3 stars This album comes with a unique case, it’s provided with a pair off glasses(??) to see the 3d booklet inside. The booklet contains pictures related to the cover, band members, and tracklisting. Lyrics? Again, they don’t put their lyrics in their album. Also, it contains a hidden nugget on the band member’s picture.

Now, straight to the music..

• Vicarious; A great opening track, starts with guitar and bass work with some toybox sound for the background. Again they have succesfully made a great opener to interest the listener toward listening the album.

• Jambi; starts with ashtonishing guitar work and then.... nothing more, not as good as Vicarious though.

• Wings for Marie Pt.1 – 10,000 Days (Wings Pt.2); This is the masterpiece of the album!! Slowly build, but very exciting and very interesting. The first part is more like the opener to the ‘real’ track [Wings Pt.2]. and the second part strengthens the first part, with the sound of rain in the background that makes this track more emotional. This two-part songs makes this album worth to buy!!

• The Pot; Quite easy-listening track for Tool, but the melody repeats again and again until the track ends.

• Lipan Conjuring; the 1st filler, sound like a praying shaman.

• Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann); 2nd filler, what the?! Why did they put two fillers in a row?? guitar feedback sound with repeating guitar riff in the background, and some chatting

• Roseta Stoned; A really boring track, don’t waste your time listening to this track. Next..

• Intension; ......another so-so track, nothing special, similiar to Disposition from Lateralus

• Right in Two; hmm,again another track that i found not attractive at all.

• Viginiti Tres; The last song is the last filler.. it has some creepy sound at the end.

Overall, this is not Tool’s best album They made a great opener but didn’t manage to keep up the excitement throughout the whole album.The only thing that makes this album worthy is the 2-part masterpiece “Wings for Marie Pt.1 – 10,000 Days (Wings Pt.2)” The rests are just songs that Tool played.

So Three Stars is enough.
