TOOL makes all other bands sound like amateurs.
Sorry, but it's true. They really make every other band in existence sound like amateur garage bands.

Recommended songs to prove my point:

Lateralus

10,000 Days (pt.2)

The Patient

Intolerance

4 Degrees (I don't know how to make the "degrees" symbol on the keyboard!)

46&2

Parabol/Parabola

Third Eye

Eulogy

...and many more!

Re: TOOL makes all other bands sound like amateurs.
I was really impressed with Tool initially. But after hearing several albums I realised that they are completely lacking in soul. The lyrics are rather weak too.

Technically impressive (well, the drumming is!), but empty.

Yep, "Opiate" remains their best album to date, but no one seems to have even heard of it.

I think Tool's biggest problem is the inanity of their lyrics. They are all far too miserable and whiny. It's all schoolboy stuff.

Re: TOOL makes all other bands sound like amateurs.
Truthfully, I gave up hope on Tool when I went to their website about a year or so back. They had all these pictures from their vacation, and any illusion of tortured music is immediately destroyed when you see Maynard in shorts and a hawaiian print t-shirt posing with the locals in Australia.

Also, "A Perfect Circle" didn't help. There was a decent tune or two there, but a lot of it was just a little too lightweight for me.

Re: TOOL makes all other bands sound like amateurs.
I can never decide it I like TOOL more than the Maynard side project, A Perfect Circle. APC has much less material, so I guess TOOL would win by default. However, this doesn't make APC any less awesome. Anyone willing to check them out will notice they are a little more traditional than TOOL, if TOOL seems to be a bit too "out there" for you.

Re: TOOL makes all other bands sound like amateurs.
You know what really turned me on to Tool? It was the fact that Maynard used to wear a mask on stage to cover up his identity. I thought, "Wow, this is how it should be. A musician should not want to be seen, but heard". Yet, somehow, over time, I can't help but feel that their message has become sterile. It is some kind of strangeness now that maybe should not even be listened to.

I couldnt disagree more, they force you to change your perception of what "beauty" is. Third Eye for example is one of the most beautiful songs Ive ever heard.

As far as making all other bands sound like amateurs however I disagree. Tool is my personal fav, but to call bands like Floyd, The beatles, Led Zep, amateurs is just idiodic.

While recent bands do tend to suck big massive balls, there are a few. Evanesance, Avenge Sevenfold, Alice in Chains, are a few that are good in more recent music.

However the greatest band while not my personal fav, but the band that could manipulate sound to an almost living form is The Greatful Dead.

Hey now, not a big Tool fan anymore, but in all fairness, I can listen to all 26 minutes of Pink Floyd's "Echoes" parts 1+2 and not get bored.

Tool used to be great. They meandered off and I just don't get them anymore.

That said, "Undertow" is still one of my all-time favorite CDs.
