They've progressed more with this album than they have with any of their previous releases.

You suggest Lateralus for the first album? WTF? Hey maybe thats your honest opinion, but I think fans of a band forget that what you think is the best album is not the most accesible.

Aenima

That would be a good choice for a first purchase. I just like Lateralus more than any of the other albums. Aenima has alot of Tool's best songs on it too, so either way they'd be making a good choice.

I have only one Tool album and that's Aenima. It's a great album, I've had it for ages and I still find new things I like about it.

You should definately pick up Lateralus and 10,000 Days next. I have yet to buy a copy of Undertow, and I've only heard some of the Opiate EP.

Thats a kind way of putting it. I like 10,000 days cause..well..I am a Tool fan but it lacked the flow I was expecting...its talented very well written and performed but it seems as though the collaberation of songs lacks the emotion I had expected.

I think 10,000 Days is great, but it's still pretty disapointing after five years and that's what these great minds create. I honestly expected more. But still pretty good. I give it a 4/5.

It's not like they took five years to write the album. They had side projects.
