I downloaded "The Grudge," "Pushit," "Schism," and "The Patient" from Third Eye Open.
I liked it, but I wasn't all that impressed by it. It seems like there's just too much missing. It doesn't sound... full enough.

I have Third Eye Open, and I think it is great. Some of the songs are a bit underwhelming (Hush, for instance).

You can't expect a string quartet to provide the full power of Tool, guys. Take the album for what it is, and you will see an incredibly beautiful piece of work. The best cuts are "Sober," "The Grudge," and "Aenema."

Were the electronica sounds not present, it would be a MUCH better album.

Yes, Sober is exquisite, and the latter half of Schism (from the bridge on) is as well. I'll d/l some more tomorrow. Stinkin' dial-up. *Grrrrrr*

I personally think Third Eye open sucks. The strings sound wayyy to whiny, and the power of the album is virtually nonexistent. I admit that "The Grudge", "Schism" and "Intolerance" have some merit to them.

A real tribute should be a fully fledged orchestra with compositions that are more lush.

Better yet, Tool playing alongside the orchestra.

Exactly. So just have a freaking orchestra take on the task! It makes way more sense than having six people attempting to play Tool.

Adam, did you forget how many members there are in Tool?

My opinion on Third Eye Open is between Jared's and Adam's. I think it's decent. It's nice and all but not nearly enough power.

Personally, I don't like tribute albums. For myself, they seem to detract from the original more than they add to the music. i would much rather listen to Tool play "The Grudge" than some yahoos with violins. I'm just trying to understand what it accomplishes, besides capitalizing on what a brilliant artist has made.

Can anyone begin to imagine the overwhelming intensity of a 300-piece orchestra performing right alongside Tool?!!

Think of Metallica's stint with the San Francisco Philharmonic... It was heavy, but it didn't even compare to profundity of Tool's music WITHOUT an orchestra.
I might go into cardiac arrest listening to such a thing.

I think the idea of Tool playing NEXT TO an orchestra is brilliant, it would probably add to the music, but the orchestra alone.... i'm disappointed.

Well, of course, I simply worded my sentence in accordance with the size of each entity, instead of the size of each entity's talent, please forgive me.

It gives a different take on the piece than the original work. It's just different, it's worth a listen, even if it isn't quite up to par.

I really liked Symphonic Tool...while it's nowhere near Tool playing, it provided a great sense of the dynamics of Tool's songs
