Mini-Reviews

I’m going to start a new page here for so 10,000 Days Mini-Reviews. You should see it on the right menu. Anyone who has anything to say about the CD (good or bad), send me an email and I’ll add the review.

I reserve the right to edit any of the reviews though, and if you send me anything that I consider unreadable (ie. bad spelling grammer, etc) I won’t post it. hellboy1975@gmail.com

I don’t know if this is good news or bad news. It’s definately creating the urge to stare at the sun. You want to hear it, but you know its not time for us to hear it yet… but it’s been five years… is less than a month early really that bad? I’m undecided if I’m going to pursue this or not… Leaning towards not.

I’m with Johnny on this one. Very tempting but running up to Best Buy on May 2nd just won’t be as fun if I’ve already heard the album (in a lower quality sound format at that). To each their own.

Certaintly won’t be going anywhere near it. It wouldn’t be the same without the entire package in my hand. Hearing vicarious was enough once on the radio

I am unhappy with the amount of content on the album. 4 of the tracks are nothing. (Lupin Conjuring, Lost Keys, Intension, Viginti Tres) Leaving only 7 “real” songs. I would think that 5 years of wait could yield some more material. However, what is present is very good, but I would still say it doesn’t meet the mark of Lateralus or Aenima. But we’ll see how this opinion changes after time. I think MJK could of been a little more subtle on the song “Rosetta Stoned”, (“…goddamn, shit the bed, typical…”) that song is just downright strange and it… Read more »

i’ve been a tool fan from the begining. when their music was so different than all others. when even mtv played there video( probably not sure what to think) and gained more fans. tool is the one band you can RESPECT. they work hard to produce a type of music that is different and touches people. their meesgaes aren’t right in your face, they come from behind and whisper in the wind and let you find it, then put in your own terms. i’m not going “all holy” right now, but i know that everyone only wants this music because… Read more »

BTW, the internet album isn’t shitty MP3’s. They are high quality .m4a files at 320 kbps.

You would have to be one hell of an audiophile with 3,000 dollar headphones and a anechoic chamber to notice any difference of quality between an HDCD (such as Lateralus) and a .m4a 320 kbps sound file.

i’m curious to know how it leaked…
did they send out the album to radio stations already? or could they have leaked it themselves, to promote sales?

tjtull

The way these are typically leaked is, a promo copy goes to radio stations in advance. All it really takes is ONE person at ONE station to rip a copy and put it up on a site. It then spreads like crazy.

I’m worried, some of the lyrics are getting awfully close to Christian rock!!!

Maybe the official vers. will be more enlightening with printed lyrics and whatnot.

BTW, I thought the vocals were too buried to be audible a lot of the time. Can this be a final mix?

Heya.

I first went to Amazon and ordered it (with a DVD that they drop in as a discount, hell, i am a consumer!). Buy stuff from bands you love! It is only because you bought their CDs that we got “10k Days” now.

Then got a torrent.

I went there too, couldn’t help it.I’m buying 3 copies the day it gets released, 1 for me, 1 for my brother and 1 for the jukebox at the bar I work at.Jambi:Whoah.The record’s a fucking masterpiece.

“the record’s a masterpiece” booo whooo. im sick of the word masterpiece. its the most overused word in the dictionary these days. i bet you poseurs also call deftones – white pony a masterpiece too. and tool’s opiate a masterpiece. nice. real nice genuises. based on what grounds are you concluding the album to be a masterpiece? long songs? cheesy repetitive uncoloured riffs? the “esoteric” (note the quotation marks) feel of it? the fancy cheesy Alex Grey artwork? the inherent eye fetish the band has? what exactly constitutes to a “masterpiece”. personally the album is a trombone. it blows basically.… Read more »

so before any tool posts it i’ll post it myself…
Opeth.. they suck!, they blow!, they Stink! or maybe if their brains are evolving… they suck, blow and stink!

why do you state the obvious? why does someone always have to proclaim my prophecies? youre just another effect in the chain of causes and effects.

can you try and insult someone WITHOUT using the f word? or using adjectives that attempt to colour my personality, my sexual leanings and my intellectual workings?

This HAS to be fake! It is just silly. The quality drops so much after the first track (which happens to be the single) that I just cannot believe it is real. I have to admit, though, it would be a pretty elaborate hoax…

The album just needs time to grow. I think it is a nice change, who honestly wanted a replica of a previous album? Those albums stand as they are and to try and achieve a sound similar to one of them is just bastardizing their meaning. And so what if the subject matter is more personal(?), it adds a powerful mood to the music – especially with Keenan’s vocals processed the way they are. The music in and of itself is more repetative, but it’s almost trance-inducing at times (Rosetta Stoned, 10,000 Days). The drum fills are also extremely prefected… Read more »

While I like the initial sound of the album, I think it’s their worst effort yet. Even Opiate made me rock harder, and I just can’t help but think that 3 good tracks are enough to make up for a 5 year wait.

I know TOOL is capable of much, much greater things but I think they got lazy on this one and went the “it’s experimental and different so we’re done recording now” route.

I’m sure it’ll grow on me…but I don’t forsee it overtaking any of the previous albums in my rotation.

Deftones “Around the Fur” and Tool “AEnema” are masterpieces.

“10k Days” has yet to prove itself once we all listen to it for few months.

I remember my first listening of Aenema, i didnt quite liked it. Month later i was playing it on repeat be it in home, in car or on Discman.
