It's almost as if they sampled several of their songs together.....still good nonetheless. Danny's drumwork is nothing short of amazing, as always, but the new song sounds so much like Reflection.
Thank you for posting this I had no idea not only did they release a new album but all their past albums are now digital! I had to buy aenima at a used cd store because I lost the original from the 90s...what a band and you are right they are amazing live. This and jay z blueprint finally being released to Apple have made my ears happy!

They just slashed the prices on these at costco.
Costco sells a different, lower-end model. These are their flagship. Everyone keeps telling me these are the ones (wireless noise canceling) to get.
I tried numerous wireless noise cancelling headphones and ended up with the momentum 2 from sennheiser and couldn't be happier. Best sound quality from a over ear wireless setup I could find. Two years in still sound amazing and they have stood up to 100 plus flights.
My noise canceling headphones are strictly for flights, so I had been using BOSE QC35s for years without upgrading. Since I now have a job that involves more travel it was time to buy something wireless. My default choice was BOSE's new model, but I honestly was drawn to the build quality of B&W offering and planned on buying them. However as I toured audio/video businesses throughout the east (this is my job), everyone kept suggesting that these SONY 1000X were the best available in the category... Even guys that sell many different brands.

I get AV gear at dealer cost (or better), so if these fail to do their job adequately, I'll just buy another pair from someone else. I truly doubt that will happen though.

Please don't anyone read this as me puffing out my chest. I'm only sharing an experience in shopping for headphones in this category; and what Hi-Fi pros told me in confidence without any bias or motivation.

Managed to get my hands on the new album a little early and got a chance to listen to the 7 seven songs available on the cd only. Adam, Danny and Justin are true to form and the music is fantastic. Chocolate Chip Trip is a bit much. The second track Pneuma is fantastic! Maynards vocals are melodic, not angsty whatsoever and there wasn't a single Mayanard scream in the entirety of the album....pretty disappointing vocal-wise. Maynards vocals are surprisingly the only downside to the album. The lyrics and vocals all seemed like an afterthought. Personally I feel like Maynard has so many other things going on, that it is definitely reflected here. It basically sounds like his work with A Perfect Circle and Puscifer laid down on top of Tools music.

Oh you got Jokes this Monday!

I enjoy me some Invicta and especially Nixon watches. Love me some chunky, heavy watches. But by admission, not dropping significant $$$ on one. These bad boys do me just fine.

Tool's discography just became available in high-res, so of course I bought every album! Not sure why Tidal doesn't have them in Master quality too, but I don't mind possessing the 24/96k files.

My KEF LS50s and I are going to have a serious listening session tonight!

It always makes me smile to see a fellow Tooligan. What do you think of the new album?

I've had it since Sunday night. It's been on rotation in the car since then. It's been a crazy week though so I haven't had the opportunity to actually sit down and immerse myself in it yet. From 7-12 minute drives here and there and not being able to devote myself to an entire song beginning to end, without distraction, Pneuma and 7empest are my favorites. I'll be at work when the CD gets delivered today so I won't be able to listen to the 3 tracks not on the CD until tonight. Rumor has it that they are just segways in to the other songs. They were not included on the CD as they filled up the data that could be contained on a CD with the actual music.

Apparently this is how I got my copy.



Side note: So far there have been reports of 4 different artwork styles on the back of the new CD. Apparently some are more rare than others. The artwork itself is the same, but there are symbols overlayed that are different.

labor day special on Ebay. this exact wet tile saw at Home Depot is selling for $219 without the stand. On Ebay they have a Labor Day sale and this exact Rigid wet tile has a free stand and extra blade which would be $270. with the discount I got it for $188! this will be used to do the downstairs basement tile flooring as well as the Master Bedroom bath upgrades to the floor, bathtub and shower. and I just realized I will also use this in the upstairs bathroom when it comes time to upgrade that as well

Damn Diesel got me again. I just bought a belt from them a week or two ago, so I guess their algorithm decided to lure me in with a marketing email focused on belts and their 20% off plus free shipping Labor Day promotion. Couldn't pass up 20% off the already discounted 50% off this belt. Considering I'm a NY'er, it's no surprise I picked the black one.

I am expecting to mostly wear this one on the golf course.

Jack Daniels and I went straight through the album in a single listening session last night. Tool gets more progressive-rock as they age, but I really dig the album... Especially for the sonics. So glad to have it as part of my high-res audio collection.

7empest gave me the best first impression. It even made it into my Rock playlist in my DJ software. It was the only song that I think I'd really play at the club while girls are on stage. I'll just cue it up at 1:14 and fade out at the first break around 5:14.

Descending; Invincible; and Fear Inoculum are definitely part of my personal "liked songs" in Spotify, but they're a little too drawn out for the club.

BTW... Many of my Spotify playlists are public. Just search glennQNYC.

Needed some comfortable shoes for an upcoming business convention, so I picked a pair of these knit wingtip oxfords by Cole Haan. These have their cushy Grand.0S sole.

i'll startup the BBQ grill and we'll have steaks!

spent some time on which impacts to get. have quite a few mechanic friends and they all recommended the Milwaukee impacts. so i'll give it a try. I picked up 1/2, 3/8 and 1/4" impact drivers as well as their Hammer Drill. thought about which kind of torque wrench to get...digital or manual and I thought digital can go bad someday than what? so I went with the manual version. been watching a lot of YouTube videos on tools and man there's a lot of Snap On tool fanboys out there and I can understand why. if you're a full time mechanic you gotta have the best tools to do the job. but for someone like myself a Weekend Warrior of just doing maintenance and what not i'll spend money on tools I can justify spending money on.

All my shop guys at the plant use Milwaukee tools. We buy them whatever they need, and it's a nasty environment with aggressive chemicals.

These have lasted the longest for the abuse they get. We also have a local distributor that sells Proto I think. They seem to have pretty good stuff as well.

Lol.....I'm old. I've still got tons of Craftsman tools. Before the store closed down near me, if I ever had an issue I would take it in and they wouldn't even question me. Just tell me to get another one.
