Prog Reviewer
3 stars After 5 years of long wait, 10,000 Days came with a taste of disappointment. "Vicarious", "The Pot" and "Right in Two" are good tunes, but basically cliches of the band classics. "Wings" (part 1 and 2) add for the first time an emotional core to a Tool album, but the result could be much better, particularly the first one, which can be boring as the monotonous line of guitar seems to never end. They lack precisely what the band does not have - keyboard atmospheres. Particularly positive moments of the album are the strange guitar solos created by Adam Jones.

Overall, it is a good album, with great bass and guitar riffs, nice vocals and magnificient drum rythms, but it does not keep the pace of originality Tool had made before. It does not represent trully a step forward for the band, insufficient for such a long wait.

TRoTZ | 3/5 |
