Tool is one of my favourite bands and you’ll probably see songs by them featured a lot in the CDLR picks. I like to cycle through their albums until I find something I am obsessed with. Lately, this has been Wings for Marie and 10000 days (two parts to the same song.) The incredible thing about this song is the build up. It’s just like they’re telling a story about crashing through the rain and a broken man (Well, I mean, they are, but the song is called Wings for Marie so I guess it’s a woman?). All the while, you’re climbing up a mountain…and then the song reaches the climax. You break free, shake your fist to the sky, and yell to heaven “It’s time now, my time now, GIVE ME MY WINGS”. Catharsis.
CRÈME DE LA RÈME : Tool – 10000 Days (Wings Pt. 2)
It’s absolutely brilliant. If you don’t mind a kind of ominous build up (I don’t), then you will love, love, love this track, especially for the rainy weekend we’ve been having. Give it a chance, it might just become something you love.
Enjoy it, and catch you on the flip side. 😀
