It's weird I havent listened to tool in a long time....then they gave us new dell's at work with DVD drives, so i burned a data DVD of like 1200 songs, and I've been just stuck listening to the tool albums over and over  :wink:





my fav line of the moment

"Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones.
Fuck all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes"

Post by: DEFinMASS on Oct 19, 2005, 03:02 AM
I can`t wait for the new Tool album. Rumor is...its supposed to pick up from where Lateralus left off. I didn`t get to see Tool until 97....wish I had one chance to see them during the Undertow era....mohawk.

I met Maynard and Adam in Boston back in 97. Adam was so cool,Maynard was just analyzing people. In Montreal 8/00, I got to meet Maynard once more and Troy that was on the first APC album. Maynard was very talkative after I mentioned about meeting him and Adam in 97.

I respect Tool more than A Perfect Circle, but I've listen to Perfect Circle waayyyyy more than Tool. 13th Step is my favorite.

I'm not much of a Tool fan, but I do love Lateralus.

Tool probably has the biggest following of any band of our time. i'll say it again...there is no band (outside black sabbath) that Tool would open for

easily one of my 3 favorite bands

I haven't listened to Tool in a while but few years ago I was so deep into interpreting the lyrics and artwork that they started to change my way of thinking. Tool is probably still my favorite band and Third Eye my favorite song.

But fav. line comes from Lateralus (which is probably the second best song): "Ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been"
Title: tool
Post by: Chrisbo on Oct 19, 2005, 12:32 PM
Is there anything I could say that would add to what's already been said? Ah well, I think they're awesome, one of my favourite bands ever. Ćnima is definitely my favourite album, it's just amazing. my favourite Tool songs are H, Eulogy and The Patient. Absolutely stunning!

I don't think thats true. I think its a rumor which stemmed from something someone posted on the official Peach/Suns of the Tundra website (http://www.infopeach.co.uk/news.htm)

"and much excitement with the new TOOL live album just round the corner, while the boys are finally laying some tracks for the sequel to LATERALUS now ..."

Post by: Moz La Punk on Oct 21, 2005, 10:45 PM
Ofcourse I love em, Ive told so many times on this board why though, im a little tired of telling it.

Well, basically what I love about Tool is that they take the time to expand a song. To slowly build it up to a climax like the big scream in The Grudge or the last part in Hooker With A Penis.

They just make kick ass songs and when you're stoned it's even better.

Well, while I think the bashing was inappropiate (but also more of a joke), it was because you were asking for something that's so widespread on bittorrent etc, so easy to get hold on. THAT'S why people bashed you, I hope you realise that. Not because it was Tool.

But they have not sed anything about a live cd(as I know) but a Live DVD from the Lateralus tour. The DVD will come out in early 2006 and right after that the new album will come out, and it will NOT be a dobbel album..

"He had alot to say. He had alot of nothing to say. We'll miss him. So long. We wish you well. You told us how you weren't afraid to die. Well then, so long. Don't cry. Or feel too down. Not all martyrs see divinity. But at least you tried. Standing above the crowd he had a voice that was strong and loud. We'll miss him. Ranting and pointing his finger at everything but his heart. We'll miss him. No way to recall what it was that you had said to me, Like I care at all. So loud. You sure could yell. You took a stand on every little thing and so loud. Standing above the crowd, he had a voice so strong and loud and I swallowed his façade cuz I'm so eager to identify with someone above the ground, someone who seemed to feel the same, someone prepared to lead the way, with someone who would die for me. Will you? Will you now? Would you die for me? Don't you fuckin' lie. Don't you step out of line. Don't you fuckin lie. You've claimed all this time that you would die for me. Why then are you so surprised to hear your own eulogy? You had alot to say. You had alot of nothing to say. Come down. Get off your fuckin cross. We need the fuckin space to nail the next fool martyr. To ascend you must die. You must be crucified for your sins and your lies. Goodbye... " brilliant fucking lyrics, i love trying to figure out what their songs mean, to me anyway.

also , i dont find tool one bit pretentious... with a T , i dont think pretentious is spelled with a C... unless its a different word?

No, anyone who knows me knows I am a sexualist, it's just that, like others said, he's an asshole, and he's a good singer, but I don't think he has the greatest following of our generation, haha. Not exactly, no.

I agree. It seems as if they think they're such a big force in music or art or whatever that they forget that it's the fans who get them where they are. If it wasn't for us they'd be fucking nobodies.

^Salival. Includes all the Opiate, Undertow, and Aenima videos. It was released between the expanse between Aenima and Lateralus. And it has a CD with couple live tracks, including Third Eye, Part of Me, and an amazing version of Pushit, as well as some covers and other unreleased tracks. But it's out of print and rare now.

So yeah these 2 new dvds should have some interesting extras to make us all want to buy them.

so did anybody ever get those tool dvds?




 the parabola one has the parabol/parabola video, it also has the video with "dual" commentaries by jello biafra (from dead kennedys) it also has a remix of the songs by lustmord, the word remix is pushing it though, more of a re-arrangement.

the schism one has the video including mantra. it has "DUAL" commentaries by david yow (jesus lizard) which is better heard one earphone at a time. it includes a remix of schism.

buy it, it has great packaging, and its a collectors must. theres a sticker on the plastic covering of the dvd that says look for new tool spring 06. if you don't like it write tool at 11271 ventura blvd #505 Studio City, CA 91604.

 TOOL PROMO TOUR

As it now stands, in a few weeks (mid-February) the members of the band (except for Adam) and their manager will be traveling to parts of Europe, England, Japan and Australia on a bit of a promo tour, meaning that they will be meeting with record company people and doing various interviews with the press in order to promote their new record and upcoming tours. Although any press releases are usually timed to coincide with the release of the record, there will undoubtedly be leaks, so those of you who scour the internet should be on the lookout around this time. As the others field questions and deal with promo issues abroad, Adam will remain in Los Angeles to direct the new Tool video.


   :D The album is getting close, I can feel it. From what I've gathered from the newsletter on toolband.com, it sounds like the new album will be released sometime in April.

  Love,

I was just reading this months newsletter and Blair actually had a good idea haha

"I'm guessing that the most enthusiastic Tool fans have probably heard all of the band's previously released material, but when the new record comes out in May, these people should try to constrain themselves from listening to the entire CD in one sitting. Save a couple of tracks (or, say, just track #2) for a month, or a couple of months, or for a year, or a couple of years, and then while everyone's itching for new material, YOU HAVE SOME!,. and now it's only a matter of year or so before the next release! Anyway, that's just an idea those of you who get really impatient might want to consider."

I think I'll do that, just not listen to a particular track or two until much later. I'll probably end up cracking but its worth trying.

I think it makes sense too... I mean, I could never wait more than like a month before listening to all songs. but for me it's often like that with albums I download. I listen to all songs or most songs and immediately find favorites. then I'll just listen to those songs for a really long time until I give other songs a chance. which often results in new favorite songs later on. it's not always like that, but a lot of the time it is.

here is a report from the prelistening sesson in london:

Quote
The TOOL Story Marches On

From Andy King, TotalRock… New Album playback at 10, Golborne Road, London W10 - February 20th 2006... 4pm and 7.30pm

There is something delightfully Toolian about staging a series of European album press/radio playback and ‘meet-the-new-Record-Company’ dates whilst not only not revealing the name of said new album but also keeping all the track titles themselves firmly under wraps.

For your roving Tool reporter, this presents two particular difficulties – firstly it makes accurate reviewing a task almost as hazardous as Quail shooting whilst under the influence (perish the thought that anyone could even contemplate such foolishness) and secondly it prompts momentary, and forgivable, cynicism along the lines of ‘They’re ‘avin’ a larff! This is just an elaborate, fake decoy album!’. Oh shit, there I go with those hunting expressions again.

Today (and I use the word entirely accurately - as my Tool obsession squirts into me such blind courage as to prompt me to lurk, contrary to Record Company wishes, in the shadows for 90 minutes - so as to catch both the 4pm and 7.30pm playbacks) - today, the Record Company has displayed a remarkable degree of Tool-savvy by booking an unheard of pub-for-bohemians in West London’s debatably fashionable and trendy (or downright dangerous – unless, like me, you have at least two layers of hoodies on top of your baseball hat) W10 area. 10, Golbourne Road is at the foot of one of London’s once most notorious and scary tower blocks – Erno Goldfinger’s (not to mention The Clash’s) Trellick Tower – now perversely, and miraculously, transmogrified into one of the City’s most desirable residences. It sez ‘ere.

It’s a joy – in this day and age and with such a multi-million selling global mega-band (yes, it really is true, fans!) – to immediately bump into ľ of the band casually swigging beer from bottles (or, somewhat surprisingly, Starbucks from a paper cup in Maynard’s case) and chatting amiably with the assembled mid-afternoon gathering of hacks. It’s always a joy to meet a man so much ‘his own man’ and Maynard, as usual, manages to take such an expression to dizzy new heights. As inscrutable as the bastard offspring of Chairman Mao and Wallace & Gromit’s Were Rabbit (slightly caught in the headlights of my immediate and presumptuous ‘hail fellow well met’ self-introduction) Maynard professes to ‘feeling a little jet-lagged’ and at once hops off to safer environs. Meanwhile big haired Danny and Justin look, for all the world, like a brace of goddamn hippies from the Bong Shop down the road. As has been revealed – Adam has remained in LA ‘directing the video’.

After a 30 minute delay in proceedings – caused by a tardy and self-important bunch of hacks creeping out of some rank corner of the evil EMAP Empire (they’re all Borgs, we suspect) the Anonymous Playback of The Nameless Songs commences… ‘probably nearly in their Final Running Order’, we are told. Readers will, hopefully, forgive any inaccuracies in reportage. On first listen I surmised this was an 9 track album, managing to squeeze this figure up to 10 on second hearing, whilst having confirmation from the band that it was, in fact an 11 track album. (They thought).

Queens Of The Stone Age, The Melvins, Turbonegro, Satyricon, Weezer and Hole. Hmmm... Joe Baresi’s CV might not be an immediate one to catch the attention whilst puzzling over a new Producer for a band such as our heroes. But then, Tool never have been noted for the obvious, the easier, softer way. The band dynamic IS different on this work. But it’s a challenging difference – perhaps no great surprise for a band which often borders on the recalcitrant. As might have been expected from a ‘guitar-oriented’ knob twiddler– the guitars are very much to the fore. Perhaps more so than on any work since Opiate. And there are other notables – but more of those later. What we have here with The Album With No Name (rather a good title, boys… why not go for it? Surely it’s not too late?) is yet another milestone in the journey of one of the most innovative of rock bands of the last 30 years. It’s a Rollercoaster. It’s difficult (‘Hurrah!’ I hear you yell!). It’s at points dense, frustrating and impenetrable (‘Wahaay!’). On occasion it provides the band’s most commercial work to date. At worst, it heavily borrows hooks and snippets from, mainly, the Lateralus album. At best, it’s soaring and stunning and staggering – an exercise in aural, no sensory, exploration. In short, it’s the new Tool album and it’s f@!# great…

Track 1 (7min 3sec). Mesmeric start. Hypnotic beat. Jagged, angular off beats. Familiar trancey passages punctuated by a guitar part reminiscent of an older Tool track. Tribal drum beats f@!# with a lovely melody and climax with Maynard’s vocals. I am going to cry.

Track 2 (7min 12sec) Melodic intro with almost balladic vocals from Maynard. Lighter feel (almost, dare I say it, APC-tinged) but not for long. Danny gets stronger – Baresi releases our tubthumper and the feel gets much heavier into ‘chugga chugga’ off beats. Then – here’s some unusual guitar work. Man, it’s almost Hendix-like! Then back into a heavy tribal groove. I fight off the urge to masturbate furiously.

Track 3/4 (This is either one 17 minute monster or two tracks – of 6min 20sec and 10min 26sec – only the Gods Of The Stinfist know the answer). Whichever it is – DO NOT SMOKE THE WEED WHILST LISTENING TO IT! Starting with Buddhist temple-flavoured gong tweaking the collective nipples of Kraftwerk, a deep sphincter-rumbling bass and om chanting might recall ‘Parabol’. After 3 minutes of this nerve-wracking niceness, all Hell breaks loose with mega-heavy riffdom before slipping back into spaciness after 30 seconds. Like an epileptic convulsion in a night of deep sleep. Hawkwind does Greensleeves whilst Pink Floys look on. The Record Company people are starting to look nervous and uncomfortable as if they have seldom HEARD anything so strange and worrying. What the f@!# is this? Let me outta here! I need to go snuggle the Radio One Playlist! Suddenly it’s a crazed sea shanty for whacked-out space travelers. ‘You’re the only one who can hold your head up high. It’s my time now… my time now… give me my… give me my…’ duets Maynard with himself. Danny fights free of the evil clutches of Dr Baresi and goes off on one. Adam’s guitar recalls something off Lateralus again. It’s Triad, I think, but it’s almost impossible to identify one riff whilst another song goes on. The musical equivalent of rubbing one’s head and tummy simultaneously in different directions. They’re doing this on purpose to f@!# with our heads. Bastards! Returns to full-on rhythmic Toolishness to end. No it isn’t the end. It doesn’t end like any other song ends. Tool never ends. I’m losing it. Therap me now, please.

Track 5 (Probably. 6min 11 sec definitely). Oooooooh. This is THE one. Ya know what, pluggers? Radio might even go for this! Maynard’s vocals at the start are quite extraordinary. Place equal parts of Chris De Burgh, Tiny Tim and Bilal The Muezzin in a blender and run for your life. Easily the most commercial track to date. In fact, easily the most commercial track Tool have EVER done. That guitar is waaay strong again. Did Adam bribe Baresi? This is still twisted. It’s hard but commercial. The end spells a relief as climactic as a boil bursting. I go ‘Yessssss’ and the whole room of cool jouros looks round at me as if I’m a Bateman cartoon ‘The Man Who Ordered A Pork Sandwich In Blooms’. This is a SERIOUSLY awesome track. Just you mark my words.

Track 6 (1min). In which Maynard becomes a Native American for no good reason. Strange, but we like a bit of strangeness.

Track 7 (Maybe. Could be two medium length tracks and a terribly short one, too. I’m now losing the will to live with the stopwatch. It’s 14min 45sec of music, whatever). Guitars to the fore again. One long note with almost blues-like, overlaid note progressions. f@!# me, it’s House Of The Rising Sun cut with Ketamine. There are unsettling whispers and talking. Is this a bad trip or a psychiatry session? Come to think of it, is there a difference? ‘How Are You Today?’… ‘Tell Me Everything’ then THWACK! Into such a breathtakingly slappy, powerful riff kick that I’m actually physically winded for a nanosecond. Demonic, growling, rap noise over rhythmic heavy heavy groove. Forget the Were Rabbit jibe. This is a f@!# full-on, nasty, shaven headed WEREWOLF. A lightbulb goes mental in the room. The Record Company almost lose all cool and run for it. I damn nearly join them but now I AM crying. I am gulping back wracking sobs at the sheer Toolishness of this monstrous, magnificent track. This is the real deal. Again snippets from Lateralus. You ARE playing with us. You ARE! This is Tool’s equivalent of ‘spot the Hitchcock in the Hitchcock film’! But I don’t care. It’s like The Best Of Tool in one song. The Bomb. It ends like the violent end of a violent life. And then it ends again. Unless that’s another track, of course….

