Re: Best Album

Undertow is one of the best quality produced albums Tool has by far. It's got that perfect analog sound and its even sweeter listening to it on vinyl. The production quality alone makes it better than the more grainy sound of AEnima. Lateralus is Tools best album on a technical level, but with production quality and all things considered, Undertow is Tool at its core.

Re: Best Album

also sorry for the double post but.... the bass on this album is at its absolute perfection, thats one thing I had to get out in the air. I just love the deep and angry sound of the Rickenbacker 4001 Paul used, and I think one reason why Tool started sounding more "soft" or "light" is because of Justin and his Wal, which is a deeper, more trippy tone but it sounds nowhere near as fierce as the Rickenbacker. No offense to him or anything because he's a musical genius and solid bassist, but he steered the musical focus away from that deep raw angry sound Tool had in the early days

Re: Best Album

The first Tool album I listened to was Aenima. In my country, it was the first Tool album to arrive. I'm talking '98 or so, when we didn't have internet. You had to dive into record stores to find out about bands. So I kinda have my heart on it. It takes me to that time and reminds me of my own mind blowing experience.

Re: Best Album

I've recently rediscovered Undertow. I had it when it first came out, and it's amazing listening to it *cough mumble* years later how the album is a different experience. I've got utterly different feelings to the tracks, and at the same time there's that time travel throwback to when I was a teenager listening to the the first time around. Definite soft-spot for this one.
