There is no ideal place to start with Tool, just start.
This album is heavy, if you don't like heavy rock/metal you probably won't like this. If you have an inclination to listen to this type of music then I cannot recommend this album highly enough. The music is amazing, nothing technically difficult in the guitar/ bass playing lots of polyrhytmic drumming, which is excellent. The album is a rollercoaster ride, musically and lyrically. Soft sudddenly becoming heavy. Maynard is a great singer and his lyrics are mind blowing, if a little cryptic. Perfect if you like philosophy. The lyrics are not in the liner (go to the band website for these)...which is all Alex Grey paintings, again if you like spirituality and philosophy.
Musically and Lyrically this album is one which will encourage you to think. Should you choose to do so. You could just as easily "headbang" to it. As for coming to a conclusion on what it all means....well thats entirely up to you. The Individual.
This album is stunning...try it (Listen to it a few times and you won't be able to stop). Then go see them live. I doubt you'll be let down.
Tool are different. They're like the boy who stands in the corner of the playground, that has no friends, and is seen as weird, but you just know that he's got something up his sleeve. He's thinking something. From the first song of Tool's 'Aenima' album, 'Stinkfist', you'll find that if you bully this little boy he'll bite, hiss and scream at you. And then some. 'Aenima' is the album that changed a lot of people's opinions on music while sitting in their rooms with a guitar, so Tool really had nothing to lose, and since Aenima for the most part was a damn vicious affair, it was about time Tool tampered with the quiet, the quiet-loud, and dare I say it, an even more experimental formula. When 'Aenima' was released, nothing else sounded like it, and still nothing does, so if there's one thing that you know about buying a Tool record, it's that you're getting something unlike anything else. And that extends much further than 'Aenima'.
'Lateralus' was much anticipated upon it's release, and rightly so, there aren't many bands who can leave their fan base for 5 years with no new material and get away with it. Something else that there isn't many of is a band actually going and pulling it off and releasing a belter...Read more ›
It will be by no means something to make your head explode, especially for those who know what Tool have done in the past. Think of `Lateralus' as a step up from `Aenima', as it is certainly not indistinguishable from their previous work but shows the band knows exactly what levers to pull to progress. It's dismissing the limits to the band and almost certainly pushing the limitations to heavy rock/metal all by itself. This pap has been said time and time before, but `Lateralus' certainly does give something new to the listener.
Apart from the interlude tracks that let you relax for a while, there are too many good parts to say which are the best songs. Certainly the ones that make you sit up and pay attention include the perfect build-up song `The Grudge', the rather dark `Schism' and the title track. Additional favourites are `Parabol' and `Parabola' - `Parabol' being a build up track to `Parabola' - which both combine to make supersong (perhaps).
But here comes the problem: it is very hard to digest due to almost every song being an epic. This is a tremendous thing to overcome and as a result it is far easier to listen and appreciate a few songs at a time.
Tool's style is pretty much love or hate; the technical wizardry they pull off will either get on your tits or make you jump for joy.