Track 8 (6min 44sec). Odd noises. Sea shore meets ironworks. Ever see the cartoon meisterwerk ‘Spirited Away’? You MUST! In it there is a character called Kamajii The Boiler Keeper who has 6 arms and an army of small black coals. This sound is similar. Soon joined by elastic bass and drum twangling over multi-layered Maynard whisperings and chanted vox. Shades of Pink Floyd again. Shades of the more ‘moody’ Lateralus tracks again. Reflection. Disposition. Tribal and hypnotic.

Track 9 (9min 04sec. I think). Melodic, slow, hypnotic. Almost balladic. Wall of Sound build-up. Danny does some Bamboo pole-type drumming into big riffage. Big, big sound. Tool at their weightiest. It’s almost Chinese at the end. I can think of worse things to be like. Perhaps the boys have their eyes on the World’s fastest developing market?

Track 10 (OK it’s 11 but I’m f@!# if I can work out how we got here). The walk out track (their description not mine). Oddness. The Noodles of Satan.

And that’s it. First playback and Maynard bids us farewell. ‘Hope you enjoyed it. If you didn’t we could put on a little Green Day for you?’. Second playback and Justin apologises for not being The Arctic Monkeys. We smoodge and chatter. We remember that Danny is actually the World’s nicest (and tallest) man. If only I could feel as comfy in my skin as he does. That’s it – go on, compare my insides with his outsides. We rejoice in the fact that Ľ of Tool is, in fact, English. We clamber onto our pushbike past legions of hoodies whilst the Tool Carnival ups and offs to Amsterdam. f@!# knows where THAT playback will take place but I have a shrewd idea or two…

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Hesperian Death-Horse! on Mar 04, 2006, 02:09 AM
I wouldn't doubt it. I expect the new title will most likely follow the TOOL formula of a single word that most likely does not exist yet ala Aenima and Lateralus... I like when they make up words. It gives you so much to think about.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on Mar 04, 2006, 04:35 AM
you should all read the latest article on toolband.com... it's pretty clear that the album won't follow in the footsteps of Lateralus. and as for "10,000 Days", it was there earlier as the latest news but it's gone now. so my guess is that the band didn't like getting it out there just yet. or maybe it was just a joke, I dunno. but the post said that the cover artwork is getting pressed now and will most likely leak so they might as well reveal the title of the album.

in the end, I don't really care anyways... knowing the album title now won't make the music one bit better once it's released.

and they arent songs ive ever heard so they are definatly new. and they were pretty good. it had quite a bit of double kick drum action going on, and the guitars sound similiar to "aenima" and "laterelus...the vocals, are also typical of Maynard...but i expected that. the riffs sound very typical of tool actually. i cant promise anything about uploading them, but ill see what i can do...

its definatly not undertow, ive got it and its not that......i doubt its a 'copy band' either.

i can here Danny Careys drums in an instant...ive studied his drumming for years and i can hear if its not him.

and what i heard was definatly TooL..no doubt.  from the various descriptions ive read quoted from the band members based on the sound of the album, and comparing their quotes to what i heard....it fits together.

ill try and get it uploaded this week...

The artwork for the upcoming Tool album is going to the separators/printers today, therefore it will eventually be leaked out that the name of the album is (drum roll.......) ' 10, 000 days '

im really not feeling the title 10 , 000 days. then again, i never would have thought one of my all time favorite albums would be called "white pony". so i dont know



maybe after i hear the tool album ill enjoy the name


im gonna wait for the day of the release to buy and listen, i cant wait to see the artwork, then hear the MUSIC

it seems like this album is going to have a very early feel. like back when the indians still roamed what is now north america.. its going to have a very tribal feel, from what that reviwer said after hearing the album

would tool release an album called 10,000 days in 2006? or are they taking the piss? How is this not obvious? I think the day they release an album with that name is the day maynard finds jesus again.

Ok so your a tool fan that came on a deftones board and now you stick around just because its a cool communtiy? or i dont get it, you once loved the deftones but you got mad Self Titled was all about love and wished it was just another white pony?

You've lost your faith in the deftones. Right when there gonan come at you like never before. Dont say you wernt told.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Fireal1222 on Mar 07, 2006, 05:58 AM
well

adrenaline is my favorite album

so to say that i wish ST was another white pony is wrong.

ST was so blown up by the band, and chino said it was the best record yet, and all this bullshit, and listen to it. its very bland. some songs are great, but somes are just boring

lucky you is whack. battle axe is great but gets repetitive same with good morning beautiful


i like the ST, but i was just dissapointed by it, it grew on me alot, and on it are some of my top favorite deftones songs.


i hope the new album is the most amazing thing ever. everyone on this board does. i hope i hear it for the first time, and by the time its over you just wanna go running down the street screaming there name. and post on the board in CAPS LOCK every letter telling everybody how amazing it is. i wanna turn the album on again as soon as it ends. i want to flip the fuck out at the crazy parts, and just chill to the melodic parts. i want the album to kill me and give me life again. i want an amazing fucking deftones record


will it be everything we dreamed? who knows. but im fucking BLAZED
Title: Re: tool
Post by: monk on Mar 07, 2006, 06:18 AM
yeah it took me some time to get used to self titled. once you adapt to what they were trying to do with the whole album, you can appreciate it for what it is. i think that's the beauty about deftones. once you think you have them figured out, they slap you in the back of the head with mind blowing shit.

i think it will be way different from what we dream. who knows. i'm not blazed, but i'm drunk as fuck.
Title: Re: tool

haha this is the tool thread
Title: Re: tool
Post by: DeftonesATF27 on Mar 07, 2006, 07:22 AM
The fact that it took longer 2 get used to selft titled (and trust me it took me 2 years exactly 2 get use 2 it, check out my posts from may 05') Is all the reason its better. It still sounds like it was made yesterday and stays in our time. And i love how chino talked about this record because its all true, this is why its the deftones. They purposely took a "step back" which only really ties it with white pony. Chino had more control over this record creativley than he ever did. I didnt say musically (stefen).

Lucky you was great and works just fine. Without it, it would still have 10 other perfect songs which is just great, cause i cant find a 9 Hit album like a deftones record. Without Lucky you and Annivesy, it would be 9 heavy hitters with Lovers as a B side single. They could have done so much with that record and sold out if they wanted to. but thats how it always is.

am I the only one who thinks this album can actually turn out to be shit? maybe not shit, but not at all what we expect it to be.... I mean, they've already made it clear that it's NOT gonna be Lateralus no. 2. and they say it's their "blues" album. and the lyrics are apparantly more down to earth. and, according to Danny, they were inspired by their hatred for George Bush for this album. all this doesn't have to mean it's gonna be bad, but it makes me feel like we're gonna hear some completely new things from Tool. and if you expect something like Laterlus, you might be disappointed...

OR, they're just saying all that stuff to confuse us and make us expect something completely different than what we will finally hear.

I wouldn't mind if they went back to a more raw and rock-ish stuff like on Undertow. if Undertow and Aenima could meet halfways, plus have some new stuff thrown in... that'd be nice.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: fireflyry on Mar 07, 2006, 12:14 PM

I like the epic prog stuff but agree a couple of concise straight up undertowish/opiate rock songs would be good.Depends how high they are I guess.

True and with their song structures and timing you could consider one Tool track to actually contain at least 2 if not 3 movements which could really be considered songs in their own right.

He was (Maynard) without flaw on the two occasions I saw Tool live.Not one bum note and so much power in his voice.I would never be so bold or ignorant to criticise Chino but he has hit the odd bum note when I have seen him perform and I honestly can't say the same of Maynard.

I have always judged a vocalist by their live performance.

Obviously that's my experience only but I would'nt say Maynard is over-rated in the slightest.

this was from the phallucy thread, i thought it fit better here...

anyway dude, i completely agree with you... maynard pulls shit OFF live, he fucking aces everything, especially when i saw them for aenema,  eulogy , hooker with a penis, stinkfist ... everything done DEAD fuckin on, not a single error ever. i think he's up to his game and more.

Maybe all this being true is their joke. Some people believe so strongly the titles and cover being fake when they might just be what we're getting. I dunno, we'll see...

he's the guy who writes the newsletters at the official site. he's close to the band and known for never being straight up and honest about anything regarding Tool news. that's why so many people doubt these are the real titles. they made up a decoy album before Lateralus, so who's to say they aren't doing the same thing now? but then again.... isn't it too obvious if they do it once again?

last year, maynard pulls the caper about his leaving of the band to pursue religion.... and now everyone is on their toes and suspicious about track titles, album title, etc...it really is funny... a decoy album?  i doubt this is an april fools joke again... it would be pretty dry in my opinion.

Every tool album rocks. Even the rare 8 track one i think? damn its been awhile...

I thought all there songs since undertow rocked, these dudes know how 2 make an album, and their way of making an album is brilliant 2, all mathmatically and shit.

Keenan is just a pimp with a smooth ass voice. And the dude has Ink skills on his pad 2.

So whats wrong? hmm....

I can wait for an album, im a deftones fan. Can i wait half a decade for one like the tool one? Well i guess i have 2. but why the fuck should I? things happen in that amount of time, my grandpa has died, ive lost my virginity, ive tryed weed for the first time, ever since there last record, and im just a kid, so why cant they as adults have experienced more than me and put it on tape?

i like undertow slightly more than aenema.

when i first began listening to lateralus, the patient and eon blue apocalypse were my 2 favorite songs.. now i seem to skip them alot, and ticks and leeches is my favorite song

the drums in ticks and leeches make u wanna just flip out, that song is so awesome. especially the end after that slow guitar breakdown

surprisingly, ticks and leeches is probably the only tool song i have ever disliked...it just doesn't have a good chorus at all and it lacks a decent melody

i hear tool never plays this song live because it puts too much strain on keenan's voice

then it just hit me one day, and now its my favorite song on lateralus


your right though, the chorus is kinda dumb
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on Mar 14, 2006, 11:24 PM
I loved that song from the very first drum beat. it's really the drums that do it. but for me it's the same with a lot of Lateralus. especially The Grudge.

if its tick n leeches youre talking about.  theyve done it live a couple of times..  fuck its amazing.

maynard effects himself up on the suck me dry. screams. but fuck thats an amazing song.
i'd say schism is one of the most artistic tool songs ever,  but all my faves come from aenema, HWAP, Euology, stinkfist, aenema, 46n2, etc. the whole album fuckin kills
Title: Re: tool
Post by: zee deveel 17 on Mar 15, 2006, 12:34 AM
don't get me wrong... i think maynard's vocals, especially his screaming, in ticks and leeches is very strong.  i just love the "suck me dry" part.

but the song's chorus is terrible...i think a 5th grader could have written better lyrics than:

"hope this is what you wanted
hope this is what you had in mind..."

i just can't get into it all... when i think about the standout tracks on lateralus i immediately think of "the grudge", "the patient", and "parabola"...these are much better than "ticks and leeches"

being a drummer myself I find Abe's style to be one of the most original I've ever heard. he's not extremely technical, but the things he come up with are just amazing. he's the one drummer that has influences my drumming more than anything else.

Danny Carey and Zack Hill are two other drummers with even more original styles. but these guys are way more technical.

Why?What's changed?

They do this every album and I think it's fair enough to be dubious given Tools history of screwing with the media and their fans.

i feel more and more like the bandmembers are just playing a total prank on their fans and the media with the album title and track names.

don't be surprised it this is one big joke come april fool's day.

When it comes to Tool I ain't believing shit till it's on the shelf.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: zee deveel 17 on Mar 17, 2006, 07:29 AM
last week i was a bit skeptical about the tracklisting

but adam jones has confirmed everything, there's a review from andy king on the tool message board with a song by song review of the new cd, and listening parties have already begun for various media and dj outlets

it has to be true, and wouldn't it be lame for them to pull another april fool's caper again this year?  it's just stupid.

even if the band is trying to surprise people, at this point they have to realize that it's a dull idea with every fan in anticipation of "the surprise."
Title: Re: tool
Post by: fireflyry on Mar 17, 2006, 07:34 AM
That review is a few weeks old and there was a thread on another forum (Big Day Out) which I'll try and dredge a link up for which also had a member of the press/industry in Australia claiming he had been to a media release (it was proven Tool were there for such a purpose) and the track listing was totally different.

There's a 99.999999% chance I'm wrong and it is the right listing but I ain't saying yay or nay till it's out.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: zee deveel 17 on Mar 17, 2006, 07:49 AM
maybe, but if the band is doing this just for the sheer enjoyment of surprising their fans, it's not going to be well received...they'll look pretty stupid now that many people are expecting it.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on Mar 17, 2006, 09:06 AM
I think they love the fact that people are so damn confused. no one knows wether to believe this or not and that's got to be pleasing the band. but personally I think that was just a nice surprise for them, or maybe a joke that worked a bit too well. it would be odd if they tried to fool everyone again.

Well I was reading the new Metal Hammer, and they say they've had a listen to it, and that it's 9 tracks long, rather than 11 which the official site lists. But then Metal Hammer sometimes talk out of their arses so I never listen to them. Just now I'd stick with the official site, but like fireflyry says 'I aint saying yay or nay till it's out'. Roll on May 1st!!!
Title: Re: tool

ill bet you guys a million dollars that the new album title, and tracklisting, is real

i'm sure the band members are laughing their asses off to the paranoia of some people.  what kind of band would purposely deceive their fans like this?  it just doesn't add up.

trust me, dude. that's one of their favorite things in the whole damn world. why else do you think they do an aprils fool joke every year?

but like I've said before, I'd be very surprised if the album and track titles aren't real. but it doesn't surprise me that people are paranoid. I just find it funny that some people are convinced they're not real and say things like "if these are the real titles then I lose all my respect for Tool". that's just plain dumb.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: zee deveel 17 on Mar 18, 2006, 06:48 AM
yeah, i agree... i think that a songtitle like "the pot" is pretty cool even though many people are criticizing it...fans should hear the music first and then decide if it fits the songtitle or not.

and have they done any other april fool's jokes in the past besides the one last year?  i never through they had a history of pulling this shit.

even if it is another joke, doesn't anyone agree that it's too drawn out and pointless at this point?

Tool has made some pretty incredible music.  I don't care if they fuck with us as long as the cd comes out "around" that time and it's as amazing as the others.  But, that's just my opinion.  It seems a lot of people into bands such as Deftones and Tool like to stir up as much controversy as possible, like there is a love hate relationship thing going on.  Sometimes I don't understand it that much.  Over something like song titles.  But, again, this is just my opinion.

I think most true fans of an artist are usually highly critical/analytical of their actions and work.

new post from Blair on toolband.com:

Quote
Some of you may have seen the album mini for Tool’s 10,000 Days on Amazon and on other sites that was posted ONE DAY after we showed it to you on this site (which is what we expected, and why we posted it when we did). Now that it’s out there for all to see, hopefully some of you who have been asking what exactly an album mini is might have a better idea. For those who still don’t know, it’s what a business (such as Amazon) uses to advertise a new product (such as the new Tool CD). Okay? Now, I can hear some of you saying to yourself: “But why does the image on Amazon and the other sites have the logo and album title superimposed over the artwork… when the image on the Tool websites doesn’t?” The answer is quite simple. Because Amazon and others need to include the band’s name and album title along with the artwork so that potential customers will know whose CD it is (don’t ask me why). With that said, the image that we posted on the Tool websites is how this piece of artwork will actually look with the packaging. However, we also wanted to give you a look at the new logo, so we placed it above the album mini. Okay? Just one last thing for now: I’ve been reading many of the comments on the TA message board (as well as those flooding my in-box) about this particular piece of cover art, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate some of your personal thoughts and perceptive insight into the symbology and deeper levels of the striking imagery. It seems that a few of you (those who have commented on the artwork) are also anticipating ‘the bigger picture’ – that which you’ve become accustomed to over the years when it comes to Tool’s art direction. Well, to you, I will only say that you will not be disappointed… and that the key is right there before your very eyes.

that last part, about anticipating 'the bigger picture' and the key is right before our eyes.... it makes me start thinking that this may be a hoax after all. I'm still not deciding on anything and just wait for it to come out (or for April 1st when SOMETHING will be revealed).

