Does anyone like this crazy/wonderful band??
I especially loved their debut album, "Mer de Noms."
i think they're brilliant! tis a shame they split...
personally i prefer "thirteenth step" to "mer de noms", because it's more experimental and feels like they're doing more what they want to. the whole album is less commercial, i like that.
Maynard has gone back to TOOL forever, and Jeordie White (bass) has gone off to join Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails for their next album "with teeth"
I can't complain, unless I think of tool while I'm listening to Circle. Then thier music makes me want to vomit. It's too much verse, chorus, verse, chorus. And alot of the guitar is way too simple IMO. I'm not talking about techy sweeps or thrashing either, Just some more creativity when it comes to playing around the tempo.
I took my son and his girlfriend to see them. I'd never heard of them. They definately jammed!!!!
Love them, love them, love them!
Like Tool, their lyrics are just fantastic (same writer, of course).
I heard that Maynard whipped out his schlong and blew his load while singing "Thinking of You" during one of the shows.
Don't know if it was just a silly rumour or if it actually happened...although I wouldn't put it past him!
One show I wouldn't want to miss!
Hey OldHippie, that's awesome that you were diggin' on A Perfect Circle.
I like to turn up their stuff really loud in my car while I'm driving to school. Some music's just gotta be played LOUD.
i think thats probably true....
yeah i love playing "the package" really really loud....thats such an incredible song
yah, i have their thirteenth step cd, i keep forgetting i have it, but i actually like them.
I like 'em. they totally butchered "imagine" tho.every time I hear it on the radio i have to turn it off
I definetly dig on them....
Musical wise I don't think they are anything special. Lyrics wise they are the shit. So was Tool.
I watched a dvd of some of their videos and as I was listening to the lyrics I was amazed. A friend owned it and put it on while he was getting ready to leave out.
But they are definately better than a lot of shit out there today.
Maynard is great. A Perfect Circle is great.
I love APC.... being a huge TooL fan, they call out to me somehow
They have some very good lyrics and themes... I like the music myself... but I think that they should get a tad more instrumental.
I am a huge fan/lover/wanna have his baby of Maynard and TOOL and I do like A Perfect Circle alot.
They spilt? WHA? When did this happen and where the hell have I been? Well, if Maynard needed to leave APC in order to focus soley on TOOL than that's ok by me
dude, they are the fucking shit. I saw them last year when they came to australia and i was just speachless and also i met them.
yeh well, i think the rest of TOOL were getting annoyed, i mean, APC released three albums in as many years, where TOOL release three albums in about 10...
it's a shame they split though, there was a rumour that they'd continue with a female singer and no jeordie white, but i don't know how true this is. i'm gutted cos i had the chance to go see them before i was into them, and i turned it down!
the third covers album was only to fulfill the recording contract, it was the last thing they had to do.
yah they really fucked up 'imagine.'
no one else can do it better than john lennon. i just wanna tell other musicians to leave it alone and not even try...
but that's really my only criticism.
How can you not like this band if you are a fan of Tool's then.. "mer de noms" great CD and can'twait for them to tour. They are gonna tour,yes?
