The bass in this when heard from outside my garage literally sounds like an anchor underwater swaying about back and forth. When I first heard it I found it quite fascinating

I’m a little upset that my favorite tool song isn’t on here! Especially right now. With all the insanity that is happening ...This tool song speaks to me and puts my emotions and thoughts into words...... SWIM Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see Armageddon soon. Certainly hope we will. I sure could use a vacation from this bullshit three-ring circus sideshow of freaks. Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call Phoenix The only way to fix it is to flush it all away. Any fucking time. Any fucking day. Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay. Fret for your figure And fret for your latte And fret for your lawsuit And fret for your hairpiece And fret for your Prozac And fret for your pilot And fret for your contract And fret for your car. It's a bullshit three-ring circus sideshow of freaks. Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call Phoenix The only way to fix it is to flush it all away. Any fucking time. Any fucking day. Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay. Some say a comet will fall from the sky. Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves. Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still. Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip shits. And some say the end is near. Some say we'll see Armageddon soon. Certainly hope we will I sure could use a vacation from this stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit. One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied. Learn to swim. Learn to swim. Learn to swim. 'Cause mom's gonna fix it all soon. Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to be. Learn to swim. [repeat] Fuck L Ron Hubbard And fuck all his clones. Fuck all these gun-toting Hip gangster wannabes. Learn to swim. [repeat] Fuck retro anything. Fuck your tattoos. Fuck all you junkies And fuck your short memory. Learn to swim. [repeat] Fuck smiley glad-hands With hidden agendas. Fuck these dysfunctional Insecure actresses. Learn to swim. [repeat] 'Cause I'm praying for rain I'm praying for tidal waves I wanna see the ground give way. I wanna watch it all go down. Mom, please flush it all away. I wanna see it go right in and down. I wanna watch it go right in. Watch you flush it all away. Time to bring it down again. Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. And I can't imagine why you wouldn't welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it come down. Bring it down Suck it down. Flush it down.

Adam's solo strikes me as the sound of weeping, coinciding with the lyrical content. It isn't just a 'look at me' solo, it's conveying very specific emotion. I imagine him standing atop a smoking pile in a dark vision of mankind's future if we do not reverse course, playing us off into oblivion. "Do not go easily into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light".

God the guitar work is so fucking boring
ultimadum 15 hours ago
@timmzzzz88 personally as a songwriter myself, I think metal as a genre is very creatively limiting, after all there's only so much you can do with chugging. But when you disregard all the technical stuff, the average music listening masses care about bands that can write SONGS. Regardless of what tool fans think of the main stream, I think all of us music fans love a heavy underground sound- incorporating pop song. This last tool album hasn't really gave a shit about songwriting and instead focuses on recreating what they did with 10,000 days. The guitar work is boring because there isn't a song to back it up. A great example of great guitar work by Adam Jones that supports the song is Porabola. I hope this elaborated on my thoughts.
timmzzzz88 22 hours ago
I used to say that until I learned a few tool songs. Yes if you just sit back and look at the notes, Adam is a very simple guitar player. But it kind of adds to it because there's not much to think about while playing. So then you can feel the music and Rock with it very hard. I know that is kind of a amateur answer. But at least in my opinion it holds to be true.

I submit to you my interpretation of this masterpiece by associating it with the well-known myth of Prometheus. It should be a good trip somehow. It might not be perfect, but I found that the sensations while listening were surprisingly consistent with the narrative of this myth. Be careful with the time markers, so that it makes fully sense. 0:00 After his people has been defeated, the Titan Prometheus creates men, at the request of Zeus. Slowly, he creates their bodies from earth and water. 1:13 He now breathes life into them. Men open their eyes for the first time. But very soon something goes wrong. 1:33 The beginning of the sung part is a long cry from men unto heaven, as the tone suggests. This is the most human and tragic part. Epimetheus has not fulfilled his mission to arm men like other animals, with claws, fangs, fur... They are not strong enough to survive, and deeply flawed. "This epilogue of our own fable", "This madness of our own making" Men's creations are always insufficient, even the societies they have built for themselves. "Free fall through this boundlessness", "Falling isn't flying" Men feel incomplete, lost in the vastness of a world they don't understand. "Come our end suddenly, All hail our lethargy" They try to wake up, but always end up sinking into darkness. They're on the verge of ruin again. "Lest we cease to be", "Mitigate our ruin, call us all to arms and order" They are afraid to disappear and call for help. Prometheus listens to the tale of men on the verge of sinking, he feels pity and still blames Zeus for overthrowing the Titans. 5:15 And so Prometheus decides to steal fire. He secretly enters into Olympus with the help of Athena. He takes the fire, and offers it to mankind. 5:44 Astonishment. Men see fire for the first time. They begin to use it, and gain strength and confidence. "Rise" and "Stay alive" Their complaint takes on a tone of a warrior song. 6:49 The golden age of men begins. They discover metallurgy and survive more easily. They end up dominating the animal world, their new strength is mechanical but brilliant. 8:22 Change of viewpoint : Zeus. Zeus, in his almighty calm, hears men in the distance. Their success is increasing. Could they defy the gods? How did they become so strong? He begins to watch them from Olympus. 9:29 Zeus perceives that men have fire. Who gave it to them? He looks behind him and realizes that the flame has indeed disappeared from Mount Olympus. 9:38 Zeus enters into a black anger. He searches everywhere for the culprit, among the gods, men, and finally his old enemies, the Titans. He learns that Prometheus is responsible. He hunts him down, looking for him wherever he may be. 9:57 His anger grows bigger and bigger the nearer he gets to Prometheus. Prometheus flees and hides. But there is no escaping Zeus. His escape is in vain. 10:25 Zeus knows where he is hidden. He flies towards him. Prometheus almost feels his embrace on him. He's already there. 10:34 Zeus appears in a flash before Prometheus. He throws himself upon him and strikes him savagely. Prometheus screams as he tries to protect himself, but he is not able to stand up to him and is almost beaten to death. 10:53 The punishment of Prometheus is returned. Zeus shows the Caucasus and the eagle. He will make an example of him. 11:12 Prometheus has resigned himself to his torment: but Zeus' anger is not turned away, and so he also decides to punish men. 11:51 With the help of the other gods, Zeus starts his most twisted creation : Pandora, the first woman. Each god and goddess offers a quality to the creature: Athena offers her beautiful clothes, Aphrodite the grace and beauty... and Hermes the curiosity, by order of Zeus. He also takes all the evils of the world and locks them into a box. He gives the box to Pandora and instructs her never to open it. He then offers her to men. 12:50 When the box is opened, the danger of men to the gods was at last extinguished. The golden age of men ends, and the omnipotence of Zeus is no more questioned. The title "Descending" refers to the fire brought from Mount Olympus, or to Pandora, at your discretion.

I wouldn’t say it’s shit. It’s just a different angle from them. It’s more harmonic I’d say. It’s still good work and they obviously have skill. I could see where you’re coming from if you were expecting something different though. Listen to it a few more times. It grows on you.

This is how it sounds when a parallel universe very briefly collides with ours. Oh my god... This is so majestic, so primal and raw. U can only come up with this of you live that music with every fiber of your being and of you've come to full maturity as a band. Thank you for this. Also on the same album: pneuma. What... Uh... Where do you keep finding that stuff? It's not even the only great song on the same album.

I was in Montreal in November 2019. I rented a car the 11 and I made the round trip alone in the evening just to see the concert. And this concert was just magic. I remember that as soon as I heard this song I cried directly! Even though I was alone, I was surrounded by all this energy, and it felt so damn good. This group is unique, one of the best of all time.