Maybe that's why the logo looks like "fool". They're fooling around. Or not. I'm not surprised in anything anymore, I just want the new album. But that picture looks quite nice anyway.

Tool pre sale tickets for Hammersmith Apollo in London can be found on www.getlive.co.uk (http://www.getlive.co.uk) you have to sign up to be able to order them, but it's free.

I think im gonna order tickets, I don't wanna risk not seeing them.
Title: Re: tool

Tickets ordered, and they were fucking expensive, for 2 it came to Ł68, it's put quite a dent in my bank balance.

Just out of intrest has anyone been to the Hammersmith Apollo in London?, whats it like?

I'm most likely gonna head over for Germany to see them. they have a show here in Sweden too, but it's a choice between a small club in Germany (where I saw Deftones/APC before) or a huge outdoors scene in Sweden... I think I'll choose Germany.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: black coffee on Mar 24, 2006, 02:33 PM
that'd be cool. anyways, a tool show in germany will for sure NOT be in a small club, especially not in Berlin ^^ I really don't know how big clubs are in sweden, but I think the columbiahalle is not small at all.

as soon as Isis are confirmed, I will buy my ticket.

well, it's not huge. Tool mostly do big arena-type gigs, so I'd say it's pretty small for being them actually.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: black coffee on Mar 25, 2006, 01:01 PM
if i go to the show i will see them in a 5000+ capacity hall, I think thats the dimension you will see tool in most places in europe.

last time they toured europe was in 2001 and they played in exactly the same hall they booked this time.

in my opinion a club is a show where less than 5000 people go to, thats all.

chill.

but. what`s the drift with the title? why 10000 days? any ideas?


listen, seriously listen


last night i was incredibly fucking stoned (what else is new). but i listened to aenema and something hit me.  tool arent just making albums, theres either some type of story, or some type of experiment going on. but its not a new experiment or story between albums. it keeps being built onto album by album

i was listening to some songs on aenema, and i remember the intros to them being really fucking creepy. i have a feeling this new album is going to be fucking scary as fuck, with a very very dreamy lyrical use. i think maynard is going to try and express the way he views life on this album, more than he has on any other album


if tool has a blues album, its not gonna be 10,000 days. it was aenema


10,000 days is going to do something to us mentally. it may seem like music to us after a few listens. but there is going to be some type of thought or movement goign on behind the music. this album tool is finally gonna do what they always wanted to do. they are going to put all of there listeners into a trance, and have us at there whim to do whatever they want to our mind


im telling you. be prepared for this album. tool arent the deftones, they aren't going to just make a catchy heavy record. they are gonna try and change our entire thought process
Title: Re: tool
Post by: lostpilot on Mar 25, 2006, 08:28 PM
I know this all, and surely agree. Tool isn`t just music at all - it is something as a message. I prefer to listen it on good conditions of mood. You see, they are making some sort of occult music.
I know this sounds different and in some way freaking, but I know what some of the songs mean not in the base context. I mean I`ve dealt with some occult shit (what to talk about visions while being stoned) and I know what do they mean.
I prefer Lateralus, it is somehow different to me. Aenima needs a really deep mood to consume, and now Lateralus is both a moody and a catchy record. But I can`t resist listening to Third Eye in/after a good part, after a good horror movie, in bad mood and so on.
Just need to feel it. Karma kick for you, great post.
Title: Re: tool

Well I wont be arrogant in the thought that I knew what you just said was the way it was foinna be like! But what you just said is what I feel Tool are all about (woo, speed tyoijngis beitter), all I know is it's gonna br mmonumental! No doubt about itr!

How big is Hammersmith Apollo, as in how many does it hold? I bet Glasgow Academy is smaller! All you dudes should come up here to Scotland, it'll be awesome! Then you can see Deftones on the 8th as well, make a little weekend holiday trip out of it.

Hammersmith I think is the biggest theatre type venue we have, it's like 5500 people so its pretty damn big for that type of place.

I'd love to come up to Scotland man, but I don't think the funds would stretch that far :(
Title: Re: tool

so... anyone else excited about tomorrow? April 1st.... they will come up with SOMETHING... it'll be interesting to see. they probably have to put up some real news besides the hoax news to make it less obvious, so it can be an interesting day. or they might just reveal there's no new album or whatever, haha.... anyways, first thing I'm doing tomorrow is to check toolband.com...

Now I'm not too sure how to read the spectrum analyzer in Winamp but apparently "H" has no low or high (can't remember which is in the right side) frequencies. The last few columns don't appear at all.

Just seemed odd to me since I haven't seen that in any other song by any other band.

anyone else read this? its a fuckin great article..

adam jones using a talk box? thats fuckin awesome..

The attitude on this record is more about putting people in their place, but w/o controlling them. We're saying, "You have an opinion on this, but this personwho went through that whole thingmay have a different perspective. You should think about that before you say something. You're not bad for thinkingwhat you thought, but you need to consider the perspectives." There's a lot of that on this record.

I didnt know there was an official toolband myspace page, but my brother did. This is a bulletin that they left the other day

Quote
Just returning from an important meeting with our own Solomon in regards to the front pillars of the temple, whether or not they should be black or white. He has been rather apathetic throughout the entire construction so his input is of little value to the widows son, and were rather fed up with him. It shall be done on schedule whether or not Binah has his genderal indicators removed and thrown behind a Bush to ferment for four thousand years. Thank Ford this isnt an every day occurrence in LA.

Now the legal papers are in and the band's official myspace account has been TEMPORARILY RENAMED. In case you are wondering, yes, you are still on our friends list, hence how you are able to have this display in your bulletin section. Ive gotten more messages in regards to not understanding this than Al Gore has received middle fingers (including my own). Everyone knows George W. Bush invented the internet, which is why youre all stuck before a telescreen giving off proverbial Amusement and radiation, which technically are the same thing, every night.

Now, the announcement that we informed you chosen would be fortunate enough to hear. Later this week, once curiosity in regards to what happened to the official myspace account diminishes a bit, we will be releasing temporarily one of the tracks from 10,000 Days for not only the listening pleasure of you but for download. It will be up for a solid twenty three hours and then removed again. The track will be selected by divine inspiration (via OBELISONG) and then posted for the predetermined amount of time and then removed. Upon the amputation of this maniacal ear-bleeding abscess the Toolband name will be returned and we will begin reaccepting friends and such.
Hope we have a crowd of avid Bill Hicks enthusiasts.

I'm getting real pissed at the fact that I dont have the tickets in my hand yet! Apparently there's been some problems with the printing of them or some shit, something to do with the Carling Academy, which is real annoying. I called the shop the other day, and the guy was a dick, he said if I'm so worried about the tickets I could just come in and get a refund! Idiot!

Yeah, he was just being a prick! When I paid for them (about 3 or 4 weeks ago now) he said they'd have the tickets later on in the week, so I head there later on in the week, they aint got them in, so I'm told they'd have them in by the next Friday. So I sit through the week anxiously waiting for Friday, phone on Friday, they still havent got them, and I'm told definitely next Friday (the other day). So I call on Friday, ask them, and he simply answers with a 'no' and gives me all the refund bullshit. I'm like are you fucking insane, this is Tool we're talking about, do you not realise how much this means to me? It sounded like he was getting annoyed by the fact I was calling and asking so much, but I mean for fucks sake, I keep getting told that they're definitely gonna have the tickets in by a specific day, then they dont, of course I'm getting anxious. I've paid my money already, I want the tickets as quick as I can dont I?

I'm just bitching hehe! Still, they're taking a ridiculously long time in getting the tickets printed and sent out to the various places which they're distributing them to. Hmm, maybe I should take Maynards words literally - "Be patient..."

did you get a receipt? (proof of purchase?)

Yeah dude, I got two little slips that state that I've paid for two unreserved tickets. So I'll definitely get them, as I said before I'm just bitching, heh!

I'm just bitching hehe! Still, they're taking a ridiculously long time in getting the tickets printed and sent out to the various places which they're distributing them to. Hmm, maybe I should take Maynards words literally - "Be patient..."

did you get a receipt? (proof of purchase?)

Yeah dude, I got two little slips that state that I've paid for two unreserved tickets. So I'll definitely get them, as I said before I'm just bitching, heh!

i got em on the net man, usually depends tho but the net is easier for me sometimes but I got Dream Theater tickets on the phone and they came quicker.

the only thing i have a problem with (but keep in mind this is only one song) is that after 5 years, it doesn't sound like they've changed much... and the lyrics (the actual words i mean) don't sound as strong as they used to (talking about vampires and tv and zombie and shit i mean come on)

whatever, i'm still impressed, it's 7 minutes of bad ass i think

i know maynard is the one for metaphors i'm just saying like the actual words aren't maynardish. it's like having a deftones song where one of the lyrics are like "jiggle balls bounce bounce" or something, i mean it's good for system of a down but not this shit you know. thats why i'm saying just his word choices are kind of weird. i never thought maynard would say shit like vampires and zombies and shit, or at least in one song

 but then again, that also applies to the shit album title and some of the track titles... rosetta stoned? the pot? i dunno...

Eye on the TV cuz tragedy thrills me.
Whatever flavor it happens to be.

Like...
Killed by the husband.
Drowned by the ocean.
Shot by his own son.
She used a poison in his tea, and kissed him goodbye.
It's my kind of story. No fun 'til someone dies.

Don't look me at like I am a monster.
Frown out your one face, but with the other stare like a junkie into the TV.
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child.
Watches him die. Hands to the sky, crying "Why, oh why?"

Cuz I need to watch things die...from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies.
You all need it too, don't lie.

Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing.
Neither the brave nor bold will write us the story,
So we won't give pause until the blood is flowing.

I need to watch things die...from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies.
You all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain falling down.
Drawing on the grave and bound.

Part vampire.
Part warrior.
Carnivore and voyeur.
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

Incredulous at best is your desire to believe in angels in the hearts of men.
Pull your head on out your head, and reason, give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again.

The universe is hostile, so impersonal.
Devour to survive, so it is, so it's always been.

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies.
Much better you than I

Title: Re: tool
Post by: ben on Apr 15, 2006, 07:41 PM
They make the same song, if that's what you mean. hahah I don't know, I just didn't want to hear more of the same thing from them.  I would have hoped they would have switched it up........but same old thing.  It actually has a lot of the structure as Schism had, espeacially that slow bridge thing going into some climatic thing........basically it's like schism, but just not as good at all...it's not even catchy, and atleast be catchy if all else fails.

I don't know, that's just my two cents.  I'm sure for hardcore TOOL fans you guys love it, because of the lyrics and all that.  But as just a guy who isn't that big of a fan, just kind of sounds like just another typical TOOL song.

I can understand the Schism comparison because that's what came to my mind in many parts, specifically the guitar in the beginning and during the bridge. And while the song is great, it does sound somewhat typical Tool. Also, the vocals are good and fit to the song's mood but it's nowhere near MJK's peak. Still, good stuff...I've listened to it around 20 times already...

Yup I agree.  Schism was a good song, but there were other songs on Lateralus that blew it away.  Of course, Vicarious isn't going to be the greatest song on 10,000 days..if anything, it's a small sample of what's to come ;)

my question to that, if you happened to be listening to the radio and they started playin it, would you turn the radio off? same with any other song you don't want to hear... then again i don't listen to the radio, they play SHIT, except tool, they play that a lot... monday for sure they're gonna play tool like a bitch...

They make the same song, if that's what you mean. hahah I don't know, I just didn't want to hear more of the same thing from them.  I would have hoped they would have switched it up........but same old thing.  It actually has a lot of the structure as Schism had, espeacially that slow bridge thing going into some climatic thing........basically it's like schism, but just not as good at all...it's not even catchy, and atleast be catchy if all else fails.

I don't know, that's just my two cents.  I'm sure for hardcore TOOL fans you guys love it, because of the lyrics and all that.  But as just a guy who isn't that big of a fan, just kind of sounds like just another typical TOOL song.

yeah man people say all tool songs sound the same,  its different to me , i study their music alot, so differences really stand out for me, but sometimes they do overlap , and ill credit that to adam, hes an amazing guitarist , but this song sounds like ticks n leeches, schism, and other songs in some parts... but maynard makes every song different... gotta fuckin love the man. same carrey hahaha  Danney Carrey = God of percussion, all other can suck him dry... SUUUUUUCKKK HIIIIIIMM DRRRRRRYYYYYYY!

around here u usually dont hear tool on the radio. sometimes i do though


anyway, if vicarious was playing on the radio. i would change the station. ive waited 5 years for this album, i have the will power to wait 2 more weeks

im also gonna wait till the release of radiohead and deftones album as well

Well I've always thought with Tool, alot of their songs took some time to really hit me, like 'H' and 'Pushit', which are like two of my favourite songs by them now. I dont know, I'm not saying this song is on the same level as those, but you know, just give it time to seep in, for it to hit the right spot. Or maybe I'm just talking complete bullshit, you decide.

 I really like it already, I mean I think when you hear a song, and you want to keep on listening to it, then that's a pretty good sign hehe! But I know that there's gonna be alot stronger stuff on the album than this. I may be disappointed, I dont know, but I'm not thinking about that yet. I'll just enjoy 'Vicarious' until then.

when deftones ST came out, it didnt feel new at all cause i had already heard. hexagram, minerva, and lucky you

and. i heard a bunch of samples of the songs when the songs werent titled correctly yet, like bukakke and cracker

the first time i heard lateralus i thought it was the biggest piece of crap i had ever heard.

then for some reason i read up on the spiral theory and stuff from the album,so i bought it, and after hearing it once, i was addicted. its like a switch was turned on or something



10,000 days. i dont know. i hope it blows us all away on first listen

to be perfectly honest. ive never been so confident that an album will be amazing. like 3 years ago i remember not doubting tool, and knowing this album would be there best

When i first heard lateralus i was totally blown away,i never heard anything more intricate and innovative in my life.Without a shadow of a doubt,in my eyes,i think danny is the greatest drummer ever,he never ever fails to amaze me,he is a machine.And everytime i listen to lateralus i hear something new that i adore.
                                                                                   Ive seen them live once before,that was back in 2002,ozzfest,it was insane,their stage presence is so perculiar,it made such an impact on me.They are my favourite band of all time,adam and maynard are the best  lyricists ever,i love that indescribable feeling i get when i listen to songs like eulogy and sober.
          The new song,vicarious,is in my opinion,one of their best songs yet.It reminds me alot of lateralus,with little intricate pieces placed everywhere.I dont however believe that its going to be on the new album,i think it was just a song that they recorded and decided not to put on the album,and thought it'd be clever to leak onto the internet,i also doubt that the album will be called 10,000 days,not that that means anything to the music,i just think it doesnt fit in with aenima,lateralus,opiate,salival,undertow......

why would they start promoting the album using the title "10,000 Days" if that's not gonna be the real title? it'd be one thing if they announced that name a month ago and then suddenly changed it because either it was a joke or they came up with a better name. but now record stores and magazines are using that name all over the world. and wouldn't just be the dumbest joke ever?
Title: Re: tool
Post by: ToneDef on Apr 17, 2006, 12:04 AM
It would be the coolest joke ever and typical Tool. In fact, if the album is released totally different to whats been said then surely that would generate even more publicity.

