Orestes, Thinking of You, Renholder, The Hollow, and Magdalena all kick ass. The two singles that everyone has probably heard are 3 Libras and Judith, which rule as well. This is without a doubt the best band of the years 2000-2001 so far, and their CD blows everything else away. It's ultra heavy, ultra beautiful, it's just about perfect. See them live, too! I did, and it kicked ass. Here is a live review of them that I posted in Fretbuzz:
I recently saw A Perfect Circle live and it was awesome! The sound was excellent and there were only about three thousand people there so I got real close up to the stage. They played every song from Mer de Noms, Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie, and a new tune that kicked a-- but I can't remember how it went. They played a remix of 3 Libras and then halfway through reverted to the original version! That was kinda weird. The best songs were Thinking of You and Judith. I remember when they played Judith they had everybody singing backup vocals and it sounded like a beautiful choir from hell or something! Really cool! The biggest surprise of the evening was at the very end, the lights came back on and everybody thought it was over. Hundreds of people left, but then Maynard came back out with no wig and they played Sober! That was sick!!! The two things that really stood out about this show: Billy Howerdel has such the kickass stage presence, and the other thing was that I can't believe how good of a voice Maynard has at a live show! I swear, it was like studio! Anyway, if you haven't already bought it, buy the f---ing CD and see them live! Trust me you won't regret it!
As you can see, I liked it alot! Buy the CD! You'll be glad you did! If you don't like it, kiss my ass! It should be called: A Perfect CD.
