I never realised Tool (and their fans) divided people so much. It is
interesting. What's the
reason? I know little about the band, apart from the fact that the singer
seems to wind people up for some reason.
I'm agnostic about Tool. I have to be in a very particular mood to want to
hear them, but I like that
long song groovy hypnotic tricksy-rhythms thing they do. But I can't listen
to a whole album's worth of it.
And I haven't listened to them at all for years.
I remember blasting that Opiate EP and the first album back in the day, but
I don't own them
anymore so they can't have stood the test of the time. The only Tool record
I have is Lateralus,
which I think has a few amazing songs on it - Parabola and Reflection. I'm
listening to the new one
now, and see they've really gone for the stretched out hypnotic groove
thing in a big way. I quite like it.
As for KJ, kudos to Tool for getting them on the tour. I hope they get a
good pay day and can play
to a crowd that, at least some of them anyway, will be aware of KJ. And
maybe some more will
investigate KJ for the first time. Being suddenly hitched to the big story
of the day can't hurt.
