I remember thinking that Lateralus was a disappointment when it got released, I just wanted another Aenima and it was a big change in style.Fair enough. They have said they’re not metal enough for the metal heads or prog enough for the prof fans either. I remember hearing the lateralus album through a handful of times and I thought what the hell is this? After maybe a dozen listens I was about to give up on it but then it sort of clicked and I couldn’t stop listening to it. I still think that’s their best album nothing really sounds like it and it’s a whole album experience. I’m expecting the album as a whole to be an experience and take multiple listens. What’s your fav prog stuff from the 70’s out of interest? Might give a few a listen.
Took me a long time to appreciate how good it was but Aenima was the same, it took me months or even years to fully appreciate how good they were.
I would now say that Lateralus (the single) is the best song Tool has produced, better than any songs off Aenima but Aenima is still their best album.
Lateralus is a masterpiece and showcases how good Danny Carey is as a drummer.
There is a reason that you never hear of cover bands playing Tool songs, no other drummer can play the sticks like Danny Carey.
Cog is the closest band to Tool Australia has produced, great band.My mrs loves king giz. There’s a few pretty good progish bands from oz around. Karnivools sound awake album is brilliant and is one of my fav bands. Dead letter circus. Circles. Cog. Breaking orbit. Dunno if sleepmakeswaves is oz but their a good instrumental and. Blatherskite is an older one. There’s be a fair few other around. I know that the alternative/underground scene has been pretty big in oz for a long time. I grew up in country SA and late 90’s early 00’s everyone was listening to tool Metallica and the grunge scene and a lot of older stuff for the 60’s and 70’s. Still do now.
Love this song.
