Cover vs. Original

Comfortably Numb


Both songs are good, but the Tool version is more modern. That makes the song not better, but I like it better.

The bootleg that is supposedly Tool covering CN is actually a Demo Gilmour did for the album prior to having lyrics to sing. It is not a cover. As far as Tool vs Floyd, they are not really comparable imo. They are both excellent bands and leaders of innovative and progressive rock. I would love to see what Tool would do with CN or any Floyd tune.

Tool DID cover Numb. I have it. I have heard it. There it is. They do not do it traditionally. Maynard sings notes-not words. It is a rare download. Short and sweet....More or less the band screwing around in the studio. It got recorded and leaked. Not worth comparing, but beautiful. And Steve from Massapequa: ...supposedly....you are a fucking retard.

First of all, "Comfortably Numb" is not found on Salival. Secondly, Tool NEVER did a cover of "Comfortably Numb" anyway, so you will not find that song on ANY of Tool's works at all.
Thus said, this comparison is pointless, since one of the items in comparison does not exist.

White people PLEASE!
The Pieces Fit" is a "Welcome to the Machine" nod (albiet bit obvious )is the source of contention with Comfortably numb song ? only a lazy Floyd Fan would get it wrong.

Please take this off! Tool has never ever covered this song, and I doubt they would ever cover a PF song.
