Editors’ Notes Puscifer—an oddball offshoot project of Tool's Maynard James Keenan—is a better realized group than its novelty tag would suggest. The version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" that leads off this EP isn't a joke; it's a perfectly executed version of the Queen classic that doesn't in any way poke fun at Freddy Mercury. The German metal band Accept has its classic anthem "Balls to the Wall" presented in a "Pillow Fight Mix" (vocal) and a "Silent Servant El Guapo Mix" (instrumental by DJ Silent Servant, natch); each takes turns adding and subtracting beats and synths. The song is transformed into a gothic music fan's ultimate dream, or at least something that should be appreciated by a fan of Keenan's other side project, A Perfect Circle. The two remaining songs—the dark and moody "Breathe" and the brighter and bouncier "Dear Brother"—are presented in official versions and then in remixes by Drumcell and Denton, respectively, further showing Keenan's interest in electronic music.
