Special Thanks to Paul Watson, Brad Birzer, and all the folks at Progarchy for this in-depth interview and track-by-track notes for the new album!
Thank you so much to Jerry Ewing and Matt Parker for the great review of “Counterpoint” in PROG Magazine Issue 68, featuring Jon Anderson as the 2016 “Prog God”!
“Feels tighter than a duck’s hindquarters……healthy doses of Yes, Rush, and Gentle Giant, but there are also creeping, Wilson-esque atmospherics, cinematic soundscapes and modern tonal beef…..powerful harmony vocal arrangements…..the bevy of guest guitarists…..an intriguing, impactful record that spans the classic and modern prog worlds.”

“Circuline’s new album, their second effort, Counterpoint, shows the evolution of this band from its primordial beginnings to a very advanced stage of cinematic progressive music. The balance between extreme instrumental and vocal gymnastics has been harnessed and the results are clearly evident. This band is a maturing organism that is evolving into a juggernaut, not only in the progressive music genre, but in the general music scene. I’m not sure I can even handle what the third release may bring!” — Marty Dorfman (AKA The Prog Doctor), House of Prog
Thank you so much Marty, for such a great review!
Thank you so much to Classic Rock Society Magazine (UK) for the great review of Circuline’s debut album in Issue 210!
“Excellent vocals…..a variety of unpredictable moods, tempos, and atmospheres…..a nice balance of instrumentals and songs…..tasty keyboard solos…..nice guitar…..YES-like rhythm section…..exciting Porcupine-Tree-like…..a great debut album!”
