Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan offers up something to fill the collective void of fans eagerly awaiting a follow up to AENIMA. Keenan teamed with Tool guitar tech and A Perfect Circle guitarist/composer Billy Howerdel for MER DE NOMS, which is both a band effort and an engaging hard rock album, recorded while Tool renegotiated with their label and other band members took a break. But don't be fooled; A Perfect Circle is more than a one-off side project. The band isn't nearly as b...

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (1/4/01, p.114) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Top 50 Albums of 2000" - "...A positively ancient metal, a gothic throb that leapfrogs over rap metal back to the sleek PORNOGRAPHY-era dolor of the Cure and psychedlic-Valhalla songs of Led Zep....refreshing darkness." Spin (10/03, p.107) - "...On the ballad '3 Libras', Keenan sings with an elegance few could have imagined..." Entertainment Weekly (6/2/00, p.78) - "...Less ominous [than Maynard's former band Tool], leavening guitar shrapnel with genuinely pretty melodies and frilly production flourishes - kinda like neo-Metallica, but with 'cojones'." - Rating: A- Q (7/00, p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Echoes Tool's dark alt.rock dynamics in the stealthy riffing of 'Magdalena' and 'Judith', but it is with gentler songs such as '3 Libras' or the Led Zeppelin-influenced 'Renholder' that [they] truly shine." CMJ (5/22/00, p.26) - "...Offers songs [which] are carefully arranged, less aggressive and almost symphonic in scope, letting [James] Keenan reference religion and sex while biting with ruthless verbal bitch slaps....Merciless." Melody Maker (6/20/00, p.60) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This is Killing Joke and Jane's Addiction; this is Soundgarden and Alice In Chains; Keenan's gorgeously intimate voice is shoved up front throughout and it's his throat's suckable folds that draw you deeper in..." NME (Magazine) (7/1/00, p.45) - 7 out of 10 - "...Mystic atmospherics and haunting, uplifting vocals....[They] have created a work of morbid beauty. In terms of darkness, it eclipses nearly everything else."

  • Perfect Condition

    Mailed in Perfect condition. No cracks or tampering. Pretty quick shipping. Sure my brother will love his present.

  • Mer De Noms

    Mer De Noms (Sea of Names) is one of the most all together incredible albums I have ever had the honor of hearing. Keenan's voice is haunting, passionate, powerful and has incredible range. The bands combination of talent brings passionate, mind blowing, hearfelt music crashing into your ears drums. The album tracks range from violent anger, deep seeded pain, unbridled passion and all heart. Lyrically its obvious Keenan is on his game as always, his words never fail to paint a dramatic beautiful picture. Tracks such as "judith" are full of anger and a hint of confusion, while tracks like "brena" show Keenan's softer, more loving side and their 6th track "3 libras" shows a bitter painful realization that tears open your heart form the second Howerdel's guitar comes in. The entire album from first to last song is perfection only made possible by such master minds that have come together to form A Perfect Circle.

  • I listen to this album at least twice a week. It helps me to feel. Buy it. You'll love it!
