This album is perfect. It sounds polished but has brought back the edginess of Deftones early albums. This album is perfect for hardcore deftones fans or people who want to get into Deftones music.

  EXCEPTIONAL

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!

This is the best album of there's to date, it is understated but yet the most powerful song writing I've heard in years. This album will not disappoint.
The day I got it was on my stereo back to back 6 times. Enjoy.

This is probably my favourite deftones album so far, i definitely wasn't expecting this! At first it went over my head but after a good few listens it really sunk in!

  Fantastic

If you are a deftones fan pick this up as it is their best in years. If you have never heard of/got into deftones before I highly recommend this as your first purchase, and any general fan of rock should pick this up. Despite the fact chi is out of bass duties due to his unfortunate car accident it seems to have given the band a huge burst of energy. Another mix of heavy rock combined with hypnotic melodies proves again how much of a unique band deftones are, don't miss out on the best rock album of 2010 so far

  Their greatest album yet?

From what ive heard from this album already (which is most of them), I think Deftones may have quite possibly outdone themselves. This is quite a tall claim, which is why I say this as an avid listener of their previous albums. Some other fans may disagree with me because of the huge variety on the album but I believe it is this mixture of smashing guitar riffs and Chinos variety of screams and hypnotising choruses that shows how much the band has evolved from their previous albums. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan or even if they are thinking of becoming one as they will be pleasantly surprised.

Best album since White Pony, with sounds of that and Around The Fur thrown in. Kicks off with 'Diamond Eyes', which is a great opener, and carries on to 'Rocket Skates', which crowds the world over will love to be a part of. 6/5
