AllMusic Review by

To mark the 10th anniversary of the progressive metal band Tool's remarkable sophomore album, 1996's AENIMA, the String Quartet Tribute organization rearranged the set in classical mode, resulting in a lower-key, yet in its own way equally intense, listening experience. Here the quartet (in this instance an octet) transforms the uncompromising "Stinkfist" into a dissonant modern classical piece, while "Die Eier Von Satan" benefits from an intriguing, distinctly avant-garde treatment.
