    many people label musicians as sellouts when its really just their music evolves or they experiment. many people i know think of tool as sellouts because the new stuff isnt quite like the old stuff

    Tool is a band with one of the greatest drummers of all time (top 5 definately). The music and lyrics really make you think (and the videos). The person above mentioned selling out. They did a song about selling out called "Hooker with a *&#!$." I think they are one of the 'genius' bands up there with Pink Floyd and Beethoven. They even use advanced math in their music which may make people smarter (have you heard that classical music can make you smarter? Tool isn't classical, but very mathematic).

    I voted fantastic because the drummer is rather amazing, and the guitar/bass players aren't too shabby either. I think the person who made the "overrated" comment is in the same reply right and wrong. The only reason a band gets overrated (i.e. Metallica) is because they were once the underground and cool thing. Then once people discover them they explode because they really are a fricken kick ass band (pending on the eye of the beholder of course, to each his own).

    But I also feel that most Tool fans don't know of a really awesome 70's/80's rock band that, in my opinion, was the Tool of its day. The band is Rush. You probably know "Tom Soywer" "Free Will", etc. The drummer in that band reminds me of Tool's drummer, really awesome drum licks. Anyhow, tool is pretty great.

    Too long exposure to their music can make me depressed, but I still like it. They are a great band!

    Anybody who does not appreciate Tool has to go and re-evaluate their perception of music.

    If music is expression then Tool is THE BEST!!!!!

    While listening to a Tool CD you WILL run the emotional gammet.

    Plus Maynard sings like a @#@$@#@$@#!$@#

    And for those that don't know who Tool are: http://www.toolband.com/

    Tool are alright. I'm not really a huge fan, but I do enjoy listening to the drummer. Maynard's voice grates on me though so I can rarely listen to an album all the way through.

    what happened

    last reply to this post is like.. years ago.... well, tool's okay, it's just that they don't get enough exposure in other countries. I like tool, & when i let my friends hear their songs, they'll say "how come we never heard these song?" ... whew!
