    Yeah it's about a year and a half old but I've just rediscovered this gem. I listened to it briefly when it came out and stowed it away, but the other day I broke it out and must say I think it's their best work. Very mature and really catchy melodies and harmonies with all the experimentation. If you'd like something a little different, check it out.

    I used to hate this band when I was younger, probably because they were the biggest trainwreck I've ever seen live...

    But nowadays I quite like some of their stuff and I have to say "SNW" sounds way to safe, uninspired and polished compared to "White Pony" and especially "Around The Fur". I don't know if I could be bothered to give it a second chance...

    I like it as a rock record, not a metal one. White Pony, while a great album, just doesn't measure up to me. Knife Party is fucking awesome though.

    I've always been pre-judgemental towards them... probably because they play modern metal and they are one of the biggest bands in metal... But then mr.shapeless recommended SNW to me, and i listened and i loved it. THE END.

    Around the Fur & White Pony are awesome. White Pony had a good mix of melodic and aggression. Maynard Keenan did a duet on that CD as well.


    I need to play Passanger now :) great song

    yeah I like ATF, WP and the self titled, but this album bored me. More of the same.

    You know what this album reminds me of? A perfect cross between Catherine Wheel and Dredg.

    I really, really, REALLY like the song "Combat". It's got that Around the Fur groove to it but with really catchy hooks and melodies. Kimdracula, Xerces, and Cherry Waves are really good songs too.

    Huge deftones fan.. love the air they create.

    Their bassist was in an accident in november or somthing, and he's still in a coma. Chi cheng is his name.

    Man after I realized that I started listening to Happy Days by Catherine Wheel...SERIOUSLY underrated band/album. This album was their more grunge-y albums. I remember this song when I was like a senior in high school or something...
