It's not like I said that it sucks and I hate it.I'm just disappointed with it, ya know?Obviously I still own it, so atleast I think that it is somewhat good and worth keeping.

It's alright and that's all that can really be said about it.

Uh, I did give it several good listens already,

Masterpiece, I (still) think not!

A lot of this album is spent just plodding along.
Yeah, in a way I think it would've been better to take both albums' 10 or 12 good songs off of them and make it into one (good) album instead of the (mediocre) double.

I pretty much feel like this with all Beatles albums. I understand and agree that they are all wonderful pieces of art through composition and by pure influence. And I would love to own all of them just so I could be educated better - but, I have a hard time listening to most Beatles albums all the way through. Sometimes they fail to keep my attention. This is all changing just recently though as I have gone back and listened to my Beatles catalog. I am discovering a lot more about what I used to not understand so much.

It's a good introduction to the band & it's probably the easiest album of theirs to get into.But I can think of at least 5 Fall albums that are better.

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, Thats What I'm Not. The Kooks album was much better.

Saying that, 10,000 Days definitely has enough memorable songs on it, it's just short of anything great. And Jambi's the best song on it! Tool reached their high point in 2001, I shouldn't think they'll ever emulate it. Next album'll probably be even worse.
I don't see how any of the albums fell short in the way you talked about it. First of all, yes, Lateralus was their best album, but also Undertow was great. /Enima is right up there with Lateralus in my opinion. The amibent tracks were great and I just love how Maynard's lyrics are on that album.
