    I agree I like the rough sound and to whoever said it's "boring", were you expecting heavier or what? I think it was a good song to release for the occasion. There's a good wall of sound if you listen with headphones. Still not sure if the vocals are newer or original, but either way I really like the song. Hope 'Eros' gets slowly let out song by song now.

    I only like a few songs by Deftones (Hole in the Earth, Xerces, Change, Entombed), but Smile gets me kind of excited to see what will be on Eros.

    Sounds perfect to me. Way better then most songs on SNW imo. I thought Eros was going to be a heavy-as-fuck record though.

    No. They were going experimental on this album.

    Can't wait to hear the finished product.

    But, then, I think that you only feel this way because it's new.

    SNW is awesome.

    Deal with it.

    This song reminds me a lot of Saturday Night Wrist. Deftones are one of my favorite bands and this song fits in with that era perfectly. Hole In The Earth, Beware, etc. I remember when the Eros sessions were being posted on the band's blog. I hope they end up releasing the full album soon because this song is great!

    I think that "Saturday Night Wrist" is fantastic ... except for "Mein", which I'm not a big fan of.

    Agreed! "Mein" doesn't fit imo. In fact, my SNW playlist excludes both "Mein" and "Pink Cellphone." They both ruin the flow of the album to me. It is perfect without them.

    I also exclude "Lucky You" from my S/T Deftones album playlist.

    Intrigued. Gotta go through the rest of the catalogue, I only know White Pony and Diamond Eyes.

    This is exactly where I stand as well - I'm familiar with White Pony and Diamond Eyes, but haven't taken the time to listen to the rest of their stuff.
    Seems like a great time, though!

    Their latest record, Koi no yokan, is still my favorite, so I kinda hope, they stick with that direction.

    I kind of have a hard time differentiating between "Diamond Eyes" and "Koi No Yokan" stylistically. To me, the band went in the same "direction" for both of them

    I guess "Koi No" has more expansive-sounding textures and a little more keyboard, but that's really it.

    I think Koi No Yokan might be their best too. It's pretty much Diamond Eyes with some spacier compositions, but the songwriting is so on point. I like how they took a more back-to-basics approach with the last two albums after a long stretch of experimentation.

    Supposed to sound like Morrissey and Jerry Cantrell is making a guest appearance. More information later.

    Listening to Smile again for the first time in a while, I still love this song.
