“Pretty,” affirms Deftones singer and guitarist Chino Moreno when discussing their new full-length studio album, Diamond Eyes. “We’re not afraid to be pretty.” It’s an adjective most riff-heavy groups might avoid, but then, Deftones have never been your average hard rock band.

the deftones second outing gave us a darker and more original look at nu metal. both albums are equal, but those who prefer a diverse, haunting collage of heavy tracks (like me) will prefer this short and sweet gem. The best tracks are the two singles and dai the flu. my own summer is the best song to be played at full volume, an incredibly catchy and amazing guitar riff, a beatifully screamed chorus and wonderfully original lyrics. be quiet and drive is (in my opinion) the best deftones song because the vocals bring out the diversity of chino's voice, and the song has a repeated riff that drives the song forward backed up by thumping bass from chi cheng. dai the flu has a furiously catchy and dark tune which runs through the versus, perfecty complimenting such a song. max from sepultura and soulfly joins the party in the song 'headup' adding a more traditional metal feel to the album, followed by a great closure from mx, and the hidden track. However, every track is good, most are excellant and the album is definately worth getting before all others if you're into more original metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of all the new metal bands 16 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With their second album, the Deftones have exceeded all expectations to deliver one of the best metal albums of the 1990s. After bursting on the scene with the brutal if slightly rushed 'Adrenaline', 'Around The Fur' successfully combine haunting and melodic vocals with aggressive and raging guitars. From the outstanding opening track 'My Own Summer' to album closer 'MX' with its edgy and subdued feeling, the album does not have a single filler track. Highlights are many especially 'Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away)' which could be the best song the Deftones have recorded so far. The title track itself would put most bands in the "post-Korn" metal scene to shame and 'Lotion' is destined to become a live favourite for years to come. What sets the band apart from the numerous US metal bands at the moment is the songs are not one-dimensional work-outs, going from emotional vocals to cutting edge guitars without breaking sweat. 'Around The Fur' is brutal, raw and aggressive, but at the same time opens up its soul and displays intelligence.

5.0 out of 5 stars a life changing album... 3 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
..ATF is an album i was introduced to during my mid-teens, and still it is as magnificent to listen to now as it was then. Possibly the best 'all round' deftones record. there is a change of tone from adrenaline, the guitars are less 'tinny' and sound far heavier, yet chino's voice reaches new, wonderous heights, which were merely suggested at with their previous record 'adrenaline'. The album contains some of the most emotional, desperate musical moments ive ever heard - deftones are possibly the only band out at the moment to successfully bridge the gap between metal and post rock - this is far more prominent in their later work ('white pony' and 'deftones') but this album is very suggestive of the dramatic, climactic angle of many post-rock bands. To me every track is fantastic but highlights include - Around the fur, Mascara, Be Quiet and Drive and MX. - a record that has, and will continue to alter the future of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finely Crafted Genius 28 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I must admit I think nu-metal is pretty lame. But then Around The Fur, is far from your everyday nu-metal album. This has to be one of the most finely crafted heavy albums I've ever heard. To categorise, or even compare the album is difficult. Vocally the songs are an uneasy marriage of fragile drawn out melody and manic screaming discord. Don't expect the polished vocal harmonies of Linkin Park, this album is far more savage and haunting. The lyrics are drawn out, vague, and in places quite brilliant. It refreshing to here some challenging lyrics from a band who would stereotypically moan about some self involved meaningless drivel, indeed this is one step closer to the right direction. The guitars, as you may expect are down tuned, heavy, powerful - a tense mixture of tight powercords and eerie protracted mappings of the melody. The drums, are the undoubtedly the crutch of the album, a firm, heavy battery that cement the other less tangible aspects of songs such as Be Quiet and Drive, arguably the best song on the album. Around The Fur is my other personal favorite album, sinister and callous lyrics sung with tremendous veracity complement the chunky guitar and thumping drum beat - but, hay, I could rant all day about every song on this album, so just go and buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge 19 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, this album carries on where adrenaline left off, but takes the 'tones sound to a new level. The melodies are better, the lyrics are more acclomplished. This album has the trademark 'huge' sound, which adrenaline seemed to be missing. Adrenaline is fantastic, but ATF is simply a natural advancement for the 'tones. From here, they have carried on this kind of sound on white pony, and deftones, but have not bettered it. This album has also got their two best songs - my own summer, and be quiet and drive. Apart from those, look out for mascara, ATF, and the hidden track, as standout moments.
If you like nu metal, but want something more sophisticated, heavier, and ultimately far superior, then this and white pony are the albums to get. Equally, if you're into metallica, etc. but want to get into more modern music, then deftones are the band for you. Either way, get ATF, because it is THE BEST!!
