Re: Tool - Fear Inoculum - August 30, 2019 -- IT IS FINALLY HAPPENING

I dunno, I saw Tool live a couple months ago and never had any of those issues. Of course, it was in a festival setting, Maynard was more front and center, and they did two songs off each album. Was fun.

Edit - Nevermind. It was 1 off Undertow and 1 off Opiate.

I may give the new album a listen, but the last song I remember them doing was Schism. I tuned out after that. I do think A Perfect Circle is awesome, but I would never see that band or Tool live just to see Maynard in the corner not acknowledging the audience, because he's so edgy.

Pretty much the same here. I saw them as one of the festival headliners last year, and they might as well have been just pumping in the audio and had mannequins on stage. Maynard was blacked out in the back corner.

I really wonder if Maynard's ego alone had more to do with the band not releasing an album in 13 years over all the legal issues reported.

Judging by the riffs, probably not.

Looks like the CD is sold out on amazon and Wal-Mart.

No, he's pretty much said he would've liked to release a Tool album sooner, but the music came to him (for him to write the words/melodies) really slowly this time, kinda putting it on the other band members.

True, he said on Rogan's podcast that the reason for no tools albums being allowed on streaming platforms was because of the other band members as well.

Considering APC and Puscifer have been streaming from the get go, that makes sense.

New song is a bit underwhelming but surely there will be a couple kick ass songs on the album, even though they will all be real long. One of the band members said there were only 7 actual songs and a couple interlude thingies. That means there are only 4 more songs that nobody has heard, considering they’ve been playing Descending and Invincible on tour for a little bit.

I always thought Tool was kind of overrated. Their music was never much more than "Eh, they're okay" for me, but they had great videos. They probably owe a lot of their success to the Quay brothers (who didn't actually direct their videos even though everyone thinks they did.)
