Hi-Res
They’ve been the talk of the town for nearly 2 years. Early 2018, Maynard James Keenan nearly sabotaged the promotional cycle for Eat the Elephant, the 4th album of his “other main band”, A Perfect Circle, by announcing to much surprise that 10,000 Days’ successor was nearly done and that it would see the light of day at the latest in Fall 2018. Considering that 10,000 Days, the band’s 4th album, hails back to 2006 – another era entirely – even those without a shred of cynicism in their bodies joked that we’d be lucky to see the next Tool album in 2029. And yet, here we are. As a preview to the album of the same name, the epic, meandering Fear Inoculum is out. Once you get past the zen intro, complete with ting-sha cymbals, soft harmonies and a tabla, which could have set the scene for a massage parlor, Keenan’s voice comes as a remind that this relaxing atmosphere will soon subside, in favor of something much more menacing. The song could be construed as a retrospective piece, that touches upon all the different styles covered by the band since its inception in 1990. A great entrée for what looks like a very large menu. © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz

Apparently following the maxim “why make it simple when you could make it complicated”, Tool have built their album around a very elaborate calculation. Criticised by some for repeating themselves, the group mathematically prove the opposite in this confusing Lateralus. Alive 800 years ago, it was thanks to the mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci that you read that as ‘800’ and not ‘DCCC’ (he used Hindu-Arabic numerals instead of Roman numerals). He also defined the sequence that bears his name and that Tool have used for their third album. The principle is quite straightforward: except for the first two numbers, each number is found by adding up the two preceding numbers.Beyond being a mathematical breakthrough, this sequence (which is closely linked to the golden ratio) is found all over the universe, from snail shells to galaxies, as well as cyclones, pineapples and even ratios used in technical analysis of the financial market... Tool’s intelligent band members applied their passion for Fibonacci to their compositions, under the guidance of drummer Danny Carey. But you don’t have to be a genius to appreciate Tool’s enchanting music. Regardless of their unique technical complexity, each of the thirteen (a Magic Number!) solid yet nuanced tracks carry you away like waves. And each time you listen, you are swept further away from the shore and everything you thought you knew. © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz
