Im not the biggest Tool fan but when im in the mood i dig what they do. Apart from having and occasionally listening to their records i know jack about this band, i dont even know the reasons behind people hating Maynard James Keenan but apparantly people do!

Probably a little over-rated for me but as i said, if im in the mood then i do enjoy their music and thats enough for a yes from me.

As much as I do like Tool, see my last fm for backing, I am still going to vote no. I personally don't believe their music to be absolutely earth-shattering.

Never been intimately familiar with their earlier stuff, but i used to listen to the 'Lateralus' a good deal and am aware of their 'oeuvre' through the videos as well. I'll have to take zeppy's stance on this one, they have some great moments but i'm not especially keen to see a prick like Keenan receive another accolade... they are bloated enough

So here's my experience with Tool.

I first heard of them in the early 90s when they were basically written off as a third rate industrial band. I heard a couple of songs & thought 'Hmm, they sound like a third rate industrial band'. So I ignored them and they fell off my radar.

Fast forward to 2000/2001 when I first came online and I seem to run into all these people who seem to rate this band highly. At first I thought it was pretty funny that these people were hero worshipping some run of the mill early 90s band. So you could imagine my shock and subsequent laughter when I realised they were now being hailed as alternative rock gods. Anyway to shut people up and to find out what all the fuss was about I listened to both Aenima & Lateralus and was staggered by the sheer amount of mind blowing indifference I held towards them both. To me it just sounded like a bunch of generic sludgy metal riffs with some idiot mumbling & screaming over them. I didn't even think it was done in an interesting way.

To me Tool are a gateway band in the same way like a band like My Chemical Romance are. Like when you're a kid you listen to pop music and then you decide you like a band like My Chemical Romance and then all of a sudden you think you're into punk or something. Tool are like that, Tool are like a gateway band for kids who listen to cheesy power metal and think guitar playing speeds are the most important things in music into things that are not as cheesy and maybe something a bit more cerebral, IE proper music.

And on a side note it's interesting to note that a lot of the Tool fans I knew from around 9/10 years ago who were in their late teens/early 20s went on to become jazz bores later in life.

I voted no.
