  • Tool - What am I missing?

    Ok Tool fans, point me to the good tunes...

    A friend let me borrow (I know I am going to slaughter these names) "Lateralus" & "Aenima"

    I have heard the drummer is good, I tried listening to a few songs on these albums but they just dont do anything for me.

    Doesnt help that I dont like the singers voice much...any chance at repemption here? I would hate to pass up the chance at hearing a good musician...

    Lateralus: Grudge and...that 7th track.

    I haven't heared the other disc, but Stinkfist is a good song...

    Tool...what a bunch of tools...or just...

      I think you should listen to "ticks and leeches" which is track #8 on lateralus. for their new songs, I'd say it is a more versatile one than the rest. At first you've got a jungle-type tom part and then the precise double bass comes in. then, you've got a kind of shuffle jazzy sounding thing. Tool is my favorite band and danny carey is my idol. Some people like them and some people don't. If they're not your cup of tea, you can't force yourself to like them. Try this; go back, listen to the whole lateralus cd all the way through with an open mind, listen to the lyrics, and just try to take it in and relax. Their music is a spiritual experience for me in a sense. If you listen all the way from track #1 to #13 you will notice that there is never just a gap where 2 songs don't mix;It's almost as if the whole album is a story. I think their new album is all about being open in every aspect of your life, especially spiritually. just listen to it with an open mind and feel it, not just hear it.

            Yes, Danny Carrey is an immensely amazing drummer. The odd time fills on the "lateralus" cd (I love "Schism") are some of his best..

              Listen to both albums all the way through. You'll be amazed. AENIMA and Lateralus are great albums.

              If you're looking for songs in particular, check out:
              Eulogy, H, 46 & 2, Hooker with a Penis, Third Eye
              The Grudge, Parabol, Parabola, Lateralis

                I used to be a huge Tool fan (wow, you could really mis-interperet that )

                I dont listen as much now...however...


                When I listen to Lateralus, I listen to "The Grudge" then I stop the CD, then I say "damn!"

                They get a thumbs up from me.

                        The Grudge is freakin great!
                        I love the most complex Tool songs, like Third Eye (the best Tool number IMO) The Grudge, and Pu****************...

                          what it does is give whiny wanna be outcasts a little exclusive club to belong to. then they can sit around arguing about what maynard is 'really singing about'. then they can talk about all the cool creepy dark imagry, and the deep spirutal element to tools music.

                            well, tool does has a bit of depth - at least they're not doing it about limp bizkit or metallica. you want to talk about foolishness?
