Around the Fur really was ahead of its time, as someone mentioned. And then they followed it up with WP by experimenting a bunch and progressing well beyond their mainstream contemporaries, who at...

Not surprising - the appeal of vinyl in this day and age is largely superficial and nostalgic, so they might as well opt for form over function in the physical record itself, too.

If people truly...

Finally available on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/49kN7knmmX44lOgjBsCK4z

Seriously, everyone who reads this should at least check it out. Incredible record.

It would've sounded surprisingly poppy before the last 2 albums. But yeah, it seems within the same realm as the DE title track, "Swerve City," and a few others.

Seems like the 90s alt-rock bent from KNY may live on here.

Sounds crazy good. Dare I say the W&T sound has been revived there? This has ratcheted up my excitement considerably.

Pitchfork aside, I feel like S/T's reputation has improved quite a lot over the years. Following up White Pony was always going to be a tall order. I remember being somewhat disappointed on my first...

HUM were incredible. Every Deftones fan should at least give You'd Prefer an Astronaut a shot. "Little Dipper" is the track in question I believe, and Chino has specifically referenced them as being...

Specifically in regard to the genre-hopping: I see your point, but I meant more that their style hasn't changed radically from one album to the next. They've (fairly) consistently blended a lot of...

As a Deftones fan, I will say this: they're a little more generic and radio-friendly than most of their hardcore fans let on. I like and own almost all their records, but at least for me, they're...

Agree with Adrenaline bordering on unlistenable, though I'll admit the production is probably as big or bigger a reason than the songs.

Dee directing the library erotica felt like a rare flashback to the fast-paced Sunny of old that made me fall in love with the show -- where 3 or 4 separate absurdities would be uttered so quickly...

My feelings about Deftones album rankings generally aren't strong and they vary with time (aside from Adrenaline being far worse than the rest), but I do think KNY is significantly underrated. Not...

In reference to several things said above: Amnesiac is undeniably less cohesive than Kid A. It's not that Amnesiac is full of second-tier tracks that weren't good enough for Kid A; it's that they...

"Blow Out" is actually legit lol, I'd forgotten about it. Easily the highlight of PH, and really the only track (off the top of my head) that hints at where they were headed on The Bends.

It's...

Even though KoL is somewhat lackluster, "Separator" is a very strong closer and the best cut on the album. Might be my #2 pick after MPS, or at least tied with Videotape.

The problem with "Videotape" is that, from my very first listen through IR, it struck me as a weaker, pared down reincarnation of "Motion Picture Soundtrack" in some respects. Maybe that sounds...

Yep. OKC was more groundbreaking and influential, but if I'm just sitting down to listen to a record straight through, I enjoy IR by a decent margin.

Man, I've always thought "All I Need" and "Faust Arp" are some of the core examples of why In Rainbows is a masterpiece. "House of Cards" I can at least see the argument, as it's probably the weakest...

Precisely. Even a decade ago, I wasn't onboard with OK Computer being completely untouchable or the Dark Side of the Moon of our generation. There are, dare I say, filler tracks and weak moments on...

The Bends is easily better than HTTT, that's for sure.

HTTT and KoL are both no-brainers for "bottom half of their post-PH discography." Though sharing plenty of superficial similarities to their...

The easy answer for me is TOOL. I'm no longer a superfan like I was 10 years ago, but it's impossible to deny that every release from Opiate to 10,000 Days is truly quality, even if the middle...
