Grabbed the last post out of convenience.

Has anyone here heard the radio edit of FI on the radio? I hear it on a digital sub-channel, and the rendition makes me sad because the tempo changes stink versus flowing nicely in the original. But then again, it's nice it's getting play I guess. I'm pretty sure they played the whole undoctored song initially / after release.

Is anyone hearing it on a mass media / FM channel?

I bought myself the CD for Christmas. Probably the first CD I've bought since...10,000 Days? As usual, the artwork is excellent and the audio quality is superb, as compared to the compressed, low-volume output version that's available on streaming music services.

This album is holding up very well to my ears. I'm really hoping to catch them again somewhere in 2020, to enjoy the show in a somewhat different frame of mind.

Still the greatest rock band of our lifetime, IMO.

Bought my cd pre release for the exact reasons you mentioned (compressed vs 14khz on a cd). No news on the vinyl release though and that’s the format I am most excited about even though their track record on vinyl is spotty at best. Who knows though...vinyl is outselling CDs now so it would certainly be worth their time to put some effort into the mastering/pressing.

My son bought me the album for Christmas. Really enjoy it.
I wonder if the more experimental songs are a result of their collaboration with Death Grips

In the interest of completeness, my Net of Being canvas just came home from framing and I hung it yesterday:



If you ever find me staring it at for 5 or 6 hours straight and/or licking the glass, please bring snacks or something.

Bonnaroo 2020 confirmed. Nothing says "Tool warmup act" like Miley Cyrus (assuming they're going to be on the same stage).

It's my turn tonight, when I'll see the first of their three shows here in San Diego.

Enjoy - spiral out!

My buddy who was at the Philly and AC shows with me just started a new job, which sends him to Vegas next week for their user conference.. and Tool are in town on the Friday night. Needless to say, he had to grab a ticket and move his flight home to the following day.

Well that was awesome. I even enjoyed the “shroud” around the stage. Danny did a nice tribute to Neil Peart. It looked like the other three expected him to wrap it up after Chocolate Chip Trip so they came out onto stage but he picked it back up again and went off and a photo of him and Peart together went up on the screen behind the stage. The other three just became part of the audience watching him do his thing.

Equally impressive was the tour’s fleet of trucks. (Walking from a parking structure to the venue took me across a high pedestrian bridge with a view down into the venue’s service lot.) 15 gleaming, apparently spotless and nearly identical candy apple red Freightliners with plain white trailers. Four beautiful tour buses (one for each guy, I imagine).

Edit: Photo posting is failing me at the moment.

Yeah I saw on setlist.fm that they did part of a Rush song as a tribute.

Noticed the fleet of trucks/buses outside the Wells Fargo Center in Philly but was rushing to grab an Uber and didn't stick around to get a good look.

So they announced an extended tour yesterday and one of the stops (March 9) is Spokane, WA.

I could not get travel lined up with any of the original dates so I am pumped. Mrs Skipjack also wants to see them so I’ve got that going for me as well.

Tickets for the extended dates go on sale tomorrow (Friday).
