this is going to be an odd review for me to write becaus i am just coming accross this album in 2011; i was a tool fan through my youth then my interest sort of cooled yet i always appreciated the music and its stumbling upon this one day was quite an experience. like many reviews above at first listen i was unimpressed and felt my lack of interest in the band for the past 6 years was jutsified...then i decided to spin it a second time and third and so forth...i dislike comparing albums to previous ones (lateralus) but i must say this is not a step back or musicialy stale or empty even compared with the glorious lateralus, at first i was disapointed maynard was'nt screaming and angry as hell but then i came to the realisation that as artists they evolve and if you want screaming and anger go to the previous albums..if they would have tried to make a duplicate of lateralus they would have been slammed by critics saying they were unimaginative..and here they deliver something in the tool style yet very new and very beautifull and still get was a lose lose following lateralus befor the vinyl hit the press...i think taken as a whole disregarding the bands past accomplishments it is a great success and taken with their past albums in mind i still feel strongly this is a step forward in they development...more polished(i must admit i love tool for nasty songs like ticks and leeches so this is saying alot)...i feel if pppl would actualy sit down take the tool blinders off and of course listen through high quality headphones everyone who is a tool fan will love this album i give it a 4 out of 5
