    Chino does not need to be AUTO TUNED!!!!! they did a terrible job auto tuning it and its terribly obvious!

    I have known these guys for 16 years. This album, for the most part, is the furthest from their true sound. In the past, their experimentation has seemed like a group evolution, yet knowing that Chino was not really involved in the overall production and was mostly m.i.a. until a year after it was recorded, I think that the fire is out. I am certain that this will be their last album...

    The album feels a bit lackluster when compared with their previous two albums (Self Titled and White Pony). As good as "Hole In The Earth" and "Beware The Water" are, songs like "Mein" and "Pink Cellphone" let the album down a small bit.

    More auto-pilot than its predecessor, SNW feels more empty and less dense than it should do, with 'Cherry Waves' and 'Combat' trying to elevate this into something a lot more vocal driven. Unfortunately this album struggles to connect in a way which their others did. Deftones are at a crossroads here in which direction to head next...and it shows.

    There's little of the fire and invention that characterised 2000's White Pony. [Nov 2006, p.140]
  2. Features the kind of envelope-pushing fans have come to expect.
  3. If you’ve even the slightest interest in ‘heavy’ music, you simply must make Saturday Night Wrist an integral part of your record collection.
