01) A Perfect Circle- Eat The Elephant:
What a disappointment. This album is a glorified Puscifer record. After 15 years of nothing, this is the best they could do? Give me a break. It really doesn’t bode well for the hope of what the new Tool album is going to be like. This album is what I like to call Hot Garbage
