A strange combinations of acts! Maybe thats how they justify the prices. But Tool together in a festival with Gomez is like buying toilet paper with sh**stains on it

Tool is always great live, but another album prior to another tour would be appriciated more by me.

PTF: If you are a musician, it will depress you. They're THAT good. lol.

Sure wish Tool had quit making "music" in 1997. I just dont have much respect for these guys anymore. Radio alternarock. I also dont like giving my money to a pretentious fart sniffer like maynard.

^ personally I've liked all their albums, granted the older ones are better, more aggressive; their even better live, awesome performances. Tool should do another tour with Isis, that would be f*ckin insane. Both times I've seen Tool, they've played by themselves, no opening acts, so it would be cool if they brought some other acts on the road with them.

What are you guys on about Tool releasing an album now?? It always takes them 5years. So ->; Tool will (most likely ) release a new album in 2011. Its been 5years then since 10000000000Days.
They Make an album for a year, tour it for 2 (according to Adam) and then stay in bed for 2years...
