The long-awaited follow-up to 2003Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Deftones is deceptively tuneful and alarmingly heavy, see-sawing between melancholy reflection and jaw-clenching frustration like a manic depressive refusing his meds. Saturday Night Wrist incorporates disparate elements of hard rock, heavy metal, punk, classic, alternative and electronic music within its tumultuous grooves. The band also incorporates enough cohesion between the mortar blasts to keep the music cohesive and unified.
Overall, Saturday Night Wrist is experimental and innovative, it overflows with undeniable hooks, which serve as reminders that first and foremost, Deftones will always be about strong, emotionally resonant songs. TodayÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Deftones have emerged stronger, smarter and more excited as a result of their experience. The end result of that is Saturday Night Wrist.
