Tool - Lateralus album, reordered (aka The Holy Gift)

Here is a special one for you today, guys. I bring to you what is considered by some to be a "Holy Gift" from the progressive band Tool, and if you listen to it yourself, you may find that agree.

So what is so special about this particular musical gift that one might consider it as having qualities of holiness? It is the whole transcendent album Lateralus by Tool combined into one song -- all of the songs were rearranged in a certain order (when 1-13, the numbers of the tracks, are arranged horizontally, a spiral can be drawn from the two middle numbers outward, and then from the outer numbers inward, to create the new order).

This album, rearranged in the particular order, creates a whole, flowing song, and at times it is hard to distinguish the individual songs when they are played one after another. Editing them together makes it nearly impossible! Check out the video below to see what we mean:
