    Looks like they've released more but they are all nose bleed seats.

    Here's a fun fact that most of you probably didn't know. In the early 90's Tool drummer Danny Carry (sp?) was in the band Green Jelly, and did their famous Cereal Killer Soundtrack. Maynard did the "not by the hair on my chinny chin chin" vocals on The Three Little Pigs.

    I don't even need lyrics on a Tool album. Just spend 75 minutes playing instruments, since about 60 of those minutes already are instrumental - and it's awesome.

    And, for the record, any artist that writes a song to the Fibonacci sequence has to be considered one of the greatest ever.

    Laterallus the song really is a masterpiece. The chorus is one 7 beat measure, then an 8 beat measure, then a 9 beat measure repeated.

    Lateralus the entire album is a masterpiece (but yeah, I understand what you're saying). Much stronger than 10.000 Days and I liked that album.

    I like it but I feel like that album is washed out in the same color so to speak. There isn't enough diversity in the sounds for me, Undertow falls in that same light for me as well. The drums are amazing however, and the strong pieces to that album are VERY strong. For me 10,000 Day is my favorite and Aenima coming in just barely behind it. I can't turn away from Wings for Marie. So amazing.

    “Sober” and “Undertow” from the Undertow album is Tool to me. Quiet quiet quiet...EXPLOSION.

    I like those songs but overall that album is too raw for me.

    Normally I'd agree with what you're saying, but for some reason I like that about Lateralus - 75 minutes of songs that play seamlessly into one another, as if it was one song in itself.

    Section 105 here. Some of my best seats for a TOOL show.

    Danny Carry and Tom Morello went to high school together.

    Maynard and Poopie, they're both insane!

    The singer from Green Jelly has "franchise" band members around the world that he plays with. So if he plays Portland, for example, he has band members in that area that he will have play live shows in that area. So basically the band is the singer and hundreds of fans that get to be actual band members. My son and I are putting together a Green Jelly franchise here in New Mexico.

    Tool was good in time and place and I’d be lying if I didn’t couch meld with them on mushrooms.

    The 1992 live version of sober might be my favorite live video of a band ever.
