Just in case you haven’t heard….

The inevitable has happened and 10,000 Days has leaked. Before you all start flooding me with questions:

  • I won’t be posting a link on Fourtheye
  • Yes, it sure is real
  • If you do download it, make sure you purchase the CD.
  • Be aware that Fourtheye, TDN, Toolnavy, etc are all experiencing heavy traffic, so if you can, hold back for a while and try not to refresh too often.
  • Expect a mini-review later today

Enjoy!

i love 10,000 days(wings2), it builds up the atmosphere a whole time and has this timed breakout.
all in all i have to agree with des, its a sort of combination of all tool styles

Its our moral responsibility to support the artist we admire. I am sure that the TOOL members will be pissed at this happening, because they were pretty active in the anti-piracy thing. They will probably be even more pissed at their so-called fans who spent the time and effort just to rip them off. I hope this doesn’t convince them to rethink any more albums…

I think the album is exactly what i was waiting for and makes vicarious seem like a joke. The album is absolutely epic and Right in Two now has my vote for most amazing tool song ever…Period.

Live From The Front Line… “10,000 days in the fire is long enough, you’re going home…” Holy fuck. ‘Wings for Marie’ is blowing my mind. So the album just leaked about an hour ago. Earlier today at work I had read a post by someone claiming to be in Canada, who happened to work for a record store that just so happened to be getting two regional promotional copies of the album at some point later in the day. Everyone called bullshit. Then about 75 minutes ago, the ToolNavy boards started to go crazy. One post: “The album has leaked.”… Read more »

im so bummed that it leaked.

i guess as long as people are buying the cd there is no harm.. that’s the logic i used to make myself feel better about downloading vicarious… but man… i dont think i would even want to hear the album until may 2nd. ive been so excited this whole time… i had a countdown going lol… it was fun, the whole waiting and the excitement. i think i’ll just keep waiting.

You’re not alone. I’m pretty bummed as well. There really seems no point in waiting anymore.

Imagine how the band feels. ~:/

TOOL! They are back…

How the band feels?

Their fans are frothing and scrambling for their product, I would assume, if they aren’t money hungry bastards, feeling pretty good.

Either way, they should make the same or more album sales as before, and every concert they play will be sold out, what more can you ask?

I’ll buy 2 copies, what they do with the artwork is reason enough to have a copy.

What the fuck is wrong with you people? THIS IS THE ONLY ALBUM! THERE IS NO DECOY! Vicarious is a fucking song name. it has no hidden reference to the REAL album. Get over it, this is the new Tool. If you don’t like it, go away and never come back.

“But wait. So which is it? Crap? Genius?”

Not something you want to hear in a review. I’ve been with this band since Opiate, but I’ll need to sample some of the other songs before blowing $16.

this happens every time a new tool cd gets released, the fact that the reviewer asked this tells me all is right and im in for another classic, pre-ordering and downloading now!

Wow, goodness gracious, I was kinda bummed when i heard Vicarious the first 20 times, even posted some negative comments about it, but damn, that was just the beginning. I am so happy to report that the rest of the album slaughters Vicarious. V sounded like old tool to me, almost a track that didnt make it on Lateralus…. hold on fellas, this is gonna rock your world

lexiconoclast

interesting to me that you have no qualms about posting the artwork, clearly copyrighted material if there ever was any, and clearly legitimate if you have a single tool bone in your body you know it, but you try to paper it over with a thin veneer of integrity by censoring leak info for the music itself… just a personal inquiry i thought you might explore.

oh man it sure is real. I’m still in the download process and I’m feeling guilty, but I’m going to buy the album anyway. For you people trying to find it, it’s not hard. If you’re really having so much trouble, unscramble the word for a hint: rnoerto

anyone who says the new album isnt good needs to shut up. tool, unlike any other band, focuses on letting their music evolve. To me this is what makes TOOL true artists, they say “screw convention” and let their style grow and change and enter new sound scapes. true fans will go along for the ride and buy the new album. so everyone who isnt willing to accept the new album…. *** off

After listening through 4 times, I have decided it is a REALLY good album. Nothing really stands out but as a whole it rocks. The more I listen the better it gets, like every tool album.

Ok, so I’ve looked on Napster, Bittorrent, LimeWire and ITunes and I can’t find this album anywhere. Someone want to help a brother out?

You said it bobby. How dare people who don’t like it voice their opinion! I guess since you like it, EVERYONE must like it.

Jeff: great review – exactly how I feel after listening the first time through. I’m sure after a few more listens the songs I didn’t like too much on the first listen will grow on me. I’m sure it will land in the genius category for me. Definitely like the Pink Floyd influence.

leaked? why do these tools always give away their cds prerelease to dodgy radio stations? why not just say… we’ll be releasing the album on the 2nd may… and will be playing the whole fucking album that day. no samples no private interviews no nothing. seal the record in a vault and open it on the 2nd of may.

gee whiz. they were asking for it.
