5 stars Tool - Lateralus 5 *****

The master piece. Let's start up by saying this is one of the best modern albums troughout in prog IMO and I listen this ervery single day. The Album starts with the song "The Grudge" which is the song I Iisten more in the album,the song begins with a powerfull riff and has in a middle of the song another perfect riff and is a catchy one if you listen we have "Eon Blue Apocalypse" that is an "intro" to "The Patient", this set it's not one of my favorites in Tool music..but kinda like it too,"Mantra" it's the next one..I love this intro somewhat refreshing and relaxing kinda feeling to enter the classy song "Schism". Next we got "Parabol" + "Parabola" song,one of the most emblematic songs of tool as we know,this is a song for life. "Ticks & Leeches" starts up with a great drumming pattern and the song opens up with a good vibe and with the most "heavy" feel of the whole album.Heading up to "lateralus" the self titled song is a masterpiece like the most of the album,very good composition of a song, progression at his perfection...Now the last part of the album starting with the epic "Disposition" + "Reflection" I know that many people say the song is very repetitive,but in fact this song could not been better written (for me the best relaxing song by tool) Next "Triad" excelent prog riff! I love this..this one gives me bumps..good song, and the last but not the least is "Faap De Oaid" wonderful song..first I have to mention that I love this call to the area 51 and this is song relates me to some of Bass Communion albums like "Continuum 2" that gives an destructive ambient..and the song combines this with the radio call of art bell. "Faap de Oiad" means Voice Of God in a laguage that goes by the name of "Enochian" (A laguage invented by Edward Kelley in the 16th century) For the most curious, Edward said this laguage had been reaveled to him by angels.
