Do you remember on that facebook group several people chiming in and saying gimme TMD over any pumpkins from the last 10 years?

There's 10% wet, two second reverb on my vocals, you utter cunt.

What are these fonts youre talking about, you abject little shit?

P. S,
I love you.

Please use more expletives it really gets your point across. Those people must be fucking deaf. Lolllllll

Itís funny how totally risible -you- are. I would never listen to your band based on artwork alone. Just dreadful. I know this will really get under your skin too. Youíre really gonna stew about this for a while. My work is done here.

I wouldn't call White Pony nu-metal. Their earlier stuff, yes. The label forced them to make Back To School, a track that forces a nu metal sound that was missing from WP, after the album was released. The real White Pony album is the un-label molested version sans Back To School. It was a slimy label move to make the album seem nu metal when it really wasn't. There is no rap rock on the real White Pony. White Pony is where Deftones perfected their own sound and no other band has matched it. I'm sure the hardcore rap rock nu metal kids who first heard Back To School would've been disappointed thinking that's the style of the album. It's kinda the Ava Adore of White Pony, but tacked on after the fact.

Adore is just the continuation of the lighter, mellower side of Mellon Collie. Each album felt like a progression from the last up until Machina. Machina tries to take two steps back. Kinda like Ohms.

There's synth work, yes, but the presence of a synth alone isn't indicative of a cohesive direction. You don't get to something like Home without going through stuff like Tear or Pug first. It's about the way that they put them together, and yes, you can trace the journey to Adore from the elements introduced in MCIS. That's obvious.

Put it this way: Could you picture 'Home' or 'The Sacred + Profane' on MCIS? Answer is nope.

What if I answer yes? What then?

Anyway, I'm really looking at this more in terms of like production. Yeah, MCIS is such a sprawling album that any of their songs could have been on it in theory, but my point was about how things sound and feel as opposed to the song structure - even if they were, they would have sounded different.

Anyway I finally fucking got my LP of ohms in the mail yesterday with the zine whooo

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 07:06 PM

Hot take:

Ohms sucked.

Come. At. Me.

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 07:07 PM

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 07:07 PM

No, I mean, Took pls come at me.

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 07:07 PM

Come at me.

Ok sucked is a bit of hyperb0lly but this thing did not rock me like I needed it to.

I would compare it to Fargo S4. It's fine on its own merits, but I waited so long for this?

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 08:20 PM

Season 4

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 08:20 PM

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 08:20 PM

FlamingGlobes 11-03-2020 08:20 PM

Joey Goldberg 11-04-2020 02:20 AM

your first post alone in this series of bullshit makes me not miss you one BIT, llama man


Joey Goldberg 11-04-2020 02:26 AM

go think about your transgressions & generally feel bad about yourself in that corner over there for at least a week, then we can discuss the meaning of life, the current US presidential election and, most importantly, the artist VALOUR of newest Deftones album OHMS youabsolutesonofabitch

FlamingGlobes 11-04-2020 08:23 AM

Sorry bro, I have standers. It's not that it's bad music. It's well produced, but it sounds like the band recorded whatever came to mind during a weeklong jam sesh and had Terry Date step up to the plate and work his magic. The songs, the hooks just aren't there. And Chino honestly sounds annoying in some of the tunes. Don't know what happened, but this ain't muh Deftones!

FlamingGlobes 11-04-2020 08:23 AM

I'm going to blame Fargo S4 on coronavirus run amok.

FlamingGlobes 11-04-2020 08:24 AM

And also maybe that Jack Black looking motherfuck.

wHATcOLOR 11-08-2020 06:11 PM

ninsp 11-08-2020 10:16 PM

I can’t stop listening to Ohms
This is probably my favorite Deftones album

FlamingGlobes 11-09-2020 02:31 PM


FlamingGlobes 11-09-2020 02:31 PM

Not me, not with White Pony, Diamond Eyes and Around the Fur still on the shelf. Glad everyone else is enjoying it though.
