This was the album that got me into this band. Had not heard anything like this at that time. mostly cuz I didn't have a pc and just had the radio. so when Minerva started playing, it hit me. It was this sound, this amazing sound I had been searching for. And since buying this Cd ten years ago, it's just been an amazing trip listening to them, seeing them, and meeting others who love this band.

Nearly ten years ago today my buddy and I picked up this album at the store, and jammed it all day during school. My girlfriend at the time hated it - our relationship ended a few months later. That same night my friend and I drove up to Sacramento to see them play at the Crest Theater. It was the first time I saw Deftones live and it blew me away. We got backstage both before and after the show, and I shook Chino and Abe's hands and said what's up to Chi. I was 17 at the time and it was like meeting superheroes.

I'll never forget that, and I'll never ever forget this album.

I thought that was the language of this board, everyone's middle name is fag, or so I thought from what I've seen, just enjoy the music and quit bitchin. always looking for a fight.

I thoroughly enjoy the music, especially this album, and this is where I come to discuss it. I don't come to here to listen to how you've found the second coming in DE and KNY. Stick to those threads so the rest of us don't have to hear it.

Dude I know you enjoy this attention and you feel like a hero, but you're wrong. go back and read all my posts, I didn't bring up other albums in this thread and blah blah blah. Every post I make besides ones where I get flamed for my outright love of this band is all about this band, you guys are the ones that get off topic trying to fight me for being positive. if you want to call me a fanboy then go ahead, but back off my posts and mind your own business, cause I;m not doing wrong and I'm tired of wasting posts on you assholes flaming and trolling this board.

yeah i'm not even racist i only hate black people

besides that quote, you actually made a worthy thread, and it's not an opinion that it is not they're best but yes it could be anyone's favorite, it was for me at one time. The True best Deftones records are easily chapter 1 and 2. AKA Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan.

May 20th 2003 was what day in American history?

Who appeared at No.2 on the Billboard pop charts?

Oh.

Self titled is responsible for Big Roy's favorite Deftones song of all time....Needles and Pins. I wish it didn't fade out at the end because those screams are unreal

I wish Needles and Pins and WGTB both didn't fade out at the end.

Ten years later and this album hasn't aged a day for me. Still fucking amazing and unlike pretty much anything else....  I just really wish there was some damn demos from it though......

I agree...I love White Pony and all, but it it feels so 2000 for me. Like...you can tell that is when they decided to switch things up (and they sure did). Not saying thats a bad thing, but it FEELS like an experimental album. With S/T, I feel like it defines THE deftones sound from the past and what they will do after that.

The aggression [Hexagram, WGTB, BLoody Cape] the dissonant sound of Stef's guitar is just amplified, the dreaminess of White Pony (Minerva, Battle/Axe, Deathblow] and experimental [Anniversary, Lucky You]...

Like others have stated, they could've gone with the success of White Pony and done even more experimentation, but they held some of those ideas back and to me, it served them well. Its a complete album to me. I love this album for certain moments that just feel raw [Chino's breathing before he starts singing on N&P, his screaming in Hexagram, Stef's ending riff during Bloody Cape makes me want to punch someone repeatedly, etc etc]

I love this album.
..Yeah don't go there,

I let you get to me

yeah yeah.

That's interesting you see White Pony as so 2000 I wonder if it's like a memory association thing because I first heard WP after ST and SNW and I thought WP was the newest, I was pretty shocked when I found out that WP was the successor of ATF the change in sound is massive they sound like a new band. Self Titled and White Pony are tied for my favourite album they're are both timeless I think that's because they didn't even fit in to what was happening musically when they were released so there's not the whole sound of the time association.

white pony is the absolute sound of the new turn of the millennium, it has the year 2000 written all over it. it's so perfect for being futuristic and star wars. I still like Self titled more, it's absolutely better. I bought a couple copies of white pony the day it came out and they were already my favorite band but that made me tell everyone. self titled means everything though, it's the perfect defining album of any band.
