New album to be released on August 30th
I have a huge cd collection but haven't bought an actual cd in a couple of years.Haven't been as excited for a release in my whole life. Their instagram has been released updated moving versions of their old album covers over the past week leading up to the clip from above.
Legitimately might take August 30th off work.
And yet you're excited for the new Tool album??Probably only listened to both albums a handful of times at most without full attention.
Yes, I listened to their singles a lot and always followed them at each release, but I do this with alot of bands, I’ll listen 5-6 times the album and listen to the next band. Too much music to listen to, lol.And yet you're excited for the new Tool album??
That's fair enough, I'm completely the opposite. I like to spend time with albums, usually 10-20 listens (maybe much more if they are really great), and I'll periodically return to them in phases, or they might enter regular rotation. Especially if I buy something decent, I want some in-use value & in-depth familiarity, imprint it in my memory sort of thing. Otherwise it's just all passing listens and collecting, a bit meaningless. I understand its difficult in the digital and especially streaming era, so much stuff, I fully get it and struggle with that too. But if I get a buzz with an album, I like to follow that through till it fatigues or something new finally pulls me away. Otherwise you never get past that first impression and miss out on opportunities to click with growers.Yes, I listened to their singles a lot and always followed them at each release, but I do this with alot of bands, I’ll listen 5-6 times the album and listen to the next band.

I bought Lateralus on release day at JB etc.
I’m just a lazy music follower, fade in and out of intrigue etc.
Even Lateralus was a let down for me initially as I just wanted another Aenima but looking back on it now it's a great album, it just suffers from being the follow up to one of the GOAT albums and then 10,000 Days suffered the same fate, although I haven't listened to it as much as Aenima or Lateralus to fully appreciate it.10000 Days was much better then it gets credit for, it’s just coming after Aenima and Lateralus, so hard to follow.
I've only really just come to properly appreciate 10k days over the last couple of months while I've listening to basically wall to wall Tool in anticipation of the new album. My problem in 2006 was that I really wanted Lateralus 2 and 10k is not that. Lateralus has been my favourite album ever from the first time I listened to it. I already liked Tool before that, but only really as a casual listener alongside stuff like NIN, RATM, and RHCP which were my favourites.10000 Days was much better then it gets credit for, it’s just coming after Aenima and Lateralus, so hard to follow.
