    The grim darkness of Tool meets the melodic direction of more mainstream rock, and the result is some of the most dramatic and chilling music you will ever hear. Special mention goes to "Imagine", the band's re-imagining of John Lennon's magnum opus. Odds are that you will never listen to the song the same way again.

    found myself listening to passive, counting bodies, imagine, and annihilation was a badass intro. people are people was alright, lets have a war sounds like something from puscifer. and the rest were kinda just whatever to me. i have alot of understanding, and respect what these guys do, and it was a good album for the times. i would have to say though that it was the worst of the 3 albums. i would highly recommend mer de noms, and thirteenth step though as mind blowers!

    APC have taken a few steps back with releasing this (mainly covers) record. It has some good covers, but I'd much rather listen to the originals over most of this cover stuff. The best songs on the record comes from their originals 'Passive' and 'Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums'. But surprisingly, 'Imagine' (John Lennon cover), is a haunting take on Lennon's classic tune.

    this album isn't for everybody; but if your open minded there's some enjoyable tracks. passive, imagine, lets have a war, and on a good day, counting bodies.

    A Perfect Circle has 2 original songs on this album and the others are covers. The originals are amazing and the covers are perfect. A Perfect Circle made all of the covers their own and they succeeded.

    Unexpectedly impressive. [Dec 2004, p.138]
  2. Emotive falls flat and fails to raise the bar set so high by the quality of their previous two releases.
  3. 60
    One of the most bizarre covers albums ever. [Dec 2004, p.102]
