    I guess I need to break down and listen to the new Tool album.

    Flashbacks of fanboys who've never listened to anything besides 4/4 and 6/4 rambling on and on with a list of meters Tool has played in.

    Not sure what others are saying but I think it's fantastic. I was never concerned about it not being good. I couldn't get into 10,000 days when it first came out. Let it breathe and revisited down the road and now love that it as much as everything they have ever done...

    ...this feels like an evolution of that album. Maybe I'm just suffering from NTS (new tool syndrome) but I haven't wanted to stop listening yet. Album on repeat since Wed. errr I mean yesterday...yeah... Aug 30th :P Packaging is neato too!

    Has Tool always been a snooze fest like in this album?

    You've not listened to any of their other albums? If this is putting you to sleep listen to Undertow or Ænima. If you don't like them either you just don't like Tool. I'm not the guy who is going to argue about certain music is better than other. I was just being silly with my first comment. If you love listening to any music as much as me then we have something to talk about!

    Cant say I’ve really tried to listen to their other stuff, but wasn’t crazy about what snippets I heard nonetheless. Tried FI (more than a casual flick through listen), since it was easily available to stream, and found it mildly mind numbing.

    @Hands agree with Blake from btbam, also Matt Garstka from Animals as Leaders. New Tool album is good, but on repeat listens it does get a little boring.

    Nah. Different, yes. Better, no. (I love Danny Carey btw.)

    @LetMeBeFrank My opinion of AaL as a whole dramatically dropped after seeing them live. They were awful. Incredibly sloppy and uncoordinated. Not necessarily disagreeing on the drummer’s talent though.

    My comment wasn't a knock on Tool or Carry. Just a flashback from too many guys from the 90's who'd never heard progressive drumming blathering on as if it was something new and revolutionary.

    @Hands weird, I saw them in Detroit in 2014 and they were awesome.

    @LetMeBeFrank It may have just been the venue, technical issues, or maybe they weren’t feeling well. I guess I can’t rule that out.

    I know I’m a biased fanboy, but I do like Martin Axenrot as well. His drumming is less overtly showy or complex than some, nor does Opeths stuff usually call for anything absurd, but he has a lot of subtle depth to his playing.

    Saw Animals As Leaders live. That drummer has a small drum kit but when he stops jazzing it up it is hard to believe. When a drummer can make a small drum kit sound like a thunder storm like that, I listen.

    Danny Carey is a god, but I’d put Tomas Haake in the same breath
