If you should hear one record, should your interest in the occult "remain and never leave you" then this album is the one you should listen too.

With mystical and time arrangements to confuse even the most advanced intellectual alien....the songs on this record represent something quite astounding.

Very unusual, I had wanted to get 'Stinkfist' for a very long time.

Tool's 2nd and angriest output, Aenima is an amazing album, doesn't matter what genre you listen to, this is pure great songwriting and musicianship.

This album is my favourite Tool album as for me,its the most complete, my old small misgivings with Tool is an excess of extraneous infill tracks,which are themselves interesting,but this album scans beautifully, probably not as strong in some sense in comparison to Lateralus or 10.000 Days, but this album is consistant and keeps me engaged, for anyone not familiar with this band,I would start with this one. Tool,one of the best rock bands..full stop.

I discovered Tool on the web and bought this album after listening repeatedly to several of the tracks. the music is designed to be listened to, and repays careful listening. The initially strongest element for me was the use of rhythm, but there is a lot more to Tool's carefully crafted songs, as they make skilful use of texture, timing, the sonorities of different instruments and dynamics. Original, gripping and an experience

This album was a huge part of my music life back in the 90’s and it’s still a truly amazing album from a fantastically trippy band 🤘

That is, presuming you have the patience to listen to a song longer than three and a half minutes and isn't about breaking stuff.
Anyway, how can I possibly dislike a band that loves Bill Hicks as much as I do? The final track on this CD is a sort of homage to him. As well as the sample at the beginning of the song, the lyrics are based on one of Bill's sketches. Check Bill out - he told the truth and made it hysterically funny - another dead hero, as Tool put it on the inside cover of Aenima.
If you haven't heard Tool before, think of Nine Inch Nails hard edged crunch and emotional vocals crossed with System Of A Down's incisive wit and individuality and throw in a handful of Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin prog rock brought smack up to date. That doesn't go anywhere near explaining Tool, but it's a start.
I'd have to say the real stars of Aenima are the first two tracks, but there are many other gems on the album. The opener, Stinkfist is one of the best songs I have ever heard - twisted as the lyrics are! Then Eulogy is blissfully psychedelic and the subject matter is sarcastic and cutting. Then there's the searingly emotional H and the wonderful Forty Six and Two. By that time I'm usually so blissfully entwined in the music I start to drift off into that place only really good music can take you to!
Some people slam or plaudit Tool's music for being intricate (it isn't, but every note is in the right place). But I would say it is the space within the music that makes them so totally hypnotic.

Tool's second studio album is the perfect stop gap between their early, raw work and their later layered melodies and floating lyrics. Contains some of Tool's best tracks.
