 I had a quick listen to the new Tool album "Fear Inoculum" and while it sounds pretty good it shows no growth whatsoever from their past work which is a bit disappointing considering the length of time it's took to release it. Any track could sit comfortably on their last couple of albums. 

There's obviously a big demand for it though as hard copies are totally sold out apart from a few chancers advertising it for ridiculous prices - I've seen it for around £200. While I'm sure I'll end up buying it I think I'll wait for the second pressing. I don't want it that much!

So sounds like it’s worth picking up then, Paul?

If you're a Tool fan then yes. For casual listeners i'd say non-essential. I think they've way under-estimated the amount they'd sell on CD/LP though which is good news for the band I guess. I read that 80,000 copies had been pressed which is pretty good going in this day and age. I imagine more copies will soon be available.

I've heard people complaining here in New Zealand that they can't get it, despite the fact that New Zealanders buy more Tool albums per capita than any other country in the world.

I shall refrain from offering any further opinion.Clown

It's on YouTube. I've never been a huge Tool fan but i have all the albums and play them occasionally. They definately forged a  unique sound all their own. The new one sounds like too little too late. I think the hype is bigger than it deserves to be honest. So many better bands out there these days and more creative .

Don't waste your money, listen here first! I'll wait to get it when it's used ;)

Sounds like it´s not worth picking up then Wink. Said by a fan of the first two albums, who think they went downhill from there.

Wow. Looks like i listened to the album on YouTube before it got taken down. 

I listened to the entire thing last night whereas before only tracks.

While it is certainly my least favortie out of the canon and hardly worth the long wait,

it's not that bad either. 

Tool is a hypnotic sort of band kind of like a metal version of German Krautrock

There are some excellent tracks on this new album but i think there are a few that are rather meh as well

Nevertheless the album will sell mass quantitites and i'll take this over Mylie Cyrus any day :D

^ LOL

Didn't mean it quite like that! I read that the new Tool album was going to knock Cyrus off top album charts.

I actually like the album but as  you probably have noticed my musical attention span is quite diverse and i don't have enough hours in my life to take in every possibl album.

The new album doesn't offer anything new to the Tool paradigm but still is an enjoyable album and those who have a major following of this band won't be disappointed. 

Personally i like to see some growth after this long of a break between albums.
