Tool fans really do go crazy over MJK as a lyricist, and Carey is very highly regarded among drummers.

But Jones and Chancellor get very little credit, am I the only one who thinks Jones is actually a really good guitarist?

Yeah, I'm just tired of every Dream Theater and Symphony X fan giving the guy hell because he's not a wankaholic.

Jp has a helluva lot more on jones than "wanking" abilities though let me tell you. Like... Virtually every other aspect of guitar playing.
DON?????? Is that you?

He and Tom Morello were originally in a band together. Maybe they should to a reunion project. That would be pretty sweet.

Jones is a magnificent guitarist, and my favourite member of Tool. A side project from him would be awesome! Too bad he's too busy with his art and stuff.

Lateralus is my favourite album. I'd start with Lateralus and 10,000 days. I find most people like these albums more than their earlier ones, like Aenima or Undertow.

boo boo, you are not the only person that thinks Jones is an amazing guitarist. If you read a few posts back, you'll see that he makes me blubber like a little bitch sometimes.

wayfarer, I completely agree on Maynard. He's a cocky son of a bitch these days. As for J.C's riffs - this might be kind of a given but "Disposition"? Oh, fuck yes. EDIT: I forgot about "Intension"! Another song that showcases the bass. I think he is the most discredited member of Tool.

What do you guys think of Paul d'Amour's work with them? Well, I guess in a more general way of asking - older Tool? Undertow? Opiate?

And Antonio, I think you should start with Ænima or Lateralus. Though is an amazing album, I think it's also crucial to get a feel for them before 10,000 Days . Lateralus changed my life. Because I've always been more into the transitional aspects of everything (weather, music, life), Lateralus would be my favorite album by them. You're into some heavier shit, though, so I know you'd dig AEnima. And hey, if you're feeling adventurous, dig deeper for some rawness - the days before Maynard gave a fuck.
