Saturday Night Wrist is Deftones most experimental release I think. Not only does it contain the (controversial?) Track Pink Cellphone.

This album has some of deftones best songs on it. It feels like a culmination of everything they’ve done while simultaneously providing a new sound. What an album. Rats!rats!rats! And xerces are legit in my top 5 deftones songs. Pink cellphone got a few nervous laughs out of me. Oh god.
