I'm listening to Undertow and it's awesome! (no it's not my first time)

I'm reading the negative reviews on RYM and really I'm just baffled sometimes. I guess it's true sometimes you just had to be there. Or somewhere. Other than where you were. If you don't like it. I'm just glad I was there.

Lateralus... maybe it's just me and my "mellow" kick lately... I've been through a fairly rough period recently and now I am finding all sorts of changes starting to spring open.... mellow electronic music is definitely one of those changes...

But yeah, I still love bone jarring intense metal when I really need heavy....

I agree with the stuff about Chancellor above. That guy is amazing to behold live. He rocks out way harder than anyone else in the band. Whenever I'm at a Tool show, my attention is on him or Danny Carey the vast majority of the time.

Yes, Maynard own his very own wine company AND vineyard based in Arizona. check it out. he also has a bunch of interviews and videos about it on youtube.

I think that they are all some of the greatest musicians in rock and metal. Especially Carey. and Jones. and Chancellor. and maynard.
wait a sec... :)

Yeah he's been spending A LOT of time with his wine-making/ vineyards at the moment and less time with his music which is pretty disappointing. He also named the first batch of his wine after his mother who passed away. You can read all about his current pursuits and thoughts about things in his blog which is at Puscifer's MySpace Blog | Puscifer

A pretty interesting read for anyone who is an MJK fan.

So I have a pretty limited knowledge of Tool that I am wishing to expand. I have 10000 Days, which I like. What do you think is the next album to get?

Antonio 09-13-2009 08:17 PM

Lateralus and Aenima are two great ones

storymilo 09-13-2009 08:23 PM

Cool I'll pick those up. By the way, I DID like Mastodon. We can still be friends:D

Yay, it's pretty uncommon for somebody to pick up 10,000 and like it without having heard other Tool stuff as 10,000 is one of the most difficult to get into IMO. If you like it though, most definitely check out Lateralus next.

I did find it a bit difficult to get into (probably because almost every song is over 6 minutes long) but it's just a really well done album in whole. I especially like Vicarious and The Pot.
