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...

lemin (lemin), Thursday, 21 April 2005 03:56 (fourteen years ago) link

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?

daria g (daria g), Thursday, 21 April 2005 04:15 (fourteen years ago) link

I really dislike Maynard's voice

Seuss, Thursday, 21 April 2005 04:20 (fourteen years ago) link

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.

Myonga Von Bontee (Myonga Von Bontee), Thursday, 21 April 2005 05:11 (fourteen years ago) link

all their cds have great packaging. all their singles have great videos.
the band has a great singer. the singer has a great band. they are amazing live. they sing songs about things that I only half think I understand and I still love them to death. CLASSIC! CLASSIC! CLASSIC!

VegemiteGrrl (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 21 April 2005 05:36 (fourteen years ago) link

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.

Maynard is one of my favorite singers out on the scene right now and Undertow is flat-out godly. CLASSIC.

The Ghost of Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 21 April 2005 12:16 (fourteen years ago) link

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 (fourteen years ago) link

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 (fourteen years ago) link

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 (fourteen years ago) link

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.

But what if you got into them when you were 22 in 1993?

As for being metal or not, my ex said they reminded her of late eighties Metallica most of all.

I just get incredibly depressed by Tool, and not in a good Esoteric/Swans/Joy Division/Darkthrone way. It's all so predicable, self-absorbed, calculated, easy, mindnumbing - lacking life in all possible ways.

i'm guessing the caution has to do with the fact that this is some anonymous Twitter account ? I mean this seems pretty believable to me, I don't really know jack about Tool but even I know the stories surrounding Maynard which are very very similar to this one.

frogbs, Tuesday, 26 June 2018 17:58 (one year ago) link

Yeah, it's possible some outlets are trying to get in touch, hear from MJK's reps, whatever. I noticed Kim Kelly mentioned it on her feed so it's definitely getting out there.

A reporter would probably want to speak to the tweeter (even if agreeing to keep her anonymous) before writing it up. The fact that she doesn't name the city also complicates things, as a reporter can't put the musician's reps on the spot re: what he remembers doing during NiN's set that year in that particular city, etc. But, again, this may also inspire others to come forward (on the record).

A woman I knew in college talked about how the guitar player of a well-known band hit on her when she was a high-school senior visiting the college, and the band was there playing Spring Weekend. She was still pretty disgusted by it, a few years later. (And this band was as far as it's possible to get from a swaggering, cock-rock type band... not that that matters.)

https://www.reddit.com/r/ToolBand/comments/8trvn3/woman_on_twitter_accuses_maynard_of_sexually/e1a50qc/

Passes for Maynard are different than the normal backstage pass for the show. A couple examples I can think of (and one I own that I received personally when they were out of normal ones) has a collage of women in KISS makeup sucking dick or other sexual acts. An APC one had a picture of Maynard in Roman garb that said "Have you serviced your gladiator today?" or something similar. There are no illusions about what you are there for.

and

Maynard makes an appearance in the room, might make some chitchat, and then leaves. His security staff will then approach whichever 1 or 2 women that Maynard has selected for the night

Oh, that makes sense. Either way this way has toured all over the US and there are states where it’s up to 30 years for rape allegations. If he’s actually raped someone 20 years ago and got away with it, I suppose it wasn’t a one time thing.

I don’t know enough about US law but even if theres stature of limitations could her testimony help a more recent case against him?

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 28 June 2018 22:43 (one year ago) link

Hrm. The whole thing is gross and sad but several people have pointed this out:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DgwSiMKWsAAEWh5.jpg

So basically someone (also anonymous) responded to the Keenan accuser’s Twitter claiming they were raped by Trent Reznor in 1994. Thing is, both accounts were created within an hour of each other. And strangely the Reznor accuser’s account (which has no other tweets) was actually created just *before* the Keenan one.

After people started noticing this the Reznor accuser account deleted their comment. Not definitive proof but it seems fishy and indicates an attempt to create an impression of support and to sow further chaos.

I’ve heard rumblings about this being 4chan related—the Keenan account wasn’t noticed by most people for days but supposedly there was stuff about it in 4chan almost immediately after it went up. If you’re wondering about the kind of sick fucks who actually would go out of their way to set all this up, there’s your answer.

In any case it’s ugly business all around.

Continuing to believe the victims, as always, but even if it’s not what’s going on here the idea of 4chan goons making false accusations to poison the well is so out of my frame of reference, and yet so immediately plausible as something they’d do, that I’m suddenly kind of nauseous.

Or anything that didn’t make him sound guilty as f.

Here’s the thing — if he has truly had as many “consensual” (or so he believed) backstage encounters as seems to be whispered/alleged, I bet he has been wondering if an allegation like this would surface at some point, and he’s sweating it now. Just conjecture, of course.

I still give Lateralus the occasional spin but it's about ten years too late for me to give that much of a shit about this one.
