Pneuma, takes the lead atm for me. It's... Strangely familiar, unexpected and Maynard does a hell of a job in vocals. The interlude part after the verse felt a little out of place first time around, but later showed it's purpose. Also when listening the first few times I got this irritating feeling that there is no real final or fulfilment to the tension that was grown during the tune, but after listening the album as a whole, I realized the tension gets grown through the record and there is no rush to release it in every song. Oh, and can you please buy something while at it, coz nobody does this for the love of words and expression? No? Ok, I quit this shit....

Roll it...

So, yesterday I decided to listen the start with tool's discophograpgy. Just because after all that fear Inoculum fun it had to be done.

So, started with Opiate... and, yes, Sweat is still good but during the third track I realized... Jeez Maynard how much do you sing... All those words in such short songs.
Jerk-off, Cold & Ugly and Opiate really troubled me keeping attention
Those tool bunch spoiled it all. Lol

Just occurred to me. I'm sorry the links were "embended"
to the text so that one can not see what they click if not examining the links. Will fix that in future posts. Sincere appologies from my part.

Thank you, sire. <3 (still wondering if this is just sarcasm, but want to believe it is not... Not with tool enthusiasts)

No sarcasm, but I was reading your blog and was inspired to go to a local nature reserve today and well, the moment took over me and I found myself masturbating over a particular green piece of moss, I was so lost in the moment I didn't notice the boy scout group camped near by.

Sadly to say they didn't buy, I mean understand that I was just getting back to nature and well now I've got a court appearance due in a few weeks.

Now everyone is going to think I'm some sort of public masturbator, thanks a lot.

It a beautiful thing to find reconnection with oneself and the environment! Congratulations! Glad I could be of assistance. And Do remember, it's not you that is flawed, it's the world.

Dan Brown's Fear Inoculum: Best novel ever written, inspiring, worth the wait, not enough yelling, every page reads like the DaVinci Code... 3/10

I bet this has been discussed before, but didn't find it by search. Besides the distortion on drums/bass/insert randominstrument -tracks in some of the tunes, I find it a little bit strange to hear a noticeable hissing background sound in some of the tracks. For example in Invincible, right in the beginning when the percussions (or is it xylophone?) start playing. What's up with that? Any logical explanation why it has been left on the track?

I'm not sure but I have a feeling it is either intentional or an effect of recording on tape and meanwhile achieving specific dynamics in the music.

I can't work out which of the two is my favourite Maynard contribution on this album but I do know they are without doubt his two standout moments for me.

"Sound the dread alarm
Through our primal body
Sound the reveille
To be or not to be
Rise
Stay the grand finale
Stay the reading of our swan song and epilogue"

OR

"Control, your delusion
Insane and striking at random
Victim of your certainty
And therefore your doubt's not an option
Blameless, the tempest will be just that"

His delivery in these are both absolutely on point

Great examples Busty. And boy does he deliver it well live (not 7empest, obv). MJK is clearly on top of his vocal game and enjoying this. They all are. Danny is a true göd of percussion.

Can't wait to see them, am expecting we will get descending when they come here since it's yet to be played in the country and by time they get here they would 7empest sorted and ready to go.

And oh 3rd example. I find his delivery of Pneeuuuuuma after the long winded instrumental breakdown mid song oddly satisfying.

yeah my opinion hasn't changed since first listen in that this is Danny & Justins album first and foremost. they do not put a foot wrong for me and absolutely shine start to finish.

I don't think the album really is anyone's in particular. They all have their moments. It's a very even album in that regards I reckon
