Such an amazing band live. Regardless of where they are playing, they ALWAYS sound phenomenal.

So many of their songs sound so same-y that I find it hard to care.

Finally, a band whose name describes the vast majority of their fan base.

That said, I think they're pretty cool.

the only reason their show is any good was the laser light show and the drugs.

Pay a load of money to watch us stand in one spot for an hour and a half while a bunch of colored lights play over us, and we play songs that were barely listenable the first time we did them. Thats the Tool live experience in a nutshell

I loved them the three times I've seen them.

Did I mention I was sober every time?

I'm surprised no one has brought dream theater into this some how. It's a requirement in every thread where tool is mentioned.

Why? Dream Theater is awful. No need to discuss them.

I don't like them either, but every Tool thread every made on MX/Sputnik has an obligatory dream theater mention.

So I figure that I'd be the one to do it this time, just to uphold tradition.

you know, you win me over more and more everyday.

i actually no longer am a tool fan. it's just getting way too fucking ridiculous with all the bullshit secret tool fanclub shit out there. between the secret decoder handshakes and 10 hour discussions on whether or not maynard was abused sexually as a child...i can't keep up

plus, i honestly do think maynard is one of the worst influences, vocally, on heavy music. and the funny thing is, i think i am completely alone in my hatred of that singer. which makes me hate him more.

I just completely ignore all that and listen to the music. Works for me.

nah it doesn't do it for me anymore, because i realized when you remove all the pseudo-intellectual bullshit and "talented musicianship" cliche, tool really has absolutely nothing to offer.

Some guy called in to a Serius (sp whatever) channel and requested Stink Fist, and then he says the DJ "and you have no idea what the makes me want to do to you."
I just thought "what an ***, he thinks he can come on to a DJ with some sick fetish because he requested a song about it?"

In summation: You're right Raayl, Tool fans are stupid.

i have some more selfish reasons for hating maynard too. networking your vocals is tough when every single instrumental metal act wants you to sound exactly like maynard.
