4 stars Aenima whetted the appetite. What does Lateralus offer?

Immediate impact with a heavy, at times thrashy, track; The Grudge. Does this set a new direction? No, the gentle Eon Blue Apocalypse leads into The Patient (which is fortunately available on stream on this site). Patient opens with characteristic subdued vocals building slowly. As always with Tool the particular instrument sound superb. However vocal arrangements have improved and show off Keenan's style and range to better effect.

This builds on the achievement of Aenima. A combination of improved musicianship and more mature arrangement make this another essential album for the prog metal section of your collection and an excellent addition for any general progger.
