The third (and best) album from the Deftones, finally back in stock. A quantum leap for the Nu-Metal genre, far too complex for big shorts rock bands like Korn or Limp Bizkit to even come close. Incredible depth of care was put into this record production, matching the quality of songwriting that shifted the band firmly into the realms of critical adoration. Obvious reference points would be the darker end of The Cure's catalogue or rock masterpieces like Tool's Undertow / Soundgarden's Superunknown, but this is a singular piece of work that may not be possible for any band to match. A high watermark for metal.
