I have never been fond of metal. In earlier years, 1996, after scanning through the late night music channels I wandered upon a clip of a supposed "new band", the Deftones, performing something close to noise which I had no intention of ever enduring.
Maturing was inevitable and since listening to rock over the years, metal was still boisterous ever since the arrival of Limp Bizkit and crew. The loud, heavy guitars did nothing and frontman Fred Durst seemed a fake, providing more comedy that seriousness.
When I heard a track by the Deftones on late night radio, I liked what I heard. Change (In The House Of Flies) had a mysterious, sinister edge that changed my view on metal completely. Like their album, White Pony, the Deftones actually DID something to inject much needed intelligence and originality into this genre. No longer is the lead singer of a metal band screaming his testicles off about how bad life is, how someone hurt him... lyrics so vague that for every listener, each track could mean something completely different.
Anger is usually the emotion released with heavy distortion, but here the music has so many transitions a track can move from rage to sheer beauty in an instant. Chino has a voice that moves this music like a tide - on Digital Bath the loud guitars suddenly cease as he mouths; "You breathed - then you stopped". Teenager is a soothing little number and the variety, which was needed to make this more than just a heavy-metal record. The whole album benefits from it, after it fades out, down come the blazing guitars with Street Carp and Knife Party.
The Deftones really outdid themselves here. No longer do I generalise metal after White Pony. This is an album with a dark, sinister undertone, a Clive Barker of albums, an album to listen to at the end of a hard day, relax, rock, release all your emotions to with one CD. If you take emotional music further than listening to a bland love song, you need this.

Released at a time when nu-metal ruled the rock roost, 'White Pony', the Deftones' 3rd record was released in a period when the band were expected to forsake any artistic development and create an album of simple riffs, rapping and tortured lyrics. Well, after listening to White Pony, the question begs, if that's what you want then why are you listening to the Deftones?
White Pony is the biggest departure for the band; yes, the chuggy riffs are still evident in 'Korea' and 'Elite', but whilst the Deftones have always forgone the option of making an easily heavy and hook laden rock album, this time they took the option of taking the listener on a proper journey. The moods the band creates here are truly sublime, emphasised in the emotive and driving 'Change (in the house of flies)' or 'Digital Bath'. Both with great melodic but firm riffs, and chased with a sense of beauty. And of course, the ever-impressive Chino Moreno's powerful voice bringing its trademark depth to this set of amazing songs.
Definitely the most absorbing and rewarding of the bands records, here, the Deftones delve into light electronica ('Teenager'), semi acoustic prog ('Pink Maggit') and...lets call it developmental rock for 'Passenger', which includes a stirring guest performance by Tool's Maynard James Keenan. And not once does any of this fail to work; each track flows seamlessly into the next, each track standing out from its predecessor as each flawless track makes itself recognisable.
Absorbing, rewarding and magnificent, White Pony is one of the best albums ever made, regardless of genre. If this doesn't make the hairs on your back stand up then nothing will.

This is the Deftone's best album, these guys are most definetly the best metal band on earth today. This album confirms it. It mixes great mellow songs like 'Digital bath', 'RX Queen', 'Pink Maggitt' and 'Teenager' with hard, melodic metal songs like 'Elite', 'Street Carp' and the albums best song - 'Knife Prty'. The rhythm section (in particular drummer Abe Cunningham) is fantastic as always, Stephen Carpenter uses his guitar to create some brilliant sounds and DJ Frank Delgados turntables add more ambience to the sound of 'White Pony'. And what of Chino Moreno? Well, Chino uses his voice brilliantly as always like sort of extra musical instrument. He explores the full range of his vocals on this album, where he goes from screaming 'youre into depression, cos it matches your eyes' on 'Elite' to sounding like a teenager on the song (you guessed it) 'Teenager'. His collaboration on 'Passenger' with Maynard from Tool is fantastic as it combines two of rock's most distinctive/powerful voices to stunning effect. Are you still reading this? Go buy 'White Pony'. Now! I repeat, you will NOT regret it!

I only bought this album about 5 hours ago so im on my third listen. My first impressions of White Pony were, o.k, what have they done here then. The first two songs (feiceira and digital bath) take a bit of getting used to, but after a couple of listens you notice two things. 1-they are right up there with My own summer and Be quiet and drive. 2- chino's voice and expression has improved alot. White Pony on a whole has more to offer than the the previous two albums. It is more dynamic and reaches a wider spectrem of music. The quieter moments of the album (teenager) are more convincing, like there not just throwing them in for good measure. The Deftones have moved on from their first albums, there is more to listen to. You cant compere one song to the other and the none of the songs get lost in the mess like alot of other metal bands have a habit of doing. Stand out tracks on this album for me are digital bath, rx queen, korea and passenger. Im not a huge metal fan, but you cant help liking this album, you will find alot of your average rock fans listening to White Pony and going out to buy it.
