    After 13 years, TOOL finally came out with a new album today - Fear Inoculum. I’ve listened to it once. It’s definitely very TOOL sounding. 7 epic, long songs and a few instrumental/experimental type transition “songs”. I like all of the 7 “real” songs. Pneuma and 7empest stood out to me. They are just powerful. I’m pleased. It’s a different type of album where there aren’t any <5 minute, easily-digested, tracks but the brilliance of TOOL is there. I’m looking forward to many, many more listens.

    I’m gonna blow a lot of money on this tour. 2 NJ dates and Brooklyn. Probably going to at least two shows including a VIP ticket/ experience if they have one. I’m psyched! We’ve waited a LOOONG time for this day, man!

    13 years is a long time to wait but it’s a freaking masterpiece! It’s sold out everywhere.

    Back to topic. I don't mind Tool. Never been a loyal fan of them but I do enjoy quite a bit of their music. I will check out the new album.

    IDK, it's decent for background music at a party or something, but not something that draws me in.

    When you were listening to that, didn't you expect to hear, "I know the pieces fit....I know the pieces fit."?

    I was fortunate enough to get tickets to the Newark (VIP) and AC shows. I’m psyched! They’re always great live. Anyone going to see them on this tour?

    Enjoy man! I’m sure it’ll be an amazing show. Just DO NOT pull out your phone to take a pic or vid. They’re super strict about no pics/vids and I’ve seen people get kicked out during the first song because they were taking pics.

    Invincible, 7empest, and Pneuma are my 3 favorites but I do also like the 3 other "real songs" (Descending, Fear Inoculum, Culling Voices). Also, as I'd figured/hoped, I'm enjoying the album more with each listen. 13 freakin', long years! I'm so glad this finally came out and that I'll get to see them twice! If you haven't seen them, it's worth overpaying a bit for aftermarket tickets (a lot of places sold out quickly) if you can.
