Songs of the Week: April 29, 2014



Songs: "Parabol," "Parabola"
Artist: Tool
Album: Lateralus (2001)

Swirling round with this familiar parable
Spinning, weaving round each new experience
Recognize this as a holy gift and
Celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing


Tool is a three-time Grammy Award-winning American rock band from Los Angeles, California. Although the band initially favored a heavy sound, the band's overall sound, as their more recent and notable works showcase, feature an experimental, progressive rock approach with unorthodox time signatures and complex arrangements. The band strongly emphasizes sound to relay their desired tones, emotions, and themes in each of their songs.

"Parabola," which transitions from the previous song on Lateralus, "Parabol," is one of my most favorite songs from Tool. Although the heavy sound indeed stands out, "Parabola's" lyrics pop out more - a meaningful message to enjoy life as a "holy experience;" embrace our own mortality to the fullest, and disregard all pain as they are just "illusions."
