Ya know what is funny about Tool and other artists being "anti-streaming" is that they dont realize that the radio (FM/am) is like the original streaming music Chanel(s)...A huge difference though is that the music on the radio is bought and paid for by commercial advertising whereas sources like Spotify are paid for by us music Lovers, i.e. the fans. Tool needs to come to where we are.
As being a tool fan for years I can't even fathom their thought process on why not to stream music howerver my theory is that tool considers their music an art (which it truly is) and is intended to be listened to as a whole album. Whether you figure out the order or the overlay of some songs (wings 1 and part 2) this is what the band wants. Imagine going to an art museum and seeing only a fraction of the Mona Lisa and not being able to appreciate the whole painting. So in thinking like this why would up want to deny yourself the artful experience of these albums as a whole
Sorry Tool, but I'm not gonna haul around my big **bleep** DVD player just so I can hear your music when I go skateboarding (yes, I'm a teen, what do you want from me?). Your music is already on YouTube anyways, just put your albums on Spotify ffs so it makes it easier for us who dont want to sit through 30 second unskippable ads (youtube) when we want to hear the albums.
Funny thing is, I actually carried around My CD player boom box as a teenage just so I could listen to Tool when I was out on my skateboard... The Ænima album was part of my regimen for skateboarding and lifting in the gym...if only I still had a walkman-CD player...
In error, I thought Google Play had the Tool albums; however, I'd forgotten I'd uploaded them to my Google Music library many years ago. Spotify will let you store your library on PC an sync with your devices, but unlike Google Music you cannot upload to the cloud.
