My favorite tune: Entombed

More textured than their previous monochromatic ‘Diamond Eyes’, ‘Koi No Yokan’ is Deftones‘ seventh studio album, and they have been around for seventeen years, basically never altered their trademark sound. But what exactly is keeping their new materials from becoming old, boring, and repetitive? Their main secret is: elusiveness. Deftones songs are always a constant switch around between hardness and softness, between shouts and whispers. And they’re so very masterful in teasing and tossing their listeners on that grey area somewhere between.

My Rating: 8/10
