    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. )

    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.

    Henry Cow did that already on 1974 (Ruins from Unrest album).

    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.
