My Tool Top 10

Post by hellboy » Wed Aug 28, 2013 5:17 am

I'm starting a new series of articles on Fourtheye today, mainly due to a general shortage of news. The goods is that there's a competition. Details below!
Things are quiet up in the Loft, perhaps a little too quiet. While we all await some news regarding a new album, I thought I’d take some time to indulge myself and publish my personal Tool top 10. You may agree, you may disagree, that is both expected and welcomed. Feel free to discuss my selections are reasoning, as well as add your own.

If anyone feels like having a bit of fun, then feel free to predict my top 10 in the comments below. Should anyone nail it, I’ll send them a little something from my collection. Just to help you out a little, here’s the first one (as well as a significant hint as to what else I may or may not pick later). Entries close at the same time I post #9, which will be on Friday afternoon Aussie time.

When I first started to create my top 10 Tool tracks, the first thing I did what look at the track listing for each album, and then wrote down my “essential” tracks from each album. This got me to 15 tracks, several of them from Undertow. However while whittling down to create a top 10, I ended up disregarding everything else from the album except for Flood.

Flood to me is an interesting track, more than anything else on Undertow is shows to me at least, the direction Tool will take on it’s next three albums. The track is half instrumental, and to my ears just a little more progressive than the hard rock styles of the rest of the album.

The track also highlights Paul’s work on the bass. The bass sound on Undertow is still one of my favorites, and this track accentuates it beautifully.

Does it have to be in any sort of order?

Just gave it a shot. Shit, I sweated getting down to my top 20 tracks. Very heavily Aenima and Lateralus weighted, which comes as a surprise to likely nobody.

Getting those down to 10 is not something I look forward to, so I'll pass for now.

Yes, order has to match mine, however since it's unlikely anyone will get the right order, I may award a prize to someone who gets all 10 right.

All Tool releases are included, however selecting something from Salival is likely to end is disappointment.

Wait, is this your "favourite" top ten, or what you consider to be the "essential" representation of TOOL? While the two may very well overlap, the distinction is incredibly important.

If this is a dumb question, feel free to call me out. All good.
O love will you read the letters I will send to you.

I'd put "Wings 2" in there if it were an "essential" list.

No one has posted the correct list yet, though some are close. Got a little over 24 hours to get you lists in.
