4 stars Well first off I would like to say that I have been an avid TOOL fan ever since I heard Opiate way back in 1992. Having said that I have to admit that the first time I listened to this album I was quite disappointed. I felt that they used too much filler sounds where they could have put more song (Lipan Conjuring, Viginiti Tres for example). But everytime I listen to the CD I like it more and more and I find myself only wanting to hear it again when I'm not listening to music (at work etc...). The songs are unlike anything out there right now and seem to get better and better with each listen. As usual the lyrics are superb. I recommed printing off a copy of the lyrics and then listen to the whole album while you read them. Definite A+ for lyrics. The CD on a whole is much more enjoyable when listened to from start to finnish. I am realy impressed with Justins' bass work on this album, he seems to be getting better and better. Danny is amazing as usual, probably his best work yet. Maynards vocals are subdued a tad too much and are hard to hear at times, but his voice sounds beter than ever. Adams' guitar work is good and his sound is typical TOOL. I do think he could have wrote better solos on some tracks but the drum and bass lines make up for it.(The guitar work on Lateralus is hard to top). TOOL is a rare band and their work is much better than most anything out their today. Having said that I don't think this is TOOLs' best album but it is great in its own right. My personal fav track up to this point has to be #10 - Right In Two. An awesome TOOL song lyricly and musically. It's not very often a song makes us take a second look at how we treat each other and our planet. I think that will end up being the legacy of this album as a whole. Definitly worth the five year wait.
