2 stars Can't really recommend this except to a true Tool collector. I believe Tool to be one of the great bands of hard/metal/prog (along with Mars Volta), but this collection is a very raw set of tunes that seem to be before the "prog-thang" happened to them. Loud, racous, raw, sometimes irritating, and not prog except for the title track. However, glimmers of what will be come through from time to time. Like many early releases of bands, this is interesting as a historical document but not really as a full Tool album. Eventually, though, they would get it right in a big way! 2 stars- collectors only
