Never really been a fan of Tool and that remains the case even though I caught their show at the Verizon Wireless Music Center last night. I realize that some folks think of Tool as the best band ever, but they just don’t do it for me. A couple of their songs are pretty good, but most just sound like a monotonous admixture of Megadeth and Nine Inch Nails to me. Also, the self-indulgent, 10 minute jam sessions in the middle of songs, a la Widespread, made me want to rip out the neck ring of the guy in front of me, who pretty much blocked my view of the stage for the entire show.
On the plus side, they had one of the best laser light shows I have ever seen at a concert.
