Tool has crazy Stan fans. News report from joe pesci
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.
i'm guessing i know their catalog front to back plus bootlegs better than 99% of the people in here
Gradulations. Not sure what that has to do with enjoying their new stuff though
Have I ever done anything here subtly?
*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
I really liked it but I'm glad I came here and have been set straight.
Really though if you cant have strong opinions about music what can you have them about? Tennis shoes?
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.
Have you listened to the other two new ones yet?
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.
Oh I agree completely
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
Of all of the possible criticisms you claim its "paint by numbers"? Bruh...
Take your blinders off
Or open your eyes
Whatever Tool appropriate analogy you want
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?
Not that 10,000 Days was all bad, I’d put The Pot up against any of their early stuff.
Yeah if it were paint by numbers then it would be a Chevelle album
Where do you rank it all time for metal bands made up of 50+ year old members?
this sort of excuse-making isn't helping them
do Slayer or Megadeth get a pass for writing the same album for 20 years because they're old?
I’m just wondering where your dumb expectations came from.
this is an insult to chevelle, who have had 4x as many good albums (to date) as Tool since 2001
What became of subtlety?
How could this mean anything to me?
expecting it to not be mediocre and boring is a dumb expectation now? and people are acting like i'm out of line
The talking burrito is drunk and/or trolling
Why did you think it would be good? It sounds like you hate their stuff and nobody old puts out music you like.
what’s worse tool fans or joe pesci shitting on tool
they made good albums in the past that i liked so i hoped it would fall somewhere near that orbit
instead we got a 10,000 Days B-side
You haven’t even heard the album yet. Go fap to a dallas cowboys preseason game
I'm talking about the song that was released today
It’s part of a whole. I know the pieces fit, cause I watched them fall away
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.
I gave the song a fair shot. It was mediocre. I'll give the whole album a fair shot. We'll see what happens.
Song is Tool. You’re cunty. End of story. It’s okay to admit you’re a cunt about this.
I will admit that the song is mediocre. Nothing more.
Tool is OK but doesn’t compare to our local prog-rock band you’ve never heard of
Spoiler alert, you’re not going to like it. I guarantee it.
If it sounds like the song released today you're godamned right I won't
I was joking about the Soen album being better some months ago but at this point it's not really close
You didn’t like their last album.
You’re being dumb about this.
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!!!?
Are you ever not an absolute count about things you obviously don't like?
I ignored this thread like a page ago but you guys are still quoting my posts and replying so what do you want?
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
Three cheeseburgers, two large fries, two chocolate shakes and a large coke.
And some flapjacks.
Too early for flapjacks?
