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.

Maryiln Manson - Born Villain

A cracking return to form from the most mainstream alt metal man around.

Nice and dirty and crunchy.

How does this compare to current rock fare?

It's the difference between the first Saw film and Scream - gritty and dirty. Seems fresh and definitely a return to form.

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.

Enjoy.
