A Perfect Circle

Thirteenth Step



Published September 25, 2003.A Perfect CircleThirteenth Step (Virgin)Thirteenth Step will surprise those expecting a loudly aggressive album in the wake of Twiggy Ramirez and James Iha joining APC’s star-studded line-up. Instead it relies on haunting melodies, and is far more brooding and introspective than the group’s debut, Mer De Noms. Thirteenth Step quietly simmers, prepared, poised and ready. It broods hauntingly in the shadows, menacing those who wander too close, those who remain “Weak and Powerless” to its quiet aggression. —Trevor Savory
