What is it with Tool? Maynard is always so far down in the mix I can never work out what he's saying. I had to look up the lyrics to get your point (yeah, it's exactly the same observation).
Why put such great lyrics so far down in the mix? Great playing but where's the melody? BD, sometimes you make me feel so old I wouldn't be surprised to see The Reaper walking through the door any minute now :)
