Tool Ranked

LP's only.
10,000 Days

The first 5 tracks are all astonishing and it was definitely on the verge of being Tool's most consistent album, but the rest of the album is really disappointing and misguided. Two filler tracks in a row followed by an extremely disjointed 11+ minute track made the overall effort difficult to swallow, "Right In Two" being the only song throughout the second half of the album that has any redeeming value to it.

Although 10,000 Days contains more memorable songs, this is a superior album as it's far more consistent. There are a couple of weaker tracks but this was a fantastic first effort. Things would only get better from here.

Perhaps Tool's most successful album, Aenima is certainly one of the greatest sophomore releases of all time. The grand amount of Tool masterpieces is really something to behold, even the filler tracks are worth the listen. Some tracks stand more than others but no song takes it off track. Certainly their most interesting release and a great introduction to the band.

One of the most powerful, innovative and flawless records ever produced. The sound, technicality and the sheer power of this record is truly masterful, at no point does it feel misguided and all the tracks possess their own form of brilliance. At 79 minutes, it's a great deal to take in, but it needs to be heard in one listen to take in all the atmosphere. This probably sounds very pretentious, but I consider it one of my favourite albums of all time. A MUST LISTEN, and one that requires frequent revisiting.
