Circuline’s Counterpoint Reviewed in Classic Rock Society (UK)

00001

Circuline’s new album Counterpoint received an excellent review in the UK’s Classic Rock Society magazine!

“Confident in its vision…..a very particular style…..What we have here is drama – big, bombastic, epic progressive rock with everything turned up to 11.  The production is massive…..two excellent lead vocalists in Natalie Brown and Billy Spillane, so add Colyer’s third vocal and we have some very effective harmonies…..the music matches the production…..Colyer’s dominant keyboards are excellent throughout, recalling Keith Emerson particularly…..short instrumental vignettes are also nicely used…..high on quality and craft…..for those that like their prog powerful and dramatic, it’s a must listen.”

Thank you so much to Miles, David, and SL at Classic Rock Society for this review!
