Yaaaay, finally.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Yeah.
In my opinion, the clip is well done and seems to perfectly follow the previous clip Parabola. I only regret the fact that the clip is only made with computer systems and is lack of puppets and animation technics. I miss teh puppets. :'(

Holy crap. Only, what, 18 months late? But you can see why it took so long to make.

Awesome video.

I think Adam Jones's the director for this clip (as for the older ones), so he had to supervises the realisation of it. Plus the band's other members, I suppose.

Every band tours all the time, and they usually manage to produce a video or two, sometimes before the album even comes out. Tool have managed this at least twice now.

But either way, I don't care, we have it now and it's an creepyawesome video.

Erh... Actually, I don't think so.
There are bunch of bands that stop touring for a lot of reasons (familly, breaks or whatever).
Plus the fact it depends on the clip. If you only want something that will be played on mtv (or any tv channel).


I forgot one of the most important reason to stop touring for a while : compose and repeat new stuff then time spent in studio to record it.


Anyway, yeah, it's a good video. :)

My point was that Tool have produced several high quality music videos on time several times now. Over several albums. I doubt we'll ever find out why Vicarious was delayed (Tool are a secretive band), but I seriously doubt it was because they were touring, even when directing the bulk of the work, in this case, would be done by computer techs and animators.

That touring thing was an hypothesis, so yes, maybe, maybe not.
And I think you're pretty right with this : we will probably never know why it took so much time te be made/released.

No real substance to the story line, but effects are awesome (is it just me or the little dudes that come out of the guy's eye look like giant sperms (especially when they fly into the eclipsed sun)).
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D
