Around the Fur Reviews

Reviewer :  level 12   65/100
Date : 
Around the Fur is hailed as the first truly great Nu Metal album and considered one of (if not the best) in the genre. It was also Deftones’ breakthrough success, and a telling sign of the Metal trend in the late 90’s.

To me, it’s a really plain Nu/Alternative Metal album. Honestly, the production is probably the best part of this, the guitars having a fantastic tone and a perfect amount of reverb and effect on them to create a strong wave of slightly dissonant chords. The music though, is really average. There aren’t many riffs, progressions or leads that stand out, as the best part of the guitars are when they’re used more atmospheric like in “Be Quiet and Drive.” The rhythm section is quite standard, never doing anything too fast or complex. The vocals are at least unique, and I can see an appeal to them, but they don’t do a whole lot for me personally; the lyrics are similarly boring and border on cryptic. For a genre that excels at self-expression, there’s just not a lot of that here, and it hurts the whole thing. Nu Metal should either be full of catchy charisma or painfully emotional vulnerability, and this release doesn’t pack either one.

It’s the same quality as their debut for me. Average Nu Metal. Not bad, but nothing special.

hudba je celkom v pohode, ale ten falošný spev je otrasný. Bez melódie, akoby zaspatý a mimo rytmu. Deftones poznám už roky a ich spev neviem doteraz oceniť.

I was already a big fan of their song 7 Words, and when Around the Fur was released I learned for sure that this was a great band. That's when the video for My Own Summer debuted on 120 Minutes.

해비하면서 몽환적인 느낌의 앨범이다 라디오헤드가 메탈을 하면 이런 느낌이 나지 않을까 생각이 든다 추천트랙은 1,4,6

무거움과 통제된 듯한 기분은 데프톤즈만의 매력이라고 생각한다.

닮도록 들은 명반, 헤비함과 소프트함, 긴박함과 루즈함 모두 담고 있는 명반, 커버까지 인상깊다

데프톤즈 최고의 명반이라고 생각한다. 2,4,6번 트랙이 죽여준다. 허나 커버 때문에 5점 깎는다.

헤비함은 연주력에서만 나오는 것이 아니다
