@children Yea, there is a ton of decay on it and the ringing sounds dissonant. Definitely the snare. He's never had that sound before. Maybe they just mix out the decay normally and this is more natural. The actual crack and head sound great and pitched to the song, its just the resonance.
fwiw I hear this too. As a drummer it bothers me less because this is just what I hear most times I play on a kit, properly tuned or otherwise. I think you're right about them usually mixing out the decay or something along those lines.

Fuck Tool for making me increase my budget for household cleaning supplies this month. Fucking pricks.
You be jazzing all over the place you mean or they just inspired you to do a spring clean?

The more I think about how shafted we got down here the more pissed I get. I'm a physical release kinda fulla and still love the idea of owning a physical copy and checking out the artwork.

I've avoided the unboxing videos and now images of it are starting to filter into my news feeds. No surprise but a fucking comment on this debacle would be great. We pre fucking ordered these things the day of and now 3 days since release haven't heard shit. Is fucked

I'm also getting pissed about other members here chasing other variants with posts like "I got four copies of the first two but struggling to find my second copy of the third variant, has anyone had any luck?"

Yeah, it's kinda shitty chasing a complete set when many outside the US at least are struggling just to get one.

It's shitty that the band/label released variants after barely producing copies for the native region, let alone the world. The "fans" scalping them are the fans that should be blamed. Can't blame people for trying to collect something "comic book" Adam obviously intended them to.

I don't blame them for collecting such a things, just seems polite to keep it quiet where there are people obviously in need.

Yes. Generally I'm not in favour of censorship but if you could just delete such posts in future? Thanks in advance.

I’m not saying I wouldn’t be livid as well at the ineptitude of Volcano/Tool/Whoever made the decisions on world wide physical release strategy (they screwed the pooch on an epic scale). I am sincerely bummed you guys got shafted.

That out of tune snare in Invincible, ARRRRRGGHHHH. The overtones are so nasty and really prevalent in the mix. That is probably my biggest gripe of few.
The snaredrum sounds absolutly fantastic! It's a pleasure to my ears to hear ringing, hear the snare wires vibrate etc. instead of getting this standard DEAD sound like on every other rock album.

Just a feeling, but I think there's going to be a second (or continued) run of the physical CD package.

All the folks collecting multiple copies are going to end up with just that, multiple copies.

And I don't think anyone should be paying anything more than list price for these things at the moment. Patience is definitely key here.

Truly sucks that world wide distribution fell short on release date, but hang in there guys & gals.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

Yeah but that's just it. Like I said in my rant, not even a comment. There's probably die hard fans that will now go and buy a copy at a massively inflated price. If Tool then announce a 2nd run they've been extra shafted. How hard is it to comment and say we are sorry for the let down to our fans. We are working on a resolution asap, please hang in there. Just fucking communicate for once in your fucking lives cunts

Damn, didn’t know all this was going on while i was scrambling to get a single copy.

If the record company is to blame for the shortage then Tool is to blame for the lack of communication, i’m sure that they know what’s going on, a single Tweet could have cleared everything up.

Adam posted a story on Instagram of him getting on a plane and going someplace and sign lots of GuitarWolrd magazines, it seems he does have the time to do that and cash in.

While I'm not surprised there are no regular ticket presales, it is disappointing. They can't be bothered to add tour dates or fix their discography on their website but when it comes to milking their fans out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, watch how fast they scramble. ToolArmy is a complete joke of a fan club and I feel sorry for people who paid $50 to join in the past week. The press release was vague and misleading.

The band need to address their fuck ups and try to somehow right the ship. I can already hear some fans saying their lack of care of the fanbase turns them off to the new music. I’m not at that point but I understand if some feel this way.

Things like this definitely bum me out. I try not to let it affect my appreciation for the music and the experience of seeing them live, but it's often in the back of my mind, especially because TA used to be pretty cool.

Isn’t awesome to see all of those prime seats on sale on stubhub! The music business is so broken. Looking forward to fighting with bots to get tix on Friday.

Also, would it have killed them to turn Justin up in the mix on the album. Jesus Christ, he disappears behind Adam, and Danny’s snare throughout.
