New listener to tool now a forever listener
Tool leaves u wantin more? More Tool
Jones' guitar work may not be eccentricall y technical, but it is soulful and honest. He's a master, for sure
This song is pure genius!
The guitar in the beginning is simple to play but man its the coolest soundin riff
Yuppp
Best video--and I hate music video's!
Great song and album and band follow me and I'll follow back
Unfortunatel y pandora never plays two songs back to back from the same band
If u give both songs a thumbs up is only a matter of time before they play back to back lol maybe....
Sounds like a bunch of monks 800% slowed down
Maynard's voice in this song is so moving
How can you listen to parabol without parabola?
It's like musical blue balls
I love u guys
Parabol/Para b o l a and Lost Keys Blame Hoffman/Rose t t a Stoned should be complete songs on this.
Live the words

There's a licensing restriction that doesn't allow Pandora to play two tracks from the same album back-to-back . Blame the record companies, not Pandora.

My pain is an iluiuiusion ....

Parabol+Para b o l a = C o m p l e t e Song
You guys are hard to please...
i was going to comment here and complain that parabola isnt going to play next, but it looks like ive been beaten to it...
This song led me right into an ad. Darn you pandora.
chrsroc
AHHHHHHHH..i went from parabol to queen of the stone age..what the HELL
Come on, just merge Parabol and Parabola together. Quit making me go insane!
say2joe
Same goes for 10000 days -- even more so.
This entire album should be thought of as one giant song once put in it's proper order. Come on Pandora have you yet to here the holy gift? Though I did just go from this song to Pink Floyd's Hey You so it's not all bad.
retarded to have Parabol without Parabola. so stupid.
that is so true yo
Come on... you can't give me Parabol without Parabola!! Also... Parabol/Para b o l a is THE BEST Tool video to date - which is saying something.
I think it is a didgeridoo if I remember reading right. Somewhere...
Dang, left me hanging! Like foreplay with no sex!

xhange my life
Ok, I dont know who is in charge of this whole Music Genome thing, but they need to get their sh*t together. Metallica and Megadeth should never be on the same station; since when do Chili Peppers go with, uh, everything from Korn to Evanescence to Manson? And is Rammstein German for All music? Seriously? This Pandora thing is pretty cool, but seriously, some of the music that comes up is a stretch. Jet and Korn should never EVER meet. Thanks

isnt this just a slowed version of another song
I'm gonna sing this for the solo concert. It's like a talent show, but there's no winner. It's just for fun. It's like a show-off show.
Wikipedia says it's Danny Carey breathing through a tube to simulate the chanting of Buddhist monks.

Did I just hear a didgeridoo?? ?
Man...someho w , Tool makes it fit.
They're now my favorite band.
myshoesfreak n r o c k
It would be really fantastic if they played Parabol in conjunction with Parabola. Pandora, add one more vote to allow them to be played as one single, beautiful song.
man just when i think parabola is statting i get some crazy @$$ song
tool is amazing i luv this album
this is reli interesting, but reli crepy
pkdmsm
interesting
buy the album. then re-arrange the songs according to the fibonacci scale to which the entire album is written. it makes a whole lot more sense that way.
kmps_superjo e y
sucks at the end when you're waiting for parabola to start....and instead you get some whack song..... and like mhepler said.... its two separate tracks.... parabol and parabola.... kinda like wings for marie part 1 & 2.
