  1. White Pony ends up being more accessible than the group's two previous albums, because it's not a half-formed mess but a classic alternative-rock album, as gentle and catchy as it is dark.
  2. Their most adventurous and assured album to date?

This is the album where they learn when they need to be quiet, and it pays off. This album is sonic, and heavy, and grungy. But always delicate and soothing and dark.

    Personal Highlights: Change, Digital Bath, Knife Party, Passenger, RX Queen.
