. .. ... .. . you may say i'm a dreamer. .. ... .. .

With "eMOTIVe," A Perfect Circle restore[s] rock 'n' roll to its
revolutionary roots by throwing a 12-megaton musical bomb in the face
of the ruling class. Described by APC's Maynard James Keenan as "a
collection of songs about war, peace, love and greed," the
astonishing set blends all-new original material with a provocative
selection of cover versions. The tracks chosen bridge three decades
of protest songs, spanning an array of genres - hardcore punk and
heavy metal, new wave and Delta blues, folk rock and rhythm & blues.
Among the insurgent classics reinterpreted on "eMOTIVe" are John
Lennon's "Imagine," Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," Memphis Minnie's
blues stomper, "When The Levee Breaks" (made famous by Led Zeppelin),
Depeche Mode's "People Are People," Devo's "Freedom Of Choice," Black
Flag's "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie," Fear's "Let's Have A War," Joni
Mitchell's "Fiddle And The Drum," and the Nick Lowe (by way of Elvis
Costello) anti-anthem, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And
Understanding." The album kicks off with an explosive take on
"Annihilation," originally recorded by Berkeley aggro-punk legends,
Crucifix. The eMOTIVe release is a limited edition special package
that includes a lenticular cover. <<
