10,000 Days received

I finally recieved my 10,000 Days CD in the post last night, and let me assure you all who haven’t yet invested, the packaging is awesome, and is well worth adding to your collection.  The CD is now available to purchase in most parts of the world, so if you’ve downloaded already, then now is the time to come good with the cash.  The drugs and hookers Tool take on tour with them don’t come free…..

I’m still posting 10,000 Days reviews, so those of you who were holding out and have only just heard it, make sure you send me your review – Good, Bad or Ugly.

Bought mine today in a secluded music shop in Oporto… even got a chance to buy the limited edition Lateralus Vinyl \m/
Both albums are monsters!

HOLY ENLIGHTENMENT BATMAN! First time hearing the album today and I have absolutely NO CLUE as to where these tone deaf naysayers who heard the album already were coming from. Wonderful piece of music.

I have heard this album like 2 weeks now, bought my copy on Saturday too. It is a good album, but to be honest I was hoping for something brilliant after 5 years. It’s good, but not great..too much filler and it’s not at all that coherent. Like with lateralus I am a tad disappointed, because I don’t feel like hearing it again. It’s not one of those albums that make you want to listen repeatedly. The only albums where I went WOAH! and totally overwhelmed me was when I first heard Aenima and COG’s The New Normal.

The album is fuckin amazing. Tool really went back to their roots with this one, and even has a pink floyd/ zepplin tint to it as well. After finding out most of the song’s meanings the album becomes more personal. Wikipedia has some clues about what the album relates to for all you intrigued listeners….

i give up. this new album is an atrocity. i’ve put the cd with the 1000 eyes on it (gee they really gotta get over this eye fixation thingy) back into its fancy casing. and i’ve put it away for good. no more shall it torment my ears and heart. no more!

does political tool blow or what folks?

shit. and to think i wasted 25 dollars on this junk!?!?!??!!?!?!??!?!?!?! what madness! what tomfoolery! bah! borat youre an ass. how long did it take you to be disgusted by the album? after sleepless nights listening to it? shit. first time i heard vicarious i knew… i fucking K.N.E.W the album would B.L.O.W.

its reeked with green dayesque political bullshit.

i might very well sell this album. highly unlikely that anyone would buy it… for starters its too light to be a doorstopper… its too hard and ridget to wipe ones ass with.

perhaps i could frisbee the cd?

i would appreciate any suggestions you have.

what about “the pot”.

“foot in mouth and head up ass”. gee maynard are you fucking creative creative??… reminds me of a painting.

Relax!

Just got the CD, Downloaded before it came out. I really think that it is a good CD. There is a lot of quality music on it that I find to be a lot better than the pop. crap that is out there today. Arrangements are fantastic. Go to Sleep.

*chuckle.

“pop crap”.

*chuckles even more

i guess cause its different its HAS to be better yeah?

gee that’s good thinking.

its just DIFFERENT. not necessarily “better”

and its not “QUALITY” music. its once again just “DIFFERENT” music

these clowns cant write a good pop song if their lives depended upon it. artists produce works accordingly to their dispositions.

hey hellboy why you dont post my vicarious review? as if i’m not crusty enough… i’m getting preeeeeety annoyed with this pseudo intellectual halo these tool fans seem to have around their heads. its so pitiful. does listening to tool make them automatically belong into the elite intellectual class? gee good one.

you lot are funny. you assume i’m from england cause i use the word “git”.

and no i’m a third level IT helpdesk engineer, so i guess i get paid more for an hours work than you two trendy little punks get in a day. one more thing … i didnt download the album. i just downloaded the one song vicarious.

Jerod Rockwell

I really think that a lot of people kind of fucked themselves by downloading the album first. When listening to it now,in full, it makes so much more sense. I really enjoy it, can’t wait to see them in Boston.

are you going to be my councilor now? i hope so cause i feel as though i could explode any minute!

its partly cause the new album is shockingly B.A.D. my hopes were shattered when i first heard it.

when i listen to 10000 days… all i hear is “lipin conjuring”… that god awful wailing / moaning chant.. hahaha

a pitiful image believe me. and i figure i need to release these frustrations on this website.

so doctor rockwell please cure me of this disease.

sorry hellboy you grisly thing. i’ve been pulling your tail on that one… i havent even written it yet !!! :p sorry. i’ll do so when i have time. DONT MAKE ONE UP!

