5.0 out of 5 stars The best of all the new metal bands, 16 Jan. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Around The Fur (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.
