Best Deftones Albums

The Top Ten
1 White Pony White Pony Product Image

An absolute masterpiece. My favorite album of all time. This is true art in music form. Deftones were at their best as a band in the White Pony era.

Back to school- a very different Deftones song. It's got a lot more rap than normal and it's one of the heavier songs on the album.

Feiticeira- Abrasive and Has a cool drum part. Not much to say, it's a pretty run-of-the-mill Deftones song.

Digital Bath- I didn't like this song at first but I love it now that I've listened to the whole thing. It's very relaxing yet jammable as hell. Very original and ponderous. Chilling vocals and atmospheric melodies, this is one of their best songs.

Elite- One of the heavier songs on the album, elite is a rage-y song reminiscent of their early years. The guitar tone in this song is really cool and the screaming vocals are done well.

Rx Queen- A somewhat emotional tune, this is a very original song. The chorus is catchy and the lyrics are nothing less than what is to be ...more

While many consider it the best, and rightfully so, the songs on this album are so overplayed that they begin to get monotonous. There's a lot of songs on this album that I love, but there's an equal amount that I tend to skip over immediately.

DEFTONES sets themselves apart from all other metal bands during this era and stapled their brand of music to be the best among the rest! Definitely an instant classic...

Digital bath, Change, passenger, knife party, every song on this album is perfect

2 Around the Fur Around the Fur Product Image

This was definitely their heaviest album, and greatest. My Own Summer, Lhabia, Mascara, Around the Fur, Rickets, and Be Quiet and Drive are some of the best songs on the album. But overall, all the songs are great!

It's hard to choose between ATF and White Pony. White Pony has fantastc songs but ATF is much heavier than WP and some of the best songs Be Quiet, Rickets, Lotion and My Own Summer on this album. So I'd pick this one.

My favorite album by them is a hard choice between this and White Pony, but I'd say this is their best.

I think this should be ranked higher than adrenaline

3 Koi No Yokan Koi No Yokan Product Image

By far the most underrated albums. Swerve City, Leathers, Entombed, Tempest, Rosemary, and Goon Squad are some of the best Deftones Songs out there. Leathers is one of the hardest hitting songs Deftones has made in years and blows away anything on Gore. This album is outstanding.

Great album by far best produced deftones lp. Gauze, leathers, entombed, poltergeist, romantic dreams

I just like tempest, leathers, and rosemary together in one album

I just believe this band just can't make a bad album

4 Diamond Eyes Diamond Eyes Product Image

I have never understood why fans think this is such a good song... I always felt Diamond Eyes was a surprisingly dull FM-rock anthem for Tones' standards, and their worst album opener. Rocket Skates and The Butcher were so much better singles guitar-wise. But just my opinion of course!

Really good album. I wouldn't call it the best, but it's certainly up there. I'm happy that Deftones actively dispels the myth that a band's old material is automatically better than the new material.

Amazing album. I find myself listening to it more than any other. KNY is also great. Their only flaws are the weak opening tracks.

There's no song on this album that isn't perfect.

5 Deftones Deftones Product Image

The first album I got of them, and it's really good. I love the artwork and the way it fits the music

While I don't think it’s the best album Deftones made, I truly think it deserves higher.

This is a album that you need to listen to for awhile
The best song (to me) are Minerva and Deathblow which are rather slower deftones song are really really great
Overall this album is solid but not the best I think it should be 4, but that's my opinion

6 Adrenaline Adrenaline Product Image

Bored, 7 Words, Engine No. 9, Fireal. There are some pretty amazing Deftones tracks here.

7 Words, Engine No 9, Bored, Root, this is their best album by far

The more heavyest album from Deftones

7 Saturday Night Wrist Saturday Night Wrist Product Image

Saturday Night Wrist is definitely better than the albums ranked 3-6. There is maybe only one bad song on this album while almost every other consists of 2 or more not so great songs.

Please make this higher asap. I don't know why this album is here. This is their best album, along with Diamond Eyes. It needs more love. Awesomeness. That's all I can say.

This album is underrated. Should be at least Top 3. Songs like Hole in the Earth, Beware, and Cherry Wave show their unique sound.

What? This might not be their best but it has to be at the very least in the top 5, come on people

8 Gore Gore Product Image

1 Koi No Yokan
2 Diamond Eyes
3 Gore
Can't wait for what's next.
It's one of the few, few bands that I still listen and still enjoy from my highschool days.
They're in fact even better band today, I dare say.

The first time I heard this album, the first five tracks brought me back to all of the dreams I've had when I sleep. The songs have a unique and digitally impressive sound that is innovative and deeply atmospherical. Prayers/Triangles and Acid Hologram have such beauty converged into their sound. And overall this album deserves to be a new genre of it's own. Deftones has done impressively well ever since Adrenaline, and I reckon Gore defines their update or change or adaptation to the modern/soon-to-be era of alt/nu/metal. Gore deserves a much higher rank.

This album is way better than Koi No Yokan and Saturday Night Wrist. I mean come on. How can someone not enter an aesthetic, atmospherical trance when listening to Acid Hologram. I just can't understand why a lot of poeple hate Gore. It deserves way more credit for its experimentalism and atmospherical sounds.

This album is full of great songs. The only one I didn't really care for too much was the title track. Every other one I found absolutely stellar. My favorites would have to be Geometric Headdress, Hearts/Wires and Rubicon. In my opinion, it's their best album.

This is their best album that they have ever made! They take everything from their earlier albums and recent ones and mash them together to create this masterpiece! All the songs are so amazing and not a single one that I don’t like.
