Product Description

Amazon.ca

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. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Think for yourself...question authority... July 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tool's Greatest Hits CD July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This review should be interesting....... Dec 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars great, but a little dissapointing also Sept. 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok, but not that genius lyrics Feb. 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD after I was so impressed by Lateralus, one of the best rock cd's I have ever heard (in fact five stars is not enough for Lateralus). Indeed, Tool are very talented musicians. You can also discover this on Aenema. You can like it or not, but Tool has an overwhelming sound full of rithm that never gets boring. However, while Lateralus has very good lyrics (apart from the one-minute-made low-quality lyrics of Ticks and Leeches), this CD is full of anger and swear, sometimes lacking respect for other people. Yes, the lyrics contain some creative aspects, but a lot of parts are becoming very boring and cheap by the overusage of swearing words and "try-to-shock" words. In addition these lyrics contain a very negative message. Real-life however is more complex than that, real-life cannot be classified in the oversimplified good/bad dichotomy. However I can understand that for some people life can indeed be a hell. And for those people, maybe the lyrics make sense for a small period of time. But in the long run the negative undertone does harm all of us, it encourages us to always confirm ourselfs that everything is bad instead of taking action and fighting for your luck in a positive way. And maybe these lyrics had a therapeutical effect for Maynard also, but the real challenge, James Maynard, is to try to fight in your life to make something positive of it. You definetely have the talent for it !!!. For me the real genius people fit into this fight-for-your-luck category. Only this latter category of people can be a real inspiration source for all of us. So while the Aenema lyrics contain some creative aspects, calling them intelligent and inspiring, is most of the time exagerated (just as calling these lyrics crap is also maybe exagerated).

My favorite song ( Third Eye ) skips right out of the box. No visible scratches, and I am rather unlucky, so it may be the only cd in a million that doesn't work. Read more
