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.

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.

Overall great review, but I think Diamond Eyes is definitely closer to Around The Fur and Koi No Yokan is definitely closer to White Pony as far any similarity. Needless to say this is my Album of the year and It would be pretty damn awesome if the Deftones won another grammy because of this record...just sayin'

You folks who don't get the production criticism either have really low standards or bad hearing. No offense.

Gonna give the hi-res version a whirl.
