Quite possibly the era’s most highly-anticipated album, Tool’s fifth album, which arrived on Aug. 30, was met by lengthy lines at retailers as music lovers clamored to get a copy of the groundbreaking, limited edition physical release. The now sold-out version features a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage (“Recusant Ad Infinitum”), charging cable, 2 watt speaker, a 36-page booklet and a digital download card. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and earned heaps of critical praise with NPR saying, “Fear Inoculum was worth the 13 year wait,” Revolver proclaiming the album “a masterpiece to be dissected for years to come” and Consequence of Sound saying the release finds “Tool in peak performance.”
