    Alan, I’m disappointed. We’ve been waiting seven years for a new Tool album, and next year they’re expected to deliver. C’mon man, its TOOL!

      I hope they deliver. It’s just that I’m…pessimistic.

    Tears for Fears! Even more than I might have because of the recent trend where their contemporaries have been releasing outstanding “comeback” albums. And their recent covers releases have them sounding engaged again.
