Tool 10000 days

While the cover itself is not amazing, it’s what Tool have done with the packaging that makes it worth a mention. What better way to make a generation of people who download music to buy your CD than to make an awesome digi pack.

Tool raised the bar with digipacks by including a set of stereoscope glasses to view the accompanying artwork all painted by artist Alex Grey, who provided the artwork for Tool’s previous album Lateralus.

As no record company wants to do anything that could potentially get them sued the digipack also came with a large disclaimer warning people about the use of the glasses.
