Appreciate sharinglungs thanks, however the quality is not so clear. There is a lot of talk about Jerry's solo and how is melancholy. Maybe Phantom bride is one of the sadder songs on the record.

Try now.

Sounds like Xenon is more of a nirvana type track, Phantom bride takes off when Jerry's solo hits, geometric headdress is a recommended download.

Compared to KNY, gore is a great album.

Sounds like some songs sound like mourning chi.

Has lots of breathtaking moments and is dark and beautiful.

Find it hard to believe that anyone could say that KNY didn't push boundaries for the band. Loved that album, and with that said, if Gore somehow turns out better than that, I'll be ecstatic to say the least.

Why would it be 5? Maybe they only rate out of 4...

and download means that those are songs that the reviewer wants you to listen to if you only had the chance to download 3 songs off the album.

I wasn't a big fan of KNY. Diamond Eyes however was a solid record. Maybe the author and I have similar interests....

people hear different things i guess i have to respect that, but when i constantly hear negativity towards koi no yokan i get as depressed as the people that hold those views. please put it back on your record player and put your guard down, thank you.

gore might be the best one yet, i think it will be.

Sweet! I loved Nirvana In Utero when I was kid. Plus I really loved the whole Koi cd. Although I question a little of the review b/c for me I thought they shot Koi off into space with their atmospheric sound.
Title: Re: First Review of GORE
Post by: Inkblades on Mar 16, 2016, 02:27 AM
Koi would be pushing boundaries if this wasn't the band that gave us ATF, WP, S/T and SNW. When you know the unorthodox directions they've gone in the past, KNY just seems staid. DE didn't really take them in new directions either, but it was more successful because it was a "back to basics/recharge" kind of album, which was necessary after Chi's accident (and also because DE is the more cohesive album). I don't think the reviewer is saying KNY is a bad album, but it's just not as left-field as we know they are capable of being. KNY was Deftones resting on their laurels a little bit. Anyway, this review is exciting, because it seems Gore is a little more dark, haunting, experimental and complex.

Title: Re: First Review of GORE
Post by: rainnyx4 on Mar 16, 2016, 03:15 AM
KNY is easily their most progressive, experimental, and complex album. I don't know how this can really be argued. You may not like the tone of the songs, but I don't see how anyone could objectively look at it and say that ATF, WP, S/T, and SNW were somehow more artistically expansive and risky (though you could argue that WP was equally daring and that there were certain songs off of the other albums that were real curve-balls like Anniversary and PCP).

nope, it was easily their most experimental album your all backwards about it, you really should write for a column, you have short cuts, cliche opinions like they do.

i will say KNY had just a bunch of good songs and nothing amazing, but thats all I want is good, if its good its good, and the album as a whole is amazing, putting all the good together.
Title: Re: First Review of GORE
Post by: Inkblades on Mar 16, 2016, 04:10 AM
Not really, because outside of this place, many think S/T and SNW are their weakest, while KNY was more critically acclaimed. You're actually in the cliched majority opinion. Not I. Anyway, I'm good on writing columns. I'll just keep voicing my opinion right here where it belongs.

But how is KNY their most experimental? White Pony is clearly the most experimental, because every album from them since WP has been trying to follow the WP model in one way or another - to varying degrees of success. But wait a minute, aren't you the same guy who was saying KNY is also their heaviest?  ;D ;D

And we have different expectations when it comes to Deftones albums. I don't want just a bunch of "good" songs. Why settle for an album of "good" songs when I can have 11 amazing songs, which equals a masterpiece of an album? In other words, an ATF, a WP or a S/T.

Oh my god, every single thread descends into the same argument because Yoi Yes Yokan keeps stating his opinion as fact. Shut up, please, jeez.

Koi No Yokan is experimental in my opinion, it has a very different feel to even their other experimental albums. But nothing will be as experimental as White Pony, they completely switched things up to the point where they've done so much, expanded on their sound so much, that nothing they do will be as experimental as that.

