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

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 only reason why i bought this album was for Hexagram has to be one of my favorites out of all of their songs besides be quiet and drive. This album has blown my freaking mind out with songs such as deathblow, needles and pins, battle axe, and good morning beautiful just pumps through me. People get this album

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.

This 2003 release by the veteran alternative metal band, Deftones, is great on production value and features a lot of heavy, signature style Deftones rifts and emotional, vague/sometimes bizarre vocals that Chino is also known for. Hexagram, the first song on this self-titled album kicks things off with a strong start, with typical highs and lows throughout the rest of the album until the last song (Moana) solidly wraps it up.

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.