I just dont think the information we've been given adds up.

I dunno, I still haven't decided what to believe. and I won't decide what to believe until the answer is there right before me. but the fact is that I just don't care that much. IF Tool were to release a completely different album than we've been told, I would totally respect them for having the guts to go through with it. the thing is I find it really hard to believe that their record company would allow something like that. in the end, they probably don't give a fuck about Tool more than the money they make from them. and a huge record company just wouldn't play such "games" to try to generate more publicity for a band.

what if TOOL are fooling us



what if the album isnt coming out may 2nd


maybe the band broke up and dont plan on releasing anymore material



maybe maynard has found jesus and is out in israel somewhere walking barefoot and trying to find the meaning of life


maybe TOOL never even were a band and we've just imagined them the entire time





or maybe. the album wont even have a title, and it wont have any artwork either. all it is, is a disc that u put into your cd player. and then the music speaks


rather than worrying about omg, maybe tool are fooling us. maybe theyre martians, fuck just wait for the album and then if the album sucks, tool fooled us

Yeah, I was hoping for some artwork that was nothing like we had ever seen before. Maybe something futuristic. The current one just reminds me too much of that whole Lateralus look. For something we've been waiting for so long, it was kind of a let down.


However, it is the music that matters. I just hope it's the next step from Lateralus.. Whatever that may be.

vicarious?

No idea to be honest man although that title rings a bell.

Was reading an Australian forum about a week ago and apparently the new single and 70-80% of another track have leaked.Normally I'd delve deeper and download but seeing as the album is so close I'd rather wait.

Personally Tool is one of those bands where I totally have to listen to the full album, all the way through, for my first time listen of new material (neglecting any videos that is).The placement of songs structually and in the context of the album as a whole is somethimg I've always admired Tool for as they do it well and while I don't usually mind an early listen to a single with some bands it's like reading a middle chapter from a book with Tool.

its a great opener. but its not nearly the best song on the album. im just saying that if u guys find vicarious to be good. the rest of the album may be mindblowing.

tbh i think the grudge was the most intricate and complex songs on the album,eulogy and the grudge are imo tools best songs,but each to their own....

that's crazy that so many are let down,  i find this song to be amazing in every way,  maybe im just too big of a tool fan and will rape anything new by them, but i have already heard it at least 100 times, and i love it more and more everytime, i love the feel of it.

My brother thinks he's found a my space with two new Tool songs on it, though one is titled 'Vicarious' but isnt. I'll ask him for the link if you want, but I dont really want to check it out to be honest, I happy with the one song just now.

i agree,and EVERYTIME you listen to it you find something else that amazes you...just like every tool song ever...im so psyched,i like the lateralus feel to the songs,with little new intricacies added in...ive never been more hyped for a new album as i am for this.

Post by: Fireal1222 on Apr 18, 2006, 08:36 PM
ok heres what i think


i havent heard vicarious. but everyone says it sounds like schism, and i think it was made to sound like that on purpose

its the first song on the album, and the single. so they want people to think they are going one way. then every song after is in a totally other direction
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Crazylegs on Apr 18, 2006, 08:40 PM
That is a theory, which might be very true. I hope so, or whatever, i really like this song.

Oh and fireal, it doesn't really sound like shcism at all, there's just one riff that could sound similar.

Post by: Jerry_Curls on Apr 19, 2006, 04:44 AM
That kind of sucks. The need for a substance to make something better when it should be the best without any. The use of any drugs while listening to TOOL should be used to make it THE BEST.

Should I d/l it or wait...I'm really patient, but for some reason, this is so tempting.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: deftoolsys07 on Apr 19, 2006, 04:51 AM
i'd say go for it. what's the difference if you're going to buy it anyway, and you're still going to listen to the album the whole way through, instead of like "ruining it" by hearing like 4 songs off the album, ya know? just get it early, it's great quality, and then later pick up the official release may 2. consider it an early release
Title: Re: tool
Post by: indychino on Apr 19, 2006, 04:51 AM
It is really tempting be honest.
I want to hear the next evolution of Tool.

But I downloaded Beware the water and am really dissopointed with the song
Title: Re: tool
Post by: deftoolsys07 on Apr 19, 2006, 04:53 AM
well beware the water was live, i can tell the studio version of that song is going to be much different... chino's guitar is going to be more audible as well as the keys, same in fm, if you listen to the keys during the little breakdowns, can barely hear on the bootleg but the cd will kick ass...
Title: Re: tool
Post by: fireflyry on Apr 19, 2006, 04:54 AM
I folded and it's good quality and more importantly the full album.

I feel a tad guilty but it's not like I'm not going to buy it anyway.I mean Tool's packaging is enough to justfy a purchase not to mention the fact the sound quality will be superior.

Then again I'm easily tempted although I still have no idea what FM sounds like.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: lostpilot on Apr 19, 2006, 03:14 PM
Okey, my comments on the album. If someone still did not listen, don`t read :)
1. Vicarious - well, as I`ve said somewhere before, this song sounds just like a single. Single song, without no magic and without any deeper throughts. Although, the drum track in the end of the song is really great. Similar to Lateralus, also, A Perfect Circle stuff.
2. Jambi - one agressive song, somehow also sounds as a forthcoming single or just simply Lateralus B-Side. The song has nice drum track, is very strange in the rythm. I mean, it sounds very uncommon. I liked it for the end of it, also sounds nice.
3. Wings For Marie - now ok, I loved this song. This song has part two, 10000 days and the songs fits perfectly together. It sounds so damn good, all melodies are really fitting in, good one. First song in the album to give me chills.
4. 10000 days - I guess by far the best song on the album. The whole song reminds me of Third Eye, having the intesity and long lasting effect. Well, I guess the song will be also a single, jus because of how good is it. Chills.
5. The Pot - Weeeeeeeeeeeeeell, the beginning of it is REALLY odd. First of all I thought of that fake song on MySpace, but then I just got it as a different song. Somehow reminds me of Aenima. I don`t know why.
6. Lipan Conjuring - Okay, here goes the Toolish part of the occult. I couldn`t have imagined Tool album without such a song.
7. Lost Keys - intense guitar, then very melodic one. Somewhy this song ALSO reminds me something off Lateralus (guess I`m too into that album, so I just start seeing everything as in comparisson with Lateralus). But anyway, this song suprised me by being, as far as I understand, instrumental.
8. Rosetta Stoned - very nice song, unpredictable, various in melody and drums. Lost Keys part two? It reminds me of.. Very well, even though I`d like to understand all the lyrics. Could call it H. part two, somewhy. Also, the whole song is really agressive.
9. Intension - well, for sure this reminded me of Disposition/Reflection (damn, here I go again with the L). Calm, becoming stronger, than some associations with The Patient. Calm one, anyway.
10. Right in Two - this one surprised me. As the album turned into the end of it, I was hoping for a song like Third Eye and suddenly came this song with being sad.. I understand it as sad.. Angels and monkeys. Really great song, very emotional.
11. Virginti Tres - 23 - ok, now, this song is strange. Of course, strange as Tool strange. It, onl the moments, reminded me of Ions and Faaip de Oaid VERY much. But also, makes me chill.. scary. And somewhy, it takes me to such place, where I hope for a song like Third Eye. Something scary, long and anticipated.
Well, I`d like to know this is not the end. I`d like to know this album will have a b-side, which could stand in for the Third Eye thing.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: mokeloke on Apr 19, 2006, 03:43 PM
i take back what i said about this album, i like it more and more everytime i lsten to it. i listened to this twice last night in a dark room, by myself, with the headphones on. to me, it seems like it is a concept album, there is one story that all the songs piece together. i need the lyrics to clarify it more, but it seems like there is a person that dies, and goes to hell for 10,000 days, then is sent up to heaven, because "10,000 days is enough in the fire" (10,000 days). he talks to god, and is told to be a hero and save the world. he then wakes up in the hospital, and doesn't believe what happened himself...he "must've been HIGH" (the pot), and runs off a story to the doctor, but, in the end, can't remember what he was told to do to become a hero (rosetta stoned), hence, nothing changes and "the angels are on the sideline, waiting for this tug of war to end" (right in two)...and the end with the evil sound of like something rotating is symbolic of the world continuing on as it was...


and i wasn't on drugs when i thought of this...
Title: Re: tool
Post by: fireflyry on Apr 19, 2006, 03:53 PM
Much of the album deals with the death of Maynards mother.She had a stroke and was stricken to a wheel chair as a result.The time between her stroke and her death was 27 years or approx 10,000 days.

As Keenan explains on commentary on aMOTION, his mother suffered a stroke that left her in partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound. The length of time between her paralysis and her death was 27 years, or approximately 10,000 days

Yeah, heard about this leak last night. Person I was speaking to downloaded it, told her not to tell any details but she said it was fucking awesome! But hell, I'm not touching that leak with a 20ft pole.

i'm waiting till the 1st. I've heard Vicarious and that's all till then.

I liked With Teeth!

(http://img161.imageshack.us/img161/9074/buddychrist2cr.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)

I like 10.000 days but my only criticism is it's underwhelming for me personally.There's no surprises and the song structures are almost identical to previous work.I had a really good listen to it last night, headphones on, lights out, no distractions and I could hear so many riffs and song stucture ideas that were really only subtle variations of older work.

Intro, verse, chorus , verse, chorus , breakdown into 3-4 minute mellowness, big build up to chorus with the addition of 4-5 guitar layers and Danny doing his best impression of an octopus (I have to say his drumming kills as always).

I still love the album but if I was to rate all the Tool albums up to this point 10,000 days would be bottom of the pile.Maybe I expected more from Tool....maybe I expected to much?
Title: Re: tool

Title: Re: tool
Post by: eZe^ on Apr 23, 2006, 10:45 AM
Ok here I go,
I would profess to be one of the biggest tool fans around- going to see them 3 times in june and I'd like to think I dont talk much shit when it comes to the band. SO here comes the shit.
After listening to the 'new tool album' at least 40 times by now there was a very unsettleing feeling around me I couldn't put my finger on. On my first listen the definite change in tool was apparant, something was up. I did set out to listen to the album openly and to konck down the 5 year wall of expectation which inevidabley existed, but something was still up.
The first striking thing about the album was the production. The album had been mixed for quite a while so I do not believe it was an unmixed leak or anything. Tool are renowned for there polished production and this effort was definitley very dusty! I mean with danny carey-the drum god that he is, his kit sounds like shit on all tracks bar vicarious, the playing is dossile and unadventurous. Also the sounds of the recording differ on each track as if it were compiled as oppose to layed down.
Another striking thing was the albums concepts. I mean in all tool albums there is an underlying message which flows throughout to emphasis connectivity and movement. This album DOES NOT flow in that way. The track are completeley off focus with each other and the meaning are scattered and unconnecting-very not like tool! This album just isn't consistent with others!
The aLbum was alledgedly written in all of a year and a half yet I have a the track wing for marie part 1 being played after triad during the 2001 tour! Anyone doesn't believe me? just let me know and Ill send you the link which I cant find just now, plus I'm rushing this!

I believe this album is a decoy album-an album of song scattered throughout there carreer, it would make sense this way. The concept of the artwork for this album is steareoscopic imagery-looking at something, then again to get a 3D different image-check Adam jones's my space for more! This AGAIN highlights TOOL's message which is think for yourself and question everything. I believe vicarious is off there real album and would make perfect sense with the whole message of the song describing the world as retrieving everything from tv, internet etc and taking it as gospel. Also american dj's have called the album 10,000 years as did amazon as did oprah! When corrected on this by avid tool fans the radios replyed saying you're actually wrong we've got confirmation that it will be called 10,000 years from the band. This would make sense- 10,000 days (what a beautiful song) is a dedicated album to maynards mother who was parylised, and here comes the big one!- died 10,000 days (27 years) after she was parylised. For 27 years years she 'never had a life' and remained troubled and vegetable like. This connects beautifully to the supposed 10,000 years album which I assume would mirror his mothers struggle in that she is the microcosm of the global epidemec- a world that has become troubled and vegetable like! Also viginti tres meaning 23 in latin may be a clue if you listen to it that there is another 12 tracks to come..... 11 + 12 = 23- viginti tres.

Ok so I may be talking complete shit and you may all laugh if and when I'm proven wrong I'm just plantin seeds people. I love 10,000 days but I really don't think its the final chapter. Luckily I work in HMV so I'll be hearing the album prob on wed! If it is a decoy then Tool would pull of the most amazing stunt in history by fooling the media, the ppl etc and in the process underscoring there message which is LOOK DEEPER! Anyway just a thought.... Tool rock!

Valid comments but either way we will find out sooner than later.

I would add to judge the production off a rip, not to mention mp3 quality, is never a good idea.I honestly think it is the offical album but will be more than happy if I'm proved wrong.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on Apr 23, 2006, 12:28 PM
I will say this again, just to remind everyone.... a huge record company would NEVER EVER allow such a thing. just think about it. it's not Tool's decision, it's the record company's decision. they wouldn't see the humour in it and would only care about how many sales they'd lose over it.

I don't think this would hurt their record sales. Most of the tool fans that have this leaked album are goin to buy the cd no matter what. Decoy or no decoy. If people know there is a new tool cd it doesnt really matter what its called, cause they will find it. And plus if people heard about this whole decoy album thing, it might make them more curious. Its not like if they changed the name of a cd that you would never be able to find it, cause you know their is a new Tool cd on May 2. Thats all you really need to know.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: lostpilot on Apr 23, 2006, 05:40 PM
wow, and what do you think about.. like. imagine.
tool released unsafe '10000 days' album.. the fans get the leak.
and then, a fan buys a true album from amazon/shop whatever and..
..finds the double cd inside.
and then he finds, that whole two cds get the 23, the viginti tres, songs.
i guess the fact that we, fans here, got the leak before, and it is still not the release date. this means we DO NOT KNOW what is in the album and what surprises may it cause.
just think about everything.

a while back my friend told one of my friends tool was coming to fort worth july 7, then that friend of mine told all of these people, everyone at school was talking about it, and i'm a big fuckin tool fan, like more than them of course, so i had no idea of what they were talking about... i was like no way, i would have known about this shit before them.. i did some investigation, and my friend read the dates wrong.

the dates on their site before were from the SUMMER OF 2002!! i'm not sayin you're a dumbass or anything, i'm just sayin that was weird that my friend made the same mistake and didn't read the fuckin headline above the tour dates... got everyone's hopes up over nothing

A while ago, before Tool changed their site I was on their tour section and they had some dates up.  Now all the dates are gone, and the list completely changed.  Are those venues the only ones they are hitting in the U.S. before Europe or are there more to come?

a while back my friend told one of my friends tool was coming to fort worth july 7, then that friend of mine told all of these people, everyone at school was talking about it, and i'm a big fuckin tool fan, like more than them of course, so i had no idea of what they were talking about... i was like no way, i would have known about this shit before them.. i did some investigation, and my friend read the dates wrong.

the dates on their site before were from the SUMMER OF 2002!! i'm not sayin you're a dumbass or anything, i'm just sayin that was weird that my friend made the same mistake and didn't read the fuckin headline above the tour dates... got everyone's hopes up over nothing

Damn, thanks.  I don't think either of us really read anything wrong... they didn't have the year at the end of the dates... for instance: it would just say... Baltimore 8/10... that sucks very badly, and then next to that it said, tickets go on sale June 28th.

listen to the beginning of the rosetta stoned.. do you hear the line:

doesn`t this sound similar to Saw/Saw 2 movies killer tape voice?