you know that kind of feeling? you open up notepad or winword or openoffice.org writer and the blank screen just stares you in the face… you have this notion that you can write a fucking thesis… but when putting it down word for word you kinda feel queezy.

anyway… i get it to you soon i promise.

jonas, before u said the album has it’s “brilliance” (when talking about the first songs) and now u claim it is shit. Seems to me u r filled with contradictions. PS i was dissapointed when i heard it. But in no means would i call it a bad album. It just dosen’t compare to AEnima and Lateralus.

jonas is a tool
Guest

jonas, think of something intelligent to say next post. By all means you have a right to your opinion of why you think it is shit. Please elaborate on why you think it sucks, i personally don’t think any of the songs are about politics. It seems to me the majority of the album is for his mother.

You don’t think any of the songs are about politics? I guess being on the defensive makes you say shit like that. You lose your perspective and blurt out nonsense. I don’t even think I’ll even be buying the album for the artwork, seems alittle gimmicky. 3D glasses? Meh.

haha. ill wite a review the minute i get home. right now the company’s network is experiencing a bottleneck. idiots want me to fix it. i’m like a fucking tool they take out and put back in the box when they don’t need anymore… anyway…

i guess youre right “foot in mouth and head up ass” refers to his mother… if you look at it from a different angle. 🙂

yeah i agree. even the album art is a rehashing of old alex “gawky” grey’s work. i see kids walking in the mall with the album stuck in their faces… they look awful stupid peering through those magnifying lenses. hahaha. basically heres the cream of what i’ll put into my review for vicarious. *shallow one dimensional lyrics *poor quality of production / mixing *uninspired / recycled guitar work *inneffective changes / shifts in musical direction *uninspired singing *unclean / incoherent / messy sound. but of course i’ll be more elaborate and eloquent than this. i want my arguements to be… Read more »

depends on what kinda of music you listen to. no point in giving you classical listings if you dig death metal.

i listen to different types of music. my tastes are out the equation, i just want to know what YOU think is good. pick a few things from different genres(preferable!) fuck i dont care. i just want to know what the fuck you listen to which is so much better than 10kdays.

Hello from germany,

i got the CD at 28.5. and let me tell you one thing:It’s incredible.wunderful.what fucking ever.
It´s not better as Lateralus, because Lateralus is ‘the darkside of the moon’ from TOOL.
Do you remember these fuckin’ guys from england?
10000 days is Tool’s ‘wish you were here’
This is my opinion.
BTW: Wings I & II is the best piece of music i’ve ever heard!
Hey PINK FLOYD!!
look at these guys! They have what you have lost!

Ive come to realize most IT helpdesk employees have ADD. Jonas is no exception. grimy c hole, thx for the laugh. As for 10k days, it is an excellent piece of work which says F(ck off to all the other bands that try to imitate TOOL. Good luck trying on this one. If you were a fan of old work, which i would think 100% of us in here are its impossible not to like this new stuff, although i do agree, i was expecting “more” music. 77 mins, and probably only 60 mins worth of songs, they should have… Read more »

I dont like this CD, anyone wanna buy it from me? $9.98 US

I think I may have outgrown Tool, or maybe just getting too old.

I enjoy the album, but I take the lyrics as stabs against the more ape-like tool fans and designer occultniks. I’m not saying that’s the message or close to the message that Tool are trying to communicate, but listening to the album this way makes me laugh to the point of breathlessness. A song like Rosetta Stoned, to me, is saying, “So what if you found the meaning of life after taking X many hits of acid! You can’t fucking remember it so quit trying to hold onto it. Let it go and stop annoying the rest of us with… Read more »

I find myself wondering why i’m reading other peoples comments on 10k days… As with all experiences of any art form, appreciation (or otherwise – jonas) is entirely subjective and arguing like kids over the quality of an album is not going to have any impact on someones views on it… No, in fact, f@ck it… i did really like the album but jonas has convinced me that it sucks… thats the effect the superior intellectual power of an I.T. guy can have on you I guess [leaves forum with a sense of awe for jonas]

Why does Jonas Lindgren insist on spending countless hours bashing TOOL? I mean, he writes these long reviews in Amazon, which he posts more than once, and sits in here and goes on and on about how much he hates TOOL fans and TOOL itself. Ok, we get it, you don’t like them, I don’t care, we don’t care, go away and find something better to do, christ.
