  • The Deftones have always been known for walking a tightrope of extremes, from crunchy guitar riffing to gentle, melodically fleshed-out chords, with vocals ranging from a breathy hush to devilish bellowing, and some occasional hip-hop phrasing for good measure. With WHITE PONY, Deftones mastermind and vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno has brought the band to full gallop.
  • Somewhat inspired by the game show, "Feiticeira" recounts a chilling abduction from the first person perspective, while "Digital Bath" features moody verses and brutal choruses. "Elite" uses a vocal approach usually reserved for death metal bands while "Rx Queen" is morbidly romantic. "Teenager" celebrates the purity of adolescence and "Passenger" showcases a vocal duel between Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan who co-wrote the track. Deftly produced by the band and metal producing veteran Terry Date, WHITE PONY is far from a sideshow; it's the main event.

Pitchfork (Website) - "[F]ully embracing newfound decadence as an escape from misery, the high life always the solution rather than the problem. The hook on 'Digital Bath' succinctly expresses White Pony's spiritual ethos: 'I feel like more.'"
