As a long time tool fan, and after listening to Bongripper for about two years now, I can say with confidence that Bongripper is sitting at my number two spot in terms of originality and quality musicianship. Sometimes straight heavy unforgiving doom, other times a cross between psychedelic and doom.
Some really good parts on the album, but as a whole it tries to combine the styles of their previous albums and thus lacks a solid feel. I feels all over the place. This album will get them the recognition they deserve.