I don't know if I'm alone, but 10000 Days is probably my favorite album of Tool. although I respect Tool more than I listen to it. This is kinda the first Tool album I really enjoy listening to the whole thing. I never heard Undertow, not a big fan of Aenima, and I kind love half of Lateralus. But this album I enjoy it all. gonna buy it for sure.

1. Euology
2. hooker with a penis

5. Vicarious

this is a VERY VERY hard game, with a band as good as tool,  i think every song is my favourite....



also question for all you friends... ...   are there any guest vocals on the album? rosetta stoned , the beginning sounds like 2 vocals, just wondering .

Title: Re: tool

maynard's dick is good... i wouldn't have a problem if anyone else liked it. i for one enjoy it (we're talking about the song here, right? lol)

heres my 5

1. eulogy
2. wings/10,000 days
3. porabol/a
4. the pot
5. lateralus

i dunno i cant have only 5 songs i like.. i mean i love every song off each record... i don't think any of opiate or undertow really was their most outstanding work though...

If you go via this address, the site has less problems, at least for me did. I've been there longer than here so I don't know about registering nowadays but the server has lately, every now and then, been too busy to access the site. Also, they've been banning people daily so maybe they banned you before even signing up. ::)

well if not, search for it. anyways, they are stereoscopic lenses. and when you look through them at the artwork it is all 3 dimensional.

the first bit of artwork didnt go 3d for me. then i flipped the page and their is a laterlus type picture of a human body with some stuff around it. and it just morphed into 3dimensions and it shocked the fuck out of me.

I don't expect a Laterlus 2. and seeing as I love APC just as much as Tool I wouldn't complain if the album is more APC-ish. because it would still be with a Tool sound. my friends who have listened to the new stuff say it's great and compare it more to Aenima than anything else.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Paint Your Lips on Apr 28, 2006, 05:08 PM
It's nothing near APC, Cody. I really can't see that ! You got some weird friends, haha. Aenemic on the other hands, his friends def. got a better opinion, and i would agree with them, that i do feel the new album resembles Aenima more than Lateralus.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Oldnewtype on Apr 28, 2006, 07:08 PM
yeah i know its nothing like APC lol thats exactly why they pissed me off, I dont think they realize theres three other guys in the band other than Maynard though. I tried to tell them...

I don't feel it really resembles Ćnima anymore than it does any of their other albums though. I hear just as much of it as Undertow, Lateralus, and even hints of Salival (Pushit mainly).

Like I said, comparing this album to anything and approaching it with expectations does it a huge injustice.

But, I guess we're just human. So MARCH ON CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS!!

your friends are stupid,they cant rate the tool album on just one listen,you gotta listen at least 40 times for it to really hit you...and on first listening this album has made the biggest impact on me...its absolutely amazing so far,lets hope it gets even better as it sinks in...

Got mine this morning.
Fucking brilliant,

and the artwork, wow! The added lenses on the side of the packing are really cool.

Went to a club last night and Vicarious was on there, quite a lot of people danced to it actually... its funny seeing people dancing to Tool though, you have to do some 'space dance' to get it in time lol.

And I like the fact that people are saying it's closer to the sound of Ćnima, because that's in my top 3 albums of all time!

see what i mean

Haha, I just read your earlier post more thoroughly than before, now I see what you mean! Well as long as it is as great as people are saying then that's good enough for me heh!

My review of 10,000 Days (i've only listened to it once).

1. Vicarious
The first single which most people have already heard. I love this song, it's a great opener and right in your face. It could easily be a b-side off of Lateralus (that isnt a bad thing). The ending is absolute killer 10/10

2. Jambi
Whoever said that 10,000 was going to be a Lateralus 2, think again. This song is so different and has one of the coolest guitar-riffs ever. Nice and heavy, a great rocker 9/10

3 and 4. Wings For Marie (Pt 1)/ 10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2)

One of the most beautiful Tool songs i've ever heard. I hear a major Pink Floyd influence in this song and everything about it is perfect. The best song(s) on the album. 11/10

5. The Pot
This songs really confirms how fantastic Maynard is as a vocalist. His voice is phenomenal and at first, it doesnt even sound like Maynard. Very original and with some of the best vocalwork i've heard from Tool. 10/10

6. Lipan Conjuring
A little filler, sets a nice mood. Nothing special. 5/10

7. Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann)
Same as above, only better. 7/10

8. Rosetta Stoned
This might be one of Tool's heaviest songs to date. The chorus is really dirty and angry. The verses are spoken, very fast. Heaviest song on the album. 8/10

9. Intension
A very nice, atmospheric song. Soothing. 8/10

10. Right In Two
Awesome song, starts slow and builds up towards the end. Excellent basslines in this one. 9/10

11. Viginti Tres

A creepy closer, no vocals. Best "instrumental" song on album. 7/10

Overall, this album is almost perfect and you must do yourself a favor and listen to the album without skipping any tracks (the first time you listen to it) to get the full experience. The album is one big journey through musical soundscapes and beautiful vocals and haunting lyrics.
Starts off very strong and powerful and gets a little weaker in the end.

I give 10,000 Days:

9/10

I hear alot of talk about amazing time signatures and guitar work.  To the contrary, it's very predictable in every way.  Nothing special at all here.  The single is horrid.  This is a passable album and nothing more.  Should have been an EP.

That sounds like a hate post and I don't mean it to be.  Just my opinion is all.

Post by: Phatboy41 on May 01, 2006, 06:26 PM
I've listened to the album all the way through about 4 times, twice paying strict attention, and twice just kind of background music.  Personally, I think it's pretty damn bad.  It was almost as if I was waiting for something that never came to me, I felt like there was closure to all the last albums, and this one the point kind of feels lost, or in other words, it feels like there isn't any.  There are parts of each song that I like, but the album as a whole isn't that great to me.  I expected more, that sucks.  Just my personal opinion.

Oh, wait...

Was that supposed to be some kind of biting remark?  You shouldn't feel so threatened by someone with an opinion that differs from your own.

Like I said in my original post (I thought it was fairly clear), I don't hate the cd.  I quite like two of the songs.  I suppose I'm not so easily satisfied.  It's a good and bad thing.

More power to those who enjoy it.  I wish I could bring my expectations to that level.

Oh well.  It's just a cd.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Paint Your Lips on May 01, 2006, 07:48 PM
It's not about expectations, they only kills an album. I mean, if you've already set the standard in your head, and it's not met, you can only be disapointed.

And it's not "just a cd". That's the most demeaning thing to say. This album is killer. The riffs are nice, Danny is an amazing drummer. His talent isn't something you can deny. And the whole atmosphere, songs like 10.000 Days and Intension takes the listener to another level. If you let yourself dive into it that is.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: sleeptraveler on May 01, 2006, 07:52 PM
Well, arent standards set by past releases?  Therefore one is going in with a certain amount of expectation.  It's only natural.

Like I said, I do wish I could lower mine.  If that reads like I'm being a smart ass, it's not my intent.  I have a tendency to hold artists I admire to a very high standard and perhaps that is unfair. 

And you're right it's not just a cd.  Theyre still only mp3s at this point.  :P

I agree, I think that past released albums set standards.  That's why bands have such long careers, because their fans set a standard and the demolish it or don't even come close to meeting it.  I don't deny that Tool or many other bands don't care about what we might like becuase it may take from their ability to write a great album, which is why I said it was my "personal opinion."  To stray people from feeling I was saying that the album would suck for everyone who even touched it.  I don't deny that Tool has talent either, I know they do, that's why I love them so much.  I was just saying that 10,000 Days didn't quite hit me as hard as I'd hoped.

Yeah, so after 30 or 40 listenings, I think it's safe to say that this album is a masterpiece in my opinion! Of course there was never any doubts about that haha! But yeah, I love it!

My favourite tracks are probably Wings For Marie/10,000 Days (these two beside each other are perfect, there is just a nice sound floating all the way through, and the way it progresses is great!), Right In Two (simply a classic sounding Tool song right here), The Pot (Maynard's voice sounds so fresh and clear in this song, which is cool), Jambi (man I love the introduction, nice and meaty and jagged rhythm).

This album is shaping up to be the best new album I've heard in years (even better than With Teeth and Leviathan). Not sure where it lands in the Tool spectrum yet, but man...speechless!
Title: Re: tool

My ranking:

1.Ćnima
2.Undertow
3.Lateralus
4.Opiate
5.10,000 Days

I agree totally with Sleeptraveler after listening to 10,000 Days at least 30-35 times through.In my opinion it's their weakest release to date, same chords, same song structure, it's just way to predictable with few surprises although I like the changes in Maynards voice.

I would also add before people tell me I'm totally wrong and that this is the best thing since sliced bread that we should be able to disagree without assuming that one person is therefore right and one must be wrong.In many ways music is an expression of freedom and we should be able to pass honest comment on it without getting jumped on just because the majority disagree as I think happened when SleepTraveler voiced his/her opinion.

When I compare this album to Ćnima and Undertow, for me, it's not even in the same league.I have listened to both albums probably thousands of times and still do but 10,000 Days bores me already.Theres nothing new.

Is it a great album?Of course but is it great in comparison to their previous releases?As a fan who has cued for midnight releases of every Tool album since the release of Undertow in 93, not even close.Rad artwork though.

Well thats cool man, type what you feel and dont feel pressured to think what everyone else thinks. I personally love it, but I haven't been a Tool fan for ages, only since Lateralus really but I prefer this kinda stuff... maybe because I really like APC too and it does have more of a APC vibe to it than their other stuff.

My favourite tracks are probably Wings For Marie/10,000 Days (these two beside each other are perfect, there is just a nice sound floating all the way through, and the way it progresses is great!), Right In Two (simply a classic sounding Tool song right here), The Pot (Maynard's voice sounds so fresh and clear in this song, which is cool), Jambi (man I love the introduction, nice and meaty and jagged rhythm).

This album is shaping up to be the best new album I've heard in years (even better than With Teeth and Leviathan). Not sure where it lands in the Tool spectrum yet, but man...speechless!
WORD!!

Just to let you all know everything on this page is fake. Remember 'lateralus' when they decided to tell us it was going to be called 'Systema Encéphale'? The album wont be called '10,000 days' and the cover art is an old peice by the artist Alex grey who designed the cover for lateralus. The main hint though is in the 1st track title 'vicarious' which means 'to take place of somthing else'and 'lipan conjouring' that is the screen name of the tool guitarist on louisvillemojo.com. There are several fake MP3's released on P2P networks that are unreleased tracks with almost no vocals. If that isnt enough proof tool are up to their old tricks again look at the tracks lengths they released and how their different from the leaked versions...

"With a majority of the songs on 10,000 Days clocking in well past the seven-minute mark, you wouldn't be entirely mistaken in thinking that the title of the album refers to how long it actually takes to make it through the whole thing."

Dude that's a mighty can of worms you want to open.

The only people that know what the albums mean are Tool and honestly there is more speculation, over analytical theories about the meaning of Tool albums/songs than there are about David Lynch films.

In saying the album means whatever you want it to mean to you personally.In nearly every interview I've read that's all Maynard states and I agree with him.

I agree. I read a recent interview with Maynard, and he said that Tool would be over sooner than later...but that he still had a little mischief in him. I think the next will be the last. That said I really enjoy this album. I didn't have any expectations for it--haven't been thinking about it like I think about Deftones albums--but it's really solid. I listened to it for the first time and was a bit dissapointed, but was half falling asleep. The more I listened to it the more I liked it--and now I'm pretty firm about it being really good. I was at Coachella on Sunday and saw them--it was a really good show--they sounded album perfect. I can't wait for their next effort.


Much respect,

Yeah when my bro went to get it, apparently there was only two left, and the album was the only one people had been buying all day. Apparently mid-week it's set to go in the album charts at No.3 here in the UK!

10,000 Days and Right In Two are my two favourite songs on the album! They're like The Grudge and The Patient of the album for me (my two favs off of Lateralus). Just thinking as well, imagine if you fell asleep during listening to it and woke up on Viginti Tres, man that shit is creepy as fuck! You'd think you were in hell! Satan-in-the-engine crazy shit! :D

Look through the lenses with your eyes about three inches away at the various pictures that you can flip through. Then slowly pull the lenses closer towards your eyes.
It shows the pictures much larger and in 3-D.

So no one else fucking HATES the 'breakdowns' in the songs?  

Did they intentionally set out to ruin the few good tunes on the cd?

There are great moments, quickly followed by absolutely terrible, lazy attempts at (What I assume the band to see as 'interesting') structure changes.  '10,000 Days' being a prime example:  An emotionally epic builder, only to shift radically after the crescendo, to Maynard (backed by comical, amateur guitar work) half-singing "Oooh, oooh...".  Did anyone else laugh at this point in the song or was it just me?  Completely and utterly shits all over a great song.  This is where I hit the skip button.

Just awful.  

What's actually ruined this album for is this seemingly frivolous, forced need to throw pointless, uninteresting changes into the songs.  These are the kind of things a new band might do in practice, as they're finding their footing and sound.  The kinds of things you throw away and don't ever record becaus they don't add anything to the song.  They actually take you away and out of the moment.

Yeah.  This album is only getting worse for me.  I don't think I'll be listening to it again.  And I really wanted to like this thing.  What a Total.  Fucking.  Letdown.

What is it with you; You don't like changes in songs? What the fuck? There's nothing more mindnumbing than a song that has the same fucking drive or rythm for 4-7 minutes.

i really like the album so far, the songs are great.  i dunno how i feel about the whole flow of it so far or how the songs fit together, but i haven't listened to it more than 10 times all of the way through.  i definitely hear a lot of apc in maynard's voice now, but also a lot of old school influence, like the way he sang on undertow and aenema as opposed to the more subdued, monotonous (not in a bad way) tone he took on lateralus.  so far i don't know if i'll like it more than lateralus, that album just has an absolutely perfect flow for me and all of the theories and everything behind it blow my mind, but it's really, really good.

10,00 days.
wow.

After reading the reviews I was expecting something else, like I would need to listen to it a few times like "Lateralus" to like it.
But instead I liked 10,000 days the 1st time I listened to it.

In fact I would go so far as to say it's TOOLs best album yet. I mean over all best album. There's probably more songs I like (well so far) on the older albums, but what made 10,000 days good is it didn't have alot of small filler non-songs b/t songs. And I think song to song it was better than "Lateralus"


Some of the songs did kinda sound like older TOOL stuff, but so what. It's still good.

And I realized that one of the riffs in "Vicarious" sounded like Load-era Metallica. Like the breakdown sorta to "Poor Bleeding Me"


Now to see what the video(s) are gonna look like and to hear them live w/ the new stuff. Something about 10,000 days reminded me of being in the parking lot for Greatful Dead shows. lol ;)

ok here we go



the first 4 songs are absolutely killer in every way!


The Pot, especially the beginning, is just annoying to me. im sorry.


Lipan Conjuring, and Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman) are fucking amazing.


