Adrenaline is the reason why people got excited about the Deftones. They never really expanded on that style. They switched gears and became a softer version of themselves. Personally, I didn't like that. I appreciated them more for their energy on Adrenaline.

This is the same argument that Red Hot Chili Peppers' fans have with each other. Some people only like everything from before One Hot Minute.
That would be me.

I'm not a fan of their work post-Adrenaline.
So you can see where we're coming from then!

You just agreed with me.

It still doesn't change the fact that I can't understand where the fans of the softer Deftones are coming from.

That's funny

Have you even listened to anything since 1995??

here are some songs from the new record:

good squad

gauze

poltergeist

you might want to actually listen to the records after adrenaline

they're pretty good

Does anyone think Deftones got softer, if that's even a proper description, because Chino's voice couldn't continue in the Adrenaline format?

It's not Adrenaline hardcore either. That's what I'm saying. I like them at their most hardcore and nothing has been as hard as Adrenaline.

Now before y'all ctrl-c and ctrl-v bits and pieces of my posts, understand that I like the Deftones. I just don't think they've topped Adrenaline yet.

Perhaps I'm just a craggy old young adult.

I'm hoping to get tickets for my wife and I to the Mobile show @ Soul Kitchen. They go on sale @ 10 tomorrow. :fingerscrossed:

What band is going to come out and say their current album isn't as good as the previous albums? Every band believes they've dome their best work each and every time.

Yeah guys our new album is pretty good. I would say the fifth best thing we've released.

being in bands, no band wants to make the same record twice

which apparently is what some fans want

bands progress, try new ideas, new thoughts for songs

if the deftones made adrenaline 5 times over, don't you think that would be a little retarded?

Baton Rouge go on sale @ 11:00

Mobile go on sale @ 10:00

I thought about trying to come in and go to the Varsity show with friends but the show is on a Monday. I figured it would be much easier to go to Mobile for some Saturday night wrist action. Only a short drive from me in Pensacola.
