I purposely waited one year after the release of "10,000 Days" to give this review so that it would be a better indication of my feelings towards the record, rather than a quick and excited review about a hugely anticipated album.

After what felt like an eternity since 2001's incredible album "Lateralus," Tool unleashed their most progressive album to date in the form of "10,000 Days." The album was shrouded in secrecy, as is Tool's way, revealing very little other than the track names a short few weeks before the album's release.

It quickly surfaced that the album's title was related to the amount of time lead singer Maynard James Keenan's mother spent paralysed from the neck down, and the album's longest duo of tracks "Wings For Marie / 10,000 Days" is a surprisingly touching yet angry account of that story. Clocking in at a collective 17 and a half minutes, the duo is an epic Tool song, so different to anything they've done before, a live masterpiece and by far and away the best thing on this album. Fans were slow to warm to the track but all eventually come around to its sheer strength, vocal complexity and lyrical and emotional power.

The album itself, in its entirety, is a revelation, much like "Lateralus" was and "Aenima" was before that. Opening with powerhouse radio single "Vicarious," the album starts with a roar and continues its charge through second song, live favourite "Jambi." After the assault on the senses that is "Wings For Marie / 10,000 Days," fans experience Maynard James Keenan's highest vocal attempt yet, the unusually apt "The Pot," which boils with energy reminiscent of the "Undertow" days.

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!

The tunes on this new CD are superb, ranging from the atmospheric thunderstorm-backed title track to balls-out heavy stuff like Jambi, all with their usual complexities and wierd time signatures! Maynard's voice just gets better and better, there are times on this CD where he sings unlike I've ever heard him before with Tool or A Perfect Circle.

Contrary to the first review here, the titles and artwork are not fake, the titles are as they appear here, the cover is slightly different.

Speaking of which, the CD case design is outstanding but quite difficult to describe. The case contains two lenses which when folded out and looked through, the inside booklet gives a series of stereoscopic pictures of the band and the gorgeous artwork, total class!

The only downside to this album coming out now, is that this is probably the beginning of another long wait for the next one!

Also, a lot of the other reviewers calling themselves long-term Tool fans are moaning about the soundscape 'fillers' on here such as 'Lipan Conjuring' and 'Vigniti Tres', have they forgotten there have been tracks like this on EVERY Tool album? Remember 'Disgustipated' on Undertow (strange diatribe on vegetables taking over!), 'ions(-)' on Aenima (3 minutes of electrical buzzing!) or 'Faaip de Oiad' on Lateralus (some guy blubbing about being abducted by aliens!)??

Before we go any further, this is an entirely different beast to the other Tool albums, with the exception of Vicarious(the album's opener), which smacks of Lateralus and serves as a nice bridge between the two albums. Jambi continues the theme but feels more tribal, mainly due to Adam Jones's insteresting triplet based riff.
Fans expecting Lateralus II may be disappointed. Anyone with no preconceptions of what this album *should* sound like will be rewarded with one of the finest pieces of music to be released this decade.
Tool once again display absolute mastery of their craft. Polyrhtyhmic, dense, atmospheric, painfully personal lyrics healthily mixed with trademark cynicism.
Tool sound like an army rather than a band, the production is first rate and while Maynard's voice is less prominent in the mix this time around, the quality of his voice is staggering. His range seems to have improved as well (espec. on "The Pot")
I bought this cd, put it in my player and thought "not sure".
5 listens later and I have to say it is one of the most intense and complete musical "trips" I have encountered since....oh I don't know.....the last Tool album ;)Buy it.

Was there really any doubt that the next Tool album was going to be fantastic? No not really, because they are a band of pure genius, a band that can put together the most beautiful music whilst at the same time throw in some vicious and powerful riffs which make you go crazy for more.

I have just listened to the whole album 10,000 Days, and i must say i have been blown away once again. This album is pure brilliance crammed onto a CD.

The thing that struck me most about this album is that it is quite different to everything they have previously done. After the opening track Vicarious (which has a hint of Lateralus) the album twists and turns and shows off something completely different. The track named 'The Pot' for example was confusing at first because i was unsure if it was actually Maynard singing.

Each and every song on the album is a perfect fit, from the fast paced opening of Vicarious to the creepy ending of Viginti Tres.

I have only listened to the album once so far, but i will be sure to listen to it religiously from now on.

My favorite tracks from the first time round were, 'Jambi'- A surprisingly heavy song with one of the most unique guitar sounds ever. '10,000 Days'- 11 mins of pure genius, one of the most beautiful Tool songs ive ever heard. 'Right in to' - A great song to rock out to, with some kick ass riffs and excellent lyrics.

Overall i am once again perfectly happy with this new serving of Tool, and i expect all the other Tool fans will love it also.

Nose.
