kinda figured anyone who liked that track got off the train when Deftones shed all of their nu-metal associations, tbh

no, a hard no to all of that

but anyway, new album's fucking great - i didn't know what to expect, if it was going to be a hard return to the early era of the band when they were initially working with Terry Date, but it might be the most dreamy & atmospheric they've gotten yet (without ever being boring)

track 2 actually had me going



on that fuckin' groove they have going on those verses

on top of that i think Frank & Sergio get to shine more on this album than any other so far, Sergio even got some stand-out melodic basslines happening on some of these tracks

but anyway, that's all after just one listen, i can "dig in" more to the thing after a few more!

i listened to this and to the new sufjan stevens this morning and felt like in their respective careers, sufjan did better with this one than deftones. still enjoyed the 'tones, and will listen more so i get a better feel for it

the quarantine has been good for new music overall, furry corgan aside. killers, bright eyes, deftones, sufjan all with new stuff in the last few weeks, who else is putting out new music?

i can't believe anyone who was a fan of the 'tones wouldn't love this almost immediately - i came into this not sure if we were just going to get a better-produced Gore or what but quite frankly it's already making a pretty hard bargain for my top 3 from the group

& i know it's highly subjective with them especially since some people don't even like fuckin' Koi No Yokan but damn, how could you say no to this particular set of dreams, screams & grooves?

stephen carpenter is really bringing it this album. do we think that means he was smoking more weed or less weed than he typically does?

Veggie I think you may just be having a bad week

that first line of yours in particular is quite wrong - This Link is Dead is quite blatantly the WGTB of the album & it has quite a bit in the way of beautiful epics, this may be their dreamiest record yet while still maintaining that "red-hot" attack when neccesary. i dunno i was holding off on hyping this up too much after Gore but it really is fucking good

Kind of sounds like they hashed it out in week - the verses in particular sound lazy to me.

Went on a long walk and listened to the magical triumvirate of Self Titled, Saturday Night Wrist (slightly ruined by putting that plonker from System of a Down on a perfectly good song) and Koi No Yokan consecutively and this is a loooooong way off. I mean, that faaaaaahkin' guitar tone in Poltergeist! The distortion on this one is like late 70s British High gain. I might even prefer Gore.

I mean it's nowhere near as far removed from peak Deftones as the last five SP releases have been from peak SP, I'd still say its a good album; unlike the SP counterparts.
Hey you’re a fucking idiot
The production alone makes this better than Gore
This is prob the best Deftones album

Not even close to their best album. But it is good. For me Gore had more memorable songs. The new album is competent and well executed I just don’t think there are that many hooks.

Ohms is good. High mid tier Deftones. Not their best album, but, honestly, I prefer Gore over Ohms. I*connected with Gore right away. I will even say that Gore has more memorable songs. The production on Gore does not bother me and adds to the vibe they were going for. It felt like Deftones doing something new. Ohms feels more like Deftones reacting to those who whined about Gore's direction and now they are forced to make a "Deftones sounding" album. Deftones trying to be Deftones. And, sure, Deftones can still pull it off. But something still feels a little been there, done that to me with Ohms. In my book, Gore had more interesting and unique songs and did things I didn't expect. Ohms is not bad. I quite enjoy it. But Gore is better and I connected with it more instantly. I wish this album was more dirty sounding like Self Titled or even Gore. It's a little too polished.

Well, good to know the music taste of Netphoria is that garbage considering the RYM, Sputnik and Metacritic scores agree with me

"Metacritic agrees with me" LOL
While you're at it, does Pitchfork agree with you as well?
You must feel so validated. We're glad your tastes go with the majority of people.
You must love Katy Perry too because she gets favorable scores as well.
