You can download the new Tool single Vicarious now. I got it off a bittorrent download here: http://www.mininova.org/tor/281821

Adams guitar playing is even better, Maynards vocals sound "different" thats the only way I know how to describe it. They said before about a Meshuggah influence on this album and that is very evident on this song and the end is very crimsonic. Needless to say I immediately ordered the album (and Pearl Jam's new one) so I hope I will get on or around the set releasedate of may 1st.

It's okay, I guess... Guess my interest in this kind of music has waned over the years, although I did like Aenema and Lateralus.

Heard this yesterday.

First Tool song I've heard. Quite enjoyable. Some rather interesting time signatures nestled in there...

It sounds EXACTLY like their past two albums and has no variation whatsoever.

I like Tool. But they aren't popular because of the people who dig their music and their playing. It's the coindexters who write the lyrics on their arms and shit.. along with various symbols.

And they also make great videos.

Yes, but this isn't a bad thing necessarily.

I know.
But I'll wait with listening until the cd appears on my doormat.
Nothing quite the same like discovering new Tool music complete with the package! 8)

What strikes me about the artwork is that it seems to be a continuation of the dissectional art of Lateralus ('spiral out!') but it leaves all the other albums in the dust art-wise. It's also good to see proper pictures of the bandmembers again, which hasn't happened since Undertow.

The album is way more difficult to make something out of it at face value than with Lateralus and Aenima. It has more or less the same kinds of ideas, but it's hard to find hooks because the songs are literally crammed with riffs and moods. Obvious standouts for me at this point are, besides Vicarious, Jambi (great opening riffs!!), The Pot, Lost Keys/Rosetta Stoned and Right In Two. I love the absence of filler material this time (Only Viginti Tres makes a claim to deserve that accolade, but it's placed conveniently at the end).

Well, I heard Tool's latest at a friends house yesterday, but I must admit this album left me flat upon first hearing. It's okay, I guess, but it didn't really do anything for me. I know some of their stuff gets better when you hear it several times, but nothing I heard yesterday really inspires me to go to the store and buy it. The artwork and packaging is really cool, though.

Of course, my own tastes in music have also changed since Lateralus came out.

Wait! By that do you mean both "Ænima" and "Lateralus"? Because "Lateralus" did even come close to "Ænima" at all unless I'm missing something altogether.

And we can both easilily hear that their production was fabricated on Macs and PCs because no sound can stop that fast unless it's a computer doing the production which fucks up the authenticity of any musician. No matter how digital production tries to mimic analog production it just can't manage to fake it convincingly.

I used to be really into Tool, but that was awhile ago. I'm still not sure if I'm going to pick up the album or not. I haven't heard it yet, but a friend of mine showed me the packaging the other day. It's great, but does the music match the strength of how it's packaged?

Yes. Tool sure know how to run it into the ground and 10,000 Days is no different. It is projected to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and sell between 600-650,000 copies in the US by next week.

Yes it does. It takes a while to soak it all up, but it's getting better with each time.
Standouts at this point are The Pot, Jambi & Lost Keys/Rosetta Stoned, but I still have to 'work' at getting to know the rest.

The only cut I've heard is "Vicarious" and it's like a "Lateralus, part 2" cut that doesn't go anywhere. If someone else played it I'd move a little to it but I can't imagine myself reaching for it to play it.

Vicarious isn't representive of the album, dude :)
It's an obvious 'hey, we're back'-song and a cool one with that.

Bought the new Tool, Ministry and Pearl Jam the day they came out (this past tuesday).

Tool: I "e-attained" it a couple weeks back, knowing full well I was going to buy it anyway. It is a great disc which I already like much more than Lateralus (which I really enjoy). 10,000 Days is hypnotic, trippy and heavy. I can definetly hear the Meshugga influence, but it also screams King Crimson as well. Throw in a pinch of Pink Floyd and you have a fairly good idea. Vicarious is a good song and great choice for a single, but not representative of the disc as a whole. As far as the packaging goes, Adam outdid himself with this one. Standout tracks for me are 10,000 Days, Jambi, Rosetta Stoned, The Pot and Right In Two. I sat down the other night, turned off all the lights, drank a bottle of wine and listened to this disc. Almost right after the track 10,000 days started, so did a thunderstorm. Couldn't have had a better listening experience.

Ministry: They have finally returned to the form they established with The Land of Rape And Honey, The Mind is a Terrible Thing To Taste and Psalm 69. And much like N.W.O. off Psalm 69, they call Bush into question, only this time it's Jr. Very political, very heavy album. Standout tracks: Rio Grande Blood, Gangreen, The Great Satan and Khyber Pass.

Pearl Jam: I'm still undecided, but after two listens I already like it better than Riot Act and Binaural. Exactly. The single, World Wide Suicide is one of the better songs on the disc. I need to sit and listen to this more.

I love the packaging of 10.000 Days but it's a bitch to get the cd out of the housing :x .

Why did it take me that long to get to know this band?
