Not sure if this has already been posted or how legit this review is, albeit being positive. 4/5 stars. http://teamrock.com/review/2016-03-18/deftones-gore

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 :(

Yeah, I don't know how people can call 3 sentences with barely any details, and most of it talking about other things than the music, a review.

Especially since you have to register to read said three sentences. Was hoping for some new song details myself.

Yeah it's basically a generalized description of what could be any of their albums, with a name drop of two songs that everyone already knows about, one of which we've already heard.

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.

S/T is a masterpiece and one or two songs from SNW (IMO) are good, the rest is crap.

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. Plus if these people have access,  it would have leaked by now

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
