A Perfect Circle

Recommended Posts

Their first cd (Mer de Noms) quickly became one of my favorite cds.

Now, they've come out with another, the "Thirteenth Step." It's fucking

wonderful... Maynard always seems to rise above and beyond.

 

 

Anyway, get it.

The music's good... names of the song are a little over-the-top/cliche... Noose, Weak and Powerless, and The Outsider seem a little too "I'm hurt and depraved"... I burn Bibles, too!

Maybe you should listen to the lyrics. And take some Kaopectate for

that brown dribble you got runnin down your chin.

I haven't taken the time to listen to their new cd yet, but i enjoyed the old one. I do know my dad has been steady rocking it for the past couple weeks though.

Nice, chupa. Here:

 

"So glad to see you well

Overcome and completely silent now

Without himself

You cast your demons out

And not to pull your halo down

Around your neck and tug you off your cloud

But I'm more than just curious

How you're planning to go about

Making your amends to the dead

To the dead

 

Recall the deeds as if

They're all someone else's

Atrocious stories

Now you stand reborn before us all

So glad to see you well

 

And not to pull your halo down

Around your neck and tug you to the ground

But I'm more than just curious

How you're planning to go about

Making your amends to the dead

To the dead

 

With your halo slipping down

Your halo slipping

Your halo slipping down

Your halo slipping down

Your halo slipping down (repeated)

 

Your halo slipping down to choke you now"

 

 

 

This isn't a "hurt and depraved" anything. This is Maynard in his normal

tone saying "fuck you" with some intelligence.

I don't understand why, but I hated Mer de Noms. I love everything that Tool has done, but I just couldn't get into that album. But from what hear of the new one: felling it.

I like the whole 99 thing. Didn't think anyone would see? Intelligence

is knowing you only need to put anything over 10 to get the largest size

font.

 

Stay outta the thread if you're gonna make blanket hater statements.

Don't fret precious I'm here

Step away from the window

Go back to sleep....

 

Lay your head down child

I won't let the boogieman come

Counting bodies like sheep to the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble

Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

 

Pay no mind what other voices say

They don't care about you.. like I do, like I do

Safe from pain and truth and choice

And other poisoned devils

See they don't give a fuck about you... but I do

 

Just stay with me

Safe and ignorant

Go back to sleep

Go back to sleep

 

Lay your head down child

I won't let the boogieman come

Counting bodies like sheep to the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble

Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

 

I'll be the one to protect you from

Your enemies and all your demons

I'll be the one to protect you from

A will to survive and a voice of reason

I'll be the one to protect you from

Your enemies and your choices son

They are one and the same I must isolate you

Isolate and save you from yourself

 

Swaying to the rhythm of a new world order!

Counting bodies like sheep to the war drums

The boogiemen are coming

The boogiemen are coming

Keep your head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

 

Stay with me

Safe and ignorant

Just stay with me

Hold you and protect you from the other ones

The evil ones

Don't love you son

Go back to sleep

I hereby present Maynard with an award for being the first to use "boogieman" in a song and not making me laugh every time I hear it.

 

Thirteenth Step is a great album, but the whole thing is let down by "Dissapear". Also The Nurse Who Loved me is about 100x better live.

 

I don't get why they didn't bother with drums on some tracks. I found it made those songs sound a lot weaker than stuff like Pet. I'm even contemplating sampling the drum beat off The Noose and using it for some hip-hoppish thing. That's how impessed by it I am.

A lot of the times you find a song that isn't quite what you'd expect, I'm

pretty sure that's exactly the point. They want to impress... but for the

most part they don't want to conform to shitty 3 chord fluff, with the

generic repetitive drum lines.

Ahh... the vaguely-descript toilet humor rebuttle. Nice.

 

I didn't say Maynard wasn't intelligent... and I didn't say he's not a brilliant musician (I dunno how responsible he is for the arrangement, seems like Danny Carrey is responsible for most of the musical know-how). I'd rather another solid Tool album than two good Perfect Circle albums. Just my opinion. Eat up, chew well. Drink plenty of water.

Vaguely descript? I quoted lyrics from one of the songs you mentioned,

and showed he wasn't talking about suicidal stupidity. So not vague.

Toilet humor? Well I figured that you probably had a few working brain

cells and could figure out that I was insinuating you had diarrhea of

the mouth. Not toilet humor so much as figurative language.

 

 

And stop referring to APC and Tool like they're the same, because

(thank you Spike) other than Maynard there is no link whatsoever.

Damn... how ever did I miss that... :rolleyes:

(thank you Spike) other than Maynard there is no link whatsoever.

 

So... other than the main part of the band, there's no link whatsoever... gotcha.

 

Relax, cupcake... never once did I talk shit on 'em. I offered my opinion... and it wasn't short-sighted or ignorant so chill on the whole establishing dominance thing. They're make good music with a couple flaws... I think the same could be said about almost any band. Capish?
