    The Next Logical Step In The Progression Of Music

    I believe Tool is the next logical step in the progression of music. Their music is the only music I can listen to anymore, because nothing else compares. Once you go Tool, you can never go back. They are gods among men and their music is a gift to this world.

    It's Enlightening

    James Keenan Maynard is nothing short of genius. Every song put out by Tool is just as amazing and insightful as the last. Music has not had meaning like this since the days of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and very few will ever be anything close to what these musicians express. I...

    but tool is totally baby making music. Can't help myself but get a little wet when I hear Maynard's voice. If only a vibrator had his voice inside of it!!! Smh ;)

    Finally Have Salival

    My wonderful hubby bought me the Salival cd-booklet-dvd box set. It came in the mail today. I haven't watched it because I've got to go to work in a few minutes, but I'll be into it tonight. I can't wait. Been wanting this for YEARS and now, it's all mine.

    The music is tight, unique, heavy yet melodic. The vocals are haunting. The lyrics are deep and introspective. All in all, this band is genius. They are definitely in my top 5. I'm listening to them right now, actually. lol

    This band is litteraly the definition of

    when music becomes more Than just music. This is heavy, serious an uncanny to say the least, but so powerful it holds you like a straightjacket. Mjk's voice never fails to give me goosebumps and dannys drums are of this world. I really hope i Will see them live someday.
