I agree. I don't think anything Tool ever releases will top Lateralus for me. It is the complete package.

I actually think that 10000 days is better than lateralus :P
But both albums are masterpieces.... One of the best albums I have ever heard.

I really ought to listen to 10000 days more; most of my experiences with Tool are limited to the first three albums.

Is Undertow good???  I heard that it is more "grungeish" and less "psychedelish" :D

All Tool albums are good.

And yes, Undertow is very different in that they had a very aggressive, grungeish thing going on, but its still an excellent album. And its not like tool has 20 albums like Rush. Its 4 proper albums, then the 1 EP and Its worth having them all.

Untertwo is great. As Phoenix mentioned, its a quite aggressive. It also has a very raw feel to it, that I really enjoy.

You forgot Salival. A dvd of their music videos up to Aenima, and a cd of live and studio tracks, it has the Timothy Leary intro of Third Eye, a badass reinterpretation of Pushit, part of me live, Merkaba (a nice spacey, trip instrumental), A cover of No Quarter, and Maynards Dick after L.A.M.C. its worth tracking down for the live songs and Merkaba.

Agreed.

 Salival is definitely another excellent addition and I completely forgot about it. I think I'm going to have to dig that out, its been a while.

I'm not a fan of Opiate or Undertow for that matter. Aenima, Lateralus, and 10k days are the only Tool albums I listen to (I think there's one or two songs of Undertow that I really like), Lateralus being my favorite (one of my all time favorite albums actually). It's perfect imo.

If you guys haven't checked out Volto, give it a spin. It's great to hear Danny Carey on a fusion setting. And the music is not too shabby either.

If I had to rank the Tool albums...

Lateralus > Ænima > 10,000 Days > Undertow

If I included Opiate, I'd actually rank it higher than Undertow believe it or not.

Tool is the one and only band I can't rank. I pretty much Like all the albums equally. It just depends on mood, which one I will listen to.

I was really impressed with the Volto record, I should give it a spin this afternoon.

MERCURY RETROGRADE
Be prepared for lots of problems as MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE UNTIL... JULY 1. So, if your cell phone call drops out in the canyon... If your order from the shopping bazaar is the wrong shirt size... If your Bic won't spark that blunt after only 2,999 flicks... If your VHS tape of "The Eighteen Year Old SchoolGirls" suddenly has a faulty end-of-tape detection mechanism... If the Cheetos nubs in the bag are smaller than usual... If your car battery goes dead (and there's no alien spaceship that sounds like a broken lawnmower nearby)... If they get your order wrong at the Jack-In-The-Box drive-thru... If your cochlear neural interface implant goes on the fritz... If the commercials are louder than the television show that your watching... If you get bitten by a black widow spider after falling onto the floor after being hit between the eyes by popped champagne cork... YOU NOW KNOW WHAT TO BLAME.
Also, if you are currently working on ANY creative project, you should probably stop until after July 1... Unless, of course, you are in a band called TOOL, and busy working on material for a new record. If this is the case, back up your hard drive... and go with the flow!

It's like watching a fuckload of fish storming the food pellets.

Not here, but every other person I know that is into Tool is freaking out, and on other message boards. Ugh... It's cool seeing updates, sure; but yeah, every announcement is nothing but lubrication for an ass-fucking.

Until it isn't. When that time comes, so will I. Till then, I'm just beatin' the meat.  :\ :corn

I suppose that's mostly the point. It could be big news, it probably isn't, but it's so faded beneath loads of bullshit that most of the dimwitted tools (LLLLLOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLL) fall for it anyway. It'd be nice if it was. I'm expecting zilch. Moving along...

I have listened Aenima for about 20 times now.  It's pretty good album! I think that The Third Eye might be my favourite song from the album at the moment.
But I got to say that Aenima doesn't even come close to the greatness of 10000 days... for now.

I wasn't aware of the legal problems mentioned in this article:

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/tools-adam-jones-danny-carey-explain-new-album-delay/

Of course, the "it's done when it's done" comment has me thinking we're looking at a 2016 release minimum  :lol

You know, even though I have no problem waiting for albums anyway, it should shut the whiners right up (not referencing anything here so don't go all drama) with the comment "It's not good when it's done, it's done when it's good". I really like that he said that and it's a reminder that the longer you work on something, the more it (hopefully lolz) gets better, more refined. Hopefully everything is finally resolved before the final work begins but it sounds like they just need to figure out their own lives and get shit done, then they can get together and hash out an epic. It's cool to hear they've got one already it sounds.

But y'know, they've been at least keeping us updated as opposed to the last few years and it's been getting more and more steady. Either way it's getting there, good to hear.

I'm by no means a Tool fan, but I happened across that article today and couldn't help but laugh my ass off. Such a lawsuit wouldn't keep a band of Tool's status from having an album all but on the shelves if they really wanted it. They might not be able to release anything right now, but they've had more than enough time to be one step away from that. For a band that is notorious for making fans wait this "news" seems like nothing but a cop out.

I think that's a bit much, it isn't as if they're making out the lawsuit to be the only reason that they haven't released anything. I don't see why they'd lie about that, they clearly don't feel any need to appease the fans, and I'm fine with that. I think the term 'making the fans wait' is kinda odd...a band releases material when they release it. It's not like they were on a specific schedule for any long period of albums.  :lol I just don't see the cop out in this...it's just news, and 'a part' of the reason for delay.
