It has some great moments, but it has a tendency to get a little dry when going all the way through the disc.

I admit... I'm not a Tool fan. However, I figured I would give
this album a shot and some of the songs did impress me.
Vicarious, Jambi, 10,000 Days, The Pot and Right in Two are
pretty good songs. Some of the songs are just plain boring and
aren't worth listening to: Wings for Marie and Intension. They
make me like this album a lot less. The rest of the tracks
(Lipan Conjuring, Lost Keys and Viginti Tres) aren't really
spectacular but serve their purpose and also aren't significant
enough to really affect the rating I'm ending up giving the
album. So all in all, a decent effort but nothing spectacular.
If you're a fan of lyrics though, check this album out. I'm
going to give their other albums a shot as well, perhaps I'll
like them...

I love it! To me it seems like a good successor of Lateralus - some tracks are as ambitioned and abstract, others are less tense and and even a bit mellow, reminding of Aenima. I really like the epic of the album - tracks #3 and #4. They're really gloomy and sort of depressing - Maynard never explains the lyrics, but I'm sure they are mostly about his mother, but might also include other topics.

I think that I'll prefer this to Lateralus in the long run - somehow 10,000 Days feels more balanced to me, but it's really too early for a final verdict.
