Product Description

Product Description

Everything about Tool's fourth album (2001) is an experience, starting with the packaging, which consists of liner credits printed on a translucent plastic sleeve over the CD and a booklet that layers anatomical representations atop one another--the first page pictures musculature and blood vessels; the next, bones; the third, internal organs; and so on. It's worth describing the packaging of Lateralus because it says much about the astonishing music within. Maynard James Keenan and company understand the expectations riding on this much-anticipated release and they've delivered the goods! While it remains in the Tool tradition of trance-inducing progressive metal, Lateralus is tighter, clearer, crisper, and all around a notch above their admirable previous releases. Aenima was marred by muddy production and a certain predictability. Undertow had a cleaner sound but wasn't as confident or adventurous. With Lateralus, Tool have raised an already lofty bar still higher by coming up with a collection that kicks major ass.

Tool have proven themselves once again that they are far and away the best musicians out there today. "Lateralus" combines everything that makes this band great, including ultra-heavy guitar, thunderous bass, and of course, the impeccable drum beats laid down by Danny Carey. Maynard rounds out this group with his haunting lyrics and voice that ranges from creepy to full of rage and acidic hatred. "Lateralus" is the smoothest album I have heard in years, maybe ever heard. It is equal on a conceptual basis with Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and anything that Rush ever put out. Each and every song here is an epic unto itself, most of the tracks spiralling over seven or eight minutes, something that music today really lacks. Each song can keep you entranced until the very end, even throught the odd musical journeys that are the bridges and breakdowns. Everything about this album is perfect, there is nothing more to say than that. This is a must-have for anybody who likes metal, or any other type of music that wishes to push borders and tingle the senses.
Best tracks: "The Grudge", "Lateralus", "Ticks and Leeches", "Parabola", "Schism"

Finally, an album without distortion. Excellent production and as I read somewhere, Tool can claim this as theirs. One of the best albums I have heard in a long time. Reminds me of a heavier faster Pink Floyd.

Tool is basically at the cutting edge of progressive and experimental rock and Lateralus is blatant proof of this fact. This music suceeds in blending and synthesizing sounds to create that complexity and sophistication that is becoming more common (and i'm glad)amongst contemporary music. This band simply knows how to take emotional content and translate it into music with hard intruments as their tools (no pun intended) - not to forget Maynard's vocals of course. I would listen to track 1 a few times if you want to get a feel for this masterpiece. In conclusion, it takes a refined ear to truly appreciate this stuff.

The same guy that gave this album 1 star and called it horrible also gave Godsmack a 5 star rating! That is hilarious...enjoy your Godsmack moshermaniac...If that makes you happy, then enjoy, but it's too bad, because you're missing out...I don't believe that Tool takes an "open-mind" or special brain power of any sort...it is harder listening, for sure, and if you can understand what they're doing technically, well I guess it helps in some ways and hurts in others...a lot of times music is more mesmerizing when you're blissfully unaware of what the musicians are doing technicaly...it adds so magic... and sometimes knowing what they're doing can let you into the fantastic world of creative and artistic music and that's satisfying in itself...Lateralus is much more complicated than most music, but in the end it all comes down to taste...if you don't like it you don't like it, but this is LIGHT YEARS ahead of a group like Godsmack in every respect...that's not really an opinion, that's definately a fact
I just think there is so much to get from this album...it really is an experience and you can take a lot from it and use it to do some good...I don't think it's dark at all, but that's just me

Format: Audio CD
Tool is one of the greatest bands of the 90's. Their releases just keep getting better and better. Their first full length, Undertow was mediocre. Aenima was one of the best albums of the 90's, and Lateralus comes so close, it may just be as good.
1. The Grudge - 10/10 - Quite possibly the best Tool song. The song, at 8:36, will never give you a moment to rest.
2. Eon Blue Apocalypse - 7/10 - Instrumental track. Should just be part of The Patient
3. The Patient - 7/10 - I am not too addicted to this song, but its alright.
4. Mantra - 8/10 - Strange sounds that go perfectly with Schism.
5. Schism - 9/10 - The first single, and a very impressive track.
6. Parabol - 9/10 - Quiet, eerily calm song that has the excellent lead-in to Parabola.
7. Parabola - 10/10 - Another one of Tool's best songs
8. Ticks And Leeches - 10/10 - Tool's hardest song, other than HWAP off Aenima. Very nice middle instrumental part, and a nice ending.
9. Lateralus - 10/10 - Probably Tool's best-written song.
10. Disposition - 7/10 - Repetetive (13 words to the entire song).
11. Reflection - 8/10 - Long, strange song that's not really in the "Tool" style. (Wait a minute, every song IS different with Tool, that's what's so good about them)
12. Triad - 7/10 - 8-minute instrumental track. Sounds cool.
13. Faiip De Oiad - 9/10 - Extremely creepy recording played over a drum solo.
A great album.

I'm not even a huge fan of the genre.I'm into The Tragically Hip,U2and Radiohead.I gotta say that this album along with the outstanding masterpiece Aenima which I give five stars makes me want to just crank up the volume and enjoy.Oh and(moshermaniac)someone that claims themselves to be open mined,usually isn't.

This cd is simply amazing. You have to listen to it many times to really appreciate it but once you do you will love it. After a few listens you really hear and get into what the guys are playing, especially when there are no lyrics for 3 or 4 minutes. The blend of great lyrics(with Maynard's awesome voice) and incredible manipulation of instruments melds this cd into a classic. No CD has really done this well since a Pink Floyd album. The length of the songs is great too. The songs longer than 8 minutes (the grudge, ticks & leaches, lateralus, reflection, and triad) are some of the best on the cd. They really build up and flow nicely. This is the kind of CD musicians dream of making; where it is more of an album than a cd containing 3 or 4 singles. You will want to listen to this cd all the way through, or atleast almost, every time. Of course I also need to mention Danny Carey's drumming as it is absolutely fantastic. He is one of the greatest drummers of all time. Altogether this is Tool's best album so far, and makes them even more of a force in rock music.
