shit, the dozen+ years since 10,000 minutes of yawn was effective in drawing me back in if only to figure out whether or not they were "back"

alas, they're still wherever they went after the eargasm that was Aenima

I was a pretty big Tool fan back in high school. Lateralus is my favorite album from them. But eventually my tastes have changed and there was so much time between albums that I just lost interest in them. And I've been getting tired of Maynard as a person in general.

I just get weird flashbacks to high school of the different metal and rock people at school when Tool ever gets brought up. Tool fan and Led Zepplin fan had the same aire about themselves, just a stand offish attitude that may or may not have been real but geez i sure felt something from them in a judgemental way. Then there was Metallica Nothing Else Matters fan who just knew that one song and played it forever. One of my history teachers was a big Rush fan and i talked Maiden with him and gushed about our fandoms of said bands. Dragonforce fan littered the band and orchestra classes, one cello player who played football didn't like Pantera's glam era. Yeah, thats about it.


Tool Time.

I think i was fine with Led Zepplin even though i didnt listen to them a whole ton outside the radio, but the thing that just drove me up a wall was that the Tool fans would keep driving home the point that Tool was the next Led Zepplin. I never really got the whole x is the new y thing.

Always had a weird taste in my mouth when i listened to Tool, like i thought "i should really like this, this really should be the best music out there." And i just didn't get it, it was fine, but i was neither moved or unmoved by Tool song to the point to proclaim such a statement like they were the 2nd coming of some band that has little to no similarities with one another.

Thanks Tool.

Tool was one of my favorite bands in high school, but I watched them singlehandedly (along with A Perfect Circle) transform one of my friends and former band mates in the most insufferable pretentious art-rock dude.

In the later 2000s he started getting into making potions and all that arcane shit. He dropped out of college with a full ride because it wasn’t stimulating him. It’s a little ironic that now that I’m a DnD nerd and now I’m way into fantasy arcane shit too, just because it’s fun.

Tools website the blog posts by Blair Blake were the fucking WORST

I don't really like Tool at all.  It's one of those bands I feel like I ought to like, but just can't do it.  I've honestly never even penetrated any of their albums except Opiate.  I'd list some other bands in that category, but I'd probably just piss people off!  I do love the first track on Mer de Noms though.
