5 stars I have owned this album since the year it was released so I figured now would be a great time to review what is probably my favorite Tool album. First I will start off by saying that I own all of Tools albums as well as Opiate and Salival their boxset. I consider all of Tools work to be very good, from the raw power of Opiate to the refined opus 10,000 days. I often say that Tool gets better and better with each album, but Aenima is my favorite. This, to me, is a complete album. It has powerful tracks and interesting filler. While I can listen to songs from the album by themselves, it is much more enjoyable to listen to as a whole. The album starts off with STINKFIST which is a wonderful opening song. It is short (by Tool's standards) and it doesn't disappoint. The ending of the album is quite is displayed in the 13+ minute sonf THIRD EYE. It opens up with the previous filler track blending in with a few short skits form Bill Hicks. What follows is what will become the norm for Tool on their later albums...long songs that contain extreme highs, lows, and lots of build up. If you have never heard this album, but enjoy what Tool does musically, you NEED to own it! I cannot sit here and go through each song in between because I will do neither the songs or the entire album justice. Just go out and by it and I promise you will not be disappointed.

4.5 Stars!
