Tool is just one of those bands that inspires crazy cult-like fandom. Or a totally indifferent shrug of the shoulders.
So what if most of the material was from 1996's AEnima? And so what if Maynard James Keenan seemed to slink away from the spotlight?
Reviewer Arielle Castillo reports that Keenan's voice is "still in album-perfect shape." Also, the music and visuals kept the fanatics screaming.
Castillo's only complaint? "The entire evening's timing went off with an almost clinical efficiency."
We'd call that a win for the Temple of Tool.
