Slap some Kora on too if Fat Freddy's ya jam
Thanks. I'm also into Duke Ellington big time. Recently picked up a CD by Mammal Hands, which I quite like.
Classics are my thing, too. I especially like Handel and Purcell.
Have a nice sound system, with vacuum tube front end and massive Mosfet amp to push the speakers right down to their full 32hz. Makes Fat Freddy sing, and brings out the full floor shaking bass of London Grammar's "Hey Now".

I'm 71, and still have pretty good hearing. Always interested in new music.

Often the way. I volunteer at our local station, 2BACR - I'll check out that album from their music access system.

No Deftones fans to share my joy. Sad face :(
I'm here mate. I've been on the forum for 5 months and I just discovered "The Lounge" LOL
Ohm is a pretty good album - not as good as White Pony but still a decent album
One of my favourite bands - it's sad that most people haven't heard of them yet everyone knows who friggin Justin Beiber is

Maybe when you consider other popular trends these days, the lack of popularity is actually a badge of honour!

I find it hard to pick a favourite album if theres. I really love Around the Fur and Koi No Yokan and White Long is obviously a classic. Ohms is great in its own right though. I like thst they have never tried to make white pony 2 (unless you count the upcoming remix album.) The best hands avoid repeating themselves and keep it interesting.

Yep that's one of the criticisms of the band (and most bands) that they're always trying to change their sound and it usually pisses off their original fans (like Incubus and Avenged Sevenfold) but for me the Deftones pull it off.

Yeah, I’ve never been much of an avenged sevenfold fan, but I think incubus just became too commercial. I haven’t listened to any of their recent stuff, but I think they went downhill after S.C.I.E.N.C.E.
Deftones changes have always been about artistic choices, I think. They have never been about trying to get on the radio.

I like Deftones back in the day.
I'll check out their new stuff I've been missing out on.

To people trying to diss the Deftones.
They are a musical band who are actually artistic and have talent!


Unlike the majority of shit people are listening to now.
Not one Deftones song has ever made my ears bleed!

Most of the shit people listen to now and consider music not only makes my ears bleed but also feels like it kills brain cells!
I don't know how many times I've watched a modern music video and asked myself "is this a rap video or the build up of a scene in a pornographic movie?"
