TOOL - C/D!?

Hmm personally I think they're amazing. They have inspiring lyrics and a whole array of emotions. I've been branching out, but Tool is definitely the core of my music kingdom. I've got every song memorized and every time I listen to them I get a new perspective from the song. Tell me if you agree or disagree!

C!! Bring on the Occult Gay Movement!! There's all kinds of reasons to say why they're Classic...but I'd blather on for too long as usual, so I'll just say put on 'Prison Sex' and you will find your answers. Or any other damn song you choose. Me likey the Tool.

Wow, that review was a horrible review. Not only did it not describe a single flaw of Tool - besides some moron listens to it and does not know what it is talking about in the least - but instead makes fun of what "tool" means in the dictionary and defines their sound as "wanking sludge."

As far as "electronics and industry," their only song is NOT "Stinkfist". Tell me where they use keyboards and high-pitched squealing. Industry is just one part of the whole. Songs like "46&2" have intros that are industrial ("Useful Idiot"), and Third Eye has a little in the background. They have many different designs to each song. They have originality, and character. I would love to see you compose something as brilliant and definitive as Tool. Have you tried? Have you listened to the lyrics either? How well they match with the music?

As far as "opus," just because they use the whole CD doesn't mean that it's an opus. It's just a CD, like any other CD you pick up. It does not delineate all of their music.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving all these opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral
of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...

I like that their fans have shirts that say "Tool" on them. I don't get Tool, although I think Maynard is an interesting guy. I listened to part of that Mastodon record today at a shop and thought, hmm, is this kind of what Tool sounds like? Like.. uh.. a halfway decent speed metal band trapped in a glue factory.

I feel like this record was made just for me by super-smart aliens or something... It's the best Tool record because it's the longest.

This Pitchfork review is utterly classic in every way. Does Brent D still write record reviews anywhere?

Seuss, Thursday, 21 April 2005 04:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I love Maynard's voice. The "so glad to see you... came out to watch you play..." parts of "Third Eye" pretty much sum up why I love him as a singer. They really found a cool vocal production style on Aenima. Thats such a great record. They really stepped it up all the way around on that one. I like Lateralus too. I don't really care much for Undertow or Opiate though.

One of the coolest-packaged CDs I've ever seen, and consequently one of the very few I keep for extramusical reasons, since the sounds contained within are entirely without interest.

VegemiteGrrl (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 21 April 2005 05:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

they've just gotten so tedious. stuff that's pre-aenima is listenable, but their last is just awful. it is indeed "wanking sludge".

also, i disagree about their live shows. Stinkfist is the only song I remember as being a good live experience. for the most part, you coulda just thrown on the cd and played it really really loudly.

pushit on salival is a huge exception, of course.

this is also another band vs fans group.

Their wank opus is classic. I never listen to the old stuff. Come to think of it, I'm not sure how often I actually listen to "Lateralus," either, but whenever I put it on I hear all sorts of cool stuff that makes me want to pay closer attention the next time I put it on.

That Pitchfork review is hilarious, and in my mind every bit as classic as Dave Q.'s Yes assessment.

Josh in Chicago (Josh in Chicago), Thursday, 21 April 2005 12:53 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Aenima's the one for me. Lateralus' math-metal wank is great too, but I haven't listened to it for a long time. Now I want to, though!

Jordan (Jordan), Thursday, 21 April 2005 13:02 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Classic.

Tool helped get me through high school. I'll always love them for that.

That Brent DiCrescenzo Pitchfork review of Lateralus linked above...jesus that's awful. That's wayyyyy more of a wankfest than any Tool record.

The Something Awful Dr. David Thorpe thing, however, is funny. Tool do have some hilariously overzealous fans, that's for sure! But the music's pretty good, if you like proggy metal stuff.

TOOL are amazing! One thing i have to thank my ex girlfriend for is getting me into TOOL. They are one of the most psychedelic bands i have ever heard and the lyrics are ultra-intelligent too. Maynard's vocab is superb. The more prog the better. Aenema is one of my favourite albums and it has some serious psychedelic moments, especially on 'Pushit'. I fell in love with Lateralus when i first bought it. Theres that amazing quiet psychedelic chord sequence in 'Ticks and leeches'. And 'Lateralus' has an amazing riff, its all top quality drop D (Mostly) guitar work. I too have the Aenema hologram cd. Undertow is definitely the album u could call metal but the others i don't like to label them metal. I'd call them prog hard rock. So yeh, CLASSIC!

Morgman (Morg), Thursday, 21 April 2005 18:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Dud, they're just trying too hard to be taken seriously. Dull and dreary, wallowing in self-pity, writing "deep", "abstract" lyrics - they're the kind of band adolescents graduate to after 3 years of Limp Bizkit fandom and start really getting into the philosophy behind "The Matrix". And why they're considered metal in any way is still a mystery to me - not every rock band with loud guitars plays metal.

Was actually on a Tool kick after attending a goth themed birthday party where, by the end of it, the DJs just kept dropping Tool and NIN tracks. 10,000 days surprised me - I recalled liking it more than Lateralus. Felt more emotionally charged. Aenima + Lateralus + 10,000 Days is a hell of a trilogy with the latter album being a solid "Eulogy" for the band. Probably fitting they don't release any more music at this point.

I assume they are working on a new album. they've been touring and Maynard is going to tour A Perfect Circle, so either they are getting their voice and chops in order, or they've just been sharpened and they want to show them off.

One of favourite gig memories is them opening with Third Eye at the old Astoria, with Maynard painted entirely blue and eyes drawn all down his spine.
In that same gig, someone charged the stage and Maynard threw him, pinned him to the deck and didn't miss a note.

My preferred 10,000 Days tracklist:

1. Vicarious
2. Wings for Marie, Part 1
3. 10,000 Days (Wings, Part 2)
4. Lipan Conjuring
5. Jambi
6. Intension
7. Right in Two

This keeps the original structure of two almost-equal halves divided by that little rain dance, but loses the silly 'The Pot', 'Lost Keys' and the very boring 'Rosetta Stoned' which just goes on and on but never goes anywhere.

Pretty much a perfect album in this configuration.

That would make a consistent 37-minute psychedelic Tool album and be kind of like one long piece.

Maynard on the Joe Rogan podcast - http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/maynard-james-keenan-2

The Tool writing process was new to me, in that Danny, Adam and Justin clearly take aaages to write, and this clearly frustrates Maynard - to the point that he basically leaves them to it, and waits until the foundations are laid before adding his writing. Also didn't know he'd had a new hip. And owned a restaurant.
