Since you people seemed to really enjoy my last post on Tool’s new music, here are some more goodies. After giving the whole album a couple of good listens to, I have to admit as much as I wanted to say this is a great new album for the band, I think my hopes were just up to high. There are still some good tracks on the album but just not up to par for what I was expecting, after all this hype.
I have been a Tool fan since Aenima came out (over 10 years ago, isn’t that crazy?) and I have played the hell out of all of the albums. In my opinion the albums have been getting better and more experimental but this one seems to kind of flop. First of all they seem to be using the same riffs as 10 years ago. I used to enjoy the crazy filler the band puts between tracks but 10,000 days is so full of crap at is almost not listenable. Do you remember (–) Ions? It is just crazy static noise for like four minutes. This album is full of that crap; for an 86 minute CD there is about an hour of listenable music that could have been a good CD. Yeah you’re crazy and artsy, I get it but you really don’t have to fill up an album to its max capacity.
I realize I am probably going to get blasphemed for this post, but I have to tell it like it is. This is not the worst CD I have ever heard, it is just not that awesome. Enjoy these few good tracks that were on it.
