Guest review by
Sacremento's seminal act Deftones released their second album after hearing the tragic news about Chi Cheng's horrible car accident and while it doesn't top White Pony, it is an impressive effort on its own.

Deftones was pretty much walking on a thin line after that tragic accident. I can really feel the negative energy they were bearing at that moment and finally, they decided to continue without forgetting their injured comrade. Released in 2010, Diamond Eyes was the beginning of the band's path to self-recovery, unleashing the fury and the rage and the pain in the form of, in my opinion, one of their most awesome works, (at least by Deftones' standards). But now it remains to be seen whether Koi No Yokan can really become a turning point in the band's career.

Another very good Deftones album.What this one seems to lack is Moreno's aggressive, harsher vocals from the band's earlier albums but it is more than made up for with each song. What really stands out to me here is the quality of the atmosphere and the instrumentation. Once again the band shows their variety in musical styles, songs such as the lilting 'Entombed' and melancholic 'Romantic dreams' being contrasted by the aggressive heaviness of 'Leathers' and 'Good squad'. This sound isn't for everyone, but it certainly pleases me.
