Never have I listened to a band with such intricate rifts and diverse sounds. Unique and yet somehow famaliar, Tool are a band that leave you wanting more. Lateralus contains something for everyone, from rock anthemns, impressive for their catchy lyrics (Schism being a classic example of this), to the more spiritual sounding tracks that end this brilliant masterpiece. Few bands improve the more albums they write, Korn are the empitome of this slide into commercialism, but Tool with Aenemia proved that their musical and lyrical talents grow with each passing year. Lateralus is a calming yet energetic and beautifully composed piece of art and is well worth listening to.
