Tool Fear Inoculum

Surprised no thread for this yet as long as the wait has been. Quite looking forward to this coming out, can't wait to hear the whole album.

I don't detect a lot of Tool fans among this bunch, their loss. I'd like to hear it to.

Got my CD pre ordered from Amazon. This is the only band I will still buy hard copies of. Can't wait.

I feel like it’s just ok, the music is good but I really don’t like the way Maynard is singing, like the recent APC record. Really high pitched, it grates my ears lol. But good ol tool, 10min song and it never feels that long. I feel like Maynard really doesn’t care, I know singers age but like pro sports players as they lose their rawness they have to come up with other ways to compete, like with singing they could add harmonies or effects but no he just sings with an annoying voice. I know it would never happen but if I had composed that beautiful song and Maynard came in and did his thing it’s like- uh try harder please.

Pre-ordered mine from Deep Discount. It'll be on its way soon enough.


One thing I'm curious about this CD is its purported running time of 85 minutes. Is that even possible for a redbook CD? I mean, one side, one layer, with a standard maximum capacity of 80 minutes of music, and they tacked on an extra 5 minutes somehow? I'd love to know how they did it. The longest single CD I ever knew of was the Mission of Burma compilation Rykodisc put out in the '80s, and that ran 80:05, before they managed to extend the running time on CDs from 75 minutes to 80. Even Metallica's Load gives out at 78:59, so to see a single CD that breaks 80 minutes these days is a big deal to me.


UPDATE: It just occurred to me that some of the material is only available in the download, provided with the CD purchase. The track listing was released today, and there are three tracks that don't appear on the CD itself, only in the download. Still, even without these tracks, if the CD itself still manages to break the 80 minute mark, I will still be quite surprised.

They way they compose everything is just spot on for me. I could listen to just Danny Carey play drums tbh, everyone else is just attempting to play the drums in comparison. The vibe on this song is awesome, beginning to end. Reminds me of Wings for Marie at beginning

I was surprised it broke the top 100, let alone its 10 minutes long is crazy.

Their entire discography is only recently available digitally, they all hit the Billboard in some fashion. Pretty epic stuff. Will it save us from electro pop rap? Probably not, but as for myself I'm gonna move the drywall at home tonight.
