Album is ******* sick! Yeah, took a while, as they all do. I flew down to Melbourne for the Sunday gig (Awesome!!!) and it just clicked after listening to it through the headphones on the flight home.Just discovered this thread, reading through the initial opinions is pretty funny.
I think as all tool fans know, it takes several intense listens and time to percolate.
I remember glossing over fear inoculum several times and then something clicked. Now I hold it equal to all the others (I love them all equally)

I think hearing a few of the songs live is what did it. So glad I took the plunge to fly down for that. Been locked up ever since.
