3 stars This was my first Progressive Metal CD ever, so, naturally, it's hard for me to look back on it and say anything truly negative. However, that fact remains that Tool just isn't that good.

When I first heard them, of course I was blown away, but now their music just comes off as pretentious, ignorant and dull. Lateralus is probably an okay place to start if you're just getting into this type of music, but otherwise, there's just so much more out there.

Tool is one of the most overrated bands of all time in my opinion. How I ever liked them is beyond me, because listening to this music now,everything seems very bland and distant. It gives me a headache. Don't get me wrong, DC is a great drummer (although he's seeming less and less original all the time) and Maynard is a decent singer, but overall, they're a very average band and I say this having listened to them for years. Most Tool fans just refuse to wake-up and realize that their favorite band simply isn't all that good.

Upon buying 10,000 Days, I actually said, "Ugh, what happened to them? They used to be so good." Well, as it turns out, nothing happened to them. They've always been this way. Sorry, Tool just isn't my cup of tea. It's very average music that thinks it's better than it actually is. 3/5
