    Holy shit... So after finally sitting down with Gore, I can now say it is tied for my second favorite Deftones album. I went back a few pages and found that I said I needed to sit down with it again last year. It's heavy, intimate, and spaceyyyy. The fact that every track bleeds into themselves just makes it that much more immersive.

    I don't know... I have been listening to their discog again and initially enjoyed Gore but now it's not doing anything for me. There's not enough variation imo.

    This is what I like about it though. It doesn't stray away from anything else than what it wants to be. It definitely has to fit what you are feeling at the time, and you can tell they knew exactly what they wanted to do with it.

    Gore would have better better received had the production been a bit better. It includes some outstanding songs though.

    I have to agree with this. Id listen to album more if chino didnt sound like he was singing in the middle of an empty school hall.

    I think the production is great. It suits the vibe they were going for. They weren't trying to make the typical Deftones record, but inspired by the production of music they're influenced by. It is meant to be big and cavernous.

    Like I said in the previous post, when Gore was first released I was just getting back into Deftones so I think the hype and newness of the record swayed me toward a favorable opinion. It doesn't really hold up for me anymore. Kind of wish they had gone full shoegaze like Prayers/Triangles. Also, I listened to it after White Pony and the self titled so that could have had something to do with how I felt about the album this time. The production is definitely a problem. Everything sounds flat and lifeless.

    Also, I'm not sure if this bugs anyone else but I am seriously triggered every time I hear that click snare during the verses in Hearts/Wires. Completely ruins the track for me. Something about it sounds artificial and it's mixed so fucking loud.

    The fact they play 0 songs from Gore tells you all you need to know about how they feel about it. To me it sounds more like another Palms record. It reeks of all Chino and no Stef with Chino indulging in his shoegaze dreamy post rock stuff (and the godawful Morrissey impressions he does at times on the record). Its a passable Deftones album, the same way Interpols 2010 S/T album is passable....But still rock bottom of their discography. They need to bring the teeth back for this new record (which I think they will).....Their 2003 album is my favorite because its their heaviest and some people hate that record so to each his own

    My mind is SOOO confused! Change is my favorite Deftones songs, not even Britney can ruin it. His other mashups are kinda fun too. Tool and Taylor Swift!

    Going through another listen of their discography after the process of ripping the CD's, but I can't see the Self-Titled being unseated. "Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event"... I just started listing songs and realized this might be a perfect album.

    If you're doing the maths..

    Tomorrow marks 3.5 years since Gore was released, which means that in 6 days, this new album will take the title for the longest gestating Deftones record ever. Diamond Eyes previously held that record, arriving 3.5 years and 4 days after SNW. And that creative duration involved an entire album being scrapped due to a band member getting injured and eventually dying..

    So yea, this new record had better be KNY/ATF levels of excellence, with all the time they've had to create it..

    I wouldn't be holding my breath. See what happened with Tool (I'm a big Tool fan, Fear Inoculum was excellent, BUT is below their best work, Lateralus and Aenema), amount of time between records is not equal to amount of work in between records, and even then, amount of work devoted to a particular album is not equivalent to quality of the album. By your logic...there were 2.5 years between Diamond Eyes and KNY, and to me KNY is their best album. And 2.5 years doesn't seem like long!

    With that being said, I feel like they are going to release something stronger than Gore.
