Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

I think Rosetta Stoned is overrated, IMO it definately isn't the best song on the album like so many people have stated, BUT it is still an amazing song, seeing it live really impressed me and made me appreciate it much more.

If by overrated you mean Third Eye remix, then yes.

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

I don't think it's overrated at all. In fact, I think it's underrated. There are people giving it too much praise -- i.e. saying it's the best song on the record or even ever -- however. But I also believe too many people are quick to dismiss it as a disorganized, lazy mess. I don't think it's possible for this to be either of those things.

It's correct that it is not the best song on the album but it definitely, in conjunction with Lost Keys, is one of the more awesome things the band has ever done.

I think it is overrated. I try and try to listen to it, but there isn't anything there that sucks me in..its just...a mess. I never thought there would be a Tool song I dislike. Never say never.

Overrated or not, I think the lyrics are amazing -- at least, people's general interpretations of them.

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

definitely the best song on the album. not the best song they've ever done. i don't think it's overrated though...too many people hate it for it to be overrated.

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

its hard for me to say really, because i pretty much dont like the first half of the song at all, and then i find the second half to be utterly brilliant...i too picked both.
but when maynard goes into the "overwhelmed as one would be..." at the end, the music and the vocals are so amazing that, to me, music doesnt get much better than that.

Same. First half drags, then it finds its place. But it has more endings than "Return of the King". Shoulda cut it off after "overwhelmed...".

No - one of the many many many many great moments on the album.

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

Personally I don't really care for it, but I at the same times feel that it is a fantastic piece of work, so I say no it isn't overrated

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

No, I personally feel that 10,000 days(the song) is a little overrated. I'll admit i thought the song was as good as it gets when i first heard it, but now that the whole album has sunk in, I don't think there is any one song that really stands out. I still prefer almost all of Ænema to 10,000 days. But RS is not overatted, i think it's pretty origional. I've said it before and i'll say it now, Maynards lyrics at 8:30 are some of thebest i've heard from him.

Re: rosetta stoned, overrated?

Is it not personal prefrence? Some people say its the best... Some people say its the worse. So is it not over rated and under rated at the same time?
