Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he lyrics go for cathartic images set to chopping riffage, whirlpool distortion and dark, soaring melodies..."
Spin - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Blissed-out and surreal, featuring queasy slides between loud and soft, it's a work of patient design and bloody fantasy. Brutal beauty abounds..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "The first third feels like primal-scream therapy, with frontman Chino Moreno howling himself even rawer than usual." -- Grade: B
Alternative Press (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Here, the lighter elements seem more optimistic and anthemic than ever, while the darker sentiments seem even more opaque."
Alternative Press (p.100) - Ranked #6 in Alternative Press's "10 Essential Albums of 2010" -- "Deftones sculpted DIAMOND EYES out of the frustration and anger they were experiencing -- and we're all better for it."
Billboard (p.37) - "The set is full of the Deftones' usual energy and showcases singer Chino Moreno's knack for alternating between screams and sweet vocal delivery over heavy, complex guitar work."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.50) - "DIAMOND EYES is a remarkable achievement and an instant Deftones classic. IT's a sexual, sinewy beast, full of throttle, thrust and murderous menace..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he most satisfying Deftones album in a decade, welding their patented post-hardcore crunch with their noted love of twisted, Cure-styled melody."

A long four years separate Diamond Eyes from Saturday Night Wrist, four years that were sadly packed with peril for Deftones. Bassist Chi Cheng suffered injuries so severe in a November 2008 auto accident the band took a hiatus, eventually honoring prior touring commitments by hiring Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega, and eventually cutting a full album with him on board and scrapping a near-completed album in the process. Given this serious trauma, it's only logical that Diamond Eyes functioned as musical therapy for Deftones, but the surprise is that it has little downcast lyrical angst-mining, preferring atmosphere to bloodletting. Naturally, there is quite a bit of roiling darkness here -- they're Cure-loving metalheads, it's in their blood -- but there's shade and light, control of texture, with the band deepening rather than expanding. Above all, it's a mature album: Deftones skirted the obvious response to their tragedy, realizing that the left turn is a more rewarding journey. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
