When has Tool ever released anything unoriginal? Or less than amazing?
They also tend to go 5 years or so between albums. So have some damned patience.
I got to see them last year at Voodoo Fest and I assure you, they still kick all the ass.

Patience? I didn't get the impression that the OP was anxious about it, take it easy man. Still... 11 years is long overdue if you want to set the bar at 5 years between each album as a benchmark.
Adressing the OP; I would agree with you about the apprehension regarding the quality of what they're putting out on the forthcoming album. But I'm alwyas like that when a band makes a comeback, or been on a long hiatus.
According to a recent interview with the bassist, they are approximately 90 percent done with the album. Also: "Maynard James Keenan still likely has to prepare vocal melodies and lyrics". So there... ample evidence that it'll take a year or two more until we hear anything, at least.
