This album is incredible, Tool is in my opinion just about the best band of all time and this is their finest work to date.
The songs range from bittersweet somber to angelic ethereal. Each song is an absolute classic in its own right, even the interludes have their respective merits and dont grow as tiresome as most.
It is doubtless in my mind how this album won so many prestigious awards. Aside from some of Tools other works, and some `A Perfect Circle songs, no other album has made me experience the same elation and utter amazement as this.
You can probably tell from reading this review that I am enthusiastic about this album and this band, and trust me I cannot in my wildest dreams do its unique brilliance justice. If you were unsure as to whether to purchase this album do! And then purchase the rest of the albums straight after!
The best purchase I ever made, would happily pay £1,000 for this album if it were the only way to obtain it.
