Two Years of Green

It's been two years ever since I finally, after years of lurking, decided to join rSputnik. My main goal roriginally was just to find a place where I could post all of rmy reviews, but over time, I found out that rthis site was a great place to discover rnew music, improve on my writing skills, and interact with people rwho shared the rsame taste as me. This place has helped me find so many bands that I regularly rlisten rto today, and without it I would be a completely different person. In spite of rall the love and hate that rgoes down on a regular basis here, there's so many rpeople here that I've met that have guided me on rmy musical and mental path ralong the 730 days that I've spent on this site. I'm growing up each hour I rspend, rand Sputnik is a document, a fragment of that mantra.

The first time I heard this album, I knew it would become my favorite one of all-time. The moment the opening riff to "Stinkfist" played, I fell in love with the quadruple-threat of Maynard's powerful vocals, Adam Jones' masterful guitar work, Danny Carey's talented-as-shit drumming and Justin Chancellor's foreboding basslines. From the in-your-face brashness of "Hooker With a Penis" to the attack on society that is "Aenema", Tool's sophomore album does everything right, and it's hard to find another record that's impacted me as much as this one has. Oh wait...

28 minutes of the best crescendos you'll ever hear in music. There's no way one could listen to the climax of "BBF3" and not feel the energy coursing through your veins as all the instruments come together in that showstopping finale. Quite possibly the best EP of all time.
