Tool - Aenima

The lenticular cover is what sold me. It came with alternate cover art but I never bothered changing it in fear of ruining it. I still can’t get enough of this album even after almost 10 years.

  1. This is my single most favorite album of all time. Hands down. It’s a rare case of the packaging standing beside the music, but not compromising or eclipsing it, nor does it let it down. Much is the same with all other Tool releases. If you like the album covers, you’ll love the music.

  2. Tool is not a band, they are a way of life… but to say that if you like the album covers- you’ll love the music, makes no sense… they are 2 completely different sensory experiences.
    However if you do enjoy intensive progressive scores and angelic ballads, with actual meaning embedded in song lyrics- then you will enjoy this band… and AENIMA, their best album.

  3. One of the greatest albums of all time, and one of the greatest album cover designs of all time. You haven’t fully appreciated just how amazing this optical illusion design with the ridged jewel case is, until you’ve listened to the album on repeat, while staring at the moving eye and smoke-boxes while hallucinating on shrooms. immense.

  4. I love the artwork for this, very enigmatic. I think it was Dean Karr who did the photography, he was also the director for Manson’s Sweet Dreams video.

  5. My bad, Karr did the photography work for Undertow

  7. Definitely one of the best albums EVER!!!I’ll never get sick of it.

  8. This album cover – and the whole 3d thing – used to trip me out! GREAT ALBUM – Tool is classic! 46 & 2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

  9. this is by far their best album. Which makes sense since it was inspired by bill hicks – who was a friend of theirs – as well as homage to him, who passed away before production.

  10. Look’s even better on vinyl. http://vinylpcollector.tumblr.com/tool
