3 stars 'Vicarious' - Tool (Single)

I believe this was the first Tool song I ever listened to, and the first video I watched. The visual element of Tool has always been something that I've found very interesting and creative. This video is less trippy than some of the more obscure ones they have released in their time, but more of a commentary on war, and the way it is perceived. To that effect, it works with the song very well. Hearing a song about how people 'vicariously' experience things like war and devastation through their televisions without really understanding it works perfectly with the media footage of artillery shellings and tank advances.

Music alone, this was a great way to open up the album it belongs to, and a great song to get me into this band.
