David Botrill comparing Aenima with Lateralus on which sounds better Around min 46

“On Aenema.. there are better songs!…”

If I’m not mistaken that’s his most relevant argument for the whole album sounding better than Lateralus… really ?! I would state that Useful Idiot would be his favourite tune!!! (sarcasm embedded remark) That’s why i like impartial, opinionated and professional people


Signed OG Tool fan 😉

I don’t ! Although maybe it would be enlightening to have a poll/rank for tool’s best sounding albums in general (recording mixing mastering etc) ? Or maybe best album by number of songs/favourite (1-5 level by song for instance) Or both ? Maybe I digress but since we listen to the albums more than the producers/engineers we should also a very good perception and saying on it!
