I really wanted to cover this a long time ago, but instead kinda sorta ripped it off into my own song. Here’s the number one Maynard James Keenan song according to me.
The Package – Thirteenth Step, A Perfect Circle
This is, in my honest opinion, one of the best songs ever written. By anyone. It strokes me the right way in ever respect. Maynard’s vocals are some of the best he’s ever done. I love the almost tribal feeling drums, the two counter melodies harmonizing perfectly, the bass line that doesn’t just copy the guitar. The song has so much to offer just during the beginning that it’s mind blowing when it explodes half way through. The tone on the guitar in this section is so perfect.
I’m getting shivers down my spine just writing about this song, I need to go listen to it. Enjoy friends:
