    That's an estimate at best. They're currently in the recording studio which is about all anybody knows as Tool are notoriously secretive about their releases.

    There is one on the way though. :clap:

    not the most prolific band of all time, but always worth the wait.
    I also want an official dvd of all their videos (inc the ones off Lateralus).

    Quality over Quantity

    Dont think so (I've not got it) but Salival (2000) was released before Lateralus (2001).
    The Parabol/Parabola and Schism vids are just great. :clap:

    Lateralus or Aenima would be my suggestion, but to be honest they are all outstanding :thumbsup:

    Aenema to start with (try and get the cool holographic cover which will look cool even against your copy of The Raven!) and then Lateralus would be my recommendation. :)

    Brilliant, brilliant band

    With the exception of Opiate, I got them as they were released;
    Undertow, then Aenima, then Lateralus.
    The wait between each was long, but each album gets better over time.

    Personally I found Undertow easier to 'get into' as it has more 'conventional' shorter songs (sober, 4 degrees, crawl away). also it was the first one I bought (based on the strength of the single 'sober'). Aenima was a bit of a shock after that, and took a while to 'get'.

    Aenima and Lateralus are on a different level, more expansive, and far more rewarding.
    I think Aenima has some of the best songs (Aenema, push*t, third eye, stinkfist), but the interludes can get you reaching for the skip button especially (Ions).

    Lateralus is really dense, but equally brilliant.

    All 3 have the same type of sound but a different feel, all have moments that just sound 'right'.

    I recently got my friend into Tool, he found Aenima and Lateralus easiest to get in to, he took them one song at a time as a whole album can be daunting.

    Brilliant headphone albums, lots of textures and very subtle.

    enjoy

    Undertow is great and last time i looked it was 6.99 on play so you cant go wrong, the first album i listened to was Lateralus (the whole album in one go!) i was left feeling slightly exhausted but also amazed at the album, great band, cant wait for the new CD and hopefully a tour!

    Nah, I think Aenima and then Lateralus is the order go go in - it's a natural progression to the heady levels of Lateralis which I'm listening to right now. :D

    Lateralus is definitelyone of the best headphone albums ever created. :)

    Currently listening to Undertow - very nice indeed - my first exposure, looks like Lateralus is going to be next.

    They have now released dvd singles of Schism and Parabol/parabola, both excellent videos.

    Even better news is that there is a sticker on the cover of these dvd's, which says the new album is due out Spring 2006 !!

    :clap: :clap: :clap:

    toolband says they are all coming over to Europe to promote the new record (interviews etc), with the exception of Adam (Jones) who is staying in California to direct the new video.

    Technically, 10000 is a number rather than a word... ;)

    Still looking forward to this and hoping to get a ticket for the gig in Hammersmith. :)

    This is indeed good news. I bloody love Tool, can't wait for their new album. The first album i heard was lateralus, been a fan ever since. They don't seem to be able to put a foot wrong hopefully the trend will continue (like it won't!)
    They better come and play manchester, then i'll be a very happy man

    Pedant!

    :hiya:

    only the 1 date in Hammersmith, I feel pretty cheesed off :mad:

    With titles like Rosetta Stoned and The Pot, it might be a mellow acoustic album :devil:

    I love all the Tool CD's but have to say I prefer APC by a small margin. Can't say I've been a fan long though as I only started listening to both on the recomendations of someone on here:thumbsup:
    Are there any other bands around that have a similar flavour that are worth listening to? Incubus are another personla fav but I've still not found anything to compare to APC & Tool maybe they're just unique:D

    I've only heard a few APC songs, and so be honest, they didn't have the same impact on me that Tool do. The first Tool album I bought was Undertow (in the early 90's), which I bought on the strength of Sober (and its video).
    I then bought Aenima a few years later when that came out. At first I didn't like it, and it was about 12 months before I really started to enjoy it.
    For me, the Tool material gets better with time. It take a while to get to know each track, and whenever I listen on headphones, I always hear something new. It is that depth that appeals to me.

    Although very different in style to Tool, The Mars Volta are a band who's 2 studio albums give me a similar buzz.

    The first APC album was a great great album, every song was superb, flowed really nicely, just excellent. The second APC album was awful, truly awful not even worth listening to. So I think they made one good album and it should be left at that. I went to see them as well, it wasnt that great they only played about 45 minutes which felt like abit of a con.

    Tool however :) :) :)

    I prefer the second APC album (Thirteenth Step) to the first. It seems like a far more cohesive and thought-out album to me. :)
