    Great review ! I love this album but it is dying for a remaster ! I've always thought it sounded too compressed too to get the full experience of this album I recommend the Deluxe version with the bonus tracks and even "The End" ep they sold during their final End tour which also had unreleased tracks from 13 , which are some fantastic songs so i'm surprised they weren't originally on the final album

    I dont know if your pronunciation is shtick or how you actually speak, but how you "unapologetically pronounce Spanish because you know it is not going to get any better if you actualy tried" is approved by this Latino. Now I gotta check out the album. Didn't know he finally dropped this.

    I knew you wouldn't like this, but boy, you really ripped it apart. Oh well, i'm going to go on enjoying the hell out of it and recommending it to friends. I think it's a fresh and imaginative take on some classic sounds that is bold yet playful in its execution, and I like the experimental production. Here it comes in my autoplay again.

    'Ghost of soulja' and 'Fruits of spirit' are beast tracks, you've overlooked both. Most can't handle the meta-physical heat in Jay elec's bars. That said, It was an underwhelming album for someone of Jay-elecs quality and smothered by too much Hova, seeking to bask in the shine.

    Honestly this whole album is the best experience I've felt from an album in a long time. We don't deserve him. We don't need anything that makes sense, I think that's the point. Algorhythm, Time, To Be Beautiful, Under the Sun and The Violence are amazing.

    It depends on the person. For me some of the greatest musicians I have found were profoundly depressed it goes hand in hand with a lot of the time with musical genius in my opinion. This isn’t to say musical genius only arises out of depression of course it doesn’t. Honestly for me some of the most evocative and self-reflective music I’ve heard tends to be depressing.

    i disagree with the sound of silence, it was a great song with powerful vocals and it pays homage to the original. How the beginning is quiet and how it amps up slowly. its not like its a typical disturbed song with drop tuned guitars and rough vocals he makes it clean and seems to want the younger generation to get into the music that inspired them.

    This album is a breath of fresh air in modern music. Some people just can’t get their heads around that Tool are a progressive based band and they are going toward that more and more with each release. This album will just keep selling and selling, as it is a great album. End of story.

    Im confused--does he want them to write an in depth manifesto of their respective beliefs???? this guy's assertion that the use of various Qur'anic injunctions is depthless and gimmicky really shows how weak of an grasp he has of the religion of Islam. Specifically, he fails to understand the weight that these various injunctions have for believers and how much meaning is packed in as simple a statement such as laa ilaha ilallah. For you to dismiss them as 'not enough' is not only mad ignorant, but also really fucking offensive. also--his repeated use of the word ideology is suupper cringy. like is it not a fucking religion that gives meaning to countless peoples' everyday lives?? smh
