The more I listen to this song...man. 4:33 is a friggin mind blowing event. This album is by far my favorite from Tool, each listen reveals more than the last.

For me too... it's growing on me like a fucking orchid. So different, but so damn amazing. The Pot is a driving song too I find, makes me want to floor it =).

Best tool song ever. I don't care that it is kind of short and catchy. It really resonates deeply with me.

Ok DRT is better, but still this song is AMAZING.

you said it!!! 4:33!!!! Danny is the man! By laying down consistent high-hat and snare hits and that insane double kick syncopation, he straightens the feel of the rhythm from a bouncy randomness to a very definite pumping pulsation. It’s a wicked groove.

Just to be a ponce about it.....


I don't think its a Hi-Hat

Its like a very fast dampened China Cymbal. Maybe two cymbals on top of each other. Like what the guy from The Mars Volta uses

right on man, every tool album grows on you, and becomes part of you. for a lot of us, this is not just music. even though rationally, it is just music. but as you put it, moldy music.

have you heard the theories that all fungi are alien life forms?

Panspermia, I like where you guys are going with this. The music is certainly organic, and earthy. It is so real..........

you said it. every song is like a living organism, which grows and grows and grows to a crescendo and it invariably dies. no other music has that feel. this album is no exception!

tho i had reservations on maynards new voice in this song, it certainly has grown on me.. this song calls for a higher octave. and it only gets better as the song progresses.

That part is fucking amazing. The groove is so sweet and the double bass is PERFECT. Like I can't even stress how perfect that shit is. My roommate listened to it and was like "man that sounds like Slayer" but then again he also compared "Jambi" to Disturbed.

Addicting is the correct choice of words - this song is great.

I hope it doesn't wear out, but then again, I don't think it really will.

I'd say it's one of the weaker songs on the album...

Just my opinion of course...

Cool, always can respect a person who concludes with "just my opinion of course"... I do however think it's one of the strongest songs on the album (there are alot of strong songs on it). There is very much meaning in this song, and it's a really great way to get it across. I'm pretty sure they intended it that way too - this will be a huge hit in my opinion, and will probably bring Tool to a wider audience, which is a very good thing. Also love Adam's solo on this song, it's one of the better moments on the record, for me at least. Reminds me of Purple Haze a little bit - very "trippy". It is a little too reminiscent of 46&2 at points, but that's also them at their heaviest which alot of people will like. As you can tell I'm not a person who wants to keep Tool to themselves, does that matter anymore anyway lol? Society can use this, believe me it can...

First I skipped the song because of the "slow" intro, searching for another vicarious like song... but after listening with headphones and reaching the 4.30 timemark, the need for MORE volume, MORE bass, MORE... FUCKING M O R E OF THIS SONG grew exponential ... this is what I love while listening to Tool songs, you'll find diamonds everywhere if you take time to search/look for them.
So glad that there are bands like Tool on this planet, can't wait to see them live
