Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

I haven't had a chance for Rosetta Stoned to sink in that deep yet. The same thing happened to me when I first listened to Third Eye; it took ten or so listenings for it to truly sink in.

So I don't really have any ground to judge on.

What? And some of you are actually saying Rosetta Stoned? Third Eye is 10 times better. It's one of their best songs period. Rosetta Stoned is just a joke. There are some nice beats, but all in all it's just a joke.

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

tough to decide

it will take time, because third eye still sounds amazing after a decade

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

As much as I like Rosetta Stoned, I've gotta vote Third Eye - simply because the lyrics on Third Eye kick so much ass that that ass Shit the bed without maynard even saying it.

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

I can't fathom why this debate is even taking place? Comparing two distinct Tool songs is like comparing apples and oranges. They are both independent expressions and cannot be compared by content or the like. What each song means to each of us individually is what is truly important. Needless to say that I like them both quite a bit.

incohesive structure? If it sounds that way you need to lay off the beer.

Oh and Third Eye is a lot better than rosetta stoned.

How can people like Vicarious better than the grudge as well this is starting to scare me?

I don't mind people liking rosetta stoned better than third eye, but saying third eye has a stupid ( whatever ) structure scared me.

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

Third Eye. It is, and probably always will be, my favorite Tool song. When Third Eye finally hit home or me, it was indescribable (is that how you spell that...? )

I have never seen it live, and I saw Tool 4 times on the Lateralus tour, each time hoping against hope that they would play Third Eye.

I have long clung to the belief that seeing Third Eye live would write one of the final chapters in my concert experiences.

However, Rosetta Stoned is cool, does anyone else here that "Third Eye Riff" that starts about 3 minutes into it... it's almost the same, except that it loses a note with every repeat through the measure.

The short version of this is - Third Eye over RS, for me, Third Eye over anything, if anyone wants to share their experience seeing Third Eye live, please PM me. perhaps I can experience it Vicarously, because I doubt I'll ever be fortunate enough to witness it in life.

Rosetta Stoned. I've never cared for Third Eye. I agree with whoever said RS is more dynamic & powerful. It's a more fullfilling listen.

YES. its not about which song you like better. its about what you take away personally from the song

Musically Third Eye is hard to beat, but you can't compare two Tool songs. You're just gonna run yourself into a circle. They are two completely different songs.

YES!!! That part immediately reminded me of TE. There's a triplet feel in Third Eye and more of a 5/4 feel in RS....(I think). I would honestly take RS and that's only having listened maybe 10 times. I think the lyrics are amazing and it's nice and heavy (sadly enough it seems to be the heaviest song on the record).

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

Rosetta Stoned IS Third Eye. Well, Third Eye and H. And the synth from Reflection. If you add all that stuff together there's actually very little new hook material in the song at all, other than "Shit the bed" of course.

Seriously folks. What the fuck? You take a riff from one of your old songs, move it to another place on the fretboard, lop off a note so it's a nonsensical 11/8 part instead of a moderately cool 12/8 one and then play it for a couple of minutes... and the song is somehow IMPROVED?

Re: Better song - Third Eye of Rosetta Stoned?

Third Eye is quite possibly the most ingenius song ever made, closely followed by h., and Pushit, I'd say.

Rosetta Stoned is my favorite 10k Days song, though.

Very hard to choose, both are amazing songs...I'm going to side with Third Eye though. I'm sure after a few more listens though, my decision will change.

ROSETTA STONED is the new THIRD EYE. Sounds great together with LOST KEYS.
Would be great to see THIRD EYE live.
