Tool albums are very intricate they make you feel throughout the entirety of the album. Maynard has discussed this topic 100 times by now!! He doesn't want people listening to just one song in random is not the way the band should be played. If you haven't figured it out yet do yourself a favor and buy the records and listen all the way through! Apc and pucifer are not the same as tool and that's why they're on platforms such as Spotify!

I have the albums...but again...Tool was in the FM radio...so yeah, the
band can distribute their music how they see fit. I just find it a weak
argument to say they want fans to listen to albums in their entirety yet
the albums are not played as a whole on the radio.

Pandora plays random Tool songs, so that argument holds no water.

Hello Internet,

 

  I listen to music on both Pandora and Spotify's free versions, (mostly Pandora) and I have Tool on my pandora playlists. However, trying to find them on Spotify is impossible. If you are a streaming fan, this may be one where Pandora takes the cake.

Just support them and buy their cds! You can then just upload it to Spotify (:

"Tool are anti music streaming services so you won't find them on Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal and probably never will."

Tool is available on Pandora.

Maynard, or any Tool members, are you listening???? You are anti-streaming because you want people to conceptualize the album as a whole instead of the sum of its parts correct?  Yet youTube continues to stream your music at a fraction of the quality.  IF people choose to enjoy your music on a song by song basis, wouldn't you prefer that they listen at a close-to-CD level quality?  At least Spotify offers streaming at a high-quality.  I would rather hear your songs on there than the terrible compression that youTube offers any day.  Food for thought.   Forward this to Tool if you know them please.

Well, Spotify would like you to believe that they have Tool on their app. This kind of **bleep** is why I don't subscribe anymore. Total bait and switch.

Ugh, that's a tease!

 

As someone else pointed out, Maynard is a hypocrite, as they have a pretty good collection of Tool tracks on Pandora (under my Nine Inch Nails playlist). Time for him to just suck it up and take the free extra cash. Stick to his wine and stop whining... :P

That would be great but we can't get Pandora in Sweden.
