Tool are just 2deep4me

But seriously, when I listen to them I think "Adam Jones is a brilliant guitarist, Danny Carey is a really good drummer" and so on, but at the same time they just don't resonate with me past that for whatever reason.

Maynard is a better vocalist, but I feel NIN's expansive discography is a better creative outlet than Tool. Plus NIN is one of my favorite bands ever, and Tool is awesome too..but not a top 5 favorite.

NIN, There's usually only a minute or two of Tools 10 minute songs that I enjoy.

I feel like Nine Inch Nails are more inconsistent. I agree about the lyrics, they can be pretty bad, ESPECIALLY on With Teeth which isn't very good. I never really listened to The Slip and Year Zero was alright.

That being said everything Trent put out in the 90's was A+. Tool is good but haven't reached NIN's highs

Tool. Probably because I'm more familiar with their discography

Tool. They consistently make great albums, and I like way more of their music than NIN.

NIN, but I have to admit I've listened to a lot more NIN than Tool.

I'm biased toward NIN.

In my eyes, Tool is better in terms of technicality, the way they weave together the time-signature changes and tempo changes is incredible.

However, I honestly believe Trent is a superior songwriter still.

When was Tool ever industrial? Ministry and NIN would have been a better comparison poll.

Tool industrial? [3]

That said, definitely Tool. I like NIN and all (specifically their more recent output), but Tool is just incredible on so many levels.

They should win just for that 3-way song split on Lateralus.
