"With gas"[edit]

""Mit gas" [...] is today the common way to specify sparkling water." Where? --91.66.246.246 (talk) 2010-07-04 22:28

Good question. Definitely not in any part of Germany I've been to. 87.151.97.188 (talk) 17:50, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

The phrase "(Wasser) Mit Gas" [-> carbonated water] (btw: Gas is written with a big "G") is used by German people to order mineral water exspecially in other countries. Often still mineral water is more common there and "mit Gas" is easier to understand than "Mineralwasser" [-> mineral water]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.193.214.124 (talk) 17:08, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

  • by the musical supergroup Tomahawk - you could possibly link Tomahawk
    Done. GRAPPLE X 16:53, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • The lead could be expanded slightly, with more information, such as Despite receiving positive reviews, the band did not release any singles or record any music videos in support the album
    Added. GRAPPLE X 16:53, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Production[edit]

  • Tomahawk is a musical supergroup composed ofTomahawk is a musical supergroup consisting of
    Sure this. GRAPPLE X 16:54, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Mike Patton, vocalist for Faith No More and Mr. Bungle; Duane Denison, guitarist for The Jesus Lizard;Mike Patton, vocalist for Faith No More; Mr. Bungle; Duane Denison, guitarist for The Jesus Lizard;
    I think you've misread it here, "Mr. Bungle" is another band that Patton was in, rather than a person. A semicolon would be breaking it up incorrectly. GRAPPLE X 16:54, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Tool's guitarist Adam Jones offered to direct a video but this was declined.Tool's guitarist Adam Jones offered to direct a video but declined. - or didn't he? Who declined the offer?
    Source just says the band declined the offer, so I've added "by the band". GRAPPLE X 16:54, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Personnel[edit]

  • It would be good to introduce the section with the source where the credits came from.
  • Can you provide a citation for these?
  • You need to use — here
  • Well the source is the album itself, so it seems a bit odd to source it to itself (it's essentially the same source that's giving the track listing and times, the cover and the title, etc). I guess I could use {{Cite album-notes}} if you'd like but it seems a bit circular. Have replaced the dash symbols with dash code, though I don't know what difference that makes (not exactly a tech savvy kind of guy here :P) GRAPPLE X 16:58, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
