Re: Danny Carey
I don't know how people think that Tool has been on the downward slope from Aenima. In my mind Lateralus was their best album. Given that, they have only had one release since then (10k days)!
I'll admit that 10,000 days wasn't as good as Aenima and Lateralus, but it was still an awesome album. And I can't believe some people liked Opiate and Undertow better than 10,000 days.
As for the live show, I saw them two days ago in Sydney. They were nothing short of amazing - I don't know how they would have had a better live show 9 years ago.
