Amazing what passes for talent these days.


Lol. As soon as you or anybody you know are capable of doing what they are, you be sure to let me know.

So you feel a band is talented if they can do something that someone who is not in a band can't do?

Yeah, real high talent bar you have there.

lol

Haha I feel a band is talented because they can do what 95% of bands can not do.

This argument is a moot point. You don't like the music, so you will say they have no talent. Most people are that way.

Nah, you're right. 15 year old overly aggressive males make up the majority of their fan base know what real music is. The rest of us are clueless.

It keeps their catalogue fresh, and if your music is going to be art and not just music, it should take you time to get your albums out. Also, Tool's sound evolves from album to album. I can confirm a new Tool album is coming soon though, I saw them live last week and one of the intermissions was a Jam sesh that was surely new material. :lurk5:

My biggest problem with Tool and Perfect Circle is they (Maynard) seem to go out of their (his) way to make the music as inpenatrable and unaccesable as they (he) possibly can. It like he thinks that its a game with the fans and if he doesn't put at least two tracks on each disc that makes people scratch their head and say WTF he has lost.

They flirt with pure genius on some tracks and then others are just total garbage.

Musicians know what real music is. The rest of you, yes, are pretty clueless.

It's the sort of general malaise that the insane lament and the genuis possess.

I get your point, and you're right. Part of Tool's success has always been their inaccesability, people want what they think they aren't supposed to have.

Sometimes I wonder if it's just a byproduct of the drug use, cuz he's on something strong. Take track 12 on Aenima for instance, it's just a baby crying, WTF, but the next track is legendary.

Either way, if it takes a couple tracks of WTF to get to the genius stuff, I'm good with that

And no actual musicians listen to them.
