5.0 out of 5 stars ITS MUSIC FOR GODS SAKE, 15 April 2008
This review is from: 10,000 Days (Audio CD)
I tend to agree with Mikey all this pontification about what Tool songs mean or don't mean or whether tool is a metaphor for living a certain way blah blahblah is pointless. I am a massve Tool fan and have seen their musical scale and scope grow since the early nineties into what has to be said a fantastic album in 10,000 days which is a real grower unfairly criticised by a lot of you on Amazon early on release but......... I don't hang on their every word, know all their views on climate change, when they were born or whether they talk in riddles and nor do I look for little gimmicky types of hippyesque quotes or stuff from the band. The most important thing is that the music is so unique that it moves you just like opera does. I can't speak Italian or understand the lyrics of some operas but still feel the power of arrangements or muscial changes. So, it is the same with Tool who have an unbelieveably diverse and distinctive vocalist like Maynard. Tool just work musically. They are one of those phenomena. I can't wait to listen to Tool most days, they excite me musically, but I don't for one minute think that we should worship at the altar of Tool and put them on a pedastal. I've got a feeling that most of the fans actually think they are a load of xxxxxxx but all I am interested in that they continue to produce music of the quality they can in the existing dire musical scene of drivel and mediocrity.

I also think that it is about time they actually produced a high quality live dvd recording for the fans that have bought their music and followed their progress for years, if indeed they are bothered. I hope it isn't arrogance or a sense of skewed commercialism that is stopping them from doing this as most fans I speak to want this. They will undoubtabley be referenced as one of the greatest bands of recent years and for years to come, they deserve it for their music, they are just excellent and I can't think of a tool song I can't listen to but lets have a little restraint on the fan worship and over analysing that typifies a lot of Tool fans
