Product Description

Product Description

Arguably their finest album, this follow-up to Opiate showcases Tool at their best, assisted by clean, crisp production, without the muddiness of Aenima. Edgy guitar riffs are complemented by spitting, heavy bass, especially on "Sober" and "Crawl Away". Lyrically, Tool are at their vitriolic best, targeting religious hypocrisy ("Intolerance," "Sober"; always a popular theme), the loss of innocence and its consequences ("Prison Sex"), and deliberate ignorance ("Swamp Song"). Henry Rollins makes a guest appearance on "Bottom," which, along with "4 Degrees," deals with questions of identity. Undertow is also Tool's most musically adventurous album, lacking the occasionally numbing sameness of Aenima, and with considerably more sophistication than their previous work.

I bought the vinyl version and it plays perfectly with no skips. Sounds great! This is a double vinyl album and its too bad they jammed both records into a regular album sleeve; it fits really tight.

The album is awesome, and the records were very heavy/sturdy. I just wish there was more to it then just the two records. There's no insert or poster or anything, just two records in two sleeves. Still worth getting in my opinion!

One of the best sounding vinyl I have in my collection. Absolutely love this album... A must have for a Tool fan. It doesn't come with any lyric sheets or artwork, just a cover with 2 white sleeves and 2 records. Although there's no naked fat chick artwork inside, its still 5 stars for me.

Great album if ya like tool. Was delivered on time. Nothing special about it, just the record and sleeve, no lyrics sheet or any extras. The sleeve is a little tight but with patience it's no problem. All in all it's a good album and worth the price, especially if you're an avid tool fan

Lets work with what we have. The most obvious truth and fact is that Tool is a very well composed band who is goes above the status of music. We expect to be entertained by a cd even maybe relate to it in some sort of way but tool actually moves you. It gets to you and you some how are emotionally involved in this state of art. It may take someone a day to let the message of the music sink in; to others it might take a week however long it takes you, it's worth it! Undertow was and still is an awesome cd that I believe everyone show purchase. Any being can learn a thing or two from pain and failures. UNDERTOW is a great cd I advise everyone to buy it. Although, tool is not for everyone.

This album is pinacle of progressive metal in the states. it's got a vibe to it that continues throughout the entire album. Although, that exact characteristic can make it seem repetative; but don't get me wrong. This album is anything but boring. The bass in my opinion is beyond any bass I've ever heard. It's extremely heavy and intense. I think if you like that trait alone you should pick up this album. Although, the good aspects of this album are endless.
For one, the lyrics. Although weak at parts they are angry and pure, so if you don't like that this album may not be for you. Songs like the swamp song and intolerance truly extend the full meaning of my point. With the lyrics, comes an odd spin of a industrial rock style to the singing that i think maynard james keenan makes the best of. It's kind of like that guy from third eye and trent reznor mixed together (i know, makes no sense). Although, hes got a voice inseparable to his style and i believe that the important part. However, if the voice doesn't do it for you this album won't, so if you haven't already check the samples above.
The drums are a grand display as well. Although not demonstrated to their fullest i think the overall feel of it was amazing. If, you'd like faster drums and love tool than get lateralus instead, but if well measured and steady drums are you're style then this is right up your alley. In addition, the drums and the bass match beautifully and i think any hard rock fan would agree after hearing this.
Finally, the guitars and the overall sound of the album. The sound and the guitars connect alot and thats why i mention this. The guitar have a creepy quiet ring to it until the chorus usually comes out. Then, the progressive metal begins. Ingenious in all it's simplicity. I loved it in other words.

Most people whine that Tool songs are too long, or too deep. Well, what about Undertow, most people know Lateralus and Aenema (my favourite), but what about Undertow. 4+ minute songs with the odd 6 to 7 minute. But best of all, it manages to create the dark, rampaging emotions the band are famous for.
As far as musicicianship is concerned Tool are not lacking Lateralus or Aenima, but the guitars sound very different on Undertow, they are more 'grungy' if you understand what I'm saying, not smooth but very gritty. The vocals are as good as ever from MJK, but slightly different, he sings les mellow and with more frustration than Lateralus, he seems to sound deeper and more grainy which makes Undertow unique.
Intolerance 8/10 - Good song, solid, maybe not a great opener but still good.
Prison Sex 9/10 - Dark, haunting lyrics which I think are about child abuse. Scary stuff!
Sober 10/10 - Ah, what perfection! Possibly Tool's finest 5 minutes. Amazing vocals by the master MJK, some nice anti reliogious lyrics aswell!
Bottom 10/10 - I think this song is underrated, maybe the first few minutes are weak but after Henry Rollins' talking the song explodes into a whirlwind of shouting and guitars. Best bit when Maynard is screaming 'dead inside' after the short interlude, great song.
Crawl Away 8/10 - Good song but becomes very repetitive, the guitar riff is dragged on.
Swamp Song 8/10 - Same as Crawl Away, weakest part of the album.
Undertow 10/10 - Great care-free, pumping rock song! 'Shut up!'
4 degrees 10/10 - Wacky intro, one of the best guitar riffs on the album. Great vocals and a powerful chorus make this song one of the highlites in Undertow.
Flood 8/10 - Long, 'grungy' intro. Sets the scene well for a dark rock song.
