    Head on over to Soundcloud to hear Deftones new song Diamond Eyes from the upcoming album "Diamond Eyes".

    I'm really liking this song too.

    its leaked and i've listened to it a few times so far. it's a great album, one of their best, but i've always found it hard to rank the deftones albums because they're all good. this albums production and sound are amazing. Despite not being able to rank their albums, we can all agree Diamond Eyes far surpasses Saturday Night Wrist.

    You can, infact, rank their albums. And, no, it is not better than Saturday Night Wrist, I'm sorry to inform you.

    Because your opinion ranks above everyone elses, right?

    Good album.

    Prince sounds very similar to RX Queen.

    Yes it is.


    It's a pretty solid album, Diamond Eyes and Prince are my favourite songs at the moment.

    I'm really digging the album. Prince, Royal, You've Seen the Butcher -- there are a lot of good songs on it.

    As far as ranking Deftones albums goes (as of right now, obviously):

    Around the Fur > White Pony > Saturday Night Wrist > Diamond Eyes > Deftones > Adrenaline

    Oh yes, I put Adrenaline last. Be mad.

    No sir. Having been an avid fan of the Tones since 97 I think that while SNW was an awesome album, Diamond Eyes is far superior.

    DE is their best album to date. Bar none.

    Great album, probably tied with White Pony in my rating though

    Same.

    Diamond Eyes = White Pony > Deftones > Saturday Night Wrist > Around the Fur > Adrenaline

    That's right, I don't really like the early stuff as much.

    You can in fact rank their albums. Only problem is that everyone's rankings seem to be different.

    White Pony > Saturday Night Wrist > Diamond Eyes > Deftones > Around the Fur > Adrenaline

    I just bought the new album, but I don't think I'll have time to listen to it tonight. :3 Based on what I've heard about it, both from the band and from fans who've heard it, I expect it to at least be on par with "White Pony"; seems it'll resemble that album most. :)

    I've always been more of a "Saturday Night Wrist" fan 'cause that's the album I'm most familiar with. I only started listening to Deftones in, like, 2005, and that album made me a fully-fledged Deftones fan. :x I like an equal amount of songs from each of the albums, I think, so I don't know how I'd rank them.

    Oh, well, I know I don't like "Adrenaline" the least. :x So there's that.

    EDIT: Alright, first listen's done;

    This album beats out "Saturday Night Wrist" and the self-titled, definitely. And it's at least on par with "White Pony". :) My favourite tracks are "Prince" and "Beauty School", but I think all the songs are great. Like, I'd put "You've Seen The Butcher" right up there with "Digital Bath" and "Change (In The House Of Flies)" as, like, a classic from Deftones.

    I believe I heard this on the radio the other day at the gym. Not entirely sure though. Either way...can't wait to listen to the album in it's entirety.
