Mmmmm, Mer de Noms sat in my CD player for a good three weeks, and more often than not I'd be hitting replay at the end. Rich and varied with a good shuffling between the hard and the soft. Absolutely nothing to skip. Favorite tracks, "The Hollow" for its vampiric themes, "Magdalene" for its sultry, unashamed hunger, and "Thinking of You," because even the bad guys need love songs.

Well, I have to say this is an excellent album, soft vocals accompanied by creative instrumentals in a variety of ways and styles. the fact that the one and only Maynard James Keenan (of tool fame) is an added bonus. I bought this album with my hopes up a little too high that this would sound like tool (because, honestly, who doesn't like tool?) but I was mistaken. you can still tell that it's Maynard, but the songs on here are completely original with little to no tool influence (a few songs have a "lateralus" style, but it's vague). This is some great easy listening and it's only actual flaw is that it simply isn't quite as good as tool. nonetheless, this is an awesome cd.

Artist Name: A Perfect Circle
Album Name: Mer de Noms
Year of Release: 2000
Track 1 - The Hollow - A wonderful song to introduce the sound of A Perfect Circle. The band has managed to create the perfect mix of rock, punk, and metal, creating a wonderful piece of music. This song shows that A Perfect Circle is more melodic than other metal / rock artists such as Tool. Although the lyrics are not printed on the inside cover, you may want to take the time to find them on the internet if you can't make them out in the song, because they are quite well done.
Track 2 - Magdalena - Beginning with a softer tone, quiet, slowish drums lead us into the epic track that is 'Magdalena'. There is some excellent guitar and percussion work in this piece. This being one of the harder songs on the album, fans of Tool may be able to relate to this song better than they can to softer / slower songs on the album. On the inside cover, we see a crumpled up piece of paper with some lyrics from the song:
'I'd sell my soul, my self esteem, a dollar at a time, fro just one taste of you, my Magdalena'
Track 3 - Rose - Another harder work, 'Rose' conveys is the overall feel of 'Mer de Noms', with excellent bass and guitar work, intriguing lyrics, and haunting vocals. Especially creative is the chorus, which shall not be given away in this review. It will be left as a surprise when you buy the album!
Track 4 - Judith - Perhaps the most explicit track on the album, lyrics tell us to do unspeakable things to our God. However, on the band's website, Maynard James Keenan (main vocals) states that it's not THE God, but only YOUR God. Another hard, yet excellent track.
Track 5 - Orestes - A slower, more melodic track, 'Orestes' shows us the softer side of A Perfect Circle's music.

A Perfect Circle's debut album is amazing, I first heard of this band from being a fan of "Tool", Maynards original band, before starting this side-project. "Judith" being their only single from the album, it seemed they died for years, but recently came back to life, now with a new bassist (originally from Marilyn Manson) and released "Thirteenth Step" which is also a must check out album, but unfortunately, isn't as great as this album. If you like Rock, musicially creative artists, deep, dark lyrics, and an amazing vocalist, you'll love this album, check it out!

The music is both ethereal and hard, and Maynard's voice becomes one of the instruments in each song. I loved Tool and APC's single "Judith." If you listen to Judith, don't expect the rest of the album to mirror it-it's much less dark, and none of the other songs helped earn the Explicit Lyrics warnings. All of the songs have it's own beauty, and no matter how dark and cryptic the subject of them, it's all strangely sympathetic and lulling. Here is a review of each song:
1. The Hollow - Builds up both quickly and slowly... the climax of the song is amazing.
2. Magdalena - Dark and sexual sounding, with a hint of desperation.
3. Rose - Angry and powerful, with some of the most amazing lyrics I've ever heard- Maynard's singing of them is perfect.
4. Judith - People argue this is the hardest song on the album, but I disagree- it's the best Toolesque song, and therefore made a great single. Don't think I dislike the song, it's one of my favorites, and it's cynical sound is raw.
5. Orestes - ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. That is all.
6. 3 Libras - It's like a typical unrequited love ballad, but more mature and understanding. The violins in this song is great- this used to be one of my favorites, but I listened to it way too much. Don't do that and nearly ruin this song. :)
7. Sleeping Beauty - One of the most lacking songs, but this album is so good that... well, lacking for Mer De Noms is like a really amazing song. The music fits the lyrics wonderfully.
8. Thomas - I think this is the hardest song- it's deep and... textured. No other way to describe it. The beginning is almost frightening.
9. Renholder - I wish it wasn't so short. A very tribal, heavy and magical sounding tract with hard to understand lyrics.