Rosetta Stoned isnt a favorite of mine


the last 3 songs end the album well.



i think the beginning of the album starts as everything ive hoped for, and then just kinda fades from there. the moments the album has are amazing, but u have to search for hte parts that really suck u in


usually the guitar solos were the best parts of the songs. the end of jambi has an insane solo

I find the best way to feel an album is to actually listen to it in your car. Right now I'm finding Vicarious to be a sick single, but im worried its gonna become boring later as I hear it everyone where now, but ill always come back to it. Right now I still need to do some driving to get through all of it but this what im feeling about the alum. It feels like its an extension of their old album as you can catch some of the old familiar rifts here and there. this album is feeling like a "SESSION" album to me right now, and I dont mind them jamming just cuz its TOOL. Well Im sure ill get through all of it, right im im trying to just stick to listen to it strictly while im in the car even though I did download the leak  :P. I hope to find more favorite tracks, rock on  ::)

Right now I'm finding Vicarious to be a sick single, but im worried its gonna become boring later as I hear it everyone where now, but ill always come back to it. Right now I still need to do some driving to get through all of it but this what im feeling about the alum. It feels like its an extension of their old album as you can catch some of the old familiar rifts here and there. this album is feeling like a "SESSION" album to me right now, and I dont mind them jamming just cuz its TOOL. Well Im sure ill get through all of it, right im im trying to just stick to listen to it strictly while im in the car even though I did download the leak  :P. I hope to find more favorite tracks, rock on  ::)

nice just be quiet and drive!

ok here we go



the first 4 songs are absolutely killer in every way!


The Pot, especially the beginning, is just annoying to me. im sorry.


Lipan Conjuring, and Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman) are fucking amazing.


Rosetta Stoned isnt a favorite of mine


the last 3 songs end the album well.



i think the beginning of the album starts as everything ive hoped for, and then just kinda fades from there. the moments the album has are amazing, but u have to search for hte parts that really suck u in


usually the guitar solos were the best parts of the songs. the end of jambi has an insane solo




dude, you gotta listen to the pot again, it's really really good.  i swear.

I think tha package alone is worth the buy. But in all fairness, I love the new album too. I understand that some parts of the album seem too long just for the sake of having a long album but there was a lots and lots of work on it and RIGHT NOW, I won't mind. It obvious that in 3 months I won't be able to listen to it fully as I do right now, but it doesn't matter right now.

yes, tool and APC are both awesome, in every way. but if i had to pick 1 of the 2 it would have to be tool, what can i say im more proned to listening to them than the other.
10,000 days from what ive heard is very good, vicarious, right in 2, and there is another song floating around lime wire with the same name as vicarious but is all heavy instrumental are very good.

It's Maynards voice, it's so fresh and high in the intro! But yeah, I think it's cool and has a catchy "chorus" you must have been high! high!. It reminds me a bit of stuff off of Undertow, just his voice in it!

Actually a day before I heard vicarious on the radio.. and I felt bad cause I didnt think it was them.. I was just like haha sounds kinda like tool. and it was turned down.. and then about 4 minutes later it was still playing and I was like... fuccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkk... IT FUCKIN IS TOOL. ITS LIKE 20 MINUTES LONG. IT MUIST BE TOOL. But ya I felt horrible cause it didnt actually process in my brain that it IS tool until then.

if you cant feel the kick , then you're not hearing danny carey!!!... he's the intensity, picking it up comes naturally to me, but alot of people dont even hear his technique or understand it.  i see what you mean assassin, i mean i could NEVER like korn or good charlotte or bullshit music, and i guess tool to you is BS music, although they are the most tallented band out there as of today, and know what they're doing, and can play their instruments like no other (except maybe adam :P, but he does the job) ...   but yeah , for every man/woman his/her own,  if we didnt have opinions we'd all be the same, conformist bastards...

Rosetta stoned is the best song ever...  lost keys (blame hofman) is clearly a title based on an acid trip, and leads to rosetta which is about one bad acid trip and an alien telling him that he is the chosen one ... "You are the chosen one. The one who will deliver the message. A message of hope for those who should choose to hear it and a warning for those who do not."   ... but he forgot his pen so couldnt write it down,

hoffman is a friend of the band.

remember that everything that Tool say/do should be taken with a large bowl of salt.

60% of Maynards lyrics deal with loosing his mum (Judith, Jimmy etc) and his life after that. the rest aare about drugs and stuff.

i personally love the album. You can tell it was written for themselves with no singles in mind.

Tool have prefected the anti-climax

Haha, I'm determined to get you to appreciate Tool a bit more!  :D Try the tracks 'Ticks & Leeches' or 'Part Of Me' then. If that fails then so be it!

It's funny you should say that you find their music boring though! Back in the day, I got into Tool because I found that they were far more exciting than most of the "simplistic" straight forward music I listened to (apart from Deftones and NIN). I got bored, and Tool relighted the fire if you know what I'm saying!

If you believe there has to be an immediate hook, then fair enough, but I think that personally if you stick at music and give it a chance then it can be very rewarding in the long run!

Who knows, maybe one day it'll click in place.

nah,what i think is that the critics dont know tool well enough,they arent listening to the album more than 6 times...with tool everytime you listen to them they get better,i dunno,its like their unhuman....and to all the critics reviewing after one listening and saying its shit-dont worry,their only the greatest band ever,your not missing much!!!

Don't take this as an insult at all.

From what I have read of your posts, and I do read them, it seems your in a certain place in music to me. You listen to bands like Muse, Metallica, Trivium etc. I'm not holding that against you at all. But those are prime 'starting out' bands. Especially in Britain. I started on bands like Nirvana, Green Day, Machine Head etc. Same kinda easy listening bands to get you into Rock/Metal. I'm sure I've read somewhere you're relatively new to the kind of Rock/Metal scene. If you're not then disregard this post entirely.

My point is that eventually you will find your taste progressing. When I first listened to Tool my ears were more used to that kind of versechorusverse style and as a result it was kind of in one ear and out the other. Just a kind of bland heavy noise.

Now though I fucking love them and have done for quite some time. It just takes time to kind of develop your tastes. It can be just one little sound, like a 2 second part of an album to spark off an emotion and then the rest just builds from there.

I'm not trying to be all high and mighty by the way. I'm just saying, you know?
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Assassin on May 06, 2006, 12:27 PM
I've been listening to bands like Linkin Park, SOAD and Muse for years, but only since around Autumn last year, when I was discovering Deftones and a few other generally better bands, have I actually got into rock and metal in a big way. Now it's all I listen to. So yeah, you could say I'm relatively new to it (and was even more of a noob when I first registered here), but I've come a long way thanks to certain members on the board, and also an active interest I've taken in discovering new bands. So yeah I really don't think that's the reason why I'm not keen on Tool. You mentioned that 'When I first listened to Tool my ears were more used to that kind of versechorusverse style'. I'm guessing you are referring to the prog-rock style of Tool's music, where the 'versechorusverse' construct does not usually apply. Well, again I have to say, this definitely isn't why I don't like Tool - thanks to law I've recently had the immense pleasure of listening to Dream Theater, a progressive metal band, whose song structures are far from the typical versechorusverse style you referred to, and if anything it makes their music infinitely more interesting. There are so many bands out their whose music bores me completely after just one minute of a 4 minute song, and yet I can sit and listen to songs by Dream Theater that are as long as 23 minutes but are so rich and interesting that it feels as if the song is only 4 minutes long.

I'll give you a list of a few bands from my iTunes library, to prove to you that although I do like 'starting out' bands like the ones you mentioned, my taste extends beyond that:

At The Gates
Avenged Sevenfold
Biohazard
Black Label Society
Carcass
Chevelle
Children Of Bodom
Deftones (obviously)
Diablo
Dream Theater
Glassjaw
In Flames
Lamb Of God
Machine Head
Mastodon
Megadeth
Meshuggah (I'm loving Destroy, Erase, Improve)
Metallica
Muse
Nirvana
Oceansize
Pantera
Poison The Well
Rage Against The Machine
Savatage
Sepultura
Thrice
Trivium
Unearth
Yngwie Malmsteen.

Btw, I have to give credit to a few people from the board for introducing me to some of the above bands, they know who they are.

My dislike of Tool relates to the fact that I really don't like Maynard's voice. From what I've heard of their actual music, it's good quality stuff and I'm not dissing them for that or trying to say they're a crap band or whatever. They're just not my cup of tea.

Btw, if from the above bands you can make any recommendations of other good bands that you reckon I might like, please do! I will openly admit I'm a rookie when it comes to rock and metal, so the help is always appreciated.

My point is that eventually you will find your taste progressing.

Maybe not progressing but expanding. Well, at least that's the case with me. In the 90's I was a bit narrow-minded concerning music but now I listen to everything. It just takes time, a second or tenth listening, a pause and another listen. When I first heard Ćnema, I thought it was a nice rock song but nothing more and after few years I was in love with the song. Actually all the best bands don't hit you instantly.

Btw, if from the above bands you can make any recommendations of other good bands that you reckon I might like, please do!

Of course I can. ;)
Btw, what did you listen to before you got into rock/metal except for those three bands you mentioned?



Anyway, the new album is getting better...now I'm listening to Undertow and soon get back to 10KD for the third time. I agree with Tonedef there that 40 times repeated would probably do no good.

Btw, what did you listen to before you got into rock/metal except for those three bands you mentioned?

You mean which genres did I listen to? Well it was a mixture of hip hop/rap, RnB and what I thought was rock/metal at the time, but later realised was more like nu-metal. If you mean bands, I listened to Evanescence, some Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach and that kind of stuff. To be honest, I didn't take much of an interest in music back then, I never realised that the music industry potentially had a lot more to offer than the crap they played on Kerrang TV on repeat. Thankfully I have been enlightened now, at least to a certain extent.

Btw, if from the above bands you can make any recommendations of other good bands that you reckon I might like, please do!

Of course I can. ;)

Go ahead. ;D

Yeah, I had a hiphop-phase (Cypress Hill, Wu-Tang, Ice Cube etc) ten years ago too and then came the rap/rock to metal (RATM, Korn, Deftones, Slipknot) season.

I'll put some recommendations into your thread. Don't want this to get too off-topic.

Anyway guess if you dont like Maynards voice then that's kinda it, although for years my mate hated Deftones mainly because of Chino's voice, now he loves them! Of course with both, the voice is the main driving point of the machine, if you know what I mean!

10,000 Days is the absolute shit yo! Haha! And yeah it's definitely a grower, when I first heard it, I was like this is cool shit, now I fucking love it!

oh, i feel more of a pink floyd influence on 10,000days  than on any other of there albums.


if u listen closely u can hear a british man talking in the background of one of the songs, i forget which one ( not the doctor in lost keys )


but the british man speaking sounds like the exact same dude who speaks in the background of darkside of the moon

paul mcaurtney is one of those guys.  they brought in several 'big' or just interesting men and asked them questions like...    "have you ever hit a person?" , "what state of mind were you in when you hit the person?" "would you do it again?"  and so on.   and yes 10000 days reminds me alot of the floyd in many parts , some samples and keyboard parts remind me of echoes or shine on you crazy diamond

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Chrisbo on May 07, 2006, 04:32 PM
As long as when I see them they play for longer than an hour and a half (which I'm sure they will), then I'm happy! As for the setlist, there's no way I'm going to be disappointed, there isnt one "proper" Tool song that I dislike! Of course there's the favourites such as H and The Patient and that, but I'm not going to be like "Man, so fucking disappointed" if they dont play them!

And yeah, apparently the Glasgow tickets have been printed now but they cant distribute them because on the back they have NME printed on them (which is the same as the Anthrax and Deftones tickets, and they have nothing to do with NME).

Post by: Fireal1222 on May 07, 2006, 07:53 PM
if i were going to a tool show. id want them to play 10,000 days, from beginning to end




anyway. im calling you out firefly, and anybody else who isnt amazed by this album


its everything i could have possibly hoped for, and i dont understand how it didnt blow me away on first listen



the 1st two tracks are getting you into the album because it has a lateralus like feel. especially the guitar solos


then tool take a totally different direction from song 3 to the end



my favorites are:

jambi
10,000 days
the pot ( i hated this song when i first heard it )
lost keys (blame hofmann)
right in two


the album is very complete, and flows together well. the artwork is absolutely mind boggling, and i really love the basslines on the album

the guitar solo at the end of jambi scrambles my brain everytime

firefly was right when he says that this albums has many predictable parts. but it still sounds great




theres a part in the song, the pot, about midway through, when the bassline kicks in even stronger, and you begin to feel the song paint a picture


everytime i close my eyes and hear this album with headphones, i picture the native american from the photos inside the album, and on the cover


Title: Re: tool
Post by: Paint Your Lips on May 07, 2006, 08:09 PM
I hear ya, Jarad. And i too hated The Pot the first listen.

The album is kickass, no doubt. And the whole atmosphere and soundscape of 10.000 Days and Wings for Marie is amazing. I love to dive into it.

And of course when you hear Lipan Conjuring you can't help thinking of native indians. And Lost Keys is just killer when you're stoned.

I'll give it a 9/10 for sure.

Fave tracks.
Vicarious
Jambi
10.000 Days
Rosetta Stoned
Right in Two

But, in its entirety, all tracks are equally great.

No offense dude but that statement is wrong.I'm a long time Tool fan and I rate this as their poorest release to date and have encountered as many fans who dislike the album as love it.

Just because an opinion differs from yours does not mean it's wrong or the person is either "retarded" or any less a fan than you.Just because it's Tool does'nt mean it's the best album ever made.

Google is your friend:

Rosetta Stoned - Tool

Alrighty then
Picture this if you will

10 to 2 AM
And actually eating up an old box of Krispy Kremes
And my need-to-know potion.
I was just outside Area 51
Contemplating the whole chosen peopleť thing
When a flaming stealth banana split the sky like, wide open.
I never expected to see it in a place like this.
I do believe I spilled a diamond sundae
Or something wet on my Birkenstocks
And [you're yelping]
Holy fucking shit

Then the x-file beings who were like
some kind of blue-grey [Jackie Chan]
With Isabella Rossellini lips and breath that reeked
[They're wicked-shot terrorists all by making the sound]
abananadabanana so when I opened up my bug eyes, my gaping jaw and my sweaty lower and upper lip
And all I could think was
I hope that my partner here doesn't notice
that I pissed my fucking pants

So alive in this way
Like an apparition
You have me crying out
Fuck me
It's got to be
Dead head
Chemistry
The blotter got
On top of me
Got me seeing
E mother-fucking T

And after calming me down with some orange slices
And some fetal spooning
The ET revealed to me his singular purpose
He said you are the chosen one
The one who'll deliver the message
A message of hope for those who chose to hear it
And a warning for those who do not
Me, the chosen one, they chose me
And I didn't graduate from fucking high school

You had better...
You had better...
You had better...
You had better listen

When he looked right through me
With somniferous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is surreal
Like the time they floated away
See, my heart is pounding
Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now

It was surreal
Like I woke up in Wonderland
All sort of terrifying
I don't want to be all alone
When I tell the story
And can anyone tell me why
It was a repeat experience
will I ever be coming down
This is surreal
Finally it's my lucky day
See my heart is racing
Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now

You believe me don't you
Please believe what I just said
See they're telling the truth
And this wasn't all in my head
See they took me by the hand
And invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin

Strapped down my bed
Feet cold, eyes red
I'm out my head
Am I alive am I dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn shit the bed

hey hey

Overwhelmed as one would be placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the one
Born to bear and read to all the details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see
But I forgot my pen shit the bed again
Typical

Strapped down to my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive am I dead
Sunkist and Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infrared
won't help the brain dead
Can't remember what they said

God damn shit the bed

I Can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be A HERO
I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said

Don't know, oh no (repeated 12 times)

God damn shit the bed

Google is your friend:

TDN's quite friendly too. (http://toolshed.down.net/lyrics/10kdayslyrics.php)

I was just checking the lyrics and I think the overall theme of the album is human nature, the bad side mostly (don't know if this was mentioned already though).

