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.

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.

Dudes, this is a sonic assault, probably aggravated. Call the cops.


Track Two, Pneuma, from Fear Inoculum.


Dew drips down the green reeds as the Silverback gorilla eases into a seated position. The mists of the jungle floor part ways for his body.


As your last breaths leave your lungs, you look into his eyes and wonder if he is in the same intimate moment as you. The moment your flesh failed.

The Silverback peers down on you, he understands you're over.

The whole album is up on Apple music and I would assume other streaming sources. Who did you pre-order from? That's a long delay for a physical copy.

Yeah, I have it DL. I had credit so it was coming from Target. I assume the date is just random

Im still a fan of physical copies.

Overall great effort by them.

So far in order my favorites are
1Pneuma this is classic Tool
2Fear Inoculum like the mid eastern vibe
37empest

Still digging this record very much. It does not lend itself to just riding around jamming. I feel I need to plant myself in the study and push the drywall apart.

It's an absolute monster of audio. Multiple layers everywhere.

Agreed. Song 4 onwards it's a different album, Start at the beginning songs 1 thru 3 come from a different place. Once upon a time people might have listened to something like this, using certain plant based substances.

My favorite band and my favorite album to date! Got chills when I first started listening. Listened to it 3 times in the first day.

In my part of the world this was hard to get for some reason. Kept waiting for Amazon.ca to have it and unless I missed it, never came on PO. Called around and nobody had it. Finally found one place that had 4 copies left and bought 2 (not for resale). Keeping one sealed for the time being. Only learned later that are multiple versions of the case. Is it only the back that's different or is there something different inside as well?

I see that the scumbag scalpers on Ebay are trying to make a fortune off of this. POS.

Sirus XM's Liquid Metal channel is playing Tool's 7empest and they don't play a lot Tool on that channel. So it's official 7empset is a really bad ass song and gets played among Slayer,Slipknot,and course Metallica.

Well I did want a CD but it still shows 152.00 at Amazon. I've been listening with the Prime streaming, but I'll gamble on the 12 dollar mp3 download to have more dynamic range.

Damn, I'm way more than a dozen in now, unbelievable. Pneuma, with it's 7/4 x2, 5/8, and god knows what other time sigs they stuff into that is just amazing. One of the things that's always drawn me to bands like Tool, King Crimson, etc, were those "off" timings. It put's me in what I call a "pleasantly apprehensive" state, not that that makes any logical sense. Pneuma builds and builds and builds and gives you just enough payment to whet your appetite for "one more time". I started off thinking this was pretty good for Old Tool Guys and now I'm thinking it's as good as anything in the discog.

So purchased MP3's appear to have a little more on the bottom and the top but it's hard to tell for sure. The utoob streaming is very good. (Klipsch THX ULTRA2s plus JBL 2242h ported in 8 feet @45hz, lots of power.)
