Top critical review
Good album but they got better as they progressed as a band.
on 6 January 2012
This album has got some great tracks on with my favourite being Birthmark, Engine no.9 and Root = All killer tracks! The bass lines are great too but the album is lacking depth overall compared to their later work. I also find the vocals and melodies better on their later work too, but there's still a lot of raw passion on this album and it's worth checking if you are a fan of Deftones or just want something heavy. Would give it 3.5 if i could.
