Supposedly according to where?
I've read there are seven songs on the album. Is that what you're thinking?

"When we finished recording, I went to the guys and said, 'I think we should have called the record Volume 7' because a lot of the songs are in seven and there are seven tracks on the record.

"Then Maynard [James Keenan, vocals] told me about a whole concept he had about the number seven. We were all, like, 'Oh My God! This is too weird!' Then Alex Grey [Tool album artist] basically said the same thing and he has a concept that will reveal itself through video.

"So there are a lot of rhythms and polyrhythms where we explore 7/4 or 7/3, and there's a riff we count in 21 - which we count as three rounds of seven. I wrote a four-minute lead over something counted in 21, which is crazy!"
