TOOL Aenima (Zoo) Many bands start out by playing subversive,
unconventional music, then gradually move into the mainstream.  Tool do it
backwards:  Their platinum-selling Undertow was unadventurous and
commercial, while Aenima is a jagged, brooding nightmare filled with
roaring guitars, abrupt rhythm shifts and jarring sound effects.  One of
1996's strangest and strongest alt-metal records.
