I can't believe fools actually lumped these guys in with sh** bands like Korn.

Deftones have been kicking a$$ for years.

Surprised, songs is actually pretty legit. Haven't been a fan since White Pony but maybe they'll put out a solid record. I've heard them talking this album up so fingers crossed.

Had goosebumps several times throughout that...I don't know what it is but these guys continue to resonate with me...Everyone in here saying sounds like "Adrenaline" or "White Pony" but this...screams of "Around the Fur".

-Much- better than most of self title, b-sides and Sat Night Wrist...

Sounds Killer! I hope the rest of the album is just as good. Around the fur and White pony are my favs but I don't see why everybody hates Saturday Night Wrist, it's still a pretty decent album with a interesting vibe.

I don't hate Saturday Night Wrist at all--to me it was the album where they got back on track after derailing on self-title (and the bad b-side collection, that failed to include ANY of their decent b-sides)

On a side note Chino got back some of the spring in his step--dude must've woke up one day and said "f*** this fat!" compare this to "Hole in the Earth"...Almost looks like his mid-90's self.

Wrists, S-Titled and B-sides were all experimental albums. None of them were particularly bad but they diverged from a coherent structure.

But sometimes you gotta tread through murky water to get to the fresh fish. So far, Diamond Eyes is looking and sounding pretty damn fresh.

Sounds like a mixture of
"White Pony" and "Around the Fur" to me. Very good stuff. Hang in there Chi....
