I'm still baffled as to how the Deftones have managed to stay relevant all the way into 2011 while most of their peers have gone the way of the dollar bin—especially considering how the band's formula has hardly budged over the last decade-plus. It's been an interesting few years for the Sacto band. Their bassist Chi Chang continues to lie bedridden after a car accident left him in a coma in 2008. The tragedy led to the band shelving their Eros album and instead recording Diamond Eyes, a record met with an inexplicably glowing reception. What leaves me really scratching my head is the fact that the Deftones—in 20-goddamn-11—are selling out dates all over the country... including one of their two nights at the Crystal Ballroom. As much as I'm tempted to listen to Diamond Eyes to see what the fuss is all about, I think I'm going to instead put on Around the Fur (their best), close my eyes, and pretend it's 19-goddamn-97 again.
