5 stars This is the album that not only defines Tool itself, but could be a great introduction to Prog-Metal for anyone, being complex enough to analyze and investigate, but simple enough to be just as accessible to newcomers and even casual listeners as well.

Every piece (including the filler tracks) add Tool's sense of life itself to the album, and without a single one the album would feel incomplete.

Like any good prog-metal album, these songs are great as stand-alones but when pieced together, they create something completely breathtaking and make for an essential purchase. It's also one of my favorite albums of all time, prog-rock or otherwise. You just have to listen to this thing. It's a masterpiece.
