Product Description

Product Description

Audio-biography +interviews and a mini-poster

One of the heaviest and most radical bands to emerge in the last decade, Tool are also one of the most enigmatic. Since their formation in Los Angeles in 1991, Tool's dense, rhythmic music, claustrophobic riffing and unconventional, esoteric lyrics have won them a large and loyal fanbase the world over. 'Maximum Tool' now gives the complete and unauthorised biography of the band from their earliest days to multi-platinum success as well as encompassing the story behind singer Maynard Keenan's hugely successful side-project, A Perfect Circle. A perfect opportunity to discover the tale behind a band that has changed the contemporary rock scene beyond recognition. Out of the darkness, into the light; this is Tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must if your info on TOOL is lacking 13 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a nice bargain of a CD which delivers and explains the complex structure of the band Tool. This CD does hold alot of info on the band including how the band got together, background info on members and also dives into detailed information on all albums including Salival and Lateralus...yes this has everything up-to-date! The only draw back of the CD is that the guys from Tool rarely speak, only at the begining of each chapter briefly for a few seconds. Instead the majority of the information that you hear is read out by a 'story teller' which can be frustrating - but the story is told and thats all that matters!

1.0 out of 5 stars Only if you desparate for knowledge 22 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD does NOT contain any music. The actual content is interesting but not really all that.....
If your a really BIG Tool fan you will find this merely interesting, if not just don't bother with this one at all.
But DO buy the albums, each is as mind blowing excellent as any other of their CD's (also check out A Perfect Circle and Peach)
PS the same can be said for the other "Maximum ....." CD's

1.0 out of 5 stars mostly worthless 16 Oct 2002
By Paul Timperio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First, don't expect any music on this album; if you could call this an album.
Second, if you want information about tool, go find the tool FAQ.
This is a watered down spoken-word history of tool. If you like cheesy intro bass riffs and some british chick telling you how wonderful tool is, with a few -less than 20 seconds, badly recorded comments from band members; then buy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insult to TOOL 14 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These bands have done nothing interesting with what were originally awesome songs. It's a waste of money for any TOOL fan who truly appreciates the original songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best unauthorized biography of TOOL yet. 18 July 2001
By Joshua Bronaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of all of the unauthorized biography discs or videos I have bought about TOOL, this is by far the best. It is about an hour long, and consentrates mainly on the band, not fan's opinions, as lesser biographies do. The narrator Nancy McClean goes into great detail on the band members' backgrounds, and how they formed TOOL, but most of the disc analyzee TOOL's use of imagery in their songs and videos. Each redord is examined in detail, by someone that obviously understands what the band is about. It is packaged in an attractive jewel case, with original art and a cardboard slipcase. There are many clips interviews with the members, but no original music (because it is unauthorized). If haven't already, do NOT get the TOOLOGY unauthorized biography video, this disc is much, much better.
Track listing: 1. Intro/the weight 2. Fermentation 3. Crystalisation 4. First Fruits 5. Further out 6. Fractured whole 7. Whole 8. Splinters 9. A gathering in 10. Forming anew
It is reasonably appearant which tracks are about the band's forming, conflicts, the replacement of Paul D'mour with Justin Chancellor, and so on.
Happy Trails.
