4 stars 'Schism' - Tool (Single)

Forty-eight time signature changes. From that parameter alone, it would be hard to write a cohesive and successful song. But here it is; Tool's glorious opus and masterpiece-song.

This song has complexity, beauty and rage. I would not call myself a fervent Tool fan but this is a song that really resonates with me.

The video (as always for Tool) is very good. It's not like your typical video where the camera focuses on the singer strutting around. The video is almost like a cartoon; very cryptic and seemingly drug-induced. Strange.

I'm not the biggest fan of Lateralus, but it was worth the purchase if only for this song.
