Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While the Deftones were racking up millions of album sales around the world and collecting Grammy Awards on the back of their apocalyptic metal sound, front man Chino Moreno was endlessly tinkering away on this side project that seems to owe more to the ethereal-electronic moods of Radiohead. Team Sleep may not add any extra decimals to his bank account but it reveals that the singer is not just another testosterone-fueled crybaby. Working with guest singers Mary Timony (ex-Helium) and Rob Crow (Pinback), plus DJ Crook and Hella drummer Zach Hill, Moreno has made a beautifully crafted album that doesn't employ a single note of distortion or angst without complete intellectual engagement. Really, it's hard to imagine the dude from Papa Roach coming up with a sideways tribute to ivy-league schools ("Princeton Review") or a song inspired by an Edgar Allen Poe poem ("Tomb of Liegia,") --Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

Team Sleep is an artful, experimental, ambient band that is led by frontman Chino Moreno, singer of Deftones, the highly influential, two-time Grammy winning group that has sold over 4 million albums worldwide. With contributions from musician friends and production by Terry Date (Deftones) and Ross Robinson (Cure, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit), Team Sleep's ethereal debut album builds a new fan base for a fresh new band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Surprising, If You've Been Listening. June 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, it took half a decade to come out, but finally, we can all enjoy the debut effort from Team Sleep, the side project of Deftones frontman Chino Moreno. It seems like forever that we've been all waiting for this softer-side of the Deftones to be released. Aside from a little bit of touring and a spot on 2003's "Matrix: Reloaded" soundtrack, it's been a dire situation for those interested. To be honest, with all of the bumps in the road and conflicting news, I am very shocked that I am able to hold this album in my hands and listen to it. But oh, how it has been worth the wait.

If you've been following this project since it's inception -- roughly around the time the Deftones released "White Pony -- you know what to expect here. Team Sleep is, essentially, the side of the Deftones that Chino Moreno can't really express without alienating some of his fanbase. For those of you who enjoy Deftones tracks such as "Teenager," "RX Queen" or "Lucky You": Welcome. This album is for you. Team Sleep is less riff rock, and more emphasis on ambience and electronics. Hell, some of this doesn't even sound like it came from Chino at that. Aside from songs like "Ever (Foreign Flag)" and "Blvd Nights," which will appeal to all or most, this is a very unqiue and challenging experience. Comparisons to The Cure and the Smashing Pumpkins have been made, and even noted as influences, but Team Sleep manage to find their own niche. You never quite know where this album is heading, and that's a good thing.

The most important thing, aside from the fact that this album, even upon first listen, is better than the last Deftones album, is that it was worth the wait. It's definitely different, and it takes a while to sit, but those who have an open mind will be rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars I shouldn't like this album but I do June 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Typically this is the kind of album I would hate. I am an ex-metalhead turned Blue-rock, Jazz, prog-rock fan who plays guitar and thinks that just about anything electronic equals zero authenticity. OK, I dont mind a bit of electronic music here and there but I definitely don't take to it like a duck takes to water.

There was really only two reasons why I bought this album, 1. Because of Chino Moreno (like I said I used to be a total Westy Headbanger type) and 2. The album cover seemed kind of tragically cool in a sad, going nowhere kind of way (I have really got to stop making album purchases based on their cover art, totally stupid thing for an otherwise intelligent person to do).

And so I took it home and gave it a spin and sure enough I encountered music that seemed to me to be a dreary, electronic insomniac cure. But like all subtle, nuanced music that creeps up on you like a creeping death chilli dish (You know the kind of meal, at first you say, "Hey, this aint that hot" and then by the end of it your crying and sweating and screaming for yoghurt, "Somebody, anybody, get me some bloody yoghurt, I'M DYING HERE"), it started to grow on me.

Sometimes it takes a confluence of emotion, environment and music to really make a special moment and this happened for me the other day. I was passing over the Sydney Harbour Bridge on an overcast day looking out at the mist over the water, feeling as dreary inside myself as it was outside and I had Team Sleep playing on my discman and it all just came together. The perfect melancholic moment.

So I guess what I am trying to say is that if you are feeling a little sad, if you are feeling a little lonely and it is a cloudy, gloomy day, whack on some Team Sleep and surrender to the groove of melancholy until your ready to slip into something a little more cheerful. You may as well make the most out of your moodiness and make an experience of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. May 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Moreno has always experimented with some strange elements in his music, and that has made him different, at least, in my eyes. Being in the mainstream of music with the Deftones, some of those elements haven't been readily accepted by fans of the nu-metal genre. Team Sleep allows him to experiment more freely with personal styles. I think that a lot of his hardcore fans have definitely understood his creativity and uniqueness that has shown through with everyone album he's made. The earlier Deftones albums are unappealing to me, but tons of nu-metal and hardcore fans love them. I'd like to count them as trial and error records and label them under that category. White Pony was really the first record that made them, 'exploring the space', so to speak. You could definitely tell that their influences from great artists like The Smiths and My Bloody Valentine were shining. But the Deftones still maintained their own unique "spacey-heavy" feel. With Team Sleep, Chino sounds like he borrowed a lot from The Smashing Pumpkins, as they have covered "The Aeroplane Flies High" at the few live shows they've done. It also sounds like he's ready to make another Deftones record, with the adding of a DJ (Crook). I still hear The Smiths, even some Radiohead, Garbage, Pinback (of course), and Failure influences on the record.

This isn't the record of the decade, but fans have been patiently waiting for it for quite some time. So, I guess they are expecting perfect execution. Well, they shouldn't be disappointed with the track listing here. "King Diamond" and "Tomb of Liegia" sound like revised versions and remixes of some older Deftones songs where Chino used female vocalists to create conversation-like pieces. I think he likes using them to link songs on the record, showing an alternate side.
