4.0 out of 5 stars thank god for deftones, at last an intelligent metal band!, 25 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: White Pony (Audio CD)
White Pony is a big improvement compared to the previous two albums, as they seemed to have dropped the 'same-as-all-other-american-bands' approach for a much darker, moodier feel. This works beautifully, and tracks like Change and Digital Bath really stand out as excellent examples of this. Change in particular has a massive effect on you, and this is something that cannot be said about many metal songs. This album relies much less on the constant cacophony of noise that the previous two did, and instead builds up to it using quiet atmospheric sections in the songs. This leaves the album as a whole with quite a sinister feel, which many bands try to get, but few actually achieve. The album does have its weak points, namely songs like Korea which sound a little too much the deftones of old. It does not seem to go anywhere, instead hovering around the 'too-loud-to-hear-what-he-is-saying' mark. However, this does not greatly detract from what i would describe as one of the best metal albums of 2000. Makes a welcome change from Limp Bizkit, eh?
