Listened to them for the first time today. Went through Undertow and a few tracks off Aenema. I won't lie, it was pretty boring.

I guess they were important historically, as precursors of the whole metal revival in the early/mid 90s?

You had to be there I guess.

Not really. I still enjoy them to this day.

Different strokes and all that.

Also, it's not really the type of music that's gonna hit hard on your first playthrough.

Also they were boring in the 90s too.

They should have just released this tune and then ended it.

I mean, when I say boring, it's just that they don't seem to have any discernable hooks. I like their sound, the guitar, the bass, the drums, but I didn't catch any memorable song. The vocals are probably the weakest part.

No they're bad and you should feel bad for liking them

Tool are fine. Lateralus is probably their best album as an overall experience, but 10,000 Days does have some great hooks.

Seeing them live years ago has forever solidified my opinion of them. They'll always be excellent in my book.

Ja, seeing them live really helped me realize how much Maynard ****ing sucks and that their fans are even worse.

At Ozzfest 98 there was a blue statue of him placed on stage during their setup, and then when they started the show it came to life. It WAS Maynard.



I give him a lotta credit for being able to sit still for that long.
