Third Eye Open: The String Tribute to Tool

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
String Tribute to Tool features a number of string performers interpreting some of the esteemed heavy metal band's best-known songs. While the transition from heavy metal to strings may seem like an awkward leap in the minds of many, Tool's music makes the leap surprisingly well. It's the band's somewhat covert emphasis on dynamic song structures and progressive motifs rather than metal clichés that makes this transition seem so effortless.
