    TOOL Appreciation

    I had found these videos so interesting I had to share them.

    [VIDEO]]YouTube - TOOL Primo Gradus (The secret music in Tool -Part One-)[/VIDEO]

    [VIDEO]]YouTube - TOOL: Secundus Gradus (The secret music in TOOL -Part2-)[/VIDEO]

    [VIDEO]]YouTube - TOOL Tercius Gradis -The Secret Music in Tool- Part 3[/VIDEO]

    [VIDEO]]YouTube - Tool: 10000 Days Easter Egg / Hidden Track[/VIDEO]

    The third one is my favorite.

    After listening to Lateralus, I had found TOOL fascinating and one of the few genuine "artists." I couldn't believe how much time and thought was really put into their music.

    However though, the videos I posted could be stretched a bit far and open to interpretation whether composed the music that way on purpose.

    What do mates think of this and how you view them?

    i dont really think theres anything to ANY of those videos other than some guy just streching for a link, but tool is and has been my favorite band since aniema.

    i listend to that album a million times when i was going into and after my heart surgery when i was 15 and it seemed like a soundtrack to how i was feeling in my life at the time.
    i feel 46&2 was the most significant to me at the time lyrically, what with the metamorphisis and all.

    Big surprise, they're all in D

    I'm a huge fan of Tool, but even Tool the band seems to hate fans that get this obsessed. They like people getting into the meaning of the lyrics, and they definitely hide some stuff, but this stuff is all coincidence.

    Some of it definitely sounds cool, but it's nothing more than a remix done by a fan, and nothing intentional by the band beyond the fact that there are absolutely recurring musical themes in that album, which is what makes it sound cohesive.

    I also love the fact that a song that warns of the dangers of overanalyzing ("Lateralus") is the most overanalyzed song in existence.

    Yeah those are definitely stretching things a bit. I love Tool and all but some people just take it too far

    The Lipan Conjuring thing would work as well with any other similarly abstract track, though, is the thing.

    I bookmarked this ages ago, but haven't actually tried it...

    To me, Tool's Lateralus is the most amazing piece of music ever composed
