Unfortunately the new album is supposed to be around 85 minutes long. I hope there are some gems in there to warrant the length as even if the material is decent it’s natural that something this long can end up as a bit of a chore or snoozer.

All of their albums are 70-75 minutes long. Tool fans aren't going to complain that this one is even longer.

I’m a fan. I will complain if the quality doesn’t warrant it.

They're on every streaming service I can think of, even Soundcloud if you don't pay for streaming. Edit: Soundcloud has paid streaming now apparently.

You can buy the reissues in 24/96 "hires" if that's your thing too.

My biggest concern isn't with the length of the album, but also that there's only 7 tracks. There are 2 "transitions", so maybe those will eat up a lot of time, but that's an average of over 12 minutes a "song". When songs get to be that long, albums generally become more like ambient background noise or jam sessions than listenable albums of discernible songs.

Maybe I'm thinking too inside the box here, but I would have preferred at least a few punchier songs in the 5 minute range. That being said "Schism" is over 7 minutes long and in no way seems that long.

At least there wasn't a long gap between albums and thus the subsequent impossible to match hype that goes with it

Im not sure what to think on the vocals but overall itís a great song. The drums are killer. You know itís a banger when after 10 minutes youíre left wanting more and you immediately hit replay.

From what I have heard so far from their live performances, I think the song Invincible is going to be one of their greatest of all time. Yup I said it!

If you haven't heard it yet, check it out on youtube, it's absolutely amazing!

That definitely does make me feel a whole lot better about the album length. That 10 minute song did not feel like 10 minutes at all.

Listened to the song twice first thing in the morning on headphones and its been running through my head ever since. I'm a huge fan of Lateralus and it seems almost like a direct line to that album. Can't wait to hear this with the entire album.

yeah it really flies by. Love the percussions especially, song reminds me of "Reflection" ... and something else I can't put me finger on right now. But really solid, can't wait for the whole thing.

Good tune. Love the classic Tool drum and bass sounds. You hear a few notes and it's instantly recognizable.

Looking at the track list, Track 7 is marked with an E... hoping it's a banger along the lines of Hooker with a Penis or Ticks and Leeches. Loves me some angry MJK.


Edit: @MJK... is that what your user name is from?
