Lateralus is the third full-length studio album by Tool, released in 2001 The album was produced by David Bottrill, who had produced the band's two previous releases Ænima and Salival.
The track listing is altered on the vinyl edition, with "Disposition" appearing at track 8. Because of the long running time, the double vinyl edition could not be released like the disc since the songs would not fit on each disc side in that order. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and was certified platinum in Australia. The band won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song "Schism" in 2002.
