Read my post. Deftones (White Pony days). Also Wikipedia classifies them as nu-metal:

Yep. Also, your username makes me so nostalgic and happy.

So much potential.

So much WASTED potential.

What a snoozfest. Expected much more than this from Issues.

bobsheiskawy 11/07/12 05:42 PM

this isn't anything mindblowing, but it's entertaining. i wasn't expecting anything more than that description, so i'm okay with it.

and unless hance sings significantly more on the rest of the woe, is me album than he does in the songs already released, i think i will enjoy this more.

Funny you pick an altered remix that wasnt even on the original white pony release, they added it later. If anyone categorized white pony by one song they would be sadly misrepresenting that album, not a single song on there sounds quite like this edit of pink maggit...even picking one or two songs to categorize deftones is a travesty

Taken from wikipedia, chino's thoughts on back to school:

The band also regrets specifically "Back to School's" presence on the re-release of the album, as Moreno stated in an interview with German rock magazine Visions: "'Back to School' was a mistake.

Wikipedia isn't all facts. Didn't know Incubus was nu metal...hahah

My God. That intro is so. . . awful. Why did anyone involved think that was a good idea?

johnnyferris 11/07/12 05:56 PM

The intro was terrible. Everything other than King of Amarillo was super boring. What gives? I actually expected more from this.

blackmold 11/07/12 06:05 PM

I really think they should've just released "king of amarillo" as a single then stayed in the studio a while longer working on their music before throwing together an album real quick to make the kids happy. This project should've been a lot better.

what.the.fuck. seriously. i typically dont like hating on bands, especially on ap. but god damn. i couldnt even get through 1 minute of either of the first two tracks. i know some people like melody over lyrics, but they fall short on both.

Incubus has a little nu-metal vibe to a few songs. Wouldn't call them a nu-metal band though lol.

I only listened to that song on the first page. Is the rest of the album better or worse than that song?

Also, this song is a jam.



What song is this? It doesn't show up on mobile.

Edit: Nevermind. I see it. And I actually hated that song. Thought it was really boring. Maybe it could've been better if the background instrumentation wasn't all chugging.
