5.0 out of 5 stars Shame. He Doesn't get it, does he?, August 31, 2004
This review is from: Opiate (Audio CD)
Firstly, anyone sad enough to come to a review about a band that they just want to shoot down is exactly that ... SAD. So to you, "Torny", I'd say that you probably have deeper issues than being overweight. In any case, who are you to shoot down the opinions of every fan of Tool or judge them and generalise and jump to your obviously confused conclusions? I'm not overweight, if it means anything, and I know that tool make good music. I don't care if you don't like it. I'm not going to base my likes and dislikes on what you think. And, just because you can use big words doesn't mean you are somewhere above "pseudo-intellectual".

Torny, you might or might not have noticed that Mayanard is not the only member of Tool. Tool features respected drummer Danney Carey, award-winning guitarist Adam Jones, and an unmistakably brilliant bassist, Justin Chancellor. Tool uses complex rhythms and time signatures such as 5/4 and 7/8. This is not an easy thing to do, and I speak from experience, being a drummer, guitarist and vocalist. Yet, I suppose that to the common music listener it all sounds the same.

As for the fact that us "ugly suburban losers" haven't experienced any hardship ... who the hell are you to say? Maybe you feel that you have had a hard time of life, but if you were perhaps even close to "pseudo-intellectual", you would be able to understand that Mayanard's lyrics reflect serious issues which he experienced.

Since you brought up the topic of angst, I think you should take a look at yourself before you continue. You clearly wrote your review either to let out some frustrations, obviously due to your unbearable issues, or to get the attention you've been deprived of for most of your life.

So, to anyone who knows what good music is, and anyone that appreciates this music, go get it. If you enjoy Kayo Dot, and I do not doubt that it is good music, get that too. Just be open minded, and bear other people's opinions in mind before you publicly embarass yourself.
