It's a title for Tool's re-ordered album Lateralus. If you list the tracks in order from 1 to 13 vertically and draw a spiral starting with 6 and then spiraling outward and connecting each number in the spiral, you get the correct order of The Holy Gift! The result: 6, 7, 5, 8, 4 ,9 ,13, 1, 12, 2, 11, 3, 10
I never did this before, and being a major Tool fan, I had to try it. It took a lot of editing and time with Audacity, and I finally got it and exported it as an MP3.
In all honesty, it's a much better order than the first arrangement, but I still have some problems with it. It doesn't seem like it's the order that it should be. I see the album as a process of healing in the soul, so I think the order should go from the most hate-filled, angry songs to the most enlightening ones. The Holy Gift is not like this all that much. I still have yet to find the perfect order, but I have a good start so far!
It really is a great album. Most of my favorite songs by Tool are on it. Check it out!
