5 stars OVERRATED, that is what this album is. I'm sorry, but Tool stopped being Tool with this release. They used to be raw, in your face and heavy. This album loses all of that and feels like a totally different band. In my opinion, they should have never tried to do Progressive music, because they are not a progressive band and nothing about this album makes me think progressive. This album is boring, meandering and without balls. Yes its a decent and solid album, but overall I rarely have any desire to listen to this album and that is the most important part.

Opiate, Undertow and Aenima are incredible albums which I can listen to over and over again without getting bored, but Lateralus just drags and pushed this band into a direction that really ruined them.

Also on one final note, 10,000 days is complete and utter garbage, which is also known as Lateralus part 2. That album is awful and made me stop listening to Tool.
