So I just barely got my hands on this record and I must say, it is the best fucking Tool record yet. I haven't heard a record this challenging come from the genre of distorted guitars since the 1990s. I wish this whole emo shit would die, and bands like the red jump suit apparatus would quit deceiving the youth into believing they have any kind of edge. I miss the days when playing your guitar too fucking loud actually meant something..... this record brings it back for real.

heh.

yeah, this record is listenable, nothing special. certainly tool's worst. it's like the worst of tool, in fact. i always heard that about tool "boring part after boring part that doesn't really go anywhere." i always defended them, "No, the songs tell a story!!!" ... and they did. until 10,000 days.

it's got some cool tracks, the first song/single is surprisingly great. but damn if this album doesn't fucking draaaaaaaaaag...

I actually enjoyed the "draaaaaag" and it was part of why I liked this record more.

I dont know what planet you are on, the album is great but it isn't their best work, lateralus still holds that title.

you clearly didn't read my post.

i didn't say the albums told a story, i was talking about the songs themselves. the way the parts flow together. 10,000 days feel very disconnected.. boring part after boring part.

obviously, aenima is their best work. shit... pushit, aenema, stinkfist, eulogy, 46 and 2, h, third eye.. fucking amazing.

Aenima is their only worthwhile album. Undertow gets nostalgia points but not enough.

Lateralus and 10,000 Days blew.

10,000 Days ain't bad. "Vicarious" pretty much rules.

Its my favourite tool record. The last track is alittle pointless. But its a good solid record.

I wish people would stop encouraging these prog blowhards. Same goes for Mars Volta. Booooring.

Aenima's got some killer tracks but it suffers some pretty obvious filler.

"(-) Ions" is just pointless.

Actually, I really like ions.. I mean, I skip it now, it's a bit too long, but it makes my ears buzz.

"Useful Idiot," "Message To Harry Manback," "Intermission," "Die Eier Von Satan" and "Ions" just cut up the mood of the album for me. They don't help with the leading into the next song and they sure as hell don't stand alone so what's the point?

to be honest, i have a problem with an album where you actually look through some sort of magnifying glasses to see the inlay card in some sort of shitty 3D, i just think the over elaborate cover is making up for something.
