I hope to listen to it by the end of the week though and will definitely let you know my thoughts. It is the first time I have been excited to listen to an album in a few years now.

np: Tool - Wings for Marie (Part One) / 10,000 Days (Wings Part 2)
The greatest song I have ever had the honor of listening to.

And then of course Lateralus was released 5 years later and once again I was stunned. I had searched high and low for anything musically that could compare to Aenima. Lateralus did more than compare rather it exceeded in every possible way. Technical brilliance. Remarkable polyrhythms, crazy time signatures, masterfully executed.
Five years go by and then 10,000 Days was released. And while I loved it from day one it was rather harshly received by some in the Tool community. I think some fans were so captivated by Lateralus that maybe they expected a Lateralus part two...I am not entirely sure.
Ultimately 10,000 Days is the bands most musically complex work to date. Thankfully it wasn't a Lateralus Part Two it absolutely stands on its own. It is an album of extremes. Some of the heaviest music they have made as well as some of the lightest. It isn't as complete as Lateralus from start to finish rather it meanders on its own path while still maintaining the prevailing feel and tone throughout the album.
Every album is its own experience. It is interesting to see the evolution from Opiate to 10,000 Days. Anyway that is my two cents. Peace.

Still prefer the Johnny Cash version.
I've just reacquainted myself with the excellent album A Grand Don't Come for Free by The Streets and also Original Pirate Material by the same guy. Almost as good but has a few songs I'm not so keen on.

Shows what I know.

Great, great album. It is rare for me to find an album that can enrapture me like this.
I need to listen to it a few more times, and perhaps with 10,000 Days, to get a better feel on them to comment much more, but damn, that album is powerful. 2 for 2 with Tool. I understand their first two official albums are a bit different, but I am pretty excited to get them. I just ordered them from Amazon a few minutes ago.
