Maybe when they abandon their arrested development and stop convincing themselves the world is aligned specifically for their personal displeasure, they'll arrive at something listenable. [July 2000, p.112]
Nov 6, 2010Purely a fantastic album. 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. Somehow, Deftones can mix 'dark' with 'soothing' and make it work.
Personal Highlights: Change, Digital Bath, Knife Party, Passenger, RX Queen.… Expand
Nov 13, 2012It took me 12 years to realize that this is probably one of the best metal albums out there. Full spectrum of emotions within this album. Every song is enjoyable and they somehow get stuck in the head so deep that you can remember every detail and note even after prolonged period of not listening to any of the songs. In other words - there isn't a single song that I do not like in this fantastic album.… Expand
Nov 17, 2011I Wanted to give the album a 10 but sometimes the album bores me, but when i'm in the mood the album is a masterpiece with a great intro song Feticeira a Maynard James Keenan colaboration and a grammy award winning song (Elite). Also being one of the albums that has one of the deftones most succesful single (Change). It's in resume.An outstanding deftones album, but the deftones always make amazing music but this one just launched them to success. (I'M A HUGE DEFTONES FAN)… Expand
Apr 19, 2013Deftones has always been difficult to explain or categorize a specific musical genre. But despite not feeling comfortable in that place have been one of the best capitalized groups of Nu Metal's move in the early 90s.
His first two jobs Adrenaline (1995) and Around the Fur (1997) were used to be known in his own country, but his third plate White Pony (2000) Deftones achievement acquire a name worldwide earning the respect of critics and managing to sound massively.
"Change (In the House of Flies)" and "Digital Bath" were the themes emblematic of White Pony. Few others like the quiet "Teenager" surprised by the change from the style of the band.'s Also worth noting the presence Maynard James Keenan of Tool singer who develops nicely in the duet performed with Chino Moreno on "Passenger".
Despite denying the label "key band of Nu Metal", thanks to this current Deftones astronomically increased his popularity and managed to stay through the years mutated into their sound.
In conclusion: White Pony is one of the best albums of Deftones, its evolution in sound, creativity and complexity. not listen, would be an offense to the music.… Expand
Jan 27, 2014white pony was something a little different from its predecessors. The commercial success of the band was the extreme. Songs thematically quite different from one another, ranging from Zen and heavy rhythm, with a touch of melancholy and special effects while also addressing drug use. A battery well executed by Abe Cunningham with more "turns" than before, not unworthy of the rest of insturumentos well executdos, but less prominently. Each track has something special, more experimental and new, however, following the standards of the band, White Pony was the biggest commercial success of the band, even won a Grammy in 2001 for the song Elite, and rightly so, because the album is good, but if you are not a fan of more contemporary rock or even the band, your ears need to get used to it.… Expand
