    just because these bands have overlap of fans (pretty considerable overlap) doesn't make them a good comparison.

    tool and nin are completely different animals in terms of their philosophies toward making music and playing it live

    I think they are comparable because they are the best two live bands around today. Both shows are incredible. The music is played perfectly and visuals are unbelievable.

    I love both bands but prefer TOOL. Anyways its fuckin retarded to compare numer of songs played by each band on setlists since TOOL songs are significantly longer.

    I mean in some of the setlists posted Pushit (Salival) is about 15min live and Reflection is about 12min live.

    The average Tool song is about twice as long as any NIN song. I'm not voting but my opinion is this: Tool collectively > NIN. Trent Reznor individually > any one member of Tool.

    I think Tool has the better band. They are a tight and solid band that consistently puts on one of the best sounding live performances. I think NIN produces better art, shows more creativity and has taken far more chances than Tool and has mostly been successful in doing so.

    I pick NIN because I like more of their music and appreciate the quality of the material that comes from exploring new sounds.

    I love Tool, but I think NIN is a far superior live show.

    There is no live percussion experience equal to that, no. I'll take Robin over Adam on lead guitar.

    Musical preference or stage presence? Robin has that fury on stage no doubt, while Adam is stoic in his presence, which can come across as perhaps lacking 'stage presence'
    However, Adam's playing is much more creative and imaginative than one might think; he doesn't play to showcase how badass of a guitar player he is (e.g. seldom will he shred for a solo).

    For example, slide guitar on Third Eye or talk box solo on Jambi. . . I rest my case.

    both are great live, I choose NIN over Tool cuz they have a more electronic feel and I lean towards that rather than the "organic" sound of Tool, plus I dont pay $60 to watch silhouettes....flame on...also

    I love how Trent plays 800 songs in his setlist and chooses not to play Closer, that prick. On his farewell tour.

    This has nothing to do with the topic or anything, just pissed me off when I saw them.

    He played closer at the palladium as part of TDS in it's entirety. It was great.
