Everyone is entitled to their opinion on favorite albums, but if you don't think 10,000 Days is an amazing album i really have to question whether your opinion is valid enough for me to consider it.

I wasn't calling crow an asshole specifically, if you went back and read my post again more carefully, i said: 'one of you assholes'; there is a difference. I do not know him, and, you're right, it would be unfair to insult him in that manner. I was merely referring to the general population of users in this forum in a humorous manner. Like crow said himself: it's all in good fun, right?

There seems to be a division of fans here that talk negatively about 10,000 Days and i just wanted an in depth explanation of why this is from one of those 'assholes'. 10,000 Days is somewhat of a negative album; it almost counterbalances the whole theme of Lateralus. It's pretty much light vs. dark, life vs. death, construction vs. destruction, etc.. I personally think 10,000 Days is better in every category, but i do tend to lean towards the darkness.

Just curious is all, no harm intended... i thought you boys (girls) liked to play rough here. And i am not big on posting here, but i am no newbie to this forum FYI

I like potatoes, they go great with tuna fish, especially if they're both raw

Tool covering Yellow Submarine would be hilarious...another Beatles track would be more suitable perhaps. Tomorrow Never Knows would be interesting or maybe even George Harrison's It's All Too Much..

To be fair crow did slate 10000 days as a pile of shit after no more than a cursory listen.Maybe his opinion is a little more informed now though.

Crow, you’re a shithead.

Remember that? Asshole, shithead - same thing, really.

Say what you want. Just lurk more. You'll find I'm much less of an asshole then people at first think I am.

Not Tyson, though, that guy is a straight-up bastard.

 i would say Lateralus...Aenima..Undertow...and 10k is somewhere in their but i cant really say were. they seemed to mesh the best on Lateralus. they fit like a nice glove on that one...  10k is their best in parts in a technical crazy musiicianship kinda way but as an album it flows like crap and just feels off...for them its not that amazing...  but it does have its strong points here and their..  and opiate is fine too..just old same reason most do not mention undertow that much but thats a great album too!

Hmmm, yes - someone who has repeatedly admitted how much he loves "LATERALUS", "AENIMA" AND "UNDERTOW" should be taken literally when he says that he's only heard their last album "a few times".

By the way, genius, "once or twice" has nothing to do with "cursory". Even so, one can form a fairly solid opinion on an item of popular culture by merely consuming it once. Ever seen a movie only once and then decided that you either loved it or hated it? Wanna go listen to a pop album only once, and then tell me that that isn't enough of a chance to decide if it's a piece of shit?

I've probably heard the album about seventy-five times, truth-be-told - but that's not even the point.

Learn what words actually mean before using them, moron.
