30/08/2019; a day of huge importance. Finally, after so long, millions of people could at long last stop making the same tired jokes about waiting for the new Tool album.

the other reason the votes might be the case there are tons more that hate tool so your are going to get a ton more low votes because of that.. Most people that know of Soen like them they don't have an inbuilt hate bias that would drive the score down


That's actually a great point. Sometimes I forget how many people here give artificially low ratings to things they don't like just to lower the overall score. Soen probably isn't getting a bunch of people voting them 1/10 just because they're popular or "overrated." I still remember when the first Ne Obliviscaris album came out and the scores were so high that at a certain point the people that thought they were overrated started bombing the album with 1 scores just to bring it back to earth.

"Tons of people hate Tool"

Only 22 votes of 394 are under 6 and less than half those votes are under 4. I don't think 3 people voting a 1 constitutes a "bunch of people." (The first Ne Obliviscaris album also only has 3 votes that gave 1, from nearly 800 votes).

If that rationale was true why are the other Tool albums so much higher rated?

You also failed to factor in people that vote higher simply to inflate the rating.

This imaginary bombing is largely a fallacy outside of the occasional vote abuser, anyway. A popular album will eventually bring in the curious. A lot of those people will not find it as good as those that were looking forward to it. All the scores of this record tell me is that people do not find it as good as other Tool albums.

Excellent stuff! It's such a delight to hear some new Tool.
This album has attitude, technical proficiency, it's fresh, it's not afraid to create atmosphere, it's psychedelic, it's an honest comeback. I even loved Chocolate Chip Trip.
