And here's to you Ty, a singer, but above all a musician from California, who plays the electric guitar and the drums divinely, he’s super prolific due to his collaborations with so many bands I am not even going to mention… but I hope you will want to find out more about him after I tell you all about his latest work as a soloist with the album First Taste released August 2019.
No Virtue is a mature album, which this Canadian band from Ontario gave birth to in the US 6 years after their last EP and 10 from their debut album, Monolith.
Finally, after years of silence, on October 11th 2019, they managed to self-produce No Virtue with a more complex sound, a search for more modern and electronic melodies.
Today I am doing something I never thought I would ever do, review a current Tool record.
*First things first, I am not going to delve into the darkest reaches of this album, if I did we could spend weeks on it, so consider this the more "quick review".
Let's get the cat out of the bag straight away, shall we? I do enjoy Fear Inoculum. But... I don't love it as much as some of Tool's earlier albums. There, I've finally said what I've been thinking for almost a month now and feel so much better for it.
Now, before you light your torches and grab your pitchforks to lynch me, hear me out first please?
