5.0 out of 5 stars possibly the greatest ever album
the album is very loud and very aggressive. If ever you should find yourself in a bad mood, a nice sing/scream along will almost certainly make you feel better. It always does me. This is just one of the coolest albums there is. Buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good album but they got better as they progressed as a band.
This album has got some great tracks on with my favourite being Birthmark, Engine no.9 and Root = All killer tracks! The bass lines are great too but the album is lacking depth overall compared to their later work. I also find the vocals and melodies better on their later work too, but there's still a lot of raw passion on this album and it's worth checking if you are a...

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it alot, 24 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
After listening to Around the Fur, and being blown away by it's originality and power (enough to get the most stressed person relaxed, after a stint of exploding on the dance floor), I obviously went ahead and bought Adrenaline. I was, and still am, in awe when it comes to them. The CD does take a few playings to get used to (as does any CD) before you start appreciating the cleverness of the band. Obvious favorite is 7 words, but if you like the mellower side of the Deftones, your fave will probably be Minus Blindfold....anyway, here's to good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first and the best Deftones album, 22 Oct. 2008
By 
Oliver Martin "ole_martini" (Kent, England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
Such raw passion and energy...'Adrenaline' finds Deftones at their finest.

Opener 'Bored' sets a high standard that the album manages to maintain throughout.

Classics like 'Lifter', 'One Weak', 'Nosebleed', '7 Words' and 'Engine No.9' keep the pace and passion at a frantic level that is entirely under sophisticated control.

Fantastic album that doesn't sound either dated or tired.

Anyone with a remote liking for metal should buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute class, 28 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
This album has so many depths to it, Chino moreno on vocals ranges from quiet almost angelic singing to shreaking angry message with the emotional lyrics this album contains. Stephen Carpenters influence on this album is very obvious as the build up of every song into a breath taking riff is aparent on each track. This album is a must for anyone who appreciates good music and good hard hitting vocals. Keep up the good work chino and the crew!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously good., 1 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
If you have only got either Around The Fur or White Pony or both of these, you NEED to buy this one. The music is so much more powerful and spine-chilling than anything since they released this album, such songs as Bored, Nosebleed and Root bringing out the best of them but Engine No. 9 is just something else...in a class of its own. I can't describe any more how good this album is, buy it and see for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars deftones rule!, 31 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
this is one of the very few albums where i can say that every song is gr8! it is a ***** album if there ever was one. There are so many stand out tracks here, "Bored" "Nosebleed" "Lifter" "Root" "7Words" "Engine No.9" etc... This album often gets overlooked and some have even called it dissapointing!! Yet, it is an amazing album and any one who likes linkin park or limp bizkit... check out the real masters... buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars equally as masterful as around the fur, but heavier, 17 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
this was the deftones first album, and along with around the fur, their best. This album is raw, loud and every single track has a fantastic riff and painfully powerful vocals. Standout tracks include bored (an early sign of the influence a repetetive riff can have), minus blindfold (haunting guitars and vocals), engine number nine (sheer metal excellance), and best of all: root (the best intro ever combined with perfect vocals and instrumental backing). if you like hard, heavy metal with piercing vocals and thumping riffs that deserve full volume, buy this album before all others.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic 1995 debut!, 3 Aug. 2006
By 
Mr. W. A. Third "will_3rd" (London, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
The last reviewer gave this album a bad review, which is totally incorrect this is a classic album containing some of 'tones best songs.
I first bought this album in 1999 and now some 7 years later it still sounds as good as ever even though I hadn't listened to it for years, vastly superior to the their latest album Saturday Night Wrist.
The album contains some of my current favourite tracks including bored, minus blindfold, nosebleed, lifter, 7 words, engine number 9, fireal and fist.
By the way, what does the previous reviewer mean by this album not being heavy, it most certianly is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their heaviest album; Still a classic, 22 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Adrenaline (Audio CD)
This first release for Deftones has caused them trouble for amny years, as the rawness and heavey sound has labelled them as nu-metal, a tag they have only recently shaken off with the release of the convolting White Pony. But this album is a classic debut, matching Korn's debut and certainly surpassing the first offernig from Limp Bozkit, Three Dollar Bill Y'All.
It starts with the amazing bass of Chi Cheng on Bored, and the formulae of heavy bass, catchy riffs and the again convolting vocals of Chino Moreno thorought until the closer Fireal.
Standout tracks are Minus Blindfold, with the speed of the ending bridge, 7Words with the anger and repeteion of the word Suck by Moreno, and the classic Engine No.9.
However, even though I highly recommend this, i would not start your Deftones collection with it as it does give you a false facade on what the Deftones are about, so I would recoomend, in fat, working backwoards from White Pony (buy the special edition, which includes the track Back To School, rather the EP which conttains this) to this and you will be in awe of one of the best bands to come out of the US in the past decade.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)

Again, bought for a friend who loves this band. He has been to see them a couple of times and still blasts the CD from his work van.
