Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I sure wish this was true. But I have a hard time believing it would be only 12 songs and run 2 and a half hours. Each fucking song is 12 to 14 minutes long. I already don't like that. But it's so Tool, though.

Whatever, I'll take whatever new music from Tool I can get.

Buzz Osbourne of The Melvins recently said that no song Tool was currently working on was shorter than 12 minutes.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I like Tool but I top out at about six minutes. I can't imagine this holding my interest at 12 mins. a song over the course of an album.

I have no problem with long songs.

I'd be thrilled for some new Tool(finally).

I'll believe it when I can click Buy on Amazon for their new album. There is thread on here started by me in 2011 with Tool guaranteeing the album will be released in 2012.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I'm sure that reddit rumor is just as credible as the time Tool intentionally leaked fake album details before Lateralus came out.

I believe nothing until the band itself posts firm details and the first single.

I expect the new Tool album to come out after the Cubs win the World Series this year. We won't ever get to hear the album because as soon as the Cubs win we will all be swallowed by the earth and burned in molten lava.

I just want something similar to Aenima. Some of their more "recent" albums the songs just go on forever with instrumental stuff.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

Tool is (was?) one of my favorite bands. But at this point I've just kind've accepted that they are done. Should this be real though......I'll be all over it.

That's where I'm at, too, even though they have been doing shows and tours over these years. I'll believe it when I see the album delivered to my front door, and when that happens, I'll give it a lot of my time, I'm sure.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I'll get it but I've never cared to see Tool live ever. They're a glorified jam band that play well and have thoughtful lyrics but I would probably be bored out of my mind at one of their shows. Now if it's true and this new album comes out and those songs are as long as the track listings claim - I will be breaking out a bottle of booze and just spinning the vinyl at home. I like A Perfect Circle better in terms of performance.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I saw APC twice, and both shows were fantastic.
I saw Tool three times, and all three shows were phenomenal.
I saw Puscifer once, and it was probably the best of the bunch, even if I don't like the material as much.

So, um... Tool is great to see in a live setting. Or, at least they were when I saw them. Can't believe how long ago that really was. Damn.

As for vinyl... there's never been an official release of 10,000 Days (lots of unofficial, and I'm not throwing my money at the equivalent of a CD-to-vinyl rip). The Lateralus vinyl is a picture disc (I'm not a fan...), and the Opiate and Undertow official releases are good. Aenima, I don't have.

I hope they do better with this than they do with Lateralus, though.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

I thought the next Tool album will be the last under the volcano label and then they are free - heard they can't stand being under that label and that is the reason for the delays between albums. May be completely false but I've heard/read about it more than once.

"The Outsider" by APC has been in constant rotation for me as of late along with "The Noose". Great music - hoping Tool can come out stronger than their last effort - not that 10,000 days was bad or anything, I still really like it but....after repeated listens, I just didn't go back to it as much as their older stuff.

Also, I'm not a fan of overly long songs.

I have seen Tool close to ten times or so and let me tell you, they are ANYTHING but boring live.

I'm a prog guy so I'm all about epic songs, but I'm with you on Tool. I much prefer the shorter stuff.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

Sorry nerds, but Lateralus (the song) followed by Disposition/Reflection/Triad is the best ~35 minutes the band has ever created.

I don't think many Tool fans would disagree with that.

Oh, I know. But this talk about how Tool's short songs are preferred? Bananas, I say.

I've seen them 4 times, and I get more bored with them as time goes on. The music is fantastic, the sound is phenomenal, but as a band onstage, not much to look at. There isn't enough variation in the setlists to keep me coming back. I do still strongly suggest going and seeing them if someone never has.

Re: Rumor: Tool Will Release 2.5 Hour, Double-Album Decem This Fall

Yeah, Tool doesn't have much, if any, of a stage presence live. Their shows are all about the musicianship and they basically play a greatest hits show on ever tour. Every time out you are going to get Maynard hiding behind a curtain and 12-13 tracks that will always include The Grudge, Sober, Aenima, Etc.

I love the Salival-version of Pushit. It's always cool when they make big changes to a song like that.

OK maybe I will finally spend the time to get familiar with the last two Tool records before this one. There's so much there I feel like I never really digested them. Maybe 4-5 repeated listens will do it.

That's what I'm talking about. I need presence, etc.

I'll join in with the lack of stage presence.... Definitely a jam band. Not bad, just not interesting.
