Tool: Lateralus

Sound — 10
The sound on this album is by far the best that Tool have to date. Each riff, bass-line, drum beat and vocal chord is completely clear to the human ear, which is rare on a lot of albums.

Lyrics — 10
Each of Maynard James Keenans words in every song is sung so heart-felt that it really strikes a nerve with the listener, encouraging him/her to sit and listen in a trance for the entire duration of the album. As always, Tool pull this of marvellously.

Overall Impression — 10
This is definitely one of the best albums to have been released in the past decade, Tool are so under-rated it shouldn't be legal! Go out and buy this album now! I would definitely buy it again if I lost it.
