Tracklist 1. Sweat 2. Hush 3. Part Of Me 4. Cold and Ugly (Live) 5. Jerk-Off (Live) 6. Opiate I know i'm late to the party but I finally got around to buying this album. This is also my first review. Now this entire album went far beyond my highest expectations. I was very impressed with the entire album. From the Lyrics to the Groovyness everything fits so perfect With song titles like "Jerk Off" and "Cold And Ugly," one could guess that this CD is very pissed off. That would be a safe and accurate assumption, because MJK rages throughout pretty much every song on here. "Opiate" isn't as complex as Tool's Newer Albums. It is actually more of a real, straightforward metal album than a progressive metal one. The first song, "Sweat," ties fast drumming with Maynard's catchy vocals, making for a great intro "Hush" Starts out with a very groovy bass-line and has several big, very Maynard-esque yells of "Fuck you!" Maynard later murmurs things like "go fuck yourself" and "piece of shit." "Part Of Me," opens with the type of prog-ish sounding guitar noodling that Tool would later become famous for. Although having very repetitive lyrics. it still makes for a catchy Song. Track four, "Cold And Ugly," is the first of two live songs on here, and its fast riffs, and very aggressive vocals. The other live track, "Jerk Off," is highlighted by a couple of tempo changes. I also enjoy how Maynard builds to a big, violent yell, here. Lastly, the title track "Opiate" by far the strongest song of the Album, kind of sounds like a b-side for Lateralus. And, with lyrics like "Jesus Christ, come save my life," and an extended yell of "we both want to rape you," this song is clearly the first out of many Tool songs to deal with religion and hypocrisy. The only real problem with this album is that it is quite short. There are only six songs on it, two of them are live recordings, and the songs' lengths are generally shorter than Tool's new stuff, too. But it lives up to the rest of their discography.
