    Ahhhh I knew it

    Always felt like you were on a subtle crusade to associate the people itt who mostly seem to simply enjoy their music with the wackos because you used to be one but now you aren't anymore.

    Yes after two listens though I don't think it's anything special.

    Who has reacted even remotely close to that? Every response, positive or negative, has been fairly measured. Not everyone is going to have the same opinion as you Joe, especially those who might be bigger fans of their music than you.

    *subtle by your standards

    This is the first time I've seen you actually make the comparison though, I think

    That Monarch album SMOD posted today's pretty solid btw, kind of a jazzy psych/prog

    That was in reference to the part about people who might be bigger fans of their music

    I'm saying I've listened the life out of their stuff

    And I couldn't care less if people think the same way as me about this or any other album

    The song is mediocre when compared to their catalogue but at least it’s something. The music is still better than most of what’s out there and Danny Carey absolutely slays it like always. Hopefully the album is more well rounded.

    Prior to this new release their discography was 4 albums and a 25 minute EP.

    They make intricate music but it’s not exactly an expansive catalog that’s difficult to wrap your mind around.

    Sure, but how many 50 year old dudes have recorded transcendent music ever?

    Considering all of the attendant circumstances, it’s good.

    I was expecting a lot worse.

    I wasn't expecting it to be transcendent. But I was expecting it to not be boring after this long

    I was hoping for something better than paint by numbers

    My main issue with 10,000 Days wasn’t the music, which I enjoyed quite a bit, but that Keenan really undersold his vocal work and wasn’t taking any big shots despite some of the impressive work he’d recently done with A Perfect Circle. How does Fear Inoculum stack up in terms of his range and soaring crescendos?

    do Slayer or Megadeth get a pass for writing the same album for 20 years because they're old?

    Some people heard Tool in their late teens and early 20s and were like "This is awesome, I want to find more of this stuff."

    Other people heard Tool in their late teens and early 20s and were like "This is as good as it gets."

    They haven’t made an album you’ve liked in 15 years. This is a you problem, not a them problem.

    You don’t like this band anymore. It’s ok.

    You can listen to all the Black Fast that you’d like. It’s just dumb and disingenuous to act like there was any chance you’d like this album.

    The Pot was tight. The rest of the album, meh. I expect more from alleged "great" bands. If nothing else I expect them to at least try.

    This is definitely the way people talk about bands they like.



    Do you usually have a hissy fit when other bands you don’t like put out albums you don’t like, or is it just Tool, because you liked em when you were a super deep teenager and they’re supposed to mean more!!!?

    If you just listen to tool’s music in a vacuum you’re missing half the experience anyway. Or maybe you’re too thick to pick up the band's efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution

    And some flapjacks.

    Too early for flapjacks?
