5 EXCEPTIONALConsigliere | 28/09/2010 | See all Consigliere's reviews (21)Here are the facts :Beauty School, Risk and Royal are better than most of the songs on White Pony.Most. Not better than Change in The House Of Flies, Passenger or Knife Party.Is it a better album? Overall? I'm still undecided.What I DO know is this is the sound of a band so in control of their destiny it's almost frightening!Forget Adrenaline and even Around The Fur, this album is so complete in sound and direction it finally proves that the Deftones no longer have any peers!They've balanced brutality, structure, melody, passion, precision and beauty in one heartfelt positive collection of songs. I always knew they were good, but this left me breathless!Buy. Please buy!
