As with everything in Tool's oeuvre, 10,000 Days packs enough beauty, heartache and triumph that it will be dissected, studied and envied by younger bands for years to come. [Jul 2006, p.196]
"Progressive" doesn’t mean clocking in at over seven minutes no matter what. It doesn’t mean hitting every goddamn skin, tom-tom, and cowbell on your drum set. Being "Progressive" doesn’t justify an album cover that looks like a stoner stumbled upon a documentary on Mayan civilization. I’m not sure, but I think "Progressive" is about growth and change.
MattOMay 1, 2008It's safe to say that most of these critics probably spend too much time judging the "quality" and "ability" of several genres; in doing so, I think they somewhat lose their perception on what is inspirational. Songs aren't meant to be a "ballad of the moment." Songs are supposed to move people, motivating them to become something more than themselves. If you ask me, the critics are all on pot, not the listeners. They are on something else entirely. One of my favorite albums of all time, and I've listened to far too many different genres, from Kenny Rogers' "First Edition" to "all the damn Li'l's in rap music today."… Expand

JhonatanYOct 19, 2006Me parece uno de los mejores discos que he escuchado, demuestran toda la madurez de la banda, recuerdese que es un disco que busca reunir a los fans se trata de una obra de gran valia que va mas alla del Lateralus, tiene temas pesados como melodicos como "Vicarious", "The Pot", regoge lo oscuro del "AEnema" con "Rosetta Stoned" y uno de los mejores temas de TOOL : "10000 Days" and "wings for Marie".… Expand
AndrePMay 2, 2006Obviously Stylus Magazine doesn't know what the words "Progressive Rock" mean. And the writer from Pitchfork has never listed to A Perfect Circle. The "wannabe-journalists" that wrote those great pieces probably enjoy listening to Nickelback. Great album as usual, Tool always surpases expectations. A little too much "Intermission style" songs, but that is always expected from Tool. But Vicarious, Jambi, The Pot, Rosetta Stoned, 10,000 Days...amazing songs. Go buy this album IMMEDIATELY, otherwise, you'll end up being a Nickelback fan, or an opinianated "journalist". And you wouldn't want to end up like that, would you?… Expand
JohannSJun 7, 2006Great album.
SergioCMay 16, 2006Well... at last 10000Days! I'm a total fan of Tool, but I must confess that I'm a little disapointed with this new album. After 6years, we should receive a much more that what we can find on 10000days. Well, 'course the masterpiece "Lateralus" is an hard thing to beat, but I'm shure they could have done much more. In my opinion, 10000Days's a bad album,with 5 very good songs.The problem is that we can find a lot of what I call "Crap Songs"...or that songs that are good to create the feeling around the total album(wind bloowing, sound of waves, other sounds and paranoias).But when 4 or 5 tracks are just this....well, it sucks. So I can only say that if instead those 5 "crap Tracks", we could find 5real music, this album would be great. And well, 6years, it's time enough to make an album with at least 10fucking songs. Notice that's the only problem of 10000...being an album with only 5musics! "Vicarious"; "10000Days Part.2"; "Right in Two"; and "The Pot" are masterpieces.... Well...after all, we're talking about one of the greatest bands on Earth... Rock On...… Expand
BillTMay 2, 2006More mastubatory tripe from every internet nerd's favorite band. Nothing particularly interesting except for the new level of pretentious attained by Maynard James Keenan. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking this rehash is "deep".… Expand
