Even after a long 13 year hiatus from the music business, people still haven’t forgotten about Tool after all these years. Tool’s “Fear Inoculum” finally comes out and it’s already the biggest selling album which isn’t surprising. The album somehow went up to no. 1 on the Billboard 200, beating out Taylor Swift’s new album, “Lover”.
This is impressive and amazing really. Nowadays, it’s still very difficult for any rock band to make it high on the Billboard 200 ’cause pop, country and rap are still a dominating industry. You can still see that rock and metal is still slowly trying to make a mainstream comeback.
It’s not surprising that “Fear Inoculum” would turn out to be a pretty big seller ’cause it’s a pretty great album. I love it. It’s their best one in their career for sure.
What a shocking twist in the Billboard 200 this week. Yep, Taylor is back to no. 1. Bruce’s “Working On a Dream” made no. 1 for two weeks, The Fray made no. 1 for one week, now Taylor Swift is back at the top. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s “Raising Sand” moves way up quickly due to their big Grammy win, Coldplay moves up pretty high too.
I’m gonna have to pick up Taylor Swift’s album, just to see what’s so special about it. I actually came close to buying it at Best Buy a few times but refuse everytime.
Does anyone out there enjoy Taylor Swift’s music? I would think Taylor’s fanbase is nothing but mostly young kids. I don’t think 30’s and 40 something people would listen to this. If there really are people that listen to Taylor Swift who are in between the ages of 30-5o, I’d be pretty surprised.
