DeanKnight333 : A second channel called ( Lost In Tool ) where once a week, you react to a Tool track. It would be insane. You're welcome : )

grizzlednutz : Normally dislike reactors pausing a lot but you guys do this due justice and actually spend time in true analysis rather than dumb commentary. Awesome job. Respect.

Jason Shimmell : You don’t analyze Tool, Tool analyzes you.

Britton Thompson : The "shadow" refers to Carl Jung's assertion that the human mind is shaped by the subconscious & the ego; what he calls the shadow. The "46 & 2" is a reference to an upcoming evolution for humanity. Humanity's current chromosome makeup is 44 & 2, with a 46 & 2 composition meaning a more advanced consciousness has been achieved. Researchers have speculated that Jesus Christ had a 46 & 2 makeup, thus leading some to label the 46 & 2 the "God consciousness". (No, that doesn't mean we'll become equal with God; just that we'll finally be able to perceive his presence in nature) In it's simplest form, the song is about understanding what drives us—our subconscious & our ego—in order to truly advance ourselves. We all have to confront our shadows which naturally elude us before we can triumph over them and evolve to something greater.

DIGITAL MEAT : The Shadow is a concept that was formulated by the psychologist Carl Jung, it is the unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself, or the "Dark Side" of a persons personality which they choose to reject. Jung believed to truly know ones self, the shadow should be explored.

Ben Skelly : This is late, but congrats on 100,00 subscribers!

SicklessHell : React to Code Orange - "FOREVER"

Pitbull14218 : Now do, Tool - Stinkfist , that shit has crazy levels, just beautiful guitar playing. I must say, I also like Tool - Sober

Kyle Strid : Tool - The Pot

Al Grabar : The pot! React to the pot!! Tool

circle VIII : Lateralus is their best song by far. The time signatures of the chorus switch from 9/8 to 8/8 to 7/8 (the song was originally titled 987) which happens to be the 16th number of the Fibonacci sequence. The syllables from which Maynard sings the chorus are also corresponding to the Fibonacci sequence; black (1) then (1) white are (2) all I see (3) in my infancy (5) red and yellow then came to be (8) reaching out to me, (5) let's me see (3) One of the greatest pieces of music composed in our modern era :) Loudwire lists it as the number 1 best metal song of the 21st century. You guys really have to check it out!

Jason Duke : Check out "Sober" by Tool. It has that exact break that George was looking for. Haha!

Donald McCombs : Tool is an amazing band, I feel like their entire goal is to make you question reality.

Matthew Benoit : a Perfect Circle, Weak and Powerless !! Same singer from Tool ! MJK !!

Xaivier M. Sinclaire : Hey guys here is the Explanation of the song:Tool 46+2 The major underlying principles here relate to chromosomes and Jungian theory. Some of the ideas behind this song are based on the teachings of Drunvalo Melchizadek. Here's a snip of an interview with him (Leading Edge, 12/95): "There are three totally different kinds of humans on the Earth, meaning that they perceive the One reality in three different ways, interpreted differently. The first kind of human has a chromosome composition of 42+2. They comprise a unity consciousness that does not see anything outside themselves as being separate from themselves. To them, there is only one energy - one life, one beingness that moves everywhere. Anything happening anywhere is within them, as well. They are like cells in the body. They are all connected to a single consciousness that moves through all of them. These are the aboriginals in Australia. There might be a few African tribes left like this. Then, there is our level, comprising 44+2 chromosomes. We are a disharmonic level of consciousness that is used as a steppingstone from the 42+2 level to the next level, 46+2...These two additional chromosomes change everything." According to Melchezedek, our planet is covered with geometrically constructed 'morpho genetic grids'. These grids extend from about 60 feet under the Earth's surface to about 60 miles above the Earth, arranged in geometric patterns (see 'Sacred Geometry'). Each species has its own grid, which supports life, and connects the consciousness of its particular species. Before any species can come into existence or make an evolutionary step, a new grid must be completed. When a species becomes extinct, that particular species' grid dissolves. A new grid was completed in 1989 - the 'christ-consciousness' grid. This grid will allow humans to evolve into our next version. We'll develop two additional chromosomes (which are really 'geometrical images' designed to resonate with our specific grid) for a total or 46 + 2. The main change will be a shift to the "unity consciousness". Every cell in your body has its own consciousness and memory. You, the higher being that occupies your body, make the millions of different consciousnesses in your body work together as one being. How does this relate to this grid? Think of yourself as a cell and the grid as the higher being. We will still have individual consciousness, but will be united in the form of a higher being in order to work as one entity

Jeff Parker : Tool is a band that you need to just binge listen to. If you listen to all their records on a good system, it will literally download into your brain. The vampire scenario was hilarious 😂 you guys are awesome!

121jigawatts2015 : Okay guys, how about "Head Like a Hole" from Nine Inch Nails? I think you will dig it.

Ryan Auten : you should do Tool - H. my favorite song.

