The cheesy piano, ridiculous production, dumb lyrics... I find it hard to believe this isn't just a big inside joke by MJK.

It's like he wanted to reach the peak of "rock 'n' roll-ness" and see if his fans (who he is on record as detesting) would follow him to the mountain.

I am really not sure there’s a schtick. I think he’s just kind of a douche.

Haven't formed a solid opinion of this album yet but I agree the album cover is one of worst I've seen in a long time. It really is awful

sing a duet with Tori Amos one night, back up vocals to Zach de la Rocha the next, and still have enough creativity for 3 other bands. Say what you will about MJK, he's a talented mother fucker.

Is he?

Puscifer has like 5 good songs (mostly on Conditions of My Parole) and APC has like 4 decent songs.

Tool's strengths are Carey and Jones.

I do like MJK's vocals (when they aren't overly processed), but his lyrics are dumb and his personality and overt hostility to his own fans is grating.

Also, his wine sucks.

Probably because everyone forgot APC exists.

just on my first listen all the way through. I'm diggin it. I can see why some don't like the mix. Seems a little rough, like some songs weren't quite finished. I'll have a few more listens with the lyrics in front of me.

Hourglass should have been a b-side though.

A Perfect Circle Plot North American Tour
Fall trek in support of group's first album in 14 years, 'Eat the Elephant'

Image

A Perfect Circle will embark on a North American tour this fall in support of their new album, Eat the Elephant.

The trek kicks off October 20th at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, Utah and includes stops in Denver, Austin, Atlanta, Nashville, New York and Las Vegas. The trek wraps November 20th at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

Tickets for A Perfect Circle's fall tour go on sale April 27th at 10 a.m. local time. Complete information is available on the band's website.

A Perfect Circle will embark on a shorter North American trek this spring that starts May 12th in Somerset, Wisconsin and wraps May 26th in Dallas. The group also has European runs planned for June and December.

Eat the Elephant marks A Perfect Circle's first album in 14 years, following 2004's Emotive. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, singer Maynard James Keenan explained the group's lengthy hiatus. "Part of it was me having to step away for a while. Part of it was my winery and trying to get Tool nudged forward, and Puscifer. All those things were going on simultaneously and I just lost track of time, honestly."

He added of the band's future: "Anything's possible now, and we're able to blow the dust off that and go, 'Oh, yeah, we can do this.' And [guitarist] Billy [Howerdel] always has material up his sleeve."

I think if I combined some of these songs with the new jack white songs I can make a half decent album

I absolutely loved Mer De Noms, but found that Thirteenth Step was OK. The covers and remixes were so so.

I'm really enjoying this album. I'm not hearing so much of the issues with the production, to me there's some good clarity in the drums and pretty good bottom end in the bass. I'm usually picky with production, so I'm not sure why I'm hearing any of the roughness. (I've been listening with headphones, in the car, and bluetooth speaker). To me, this sounds better mixed than Thirteenth Step.

This ranks as their second best album already.

Wait, are those of you who are complaining about the mixing - are you still listening to leaks? Or some kind of legit source?

I've been listening via Spotify, with the quality set to max.
