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.

Pink Floyd is one of the best rock/classic rock/however you want to define them bands of our era. Tool is good, but they are nowhere even near the technical and thematic mastery of the art form that Pink Floyd conjured up. Comfortably Numb is an original Pink Floyd song. Any band can come along and make an astounding cover. But to actually innovate and conceive of the song in the first place? That takes something called genius. Thumbs up to Pink Floyd on this one.

their IS a TOOL and MASSIVE ATTACK song but its not a pink floyd cover. its a remix to stinkfist. nowhere near as good as the original stinkfist. pink floyd sure r awesome but tool are the best thing to ever happen to this world.

I like Tool, and A Perfect Circle. I think that both bands are staple listening for this era, but in my opinion, they are neither the most important band of the last 20 years, nor this generation's Pink Floyd. I don't think a band like Floyd will come around anytime soon.

I'm sure the guys from Tool were just kicking it, playing it, because it's a great song. it's not official anywhere that this is their cover.

I unfortunately have not heard the Tool version.. I LOVE Tool. Your 'click on the cover to hear the song' is BS.. ONLY SENT ME TO AMAZON WHERE THE SONG WAS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. I will go out on a limb and suggest that in spite of how I feel about Tool, noone could ever remake comfortably numb better than the original, Shit, it's perfect the way it is. Besides, in my opinion ,Tool's track record for remakes is pretty pathetic, Have you heard 'silly love songs' or 'a love song'?. Maynards alter ego band(APC) do a much better job w/ cover tunes.

I was listening to Floyd when I was a teenager. I can appreciate not only that Pink Floyd is a great band, so is Tool. It's great to hear another version.

Tool IS the Pink Floyd of our generation... Pink Floyd is the greatest band of all times as far as I'm concerned but Tool is my favorite band. Pink Floyd was one of their main influences too!! The only thing better would be a Tool and Massive Attack collab. doing a Pink Floyd cover.

I agree; is not a Tool cover. I know Tool (the most important band for the last 20 years) and I'm sure: not the Tool sound. But still a grat cover
