Product Description

Amazon.ca

With a majority of the songs on 10,000 Days clocking in well past the seven-minute mark, you wouldn't be entirely mistaken in thinking that the title of the album refers to how long it actually takes to make it through the whole thing. Two of the tracks--the sitar and tabla enhanced "10,000 Days (Wings Part 2)" and its suitably epic psych-rock sister "Rosetta Stoned"--even linger on for nearly a dozen leisurely minutes each. That's delightful news for the legion of Tool fans that have been waiting five years for the follow-up to 2001's Lateralus, which debuted at number one and sold 2.3 million copies in the United States. Singer Maynard James Keenan is back on mystical form after his hiatus with the politically slanted A Perfect Circle, sounding at once ethereal and eloquent as he calmly charges through the metal tempest of the opening track "Vicarious." The rest of the band, meanwhile, hits a series of high-flying moments with tracks such as "Jambi" and "The Pot." When Tool sounds as good as it does on these songs it's hard to get enough. Which makes it all the more baffling that a surprisingly large chunk of the disc is given over to mood-enhancing soundscapes like "Lost Keys" and "Vigniti Tres." Who has time for filler? --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars 10000 days May 7 2006
By hugues
Format:Audio CD
Well, what else can be said about this album?
Undertow came out in 93 and sounded like nothing else at that time. Then Tool disappeared. I was surprised when I found that they released a new album, Aenima. A true UFO. Something conceptual, far away from what could be heard from the rest of the crowd, again. At that point it seemed absolutely impossible for Tool to deliver something new, refreshing. But that's exactly what they did with Lateralus. UFO2. Better than aenima. Amazing...
So 5 years later where does Tool go? Did they push their concept one step forward? Is this one even better than Lateralus? Well the answer is perhaps yes and no at the same time. First of all, this is a wonderful, amazing album. Not something you can appreciate after one quick listen. Not something you can listen to while cooking or working on your computer. This album can give you a lot, but you need to give it attention and time. Nothing new actually, the same holds true for the 2 previous releases. I'm not sure I want to compare it to Lateralus and tell which one is the best. This wouldn't make any sense. What I should mention is that the recipe is pretty close to the one for Lateralus even though this album may be a bit easier to listen to. I don't mean commercial (even though they will sell hundreds of 1000s of this one as they did for their previous ones), just that it seems more straightforward, even though the structure of the songs is still quite ambitious and tortured...
How did they come to deliver songs like 10000days or Roseta stoned? who knows...
This is not important. They're back and no doubt you'll enjoy this one. If you don't know Tool yet, this album may be a good starter. But please don't panic, let it grow on you...
Pretty well done, definitely.

4.0 out of 5 stars The writers of stories sold Aug. 24 2006
Format:Audio CD
Tool has an incredibly raw edgy sound that is certainly not for someone looking for a quaint easy listening album. It has odd timings that flow surprisingly well but which may not please aesthetically. Following the example of their previous albums as well as Keenan's work with A Perfect Circle there are a number of filler tracks which don't really add to the album, but most of which don't take away from the listening experience either.

The first track, 'Vicarious', hits the listener with a hard fast sound that becomes addicting the more it's listened to. It almost comes across as sadistic until you realize that Tool is attacking the media's lust for violence in a very clever round about way. "Eyes on the tv, this tragedy thrills me ... it's no fun 'til someone dies". This track paints the scene for the intelligent lyrics and messages Tool will throw at the listener throughout the rest of the album. 'The Pot' has a very different feel than anything else on this cd and - as has already been noted - one of the most interesting and alluring sounds. Smart lyrics and a quick pace, it's the same old Tool with an original sound. I found 'Jambi' incredibly appealing as well except for a minute-and-a-half long squealing guitar solo approximately four minutes into the song which took away from my listening experience.

The only other track that really stuck out was 'Roseta Stoned', which was one of my personal favorites. It's an absurd tale told by a man who has (apparently) been contacted by aliens. 'Lost Keys' leads up to it, following the conversation of a nurse and a doctor who find a man hugging himself in the examination room and not speaking to anyone.

I really enjoy listening to this album! Tool has changed a bit, sure, but that is nothing to be upset about! I guess some people just wanted them to release another Lateralus or another Aenima. The music is not as loud as previous Tool albums, but the lyrics are very powerful! Just listen to the tracks 10000 days, or Right in Two and tell me otherwise. Perhaps the best track on the album is Rosetta Stoned, but make sure you listen to Lost Keys first. On a different note, the cover art and booklet alone are worth the price of this album (the cover is not as pictured above, it is way cooler!) check it out if you want to see what I mean. I have one more thing to say to all you people who are upset with Tool because this album has a different sound... if you want a band that puts out the same crap, album after album, then check out the Oasis catalogue. If you like some creativity and experimentation combined to form a really unique listening experience, get a Tool album! This one comes highly recomended by this fan! The only thing that upsets me is my inability to get tickets to see Tool live!

I've never been let down by a Tool album. This writ, my faith was starting to falter with Maynard's "A Perfect Circle" endeavors, whose last album Emotive, was absolutely terrible - I was worried that the APC stuff would trickle into and taint Tool's compositions; since Maynard sings for both bands and surely has say in the lyrical composition. Was I ever wrong!
This album is an extreme expression of master musicianship; evoking pictures that summon imagination, faith and all of the raw insticts that Tool compositions are expected to. The metered counterpoint and off-beat syncopes shared by the bass, guitar and drums are masterfully executed - their skill and talent is evident; least to say I've been glued to my headphones ever since I picked up 10000 days. This album's genius is clear, definitely the best Tool album yet, and without doubt the absolute best in its genre. Thank you Tool...this was exactly what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD
Tool is an awesome band lead by vocalist Maynard James Keenan. He is also the vocalist for 2 other great bands, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. I highly recommend them all.

So the product isn't as I remember back in the day but it is still great quality. I can see that the plastic papery material will certainly wear out over time.
