5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Deftones, 22 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diamond Eyes (Audio CD)
I've been a long time Deftones fan, but I was not a huge fan of Saturday Night Wrist, I thought it was okay but probably their weakest album. I guess then that I had some reservations about this their next album. I shouldn't have worried, Diamond Eyes is stunningly good. Track 2, "Royal" is raw and visceral and ends with Chino literally screaming as a driving heavy guitar plays out - its a shiver down the spine moment and the stand out track for me - an instant classic. There are many highlights but I think you need to find these out for yourself.
Deftones have always been an acquired taste, the tracks on here are a diverse mix of grace and ambience one moment followed by raw power and force on another. If you fall in to either camp and aren't prepared to embrace both you won't get it - if you are already a Deftones fan you will love it, if you fancy trying something different I think you will soon be converted.
