    No im not talking about the awesome super mod b16... i recently purchased tool's cd Aenima after having listened to them on the radio for years and never buying anything. Ive gotta say i should have bought it sooner, this has got to be one of my new favorite cds of all time. stinkfist, h., 46 and 2, and aenima are all great songs that i never really knew the names to until i bought this cd. are the rest of their cds as good as this one?

    if you like tool, the undertow album is a must. opiate is pretty cool,

    check out "a perfect circle" same lead singer and songwriter, but a little bit more artsy music.

    Eat some shrooms and watch Nightmare Before Christmas with the volume down and Lateralus playing.

    welcome to the party... you're 14 years late

    jeebus man

    Ænima was released in fucking 1996

    anyway... yes it is a phenomenal CD

    it is hard to say whether or not you would like the rest of Tool's stuff because every disc is quite different from the others

    Opiate - 1992
    Undertow - 1993
    Ænima - 1996
    Salival - 2000 (CD/DVD or VHS set... CD contains live songs, DVD/VHS has Videos... Tool has really fucking weird videos)
    Lateralus - 2001
    10,000 Days - 2006


    i like, and own, all of their stuff... Ænima is my favorite disc of theirs (definitely in my top 3 of all time list)... but id be hard pressed to place the rest in any particular order, they are all very good in their own ways, and depending on my mood i will readily reach for any one of them

    A Perfect Circle is definitely something to check out... you will likely love that too
    Mer de Noms - 2000
    Thirteenth Step - 2003
    Emotive - 2004

    all are excellent

    Puscifer is another of Maynard's side projects... but that is completely different than the Tool or APC, or anything else youve probably heard, and should be approached with caution... its kinda weird... a lot of people cant get into it

    "V" Is for Vagina - 2007
    "V" Is for Viagra. The Remixes - 2008
    "C" Is for (Please Insert Sophomoric Genitalia Reference HERE) - 2009

    i have the first 2 discs... they are both good... i havent yet been able to find the third... but from what i have heard on their website it is also good stuff

    I have this shirt, but it's extra large, so I've never worn it. It's still brand new, just sits in my drawer.

    here are the 8 videos that Tool has released

    The first five are available in the Salival box set (the VHS version does not contain "Hush").

    The two from Lateralus (Schism and Parabola) are each available on their own DVD singles, as is the "Vicarious" (from the CD 10,000 Days) video.

    on a side note...

    watching Tool videos on a big ass screen while on some form of hallucinogenic may or may not be the best idea

    just a heads up :)

    My uncle is starting a new band with tool's lead guitarist Adam Jones.








    I'm pretty stoked.












    And I used to rock a tool bumper sticker on my crx when I was 16. Gotta love 'em.

    Tool is easily the best concert I've ever been to. They rarely tour, but if you ever get the opportunity, SEE THEM!
