True mumblings, from a junior doctor...

Deftones - Koi No Yokan

It's fab. Classic, heavy, lingering and ethereal. Shouldn't be possible, but they've managed to make an album that both salutes their past and their fallen comrades but also pushes on further and expands on the template. Not formulaically thrashing through the gears, this is an album designed for repeat listening. It sucks you in, and makes you think of dark autumn nights. It will destroy the venues during gigs.

Deftones - Diamond Eyes

Even without their severely injured bassist Chi Cheng Deftones have returned with a stonking album.

This is almost a culmination of their art - marrying the ferocity of Adrenaline and Around The Fur with the more experimental and electronic White Pony and Saturday Night Wrist.

All of the songs are beautiful in their layered texture and aching vocals. This cannot easily be expressed in words. It is Deftones to the max.
