I saw Tool last night at the Viejas Arena (SDSU) in San Diego. I liked Undertow but was never a huge fan. You have to respect any band who is still touring strong after 2 decades. Their fans are diehard too! Two or three times I saw a father & son couple and even a toddle on a woman's shoulders with landing gear head phones on (ya, overboard!). The show was pretty good. The music was polished, hard rock: thumping bass lines, screeching guitar and fast drum beats. I was more impressed by the stage graphics and light show. It can really add a whole new dimension to a band's stage presence. It also fit Tool: creepy short videos with deformed beings crawling in netherworlds. The toddler must have pee-ed her pants. So if you grew up on Metallica or Nirvana, check out Tool's live show. Who knows how many years the will continue playing.

Awesome!  It's weird, I'm not the biggest fan of Tool, but I love their music videos.  Such great visuals!  So I think I would really enjoy their shows.  Apparently, I would enjoy people watching, too :P  Something tells me that you'll dig @Count_Orlok_22's list of Tool songs that rock his world.  Thanks for sharing!

Lately I've been listening to Tool more than any other band. I love their use of progressive metal, social and political commentary, intelligent and in your face lyrics, aggressive playing, and psychedelic/spiritual imagery.
