Great review! Definitely got me excited. it's good to hear someone say what I'm hoping for. I just checked out "Graphic Nature" and "Entombed" and I'm pretty stoked.

Also, for anyone really bothered about the production, there's a hi-res, less compressed release here. Warner Bros. has been doing this bit with their recent releases. Left (top) channel is the CD version, Right channel is the version I linked to. Check out the difference.

" I didn’t realize music could be so intricate, emotional, and devastating all in one swoop. White Pony consumed me and turned my interest in music from casual encounters to a passionate love affair."

The exact same thing happened for me, but it was Adrenaline that did it for me when it came out (I was 14 at the time).

Drew, I think you use "sinister guitar riff" in most of your reviews

HDtracks has been fucking amazing lately with the WB releases. Thanks for the heads-up.

So, is this a good place to start listening to Deftones?
Although that's now how I did it, I'd start with Diamond Eyes. I think it's the most rounded of their albums. Then hit White Pony and Koi.

90% is too low regardless of the production.

Don't think I'd give it a 9, but solid 8s all around.

No. Start with Adrenaline, then Around the Fur, White Pony, s/t, .... It's important to watch how they have progressed

Absolutely. Experiencing how this band has grown and evolved is nothing short of amazing. Not just a rare feat for a heavy band but for any band today.

This is an awesome review, I'm not sure I enjoy it quite as much as I do Diamond Eyes yet, but it's a fantastic album. Their softer songs always come off accomplished to me, but "Leathers" shows the metal edge they've never lost better than ever. Definitely in my top ten for the year.

For some reason, this one is taking some time to sink in, unlike the last one.

I'm not really sure why all the complaints about the production. I've heard albums that sound way more overly-compressed than this. I think the mix is pretty even, no instruments/vocals really interfering with anything else.
