5.0 out of 5 stars The old future of progressive metal, 2 Jun 2003
This review is from: Undertow (Audio CD)
This was the first tool album I owned. At first I thought it was "good", but after you really listen to it you realise what a true masterpiece it really is. The whole album grows with you, each track compliments the others on the album. Melancholy lyrics combine with churning guitars, tight baselines and solid drum rhythm. I've heard this album referred to as progressive metal. It truely is. No bands from the nu-metal fold ome even close to the dark majecty that is tool. Listen to this album as a whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Future of Metal, 9 Jan 2003
I bought this album after listening to hearing "Not falling" on Kerrang TV. "Not falling" however is simply the door to an album I consider to be the future of a genre. Building upon rich and varied drumming rhythms the band explore altered timings and sounds to produce an album that is more composed than written. I really enjoyed that first listen, when song after song sounds new and exiting. The album also improves with listening, subtlties in "Perversion of a Truth" such as the hammering "Doesn't exist!!" chorus and the unexpected exits from chorus to verse and bridge mean that this album is still in my car stereo after two weeks. If you believe in New Nu metal, then buy this
