Title: ††† (EP)
Released: August 2011
Producer: Shaun Lopez
††† is a meandering, electronic-based side project of Deftones front-man Chino Moreno. Despite my love of Chino’s vocals, there isn’t enough interesting material on this EP to convince me that I should love all of his work. There are five tracks on this EP and each one tends to bleed together; Chino’s vocals are pleasant enough but they don’t seem to have any drive or purpose to them and as a result, none of the songs seem to get out of second gear.
These songs are perfectly fine if you’re looking for a soothing piece of background music, but beyond that there isn’t a great deal to get excited about. I’d put this EP in the ‘distinctly average’ category.
