Team Sleep Review

As Perfect Circle is to Tool, Team Sleep is to Deftones.

If you hate on this album.......

If you do indeed hate this album, then you must really just hate music. This record does something a lot of artists wish they could do 1.) experiment 2.) set a mood 3.) Layers melodies 4.) Shows that a drummer doesn't just keep a beat 5.) puts a DJ to good use 6.) puts guest appearences to good use 7.) Seperates you from the world when you listen to it.
Look for these guy's next album guaranteed to blow this one out of the water.

Take the song "Teenager" from Deftone's White Pony album. Now imagine 15 tracks with that sound. That is Team Sleep. In a way, the album makes me think of Deftones meets Bright Eyes (Digital Ash) meets Smashing Pumpkins (Adore) but with more of the White Pony feel. I have always thought Chino was great at bringing his voice from screaming to mellow, but we don't hear the latter enough. I have been waiting for Chino to bring this type of sound to an album for a long time now. I definately recomend it.

About Team Sleep

After the success of the Deftones' third album, The White Pony, singer Chino Moreno announced his intentions to tackle a new project and take time off from his band. This project ended up becoming Team Sleep, a band made up of vocalist Moreno, turntablist DJ Crook, and guitarist Todd Wilkinson. Wilkinson was a childhood friend of Moreno's, and in fact had never played on an album before. The group tried to blend the moody heaviness of Moreno's other group with the heady beats of Massive Attack. They entered the studio toward the tail-end of 2001, working with producer Terry Date on their debut. Guest musicians such as ex-Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur, Helium singer Mary Timony, Mr. Bungle/Faith No More frontman Mike Patton, and several Deftones members also contributed to the album. The band took the music to the road during the recording, attempting to flesh out their sound and gain some road experience with each other. Their self-titled debut finally arrived in spring 2005. In 2014, after an extended hiatus, Moreno announced that Team Sleep had reunited to work on a follow-up to their debut. Recorded at Applehead Recording studio in Woodstock, New York, Team Sleep's as-yet-untitled sophomore album was tentatively slated for release in 2015. ~ Bradley Torreano
