About this deal

Not quite as punchy as my other deftones records but the guitars are THICK on this one and the riffs are bone crushing.

I had zero surface noise despite having played the record previously and not cleaning it beforehand as a pre-caution like I usually do. No matter what type of project Deftones followed up their career-defining White Pony with, it was destined to disappoint at least some of their devout fanbase.Chino’s vocals are warm, rich, and clear, and Stephen’s guitar really slices through each track- all supported by Abe’s punchy drumming and Chengs present basswork (really nice to be able to hear and feel the bass in these recordings! Meeting Deftones on the Rock am Ring 2000 in person all stoned, super friendly and easy going right before they entered the stage was not what I expected at all. If I had to give any gripes, paper sleeves house the records and that's always gonna dock a little bit of points in my book.

Deftones - Limited 20th Anniversary Edition Ruby Red Vinyl

Instrumentation sounds much more dynamic than listening to the album digitally, even with my relatively modest audio set up. The record was pressed nice and flat, and the labels are really pretty in white (no idea why they changed from the original color, but ce la vie). Music wise, this album has really grown on me- from initially being avoided due to me disliking the cover art for some odd reason which I’ve since gotten over and come to appreciate- to now being one of my favorite deftones releases! Now hitting its 20th Anniversary in 2023, the band celebrate by releasing this limited edition ruby red vinyl version. They have released nine albums to date, with three Platinum (Adrenaline, Around the Fur, White Pony) and one Gold certifications (Deftones).Around The Fur and especially White Pony have really aged extremely well imho, almost like an excellent wine. For such a dynamic album this pressing captures everything flawlessly with no surface noise whatsoever. Originally released in 2003, the band's self-titled fourth effort would mark their final collaborative project with iconic producer Terry Date (until reuniting for 2020's Ohms), while notably eschewing much of the "nu-metal" residue that still clung to their sonic makeup. As soon as they kicked in their first song that day, I was hooked and convinced that this music will stand the test of time.
