Self Titled Salvation,
This review is from: Deftones [Uk Version-Enh'D] (Audio CD)
If you are a Deftones fan buy this album! If youre becoming one, this would be a good place to start! There are many similarities here to White Pony but this album has moved on a step from the third album. There is a bit more METAL in this album but Chino and the crew have still maintained the unique atmousphere that is visible in previous triumphs.
Hexagram is a good introductory track like Feiticeira off White Pony and the ten tracks that follow all give off a similar ambience with doses of anger, fatigue, hapiness, sadness, whatever they sing about! Their sound is much more refined than previous attempts on Around The Fur (that album's only asset is 'Shove It') with admirable strumming by Stephen.
The best thing about this album is the unnerving feeling you get from epic, yet creepy tracks like Bloody Cape. They're heavy as hell too! The only let down is when they crank it down with frankly boring tracks like Lucky You. However, the album as a whole just kicks ass so there's nothing to worry about that 'bad egg' track.
You were a cabbage if you werent moved by White Pony and the same applies here! This is a brilliant album with bucket loads of depth and Minerva is cool so get it!
