I listened to it twice so far and I walk away feeling somewhat disappointed. Maybe its a maturation of their music but I find it less angry and less aggressive than their previous material which I really liked.

I know where you're coming from, but it grew on me very quickly. I saw the show before the album came out. I think that influenced how I felt about some of the stranger songs. This one has remained in heavy rotation for me since it came out though. It IS different for them, but I like it.

I first heard tool on a cassette tape dubbed recording of Opiate that one of my sisters friends had played for me in Jr High and left at our house. A few years went by. When Undertow came out I was in my senior year of high school and was lucky enough to get tickets to see Tool at the outdoor festival called Rockstock 94 in WA State. This was an incredible performance outdoors by Maynard. A few days later I figured out the tape was the prior album Opiate. I had listened to it many times but there was no label on it saying the artist or album so I didn’t realize it was Tool. I remember the other side of the tape had Ozzy songs recorded on it. Gotta love those unlabeled cassettes. :)

AFAIK, Maynard is the only Tool member that ever been involved in APC. I love tool. Danny is one of the best ever.

After you give A perfect Circle a spin, check out Puscifer, which is MJK's other side project.

APC has evolved over the years featuring members from a lot of different bands (NIN, Puscifer, QotS, etc...). Notably James Iha from Smashing Pumpkins. James is not on tour with them and Maynard mentioned that Iha would not be with them because he is getting ready for the Smashing Pumpkins "reunion" tour - which is already no longer the original lineup again lol because D'arcy said she still can't work with Billy Corgan.

I've seen APC twice, both times incredible shows. We had great seats with a fully unobstructed view closer to the stage and slightly above the floor crowd. Only strange thing, both times, you basically don't get to see him because he's odd that way.



Going to throw this out too. Their opening act which I'd never heard of. It is part APC and Puscifer. I was not sure what to think when they started playing, but even with their short set, I already liked them (They must have filmed Again and Again on this tour, because that is the exact stage setup we saw).

Wasn't too sure about again and again, but The End is awesome. Thanks! New band to listen to.
