4 stars Aenima definitely deserves a little reckognition amoung prog fans. I'll go track by track, out of 10...

Stinkfist- In my opinion this song is both heavilly rocking and beautifully sweet at the same time. The vocals are kind of spell binding to me, how they can go from soft and sweet to rocking in two seconds. Great song... 9

Eulogy- The intro was annoying to me the first time I listened to it, but after a while I learned to dig it. And the song is pretty good all the way through. 7.5

H.- Awesome song, very proggy. It's got some nice movement in the moo of the song, which is really emotional and what not. 8

Useful Idiot/ Forty-Six and 2- Useful Idiot could have been cut a little and just added to Forty-Six and 2 in my opinion. Forty-Six and 2 is very impressive. This goes without saying, but great drum work by Carey. The time signature change during the breakdown is really sweet. 10

Message to Harry ManBack- While the piano is beautiful in the backround... I think they should have cut it short, or turned it into a real song. I'm not a fan of fillers. 5

Hooker With a Penis- Cool song, dumb title. 7

Intermission/ Jimmy- Intermission is the best song on the album, j/k. But I love it, one of the few Tool fillers I can dig. Jimmy is really cool, and relaxing. 8

Dier Von Satan- Wasted track... 3

Pushit- One of the best of the albumn, if not the best. Really sweet sounding A minor key... works well with the whole album. It's like a trippy... twisted love song. 10

Cesaro Summability- Sounds cool, but they could have used this track space, along with Message to Harry Manback, Dier Von Satan, and Ions to make another song. 5

Aenema- I honestly don't know what to sy about this song... but I really like it. 9

(-) Ions- same as Cesaro Summability. Except that this one is way too long. 3

Third Eye- I don't think there is anything to say about this song... except PRYING OPEN MY THIRD EYE! It's just and insane song. 9

Average comes out to 7.125... that over 2 is... 3.5. Because of good behavior we'll let it out w/ a 4.
