View Full Version : Rosetta stoned vs Ticks and leeches

I'm totally digging this one. Right from the get go it takes you in ... and slams you hard.

Vocals remind me a little bit of ticks. (only a little)

Other than that it's tool.

But like ticks might be tough on the voice to do in concert. :(

this song is way better than Ticks and Leeches. Ticks is very.. redundant.
even though there is cleary reminese of H and their No Quarter cover i still think this is one of the bands best songs.

I think the Ticks comparison holds up in that both that song, and Rosetta Stoned seem to be liked by many, but are also considered to be the weakest/worst song on their respective albums by others.

I think I would compare TnL more to The Pot, just because they both have the same kinda "fuck you" vibe to them. I would also compare TnL to Hooker w/a Penis in that same regard.

I like the comparison because they are both the hardest songs to play on the albums. Ticks and Leeches for me is the hardest Tool song to play on drums and Rosetta is the most innovative. To me anyway. My vote is for Rosetta. Great perfect song in many ways.

lol, thread started 2006.

I'm sorry, I said it once and I'll say it again amongst all the tool fanboi's - Maynard just doesn't do this song good live.

adam, justin, and danny on the other hand nail it.
