Diamond Eyes - Reprise
FILTER Grade: 84%

By Jonathan Falcone on May 21, 2010



The Deftones are pioneers for their slant on heavy-meets-euphoric-meets-slow-meets-beautiful, and they’ve been successful in the ability to surprise. Thus, Diamond Eyes does not disappoint when it comes to strong, powerful and unexpected material. The eponymous opening track contains one of the most striking choruses from the band to date and the rest of the album carries on in the same vein. For a band that can be hard to pin down, knot-tough guitars and soaring refrains strike the perfect balance. JONATHAN FALCONE
