Back to this song, I have now listened to it a shit load of times and it continues to get better with every listen. I now find myself singing along (in the car of course), like I would with almost all of their other songs. I have read through all of the different articles (thanks to all the people who posted them), and am fucking psyched for this album. I hope it leaks soon, cos I can't wait.

Yeah me too...

Maybe it's our brains filling in the blanks after seeing the i in Pim at the start of the name and just concluding that another i comes after the second capital letter P here.

Sorta like how we can figure our "F*ck me" and "Holy sh*t" without too much processing :)

if by any chance you are in the Monterrey, Mexico area the day FI drops, the brewpub I help run will have a FI listening party, free admission of course, and we are giving away Tool stickers! I'll buy you a beer if you are there!

Also, something I read in the Metal Hammer interview, JC: "One day during the tour, Maynard's like 'Excuse me, Jus, can I have a word with you?' And I was like, 'Oh no, I'm in trouble'. And he goes, 'Can I ask you a favour? You know, in Invincible, can you get the crowd to not clap during that part? Because it really throws me off!'. The next night I didn't do the pointing thing, and it was hard for me. I'm like 'What am I going to do, just stand in the shadows and be quiet'. And guess what? They all clapped anyway! They're literally clapping a polyrhythm. And I looked over at him and I just flipped him off."

Classic Justin! He should be the spokesperson of this band!

He should I’m loving that he’s so reclusive but then makes the band appear most human.

he’s also completely made me want to get a bass.

I met Justin once and he was a super nice guy. Really humble and was quite talkative. Signed some stuff for me. Much different from my MJK experience.

Just a drive by: two weeks to go!!!

I hope everyone holding out is hanging in there, and I hope Chill's girl is doing okay.

I saw that Adam posted the track list to Instagram (mostly likely old news for everyone here), but it definitely caught me wide-eyed. :)

I'm sure there's been a lot of discussion about many things, and I'm looking forward to catching up on the 30th. It's going to take me some time to get through all these pages though...with more sure to come in the next two weeks.

Definitely looking forward to your review of the album Hellboy, and everyone else's thoughts too. Guaranteed to be some awesome things to read.

Can't give up on the count down we started over 100 days ago, so I'll most likely drop in next Friday too.

\m/

:D
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

I'm still hanging in there with you Norm. I'm barely even lurking the forum these days. Avoiding all reviews and reactions to reviews. 2 more weeks.

I want to be like nxrm and Billy Hill when i grow up. I did hear 2 minutes of A/Descending at the '14 shows, though. I was so spoiled upon discovering tool in 2010. Everything they ever made was at my disposal. The first song i fell in love with, The Patient, has also helped make a decade-long journey make more sense. All the while my viewpoint has been that i was not owed anything else and that wanting more tool after being hit with the likes of Cold & Ugly, Prison Sex, Flood, Ænima(album), Lateralus(album), Salival, Wings Pt. 2, D/R/T, Intension's meditative moments, epiphany inducing mammoths known as Parabola and Rosetta Stoned and the masterpiece Maynard's Dick. I had all the tool I would ever need.

and now, Fi, more tool than i could ever ask for; clocking in at approx. 90 mins.

"What have I done to be worthy?"



So, being a (relatively) new tool fan, i feel i must give Fear Inoculum(Fi) a proper first listening accompanied by an open mind and no expectations. I want to try my best to apply what i've learned from the song lateralus when listening to Fi. "Overthinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, leaving opportunities(for growth) behindddddd" "Feed my will to feel this moment, urging me to cross the line", these are the ideas i want to be true for my first experience with Fi. I want everyone else to take any pressure they have off of themselves or tool and try to approach the new album in a way that would make our tool fandom proud. Try to replace any fear that tool sounds different with faith in tool's knowledge and ability.

Thank you again 4th eye!

It's funny that they claim that the album sounds digital, given the fact that it's one of the few records out there that got recorded completely on analog tape.

I think the "digital" comment more comes from an increased use of synths than anything else. I don't think clarity in the mix is necessarily a "digital" thing.

Wow, this is really interesting. All stores I contacted in Germany/UK had absolutely no info or did not want to share anything about possible vinyl. Wondering if there is a difference between the 4LP mentioned and the CD+vinyl coming later this fall.
Man, why not give us all information about coming editions so we can decide which one to buy??

This was posted on a forum. The guy who posted this is from New Zealand I think, and it's from his local record store. But what I'm really intrigued about is what the store owner wrote on the note about the 4 LP and the CD+vinyl(October/November), oh and the "At the request of the band".
Could Tool actually drop some vinyl on us on release day?

And given MJK's vox were recorded at home in AZ, those would have most likely been recorded digitally.

Where has this been confirmed? The one article that mentions it is talking about when they were writing, but people seem to be conflating it with the actual recording.

Still going strong here as well nxrm & Bill Hilly. Just did a quick check in/catchup and looks like a we are in for something truly special. It’ll be here before we know it!

Cheers all!

I don't know it it's been confirmed 100%, but Maynard indicated in an interview a few months back that he records all his vocals and home, and give that Mat Mitchell I believe is in the liner notes, this would appear to confirm that.
