I agree Kittaan. Some people on here sure have some whack opinions. But I guess they feel that way about people who actually enjoy every second of this new Tool record. For me there is an infinite amount of things that keep my interest. There isn't enough hours in the day to satisfy how much I want to try to absorb all the nuances of this doozy of a record. Every time I listen I enjoy it more than the last time. Little riffs and hooks that I didn't notice or did nothing for me the first several times are being brought to the forefront and revealing the layers. The fact that this record is already a fucking classic in my mind says a lot!

I just started playing Tempest on my home stereo and it started raining heavily outside... shitty, overcast day here.

I know it's just a coincidence but listening to Tempest in a storm is actually pretty cool :)

I’m starting to tune out about halfway through each song. They’re too long. Need more Maynard, tighter direction, less jammy. The songs are missing that climactic release of tension. They set a theme, tease, and then gradually unwind and meander which can be creative in one sense, boring in another.
Whoa, Takeo a step back there buddy... two words: Danny Carey. At no point could you possibly be able to tune out because the man is constantly performing circus tricks with his kit. I would SO love a DC only mix of the entire album.

But seriously, it’s your opinion and you’re entitled to it. I just can’t fathom it personally.

He has a perfectly valid point.

You want to listen to a technically proficient drummer? Go to a drum clinic. Personally I'd rather good songs that stick in your head for days on end..

Do you all think it will be released on iTunes(or any other online source) on midnight EST? So maybe I will be able to listen to it at 9pm AUG 29 PST? Still have yet to listen to it and want to listen with all the segues.

I just got a shipping confirmation from jpc.de - so the special edition is in Europe at least. I've half expected to have to wait until mid September.

:lol:

There has to be some sort of record company shenanigans involved here, like they saw the cost of producing these things and thought there is no way more than 80,000 people would want a physical copy in the era of streaming.

Are you saying none of these songs get in your head?

Yup, ordered same day it was available on Amazon US. It shipped Wed, supposed to be here by 8:00pm, but it's USPS, so hopefully WELL before.

BTW, how jealous are you of the brave Fools who have abstained from listening to ANY new Tool, and will experience it all in one overwhelming dosage? I still wouldn't trade having all this time to experience the pieces as they came available, but I have to admit, I AM a bit jelly....

I hope those who have made the ultimate sacrifice will regale us with some detailed notes on the experience.

my impressions of the Descending and Invincible were definitely tainted by having listened to the live recordings multiple times. I became accustomed to things sounding a certain way, so hearing the studio versions is fucking with me.
