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.

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.

The album crashes open with the screaming Hexagram. Its been three years between White Pony and Deftones and with the eleven tracks its been worth the wait. The first single the god blessing Minerva does not reflect the rest of the album as well as other tracks do. One of the stand out tracks and a definite single is Deathblow. The song like the album has its hard and soft parts to it.The heaviest song on the album When Girls Telephone Boys is a true testement that Chino Moreno the vocalist is in no way getting soft.
I feel this album is a thorough metal album, and instead of continuing to make albums with no real transition in there music like Linkin Park or Godsmack the Deftones truly have yet changed there sound once more. After hearing this album more than once you will definitely be a fan. I would recomend this album to any true metal fan.

This is my favorite Deftones album, even including their latest release Saturday Night Wrist. With white pony, it was clear that Chino took the reins & steered the band in a new direction with great results. What we have here is Stephen taking the reins back & putting his stamp on the new direction, adding more blistering guitars & earth shattering riffs to the layered sounds of the rest of the band. This is the heaviest Deftones album (Around the Fur is a close 2nd) & I think it turned off some fans. There is not one bad song on this & there is a very eclectic mix of songs here, more so than White Pony. If you are a Deftones fan, this album is essential.

I just picked up the cd today. First off there's 11 songs on it, Minerva and Bloody Cape seemed to have been left off the list on Amazon. I had only heard Lucky You from the Matrix Reloaded soundtrack and was quite suprised by the rest of the album. Unlike the ethereal White Pony, Deftones is much darker. Chino gives a very emotional and brooding preformance, personal favourite are "Needles and Pins", "Deathblow" and "Minerva". "When Girls Telephone Boys" is alot like old Deftones, but the rest of the cd is a progression from White Pony. The guitar is very catchy and Carpenter has come up with some of his best work yet; Delgados is incredible especially on "Lucky You"; Cheng provides a great atmosphere; and Cunningham creates great beats and drumming very enjoyable to pick apart. The track that really suprised me was "Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event" though, I'm not sure what to say about it. It's different from other Deftones songs and sounds very New Age, yet distinctly Deftones. This cd is better than White Pony and like all their albums is a progression from the last one.
