not a double album? hm.

in the new revolver interview, Adam says, “we approached Alex Grey at about the same time he approached us. And he was very into doing something with us again. We talked and he had this thing called The Great Turn, and it’s basically this being that has two sides.”

 

So if it is 85 minutes, I’d guess 2 cds...

okay i'm an idiot, 85 minutes is definitely over the limit for one CD, didn't even think about that. but why do a double album if it's barely over the regular album time? idk like.....just, idk. lol

at least you get to change your avatar soon jules :duckhunt:

A lot of bands have done that. Embryonic from flaming lips fit on one cd but they made it a double album. It’s just pure speculation on my end but if the art is going to revolve around 2 sides it would further the concept by having 2 sides of the album. They generally keep their themes pretty tight. 

 

Amd I may just have to keep this avatar...

the disc and the download having two different times is very curious. How are they going to break up all these long tracks on vinyl?

 

edit: maybe the extra 10 minutes in the download is the new version of Opiate

A bunch of cheap, gimmicky plastic crap, and not even all the music on a physical format.

@usagi - ProTip - highlight the quotes and then use the "quote selected text" balloon that pops up to get that effect again.

i still had in my head "a 20 minute song plus 10 others, none under 10 minutes" so i had been expecting a double album. i dug around, in case there could be more than a disc of material (plus opiate) coming, like if the 89 minute download is totally distinct, or if there is a separate release planned for after, or maybe a puzzle that reveals additional songs.

 

Justin, from here:

Quote

Justin previously admitted they have been very "picky" about what has made it onto the track list.

Speaking in 2016, he said: "We're about 90 percent there, it's been like a crazy science project -- kind of like a petri dish.

"We've just been really picky over what we want to put on this new album and really want to come up with something completely unique.

"Plus, we have endless amounts of material to sift through, so it's just been a process... a little different from last time."

 

it looks like they boiled it down to 80 minutes. they may have some other songs they don't know what to do with. the new version of opiate is 10 minutes, and they had said they would release it, so that's a good bet for the extra 10 minutes in the download. i won't be surprised if it's just more new music, though. 

 

i found this clinic promo video. posting here for hype.

What's this about a new version of Opiate? First I've heard of it. Odd they would include something like that with a new album with this much hype.

Not at all into the album cover but it's also not surprising. It's very 90s. Looks like a trance DJ set cover actually, except for the type.

Also, screw the gimmicky packaging. Keep it simple, the 10,000 Days CD packaging was really obnoxious.

if you search youtube for "new tool opiate" you'll find it. they played it live 

 

youre right, that would be random to include. hm

if you thought that was obnoxious, maybe don’t read about the new one 🙂

 

The new opiate deserves its own release imo too. There’s supposedly a video for it as well

So isn't it time someone made a topic in the New and Upcoming Releases section? Since this is indeed releasing this month.

This is the new release thread. It’s just 7 years old.

making a separate thread would be a crime at this point, this one contains all the waiting and pathos and anguish and lols.
