strictly speaking, the album is not delayed. they announced it to come out on august 30th. it would be a delay if it didnt come out that day.
Depends on how much stock you give to Danny and Maynard's comments regarding the release window. It's hard to argue there was more than one official release date, but I know for a fact there are quite a few close to the band who expected it to be released before then.

Word my dude I am right there with you I absolutely love these two songs I would drop 5 bucks on each song if they released em early on ITunes and Amazon. Obviously they won’t charge anything more than the standard price but fuck I would if I could get em early and it was an option.

As for quality dunno best I have found in terms of Descending on YouTube is probably from Anypath. Invincible a bunch around the same quality but I tend to just listen to the ToolArchive uploads because TA is good people and has done a great service to the community.
Hey, there are some KILLER versions of the two new songs on recordings up on the Tool Drive. :) Just saying!

I'm sure there are, but I want to hear the fullness of the actual recording

You must have missed the part where we talked about the album packaging probably causing the delay. Sounds like they expected to release before then but whatever goofy shit Adam is set on doing for unnecessary plastic is so elaborate it is likely going to take months to produce in enough quantities. As usual this shit is on Adam. If Captain Bizarro wasn’t trying to include a fucking rocket ship with the album art we would have likely got a June or July release.

Adam if by some happenstance you ever wander across this post you are a FUCKING DIPSHIT for delaying the release because of fucking artwork. Fuck album packaging in a digital age and fuck batteries. That’s right. FUCK Batteries.

What batteries are you talking about, Mog? Did I miss something about the new album packaging design? Is it legit? Are they gonna make something like a Pink Floyd's "Pulse"? Batteries... WTF

But it could be plastic AND cardboard. The high quality kind. Oooooooh and plexiglass! It's probably like a pop-up book with shitty carnival music. Or the call of a wookie.

Pathetic. Chewy needs to realize this isn't SW, we just need music. If he wants to release a limited edition package later on, fine. But I've got money right here to give to them and who knows what I could spend it on from now til Aug 30th.

I'm done, further rants are for the grudge.

baha. it could be batteries. O o

after setting up a european tour you think they would of made sure this was out by mid June at the latest. it comes across as unorganized and unprofessional in ways. i think most seeing them now figured it would be new material mostly. i feel bad for people that bought tickets expecting to hear mostly new stuff and didnt. 23 min of new tool is a blessing but still.

I'm not really that bothered about the wait at the minute. I thought I didn't care about the packaging then remembered how I used to enjoy looking at the new radiohead album artwork back around the time of Amnesiacs and Kid A, and wondered if whatever Tool have to offer might be just as intriguing.

I've stopped listening to the new songs cos I don't want to wear them out already but I definitely feel more chilled about waiting for the whole album now that I've actually heard new stuff.

Plus I'll get to see them live for the first time in about a month so that helps.

Same here Tool_User, i stopped listening to the news songs last week.
Btw i bought that red book edition Amnesiac on release day, i do love good packaging and cover and Lateralus is one of my favs along with most of the NiN stuff.

the packaging is crucial in my opinion. in this digital world its so easy to burn a cd from a friend, download a ripped version, send a file shared version of the album, etc etc.

special packaging does not insure, but makes it way more likely for you, me, average joe to go out and buy a physical copy and for the band to get their due (earned) money for their art and to keep that average joe from stealing from them. yes, stealing.

the band is going above and beyond with their packaging, while satisfying their fans and receiving more money for themselves.

it is a win, win for everyone involved.

We've been craving new tool for a loooooong time and just when we think the end is fucking nigh there's a "delay" likely caused by packaging. So fuck packaging, as Moggles said.

Have fun at your first Tool show. Seeing them in person fucks the shit out of seeing them on YouTube. Let us know how your experience was in the live forums.

Win win for who exactly? The minority of you people that still like plastic things that take up space? Nobody (in general terms the vast fucking majority) is going to steal the fucking album Tool fans have been waiting for 13 years everyone is going to buy the fucking album digitally your opinion holds absolutely no weight at all. And many of those people who will buy digitally will also buy a physical copy so they can see what goofy rocket ship quantum physics type shit Adam has wasted so much time on. I personally couldn't give a flying fuck about plastic or packaging but I will buy a copy for my father since I got him into Tool many years ago and he still likes goofy plastic discs. Fuck I will probably even buy a physical copy just because I am enjoying these new tunes so much and since Tool were not complete fucking cunts and left the youtube vids alone I will toss them a few extra bucks.

But please do not pull the steal album bullshit again. It is a digital world and it is fucking Tool and it has been fucking ages since 10,000 Days nobody is going to steal the fucking album. Christ the fucking thing will be on Apple Music I imagine and Spotify which people have subscriptions for.

Moreover while you are on the talking out of your ass train when we analyze COST, let us take a moment and think about what this packaging is likely costing Tool and the label and what the ceiling is in terms of what they can get away with charging for an actual CD. Got news for you I imagine they won't be making a huge margin on that fancy packaging.

If you like packaging with batteries and rocket ships good on you but please don't justify stupidity with stupidity.

Fuck that I am listening to this shit every day. Take no chances in life. Car crashes heart attacks strokes earthquakes tornadoes poorly written game of thrones seasons anything can happen. I work off the principle that every day I wake up I got lucky and tomorrow is not guaranteed. I make no assumptions that I will be alive come August 30th. Life is chaos no one is watching out for you or watching over you there is no plan or no order and no reason it is all random. Grab onto whatever you can while you can and don't look back. Cherish these tunes.

As for seeing them for the first time that is crazy man I am old. I am super happy for you I hope it is everything you could have imagined and more and that it brings you immense happiness. Enjoy every minute of it.
