Counting Bodies is a great song. I think a lot more people would like this album if we had never heard the original versions. I like that they didn't regurgitate the song right back to us, they threw the song into the APC machine. Does it work? Yeah, if you're a huge APC fan. I can't listen to their versions of "When The Levee Breaks" and "People Are People", however. Not bad. Different.
Thought this one clicked on me the other day. Has some good moments but too many bad ones as well and the only APC song is a big disappointment in my opinion. Sure, expectations are high but that's why we listen to these guys, isn't it?
I think this is the best album I've ever heard, of any band. Every song is unique, as if they're all from a different album (yes, I know it's a cover album, but these versions of the songs have only the words of the originals and I think nothing more. they're just NEW songs), even Maynard's voice sounds different in each of 'em. A masterpiece.
guess, this one is my favourite. i discovered it back at the times I had no internet, so nothing could influence my choice.... it's unique and beautiful. and, i guess, i've heard it somewhere, but the fact that many don't get this sound, makes it even more beautiful.
I am not against political messages in music, but the specific messages in this album are terrible. Peace love and understanding? What is this, the 70s? That's not how we're going to fix anything in international affairs. The hippie movement died off for a reason.
Besides Passive (which is insanely great), I think the rest of the album is mediocre at best. Nothing as brilliant as the Thirteenth Step.
greatest cover album in history. every song on this album is better than the original. yes even imagine. I mean the original artists wrote great lyrics, but a perfect circle's music is so different and beautiful.
