Oh gosh, a top 10.... almost impossible because sometimes it just depends on what state I am in.

But 10 songs who come up first

Highest tier:
Aenema
Lateralus
10,000 Days
Rosetta Stoned
Fear Inoculum
Pneuma
Descending

Just a small dot behind highest tier:
Flood
jimmy
Pushit
Ticks & Leeches
Schism
Jambi
Intension
Invincible
7empest.

Fuck, here we go again, more then 10...

Pfffft please, the guy is an amateur, where is The gaping lotus experience or Los Angeles Municipal Court?

I've decided that if I go to a Tool VIP event I'm going to scream DIVORCED when they ask for a song to play during sound check, fuck the other Tool nerds.

Hmm, tough task. Try to think of this as being the only 10 TOOL songs you are allowed to listen to for the rest of your life. What has to be included? Anything that's borderline should be dismissed. I have to include Third Eye here; if i went the next 50 years without hearing it again I'd be one grumpy 85 year old motherfucker... Same applies for a few others here. Okay, with that criteria and mindset, let's do this:


1. Third Eye
2. 7empest
3. Pneuma
4. Stinkfist
5. 46 & 2
6. Invincible
7. Reflection
8. Jambi
9. Lateralus
10. Pushit


Some pretty sad omissions here (Parabola, Descending, the entire Opiate and Undertow releases). This is bound to change...

1- 10: PUSHIT
- You like noisy music?
- Yes. The louder the better. Stops me from thinking.
- You don't like to think? What do you like?
- Never thought about it.

A tough task. In order of release:

1) 46&2
2) Pushit
3) Third Eye
4) The Grudge
5) The Patient
6) Lateralus
7) D/R/T
8) Jambi
9) Intension
10) Descending

I feel like at any given moment 10k Days, Rosetta Stoned, Aenema and Flood slip in there but I'm pretty happy with the above.

Really surprised that parabol(a) and Hooker don't make it on most lists.

? Hwap is one of the weaker tool songs in general. And parabol is fine as it is but the other songs are just better.

I love HWAP for the anger and Parabol(a) for that awesome tempo change from parabol into parabola. I have been lucky enough to see most of my favorites live over the last 20 years.

Gonna have to put playlists together from some of your top 10's. They seem like dream setlists.
