TOOL, Fear Inoculum

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Listening now to the 24/96 download, I am very, very happy.  This is intelligent prog/metal for grownups.  If you like TOOL in their more prog ways, you will almost certainly like this.

As for the technical side, surprisingly high DR in ROON for a contemporary rock recording, it needs to be turned UP!


Oh yeah, if 7 bothers you, do not bother with this one!  (7/4 and 7/8, etc)

Hell ya it does!  Full range speakers or speakers with subs are a must.  The song Invincible Is truly epic.  It has an amazing guitar riff that starts around 6:45, it slowly morphs around and then at the 7:40 mark it completely changes, hypnotizes you, then the fun begins around the 9:35 mark. Probably the best Jam of the whole album.  Crank it up folks!


Chocolate Chip Trip is essentially a drum solo for those who appreciate percussion's.

OT: This is Tool that I personally miss - simple, straight to the point and ..stylishly dressed 9_9



The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

                                                                          ―  William Shakespeare.
