3 stars OK, here's the thing. As much as I love this band and love every last one of their albums... I must say I was thoroughly dissapointed with the overall content of this album. The way the album comes across is... too much strong messages within the songs being presented but as far as the music quality goes, it's pretty much non-existant. Fair enough, the start of the album is excellent right up to the very end of The Pot... After that, you might as well change the CD as far as I'm concerned.

Vicarious - Powerful, strong and full of thought. A well presnted piece of musical art Jambi - Melodic and gentle in a way, when compared to Vicarious Wings for Marie (parts 1 & 2) - One of the best songs on the album, without a doubt. Very powerful message, well documented highly recommended as an all-time great prog-metal song. The Pot - Beautifully artistic. Great vocals where Maynard really shows his skill Lipan Conjuring - A fill in track, no comment. Lost Keys & Rosetta Stoned - Moderately OK IMHO. I know the heavy bass is a massive part of the song, but to me, it brings the album down with it's noise. Intension & Right in Two - Too soft, not enough actual Tool sound involved. Fair enough, it makes a good closure for the album but to be honest, an ending like the mighty Faaip De Oiad would have been much better Viginti Trees - I mean, honestly. What the hell?!?! No comment, it shouldn't be there.

Overall, 3 of 5 stars I'm afraid. Nothing like the 5 I'm about to give Ænima...
