Holy fuck that album cover...

Ok... that has got to be one of the worst artworks I've ever seen! The make-up and Photoshop jobs are horrible enough but... just look at what he's eating! I believe that is not an elephant, Mister Keenan.

Not gonna lie, the first half is actually really good. Tracks 2-6 are some of the strongest material A Perfect Circle have released to date! After that, the whole thing collapses HARD and I mean HAAARD! The rest of the album is filled with horrible compositions and ideas, going into such cringe-worthy and overly pretentious political territory. "Stop using your technology! Apple, Samsung and Microsoft are trying to brainwash you and shit blah blah blah stick it up your ass 'cause you know I'm deep! I'M MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN, BEOTCH!" It's just half-assed commentary and "Eat The Elephant" is just a downright ugly and dated record overall.
