Sound — 10
The band's sound is still as unique and original as Opiate, that is great because there isn't many bands who sound so unique and so Orignial like them. I Read a artical on Adam Jones in Guitar World and he said that people are saying that is took 10,000 Days to record this album but if it was true, it would have been relesed in about 27 Years. The thing on this album that I really like is the Talk-Box Solo in Jambi which is really cool. If you don't have this album, go buy it right now.
Lyrics — 10
The things that Adam Jones writes about hasn't changed and I hope it never does. The lyrics are just perfect with the music, the perfect example of that is Vicarious, The Pot, and Rosetta Stoned. Maynard's singing has not changed one bit and his voice is perfect in Rosetta Stoned when he's singing so fast.
Overall Impression — 10
Tool has never been like other bands in any way and they will always be like that, I'm very impressed with Jambi, Vicarious, The Pot, Rosetta Stoned, Right In Two, and the rest. I love everything about the album, if it was stolen or lost, I won't go buy anthor copy because that would be anthor 15 bucks out of my pocket, I'd go beat up the person who stole it.
