5 stars Every single record that TOOL has recorded is a masterpiece by itself. Why this hard statement?... mainly is because they have put a true 100% heart and mind in the process of those works. The band changed a member in this "transition" from UNDERTOW to AENIMA, but only to improve themselves. OK, let's start. this is a concept album, a complete "story" of weird events, surrounding the death, the mystery and the unknown. The first track is a place to start understanding the emotions of the singer (MAYNARD), THAT LEADS YOU TO A PASSAGE OF NOISE!!!, remeber this is just a first glance, is a complete rollercoaster with fast songs, mid-tempo and somehow "slow" heavy pieces, with instrumental features along the way. To be honest the best track of this record is the Title track, i mean, the song is a MASTERPIECE, so it shines by itself, but don't get fooled, the album is meant to be heard slowly and in the mood, so, try to listen, very carefully to every single note and stroke. This band is a BAND, a complete musicianship from the 4 members, shining as a whole. Now, this record is almost perfect, but what is clearly perfect is the artwork, and the cage itself, for those who live outside the USA, fight for the US record, it is very important to have it as an original copy, you're going to get astonished with it.
