Reading some of the "if you can appreciate it" "if you can understand this", "I would'nt recommend this to start off on Tool, you should try aenima" ..etc etc has prompted me to do so.
There is no ideal place to start with Tool, just start.
This album is heavy, if you don't like heavy rock/metal you probably won't like this. If you have an inclination to listen to this type of music then I cannot recommend this album highly enough. The music is amazing, nothing technically difficult in the guitar/ bass playing lots of polyrhytmic drumming, which is excellent. The album is a rollercoaster ride, musically and lyrically. Soft sudddenly becoming heavy. Maynard is a great singer and his lyrics are mind blowing, if a little cryptic. Perfect if you like philosophy. The lyrics are not in the liner (go to the band website for these)...which is all Alex Grey paintings, again if you like spirituality and philosophy.
Musically and Lyrically this album is one which will encourage you to think. Should you choose to do so. You could just as easily "headbang" to it. As for coming to a conclusion on what it all means....well thats entirely up to you. The Individual.
This album is stunning...try it (Listen to it a few times and you won't be able to stop). Then go see them live. I doubt you'll be let down.

Some were made to write music and gather an audience. They sat in their bedrooms one day listening to Sonic Youth, Nirvana, perhaps even Pink Floyd, grabbed hold of a guitar given to them by a distant uncle or family friend, and started strumming and write lyrics from the heart and maybe even score a hit or two. Some however, were made to change how people like that see music altogether.
Tool are different. They're like the boy who stands in the corner of the playground, that has no friends, and is seen as weird, but you just know that he's got something up his sleeve. He's thinking something. From the first song of Tool's 'Aenima' album, 'Stinkfist', you'll find that if you bully this little boy he'll bite, hiss and scream at you. And then some. 'Aenima' is the album that changed a lot of people's opinions on music while sitting in their rooms with a guitar, so Tool really had nothing to lose, and since Aenima for the most part was a damn vicious affair, it was about time Tool tampered with the quiet, the quiet-loud, and dare I say it, an even more experimental formula. When 'Aenima' was released, nothing else sounded like it, and still nothing does, so if there's one thing that you know about buying a Tool record, it's that you're getting something unlike anything else. And that extends much further than 'Aenima'.
'Lateralus' was much anticipated upon it's release, and rightly so, there aren't many bands who can leave their fan base for 5 years with no new material and get away with it. Something else that there isn't many of is a band actually going and pulling it off and releasing a belter...

I have been a Tool fan for a while now and have recently come back to this album after buying 10000 Days recently. Lateralus stands out for Tool as a bit of crucible performance. The band members have really learned to emote through these songs. Blazing riffs and soaring lyrics allow the listener something truely rare...escape to another place completely. If you're into metal bands with a harder edge and your brain is still connected to your soul then you wont be disappointed.

In the scope of the history of the earth, five years isn't a long time. It's a mere millisecond in the hundreds of millions of years that this planet has existed. In the music industry, however, 5 years is a millennium. And when you're Tool, five years should have been way too long to stay in the hearts and minds of hard rock fans everywhere. Music fans have a strong tendency to forget and then, forget some more. No one cares what you did five years ago. That is why its all the more impressive that Tool was able to remain in the spotlight even after 5 years in between albums.
They headlined the last Lollapalooza tour in 1997, and then, the next summer, they headlined the Ozzfest, going on right before the man himself, Ozzy Osbourne did. They went through a prolonged court battle with their record label that delayed them even getting into the studio to record the follow up to 1996's brilliant Aenima. The band released a live DVD/CD box set, which was moderately successful. Then there was lead singer Maynard James Keenan's side project, A Perfect Circle. That band went platinum and toured successfully while the finishing touches were put on the new Tool record. And then, finally, FINALLY, after 5 years, in May of 2001, Tool released their third full-length album, Lateralus. The question of course was "was it worth the wait?" The answer is undoubtedly and unanimously a "yes."
The music of Tool is an unbelievable thing...
It is hard and aggressive, yet flowing and melodic.
It is angry and sadistic, yet calm and relaxing.
It is sullen and haunting, yet smart and illuminating.
It will have you banging your head and thrashing about in a fit of rage one minute, and then lead you seductively into quiet contemplation the next.
It is art.
