The new song is absolutely fantastic. The production is amazing, the slow build is pure Tool. Everything is working. Worth the wait. 

I've listened a couple of times.

It's pretty cool but I feel like it's a slow build that never actually gets anywhere.

Hopefully it'll grow on me.

It's TOOL so it's better than 99.9% of all music that's out there...but it's nothing mind-blowing in the context of their oeuvre.  It just sounds like an album track from Lateralus or 10,000 Days.   Still really great, but it's not "Aenima" great.....that record was undoubtedly their peak.

OK, so it's not "OUT" but some cunt has it in his possession, just like our recent situation.   I see.

No no, it's out but I can't post links :D

It's kind of like a spirit quest of an album.

Smoke a doobie, drop some acid, eat some mushrooms. 

Tune in, drop out, take over sort of deal. 

It's not a giant shit metaphor like Aenima so I'm more keen on it.

It's an interesting noise.

Album is amazing. I can't believe they delivered after all the hype. I feared it could be polarizing like CD was but no, it fully delivered

 

7empest is just too good. I feel like there were 45 different riffs in that one and all of them were good. That solo around 11th minute is :o 

 

It's 80 minutes long but it feels short :lol:

I like it. 

I'll give it a couple more listens but I think the valleys last a bit too long.

7empest hits you like a ton of bricks though. Great stuff.

The production is top notch.

Strange there isn't more hype on this forum. I know that leaks are happening right now but this is the biggest metal release since Metallica's last album

Planning to listen to the full thing soon. Looking forward to it! Happy it’s finally out. I like what I’ve heard from it so far.

I'm loving this album!

Takes a few listens to really get in to it - for me anyway - but once you're in it's amazing.

Pneuma is my favourite so far. One of their greatest songs for me.

Terribly boring. You wait forever & it goes nowhere. Vocals are utterly terrible.

I'll leave it to wankers, nothing of interest to me.

It's a very competent record, of course. But it feels like I keep waiting for something that never actually happens. On a lot of the songs. Well, except 7empest, which is just in full gear the whole time. But songs like Invincible and Culling Voices feel like they should have something more to them. It feels like quite a meditative record, which is fine. And it's quite good in places. But it doesn't jump out at me as many times as I would like.

Some folks think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness, some fools fool themselves I guess, but they're not fooling me.
I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true, love is a just a lie, made to make you blue.

Love hurts.

I've listened to it 5 or 6 times .....Decent, nothing more nothing less. Pnuema the best song on here by a mile. Not sure why everyone's raving about 7empest maybe it's the shock of a tempo change! Not worth the wait which is a shame.

Friends of mine are big TOOL fans.

I've listened to their discography this week.

I liked Fear Inoculum straight away.

I'm not sure what my favourite track is yet.

I think I'm fatigued from listening to Lateralus, 10'000 Days and Fear Inoculum back to back.

Why can't I find the CD anywhere?

Because it sold out :lol: It comes with a screen and a speaker and it sold out. They said they'll release another limited edition very soon. Check their social media, I saw it somewhere for sure

Agree with the consensus that 7empest is the only song that really moves you on first listen. But otherwise it's kind of a slog to get through this album. It's technically good, but the pacing of the whole thing seems a little too self-indulgent for my tastes.
