What goes on in the head of Chino Moreno? Now this is not just about the lyrics of this album, this said-to-be the best Deftones album till now. And I agree. But still, from where does he get the inspiration, from where does he get the mood? Chino himself has said that the lyrics are just emotions from an instant of time, a shard of an event. But what makes the lyrics so complete and special is the vocabulary Chino uses - what words he uses, how he lines them up, how he pronounces and how he twists them. And again, it's not only about lyrics.

Rating: 9 I'll probably get a lot of hate replies for saying this, but i believe Deftones to be one of the most unique and iconic bands ever to have existed. Their music has so much variation and diversity, that it's hard not to at least like one of their songs. With 'White Pony', they had reached their creative peak, and were yet to become an even bigger band with a sound all theirs. The mindblowing overtones of 'Digital Bath', distorted and disturbing voice running throughout 'Elite', and that extremely haunting closer 'Pink Maggit' are just three examples of how uniquely significant this album is for the 21st Century. It's just coincidence that it was released in the wake of the new millenium. Some may say this album is overrated, but i have to disagree completely. They really don't make albums like this anymore, for many reasons.

You are talking about Deftones right? The band that started off as a totall Korn rip-off (just like Coal Chamber) and never put all their Korn influences aside.

Deftones aren't anywhere near nu-metal anymore though. Listen to Diamond Eyes, nothing whatsoever Korn-like about it.

Leaving aside the fact that I believe that is absolutely not true, Deftones formed in 1988/89 and Korn in 1992/93; so you should at least invert that statement.

I am. A total-Korn Rip-off you say? Deftones' music is much maturer in my opinion.

Rating: 8 There's a bit of filler on here. Some great tracks here as well though like 'Back To School', 'Knife Party' and 'Passenger' which have a really laid back feel to them and nice groove. I like this band because, like kratekid up there said, they are quite unique sounding for a 'nu metal' band, or whatever you would decide to label the music on this album. Personally I think it has a much more alternative feel to it.

Rating: 10 Deftones' greatest album. It's a shame I got to know these guys after a long time.

Rating: 9 Classic album, I love it. Not my favorite Deftones album, but it is my 2nd favorite. There is a level of ambiance that you get from listening to this album that is just plain cool, some songs like passenger and pink maggot blow my mind even after listening to them years later.

  God, this album is just great, i dont care if its so called "Nu" metal. This is probably the best Deftones album, with each song being memorable and unique. A small amount of filler songs is the reason why i dont rate it with a 10.

Rating: 4 So, this album was based around a cocaine addiction...?

Sure this band has some talent & this is in my collection but no mater how much I try I just can not enjoy it or appreciate it.
