For those who like Tool
    #1157077 - 12/20/02 06:23 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Do you listen to  A Perfect Circle ?

If you haven' heard of them and you like Tool, check 'em out (Maynard is in this band as well).

aperfectcircle.com

Perfect Circle is kinda... meh. Some of it has to do with the fact that I can't help but compare them to Tool, but I just don't like the "soft cardcore" feel of it.

APC is a great band! Not as great as Tool of course, but it's still very good.  :mad:

Maynard once called A Perfect Circle more of a right-hemispheric band, and Tool a left-hemispheric, referring to the opposing forces that make up everything from the universe to our own brains. :smile: Notice also that after the APC project, Maynard's lyrics in Lateralus were more oriented towards relationships and opposing forces, from the micro to the macro cosmic.

A Perfect Circle is great; I couldn't see how anyone could dislike the song "Brena" or "3 Libras"...

On a semi-off-topic-side-note, Maynard was in my dream last night... Except he had very large, black eyes, and he said something about being an alien / human hybrid...  :crazy:

I love that. Tool makes me happy.

I've seen both bands live, and Tool is WAY better.

I'm sure APC doesn't have any trippy visuals to look at.  :tongue:

I know many females that would disagree with you.  :grin:

I guess it's all in your perspective. Personally, it depends on which mood I'm in. If I'm feeling in a more masculine, energetic type mood, I listen to Tool... If I feel in a more sensitive, passive mood, I listen to APC.  :smile:

I don't get it.  :confused:

Same here.  :grin:

I was replying to Silversoul's statement that Tool is way better live. I know a few females that have seen both live and tend to lean towards APC more, probably because of their female perceptual vantage points. :smile:

Yeah, I guess I can see that. Not many girls like Tool it seems.  :blush:

And there's a chick in APC.  :smirk:

In reply to:

So then a Tool concert is one big sausage party? That's a shame, I'm glad I'm married.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
