They were one of my favorite bands back in high school. I mostly think they're just ok, now.

The second A Perfect Circle album, Thirteenth Step, is the best Maynard album I've heard, even though the other APC albums were pretty meh. It's more dream-poppy than normal for him. Also, Josh Freese >>>>>>>>>>>> Danny Carey. Like, by a lot. Even when I was in high school and loved Tool and didn't really like APC very much, I thought Freese's drumming was a lot stronger.
