Fireborn: A Perfect Circle In Phoenix

APC, circa 2000

Full disclosure: I'm seeing Tool (and Isis) on Friday, and I feel obliged to upload Maynard James Keenan in pairs. Here's another look at the A Perfect Circle; it's quite a different listen from the one I posted way back when. The setlist is contains all of their debut album Mer de Noms, excluding the ambient tracks "Renholdër" and "Over." What it lacks in breadth, it more than makes up for in ferocity. Yet, throughout the guitar pyrotechnics, Maynard's vocals and lyrics keep the material personal and emotional. Perhaps not the characteristics you'd expect from our favorite unconventional prog metal heroes, but one that resounds strongly with APC's "vibe."

The show was record at America West Arena, Phoenix, Arizona on June 4th, 2000. The sound quality is excellent, thanks to the professional recording setup.
