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.

Deftones' self titled release "Deftones" can probably be seen as a stepping stone by a band that is continually on an upward accent to what will surely become rock musical greatness.
As a fan of the band since "Around the Fur" was released it is plainly obvious that each album they release is better than the one prior to it, which means "Deftones" is probably thier best album yet, but thier next release will probably be even better.
They seem to be very much like 'Faith no more' in that aspect.
Not only have the band improved thier songwriting on this album, they have also developed a keen set of ears for audio production too.The album sounds amazing and has a higher quality than thier previous albums, the songs are more simple and heavy, yet more complicated musically.
Chino Moreno's vocals are more high pitched and vocally intense than on any previous albums, and Abe Cunningham's drums are somewhat less busy, yet harder hitting than before.
As for the guitars, i think Stef Carpenters sludgy,crunchy 7 string assault is more like Messugah and Fear Factory,than "White Pony" and Chi Chengs bass is just massive and and explosive.DJ Frank also gets his rightfull place performing and entire track of his own musical taste.
Clearly a very Heavy ,bitter ,poisonous and intense album, some fans might not like it, but a lot more will love 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.

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.

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.
