Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

Interesting bit in a diary entry by King Crimson's manager: "Last September, we had everything in place for this year. Tool had invited King Crimson to tour with them as a double header in the US in June and July. We met with their manager in LA and everything was settled. Until they unfortunately c...

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

On my first show (Düsseldorf 2001) they played Eulogy, Prison Sex and Pushit. That really was some luck of the draw.

Danny is also drumming in the shadows in their video for "Democracy":



He is not playing on the record though.

Re: Tool North American Fall Tour 2019 (with Killing Joke)

I have to admit, I was not looking forward to seeing them much... and after hearing their first song that first night in LA, I didn't give them much of a chance, just walked around the arena concessions area, giving them half an ear. But the second night, I decided to give them my attention and rea...

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

US and AUS distances for seeing shows have always been mind boggling to me. I couldn't even list all live venues I've got in a 60-90 minute range, from tiny clubs to several big arenas and stadiums. During the summer tour I went to Berlin for the first time ever, after 20 years or so of going "nah, ...

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

It’s my personal opinion that a song with the complexity of 7empest is impossible to perform on a nightly basis. I couldn’t imagine how taxing that song must be to play live, let alone create and record. I mean come on. It’s difficult to listen to just trying to follow along . Imo of coarse. I mean...

Re: Tool Streaming/Remastered Versions

So difficult for me to hear. I want to, but i can't or don't understand. I flip every 5 seconds from one to another version, but i can't hear the difference. Maybe if you guys mention time frames. You can hear the difference by comparing just the first four seconds of the song on the 2019 and 2001 ...

Re: Tool Streaming/Remastered Versions

Interesting. I've made a little visual comparison (don't mind my weird way of naming the measures): reflection.png The red bits are unique to the song version. Looks like the 2019 version adds a new first drum measure, cuts the sixth original drum measure and moves everything else around a bit, incl...

I just got a shipping confirmation from jpc.de - so the special edition is in Europe at least. I've half expected to have to wait until mid September.

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

Tool and Fripp did an interview together on a 2001/2002 newsletter. Trying to find it right now...
Fripp was very british about it. I also think he would not admit feeling copied because he probably deems himself uncopyable. :)

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

The beginning/ending of 7empest sounds a whole lot like "Frame By Frame" off King Crimson's "Discipline", one of Danny's favorite albums.

If it's not a conscious tribute/citation, he must at least have rubber-stamped it during songwriting.

Re: Tool - is this their last album?

I can't imagine Tool releasing any live recordings other than meticulously selected and presented shows, i.e. a classic live album/video. The King Crimson or Metallica approach of "here's... well, everything in a kind of official bootleg/rough mix, just choose what you like" doesn't really seem to f...

I fully expect the leak to be legit - except of 7empest, which will be Yakety Sax looped for 15 minutes instead.

Re: First Fear Inoculum listen approach?

The first listening to FI (the song) has turned out to be fairly irrelevant in the bigger picture, as have the first listenings to 10,000 Days in retrospect. I usually run three 10Ks per week, during which I listen to music with a kind of heightened perception. I reckon this will be where I truly ge...

Another (German) preview, auto translation seems to be alright.
The first page is mostly fluff, the meat starts on page 2.
