2 stars Debuts are usually hard and this one is no exception considering I find most of these tracks pretty average. But I still consider that it's better to make a so-so debut and later go on to make true masterpiece albums than to start with a masterpiece and then slowly fade away.

This EP features an unpolished raw sound that Tool will turn to their advantage on their upcoming releases but here it sounds just like a typical product of the music scene at the time. Opiate is far from something that anybody but true fans might be interested in. A definitive collectors item.

**** star songs: Sweat (3:46) Cold And Ugly (4:09) Jerk-Off (4:24)

*** star songs: Hush (2:48) Part Of Me (3:17) Opiate / The Gaping Lotus Experience (8:28)
