I can definately agree with that.
I prefer it much better when it's a solid song like Schism, or Sober.

This album has too much filler for me. Otherwise it's great.

I honestly would have preferred if Tool had released an EP with Vicarious, The Pot and Jambi on it. And then, release them as singles with the rest of 10,000 Days as the B-sides.

I was thinking more from the standpoint of keeping well free from ending up with a largely dud record. But now that you mention it, I wouldn't be half surprised if they could've found a way to make more money doing it the way I said too.

"Seems highly unlikely that it's their last tour."

I dunno. I certainly can't imagine them doing another album.

It's their last tour promoting 10,000 Days.

I believe they are contracted for one more.

Doesn't mean a thing.
Just means the record company can stick out a live album or a best of without the bands permission.

Bet that one didn't occur to you.
Or maybe they were just content at the prospect of 5+ million dollars worth of sales in the first week. Which is just as well, anyway. I'd sure as hell be


On the topic of albums, does anybody reckon Tool will actually make another one? I'm uncertain myself, mostly for reasons already stated. I'm simply not sure where Tool can realistically go from this point. Regardless of what anybody might think of 10,000 Days, the fact is that a lot of actual Tool FANS were disappointed in it in at least some way. As for those who were not disappointed, they'll generally admit at least that it wasn't the record to rival the highs of Lateralus that they'd been hoping for.

Would Tool further risk losing what they've created, or would they rather call it a day and be remembered for the highly regarded albums rather than the 1+ failures to emulate them that came later?

I personally enjoyed 10,000 days more than lateralus. Lateralus got really slow at times, and lacked punch. However 10000 days is less overproduced and is just a more edgy feel (ie rosetta stoned) which I liked a lot.
