Tool likes to be mysterious, or at least aloof. So I’m not going to tell you much. I’ve been sworn to secrecy. What I will tell you is I think their 2nd (Undertow – 1993) and 3rd (Ænima – 1996) albums are far and away their best. Everything after is too god damn “artsy” for me. Yeah, 9 minute songs that drone on with moaning and slow rhythms, layered in textures and atmosphere are all well and good, but please spare me. Just please rock, hard. Thank you.
What you’ll find here is the good stuff. Enjoy you tool.
