A good friend of mine is constantly giving me compact discs that they’ve burned for themselves. Because of this, I was cleaning my apartment and unearthed an old copy of White Pony they had given to me. As any Deftones fan would expect, after listening to it, I was thoroughly blown away. It got me thinking about their discography and raised some curiosity in the process. What are your favorite Deftones albums? Here’s my two cents and I know that at LEAST one other AA staffer loves the band. Also, when was the last time you seriously sat down and looked at the album art for Saturday Night Wrist? Amazing! Get my two cents after the jump and don’t forget to complete the poll
