More Info:

'Diamond Eyes' works the way good records used to; each song carries you a little further away from your bad day until finally, you've been transported to a place that feels a whole lot better than where you started. There's also a newfound sense of purpose that makes Deftones' sixth album stand out.

Reviews:

''Diamond Eyes'' is the sixth album by American rock band Deftones, released worldwide on May 4, 2010 through Warner Bros. and Reprise Records. An album tentatively titled ''Eros'' was originally intended to be their sixth full-length release and follow up to ''Saturday Night Wrist'' (2006), but was not released due to bassist Chi Cheng entering a coma after a serious car accident that occurred in November 2008. The release of ''Eros'' was put on hold in favor of ''Diamond Eyes'' in June 2009. Former Quicksand bass player, Sergio Vega is featured on the album in substitution for Cheng.

''Diamond Eyes'' was a critical and commercial success; obtaining a normalized score of 78 on review aggregator Metacritic, while achieving top 20 chartings on the ''Billboard'' 200, UK Albums Chart, and German Albums Chart. - Wikipedia

'Diamond Eyes' works the way good records used to; each song carries you a little further away from your bad day until finally, you've been transported to a place that feels a whole lot better than where you started. There's also a newfound sense of purpose that makes Deftones' sixth album stand out. The band recorded the album after their best friend and bassist Chi Cheng sustained a debilitating brain injury from a car accident in November of 2008. The tangle of Stephen Carpenter's woozy, undulating guitar work and Moreno's soaring then secretive vocal style is the bittersweet dynamic behind each of Deftones' records, including 'Diamond Eyes.' The friction drives the music as much as it does the players, though it doesn't always make life easy for childhood friends Carpenter and Moreno. 'What makes us work?' asks Carpenter. 'Chino will give you the exact opposite answer that I do. That's the way it is with us-we contradict each other constantly but it's also what makes our music what it is-intense and different.'
