Tool have just released their latest album, 10,000 Days. The track list is:

Wings For Marie (Pt 1)
10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2)
The Pot
Lipan Conjuring
Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann)
Rosetta Stoned
Right In Two
Viginti Tres

I bought my copy of the album today but only managed to listen to "Vicarious" which I thought was great music, in the same vein as stuff on Lateralus. I'll be reviewing the entire album soon.

Tool formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. Evolving significantly with each album, they are now one of the most sophisticated and respected alternative hard-rock bands around. Much of their music is progressive rock, and the band cite King Crimson among others as an influence on their style.

Tool's music is at once brainy and brawny, urban and tribal. Backed by the intricate but heavy drumming of Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones (once make-up effects artist) elaborates his riffs into cross-patterns and sonic landscapes. The music often involves complicated rhythms and time signature changes, which the band handle solidly. Over this, vocalist Maynard James Keenan whispers then screams his messages at you. Amongst the subjects he tackles are religion, politics and psychology. This is one band you won't hear playing any ballads.

Maynard also has a successful side project band called A Perfect Circle.

We all already know everything they say, but having such an artistic reminder is a nice change. Stop listening, stop feeling, start letting it sink in and live. That's all that needs to happen. Become part of the message, of the reminder.