Edit: to be more specific (just my first interpretations):
Vicarious - People need to see violence though they say they're against it.
Jambi - Refers to the Indonesian province, the sultan and the dutch colonists...and there's something more subtle, might be about unwilling ruling.
Wings For Marie/10,000 Days - About MJK's mom.
The Pot - Hypocrisy, lying and shit like that.
Lost Keys/Rosetta Stoned - Acid trip (blame Hoffman for creating LSD). Though also might be that LSD makes us actually see and if you say stuff about UFO's and things like that, you're put into a nuthouse, or silenced at any cost. Actually reminded me of the Pentagon hacker...
Intension - We were born pure and if alone we would be pure but even presence of another humans rises the bad feelings in us.
Right In Two - Kinda continues from the previous. People are just greedy talking monkeys. Where's the sharing yo? Wouldn't be wars or figths if we just could divide it all right in two.

As for the music, it's just getting better and better every time.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: wheresmysnare on May 08, 2006, 04:15 PM
The Pot was my favourite song on first listen, pretty catchy for a tool song, it's got a good hook with a meaty nu-metalesque riff, tool were aiming towards the high brow prog rock on lateralus, good to see they have chilled out a bit and aren't scared to make a catchy song at the risk of offending their overly pretensious sector of fans.

The ability exists to become accustomed to anything over time.  No matter how mediocre.  To those asking if it's worth purchasing:  It's not.  Spend that on Animals by Pink Floyd or American Prayer by Jim Morrison and experience the state of money well spent.

According to Neilsen SoundScan, "10,000 Days" sold a whopping 564,000 copies in its first week here in the US, landing at #1 in the Billboard Top 200 and outselling Pearl Jam's new album (#2) by a little more than 2-to-1.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on May 14, 2006, 05:34 PM
I've been saving my 10,000th post for a review of the new album and now I feel I've listened to it enough to form a real opinion on it. so here goes...

first of all, I really think this was the natural and nearly perfect way to move on from Lateralus. sure, it would've been exciting to see Tool do something as completely different as their previous albums have been from each other. but I can't really see them moving in any more directions without losing what they're all about. with this album it seems like they built from Lateralus and added some old Aenima-era sounds while also exploring new grounds. now for a short review of each song...

1. Vicarious --- this song got me hooked right away. it's nice to see Tool make a catchy song while still doing their thing. my favorite parts are when he goes "she used the poison in his tea" and the final chorus or what you wanna call it. the only thing I don't love about this song is Maynard's "whispering" vocals. I prefer when he sings clean.

2. Jambi --- at first this was the only song that didn't speak to me at all. but it quickly became one of my favorites once I got a grasp of it. I love the mellower parts where the guitar play that monotone riff and the bass plays the melody. and, of course, the heavy part and the following solo. the entire song is kinda like a neverending build-up, and even though it feels like the epic ending never comes it isn't annoying in any way. it just flows so well from beginning to end.

3. Wings for Marie --- at this point, I can easily say this is my least favorite song off of the album. it's not bad, not at all. but it just doesn't stand out to me. when it finally kicks off towards the end it's pretty cool but I always expect more to follow.

4. 10,000 Days --- after listening to the 6+ min "intro" or whatever you want to call it, this song really annoyd me at first. I expected this to be the heavy one of the two tracks, but I guess that would've been too obvious. after listening many times I'm starting to like this song a lot more. especially when it starts getting more intensive. I still haven't decided if they managed to pull this 17+ minute epic off or not.... somehow I feel they damn nearly did, but not completely. I would've been satisfied with only the second part.

5. The Pot --- after first listen I liked this song most of all. then after every following listen I quickly got more and more bored with it. it's still a kick ass song and I think it'd be perfect as the second single. it's just that one song on the album that didn't last as long as the rest. I dunno, it might just be me, but I feel a strong Zeppelin-vibe from this song and I think that's pretty fucking cool. I think this was the most surprising song on the album for me.

6. Lipan Conjuring --- although I'm a sucker for world music, especially stuff like this, this really feels like unnecessary filler. I think it would've fit in better between 10,000 Days and The Pot, with the tribal feel of the first song and the chant-like intro of the latter.

7. Lost Keys --- for me, this is the beginning of the absolute peak of the album. I absolutely fucking love this song. it's so atmospheric and simply beautiful. the dialouge between the nurse and the doctor is a perfect intro to the wild trip that follows.

8. Rosetta Stoned --- starts off perfectly and then only gets better and better. there's not one part of this song I don't absolutely love. the lyrics are awesome, maynard's vocals are awesome and the music is awesome. this is now easily one of my favorite Tool songs and the moment the entire album builds up to. they really managed to make this song sound really fucking creepy. maybe that has to do with me being obsessed with (and frightened of) the thought of aliens, haha. but you can really hear how desperate and out of his mind the person telling the story is.

9. Intension --- like the calm after the storm this song is just really soothing and relaxing. the electronic drums that come in after a while are really cool. this is the only song on the album that kinda gives me an APC vibe. but you can still hear it's Danny behind the drums.

10. Right In Two --- a nearly perfect calm ending to an otherwise very intensive album. I love the lyrics and the way Maynard sings them. the "chorus" is pretty damn good. the only thing I have to say really is that I think I would've preferred if the entire song was as chilled out and mellow as the beginning. the heavier part towards the end feels a bit unnecessary to me. but it's still cool.

11. Viginti Tres --- dunno really what to say about this. dunno really what Tool wanted to say with this either.

throughout the whole album you can hear that each member has progressed a bit. hard to tell if it's new influences, improved skills or just the lust for experimenting. but you can hear it clearly on pretty much every song. it kinda feels like Adam has taken a step back actually. and I don't mean skill wise, I just mean that the guitars aren't as big and prominent as before. but maybe that's just me... as for Danny, I love how he's mixing up his unearthly technical stuff with some basic rock'n'roll beats here and there. this is also definitely different than before.

right now I don't really know where I'd place this album in my Tool top 5. I listen to it a whole lot more than the other albums, obviously. but only time will tell if it beats Lateralus. it will never beat Aenima imo.

10,000 days is fucking amazing in every way.



first time i heard the album, i really didn't enjoy it all that much besides the song, 10,000 days..



anyway, after hearing the album plenty of times, heres my review like aenemics




Vicarious- amazing intro, the first 2 songs of this album make u think ur in for lateralus 2, and then you realize that this is something totally different. but anyway vicarious is a great way to start the album


Jambi- probably my favorite song on the album, the guitar solo at the end is just so awesome. the end of the song u get a lateralus feel, but then it goes away and the following songs sound much different than tool's earlier work


Wings for Marie 1 - the lyrics are just so awesome, and i think this song is great. nothing amazing, but great


Wings for Marie 2 10000 days- amazing song, everything about this song rocks, and it splits the album down the middle PERFECTLY



the pot - the first time i heard it i HATED IT. but now i absolutely love it and think its an amazing song. theres a point around the 2 minute mark of this song where i begin to feel it paint a picture


lipan conjuring - i disagree with aenemic, i think this song was very necessary on the album, and its placement in the track order is fine as well.



lost keys- i like this song alot, but it gets slightly old after a while, but i really love the atmospheric and psychadelic feel of the song


rosetta stoned- just like the pot, i hated this song when i first heard it, but now i fucking LOVE it..   i really think they do an amazing job with it live from the bootlegs ive heard. i wish i was seeing them



right in two- another amazing song, and i must say, tool can be chill, yet still heavy.. its hard to explain but even though the song starts off mellow, its very heavy emotionally




amazing album.

After reading endless reviews on forums over the last 2 weeks I have to say that yours was on point man.Nice to see you actually criticise points, song structure, etc as much as you praise.Personally nothing is worse than reading the endless fan reviews that are so ridiculously one sided you wonder how they fitted the keyboard up Tools backside as clearly that is where their head is.

Nice work and a worthy 10,000th post.

speaking of wines, maynard makes and sells his own wines.

i'm not too good with words, but this album  is perfect.

maynard's vocal delivery is at times haunting, the line " this little light of mine, the gift you passed on to me, imma let it shine, to gaurd you on your way" is carried with so much pain.

ive listened to it three times now, and i will admit it gets slightly better every listen; but i really think everyone is just unwilling to admit that the cd isnt very good, so they find loopholes to make the cd okay since they were expecting something much better.

Yeah man I totally agree! It is a given with Tool that the more you listen the more you get into it! Fair enough if it's not the same for everyone, but I think it's an overall consensus with most people! It's not about loopholes at all, well for me anyway!

I think the best albums don't hit you instantly but grow on you and surpass the instant hits after a while. I've gotten bored of the bands that I loved from the first listen but now I love the bands that took some time to get into. Acquired tastes last longer.

Post by: Gaz on May 18, 2006, 03:16 PM
Found this on another forum

Quote
Do you remember that Tool did weird stuff like use the fibonacci sequence on the syllables of the verses in Lateralus? This is even crazier and cooler, and you have to follow a couple of steps to get it.

The mystery of the filler "Vigniti tres" and the two "Wing" parts being a bit similar to each other now make sense, as well as the cover of the album. If you play Wings pt1+Vigniti Tres at the same time as Wings pt 2, you realize that the 2 songs are equal in length to Wings pt2 ... That means that they are meant to be synchronized! The frickin' band synchronized 3 songs!!!! The cover of the album has two faces looking sideways and one big face looking towards you. MAybe the two faces are the 2 smaller songs and the bigger face is the long song ... combined result in one big head.

Just check it out ... the combination is incredibly well done. I am breathless!!! The sync with vigniti tres with the second half of wings pt2 is probably the coolest part, but the first half is really cool too with different riffs in syncs, talk and response of voices, complicated drumming, etc.

The problem is to do it right. The method I use is very hard. I put my headphones in first. I put my Tool disc on the computer, and use windows media player on just track 4 (wings pt2), then transform tracks 3 and 11 into mp3 files in your disc (downloading it may not work since the tracks may vary in length, unless you use something like torrent, stick with mp3 transformation since it's legal though). Ok, now that you have the mp3s ... click play on those two files using winamp.

Now, here comes the tricky part. Press play on the winamp file then pause it. Now, move the winamp windows in a way so that it's very close to the play button of window media player. Now get the time bar of winamp to the far left (the beginning of the wings pt1) and press play, immediately pressing play on the windows media player one. There will be like a 1/10 second difference and is not very noticeable at all.

Maybe there's another way ... if you have two CD drives, maybe you could burn your 10,000 days CD twice (one with wings pt2 and one with the other two songs) play the two at the same time and you won't have to do any tricky stuff.

from http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=23344&FID=3

I haven't tried it yet.

TOOL
2006-05-13
Auditorium Theatre
Chicago, IL USA
source- Sony ECM DS70P,
Sony Hi MD MZ-M100 (PCM 44.1)
Transfer- USB Upload from Sony MZ-M100 to Sonic Stage> FLAC Frontend


Lost Keys / Rosetta Stoned
Stinkfist
Forty-six & 2
Jambi
Schism
Right in Two
Sober
Lateralus
Vicarious
Aenema

Maynard was bothered by a cold / sore throat, but stuck it out, and his mike was so low in the mix it wasn't noticeable anyway. Really expected better sound in the Auditorium as it's arguably the best venue in the City to see a show, but for a rock show it wasn't bad. This comes from the 1st balcony, just right of center, so there is considerable crowd noise, but this IS a TOOL show! First time live for "Right In Two" and it was great.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Doofaes on May 19, 2006, 08:14 PM
I did the mix and I dont think it sounds too hot. Just like a big off time mess to me. Granted, there are some parts that line up beautifully, but for a lot the time, the tempos arent even matching. The part with Virginti Tres at the end sounds cool, but thats because Virginti Tres doesn't have any time, so it could possibly fit well over a lot of areas. For example, I tried flipping the tracks, and I thought I had something, because the "climax" of Virginti Tres lines perfectly with the loudest thunderclap in 10 000 days, but once wings pt 1 comes in over top of the second half of the song, its much the same as the reverse: certain parts coincide and sound cool, but other parts just make a big mess. I also tried aligning the endings of both songs (they are the same), but the match only lasts for a few bars, as they both ritard at different rates.

So my conclusion so far: a very interesting fluke.... though it is really curious that wings 1 and VT combine to make the same track time as 10 000 days... so there might be something there, but if there is, I dont think its been found yet.

I tried mixing it by playing part 1 and viginti tres in winamp while playing part 2 in windows media player. some things do sound really cool. while some sound a bit messy. but it never sound wrong, like it's not supposed to be like that... my guess is that this may very well be what Tool intended. if not, it's a pretty cool coincidence either way.

Scratch this reply if this has been mentioned already, but I also found this on the toolshed forums... If you play Intension backwards around 0:55 and 1:00, Maynard is saying
"Work hard. Stay in School. Listen to your mother. Your father is right."
I think it's hilarious... You'd think if Tool had a hidden message it would be the opposite  :D

Ignore everything except for the whisper, and you can hear it pretty clearly.

If you want to do it yourself, download audacity(free), load the mp3 up, highlight and zoom in on 0:50 to about 1:25, and click on the reverse effect.

the more i listen to 10000 days, the more I think The Pot would make a great 2nd single. it would fit much better than Jambi for example. Danni Carey said in an interview with a german magazine that there were three possible singles, the first two tracks on the album ( Vicarious and Jambi ), and the song that starts with Maynard and Justin (which must be The Pot ). I already imagine how a video for The Pot could look like... that'd rule.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Jacob on Jun 09, 2006, 10:12 AM
nope, me neither. the sound was almost perfect. and they played really well. the only thing I noticed was that Danny started a bit early on Lateralus. and I think he might've slipped a bit in Rosetta Stoned because Justin turned around to look at him and kinda nodded to him to come back into the beat or something.

anyways, I was pleasantly surprised with both the band and the crowd. I was almost up front, a bit to the right side and saw everything perfectly. and I thought people would mosh their asses off so up close. but the crowd was really calm. they just stood there. everyone was really into the music, singing etc. but everyone stood still and, at most, did some slight headbanging. so that pretty cool, being able to stand so close to the band and seeing everying withouth worrying about the crowd.

as for the band, they seemed really into it and after the show they even stayed around to thank the audience and throw drum stick, water bottles etc at us. I really got the feeling that the loved playing for us and they seemed a lot more down to earth than I expected. a lot of people say Maynard look really bored on stage and like he's bothered by the audience standing there, but I didn't get that impression at all. sure, he keeps to the back and doesn't do much. barely talks even. but he looked like he had a good time.

anyways, here's the setlist... same as always it seems...

