be quiet and drive :D
Although Hexagram comes close, as do countless others...
Max Cavalera during the chorus. He's so embarrassing!!
although I had forgotten how amazing 'Anniversary of an Unimportant Event' was until I listened to it this morning
It's just so big :)
I also like Bored off Adrenaline - shame the rest of the album was utter pigwank.
When Girls Telephone Girls
Too many hits!
When Girls Telephone Boys, for anybody about to get pedantic on my ass.
Are you serious?! Root, Seven Words, Engine #9. It's a freaking classic!
It's been so long since I've listened to it (or the Deftones in general, actually ...) that I'm not really in a position to offer any detailed arguments.
However, when I listened to the Deftones all the time, I still thought it was shite. Of the three albums I know (or knew) well it's far and away the weakest.
After White Pony, S/T and Saturday Night Wrist were released i realised Adrenaline was toilet paper.
<grump grump grump>
anyway, a list to cheer me up:
3. When Girls Telephone Boys
like seriously..theyre your favourite deftones songs EVER?
where.the.fuck.is.BE QUIET AND DRIVE?!
was hella fine in its day, but by christ it hasn't aged well.
"This ain't no motherfuckin' stick up just pick up the stick up
And watch it roll"
followed by headup.
those songs played live are intense.
it's as good today as it was when it came out. are you saying it sounds dated? poorly produced?
it's definetely a product of the 90s, but i don't feel it's dated at all.
but I think it'd have to be Back To School for me
and it has nostalgic value particularly the video version
with mention to Digital Bath
Be Quiet And Drive
If only tonight we could sleep (A great Cure cover, not just because you can hear me singing in the mob before it starts)
Knife Party FTW!
MINERVA IS A TUNE ASWELL
Around the Fur
Be Quiet and Drive
Alot of good stuff there!
For me, atmospheric Deftones can't touch heavy as hell, rock the f**k out Deftones, hence Adrenaline and Around the Fur were, and still are, easily their best records.
Deftones show in Manchester on their first record with Far, Helmet and Incubus supporting is still my best ever gig. Hence added sentimental value.
Awesome. Otherwise Minerva, Hexagram, Digital Bath are all stunners. Deftones are untouchable when they do the atmospheric shoe-gaze heavy vibe and hopefully Eros will be more of the same
adrenaline is still my favourite deftones album.
but probably Change. Or Knife Party. Or Kimdracula.
Purely for the Muezzin vocals. Live, it verges on euphoric. OH GOD, even remembering it is making me squirm.
