Not Tool's best album, but still a fantastic one. Just because the genre is out of vogue doesn't necessarily mean an album adhering to it is poor. 7empest is one of their finest tracks

The new Tool is quite impressive. Not many artists can up ther song length like that and have it still hold together compositionally.

It's like classic Tool but with expanded horizons, which beats the heck out of all the artists who play it safe and jest keep releasing the same album over and over.

Ok, so screw the Fantano review, I'm giving my own feedback now. I'm not the biggest Tool fan, but as far as comebacks go this is a pretty good one (7/10). They are not reinventing the wheel or anything with this record, but that's because they don't need to. It all feels very Tool, which I would describe as some sort of "meditative" prog metal. Long songs, big build-ups, and an overall slow pace. Tool is for patient metalheads, on a couple of levels. I think the 13 year wait has satisfied the hype, but IMO not exceeded it. I have listened to the album about 4 times now, perhaps my rating might go up with more listens.

Favourites: Pneuma, Invincible, Culling Voices

Every time Tool or Radiohead have ever made an album, my first few listens are always “wow, boring. This is the worst one ever.” But they always grow on me and I find myself immersed in the layers involved and will eventually find myself loving it.
So I’m not surprised by my first thoughts on the album. Seems to drag on. But I remember thinking the same about Lateralus when it first came out. So I shall listen and wait for it to come as it always has. I’ve found that the albums that I love right off the bat are ones I get burned out on quicker.

"The 5th listening of a Tool song will never be as good as the 50th"
I found this comment below one of these songs on Youtube and I think it describes perfectly what should be your approach to this kind of music: you need patience to uncover the layers embedded within these compositions
I've listened to this album "only" ten times and I'm digging it A LOT, but I feel there is so much more deep inside it
