i actually rank them in order of release opiate, undertow, aenima, and lateralus....

the band just get s better as they go along really!,. EVOLVE INTO A GREATER FORM OF MUSIC.(everything from music, lyrics, to singing , gets deeper ans more layered.)....it's odd b/c usually most bands are opposite....examples (just a few)

Nah... they follow the formula of a lot of other Great bands out there.

Example

TOOL:
Opiate -   **
Undertow - ***
Aenima -   *****
Lateralus - ****

Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine: ***
Broken - ****
Downward Spiral - *****
Fragile - ***


Bands often hit a peak and then it's not that the next album isn't great, it's just that they have no way of doing better than their best.
I think Radiohead may have hit this Peak with Kid A as well, but it's hard to tell this soon.

I disagree with so much of that post

Here's something official to ease Neon's mind

Are you one of the blind few that think that Fragile is better than Downward Spiral because you're dead wrong there, my friend, dead wrong.

I can see why people think that Lateralus is better than Aenima (they're just wrong)... but NIN peaked with DS, no question about it... I mean it's the best... I mean it's the most.. I mean... ahhhh forget it!

I'd go as far as to say the Fragile is one of my top albums EVER except for the song The Big Come Down (I think that's the name).  I hate that song.

and I wouldn't have to go very far to say that Downward Spiral is one of the best albums ever...

The main problem with Fragile is (other than having some of the same problems as Lateralus) that it could have been half the album it is and therefore twice as good.  It could have been one disc of great songs instead of two discs containing great songs, good songs, okay songs, and shit songs.

and while it's still great, it's less personal... not the lyrics, the music... Downward Spiral was one man going out in the middle of the night to record bees... playing movies in the other room just to see if any great sounds jumped out at him... blowing through different brands of different broken straws to get the perfect noises...

Fragile is a bunch of guys locked in different rooms emailing eachother cool keyboard/guitar riffs... which is cool and a great album, but just not the same... and not as warm.

I started listening to Tool on Lateralus first, which I fucking loved. When I heard Aenima, I knew it was darker, but god it really is so much better. It's so much more of a kick in the ass. And with a title as great as Hooker with a Penis, you can't beat it.

Mar de Noms, that album is so good, APC's sound is incredibly unique, it really revitalizes rock with a new mood and organization. APC is great.

Eh, OK Computer is my fave.
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
