Jeff Miers of the Buffalo News reviewed Tool’s show at HSBC Arena on Friday, comparing the group to the late director Stanley Kubrick. “For those used to the arena-metal/rap preening, shucking and jiving of most rock acts that have emerged over the past decade, Tool in concert might be an upsetting experience,” Miers explained. “You’ll get none of that ‘rock star trip’ nonsense here, Junior. Tool’s is a show with a message, and it’s a message not unlike Kubrick’s: Life is short and fraught with unspeakable despair and moral compromise. So deal with it.” Buffalonews.com has since removed the article.
