5 stars This is the TOOL masterpiece and overall an amazing album, music created by master musicians. This is their best work next to Aenema and there is not a dull moment on this album. Every song is not to be overlooked, the albums starts off with the heartpounding track The Grudge, what a amazing vocal performance from Maynard, the drums at the end of the Grudge are out of this world good. next is ion blue, a good intro by Adam Jones, this leads into the beautiful song The patient. This song builds up so great a very epic track. Next is mantra, the intro that leads to Schism, this a popular Tool song you might hear a lot , it opens with great bass playing by Justin, a solid tool track. Parabol and parabola are song that got together with each other, first Parabol is very slow paced song with haunting vocals by Maynard, the song fades into the hard rocking Parabola. This song features some awesome solos by Adam Jones, nice tarck this one is. Next is Ticks and Leeches, a track which is very different from all the other on this album. Very hard powerful vocals by Maynard and the highlight of this song is Danny Carey's drumming. Never have i heard drumming like this before, no can even come close to this amazing drum performance. The title track Lateralus could be the greatest Tool track ever created, such an epic song. If you ever see them live wait for song this to be performed, it will amaze you.The next 3 songs are like a trilogy and these are the highlights of the album, my favorites also. Disposition starts it off very mellow,a tool song very unlike any other, nice and relaxing song. It blends in to my Favorite song on the album Reflection. The song starts of with awesome tribal drumming by Danny, and the song gets better as it goes on,also great lyrics on this track. Triad is next, a instrumental song that just features Justin,Adam,and Danny. All three just jam out on this song, very underrated musicians. Such unique/epic/amazing music, Lateralus is a album any music fan should own. 5 stars no doubt
