About this deal

Formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California – Tool emerged with a heavy metal sound on their first studio album, Under.

It plays quiet, every instrument is represented well in the mix and the heavy sections rip on a good system. They're still masters of odd time signatures and 10+ minute songs but other than that, it was tough to find anything that really stood out to me while listening. I recently purchased the 3 diac version (to accompany the big Beast of a package initial LP release), and my only.

But honestly I’m just glad they decided not to do stupid picture discs like they did with Lateralus.The world I am coming from - being super analytic and especially suspicious of Czech GZ pressings - was surprisingly impressed with the sound stage and pressing quality. The first official vinyl version made available was the ultra deluxe 5LP boxset, when copies signed by the band were sold exclusively at Tool shows from February 20 2022. Records housed inside a full-colour, mirror-board printed, hardcover book featuring alternate front cover artwork, extra artwork, lyrics and credits all within a full-colour, mirror-board printed hardcover slide-out box, although not advertised as a box-set. All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. The gatefold have a lot of nice images but what takes the whole down a bit is the insert, one side is a very nice artwork, the other is a sloppily produced information and lyrics sheet where the 7empest is both misspelled (Tempest) and lyrics omitted, the only reason seems lack of space .

Fear Inoculum scored well with critics with the exception of Pitchfork, which usually I take with a grain of salt because they are often critical of just about any album they review. The included art and etchings on the reverse of the albums look great but doubt it is something I would display.

The song is presented on a Blu-ray DVD that features a ground-breaking short film directed by Dominic Hailstone. DELUXE VINYL: LIMITED EDITION – Five 180 gram BLACK vinyl discs, with unique etchings on second side, in casebook with vinyl pockets and new artwork, in hard shell box. Tool members include drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, bassist Justin Chancellor and vocalist Mayna.

Digital versions have 10 songs (they include 'Litanie Contre La Peur', 'Legion Inoculant' and 'Mockingbeat', which are not included on the CD) and are slightly under 87 minutes long. The discs are packaged in a hard-shell box with new album art, and a bound casebook holding the vinyl along with new imagery not previously seen. But even still, after thirteen years of waiting for new material, Tool fans deserved a better thought out album. Thing is, you see, Tool have been away for so long now that we’d assumed them consigned to history - it’s been thirteen years since they released ' 10,000 Days', you know.Tool is a very visually driven band and I expected something a little more visually interesting to look at than what they chose for the album cover. I’m instantly transported back to 1993 and it not only stands the test of time but improves with age.
