    Fear Inoculum Thoughts

    For all of the tool fans hear, thoughts on the new album?

    I'm in quarantine until I can find the perfect time to listen to the whole thing with 100% attention. Do you know if it is available on physical CD in a standard (not limited) edition? I've only seen the limited edition for sale online.

    Druid- I'm in the same boat. Got my deluxe CD in the mail and the packaging is REMARKABLE. Waiting till tonight to listen to it uninterrupted with headphones.

    Do you know if the deluxe CD is the only option? It's sold out everywhere, unless I want to pay $170 or more. I don't see a standard packaging option anywhere.

    Druid-
    I've heard nothing of the sort. Bought the deluxe for $40 and honestly, I'm glad I did. I don't see why they wouldn't but TOOL has always been unpredictable. Wishing you luck in obtaining a CD at a realistic price.

    Been listening to it for days. Blasting in my ears when I saw this actually. Worth the wait and gets better each listen. I did delete the digital version intermissions though - never had much patience for those

    It's decent. Not their best, but worthy of many listens. I personally feel like Fear Inoculum is the weakest song on the album. The rest are far better.

    My biggest issue with the album are the intermission tracks (I feel they are pointless) and the fact that the entire album doesn't seem to veer off of the same tempo, thus making the album 'drag' a little. As individual songs, they are pretty good. I realize this is only my opinion, though. Die hard Tool fans will probably love this album. Since I'm not a die hard fan, I only like it. Culling Voices and 7empest are my favorite tracks.

    On iTunes - I just held the track until an option to remove it came up. I may add them back later (show complete album becomes an option to redownload deleted tracks), but for now I just want the songs

    Everyone has their different tastes. I will say, this is not an album you can half listen to (meaning being distracted). If you walk or hike or just chill in the car, blast it and listen. There is so much going on and the songs are so long, it can take a few listens to get it all. The last few minutes of each are usually the cement too
