Fear Inoculum Tracklist:
It’s been so long since new Tool, I began to get fearful that a new album might ruin their legacy. But when they released the track Fear Inoculum, the song actually inoculated me of that fear. As a huge fan of the more progressive melodic side of Tool, this album most certainly delivers.
I'd like to hear from all of the people who gave this one star - have you had a chance to absorb it, play it multiple times and let it sink in? I'll bet there are a lot of you that have changed your minds about this album - I know for me this is one of their best albums - yes it's different from 13 years ago, but so are we all.
Wasn’t sure what to expect from this album, been a Tool fan since the 90s,It’s not really like the music they did in the beginning, if you are looking for that sound, this album might not be for you, but I still enjoyed it,I still love what they do, more instrumental, but if you have been listening to Tool ,from opiate all the way to ,Ten Thousand Days, this Album could grow on you.
This album is amazing and creative. But it lacks energy and excitement and vocals are not as energetic as before so I can see why people think it’s boring. But I can hear it all day and not be bored or excited
1. Aenima. 2. Undertow. 3. Lateralus. 4. Opiate/ Salival. 5. 10K Days. 6. Any other of Maynard’s projects: Puscifer or APC. 7. Helmet. (Though not Tool, they’re in the same mindset. Melt faces.) 8. ISIS (In a fisktank: Low Tide) 9. Russian Circles. 10. KARP or the Melvins. 11. Green Jello 12. GWAR!!!!!! 13. TAD Last and very much least: this album. Hope this helps.
Been a Tool fan since the 90’s and this...this is on my worst music ever. The album has one good song. nothing that stands out like “The Pot” or “Parabola”. This makes me said that this whole “album” is full of “filler” music.
I think 5 songs on here (out of the 6 full tracks) are in my all time top 10 TOOL tracks. Invincible doesn’t quite make the list but everything else is absolute perfection. People are calling this Lateralus B-Sides... funny because this is a more complete album in my opinion, so why would they save some of the best songs for 13 years? And the entire album has a cohesive feel and vibe about it. The entire album is very hypnotic and doesn’t flow within Lateralus. Anyway, this is absolutely album of the decade and well inside the top 2 TOOL albums of all time, and TOOL is with-zero-doubt the best musicians since the 70’s, and maybe ever. I’m so glad I was born in ‘83 and aren’t any younger! On everything.
This album from start to finish is mind blowing. A true masterpiece. You can listen to it 20 times and hear something different each time. You wouldn’t think there would be anywhere to go with a band that started out amazing, but TOOL brings it to the next level with every album.
I’m a big Tool fan and this was such a huge disappointment. The long wait and hype had nothing to do with the poor review I give to by far their most bland album. You might as well be listening to a sound machine the music is so mind numbingly boring. All the songs might as well be the same as well cause they certainly sound like they do. Don’t waste your time or money, this ones a dud.
Going to buy CD so I can touch it and lick it ! I bought one of the first CD|DVD videos with misspelled lettering freaking awesome just. Waiting to go to store to bring back the old school feeling of of going to store and owning music in a physical form .........Tool
If this album was just Fear Inoculum and Tempest it would still be one of the best albums to come out in the past 20 years. When you add the other songs as a bonus its ridicu;ous. The Riffs by Adam, Bass lines by Justin and Drums by Danny are mindblowing. Musically this is a masterpiece. Im so ready for more.
When first listening to the album, I was expecting something different. Maybe even a new direction. Because I’m a Tool fan, I didn’t give up on it and kept listening. At least 200 times now. It’s Tool! If your not a fan, keep going...you won’t like it. For the Tool fans...there is plenty of time at home To digest and enjoy it.
All the toxic people trying to deflect criticism from this album but it just feels so bland for tool. No new ideas here. Same riffs. Exactly the performance I expected from the drummer. Just bland. Not innovative.
Fear Inoculum is a staggering achievement. Tool has given us something timeless and transcendent on this album unlike anything in their catalogue. The tracks are epic in length and full of virtuosic performances. But they are full of subtlety and, yes, beauty as well — qualities that richly reward repeat listening. One can get lost in the unfolding grandeur of Descending over and over without ever exhausting its depths, or return to the crescendo of Pneuma without ever dulling to its thundering power. This is the Mt. Everest of prog rock albums: sublime, awe inspiring, and unlike anything else you’ll ever experience.
how in the world did they not win a grammy for best rock album or song ......... they should have been nominated for best album period,not just rock/metal....seriously no respect the winners of these categories are not even close. c mon give respect when due.....maynard is an amazing song writer and the whole band is like an orchestra of rock....truly have there own sound and genre much like a pink floyd or zepplin.....maybe someday they will get there do but from a true fan great job....never stop
What I appreciate most about Tool is that they have refined their sound over the last 27 years, and had the presence to mature over time. I remember tool as a Hard Rock Grunge band in the early nineties. As I have aged, so has the sound of this band and it still speaks to me. Other artists cannot do that anymore. I love Rage Against the Machine. I still rock “Bomb Track” as I roll to work as a financial advisor. Yet, hearing Zach De La Rocha’s new material is just sad. Same goes for Metallica and Alice ‘n’ Chains. Don’t get me wrong, I love those bands and they all had a profound contribution to my youth. But few bands can produce great music for 30 years and still be relevant to their original audience. Great Job Tool! I am listening to this album like I just bought the CD from a record store, popped into the stereo for the first time, and reading the lyrics from the booklet insert. It has been a while since I have done anything like that.
Ive liked Tool since they started. Most fans were still peeing in their panties while I was rocking out to em. This is not the band I liked. Not sure why they released this, there isn’t one actual song on it and it Sounds like a jam session. A bad one too that goes on forever but never goes anywhere.
I’m not fooled. Stop trying to pretend Maynard can still sing. We all get old. We all have to honest with our selves. It’s time for Maynard to be honest with him self and us. Go make your wine bruh. You can’t sing anymore.
Not the usual hard rock album. It’s not about songs it’s about the album as a whole. More like classical music in a rock version. Like it a lot. Pink Floyd only better musically and edgier.
