    I almost always listed to Imagine when I listen to Plastic Ono Band. Those two are on par for me.

    Agreed on Band on the Run. Ram is great though.

    Woof. You guys! Band on the Run isn't bad by any means, but it's not on par with Ram.

    I dont even want to read it. Ive had really great listens to it and thats all I care about. Its just personal and emotional music, I dont see how reviews are valuable for much.

    The ONLY personal downside I have is that the two bonus tracks from itunes (?) are seemingly an extended ambiant outro. But obviously not part of the album proper.

    I don't think they've ever given Sigur Ros a "good" review.

    9.4. And while they haven't raved about much of the rest of the band's discography, almost all of it has been favorably reviewed.

    Also, I don't understand what's so objectionable about Cohen's Valtari review, or at least I don't understand what those of you who have posted here find objectionable about it.

    Yeah, that described how I felt about the Sigur Ros album after first listen. Trudging instrumental beauty without much development. Around a 6 or 7.

    NIN has mastered the live show. Anyone can literally walk into a NIN show and leave amazed by the experience. That is whether you are a fan or are not a fan of their music. I would say the same for Tool. Not only are their shows innovative and unique visually, but the music comes off incredibly well live. They have taking their shows to the next level. They are on Roger Water's level and their shows are truely life changing.

    I'd agree with that for NIN, but absolutely would disagree for Tool. Trent is a showman, whereas the Tool guys hide in the darkness and let their lights do the talking. When I saw Tool it felt like listening to their recordings on a really good sound system with a great light show, not a live set.

    Yes, i agree about Tool. I get that the diehards love their live shows to death, but you are not going to bring a lukewarm fan into a Tool show and find them loving it. i used to be a really huge Tool fan when i saw them and have never had the desire to go out of my way to see them again.

    But yes, NIN are insane live. I am a total Trent Reznor dork though and unabashedly love everything he does.

    Well, Tool are better on album than NIN. Ænima is flawless. I feel like you must have gotten a bunk show. The drummer is increadible live. Lateralus and Third Eye are arguably two of the greatest songs ever played live.

    I'm not sure why the video isn't synced to the vocals but because I've watch this video about a thousand times.

    I saw them during the Lateralus tour. Danny Carey is an incredible live drummer. Like Bryan said though, it SOUND amazing. I'll happily listen to Tool bootlegs. They not compelling to watch. An yes, Ænima is fantastic, used to be one of my favorite albums. I still love listening to it.

    Not arguing with most of your points, except that Tool are not the type of band to win over naysayers live, because they don't put the effort into their shows. Musically they are technically flawless and they change up and do great things with thier song, but they have no movement, no performance energy, and a singer in a heavy band has no business hiding in the back of the stage barely visible.

    EDIT: REGARDING THAT VIDEO POST: dude, most of us did not get to see Tool 20 years ago. they are a much, much, much different live band now, and have been for the past 10+ years
