    I wonder if any critics would abscond their original negative reviews of this revelation committed to tablet? Now that it has punched them in their solar plexus, would they now cling to it as gospel, while facing down the demonic face of death?

    Listened on headphones for the first time - quite the experience and certainly a different way to hear the album. I quite liked it, picked up more details, especially from Danny with lots of little percussive accents bouncing around the soundfield.

    Really LOVE this album!

    I recently picked up an unauthorized vinyl pressing and am stunned by 1. how good of a pressing this is and 2. It sounds great on top. Very pleased. This pressing easily beats anything from Rainbow, United, Nashville & GZ. Although GZ seems to be getting much better of late.

    Still waiting for the vinyl. What is up with these assholes?

    St. Troy It feels superior.

    The great thing about this "statement followed by question" post is that we could substitute so many statements for the one here without changing the question (this band does much inexplicable sh!t).

    The Lateralus vinyl wasn’t released until, what, 5 or 6 years after the album came out on CD? And they’ve never done an official 10,000 Days release.

    doubt you'd say that to their face.. and why such an air of entitlement? Everyone thinks that would be nice, but ya know.. it is what it is... they don't owe you anything.

    *Disclosure on my statement, I have posted about the frustration at the cost of the Cd (outside of the US, it is around $100 in local currency)

    I am listening to FI again now for the first time in a few months, and MAN what an album this is! Album of the decade! I get that spine-tingling chill frequently, which I know means I am having a visceral, emotional reaction to brilliant art. AMAZING.

    I'm dying for a vinyl release too but seriously you guys not listening to it are depriving yourselves of a great experience. FI is a stunner from start to finish.

    FFS even Iron Maiden released The Book Of Souls on vinyl...3 LPs...and it sold. I can't understand why they won't issue FI on vinyl and then re-release their catalog on vinyl. If they truly care about their fans (and I dont think they do), this should be a no brainer. They haven't even released this on a non-special release CD.

    Yeah seriously, this is a brilliant album. I am a vinyl lover too, but I'm not going to deprive myself of one of the greatest albums ever recorded due to my preferred format not being available. I have the high-res files and they sound fantastic. If and when the vinyl is released, I will be the first one to buy that too.

    Those of you who are holding out for the vinyl might be in for a long wait.”Lateralus” wasn’t released on vinyl for a few years after the CD release and I’m not sure if “10,000 Days” was ever released officially on LP. You also have to consider what Tool would do with the release. It could just be a picture disc (or discs) at an incredibly large price. I can easily imagine them charging over $100 for it.

    Then again, the only ones who really know are Tool and they like to stay quiet about what they are doing.

    what happened to all these people talking about some big vinyl box set that was going to come with it's own player or something? seemed like a few people somewhere were talking about it as if it were going to happen. i figured they were talking out of their back-end....seems as though they were, haha.

    Seriously though, people should just get the download or 1 of the 2 versions of cd made and just listen to the album from one of those formats.

    100,000 Days was never put on vinyl which we all know, so why do some really think a vinyl of this album will be happening anytime soon??
    You're only wasting your own time by refusing to buy or listen to it any other way then...that's up to you though. I know it's not cool to only have these special cd packages, but that's what they've provided until who knows how long. Just buy it one way or another and enjoy :)
