    Rumor has it that a standard CD edition (and a vinyl version) will follow in due time, and I would be very surprised if it didn't. (I won't buy it, though. I wanted the "objet." Tool missed their chance with me...and I bet they're crying all the way to the bank. )
    New album THE HIPCRIME VOCAB available now!

    Actually, I’ll just listen on Spotify. Now who was it here who recently said they don’t consider an album that’s only sold as a download to be a real album. Since the deluxe edition of this album was only sold for one day or something like that, this is really a download-only release.

    Peeps...I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP...…

    Just received my latest issue of The WASHINGTON EXAMINER....on page 56 there is a full-page article about Tool.

    Mentioned in the article are the following statements:


    The song Fear Inoculum has the distinction of being the longest song to ever crack the Billboard chart's

    Tool sound like a cross btw Metallica and "Prog-Rock icons King Crimson"

    Tool write "exceedingly complex music".

    The song "Schism" has 47 time signature changes.

    The band once used a Fibonacci sequence to write a song.

    Maynard James Keenan is also in: A Perfect Circle & Pucsifer and "is a wine impresario"

    ...the article goes on to say that, bc of FM radio's decline and now streaming service in abundance (with skimpy $$ being paid to Artists), it is no wonder that rock bands can't, or refuse, to be ambitious and innovative....save for Tool.

    I think I saw somewhere that within the last week, every song from Fear Inoculum was in the Billboard Top 100 or the like.

    I know it's as much a statement on the greatly-weakened state of the popular music market, but that's still kind of impressive.
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    It's not a contest. I don't think anyone asserted that Tool was the first (or only) one to do that.

    Then why say that Henry Cow did it first?

    Mr. Threadpolice, I just thought it would be interesting fact to share for fans of complicated music. I am so sorry that I offended you.

    Hopefully it’s obvious that I wasn’t “offended” by it. By saying Henry Cow “did that already”, it came across differently to me than just fact sharing. I thought you were contesting what the other poster said. My bad.

    It is an interesting fact. Thanks for sharing it.

    Not offended... the term you're looking for is "triggered"

    A couple of weeks into this album and I am finding that it grows on me especially songs like Invincible and Pneuma. I wish they do an offshoot project that expanded upon the song Chocolate Chip Tripp.

    Oh lord. "Triggered" is the favorite buzzword these days I guess.

    A handy way to denigrate someone else's opinion and reduce it down to something worthless.

    In all seriousness, this word gets misused a lot now. It used to have an actual meaning, based in psychology, but it's being perverted by folks with agendas.

    I swear to people that if they listen to the new Tool 57 times in a row it will grow on them and think it is actually a good album. 56 will not do. So keep listening.

    I dunno... even for the folks who only like Tool when they sound like someone else, not when they sound like Tool?

    I like to think its about flavors - some food is texture-based bliss - some food tastes good but has a texture that sucks - Tool is like this for me - if they used a different guitar tone or lost some production slickness and it turned a bit grotty - I might bite - but then the singing comes in - nope - out again. haha. They are talented and can play for sure - but it has a vegetable vibe.

    Vegetable vibe -- I love that.

    I have to be in the right frame of mind to listen to Tool, and I can understand folks who don't enjoy them. They are miles apart from a band like Cardiacs, for example (whom I love, btw, and cannot understand when folks don't like them ).

    If you have examples, show me please. I thought I was just disagreeing with your idea of practicality in album art packaging, not saying you were "triggered" by it.

    Because, contrary to what 3lockbox thinks apparently, I was not "triggered" by what Kcrimso said. I thought his intent was just to point out how Henry Cow did it first, but evidently I misunderstood -- and even admitted as much.
