All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
When Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan covered Wings' "Silly Love Songs" as a guest vocalist for the Replicants, it was amusing and well thought out. When Tool covered "No Quarter" in concert it was intense, appropriate, and staggeringly good. And when Maynard continued the tradition with the beautiful recording of Failure's "The Nurse Who Loved Me," it became apparent that Maynard had a penchant for re-recording songs that were of high quality but not necessarily anthems. But then there's the notion of recording a whole album of covers, which immediately sends off red flags that the water may be running dry and the record label is thirsty for a new release.

When Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan covered Wings' "Silly Love Songs" as a guest vocalist for the Replicants, it was amusing and well thought out. When Tool covered "No Quarter" in concert it was intense, appropriate, and staggeringly good. And when Maynard continued the tradition with the beautiful recording of Failure's "The Nurse Who Loved Me," it became apparent that Maynard had a penchant for re-recording songs that were of high quality but not necessarily anthems. But then there's the notion of recording a whole album of covers, which immediately sends off red flags that the water may be running dry and the record label is thirsty for a new release. A Perfect Circle's album of covers, Emotive, falls flat and fails to raise the bar set so high by the quality of their previous two releases. Turning some of popular music's most potent songs into a soundtrack ideal for background music at your local teen-angst mall-chain clothing store, A Perfect Circle work their way through 12 songs that would almost be unrecognizable in their current arrangement if one weren't familiar with the original versions of each song. John Lennon's somber, optimistic anthem for peace, "Imagine," is changed from its original major key to a funereal minor key dirge. Marvin Gaye's perfect "What's Going On" is turned into a horrible industrial track that would be permissible on a budget-line compilation but is simply unforgivable in its inclusion here. The same could apply to the butchering of Black Flag's "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie" and a few other numbers. However, the album's sole moment of tranquility and its most effective moments lie in the band's treatment of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" and the disturbing a cappella of Joni Mitchell's "Fiddle and the Drum." But it's almost too little too late by the time these two roll around. Emotive is a slight dent in the armor of Maynard's nearly flawless career as a frontman, and it's hopefully a mere detour for A Perfect Circle. [A clean version of Emotive has been issued for those with a sensitive constitution to excessive profanity.]

    Billy sings on a lot of the songs

    Billy, the guitar player, is singing on a lot of the songs and his voice isn't good at all. The arrangements on the cover songs are weird and not artistic in any way. You need to listen to the samples before you buy.

    Mr. Theakston, I Beg to Differ (a letter to the editor)

    Though agreeing with you on some of your points about this album, I believe that it more than carries itself through the entire album. If nothing else, this album is head and shoulders above many others on the market now. Certainly it gives audiophiles hope that there in fact is still intelligence in the music community. Even without knowing the originals, I believe this album puts an interesting new face on such old and tired songs as "What's Going On" and "Peace Love and Understanding." If nothing else, the two new titles on the album (which were not discussed in your review) are more than creative enough to carry the album even without a few of the less interesting covers. I will grant you that this may not be an album that everyone will be playing through every time like the first two, but by no means is this something that will in any way "dent...Maynard's nearly flawless career." I would still highly recommend this album to anyone tired of the incessant moans of Avril Lavigne and Good Charlotte.
