It'll be a sad day when Tool stops making music. Greatest touring band since Pink Floyd

I love how this song is a prologue to Right in Two. They form to make one song!

The slow start is worth it before 3:54 when it becomes out of this world.

This song isn't bad... It takes awhile to get used to since it starts so slow. But that's the way the whole album is... It's very strange. But I've come to like it.

Because it is the project if Maynard..tha t ' s cute how you think that they sound like Puscifer ..

Love this song. Play it backwards and during the intro it says "Work Hard... Stay In School... Listen To Your Mother..." Try it! Youtube it!

Not going to lie. When I heard this song live for the first time I had an orgasm. (Maynardgasm anyone?)

Everybody shhh! Just listen to the wonder. Let the music vibrate into your body. \m/

So relaxing. And sounds like Maynard brought a little bit of pucsifer to Tool.

It sounds like techno for a sec...

This song loses so much by being out of context. When it's with the album as a whole... so much better (not saying that it's bad now).

This song is not that original or different. This is basically the 10,000 days equivalent of disposition. Disposition is superior in every way.
Report as inappropriate
I like how it progresses. It is really relaxing and it is different from other Tool songs. Tool is a diverse band, which is why they are so fun to listen to.

Wow! Maybe only 1 of the 'Features of This Track' are even close.

I'm more anxious..it' s already august!

let the next album come sometime this year. I'm anxious!

think of this song as the disposition of reflection for right in two. I personally had to listen to this one a few times, felt it was missing something. But now I love it! Pure as we begin. Ruled by will alone. Very spiritual song also. Can't wait for the new album

jeff - yep, probably my least favorite tool song.
Report as inappropriate
this album does show their progression, they are the musicians band, absolutely no one can cover this music
Report as inappropriate
Disappointed ? Wow, I can't say that... Did you see the tour? This is a natural next step in their progression, imo. It's a little more abstract toward the end, but the musicianship in this song, for instance, is unparalleled in today's music scene. The best rock bands out there today are The Melvins, Tool, and the Deftones, and not necessarily in any particular order.

I'm slightly dissappointe d with 10,000 days. Its very hard for me to listen to it all the way through. Pretty much I stop after hearing Rosetta Stoned (amazing BTW)...Its not like Aemina or Lateralus which are more diverse and interesting all the way through.
