Deftones ‘Romantic Dreams’ – Crank It or Yank It
With the first installment of 'Crank It or Yank It' I figured I would come out with all guns blazing and see what you thought of the new Deftones track, 'Romantic Dreams'.
I say 'all guns blazing' because Deftones are one of the most popular bands we play here on the Buzz therefore, a passionate response to anything from the band is to be expected.
'Romantic Dreams' is the second song on the band's latest masterpiece, Koi No Yokan, and the third radio single from the album. Like most of what I've heard from Deftones since their 2003 self-titled album, the track is a slow-paced atmospheric tune best enjoyed within the context of the full album, versus as a stand alone track. That doesn't mean that I think it's a bad choice for a single, it's just that it's obvious to me that Deftones write entire albums and spend little to no time worrying about whether or not a song is a hit.
Listen to the track in the player below and tell us whether we should crank it or yank it.
