It's very "okay." The first three songs are very good: "intolerance" "prison sex" (my fav.) and "sober" some of the songs just really drag and/or go nowhere, though. 4 degrees really suffers from a bad drum sound. it really keeps me from liking it. i haven't listened to either secret songs (disgustipated may as well be...it takes like 7 minutes for anything to happen, right?)...yet. what is funny: my first tool cd was "lateralus." this is easily their best record (you may beg to differ, but i know you're wrong ). this is the one cd i've almost considered "perfect." if ticks-n-leeches were cut from the cd, it would be perfect. astonishing, as i am a perfectionist. next was aenima, their next best (a little too inconsistent). then i got salival, which is pretty good...pretty damn good. lastly, undertow. that only leaves opiate, which i may as well not own. it's a literal "Chiasmos of Tool." (downward spiral...of quality). aenima and lateralus have great packaging. undertow's packaging is....disturbing.
