Tool fans. Give this album a chance please. You need to listen to it a few times through before trashing it. The lyrics are AMAZING as always. If you don't actually listen or know what this album is all about you are missing the point. For instance Marie & 10,000 days WHY?

Judith Marie was Maynard James Keenan's mother's name. She was a very religious person. One day she had a stroke that left her in a wheelchair partially paralyzed. This stroke only strengthened her belief in God - something that Maynard found to be pretty ironic. She was paralyzed for 27 years before dying in June 03, which is approximately 10,000 days. She was very religious, (Maynard wrote the APC song "Judith" at least partially about her - The lyrics in JUDITH reflect how he felt about the whole situation - "It's not like you killed someone, It's not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side, You praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed." He's saying that his mother was a good person who believed in God and yet this is how she was "thanked."), 10,000 days is about her finding her savior now that she has passed away. The song is saying that she should be in heaven, and god should not hold any thing that Maynard did against her. She kept her faith even when Maynard went down a different path. even after spending 27 years paralyzed and basically a miserable life all for her christ and lord. He's saying that she'd better get her wings, she's damn near the posterchild for keeping faith.

If you don't believe me listen to the lyrics.

10000 days in the fire is long enough.
You're going home...

You're the only one who can hold your head up high,
Shake your fist at the gates saying,
"I have come home now!

Y'know, I can understand if some people don't quite get what this album is all about, or if they feel like they can't rock out to it like Aenima, or if they don't like more reflective vocals, or if they don't like long songs...or whatever gripes some folks might have.

But 1 star? 2 stars? Are you f'in kidding me? Folks, if you want simple four-minute rock songs, mashed together in Pro Tools, with lyrical content that your average 13-year-old girl can easily understand, Nickelback is --> that way. Please go there now.

This is f'in Tool. YEP, STILL TOOL. The songs are generally very heavy, both sonically and lyrically. In fact, tracks 1, 2, and 8 are some of the most skull-crushing stuff Tool has ever recorded. I guess the problem is that the lyrics are more thoughtful and reflective. Gee. Or maybe the problem is that the musicianship is more advanced. Gee. Or maybe the problem is that the guitar mix is more spacious and the vocals are pushed back a bit, creating a more balanced sound with much crisper bass response. Gee.

Rosetta Stoned is a masterpiece. Must be amazing live. I would say Tool is the Led Zeppelin of our time, except that Tool seems healthier (lifestyle-wise) and more musically capable right now than Zep ever was at their peak. Thanks Tool for an amazing new album. Now I'll step aside so the angsty "BOO HOO I WANTED ANOTHER AENIMA BOO HOO HOO" gripe-n-moan fest may resume.

Tool is far from a band in the traditional sense of the word. More than anything they are a union of true composer/musicians. In a time when the word "artist" is used far too loosely, these juggernauts transcend the concept and define it.

"10,000 Days" does not contain songs. It is an aggregate of compositions whose content shatters the barriers of hard rock/heavy metal music. The song "10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2)" is a masterpiece itself. The aural landscape and musical skill displayed here is simply astounding.

Yes I am a Tool fan and have been since the early days of "Opiate." But my review is not derived from this prejudice. If this album were rubbish, I would sternly say so. I am pleased to state the contrary, that this album is a feat of epic proportions, and as such, is superb.

I always admired Tool for their vision and style, but until now, I never really appreciated them. Their technical perfection and creative style has never been as apparent to me as now. Some of the criticisms seem to be centered on the idea that the songs are long (wtf?) or aren't catchy jingles -- what is wrong with these critics? The title track is one of the most stellar works of music I've ever heard -- an affirmation of self-realization and a heartbreaking homage to his mother in her 27 year (10,000 day) paralysis and her eventual death. It captures imagery from mythology, religion, psychology and modern poetry to evoke the image of someone claiming their place in the universe.

I have to wonder if some of these folks are even listening to the right album. Your preference is your preference, but the repeated cries of "not like the old Tool" are pathetisad, and "too long" and "who has the time" as mental laziness. This album has blown away everything else released this year, and not just because it's Tool, but because it's beautiful.
I don't like everything they produce, and was pretty much disinterested in you sheep who are blindly crying sheep based off what someone else likes should drown yourselves.

What was lacking in 10,000 Days
I too was also dissapointed with 10,000 days. I thought there were some very good songs on ("The Pot", "Jambi", "Vicarious", and "Right In Two") but I thought the rest was overly long, and uninteresting ("Rosetta Stoned", "Wings For... Read More

Just Enough to Bring Me Down
I personally think that this is, if not Tool's best, their second best only to AEnima. Songs such as "Rosetta Stoned", "The Pot" and "Wings For Marie/10,000 Days" show the band's talent the most, although the entire album is a musical masterpiece. This album... Read More

Well, I have this album since last week... don't ask me how. I like some parts of it a lot (Vicarious is a great song as is Right in Two) and there are certainly some obscure areas (Viginti Tres i.e.) that do not match my expectations.

Now, to say that the album is a failure, well, I... Read More

this album is just another tool stunt!
I agree with Jonathan. This is not a hoax. While I don't think any of their work will ever match AEnima, this will probably go down as my 2nd fav (not sure yet, still have to give it a few more listens). This is progressive rock and it is very experimental (don't forget Pink Floyd is one of... Read More

It's not Maynard singing everybody!
He's just using a slightly different style.

(For the record, so far as I can tell, Maynard's a tenor.)
