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.

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.
