Such a great selection of music but yet, no Tool. They have Puscifer and A Perfect Circle which are two of Maynard's bands but yet, no Tool. So I'm just wondering why.

Tool is one of the few bands that do not want to release their back catalogue on any streaming site, because they don't want users to listen to single songs instead of a whole album. At least this is what they say.

Hello! I discovered that Deezer doesn't have "Tool" band in its library. This is strange, given that Deezer has other (less popular, as it seems to me) projects of Maynard James Keenan, such as "A Perfect Circle" and "Puscifer". Is it just an overlook or impossibility to reach an agreement with rightholders?

OK, this might change tomorrow:

By the way, there is a Tool profile on Deezer, but obviously another band with the same name, so you should fix that first before releasing the back catalogue and new album of the prog metal band:

Seems to have been fixed already, so Deezer will probably have their full back catalogue tomorrow, too, as well as their new album on Aug 30th, 2019:

My guess for that "Anti-Nuclear Bacteria" song on that profile is that it is still from that other Tool band/artist/DJ though. 😉
After all that time waiting, it is actualy now on Deezer France :)

Enjoy

PS: Thanks Deezer and Tool for that

By the way, there also is a playlist "100% Tool" available on their new profile in the web player, but not visible in the desktop app yet. If you have enabled synchronising the queue in your audio settings though and started that playlist in the web player, it will also play in the desktop app and probably the Xbox app with FLAC streaming which the web player cannot do. Their released back catalogue seems to have been remastered for streaming, so it is interesting to compare the streams with the original CDs and vinyl albums if you own them, as they might sound better.

Another BTW concerning internal Last.fm scrobbling and its typical mistakes: There are two tracks with an ampersand which is not submitted by Deezer and a typo missing an "n" in "Lost Keys (Blame Hoffmann)". You can correct these mistakes when you are a Last.fm subscriber by editing the scrobbles in your library.