Steven Hernandez : Guys, this song is about Jungian psychology. The “shadow” is the repressed part of the psyche that is undeveloped and responsible for unstable behavior when stressed. When triggered, we are said to be “in the grip” of the shadow. So Maynard (the singer of Tool) is essentially saying that we grow and develop by dealing with the shadow. By processing our negative, weak side, we become stronger as people. By going through stress and turmoil, our personality becomes more developed and healthy. “Furthermore, it is believed the song references a wish to experience change through the "shadow"; an idea which represents the parts of one's identity that one hates, fears, and represses, this exists as a recurring theme in the work of Carl Jung.” (Wikipedia) “The shadow is our dark side, containing those things that we have repressed or ignored for one reason or another. It usually manifests to us in dreams as an archetypal figure who is dark and ominous. Just as the persona is that part of us that we want to present to the world, so the shadow contains those things that we want to hide from the world, and from ourselves. This dark side of ourselves must be confronted and accepted, at least in part, as the first step in the individuation process.” So, let’s just say that this song is “psychologically deep”. Because it is! Maynard is a genius, and this is probably the best psychologically insightful song I’ve ever heard. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 (Also, “46 and 2” has to do with an odd theory regarding our 46 chromosomes. But that theory is weird. It’s best to focus on the Jungian shadow concept!)

Vforven Detta : Clutch guys ! CLUTCH !

James Rodolfo : Alter Bridge-Blackbird!!! Also still no mention about the Bass intro I see I'm a guitar player but Tools bass line are amazing. The meaning is that  humans have 46 chromosomes. It is estimated and presumed that the next stage of evolution will add 2 chromosomes to our DNA, hence the title Forty Six & 2.

daniel green : Tool - Eulogy

matt karl : tool composes using golden ratio

stephanie lucas : Please do another Tool song! Jambi!

Pedro Bacelar : About time you got yourselves eye balls deep in muddy waters.. The Pot mah duudes

Brent Estvander : i just subscribed to your channel,,because of your non biased reactions to tool ,,there my fav band,,it was amazing for me too see your take on their music,,thx for viewing the world with open eyes..

Kevin Long : "They goin in" haha. Great reaction love this

Braeden Gray : You guys were on point with "The Shadow" If anyone is interested, I've heard it explained using the philosophy of Carl Jung (Shadow theory) in which he writes, "Everyone carries a shadow... and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." It may be (in part) one's link to more primitive animal instincts, which are superseded during early childhood by the conscious mind." Just an interesting read for anyone that's into that kinda stuff. Jungian psychology proposes that the deepest layers of self are the Id, anima/animus, shadow and in part the ego/superego. This is considered the unconscious mind, around which we build our exterior persona. Additionally, any gamers in the crowd may recognize the concept of the shadow from the Persona Series.

Karen Mcteer : React to Eulogy by Tool

LoonaticX : Amon Amarth - The Hero

Steven Steele : You guys gotta check out The Pot by Tool!

evan hasner : You don't need the lyrics to enjoy tool. The drums are enough as is. Guy is a madman.

Shiba : One does not simply "understand" Tool

Al Grabar : React to some chevelle to. It's a Christian band, the song the red or the clincher are very good

Webee Chamin : Amazing song and one of my favorites! I think H. By them has always been my top though. Even though a lot of people say it’s about drugs The lead singer Maynard thinks on a much deeper level and has talked about the fact that he actually wrote it about the birth of his son. Anyways, you should try that one!

WatcherOfShadows : Look up Carl Jung to understand the term "shadow".

fabio saccoccia : Gardenia by Kyuss could be another cool reactions video. Kyuss are heavy but trippy too guys. Cheers

Slowlikehoney Too : Try A Perfect Circle and see where it takes you!

Liam Johnston : Please listen to Sober by Tool!

Dylstergo : New drinking game; take a shot whenever they say fire.

Aaron A. Foster : RAMMSTEIN "Engel" live from Madison Square Garden will AMAZE you. You might need a Translation of the lyrics with you. But the lyrics are well done and the band is amazing live!

Budget Hitman : Im a fan but you guys pause at the worst possible times. You ruin the builds. This song builds to such a strong crescendo and you pause it and ruin it. I know you dont know better but...damn.

zipngo1 : Hey guys, I love the show. For an old fat white guy.... The rappin is pretty cool when you break it down. The Rock is my thing. Fun seeing younger reactions. you might be to you young but would love to see guys do a spoof ( just for fun). Check out the old " In Living color" "Men's on Books" Skits. It is worth a laugh. LoL

jakefurr122 : Otep - Confrontation

Isaac Eilers : TooL on a whole other Level playerrrrrs

Stebbi LV : Another great pick. Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name ANIMALS AS LEADERS - CAFO

Quantum Squatch : Dance club, vampire... that's where I had to hit pause... some positive feedback... why so many like this song, hhhhmmmmmmm ... well let's see .... read the lyrics and free your mind, do your research, then ponder a bit, then some more... then you'll know how to properly catch the attention of those who are listening to your review, it's like this guys... someone composes scores for ballet performances and is randomly given a song to listen to and give an opinion on.. and that song is Snoop Dogs "You Thought", which btw is just as great as 46 and 2 but for completely different reasons. think about what I'm trying to convey here, which i hope I convey something positive after reading this... free your mind boys. free your minds! This, on the fly, song reviews, i don't know guys, what is your channel all about anyways, there's nothing describing what it is you do etc. i probably won't be back but who knows, but thought i'd give you some honest feedback , not hating here, just use my feedback constructively and grow grow grow... good luck guys, oh and that was funny btw .. dark vampire music at a club etc. funny indeed... but just didn't fit , Do some serious listening to all of Maynard's projects... he has many ... will blow your mind , more of a consciousness thing but also in my opinion the music is tight as all #$%# Peace out!
