Like a good cheese or a fine wine, Deftones just keep getting better with age. Maybe it's a sense of pride in the fact that they have outlived many trends in rock music or perhaps it's the newfound resolve the band acquired when bassist Chi Cheng was put out of commission in late 2008 following a car wreck that left him comatose. Whatever it is, it's working. While most bands their age are slowing down, Deftones seem to be prolonging their prime.

Like 2010's "Diamond Eyes," the seventh offering from Sacramento's finest, "Koi No Yokan," throws in all the dynamics that made the group so special when they first arrived on the scene nearly two decades ago and delivers a highly refined and tightened sound with little fat to spare. With producer Nick Raskulinecz (Coheed & Cambria, Alice in Chains) once again in their pocket, Deftones deliver yet another home-run. Opening with the adrenaline rush of "Swerve City" and merging ever so slightly into the lush ambience of "Romantic Dreams," it is apparent that the group is once again on top of their game, inspired and intensely focused. Nowhere is this more evident than on deeper album cuts and instant classics such as the beautifully dense "Rosemary" and the appropriately creepy and aggressive "Poltergeist."

While admittedly less aggressive than past offerings, "Koi No Yokan" makes up for what it lacks in heaviness with heaps of intensity and ambience. Frontman Chino Moreno screams a lot less than on any album before, but the trade off is an emotionally charged and moody performance that serves as a highlight of the frontman's career. True to form, Stephen Carpenter's riffs still buzz through the woodwork, drilling the songs into your head almost instantly.

Every song on this album captivates and transcends the soul to a higher plane! Turn down the lights, light up the candles and incense and prepare for an F'N journey!

A Lot more actual singing than screaming, but still heavier than hell and a masterpiece. How they do they get better with time? I dunno! Definitely a contender for ALBUM OF THE YEAR!

!!!!BEST DEFTONES ALBUM TO DATE!!!

I think it's crazy to review an album the first couple times you hear it, so I can honestly say I listened to Koi No Yokan about twenty times before I even thought about reviewing it. Diamond Eyes blew my mind and I knew this would not disappoint.

Swerve City -
The album opens with a bang of riffs then envelopes into the crooning Chino we all love, mixed with an atmospheric swirl of keyboards. Cure ambience echoes in those crying guitars.

Romantic Dreams - Hypnotic guitar broken by the synch of drums / vocals..... Then it gets threatening. "I promise".... Is more convincing than Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode at full emotional throttle? Wow. The guitars rain down a heavy thick sludgy atmosphere where Chino Moreno vocals hover so lightly over. The last of the song is a memorizing 30 second journey...

Leathers - If you haven't heard this, do. After an 80's Fright Night malingering of strange trace guitar in the first 35 seconds, it explodes and tears off your face and pounds, pounds, pounds...ANGRY.. GUNS! RAZORS! LEATHERS! This is one of the heaviest songs on the album... IMO

Poltergeist - The click clack intro sets you up for a trap door of echoing screams followed by melon collie singing over bone crushing riffs. Like an onion, this song goes layers and layers deep, using the atmospheric keyboards in the advantage, while separating guitars, drums and screams.

Entombed - Intertwining guitars going down a very subtle path equal to a gentle rainstorm. Chino lightly sprinkles over the guitars until everything ups a level with a more passion. "Shapes of colors are all I see. Shapes of colors are all I feel." The song almost dies, but quickly is brought back to life to the confessional cries of Chino...

I'll keep it short and sweet. I bought this album on release date. A week later, I've probably listened to it 15 times through. There's just something about it that hooks into you. Deftones have unlocked the soft/loud dynamic and are exploiting it expertly. What's more impressive is that they don't overpower you. They give their songs room to breathe, develop and set a mood. Koi No Yokan is fantastic. Easily one of my favorite albums of 2012.

As a long time Deftones fan I can honestly say "Koi No Yokan" is earning a #1 spot for me in their discography. "Saturday Night Wrist", "Around the Fur" & "Self Titled" are my favorite albums by Deftones but this album has potential to surpass those amazing records. It instantly hooks you in with the track "Swerve City" and then follows up with the awesome song "Romantic Dreams" which has a catchy chorus and a melodic groove. "Goon Squad" also rocks in a way that is playful and energetic bringing light heartedness to a divine sounding record. This album is also probably their most cohesive from start to finish. The transitional pieces between songs are really soothing and help create a nice relaxed mood.

As for the members, Stef on guitar is probably the most prominent force on this record. He dominates each song and drills each riff into your skull. Abe on drums is also a major component. He adds so much flair and gives each track sporadic momentum. Chino does his thing with soaring melodies and lyrics that are vague and abstract. He has changed his vocals in some songs by giving them a more guttural elegance. For example check out "Entombed" and listen to the chorus. His vocals on that song particularly sound more from his gut and makes a strong impact. As for Sergio, he kills it on bass. He plays along Abe but has his moments where he adds a nice texture that sails and diverts to his own rhythm. Lastly but not least, Frank has really grown as a musician giving each track an extra mystique that encourages more listens. He hides in the background but his input is a major ingredient making ethereal ambient noise. All the contributions by the members makes for an inspiring listen that you never want to end and speaking of end, "What Happened to You?
