Issued in a gatefold sleeve with hype sticker on shrink wrap.

This is the first official vinyl release of unknown quantity. There is a secondary version following: Tool (2) - Lateralus
Both are nearly identical in packaging, except the first issue has a duller holographic sheen. The discs differ in the following manner:
The runout information is different. This edition does not have an etched "CB" signature.
The centre areas (where centre labels would normally be) have a "handmade" look to the markings where on the other edition they contain numerous concentric circles.

250-300 copies were hand-signed by all four band members and sold through the band's website.

    quiet parts sound VERY noisy. Overall a beautiful package and design, sound is punchy as hell. Just wished it had like, 50% less noise.

      Amazing during the loud parts, doggy doo during the quiet parts. Maynard, I know you're into vinyl, if you see this, PLEASE just repress this onto black vinyl, there'd be a bloody big market for it (see below).

        I've heard my fair share of bad sounding picture discs. However, this is not one of them. Maybe I was lucky with my particular pressing, but it sounds really good. No hissing, pops or crackles.

          Oof, the picture disc gimmick really hurt this album, as others have said. During The Grudge I started hearing popping, and sure enough, every time the needle ran over the image, I'd get a pop. Disappointed, but should have listened to everyone else. If a random pop here or there doesn't bother you, go for it, but if you want a seamless audio experience, wait for a repress with traditional wax.

            Mine is literally going to be a barn find for me someday. Not sure where it went...

              Noisiest record in my fledgling collection. I have dirty beat up thrift store records that pop and crackle less than this. Essentially not worth playing.

                Why can't they just press this on some regular wax? Wish they'd quit with the picture disc gimmick already!

                  I watched someone buy this at the shop yesterday and thought, 60 Canadian for this. You poor soul.

                    I am new to collecting (though I did grow up listening to LP's since I was born in 1968). I have a possibly stupid question, but will ask it anyway! I just received this album as a gift - brand new and unsealed. Would this be the original pressing from 26 Aug 2005 or do they continue pressing new copies, similar to how they have 2nd, 3rd etc editions of books? I guess an easier way to ask would be: is my album 17 years old or is it a newly pressed version of the original release? Thanks

                      This pressing is like listening to Tool over a bowl of freshly poured Rice Krispies .
