KMA2845 The LP Project 10: A Perfect Circle – Thirteenth Step

For some reason, I haven’t even opened this 2LP set. Factory sealed freshness! Mmmm…

I mean, I’ve heard the album… I think perhaps I’ve owned the CD at one point and that’s how I heard it. Anyway, you know who they are, and you know this album. Carry on, as you were!

  1. Get it opened!

  2. I always find that sleeve makes me particularly queasy. Great album though


  3. I started following Metal and Alternative around the time this came out. I was also listening for Tool comparisons or separations


    • How did it go? Preference for one over the other?

      • I respect the growth. Tool was more raw. APC sounded more polished but still tuff. I think I respect Maynard, overall and the musicians he works with


        • Raw’s a good word, and yet it’s still pristine. What a sound… especially live! Maybard is an interesting cat. Whatever his reputation, I think he (and his fellow musicians) has a fairly unerring sense of what is right for the music.

          • I like the way you worded that. I miss music from that era, in general. Rock was really rock, then I’m no country fan, but I appreciate old school Country more than the present. Hip Hop is endangered


            • Rock is still rock, you just have to go find it. Glorious Sons, Black Keys, Trews, Monster Truck, lots of great stuff out there! I’m sure other folks can chip in with a ton of other suggestions too. I’m with you on the country too, I like the old stuff. Hank, Johnny, Willie, Patsy, Loretta. I don’t tend to listen to anything of the stuff from the last 30 years and that’s a big chunk of time.

              Hip hop is endangered? I thought it was the biggest, fastest-growing, most popular genre these days? Or is that precisely why it’s endangered, too much dilution in the pool? Rap is a tricky thing for me, it could probably be its own philosophy-style post, but I need them to be saying something, socially conscious without being strident, and I have to be able to tell that they mean it, not using it as a marketing targeted thing. I don’t care about raps that are just posturing, guns and bling and women and how they rose up from the projects or whatever. That’s juvenile crap. Needs to be meat on the bone.


  4. Still yet to try any of this band’s music. I’ve been really into Tool for the past few months so I’ve been getting through that first, haha. Where do you reckon I should start with Perfect Circle?
