4 stars Tool continue with their distinctive Progressive Metal style they have developed since they really found their feet on third release "Aenima". Opening two tracks "Vicarious" and "Jambi" are as good as anything they have done so far, full of the trademark Tool sound. All band members stamp their own distinctive style on the songs and you know you couldn't be listening to anyone else.

An excellent production allows each band member to shine through. It's great to hear Bass playing of the excellence shown by Justin Chancellor shine through with such clarity. Although not sounding Like Chris Squire or Geddy Lee his playing is allowed to shine the way it does with these guys being well up in the mix.

Guitarist Adam Jones alternates between heavy riffing and lighter shades with ease which has always been a distinctive characteristic of the Tool sound. One of the album highlights being his soaring playing on fifth track and perhaps album highlight, "The Pot".

Danny Carey shows why he's one of the best and perhaps underrated Drummers in Rock at the moment with powerful well executed playing throughout the album.

Last but not least, Maynard James Keenan powerful vocals are on top form demonstrating just what a great singer he is.

The album does tail off a bit towards the end which stops it being the equal of "Lateralus" but overall a fine release.

By the way, if you don't like the music you can have hours of fun with the 3D glasses attached to the cover looking at the images inside the booklet.
