Shit hits the fan!

Ok, I’m back!  Thanks to Foamy for holding the fort while I was away for a couple of days.  As I expected shit hit the fan and Vicarious was leaked.  I’m currently giving it a listen right now, and it sounds pretty to me, though it’s probably not going to be my favorite Tool song.

If you haven’t heard it yet, never fear, there’s plenty of places to get ahold of it……

sounds like poor mans tool, like an APC song…
little depth, simple breakdowns that could be anybody (not above most as per tool norm) and tra la la…! he never had a problem writing lyrics before!
however danny is keeping it together!
sorry i hate bitchn, but 5 years to be gutted?
just hope its the weakest song on the album…

Cut and paste from toolarmy….

A little late but a offical taste

“A short intro featuring a clip from the new TOOL song “Vicarious” is now online at either http://www.toolarmy.com or http://www.toolband.com (both are the same). ”

And more signed stuff which i missed due to the site crashing

next time maybe

…same day so that the whole album doesnt get judged just by one song. i like the track overall but i do feel disapointed. i have faith that the rest of the album will deliver in spades. maynards lyrics and vocals better smarten up too otherwise i will probably drown myself. not.

For your enjoyment or displeasure… HAHA. (as close as you can get it without getting it from the source) Eye on the TV ’cause tragedy thrills me Whatever flavour it happens to be Like another husband drowned by the ocean Shunned by his own son he used to poison In his dream (?), he kissed him goodbye That’s my kind of story It’s no fun until someone dies Don’t look at me like I am a monster Frown out your one face, but with the other, Stare like a junkie into the TV Stare like a zombie while the mother… Read more »

Hey, you guys should update your news. Tool has a new gateway page on their site playing a sample of Vicarious and centering on the theme of 10,000 Days. It’s pretty fucking cool.

“sounds like poor mans tool, like an APC song… little depth, simple breakdowns that could be anybody (not above most as per tool norm) and tra la la…! he never had a problem writing lyrics before!” I’m thinking it is relatively like “Weak and the Powerless” was to the last APC album. It is the radio song, the single, and the most commercial. But I still think it is great, and I don’t really think other nu-metal really compares to it both in terms of the subject matter of the lyrics nor the layers. If you really take a listen… Read more »

I don’t consider tool “nu-metal,” so that’s kind of a moot point you’re making, but hopefully the entire album leaks soon and puts to rest some of the concerns I have with the new direction.

Yeah, you are right, by quoting what you said, I kind of threw you in with the same category of people that are saying that now Tool are just using some repetitive nu-metal riffs. I was actually trying to make two separate points, so I should have just split it up to make it more clear. Sorry about that.

tool are not a fuckin nu metal band. There a combination of art rock, prog rock, psychedelic rock and metal. And vicarious kicks ass.

the lyrics are good in fact i consider them better than songs like the patient and ticks and leeches.To the fag about that was bitchin about the la la lyrics quit ya fuckin whinning. IN songs like Eulogy and stinkfist there r parts just like that. IN fact in stinkfist maynard say suck my dick in portugeuse.

i certainly do NOT hope the entire album leaks. i listened to the single and didnt feel too bad about it but i really want people to get out there and buy it on may 2nd, and if it’s all over the web so many people won’t.

Definition: An APC cover song. Tool makes an appearance just after the 6 minute mark.

Great track. those who rag on it need to let it sink and try to follow all the polyrythms and time changes. A very mature and progressive tool has been unveiled. Cant wait for Coachella and May 2nd.

well i was very lucky to be at the melbourne listening party and i kinda find it very unfair that a few people seem to be already critising one song that they’ve heard, and have it in their heads that the rest of the album is shit. Well as much as i try not to be bias I really do think Tool have once again evolved from Lateralus, as they have done with all their previous albums. Lyrically i think maynards more angrier and slightly more obvious in what he has to say like how it was done in Undertow.… Read more »

Huge-EPic- song. Not my favorite Tool tune to date, but then again, I hated Lateralus for the first month it was out. One day, it just hit me,”THIS ALBUM IS F*CKING GENIUS!!!.”

I have spun Vicarious non stop for two days and I am still trying to take it all in. My ONLY complaint thus far; I am not sure about Maynards vocals. SOunds like he’s half assing it. But who knows, it might hit me like a ton of bricks when I buy the album. Peace.

you lot dont know what youre talking about. the dont know what youre talking about. no ones ‘half-assing’ anything. the way he is singing is appropriate for the topic. the topic is very relevant to the times. listen to it a couple of times – REALLY listen to it. dont do anything else, just shut your eyes and play it loud. it will give you goose bumps. its broken into three parts – discern them and you have successfully ‘heard’ the song. and what about the crazy scales and shit at the end!? its incredible!

I knew i shouldnt have bothered to read any “comments” and i knew it would spoil my pleasure and yet i read it, damn it! How come you people talk so much bullshit, im sorry, but i have to put it that way. You find the song “simple” or not “progressive” enough or what? And even if we all waited for 5 years we are not supposed to be “pleased” like some customers, wtf are you talking about? They took their time and did what they had to. Vicarious is musically as impressive as anything from Lateralus. “Theres not much… Read more »
