Maynard or Maynard?
more substance [not just numerically]
tool is supposed to be this intellectual metal band, but it isnt. perfect circle has some catchy songs, so for me, they fulfil thier purpose more fully.
say they are not intellectual without giving a reason. i can see why people find them pretenscious, and they are, and its easy to criticize them for it, but i personally think their music stands up despite this.
I never really enjoyed APC as much as Tool
The second album is pretty pap though.
Tool are just boring.
Aenima is a brilliant album, though 10,000 Days is utter hogwash. That coupled with Maynard being much more of a dick these days has pretty much made me not like Tool so much as I used to. Still better than APC though. APC were quite good in a less muscular, watered down Tool way, and of course they had Paz.
are so infinitely hilariously 'not with it', they may well be the absolute polar opposite to what I like in music.
i.e. the chugga-chugga-chugga metal parts, more than most Perfect Circle I think.
But then I like Judith (by A Perfect Circle for those not in the know) more than most things ever.
so there you go.
better tah any A Perfect Circle album and still Tool's finest work.
But just for their first album, which reminds me of being young. I like doing impressions on Maynard in Tool though, and the Tool bassist is pretty awesome.
with you matinee, lateralus is awesome, a summation of tool in one album. lyrically, texturally and compositionally (new word?) brilliant. saw them at rock en seine earlier in the year. really really good. tool > perfect circle.
is amazing though. much better than the album
but they would be better if they were twice as fast.
the masters of dirge yawn fests
sound like Tool before they went prog.
Which for me, makes APC the better band.
13th Step = The tits.
