Product Description

White Pony is the Deftones' third consecutive gold-selling album - and now there's a new, improved edition with an added track, the second single, "Back To School (Mini Maggit)," and even new cover art. One of modern rock's most respected groups, the Deftones go beyond the new heavy rock to bring together the accessible and dissonant, bombastic and vulnerable, aggressive and thoughtful, with a new White Pony Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)

Amazon.com

The aggro-rock movement spearheaded by the 'Tones, Korn, Sevendust, System of a Down, and Rage Against the Machine, among others, has been taking on new influences with each new release by the major players. White Pony may be the biggest leap yet for the genre, as Chino Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham, Stephen Carpenter, and DJ Frank Delgado maintain the fierceness that's earned them a rabid following. This time out, however, their patented brand of hip-hop metal is adorned with ambient and alt-rock touches. --Steven Stolder

Depth, layers, twisting and turning textures...this is what "White Pony" is all about! The boys have done it again, continuing with the growth evident from "Adrenaline" to "Around The Fur". A stand-out album in 2000 and in the whole genre.
The seething, boiling rage is still there - pure and untouched. It's just channeled and expressed with more maturity, nuance and sophistication now. The Deftones make more use of texture, contrast and atmosphere/space in the music on this album to get their point across. It makes the music more compelling and even more dark and haunting...listen to the brilliance of "Digital Bath" and "Rx Queen" to hear what I mean -- brooding rage played with grace and finesse.
There's more variety here...different song structures, experimentation with different beats, layers and instrumentation, more contrasting sound choices...but make no mistake, THIS IS THE DEFTONES. They have not made the classic mistake of "growing" so much that they sound disjointed, incoherent...or like another band altogether. It still bears the classic Deftone scars....relentless, oppressive, biting guitars, pounding bass, precise, grooving drums...and Chino's sensual, keening, expressive vocals.
Some of the best, most aggressive riffs the Deftones have come up with are on this album...check out the fury of "Elite" and the syncopated, chunky metal-laden "Street Carp." More textures and sounds coaxed out of the guitars on this release.
Also, Chino has grown by leaps and bounds. His sultry, whispery howl is still present...but he explores the higher registers more often (singing, not screaming) and there is more modulation and shading to his voice, more of a sense of melody and nuance.

Released in 2000, White Pony is still a landmark in popular hard rock, often showing up in various places as one of the best albums of its respective year and even all time. Still, nearly five years later it is considered to be Deftones' masterpiece and the height of their artistic and commercial success. As I type this, Deftones are preparing to release their fifth album, so the future of White Pony's title is unsure, and I think I speak for all Deftones fans when I say that I hope it gets knocked down by the new release.

It's hard to swallow White Pony at points, and it definitely takes time to grow on you, but subsequent listens of the record in its entirety open up its true brilliance. The way White Pony is constructed is confusing, but after breaking it down, it becomes a little more manageable. Basically, it's not a full-blown concept album, but it does have a very conceptual and almost progressive feel throughout, as indicated by the many shifts in styling and song structure, yet retaining a consistent feel. The way I see it, the album can best be described as one piece, with twelve different movements that send it in different directions while managing to keep it all tied together to common thematic elements and various motifs. In its raw instrumentation, this album may not be as complex as a Dream Theater album, but the way it is put together can be just as brilliant if you listen to it in the right way and with an open mind.

The journey of White Pony is like traveling through a nightmare. It opens the listener up to explore the psyche of a sleeping human mind, the time when little makes sense in the human brain and its functions.

The Deftones formed in the late 1980's, but didn't release their first real C.D. until 1995. This album, "Adrenaline," was very heavy, raw, and energetic. In 1997, they released "Around the Fur," another heavy album, and one that helped the Deftones step out of Korn's shadow. "Adrenaline" and "Around the Fur" were two of the first ever nu-metal albums, and many modern nu-metal bands have cited the Deftones as an influence, but these albums' sales did not compare with the good reviews they got from critics.

This C.D., the group's only to go platinum, is when the Deftones really came into their own, because with their third album, the Deftones seemed like they wanted to slay the horse they rode in on. It's about 10 times less heavy than "Adrenaline" and "ATF," and the hip-hop influence is all but eliminated. The Deftones despise the "nu-metal" label, and have tried hard to get rid of it. I believe "The White Pony" isn't rap/nu-metal; I'd call it more of an alternative or progressive or melodic metal album. Some of the Deftones' past seeps through into some of these songs (as you'll see below), but, for the most part, this sounds like a completely new band. The new sound alienated some old-school headbangers, but, since this is the Deftones' most accessible and easy-to-listen to album, it also attracted many new fans. I'm not sure if Chino and Co. would have made this album if their two predecessors, the heavier albums, were more popular, but "The White Pony" is very smooth, melodic, atmospheric, and often pretty.

When writing this album, there was some commotion amongst the band members (particularly guitarist Steph Carpenter and singer Chino Moreno), but the result was an album that's probably the second best C.D.
