Product Description

Product Description

Double vinyl LP repressing of this 2000 album from the Alternative rockers led by Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan. Capitol. 2008.


Somewhere inside every alternative metal band lurks a platinum-selling stadium rock act looking for a way out; Perfect Circle appear intended to be Tool front man Maynard James Keenan's ticket to the big time. While Tool's uncompromising take on industrial goth metal have taken them so far, Keenan clearly dreams of bigger things: there are moments on Mer De Noms, notably "Rose", that are in meaningful danger of being confused with Jethro Tull and others, which call to mind the most wretched excesses of Whitesnake. Though there are plenty of worse metal albums out there, it is hard to imagine what conceivable use Mer De Noms will serve. --Andrew Mueller

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.

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!

This is a great album. Here's how I rate my favorite songs on this album:
*1. The Hollow - 10/10 - Definitely one of my favorite APC songs, and a very good opening song!
2. Magdalena - 9/10 - Another great song. I really liked it at first, but it has sort of fallen a little bit down on my list.
*4. Judith - 10/10 - Well we all knew I was going to give this song a "10". Although it has really been overplayed by the radio, it still stands as one of my favorites.
*5. Orestes - 10/10 - This is an incredible song! The way it flows makes this song probably my favorite APC song of all time! The best song on Mer De Noms, HANDS DOWN!
*6. Three Libras - 10/10 - YEAH YEAH YEAH we all know this song is a "10". Everyone loves this song!
*11. Brena - 10/10 - I really like this song! It's just kind of laid back, and I can listen to this song all day. It's great!
Well, I think that these 6 songs really make this album! These are MY favorites, but you really need to get this album if you don't already have it. None of the songs will disappoint.

What eventually attracted me to this music wasn't that Maynard Keenan of TOOL (a band which I had listened to a lot as a teenager but never considered to be one of my favorites) is a part of it but how he utilizes his voice on this album and couples it w/a violinist. I don't think I've ever seen or heard a man sing w/a voice of such force and energy in such a - how should I say it? - contradictory, contained way before. It's interesting how a voice w/such a soaring, huge, floating prescence can emanate from a man who barely moves his lips while singing (unless he's lip-syncing) and who adopts a poise so delicate it's almost as if he's dancing on tip-toe like a wavering puppet. So basically, when I first heard this album, I initially disliked it because I thought it was too negative and goth-ish for me, but when I heard the band perform "3 Libras" I was impressed. It was beautiful, and this album has a lot of dark energy, at times intense and at times totally melancholy, but Keenan's voice and Lenchantin's violin soften it a bit. I'm partial to the haunting quality of "3 Libras" and the fierce drive of "The Hollow." Also, as usual, Keenan has interesting ways of working out his demons and/or desires and expressing them weirdly. (Howerdel also contributes lyrically to this album). For instance, "Thinking of You," a song about obsessive sexual self-gratification, (Amazon.com won't let me use the M word here) is downright creepy. Overall, I'm more interested in the lyrics to some of his other songs from TOOL (like the song "Parabola") and from the 13th Step album than w/this one.

As i stated above this album is very hard to grade. But before i decide to go anywhere with this let me first say some things.
Mer De Noms, and A Perfect Circle itself is no side project. i am not making this up and i am NO fanboy nor am i hear to bash this album, i am merely a mmusical enthusiast who plays no instruments but can understand good music when he hears it. As was stated above and by Maynard James Keenan himself ohh, about a thousand times, A PERFECT CIRCLE IS NOT A SIDE PROJECT NOR A HOBBY FOR ANY OF THE MEMBERS INVOLVED. it is not necessarily his new abnd (though i believe iot seems so) but nor is it a side project. I AM a Tool fan going into this so if u dont like Tool maybe stay away,a nd i ma not going to amke endless comaprisons.
Now that that is out of the way know this, Mer De Noms in my opinion is an INCREDIBLE cd. It however is NOT Tool, yes the poetry is their, yes a slight twinge of sound is there but A Perfect Circle is very much its own distinguishable sound and Lyrics. this abnd has Billy Howerdell (guitar tech from Tool), Maynard JAmes Keenan (vocalist from Tool and a few others involved.i dared to buy this CD though i heard it was alright to great i ahd no hesitation i purchasing it. In short, i love it. The music is stunning, the poetry is amazing and the full range of style encompassed here ranging from electrified Rock to more soft melodious tunes to un-identifiable jammin' i cant express how i feel about this.
To be honest howveer, some of the tracks had downright starnge and/or annoying parts TO ME.
