4 stars Five years is a long time to wait for. And Tool delivered perfectly. The songs seem well structured and I admit, it wasn't a easy listen at first. But after listening a few times, the songs really stuck in. You either hate it or love it. 10 000days shows a progression in their music since lateralus. And seriously, I prefer Aenima to Lateralus. VICARIOUS: The song almost seems like a traditional prog song and is definitely an enjoyable listen. JAMBI: Great song with great lyrics. Great riffing with guitars and bass is a killer as well. WINGS FOR MARIE: Starting off slow and having a heavy riff in the middle, a reminder of the typical TOOL style. 10 000days: The title track for the album. A good epic although it will never match Aenima's Third Eye. Meaningful lyrics as well. THE POT: This song is rather enjoyable and somehow brings me back to Hooker with a Penis from Aenima. LIPAN CONJURING: Interesting interlude with indian chantings. LOST KEYS: The starting riffs are rather good for another interlude. ROSETTA STONED: One of my favourite tracks and reminds me of Aenima's H. INTENSION: A great song that sounds almost similar to Disposition on Lateralus. RIGHT IN TWO: The drumming is unique in this one, almost a tabla sort of drumming. Rather psychedlic as well. VIGINTI TRES: Another typical TOOL style, to end the album with weird sounds and deep talking. Overall, the album is an enjoyable listen and Tool shows a great amount of intensity and creativity. As for those who listen to the album and don't like it, if you are a true fan, you should know better than anyone else that Tool is unpredictable in such matters where music is concerned. Tool shows a great amount of darkness in their music and is not afraid to go where other artists are afraid to tread. They believe in seeing through with their vision and these album shows it. Five years... But it was worth the wait.
