I think if "Around The Fur" and "White Pony" had a child, this album would be it. And I would spoil the hell out of it.

Wow, deftones have really done it again .This album is awesome from start to finish.I just dont get the people on here bashing this album as if they have any earthly idea what they're talking about, listen to the album with an open mind you lunatic.I do admit this album has to grow on you. It is different than previous deftones albums but then again, all thier albums are.
Although not as good as White Pony, I definitely think it's better than Adrenaline or ATF.Heres aquick review of each song.
1.HEXAGRAM:BRILLIANT, one of the best and one of the most dynamic, awesome songs ever written. 5/5
2.NEEDLES AND PINS:a really good song, not one of my favorites though.3/5
3.MINERVA:great song, it has this certain epic feel to it thats hard to explain.great work. 4.5/5
4.GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL:i dont like it as much as other songs on this cd, but still real good. 3/5
5.DEATHBLOW:great song.slow at the beginning. very different deftones.4/5
6.WHEN GIRLS TELEPHONE BOYS:i didnt like this song when I first bought this cd but like i said before this cd has to grow on you and good lord this song grew on me like wildfire.second best on the album.5/5
7.BATTLE AXE:I love this song from beginning to end. its soft in the beginning with clean guitar and then just explodes into one of the best deftones songs ever.third fav. 5/5
8.LUCKY YOU:very different stuff, but i love it. the techno stuff is just great. cryptic verses and haunting chorus make this a great song.3.5/5
9.BLOODY CAPE:I love this song. One of the heaviest on the album and also my fourth favorite tied with "minerva". I love when Chino screams "GOD HELP ME" over and over again at the end. 4.5/5
10.AOAUE:I have to admit I love this song. VERY different for Deftones.

One of my favorite bands for the main reason that they are unique in themselves and will not conform, The Deftones have once again pushed the boundaries of modern rock/metal and delivered another brilliant escape from the norm. On their fourth (self titled) disc Chino and the boys dig deep and hand us 11 tracks all different, all spectacular. I will admit that when I first heard the single 'Minerva' I was less than impressed, but even that track has grown on me since purchasing the album.

'Hexagram' opens the album with ferocity and brutality that lets you know to expect a true to form Deftones album. 'Needles and Pins' though is what really kicks this album off. Mix Chino's haunting vocals and brilliant lyrics with Carpenter's crushing guitars and Delgado's soundscapes and added textures and you have a perfect song. The follow this brilliant direction in 'Bloody Cape' as well, delivering brutal force and seductive elegance all at the same time. And I want to make mention that 'When Girls Telephone Boys' is one of the most brutal tracks Deftones have ever put out...Chino is god, I swear.

They turn a softer leaf with tracks like 'Good Morning Beautiful' and the closer 'Moana', songs that have more of a 'White Pony' feel to them. 'Deathblow' and even 'Battle Ax' carry this same feel, not much screaming, more like yelling over some heavy yet not brutal riffs. The later two though hold my attention better than the former.

It's the haunting beauty of 'Lucky You' though that stands out as the most inspired track here. It appeared on the Matrix Reloaded soundtrack, and it fit...but here, in the element that is Deftones it holds much more presence beings the only of it's kind. The chorus is just so calming and soothing...it's one of my favorite songs ever penned.

I'll try to do my best on this review - it's very important to do this after DEFTONES - their selfnamed album.
It's like a line finalizing their 8 years of playing on the world scene... playing alone, their individual style with a very few followers who failed to reach that level of quality...
It's not as Art-Chaotic as "Adrenaline", not as Agressivly-Beautiful as "Around The Fur", not as Experimentally-Awsome as "White Pony" - it's all the Experience and Heaviness of the band put in one small CDbox. From album to album Deftones improve their style of music fully changing the sound of their songs... You know what's the trouble with all new nu-metal bands? Their second albums are the same and not as fresh as their debuts - no fantasy, no hard-working, no experience - only ambitions... That's why i respect Deftones - no filler songs, all the albums are complete pieces of Art, with their own style and meaning.
Back to the album, i'd say, the first time i heard it i was more than just dissapointed as always happenes when you hear their new stuff - no more old Deftones - everything moves forward, nothing stays... Album is heavier than ever - all the hardest songs are here, my boys - there's my overview on them:
HEXAGRAM (10/10) - A very very solid song - IMHO one of the best Deftones have ever created. Awsome guitars, very strong vocal (Chino screams like he had lost something, his voice is really stressful)
NEEDLES AND PINS (8/10) - Very heavy, solid and mostly similar to their old songs... Nothing special, just Deftones.
MINERVA (7,5/10) - Single, nothing to say, IMHO far not their best work...
GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL (10/10) - Do you remember KOREA with its' boring beginning and then totally knocking rush from 1:47 until end?
