Best Deftones Albums

The Top Ten

1 White Pony White Pony

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.

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

Listen to poltergeist gauze and goon squad then try and pick a album better than this - IaMayMrFire

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

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

Even better than white pony

3 Around the Fur Around the Fur

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!

I think this should be ranked higher than adrenaline - Imreallyboredrightnow

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.

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

Every Song on this Album is perfect.

6 Deftones Deftones

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

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

7 Saturday Night Wrist Saturday Night Wrist

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.

Come on. The tones at their most experimental.

Beware is the best title on this album

8 Gore Gore

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.

Very great album. Songs like Prayers/Triangles and Acid Hologram are very amazing. Check it out!
