  • This is the first cd that I ever purchased when I got my first job(with my own money that is), and I believe that there is no other album on which my money would’ve been better spent. The deftones single-handedly changed the way I listen to music, and continue to do so to this day. With that being said, I really do believe this is their finest work. Some would say that white pony is their best, and all of the big three (adrenaline, around the fur, white pony) are absolutely amazing in different ways. Adrenaline has raw, somewhat unfocused power (that a debuting badn should have). Around the fur is more focused, and the album just flows a little bit better than adrenaline. White pony is easily their most experimental work (coincidentally their best selling also), but still doesn’t fail to have the trademark deftones “feel” (and if you listen to the deftones, you know what I’m talking about). Around the fur just stands above the other two to me just by having songs that stick out more in my head. The entire album is phenomenal, and I honestly don’t think it has a bad track or “filler”. Some are stronger than others of course. My favorites are Dai the flu, damone, lhabia, my own summer, and lotion. Can’t wait for their new album! (supposedly due out this fall)
