Mastered at Gateway Mastering Studios
Released on May 2, 2006
Label: Volcano II / Tool Dissectional
Booklet: Stereoscopic sunglasses for viewing images inside the booklet created by Alex Grey.

The album received Grammy nominations and the aforementioned packaging actually won an award.
The name of the album indicates 27 years, approximately 10,000 days, of singer Maynard James Keenan’s mother’s paralysis ending with her death.
Personell: Maynard James Keenan - vocals; Adam Jones - gutar, sitar; Justin Chancellor - bass; Danny Carey - drums, tabla, percussion, Joe Barresi - engineering and mixing; Alex Grey - illustrations; Bob Ludwig - mastering; Lustmord - weather effects, Bill McConnell - vocals; Camella Grace - Voice of Nurse on “Lost Keys”

They say about 10,000 days in the Mix magazine: “10,000 days is a rich listening experience. There are multiple layers of music and sound. Listening to the album a couple of times and discovering new things is part of the experience. It takes you to many places.”

Rolling stone reviewer says: “But the music has such anthemic power that even the most cynical listener can find himself chanting along to lines like “To ascend, you must die!/You must be crucified!”

    The last album by Tool? I mean they had tale over 9 years since they did an album. Or do they making music that take long time?

    I'm one of those people who thinks 10,000 Days seems more like Lateralus leftovers oppose to a whole new take on a record.

    It is a good record and it has the right elements to be a proper Tool album, but for some reason i don't feel i have developed a strong inspiring connection over the years to its music and lyrics, unlike Lateralus or Ænima IMHO. I really, really hope Tool's next record to be better than 10,000 days.

    I get it now, from when this album was released, it will be 10,000 days until the next one is released.

    Some people think this album just re-hashes Lateralus...I think those people need to listen closer, it's an entirely unique part of Tool's discography!

    Слушаю этот альбом с 15-летнего возраста и каждый раз нахожу в нём что-то новое. Жаль, что новый альбом после неоднократных анонсов так и не вышел. Но, всё же, если "10 000 Days" станет последним альбомом группы, то это будет яркая точка.

    I was disappointed when I bought it on the day of release but it's a slow grower, took over a year to get into it. This album comes off as inspired and legitimate artistic progression, not retro-kitch a la recent Opeth.

    This album was good, but it sounded too much like A Perfect Circle, and not enough like Tool.

    It's my favorite by them, and possibly one of my favorite albums of all time. [3]
