  • 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.

    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.

    Its an album that grows on you, but by your third listen you're getting down to the dark, dirty grooves meynard let seep out of his Its an album that grows on you, but by your third listen you're getting down to the dark, dirty grooves meynard let seep out of his sordid imagination. All in all there are probably two tracks that i skip over and another point for it taking some time but a 7 is perfectly fair score for this little departure from political ranting and raving and rocking...
