It struck me that of all of Zeppelin's songs, "No Quarter" is perhaps the song most fit for a Tool cover. Initially, I was not terribly impressed. Of course the audio was crap, as is the case with most youtube videos. The early vocals are heavily filtered, and are even more difficult to make out than Robert Plant's in the original. Eventually it began to grow on me, however. The last three or four minutes are pure excellence in music.

So, yeah, another typical Tool listening session turns into learning the most interesting shit I've learned in months. I guess this hasn't been technically about metal, but listening to metal inspired me to learn something new and mind-opening. How often does Ke$ha do that?
