5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding fourth effort from Sacramento's finest, 3 Jun 2003
This review is from: Deftones [Uk Version-Enh'D] (Audio CD)
Following the mixed reception for White Pony, Chino & co are obviously looking to reclaim some lost ground with their self-titled fourth release. And, quite simply, it is a stunning return after an absence of three years.
Releasing 'Minerva' as the first single was a masterstroke - it encapsulates everything this album is about - Chino's mournful wail sailing gloriously over a massive riff built around a shimmeringly beautiful chord.
But Minerva, cracker though it is, doesn't even figure in the best three songs on the album. The superb 'Battle axe', with its menacing intro (reminiscent of 'Fireal' - the last song on Adrenaline) and fall headlong into a huge riff is up there, along with the last track 'Moana', which starts off in a similar brooding vein before giving way to Chino's superb vocals.
But the standout track here is 'Bloody Cape' which, incredibly, manages to deliver a catchy, poppy hook whilst absolutely rocking your world! I'm not kidding hombres, the main riff outdoes such monsters as Elite, My Own Summer and Korea for heaviness.
Words can't state how impressed I am with this corker. If you're into them already you'll have the album, if not, then trust me it will not disappoint.
