  • Summary: A Perfect Circle/Tool's Maynard James Keenan releases the debut album of his side project.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 6
  2. Negative: 2 out of 6
  1. It's a record full of deep, freaky grooves.
  2. 70
    Keenan sometimes winks too much, but he knows when to pull back from the brink of ridiculousness. [Dec 2007, p.125]
  3. Vagina finds Keenan attempting a fresh spin on the style. He doesn't always hit the mark, but the perpetually distorted, faux-sultry vocals ('Queen B') and visceral dance beats should elate those who've been itching to pull their old My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult T-shirts out of storage.
  4. The lyrics--delivered in a borderline sexy-creepy style that sometimes veers into Gregorian-chant territory--range from esoteric and dark to crude and dumb.
  5. The problem with the album goes past its unmemorable music.
  6. Not every album can be a tour de force, but Keenan is normally much better than this even on his worst days.
