    I honestly have an extremely difficult time getting into anything after Deliverance/Damnation. You would think I'd be into Opeths later did because I love 70s fusion, but nope.

    I dig fusion, too. The problem is that Opeth digs it but can't make it interesting.

    I found it interesting that the reviewer Frank claimed that he was from back in '92, from the first EP, but then did not think that Tool is selling out, laying down, or sucking up to the man.

    I still can't help but wonder if he might have a dope Beastie tee somewhere in his closet...

    Love that song. I wish there was a 20 minute extended version with quiet rain sounds.

    Signing up two metulz players at the exact moment he wanted to move away from metulz sure was a weird move. Lopez would have made it work better for sure.

    Back on Tool, they're everywhere, and I'm living for it. So, so hyped. There's a reason my Carvin is a greenish silverburst, and there's a reason I own a VH4. I now love these things and have got my own tone from them, but Adam Jones' guitar playing and sound is a massive, massive influence on me. More than that it's just a pleasure to listen to, can't wait to hear his new tones and work.

    As a calming, reflective, meditative segue, it can only be surpassed by Die Eier Von Satan.

    Yeah, there's nothing more meditative than a dessert recipe spoken by Maynard in German language

    Maynard did that? I always assumed it was some other dude.

    It was some other dude, his name's Marko Fox (according to the Aenema credits).

    EDIT: Apparently he's in a band with Danny Carey called "ZAUM"

    I finally listened to the song and I was underwhelmed to say the least. I'm also really annoyed that the physical release will have 3 fewer songs than the digital release.

    Unless Fear Inoculum is some kind of troll, I won't be buying either version of this album.

    I haven't listened and am super excited for the whole album. However, I'm confused by the format. It appears you can only buy the CD as part of an £80 package. That's a lot of money. I'd genuinely have paid a lot for this record, but that's too much. I don't really want to D/L as an mp3 for sound quality reasons - I want to experience this thing PROPERLY, full whack.

    So as a fan what am I meant to do in terms of getting a high quality version to listen to first day?

    A CD doesn't have space for all 80 minutes of music, so the interlude tracks, or some of them, will be left off the CD.

    Ah, I didn't even realize how long the album was. Looking at the length that Apple Music shows, I see that now.

    If only there was an option to split the album across multiple CDs, and a long established history of other bands doing just this.

    At $45, would a second CD really have cut too much into profit margins?

    They should've just released a DVD and added visuals to the 80 minutes of music and kept the pure audio digital only. Now that would've been something new.
