5.0 out of 5 stars sultry vocals meet hardcore rocking - delicious!, 19 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Deftones [Uk Version-Enh'D] (Audio CD)
Yet another great release from deftones. So far each album release has had its brilliant points and its low points. Deftones is a delicious blend of Chino's sensual, soft vocals on tracks such as the tender 'Minerva' and 'Deathblow', accompanied by beautiful guitar riffs from Stephen Carpenter.
It's all of their previous releases culminating in one - the hardcore roots and chilling screams of adrenaline bounced off sultry melodies and the cold beauty of White Pony.
The new album stands on its own merits as well though, some new entrancing beats and mixes blend well with Carpenter wailing on the guitar.
Stand out tracks would have to be 'Lucky You'. Haunting whispering vocals accompany very mellow and almost hypnotic mixing.
Another good listen would be 'Good Morning Beautiful', one of the more up tempo tracks, hammering bass lines and rough spine tingling harmonies can be found on 'Hexagram'.
I's classic deftones with some edgier, sweeter sounds to it. Whilst it may not be a huge step in another direction of sounds,its a tried and tested style that is part of what deftones are. Yet again they've come up with another inspirational fest of edge and icy grooves.
