Their earlier stuff is alternative metal or nu-metal, depending on who you believe. I shit you not that when I go to the page for White Pony on RYM, the first two reviews it shows me by people on my friends list are "I can't believe anybody thinks this is not nu-metal" and "I can't believe anybody thinks that this is nu-metal". I personally would consider them an alt metal band that flirted with nu-metal, taking its more redeeming qualities to create something with a bit of cred and respectability.

Now, Diamond Eyes in 2010 had a decent shoegaze influence and was more rock than metal, and might be worth your while checking out. The new album, Koi no Yokan, ramps the metal influence back up (though I see RYM reckons there's enough dream pop to count as a secondary genre; not sure I agree with that).

Speaking of Deftones, I see they're touring Australia in May with one of the better and more original new post-hardcore bands, Letlive. Hell the fuck yesssss.

It was that Dream Pop label that confused me so.

Diamond Eyes really had a fucking fantastic album cover. I don't know why I liked it so much. I was going to make it my avatar, but I felt silly using an album cover for an album I had never heard.

The Deftones are certainly a tough band to nail down in terms of genre. I'm not sure how I'd categorize them, and I listen to them a lot (they're my #15 band on last.fm). To make things even more confusing, I find that my favorite songs by them are not your typical Deftones fare: acoustic versions of their hits, b-sides, duets (with Cypress Hill, with Maynard James Keenan), covers, etc. Their cover of Sade's "No Ordinary Love" is a favorite of mine.

I wouldn't even know where to tell someone else to begin with the band. I bought White Pony a long time ago, but it wasn't until an ex-boyfriend made me a mix of them that I got so crazy about them. There's no one album of theirs I listen to more than the others, and I listen to the mix he made the most often.

All of this is to say, Deftones are worth checking out. The bands they're normally compared to or lumped together with can't hold a candle to them and the direction they've taken the fairly maligned nu-metal genre.

I know one song by The Early November and it's crazy good. I always meant to listen to an album and never have .

First time I've seen converge make one of these lists. I haven't listened to them since I was in college.

Not a shit list.

I mentally file your Fiona Apple jabs beside your Outkast jabs. In the shredder.

How about Rolling Stone's list?

If John Mayer really made a better album this year than Beach House, I might as well just stop listening to music now.
