Sub arrived. Can crank now and it was the first album I tried out. Uncalibrated, but good to hear the songs with some bass lol. Chocolate Chip Trib sounds great.

TOOL's 'Fear Inoculum' debuts number 1 on Billboard 200 chart

Remarkably, Fear Inoculum’s big debut is a now-rare example of a No. 1 album without the assistance of a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer, any sort of album pre-order/pre-sale access code promotion, or a single merchandise/album bundle -- all of which have become the norm for most major albums in recent years as artists struggle to sell albums through more old-fashioned or traditional methods.

I love this new album.

If only I could find it yet!

Those PhaseTechs I patched up just passed the "Chocolate Chip Trip" test. The more I listen to them the more I like them.

Update: They failed the "Chocolate Chip Trip" test. I blew a damn woofer. They were sounding really good too... damnit.

Damn it!!!
It’s like when your CR-250 has never run better. You know she about to blow up. lol. Ok not the same but damn that sucks.
Btw, the KAPPAS as I remember were really amazing

Yeah it sucks. I don't think your analogy is too far off the mark because the feeling is about the same. Tell you what tho, it's made me appreciate my Ultras a little more. There ain't no fukkin' way they'd blow at -5 volume in full range. They eat that poop up, ask for more and really keep their composure even getting into ridiculous volumes.

I finally picked up the CD yesterday and listened to it. I really REALLY like it. I find this work much better than APC last kick at the can.

They're only coming to Sac and LA this part of the tour, so I guess I will have to wait. I saw APC last year though :)

They're coming here soon, but the tickets are $250 for okay seats and over $500 for good seats. I'm gonna have to pass.

Oh be still my quivering heart! Can this mean what I think it means..?

Tool Has 'Tons Of Material' For Possible Follow-Up To 'Fear Inoculum', Says Danny Carey

Any fan knows not to let an off hand statement like that get us TOO excited. Tool has a history of statements like this that turn out leading nowhere, but man... Danny was the first one to start hinting at Fear Inoculum. How cool would it be to get a follow up next year! They should! We waited long enough for FI. My fingers are crossed!

I would have posted this earlier but I think I swooned...

Wonder what the sales breakdown is so far by each type of media....saw something about first week being maybe 270,000 units but didn't provide a breakdown. They seem to expect it to hold steady for the second week, tho so is this all digital downloads in the second week or are people paying the $150 at Amazon for the bundle? I see the CD at $36 at Walmart but out of stock....does Amazon have this download for sale at CD quality with their new service?
