5 stars I am completely sickened that 'Undertow' got the review it recieved. The ONLY other 15 year old album in my stereo played consistantly is the original 'RATM' album. Tool can't be classified as metal,grunge,alternative or pop. Undertow was as new and original as 'Badmotorfinger' or ooohhh aahhh "Ten'. Nirvana's Nevermind is long gone. Yet still I hear songs from 'undertow' from passing cars, bars and parties. This is a timeless album, up there with 'Dark side of the Moon'. Never out of date, and always making new fans.

I AM a Tool fan, and I prefer other albums....but Damn. None of us would be listening to Tool mainstream if not for Sober. Prison Sex or, 4', not to mention the ledgendary track 69...if you didn't eject the disc. Beats the living hell out of 'smelles like teen spirit'. And it is still selling like mad. One of the best rock/....records from the 90's. Hands down, and still being played by kids not old enough to remember the video. Very influential record. Along the lines of early Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly or Front 242 - before thier time.
