This pressing does not contain printed inner sleeves or labels and has the Parental Advisory "EXPLICIT CONTENT" printed directly on the lower right corner of the front cover (i.e. NOT a sticker).

Side "d" is listed as a second side "b" on the back of the release.

Sleeve and LP labels the same as this release: Undertow.

Vastly different runouts, suggesting this has been remastered recently.This Volcano reissue uses a sleeve that still contains the Zoo logo. The label says Volcano and Tool Dissectional.
Because of that, the old Zoo Category of 72445-11052-1-RE is in small print on the back, however, the vinyl contains the new Category.

Not to be confused with later pressing Tool - Undertow which contains the exact same disc in a new sleeve altogether.

This pressing does not contain printed inner sleeves or labels and has a Parental Advisory "EXPLICIT CONTENT" sticker on the front of the vinyl jacket.

Also exists other releases of this album (Tool - Undertow and Tool - Undertow) with parental advisory "EXPLICIT LYRICS" sticker.

  • Pretty great sounding LPs, punchy as hell, with a wide holographic presentation. Thick, heavy & dense as the music is, it has terrific definition & separation, in no small part propelled by the dynamics of the pounding drums & throbbing bass. It's cut a little low, so some more volume is required, but if your hi-fi has a V-8 for an amp it is quite an incredible listen. Vinyl itself is flat & quiet on my copy. Pretty good for $16 brand-new in the shrinkwrap...

  • Was excited to find Tool on vinyl at one of my local record stores, but when I got it home to play was rather disappointed with the overall sound. While some of the earlier reviews for this release make sense, and I agree with, somehow I can't stop feeling like this was a poorly mixed version. It's just......too quiet. Surface noise was there for me as well, but not too badly.

  • Came warped and with a bit of surface noise. But overall it sounds warm and tight. It sounds pretty good to me. Very enjoyable pressing

  • Very noisy surface, off-center, warped. Not recommended.some more words here

  • Audio quality is quite nice, nice warm low end, vocals sound good, all around a very enjoyable listen. Sleeve is very basic, nothing fancy, and still contains the misprint on the back regarding side d. My matrix runouts match the ones listed here.

  • I'm undecided on this release. It's dynamic just like the CD, however it's a lot bassier. If you're rocking a rather neutral rig, the thickness will sound great. If you're already on the warm or thick side of things, it might be too much.

  • Agree with Richard. Sounds ok, but the actual presentation is poor. Rough edged to the vinyl and a bare bones sleeve.

  • Absolutely. Very disappointing presentation. It’s an expensive record, too, whenever I see it; at least $35CAD.

  • Sounds pretty good, but the usual bare minimum standard pressing by United. Dont expect a quiet pressing.
