4 stars The best of the best from this band. LATERALUS was released by Tool in 2001. Unfortunately, Tool always seems to put a few sound scape tracks and useless short interlude tracks that keep their work from being 5 stars for me. Here on LATERALUS, "Mantra" is a good example of this. "The Grudge", "Reflection" and the title track are what makes this a great album, though. They are near perfect Tool songs and show the chops this band is capable of when they wish. Those three tracks are worth the price of admission alone on LATERALUS. Easily 4 stars for this effort.
