As el scotto said, it changes all the time. And I just bought Aenima so I've shifted my attention from Lateralus to Aenima. But here goes...

1. Lateralus
2. D/R/T
3. Schism
4. The Grudge
5. Ticks and Leeches

I noticed that you guys posted Disposition and the others as separate songs but I consider Disposition, Reflection, and Triad to be one song.

In no particular order...

Heh, I'm gonna cheat here, a lot of the songs I like I would considered being linked with others on the album..

D/R/T - as they were originally supposed to be one.
Parabol/a
Eon Blue Apocalypse/The Patient
The Grudge
Lateralis

..But here's a more "precise" list...

Disposition
The Patient
The Grudge
Parabola
Ticks & Leeches

This album is a little more difficult to decide, as it is be far the best one they have made (IMO). I like the sound from Aenima, but Laterlu(i?)s is much better... I also like "Faaip de Oiad" ...but then again, I like the little weird stuff they put in their albums.

- Cheers, the bringer of basses.

I can't really say that I like certain songs on the album a lot more than others, the entire album is amazing as a whole, but if I had to choose...:

1. D/R/T
2. The Grudge
3. Lateralus
4. Eon Blue Apocalypse/The Patient
5. Parabol/a

Very hard to tell...they are all increadible songs.

2. D/R/T
3. Parabola
4. The Grudge
5. Schism

Quick notes: Lateralus - best song ever. I'm not a huge fan of Ticks & Leeches. For me it actually disrupts the flow of an absolute masterpiece album.

Here we go:

1. Lateralus
2. The Patient
3. The Grudge
4. Parabola
5. Disposition

Lateralus blows the rest of the album out of the water with its Matrix factor.

Asking this question is like asking what your five favorite numbers are on a six sided die.

5.Schism

For some reason... I can never really get into Triad when I listen to D/R first... Triad is like the ONLY song on the whole album that I listen to alone... Its almost like, its disconnected from the rest of the album.. It is awesome though.

1. Reflection
2. Lateralus
3. Eon Blue Apocalypse
4. Disposition
5. The Grudge

Eon Blue is so soothing, and is a great transition between the Grudge's loud ending and the soft Patient.

Reflection seems to be the majority of the #1's here....but for lots of people here their least favorite Tool song would be better than any other song of any other band.

This is hard. Every song in Lateralus is perfect, but if i HAD to make a list:

5. Schism
4. Lateralus
3. Disposition
2. The Patient
1. Reflection

I hope in the future that Tool makes more songs that are in the same spirit as Reflection (not to take away from anything else though) i have a feeling they might.

I hope TOOL makes a completely original album for their next release.

If they wrote more like Lateralus...that would meen that they have read there press...they know what people like...they would sell out in a heart beat if they did that.

TOOL should stay completely original. Nobody should enfluence what TOOL writes.

Reflection
The Patient
The Grudge
Triad
Lateralus

for me there is a constant change between the Grudge & the Patient. though being a drummer I feel reflection would naturally take the top spot!

I very rarely listen to the album out of order...hard to rank the individual songs..
I guess Ticks and Leeches would be my next selection.

5. The Grudge

or then some other order. It's really hard to pick my favorites when all the songs are killing me with their perfection.

Hey, just a little question: Isn't "Lateralis" with an "i" just a writing error?
