I could see people not liking this album, particularly people that really like the style of the older albums. To each their own. Fear Inoculum is the next evolution of Tool in a long progression of changes. And its amazing how far they have come.
I love introspective tool and this album feels like disposition/reflection, but for a full album. It’s a very slow burn, which again I really like and for this moment in my life, this is exactly what I want.
This is a deep and beautiful album. An album that I can put on and just sit there and think. Its like someone is messaging my brain and helping me work through the problems in my mind. That means a lot to me and I really dig it.
As far as the transition songs go, I have deleted them. They just screw with the flow of the album and its long enough as it is without having to sit through random noise in-between great tracks. My digital album now reflects the physical release, which didn't bother including them either.
Besides that, I think I love this album.
