  1. Hahaha exactly where I bailed too.. Apart from Gil Scott-Heron which kind of sounded familiar I didn't recognise a single band until her, and I didn't recognise her name for her music. Am I old?
  2. Given it about a dozen spins now and though it is awesome, every song on this album except for Culling Voices I feel over stays its welcome, you can almost hear the moment a song loses it theme 5:50 in the title track or when it should end like 12:44 in Tempest. Word is the production is technically brilliant, but I think they needed a producer with some balls to rein them in and strip away some of the Tool-by-numbers and would have been a truly epic album. On further listens Invincible and Tempest are now my 2 favourite tracks, though as said before Invincible does get a bit monontous though I do understand is relevant to the subject matter, jut feel that every previous album I would not change a thing where this I feel I could.
  3. Quick review after 4 or 5 listens.. Think there is a brilliant album buried under all the Tool-by-numbers/Toolisms. Fear Inocolum - Starts off with a brilliant theme then halfway through is completely gone never to be heard again, replaced with Tool tumbling/rumbling riffs and drums. Pneuma - Starts with a cool guitar, and cool riff at 9:20 for just 10 seconds, but instead more tumbling/rumbling. Invincible - In the car have a subbie and sounds AWESOME but without it does get a bit monotonous. Descending - These 2 back to back with both having long sections of dum dum.. dum dum.. dum dum.. and again has an awesome dualling guitar section briefly and then more tool tumbling/rumbling. Culling Voice - I actually really enjoy and love the bluesy touches as in Fear Incolum, and this could have done with a bit more Toolisms. Tempest - I didn't even listen to 1st time through because I new as a finale and at 15 mins they would throw every Toolism and the kitchen sink in, which on second listen they did, second time I heard the song I drifted out. I love hearing Tool again and all the rumbling and tumbling riffs and drums is amazing, but it is a bit over done and think in time will be a fatiguing and frustrating listen. It feels a bit like instead of trying to prove they can still make a brilliant album they tried to prove they still got it. I wish they had maintained the themes a bit in each song. Parabola is great and doesn't stick to the theme of the song and is different throughout but in that each part is unique when here as much as I love hearing it again is more of the same. Also I think the drums are bit too prominent in perhaps the songs and the mix. Maybe a few more listens, but not right now.
  4. Oh btw "haters" what are we 12, is the 4chan? It's Tool, it's been 13 years, expectations couldn't be higher. And I stand by the introduction to the song Fear Inoculum was something unique so had my expectation set for a Lateralus like advance instead of more of the same, still great to hear any Tool but and maybe optimitically I was hoping to have my mind blown as I was with Lateralus (and Moon Shaped Pool) and the opening 90 secs of Fear Inoclum (much like the opening 25 secs of Metallicas Hardwired) set that.
  5. Sorry I thought the first pic was the song, sorry about that.
  6. SPOILERS I couldn't wait, and will buying the CD when its released.. Started Fear Incolum and all my fears where dispelled, till it reached 1:40 mark and as feared is just rehashing early stuff, instant gut reaction I turned it off almost immediately. Similar experience when hearing the latest Tallica.. For sure I will listen to it later but after my existing fears from the 2 released live tracks and are actually on the album, and then the start of the first track.. And though in that post said had warmed upto the Tallica album after more listens the only track I play now is Halo on Fire and then only till it also gets crap towards the end. Ok gave the song a full listen, sounds like APC vocals over some bland rehashed Tool. Not finished quite yet, if it also has that signature Tool finish oh **** it does just started at 8:40 mark, and was hoping ok maybe not at the end.. but yep again at 10:00 mark are you kidding me? Even the track list had me concerned of just 5 looong songs in a row. One of my favourite bands, 13 years wait..
  7. I am so tempted to give a spin but will wait for the album..
  8. I am so tempted to give a spin but will wait for the album.. aw crap wrong thread (faceplam emoji)
  9. Old thread and different band, but anyone know what happend to this project or the Cog boys?
  10. Giving this spin after just reading the news.. Johnny oh Johnny you're living so lonely Acting so tough but you're looking so scared Don't you see it ain't your drugs and your money It's about love and it's about care RIP
  11. Man memories, I remember hearing Aenima complete for the first time, LOUD, working but living in uni accommodation in St Lucia in Brisbane with 4 other dudes all working, but the apartment was HUGE and cheap, and while enjoying a game of hall cricket.. Awesome! Oooh.. love me some Opeth! Incredible talent, and just gave Blackwater Park a spin yesterday but Pale Comunion has been spun reguarly of late.. cool, new album in September, well with Tool thats my listening sorted for September and October
  12. Cool protip @rowbo What we need is a new album advent calendar to count down, though I wish I was excited as when I had one of these as a kid once waiting for Santa, but.. Yep, sadly. I still don't get the long wait, and while Maynard has been off doing all his other projects what have the other three been doing for 13 years?
  13. This has been on regular repeat in the car for the last few months, especailly the epic Hearts Alive.. Mastodon - Leviathan
