|As expected. The haters and snobs who dislike Tool are bullshitting again. If you’re a fan of Tool and have heard things like “The album is very disappointing.” Or “13 years for some improv in Dm pentatonic for 90 mins.” Don’t listen.|
Fear Inoculum is absolutely fantastic and anyone who likes Tool is going to fall in love with it, so if you are shitposting about it you’re either joking or not a fan. So, here’s some advice, you might want to stop wasting your time listening to albums and bands you know full well you won’t like before you even start it and use that time to enjoy artists and groups you actually do like, or better yet, go make your own music.
As regards to Fear Inoculum, I’m hesitant to say it’s their best record to date, it could be. Let’s remember Lateralus wasn’t the holy grail of Tool upon the first listen, more like “what the fucking shit did I just experience.” Fear Inoculum is a lot like that, as far as I’m concerned (MY opinion) Lateralus is the only record still standing up to Fear Inoculum and i will have to listen many many more times before I come to a conclusion on which is better, if I come to a conclusion.
In other words (fans), don’t listen to the butthurt, wanna be music critics who are probably salty because of all the attention Tool is getting while there favourite band can only dream to support them one day, Fear Inoculum is fantastic. And that is coming from a fan of Tool, not an obsessor, or a hater. Just a casual listener.
