    MJK

    Without a shadow of a doubt, Maynard James Keenan has the sexiest, most beautiful voice in music.  Ever.  And Danny Carey?  That man is a beast on those drums.  All hail Danny Carey. I saw Tool live back in 2001 (I think) and my mind was blown.  It was...

    At a Loss For Words

    I love Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer.  Tool is my go to music, and has been since I was in high school, for when I'm feeling good, feeling bad or in between, there is just something about the music, lyrics, Maynard's voice that make me feel alive and/or elsewhere...

    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 ;)

    No one even knows who tool is anymore.

    . I know it takes a lot of appreciation for music to like their music but really no one even knows who they or mjk are. It's sad.

    The Greatest Band To Come Out Of The 90's

    I cannot believe it has been 20 years since the release of Opiate. I still listen to that EP alot. I love the message behind it. I cannot wait to see them this month!!!! It will be my 4th TOOL show. They are the only "arena" band I will go see

    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.

    I Am Entranced

    I love to put headphones on and just let the music carry me away. They often use interesting time signatures. I can relate to their lyrics which are about evolving as a person. Maynard James Keenan is such an expressive vocalist. Here is one of my favorites :

    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...

    Sober

    The first song and video I ever saw as a teen... and from then on, it was my mantra of sadness. Especially the words, "I want what I want." And the first video in history to bring tears to my eyes.

    A wonderful friend introduced me to Tool about 3 years ago.  I absolutely love their lyrics and their music.  I finally got to experience them live last December.  WOW!  Even better than I imagined!  My goal is to see them every year that I can!

    I can honestly say that I've loved this music from the first moment I heard it.  It is deep, honest, moving, complex, layered, fascinating, and beautiful all at once.  Every album is unique and powerful in its own way.  I saw them in concert in Columbus, Ohio...

    Genius

    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

    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.
