Slowdive - Souvlaki
100
Slowdive Discography Dive-In: 2/5
Album: Souvlaki (1993)
Genre: Dream Pop / Shoegaze

I guess "Souvlaki" needs no introduction at all, everyone from hardcore shoegazers to the shoegaze newcomers know how Slowdive's sophomore is an essential record, even out of the said genre. "Souvlaki" manages to be both a beautiful and melancholic project, full of passionate and resonating lyrics mostly written by Neil, that combined with these heavenly dense sounds and some ... read more

Deftones Discography Dive-In: 4/9
Album: Deftones (2003)
Genre: Alternative Metal

After what is arguably your most critically and commercially successful album in your career so far, how do follow it up? Do you make a left turn in your sound & image or you do release a follow up in a similar vein to what made you blow up? Well, Deftones decided to increase the heaviness to eleven with their self-titled and dive even further with the "trip-hop" and "shoegaze" ... read more

Slowdive Discography Dive-In: 1/5
Album: Just for a Day (1991)
Genre: Dream Pop / Shoegaze

If you're just getting into the shoegaze music scene, you'll probably come across the so called "Big 3 of Shoegaze": "My Bloody Valentine" for their landmarking record "Loveless" that set the scene for the artist to come; "Ride" with "Nowhere" for their early stab at such complex yet beautiful genre; and for last but not least "Slowdive" with ... read more

Deftones - White Pony

Deftones Discography Dive-In: 3/9
Album: White Poney (2000)
Genre: Alternative Metal

Where do I even being with this juggernaut? Not only "White Pony" is Deftones' magnum opus and a quintessential metal record, but "White Poney" also served for Deftones to break out of the "nu-metal" label that they were pigeonholed into. Chino and gang here really amplify their musical scope by introducing more elements of trip-hop (Teenager), shoegaze (Digital Bath), industrial ... read more

Deftones Discography Dive-In: 2/9
Album: Around The Fur (1997)
Genre: Nu-Metal

After their "Adrenaline" debut, Deftones decides to take the "Nu-Metal" formula and improve it, by blending together the best parts of it with more melodic and hardcore elements, with the outcome being a more memorable and hard hitting experience.

Although Terry Date produced both "Adrenaline" & "Around The Fur", his production here is a lot more clearer and less muddy, ... read more
