Who is this??!
Been a Tool fan since the 90’s and this...this is on my worst music ever. The album has one good song. nothing that stands out like “The Pot” or “Parabola”. This makes me said that this whole “album” is full of “filler” music.
Descending, Invincible, Pnuema, Fear Innoculum, 7empest are all stand outs. Completely worth the wait. Best live arena performance I've ever seen as well.
I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but...
I think 5 songs on here (out of the 6 full tracks) are in my all time top 10 TOOL tracks. Invincible doesn’t quite make the list but everything else is absolute perfection. People are calling this Lateralus B-Sides... funny because this is a more complete album in my opinion, so why would they save some of the best songs for 13 years? And the entire album has a cohesive feel and vibe about it. The entire album is very hypnotic and doesn’t flow within Lateralus. Anyway, this is absolutely album of the decade and well inside the top 2 TOOL albums of all time, and TOOL is with-zero-doubt the best musicians since the 70’s, and maybe ever. I’m so glad I was born in ‘83 and aren’t any younger! On everything.
This album from start to finish is mind blowing. A true masterpiece. You can listen to it 20 times and hear something different each time. You wouldn’t think there would be anywhere to go with a band that started out amazing, but TOOL brings it to the next level with every album.
I’m a big Tool fan and this was such a huge disappointment. The long wait and hype had nothing to do with the poor review I give to by far their most bland album. You might as well be listening to a sound machine the music is so mind numbingly boring. All the songs might as well be the same as well cause they certainly sound like they do. Don’t waste your time or money, this ones a dud.
The the feel it
Going to buy CD so I can touch it and lick it ! I bought one of the first CD|DVD videos with misspelled lettering freaking awesome just. Waiting to go to store to bring back the old school feeling of of going to store and owning music in a physical form .........Tool
