2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't last long, 9 July 2006
A nice looking toaster, but I have only had for about a year and now it takes a lot of persuasion for the bread to stay down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Happy Day!!, 29 April 2006
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!

Possibly, the most accomplished sounding since their debut, with more spaced out electronica than their previous outings, possibly drawing the comparisons with Spaceman 3 and My Bloody Valentine, but still retaining that definitive 6x7 feel.
I'm going to see them live tonight, saw them a couple of years ago and was looking forward to it, but after hearing this album I can't bloody wait!
Come on people, buy this album and if you haven't got… Read more
