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.
