Tool

Tool's greatest breakthrough was to meld dark underground metal with the ambition of art rock. Although Metallica wrote their multi-sectioned, layered songs as if they were composers, they kept their musical attack ferociously at street level. Tool didn't. They embraced the artsy, bohemian preoccupations of Jane's Addiction while they simultaneously paid musical homage to the relentlessly bleak visions of grindcore, death metal, and thrash. Even with their post-punk influences, they executed their music with the aesthetic of prog rock, alternating between long, detailed instrumental interludes and lyrical rants in their songs.

Tool had a knack for conveying the strangled, oppressive angst that the alternative nation of the early '90s claimed as its own. So, Tool were able to slip into the definition of alternative rock during the post-Nirvana era, landing a slot on the third Lollapalooza tour in 1993, which helped their first full-length debut album, Undertow, rocket to platinum status. By the time the band delivered its belated follow-up, Ænima, in 1996, alternative rock had lost its grip on the mainstream of America, and Tool's audience had shaped up as essentially metal-oriented, which meant that the group and the record didn't capture as big an audience as their first album, despite debuting at number two on the charts. After a co-headlining slot with Korn on Lollapalooza '97 wrapped up, Tool remained on the road, supporting Ænima until well into the next year.

During the band's usual extended hiatus between albums, Maynard James Keenan decided to use his downtime productively by forming a side project, dubbed A Perfect Circle. The band's 2000 debut, Mer de Noms, was a surprise hit, while the ensuing tour was a sold-out success as well. With Tool breakup rumors swirling, the band put the speculation to rest by re-entering the recording studio and issuing the stopgap B-sides/DVD set Salival late the same year. Finally, May 2001 saw the release of Tool's third full-length release, Lateralus, which debuted at the number one position on the Billboard album chart and became the band's biggest hit. After the obligatory several-year sabbatical to pursue other projects, the group returned with another chart-topper, 10,000 Days, in 2006. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato, Rovi

I really don't usually care what the lyrics are saying. It's just about the music for me. The voice is just another instrument. Dig this band and always have, but I don't want to know or try to interpret the lyrics. Some might say I'm missing out, but sometimes less is more. Rage Against the Machine has lyrics I disagree with, but I like the music!

Tool is by far the finest example of post-punk progressive, angst-ridden , intelligent, dense music on the planet. Where the F**K is the next album? Been long enough. I know they're having issues with labels and lawsuits and such. Bollocks! We need Tool. Now more than ever.

Tool is the s**t plain and simple. Ive seen tool and a perfect circle several times. Mjk is a very complex man and his lyrics are very poetic. Of course i have my interpretati o n of his songs but i wish he gave an insight of what he truly means. I geuss the lyrics are meant for an abstract interpretati o n .

Ya know I don't like country music but you won't find me hating on their artist comments. What kind of an idiot seeks out bands he hates and goes there just so you can hate on them. That makes no sense to me. So why don't you just go back to your opiate and say positive things dick.

The passion he brings to the song is amazing... Opiate is a raw version of that Passion.... Oh and it doesn't hurt to have a bad a** band to go with ya.... I mean Carey is Boss!!

I think Maynard has them beat , no offense it's just mjk transports himself into the song but the other singers are really good, listen to 3 libras. From a perfect circle or any TOOL songs they have meaning on so many levels ��

Maynard James Kennan is one of the best singers ever. He's up there with Jon Anderson, and Justin Hayward!

Why do you all fight, lets just all slowly die in peace. Keep your opinion, and someone isn't wrong for having another. No matter what they say, no one man can change the world.

Tool.. Great band.. I get carried away defending music that I consider a part of me! I was ripping someone an a**, to find out that person is 14yrs old. My point being is as long as they get a response their ignorance and insults won't stop! Im not here to make anyone cry.. Or violence against a kid.. Im guilty and im trying to change! enjoy the people who are like minded. AllisOne..

Review is rubbish- EFF "sounds like"; Maynard honed his vocal prowess as an OPERA singer BEFORE Tool, then gathered some seriously SKILLED MUSICIANS to complete the picture There is NO band to compare with Tool; they ARE the benchmark: SHUT yer fingers, ROOKIES- I have OPIATE on hellawornout C A S E T T E ; understand TRUE SKILLS and smile.
