Tool becomes the new opiate of the masses
on July 27, 2002
This EP doesn't stack up well against Tool's LP's, which is understandable given their brilliance, but it is still very good. I found it to be too musically generic, and Maynard hadn't fully honed his vocal skills yet, yelling through most of the record, with title track being his finest effort. However, one can clearly see evidence of the lyrical genius that was to come later on in Undertow, Aenima, and Lateralus.
If you like angry hard rock (and, honestly, who doesn't?) this is a good, cheap buy. However, if you're looking for something more like the Tool LPs, you'll be suprised, for better or for worse, with what you hear.
