"After 13 years it has finally arrived, Tool’s fifth and most anticipated record to date, Fear Inoculum. By the very nature and context of its release, Fear Inoculum was preemptively set to be a controversial record, regardless of it’s content. As a band with 30 years experience, it’s impossible not to have expectations for an album that’s taken nearly half of the band’s career to craft. Divorcing expectations and the overall ‘hype factor’ that comes with this record is incredibly difficult, and given its context and ambitious 90-minute length, Fear Inoculum is an album requiring numerous listens and a great deal of patience to fully realize" ( forbes)
" .The first song of the album is the title track, and it manages to kick things off to a relatively fun and pleasant start. As the only single released off the record, “Fear Inoculum” is a ‘good’ song and nice reintroduction to the band, The track shines every member on an almost equal playing field, with the only exception being Danny Carey. His drumming reigns supreme throughout the song, and even the majority of the record. Based off the first track alone, it’s also safe to say this is the best sounding Tool album in their entire discography. Every instrument is crystal clear, and they beautifully shift between dynamic levels throughout each epic composition."