Anyway, awesome review. All reviews and comments point to the same direction, that the album has a change in mood from the last two albums, is more dark, and I guess sad, at times, if this review is correct. Yet that it's not just an album full of the same thing, there are different sounds and emotions below the underlying tone. I really can't wait to hear this album, should be a breath of fresh air if it's as big a change in direction from the previous two as it seems to be.

thats all any of their albums are is a bunch of good songs that create a masterpiece, you'll never find anything more than that from any other group.

mr generalization.

every album has been trying to follow the white pony model? yet self titled was considered the disappointment because it was straightforward and supposedly less atmospheric  (to dry ears)? actually SNW was the most spaced out album but it just wasn't as strong as KNY or WP so I didn't mention it, it's really scraped together, but it's easily obvious it was recorded on mars.

and what about KNY being their heaviest? if i remember we were talking about the difference between emotional heavyness and physical 8 string chugga chugga mesa rectifier heavyness, right?  and yes diamond eyes and kny have some of their heaviest material, thankfully they are good enough to not just make a knucklehead, slaughterhouse record like you want.

Oh my god, every single thread descends into the same argument because Yoi Yes Yokan keeps stating his opinion as fact. Shut up, please, jeez.

I guess I should learn how to state my opinion as opinion, you're right. But then the authority and truth in what I say wouldn't be striking a chord within you.

I don't want a "knucklehead" album, so who is making generalizations now? If I wanted that, I wouldn't be a Deftones fan. I'd be on a message board for fucking Limp Bizkit or some random generic metal band.

I simply want an album that goes deeper than Koi No Yokan. That's it. It's not a bad album (they've never made a bad album), but it's just not their best to me - by a long shot. Sorry that upsets you so much, but you'll just have to deal with it.

More of the atmospherically bleak and beautiful.
Throw a rock and five times out of six you’ll hit a band that’ll tell you how distinctive their sound is. Those bands are liars. Not so Deftones, whose elegiac paeans (it’s a contradiction, but it works) to longing ring out loud and true.

The songs come wrapped up in a densely layered mesh of crashing guitars and Chino Moreno’s mournful wail, which is even more endearing when it becomes an unlikely falsetto.

They were once (incorrectly) lumped in with the nu metal scene, but everyone has to start somewhere, and like all the best bands, their evolution (check out 2012’s seismic Koi No Yokan if you want to be knocked sideways) has left a jaw-dropping trail. Abstract and startling, listen to the hefty groove of Prayers/Triangles or the slow blooming Phantom Bride and feel the earth move beneath your feet.

Not really much of a review :(

real easy to spot a deftones poser. if they say they dont like S/T or SNW....total fucking posers...

S/T is my favourite... and SNW my least favourite because it deviated so much from what was established on S/T - vulnerability, emotional resonance, cohesive ego and a willingness to address problems.

So...

Anyway, as for KNY, I said it at the time, I like the album a lot but it's a very safe album. I wouldn't say it was experimental at all. Solid song writing, but pretty much every track on there is a solid verse-chorus-verse, maybe one or two having a slow burn intro. I love it because it's simple - DE and KNY were tests for me to see them get back to cohesion after how scatological SNW was. I actually didn't want 'experimental' after SNW, and S/T was already a reminder that they didn't need it anyway.

In all honesty I don't even think the few reviews I have seen were people who had access to the entire album. Very little was mentioned beside the songs that have already been released, and anything about the songs that haven't been released was very generic. Sounds like just a bullshit review to get clicks.

Not everyone who has access to an album is going to leak it. Reviewers do get to listen to albums, and what are they going to say about a song that's going to be so specific that makes you think they've heard it? List the entire lyrics? Besides that, everything is generic. They said (L)MIRL is like the soundtrack to a psychological thriller, that Hearts/Wires has Pink Floyd influences, etc. It's not a conspiracy, dude.

Gore may very well be the best album of Deftones career, which is truly remarkable for a band that has been together for the better part of thirty years.  When many other bands that have been around that long have had their best creative period come and go, Deftones are giving both new and old fans something to bang their heads too. It contains tracks that could match up with the best tracks from their earlier work, and at the same time it is a zenith of collaborative experimentation. With Gore, Deftones created their best record in at least fifteen years and have in turn ensured a strong level of relevancy in a time that rock music is on the back-burner.

Deftones: Gore
9/10
