Tool rocks Piccu and New York City.

Click the link for details of a Tool show in New York and rush out to your local record store and grab the new Tool cd, 10,000 Days. I have been listening to this cd since it came out and it gets better and better every time I hear it. Tool are like a metal jam band, the songs are long but never get boring. They could also be described as math rock by the myriad amount of time changes throughout each song.

I think I mentioned this in an earlier post extolling the virtues of Tool, Tool’s music is like an episode of Fox’s House. You know what every episode of House is about, a patient comes in with some unidentified illness and House’s team tries and fails at everything right up until 10 to the hour, and then they cure the patient. It happens every show, yet every show is great and different. With Tool, every song has that same sort of Tool vibe and groove, but every song is different and new. Do yourself a favor and indulge in Tool for 10,000 days.

which is better this new one or the last one you used to listen to on the treadmill? Do you still listen to Schism.

I listened to Lateralus for months at least once a day, twice on Sunday. I am listening to 10,000 Days almost as much. You can't go wrong with either one, but my new favorite is the latest cd.

Maybe I'll preview it for you if you ever come back home. I'm beginning to think that something has happened to the Toast and you are on the run.
