Emotive is the third album by the American progressive rock band A Perfect Circle. It was published on 1 November 2004 and thus one day before the U.S. presidential elections.


The album contains only two new songs, of which only one is rewritten: " Passive ". The song, which originally " Vacant " was called, was written by Keenan as part of the Tapeworm project along with Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor, however, came after the abandonment of the project never for publication. The other previously unknown title "Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums " is a reinterpretation of the song " Pet" from the last album Thirteenth Step. The rest of the songs are cover versions of songs from the peace movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

Multiple set A Perfect Circle appeals to the listener, in which they call for action or decision:

" I'll say it again in the land of the free. Use your freedom of choice "

" In the land of the free, I 'll say it again. Use your freedom of choice. "

"It 's your choice, your choice, your choice, your choice ... peace or annihilation "

" It's your choice ... peace or annihilation [ of mankind ] "

The song "Counting Bodies like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums " was used in the soundtrack to the computer game Rage, the song " Passive " in the soundtrack to the movie Constantine.
