Their efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution continued with Lateralus (2001) and 10,000 Days (2006), gaining critical acclaim and international commercial success. Their fifth studio album, Fear Inoculum, their first in thirteen years, was released on August 30, 2019 to widespread critical acclaim.

Physical Reaction/ Live Show: It sounds funny to say but for me, seeing Tool is like a spiritual experience. The power of the music, the videos playing on screens behind the band, all of the flashing lights and lasers. It's an incredible experience.
Personal notes: Tool is one of my favorite bands to see live. I would make sure you get a good spot, not necessarily up close, because you want to be able to take in the whole experience.
