4 stars After 5 years waiting, 2 months since I read about a new record, and 2 weeks of intensive listening, I'm more than satisfied with 10.000 Days. But my first impression was disappointment, then I listened it again, and again disappointment. Hey, it's Tool! I tried again, and here I am. I'd say it's like Aenima, not a masterpiece, but an excellent album, or maybe I have to say an excellent band. And why I say all of this. Just because it was difficult to me to get into the album, so my advice, don't give up until several tries.

Chapter apart for "Wings", one of the best songs I've ever heard. If you haven't read the lyrics yet, what are you waiting for? Maynard's voice is a moan from start to finish, as you might know, dedicated to his mother, Judith Marie, who finally died after 27 years, or 10000 days on a wheelchair. Amazing song.

The album goes this way: A great beginning, very toolish, which last two songs. Then the wonderful 10.000 days. After that you find a kind of hard rock song, The Pot, just to be played in the radio. Good track but nothing more. Then, a funny story about aliens or, well, about the "chosen one" they contacted (can't remember what they said). Intension it's like a come back in some way to Lateralus, but inevitable to highlight the drumming. Right in Two is the second great moment of the album, I think. Excellent song, just pay attention. This one was the most difficult to me but, at the end, nothing to say. And the ending, again weird sounds nodding ET stuffs. By night you even can get afraid.
