Customer Reviews

A Perfect CD

The simply haunting, powerful, ambient guitar work on "Keep Telling Myself It's Alright" can't help but paint the same ambient picture APC left us with. That being said..the vocals, the lyrics of Billy Howerdel have, for me (and most APC/TOOL fans I’m sure) not just filled a void left behind.. he's created an absolutely amazing work that stands on its own, and may well win the ears of a broader audience than APC. The CD ends with "The Sword" to which Devo Keenan (Maynards son) plays cello.. which bleeds.. perfectly in to the first slightly meaner track "Stripped Away".. listen, feel, enjoy, and repeat.

Fantastic new start

We all know Billy from A Perfect Circle. This album truely combines the subtly of eMOTIVE, the ambience of Thirteenth Step, and some Rockin Riffs from Mer de Noms while pushing newer boundaries like having melodic piano lines throughout the tracks. The layering and production value of the album makes it a great headphone album that still rocks. Billy is, to my surprise, a really strong vocalist. Favourite songs right now: 'sword'-which gets really heavy but still manages to remain melodic and gentle, 'ritual'-an APC version of Depeche mode, and 'Too Late'- a rockin melodic 'new'-new wave rock song. A really great album with some really diverse songs and styles. Highly recommended.

True Musical Artistry

First off, I would like to say I had a much better review written, but was AFK, for a few minutes, and it timed me out, thereby losing the whole write up. In my profession, I find myself listening to alot of music. Of all that I own, this is one that is a true gem in my collection; a work of art. The rhythms are complex and unique between all the songs. The styles range from more of a ballad rock style as in "Too Late" to the more faster, and energetic sound of the popular "The Stone". Every song though is different and unique in it's sound, so it is difficult to truely classify, however the demo's do perform well, in providing a taste of the styles. The uniqueness is not what earns this a five star rating however. It is the detail in which the artists have put into the music. All of the songs, are well balanced and have noticable care put into them to ensure no instrument or vocal overpowers. This holds true even when nonstandard instruments are included such as the piano in "Denial Waits". An important point though is that this is due to the performers, and not processing. Having had the fortune of already being to a live performance, I can vouch that the Album's quality is a result of the artists, not a computer. Again, unlike most albums, this is true for every song, not just the hit singles that the radio plays. For those of you who truely like to be engrossed and enveloped by music, this is a true must have. I cannot think of another current group that is even comparable. Those who get this, will not be disappointed. It is true musical art.
