I've been listening to tool... since well right around they popped into the music scene and I was a little !@#$% who didn't know what he was listening to lol

but seriously; Maynard has some of the most... thought out lyrics. Very great songs with tons of meaning :o

:( Lately though I've been hearing about a lot of Tool haters D: whyyy

Heard of them when an Evans Blue song was compared to their style once, had no reason to seek them out (despite it an awesome Evans Blue song), may do so some day, typing like this because really can't be bothered to type full sentences, kthxbai.

The same ways that people can dislike any other band; people have different tastes.

I was wondering where Parabola was, but it was at the bottom so you're all set. ;)

I don't hate Tool, but I don't love them.
And although they do have good lyrics, there are better out there.

I used to really be into Tool.
I still listen to them, but not nearly as much as I used to.

Lateralus is a !@#$% amazing album though.

I'll give these guys a listen to tomorrow, since it's 00:30-ish on a school night.

Agreed on all counts. My brother's seen them in concert (lucky !@#$%). Still, a great band, and all the songs you mentioned are great, Mammy. Also, Prison Sex. Messed up song, but it's good. Also, Eulogy and H. Great songs as well. Heck, they're all great.

Long, repetetive, poor EQ'd arrangements with unnecessarily odd time signatures.

Really? I respect your opinion, but really? The songs may be long, but they need to be that long. The music itself is quite orgasmic, but with the lyrics thrown in as well, the song transcends normal music and becomes... something else entirely. And that is a very good thing. They aren't mainstream, they weren't really meant for mainstream. But the band is really awesome. While on the subject, I'm gonna briefly mention APC. Shorter songs, but still quite awesome.

I dono, I never found Tool to have particularly long songs.
I have no problems with the EQ at all.
I agree sometimes it seems like its odd time for the sake of it, but other times the odd time signatures give the songs their odd feel.

What I think throws a lot of people off is that they treat the lyrics as another instrument, they have no 'front man'.

I'm assuming you listened to schism and stopped listening... because their songs are average size bro <_<;; Theres only a couple that exceed like 5 minutes.
