Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With a majority of the songs on 10,000 Days clocking in well past the seven-minute mark, you wouldn't be entirely mistaken in thinking that the title of the album refers to how long it actually takes to make it through the whole thing. Two of the tracks--the sitar and tabla enhanced "10,000 Days (Wings Part 2)" and its suitably epic psych-rock sister "Rosetta Stoned"--even linger on for nearly a dozen leisurely minutes each. That's delightful news for the legion of Tool fans that have been waiting five years for the follow-up to 2001's Lateralus, which debuted at number one and sold 2.3 million copies in the United States. Singer Maynard James Keenan is back on mystical form after his hiatus with the politically slanted A Perfect Circle, sounding at once ethereal and eloquent as he calmly charges through the metal tempest of the opening track "Vicarious." The rest of the band, meanwhile, hits a series of high-flying moments with tracks such as "Jambi" and "The Pot." When Tool sounds as good as it does on these songs it's hard to get enough. Which makes it all the more baffling that a surprisingly large chunk of the disc is given over to mood-enhancing soundscapes like "Lost Keys" and "Vigniti Tres." Who has time for filler? --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars Give me my Wings 30 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
I purposely waited one year after the release of "10,000 Days" to give this review so that it would be a better indication of my feelings towards the record, rather than a quick and excited review about a hugely anticipated album.

After what felt like an eternity since 2001's incredible album "Lateralus," Tool unleashed their most progressive album to date in the form of "10,000 Days." The album was shrouded in secrecy, as is Tool's way, revealing very little other than the track names a short few weeks before the album's release.

It quickly surfaced that the album's title was related to the amount of time lead singer Maynard James Keenan's mother spent paralysed from the neck down, and the album's longest duo of tracks "Wings For Marie / 10,000 Days" is a surprisingly touching yet angry account of that story. Clocking in at a collective 17 and a half minutes, the duo is an epic Tool song, so different to anything they've done before, a live masterpiece and by far and away the best thing on this album. Fans were slow to warm to the track but all eventually come around to its sheer strength, vocal complexity and lyrical and emotional power.

The album itself, in its entirety, is a revelation, much like "Lateralus" was and "Aenima" was before that. Opening with powerhouse radio single "Vicarious," the album starts with a roar and continues its charge through second song, live favourite "Jambi." After the assault on the senses that is "Wings For Marie / 10,000 Days," fans experience Maynard James Keenan's highest vocal attempt yet, the unusually apt "The Pot," which boils with energy reminiscent of the "Undertow" days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Happy Day!! 29 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's been a long five year wait, but the new Tool album dropped onto my doormat this morning, and having now listened to it twice I can safely say two things; 1. It was well worth the wait, and 2. Maynard and the lads have surpassed themselves!

The tunes on this new CD are superb, ranging from the atmospheric thunderstorm-backed title track to balls-out heavy stuff like Jambi, all with their usual complexities and wierd time signatures! Maynard's voice just gets better and better, there are times on this CD where he sings unlike I've ever heard him before with Tool or A Perfect Circle.

Contrary to the first review here, the titles and artwork are not fake, the titles are as they appear here, the cover is slightly different.

Speaking of which, the CD case design is outstanding but quite difficult to describe. The case contains two lenses which when folded out and looked through, the inside booklet gives a series of stereoscopic pictures of the band and the gorgeous artwork, total class!

The only downside to this album coming out now, is that this is probably the beginning of another long wait for the next one!

Also, a lot of the other reviewers calling themselves long-term Tool fans are moaning about the soundscape 'fillers' on here such as 'Lipan Conjuring' and 'Vigniti Tres', have they forgotten there have been tracks like this on EVERY Tool album? Remember 'Disgustipated' on Undertow (strange diatribe on vegetables taking over!), 'ions(-)' on Aenima (3 minutes of electrical buzzing!) or 'Faaip de Oiad' on Lateralus (some guy blubbing about being abducted by aliens!)??

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult 5 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
Before we go any further, this is an entirely different beast to the other Tool albums, with the exception of Vicarious(the album's opener), which smacks of Lateralus and serves as a nice bridge between the two albums. Jambi continues the theme but feels more tribal, mainly due to Adam Jones's insteresting triplet based riff.
Fans expecting Lateralus II may be disappointed. Anyone with no preconceptions of what this album *should* sound like will be rewarded with one of the finest pieces of music to be released this decade.
Tool once again display absolute mastery of their craft. Polyrhtyhmic, dense, atmospheric, painfully personal lyrics healthily mixed with trademark cynicism.
Tool sound like an army rather than a band, the production is first rate and while Maynard's voice is less prominent in the mix this time around, the quality of his voice is staggering. His range seems to have improved as well (espec. on "The Pot")
I bought this cd, put it in my player and thought "not sure".
5 listens later and I have to say it is one of the most intense and complete musical "trips" I have encountered since....oh I don't know.....the last Tool album ;)Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Combination Of The Old 3 Jun 2006
By Tom Chase VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Tool's new album is more a combination of the old styles than a searching for a new one. The album is aggressive at times, recalling the grittier, fuming Aenima days. But it also has a more developed progressive styling, which strikes me as an evolution from the more complex structures of Lateralus. The production is very crisp, the album art is quite unique with its 3D lenses and overall a nice package with heavy influence on the works of Alex Grey.

My first impression of the album was that it drifts off about halfway through. It is a monster, clocking in at nearly a CD max, it will certainly test the patience of some fans, even the most rabid. After kicking off with "Vicarious" and "Jambi" I was impressed. Both songs are very solid, very tight and fuse the more complex structuring of Lateralus with heavier, more `rocking' sections, akin to Aenima.

Then comes the real first surprise, the "Wings" two-part epic clocking in at nearly 20 minutes. Tool fans are used to long pieces, such as Third Eye and the Disposition/Reflection/Triad masterpiece, but this is something much more drawn out, far more progressive. I was swamped in the song. Completely in awe at the wondrous build-up work, the sincere emotional delivery of MJK and especially the magnificent, spine-tingling moment when he sings "10,000 days in the fire is long enough, you're coming home". A truly fantastic piece, and it struck me, on first listen, as Tool's finest.

The rest of the album had to grow on me. "The Pot" did not impress me at first, but I have gradually come round to it, and especially enjoy the heavy chugging middle section.
