Great sound, great lyrics and great music all together. A well formed band by Maynard James Keenan of Tool. The guitars on this cd are great. The opening track "The Hollow" shows great guitar skills from the intro all the way to the end.The bass is great too, in "Thinking Of You" Paz shows a funky but real good bass line that fits the song just right. The drums go great with the bands melloness of songs like "Orestes" and "3 Libras". Simple, but great beats for such songs as well as "Judith" and "Magdelena". And not to forget Maynards voice which gos so soothing yet so perfect to the bands music.

This cd is a definate must have. Not just a cd to throw in at night when you're feeling mello, but a cd to throw in whenever or wherever you are. The music is soothing yet so strong and the lyrics are amazing. Might just be one of the best cd's I have ever heard in my life. And if you get the chance, see them live! They are just as amazing as they are in the cd!(if not maybe better!).
