2 stars 'Parabola' - Tool (Single)

'Lateralus' had a few really great songs on it, such as 'The Patient' and 'Schism.' There were also songs, like this that I could never get into. It's decent hard rock, but it doesn't have that sense of creativity and innovation that a band like Tool should be doing. The video, on the other hand is one of the strangest videos I've ever seen, and even scary at times.

'Parabola' isn't terrible, but it doesn't give me that feeling of 'never having heard something like this before' that I've felt a suprising number of times from this band. The things I love about Tool are always the sonic nuances and clarity the music brings, but 'Parabola' doesn't really work out too be too much more to me than a hard rock song accompanied with an overdose of guitar sludge.
