Artist: Tool
Description:
Tool: Danny Carey, Adam Jones , Justin Chancellor, Maynard James Keenan. Audio Mixer: Joe Barresi. Recording information: Grandmaster, Hollywood, CA; O'Henry, Burbank, CA; The Loft, Hollywood, CA. Animation: Ray Zone. Illustrator: Alex Grey. Photographer: Travis Shin. To its legion of fans, everything the band Tool does is an event, but the elaborate plan behind their sporadic release schedule--roughly five years, on average, between albums--is due primarily to the time and effort the band packs into each successive effort. To title their fourth album 10,000 DAYS, then, isn't as much an exaggeration as it would seem. Tool are America's most consummate mainstream perfectionists, revitalizing progressive rock to the grandeur of its '70s heyday, but updated with technocratic tension and existential dread not known to previous generations. Perhaps it's the development of more musical genres at the turn of the millennium, but it's also Tool's ability to take what is needed from each and leave the florid excesses behind, forming a seething gray core of angst and release across epic-length songs that are as accessible as they are complex. The material on 10,000 DAYS provides typically thought-provoking grist for the band's lyrical handwringing ("Vicarious" tackles reality television as the bane of culture; "Wings for Marie" is a two-part suite on the death of vocalist Maynard James Keenan's mother), and is as musically engaging as ever, finding the band at their most powerful since 1996's AENIMA.

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (p.92) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Singer Maynard Keenan's operatic vocals, alternately simmering and shrill, are more personal and less pretentious than ever before." Rolling Stone (p.108) - Ranked #38 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "'Vicarious' and 'The Pot' are packed with clever twists on instant-hit-single kicks..." Spin (p.85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "They've moved past metal to become their own genre....Keenan hisses a mysterious, gnomic gospel..." Alternative Press (p.196) - "10,000 DAYS packs enough beauty, heartache and triumph that it will be dissected, studied and envied by younger bands for years to come." Kerrang (Magazine) - "[E]pic, gradiose, mysterious and engaging....An album as substantial and challenging as only the great works of art can aspire to be..." Kerrang (Magazine) (p.68) - Ranked #6 in Kerrang's "20 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "Self-indulgence never sounded so thrilling." Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's enough innovation of a musical nature to ensure they need not rely solely on vintage phantasmagoria to capture the imagination."

  • Tool does it again!

    BUY THIS! This is an epic album, although it might take some people a while to agree. The experimental time changes and phenominal playing is not the trendy simple catchy phrases you hear on the radio. This is not POP! So don't expect to have it immediately stuck in your head. The lyrics here are very emotional and quite angry at times. The album is more balanced between the instruments with everyone getting a fair share of playing time than in previous albums. There is alot of creative use with harmonics on strings and experimental rythyms. Maynard is not as pronounced on this album but still amazes throughout. Do yourself a favor and listen to this on a great pair of headphones without interuption for the first time through and listen a few times through before final judgements. Album breakdown. Starting with track one, (Vicarious) you will here an odd timed groove very reminescent of the Lateralus album but hold on because a quick change will take you into a heavy complex groove. Overall a little heavier tool than you're used to with Maynard's vocals on the angry side. Trying to count this timing could get difficult. Lots of changes in this one with phenominal bass playing and as always Danny Carey is right on. Track two: (Jambi) The beginning of this track shows the Meshuggah influence on the band recently. Heavy quick playing is quickly followed by cleaner vocals by MJK. Very experimental on this one. Jambi builds you up over and over again but never lets you down. More guitar riffs so far on the album. On there way to an epic album. Track three: (Wings for Marie part 1) This is actually around 17 minutes long between part 1 and 2. Starts slow and lets you relax a little from the first two tracks. This one reminds me of Pink Floyd. Lots of panning on this one, sounds great on a good system. Kind of has a soft Parabola feel in the beginning darkening as it goes along. It's uplifting to finally here some good new music out. Track four: (Wings for Marie part 2) Picks up where part 1 left off darker then part 1 in the beginning with alot of bass and light drumming. Seems to have the sound of a storm in the background. Like one of the neverending Floyd jam sessions but with Bonham behind the set rather than Mason. Some religous references in the one that you'll have to interpret yourself. Can't wait to feel this stuff Live! Wings for Marie will probably be overlooked upon first listen because of the length and the long instrumental gaps only to be savored as it gets more familiar. Very strong finish. Track number 5 (The pot) Here is a side of Maynard we haven't seen in the beginning singing clean before the music starts with a bass groove that should inspire Claypool. This one makes you move with agreat vocals and a title that denotes accurate subject matter. This ones like the bag of L*y's potato chips, once you start it you can't stop. A borderline drug with a quick addiction. Track number 6 (Lipan Conjuring) A segue. Track number 7 (lost keys blame Hoffman) A seque. Track number 8 (Rosetta Stoned) A definate Meshuggah influence on this one particularly in the beginning. Very heavy fast distorted lyrics that don't clean till the middle. Jazz influence on the drumming with a Carey twist. about 5 minutes in you get some AEnima characteristics followed by some odd timed bass a percussion rythym and a solo from Adam that couldn't classify as typical. Gets thicker towards the ending with and angry finish. Track number nine (Intension) Some bouncy bass percussion and a fluid bass lines start slow, MJK enters almost immediately. Some hand rythym enters in with a heavy tabla influence from Aloke Dutta. About four minutes in you get a change with a new riff from Adam Jones and a funky electronic percussion that shows off Danny's Intricasy and dedication to percussion. Track number ten (Right in Two) An epic tool intro with some off beat harmonics thrown into to throw you off just enough. This is one of my favorites. The lyrics are deep and moving. Some tribal rythyms in the middle again widening the talent gap between Danny and other rock drummers. Influence from all previous albums on the one with lots of new experimental sound. Track number eleven (Viginti Tres) A segue.

  • Great Album

    This is one of the few CD's I have bought in the past few years given the rise of the MP3 market place. I must say, buying the actual CD is totally worth it. First off, The album art is incredible, and it comes with cool 3D viewer to look at everything. May seem kind of lame, but Maynard James Keenen makes it awesome. The Music is awesome. Like most Tool albums, you have to listen to the whole thing a few times, and then the songs really grow on you to a point where you almost can't stop listeneing to the CD. I am very happy with the purchase, and I am glad that iTunes does not carry Tool, otherwise I would have downloaded it and never even known about the Album Art.
