10,000 Days



So yesterday, as many of you may or may not have known if you are regular visitors to this blog, was the official release date of Tool's latest album 10,000 Days. As you may have guessed from my semi-regular countdown leading up to the release date, I was the kind of Tool fan who had to make his way down to Best Buy the day of to get my grubby little paws on the new offering.

After having listened to it I can say that, musically, it's unlike anything else I've ever heard. You know what? The texture of their music seems to only get richer with each album. The massive sound that four guys can produce never ceases to amaze me. I do think that from my first experiences with this disc that the song structures are the most non-traditional song structures they've ever done. It's just amazing to listen to.

I'm still on the fence as to whether or not it tops Lateralus, if it will top Lateralus, or if it even should try to top Lateralus.

You should definitely check it out if you get a chance. It's a powerful piece of music.

Also, before I forget....

Happy Birthdays Nadine, Darcy, Ian, and Cory. See you soon, hopefully.

Peace out folks. Will post more later.

This basically sums up my opinion so far. It's a great record, no doubt, but I'm not sure it's their best work to-date. Of course, maybe it's not supposed to be "better," so much as "different." I dunno. It's damn good, either way.
