# 50:“10,000 Days (Wings Part II”) is a crash course in everything that makes Tool great -intertwining bass parts, crunching guitar riffs, airy arpeggiations, building tensions, hypnotic vocal phrasing from Maynard James Keenan, and prog-inspired dynamic shifts. The song breaks down for a mournful, Crimson-esque solo by Adam Jones, then crashes back into monster riffage once again before demonstrating another of the band's signature seamless dynamic shifts. It's a lesson in how to pack a track with atmosphere and power, darkness and light.
