Product Description

Product Description

With its heavy-duty distortion, weighty rhythms, and cynical lyrics, Tool is a heavy metal band for the '90s. Rather like Metallica circa ...And Justice for All, the sound is focused heavily on texture, with vocals and guitars layered one atop the other, and heart-pounding drums underlying everything. There's not a whole lot of variety on Tool's second full-length album--most of the songs start off fairly low-key, kicking into high gear for the chorus, and repeat--but Maynard James Keenan's distinctive voice, the prog-rock stylings over a heavy metal base, and a supremely unhealthy dose of vitriol make this the perfect album to bang your head to.

An historical landmark of the American culture, AENIMA is possibly better than any other band's greatest hits CD. That's because it plays itself out like a greatest hits collection. Most of the songs are so epic and so destructive that the "annoying" intermission/filler tracks are necessary to divide the songs and let you gather your senses. Many of the individual songs are so grandiose, that I actually think of this CD as many mini-albums combined into one (with separator tracks in between). Many of these individual songs are higher on my ranking list than other rock band's albums or even collected libraries. These songs are simply deep... and then you start to hear the hooks... then you start to understand the lyrics. It takes a long time to digest this stuff. At some point in time, each of these songs has been my favorite. "Eulogy" may still be my favorite, and it's eight years old! This will probably always be the best album of all-time, in my mind. I don't see how anyone can ever outshine it.

I think this review will have both Tool fans and Tool haters angry with me. So screw me, I don't care! Tool generally isn't heavy metal, but at times it can be. The darkness and anger are essential to Tool's art, and those of you that don't seem to get that need to get it, like RIGHT NOW! I am so sick of that being the reason why people rate it low! Also, the tracks take time to understand their message (print out copies of the lyrics and follow along; it helps). If you have a short attention span, then you will HATE this ablum, for Tool is meant to build on you over time, with layers of musical colors adding to the tracks' suspense. Their lyrics are deep and contain a great deal of philosophy and theories on such topics as armageddon and false martrydom. It is refreshing to hear a band make meaning through their lyrics, and having the best drum licks in the entire universe doesn't hurt, either! Wow, Danny Carey, you are a GOD!!! Eulogy, Aenema, and Third Eye are the greatest tracks on the album, possibly in the history of music (but that's tough to say!) My only problem with this album is the tracks on the album that are not actual songs, and the fact that there are too many of them. Only if you are a dire Tool fan will you enjoy them. Though they probably are on there for a reason, I buy albums to hear music, and tracks like Useful Idiot and Innermission are not music. I will reiterate the fact that Tool's lyrics and music are not catchy, and they are not supposed to be! They captivate you as you listen on, but it will take a couple of listenings for one to hear everything Tool wants you to hear. Although Aenima as an album is not perfect, requiring you to skip around to find the good stuff (hey Tool fans, I like Tool too, but you really do have to consider the album as a whole here!), the tracks themselves kick so much ass that I would recommend this album, and Tool for that matter, to anyone who loves rock/alt. metal.

I love Tool. Undertow is by far the best Tool album ever. This having been said, Aenima is also a very good album, however it doesn't quite live up to the standards that were set by Undertow. The problem here is that the album is simply too...long. Some of the tracks just go on for too long, and while Maynard's voice helps to keep it somewhat interesting, it ends up just being physically draining to listen to this album all the way through. There are however, some fantastic moments on this album, and no Tool fan should be without it. However, casual fans should stay away, because they will be dissapointed.

I know no one will ever read this. I don't care. This is my favorite cd EVER aside from Pink Floyd's Animals. Those two NEVER leave my changer. Tool, I fear, will never make another cd like this, much like the Deftones will never make another Adrenaline. Unfortunate as this thought is, it is made "all better" by the fact that this great recording is made immortal through the blessing that is the compact disc. Tool is most excellent...they are, I feel, the Pink Floyd of this acursed generation, melding their album art with the music. Cam De Leon is now one of my favorite artists, along with, Giger, Dali, Escher, and none other than Tool's own Adam Jones. In short, Tool's ultimate opus lies in this album. Most excellent.

... I guess Tool is just one of those bands you love or hate; with a vengance. One would imagine that the band would be quite pleased to see such a passionate variance of opinion about their work. It means they're doing their job as artists. I, personally, am not a big fan of rock music in general. I think one of the reasons some of the reviewers were disappointed is because Tool is quite often mistakenly classified as "Heavy Metal". Before you buy this you should know that this is not Metallica, Sepultra, or Korn. If you haven't or can't imagine sitting through an entire performance of a symphony, then Tool is not for you. If you want to dance, sing along, or bang your head and "throw goats", Tool is not for you. If you enjoy LISTENING to creative, well-crafted, emotionally stirring modern music, you may want to give Tool a shot. But be warned! This CD is not without flaws and you may want to have your remote handy so you can skip to the good stuff.
Here's what I didn't like:

1. FILLER with a capital "F". Other reviewers have commented on this as well and they were right on the money on at least this point. The only bit of filler I would've kept was the 56 second "Intermission". I don't know how many noticed, but it's the first 56 seconds of the following song played on a hokey little organ. It's pretty amusing. The fact that there are only about 8 actual songs on this is what prompted me to give it 3 1/2 stars.

2. Most of the songs do have the same structure. ... You'll hear that they both have the same loud-timechange-soft-loud-timechange-soft formula to them. So yes, they do have a formula, but at least it's a formula that works!

3. Hooker with a Penis.
