Prog Reviewer
3 stars 3.2/5.0 Tool fans were waiting for this album for a long time. But this is a bit of a disappointment. Overall, the album is good, but there are too many worthless (or close to worthless) tracks or "filler" (even if I don't like this expression) on the album: Lipan Conjuring, Lost Keys or Virginti Tres, as an example.

On the other hand, there are some great tracks; the first two are my favorite (with Right in two not far behind) and really this add to the disappointment as the album starts as a real masterpiece and end so badly. Between the semi-worthless and the great tracks, the rest of the album is af average quality, with good (but repetitive) rhythm, interesting voice (yet always the same thing), good lyrics (yet not that good either).

Adding to this the "prog-like copying theme" of the Wings two songs, which are not impressive at all, particularly the first one. It's exactly like if Tool was trying to copy what others have done before to stick a bit more to their prog 'image'. I realize this is not that clear; whatever, my point is just that this is nothing new. This is a good album, but it is not an essential one as it has too many weaknesses and it does not offer anything I did not listen hundreds of times before. 3.2/5.0