Lost Keys
Rosetta Stoned
Stinkfist
Forty Six & 2
Jambi
Schism
Right In Two
Sober
Lateralus
---short break where the band just sat down looking at the crowd---
Vicarious
Aenema

Post by: lostpilot on Jun 09, 2006, 11:28 AM
today i had such a great event, i want to share it with you.
yesterday we were celebrating, and as always i got seriously drunk without no food. me and my friend usually drink in simple way - 0.7 l of vodka and one by one we end it by first sit. so, here we are, enjoying the whole party whatever. others from time to time went to sleep a bit but me and my friend simply stayed up all night long. and so, the party is over, we're driven home.
then because of the lack of sleep [i guess so] i started hearing voices. simply voices of the people i have been celebrating with, and even though they-re in the same car, i can see that they sit silent, i hear their voices. then in the moment i thought i fell asleep and now all i hear is a dream.. but suddenly i understood that i am awake. we get back, they let me go about 15 minutes away from home by foot, so i turn on some music and walk home [voices are still here, awful].
of course my condition is really awful, but i walk the streets until i get home and go to sleep. because i needed some sleep badly, no sleep in 48 hours and intense emotions/intense living/drinking. so, i go to sleep with my mp3 player listening to tool.. i fall asleep, sleep for some two hours and there's that bad dream with my friends whatever. and the strangest thing is that i remember that dream.. all being drunk whatever.. so.
i wake up then and i hear something beautiful on my headphones. something i haven't heard and something definately tool. and i see on the lcd that this is flood/disgustipated. and then i understand what kind of good song is that, because it simply woke me up and just.. i can't tell how it made me feel, but that feeling was very good.
and when the disgustipated started playing and i heard about all the.. holocaust.. i were so stunned by the song..
well, i hope you got what i've meant. tool forever guys, tool forever.

Post by: Chrisbo on Jun 12, 2006, 09:41 PM
OK Tool last night in Glasgow, what can I say it was absolutely immense! The sound was out of this world and everything was perfect! Only one small thing, thought they might have played a little longer seeing as it was Tool and all, but then who's to complain, this was Tool I was seeing haha!

The queue outside before the doors opened seriously went right around the corner and way down to the bottom of the street and most likely round the another corner haha! The doors opened 45 minutes late, probably because there was no support band, so got in at a quarter to 8! Just got a little spot close to the front, maybe 3 or 4 rows back! The band didnt come on until ten past 9, so it was quite a long wait but it was well worth it! They just straight opened with Rosetta Stoned and the sound was so good! Maynard was looking pretty normal for once haha! And his voice was excellent! And like aenemic was saying, the band looked like they were really enjoying the gig, but the biggest surprise was that Maynard even spoke to the crowd quite a few times - "We've got a new album out, 10,000 Days...it's selling pretty well in Belgium....which is good news....I suppose! There was one point where he actually stepped forward and got the crowd all riled up by saying "You dont sound very entused....can I get an AMEN!....can I get a HALLELUJAH!...can I get a JESUS FRICKING CHRIST! and then they played a small extended intro to Right In Two (my highlight of the night)!

Danny is a fucking tank too I've realised haha! He came out to the front after Lateralus in his Lakers vest/top thing and chucked some sticks out to the crowd (someone on the balcony caught a pair but clumsily dropped them to the crowds amusement). In fact in the middle of one of the songs he actually chucked a drum stick out as well, everyone was like where the fuck did that come from haha! His drum playing is just amazing! That little rythm he has in the middle of 'Lateralus' fucks with my mind so much! They're all amazing musicians, and I never had any doubt about it, but seeing it in the flesh/live is just something else! And just before they finished with 'Ćnema' Maynard says to the crowd 'See you soon' - I hope that's a promise!

The setlist was as follows:

Rosetta Stoned
Stinkfist
Forty Six & 2
Jambi
Schism
Right In Two (with extended intro, which included bits of Intension)
Sober
Lateralus
Vicarious (with extended intro, which included bits of 10,000 Days)
Aenema

Oh, and something else, before Tool came on some people in front of me started a 'Mon The Biffy' chant and I was all like 'WTF?' Then I looked up and saw Simon Niel from Biffy Clyro was on the balcony hehe!

Oh my god, I cant believe I almost forgot to mention this as well! Got to meet Justin outside the back of the venue (where I met Stef the other night) and got a signed ticket by the man! That was great, just told him how the set was amazing and he was all appreciative! Unfortunately no pictures with him (and no pics live, it's Tool, do they ever allow cameras?) but here's my signed ticket (he signed it upside down haha)

(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j292/Kidtones/SignedToolTicket.jpg)

Apparently Maynard came out later as well, but we had to run to catch the last goddamn bus back! Oh well, 2 of my top 3 gigs in 3 days, I'm overwhelmed haha!

Haha thanks dude, guess after meeting Stef there the other day, we knew where to wait, but it seemed like Justin was out not long after we got out the venue! Twas awesome! I'm probably gonna remember more stuff as time goes by haha! Dude the gig is gonna be awesome no doubts! Just dont bother bringing any form of camera or that, it'll get taken off you! Oh and even if you have a phone with camera or audio recorder the security will tell you to put it away! Just makes you enjoy the gig more without having to worry about pictures and such!

Haha, nah he was cool, there was no brainwashing (at least I think not, how would I know haha)! He wasnt really speaking much, he just signed the tickets and said 'Thank you' to all the kind comments and that, which is cool! I think I know what you mean though, Stef just seems like a nice easy going guy who'll talk any kind of bullshit with you haha!

Hope you have a good time tonight Gaz, and watch out for Maynards spikey mohican/mohawk (I forget which one is which) haha! And yeah, you too Trav, you have a good one tomorrow as well man!  :)

Just got back home from London, Tool were immense, fucking immense. The setlist was the same as Glasgow, but it was a really amazing show, the stage set up was fantastic, and it was LOUD and I mean LOUD!, the bass felt like it was gonna crush my rib cage it was that heavy!, I recorded Jambi in full on my phone, I'll stick it on youtube later, Maynard also cracked the "We have a new album out, I heard it's doing great in Belgium...so thats good to know" line.

All in all it was well worth the trip up to London!

Great set, sounded awesome. Maynard was outstanding and looked the fucking man 'strutting his stuff'. Same kind of setlist as Chrisbos show. I missed the first couple songs cause we had some bad fucking luck with trains and stuff. I think they said something about coming back in November.

The whole thing was kind of a blur. Felt like it lasted 20 mins. After the show we ended up missing our last train home (even more bad luck with fucking trains) so just stayed in London over night walking about and doing a bit of sight seeing.

I did see some guy tripping on acid though. His mates were trying to help him and he was trying to climb the walls and shit. Crazy. The last place I would take mind altering drugs would be in a crowded, hot room.

> I didn't know if you people knew this. But, If you burn both Viginti Tres followed by Wings for
> marie .. Then, play that track as one with 10,000 days as another track and play both at the
> same time, Both Wings for Marie AND 10,000 days sync ! It is incredible ! It is like an 8
> piece band but it all FLOWS ! It flows like one song.. It is the most unique and incredible
> thing I have ever heard in my life.. BadA$$ ! The vocals, drums, the guitar riffs, everything
> flows ! Both songs get heavy at the same point at 9 minutes and 14 seconds in, it is magical !

OK, it's not old for me, and Tool seems to have already done things like that ? What other "tips" can you give me, cause I'm pretty interested...

yeah lateralus is surely epic. though, when i'm listening to it i am always skipping ticks and leeches. i dont know, it just does not fit into whole lateralus. if the grudge wouldn't be the album opener song I would skip it too.
but then the album would be made only with 5 songs
eon blue apocalypse/the patient
mantra/schism
parabol(a)
lateralus
triad (disposition+reflection+triad)

Reflection has always been my favorite too. but you have to listen to Disposition first for full effect. my cd got a bit scrathed though, so exactly at my favorite part in Reflection it usually skips a bit. fucking annoying...

Lateralus and Ticks & Leeches are awesome songs too and I've spent many hours trying to figure out and play the drums to those.

I smoked a joint with Justin when they came to Auckland touring Aenima, he was sayin then that the rest of them are only occasional users of anthing bar alcohol, Danny Carey is a full on piss head though, and Lateralus on Vinyl is the shiznit the anolog sound captures the energy so damn well, anyone who hasn't experienced the greats on vinyl is missing out something hectic!
Lateralus is tools best album 4 me just and faaip de ooid or what ever, The Voice Of God, that gets a little annoying.... why do tool put those in to there albums i wonder? oh well Ticks and Leeches is fucking amazing drums i think Danny's best.

Saw Tool saturday night on Roskilde Festival ! Fucking amazing !

Setlist:
Stinkfist
The Pot
Forty Six & 2
Jambi (when he started playing the riff i nearly creamed in my pants)
Schism (!)
Rosetta Stoned (!)
Sober
Opiate
Lateralus (!)
Vicarious
Ćnema (!)

Easily the best show i've seen. It was just ... Amzing as hell. I can't describe it. Maynard was in a good move, joking, running around a bit, doing this little weird dance. And Danny was amazing as always. That guy is insane.

The concert gets 6 out of 6 Lips !

I think I'm just gonna get my isp to help, since i see them at least once a week anyway. Except one guy's wife just blew her brains out sunday, the day after we hung out with her and took her gun she snuck back in the house while we were gone, stole it, and waited for him to get out of the shower then BOOM right in his fucking face. Sounded pretty horendous.

i never heard much shit about the new album from the band, just little interviews here and there, but i don't remember the album title being discussed...

anywho, yeah that's right it was 27 years or something like that which is about 10,000 days, and '10,000 days in the fire is long enough' makes it damn obvious that the "fire" would be her being paralyzed, that is, if the album title has anything to do with his mom. never know with tool, it could be total bullshit, maybe the days until they release the vicarious video, how much days in a row they jacked off, or how long maynards mom was paralyzed. who knows for sure, even if they say something it could be a lie

It's amazing how seeing someone live can change your whole look on a band. I've never loved tool this much.

I tend to disagree. I was a bit disappointed when seeing them live... They were juet too perfect, it was too impersonal for me ! I mean, look at a deftones show : nearly every show is different from another one. But every tool show looks just the same. Everything is too calculated, too clean. I was disappointed. It was still a fucking hugely solid show, but I was disappointed... :-\

I finally decided to buy myself Lateralus and I saw that I have a version with the song Lateralus (yes lateral_U_s). I always thought it was Lateralis. My friend's copy has Lateralis.

is there any story behind this or is it just a "mistake" or just a re-edition with a useless change of name?

i believe they went for a long period of time eating mushrooms every day


and they were heavy into drugs when they were younger, like heroine

hence the album title, undertow


i didnt watch that interview yet, i will now. but it might be the interview i have where it shows maynards giving interviews throughout the years. and the one from back in the day. hes so fuckign scary looking, he has a strange black hat on, and he just looks really pale and sad\scary.

As for the new album I highly doubt it will be out in less than 3 years.
I agree with that, I mean, it's not like we have to wait for Maynard to do APC anymore, but it is still Tool, and who knows, maybe Maynard wants to go work on the Puscifier album, so we might have to wait for him to do that.

Freese said that?  I could see Billy saying that, but Freese?  Either way, APC was awesome, but they're nothing to me without Maynard.  So does anyone like Puscifer (based on two songs)?  I hope Maynard takes a LITTLE time off to do an album w/o a tour.

i think the reason i like dave so much is because he tells jokes, in a way one of my friends would. like hes somebody id chill with, hes my kinda guy, u know what i mean?


he has a joke about a drunk bitch too.

he says. i was in a bar late one night, having a couple drinks. and i look and see a young lady who was pretty good looking, so i figure, why not annoy the shit out of her. so i go over, and i see that she has a black eye. i already know, she must not be a good listener

Ordered my Tool tickets for Manchester UK on the pre-sale yesterday, Ł28.00 each plus Ł4.50 postage.

A bit pricey for me, I'm kinda skint at the mo but I do wanna see them quite badly but its the same price as Metallica was... and metallica do an 'alf give your moneys worth... see how i feel on pay day soon lol

i thought the same, but in the end i think its worth it, but yeah Metallica rock the shit! gonna order mine too.

well two diff sounds, maynard has wrote about pc, and how its him growing artistically... i respect that.. but i do like alot of the concept behind the music of tool... on the other hand, some songs by pc are really really awesome.. im not too much into the heavy sounds

lateralus isn't heavy, and it's wayyy better than the apc releases, which are also pretty good
well, vida_mae has her opinion, you have yours. respect that ;) peace

Btw, I prefer A Perfect Circle actually.. Sleeping Beauty and Passive! Great shit! :D
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Sanzen on Aug 07, 2006, 10:49 AM

No.. great shit by APC would be:

Orestes
Brena
3 Libras
The Hollow
Gravity
The Noose
Vanishing
A Stranger

Their songs that are dominated by moody, melodic elements are best.

That's not an opinion..  it's fact.

Title: Re: tool
Post by: Chrisbo on Aug 07, 2006, 02:37 PM
A Perfect Circle is a great band, but Tool just interests me alot more.

And I would agree with Sanzen when he says the songs that are dominated by moodiness are better, hence why I prefer 13th Step to Mer De Noms. The Noose is for me, by far their best song, it's perfect!

Anyway yes, my bro is going to get Tool tickets right now, woohoo!

It's all good man, I'm just really fucking jealous but Tool will come here soon, they always do on an album release/tour.

Patience is a virtue, just promise me a full review.

Have a mosh for me plz k?
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Chrisbo on Aug 10, 2006, 05:55 PM
Haha man, no worries man! It's going to be great to see them in such a big place, they're definitely going to play for longer than they did the last time. Hopefully they'll play a few of my favourites like The Patient or H or Pushit. One of those three will be good enough for me!

And yeah man, I'm gonna rock out like a bitch!

Indeed, I have a feeling they will adjust the set list for the UK Winter Tour, maybe they could play for longer? they are playing larger venues after all.

Well it says in the leaflet it was written by Danny Lohner/Maynard/Trent Reznor/Billy, so I'm guessing it was probably originally intended for the Tapeworm project.

Isis are a great band, one of my top 5 ever I'd say. I saw them last year and they were amazing, that's all that needs to be said, so that's why I'm so fucking jealous that you guys are getting such a great show!

i read that the guitarist from Metallica jammed with Tool in Hawaii, but he was drunk as fuck and messed up the "sober" solo part.

and yeah Isis are pretty good.

Tool is my favorite band, I own all of the albums including Salival and one Bootleg (Tales from the Darkside).

the show was fucking AMAZING, the whole band aced EVERYTHING. maynard sounded better than he does on record, i wasnt expecting much from him cuz of what ive seen and heard on bootlegs, but holyfuck did he blow my mind, didnt miss a single note or anything. my mind is still blown and i watched the show completely sober.

Then again, meeting Justin was just a stroke of luck, right place at the right time. Fucking Maynard came out later as well, after I had to leave for the last bus home, which is a bit gutting. Imagine meeting Maynard!

I met him when he played here.

Strange dude indeed, at the time he had just done an interview with a local mag and had really let loose at the corporate music industry and musicians riding the corporate band wagon which was classic and eliquent Maynard but when we met him he was dressed in a suit and pretty much fobbed off ten or more fans because he had to meet with a room full of corporates and one of my mates told him he was a hypocrit and full of shit for being so rude to his fans.

We got kicked out by security.

On a lighter note Danny was fucking rad and really friendly as was Adam Jones although he was slightly more shy.

And yes...Maynard is a midgit.
Title: Re: tool
Post by: Sleep on Aug 29, 2006, 09:39 PM
Haha, what an arrogant prick, however, such talented musicians.  A friend of mine met Danny too and said he was totally awesome.  I guess Maynard's ego is trying to compensate for something...

I really don't like Maynard as a person, like the way he treats his fans is just warped, but I really respect him as a musician.  I suppose I can like a person's talents without liking them as people.   ::)  BTW, Tool was amazing to see live, but we already knew that.
