We gave it a B+

Too many metal bands become muscle-bound with riffs. Not the Deftones. This Sacramento group isn’t afraid to put melody into its songs or make its chord changes catchy — all without losing its heaviness or edge. On White Pony, album No. 3, the long-respected band veers between sounding like a sweeter Korn and a more user-friendly Tool. Their brutality will burn its way into your memory banks. B+
