Progression Magazine Covers RoSfest and Reviews Counterpoint

Progression Magazine (U.S.) Issue 70 covers the 13th International Rites of Spring Festival (RoSfest), and gave Circuline’s Counterpoint a 3.5 star review!

RoSfest – “Jefferson Airplane gone proggy?  The smooth chemistry between co-lead vocalists Natalie Brown and Billy Spillane amidst soaring symphonic atmospheres evoked as much, especially in Brown’s Grace Slick-like phrasing…….played tightly despite recent lineup changes…..Bassist Harold Skeete, on emergency loan from Ad Astra, deftly negotiated difficult material and contributed a poignant rendition of ‘America the Beautiful’.  New guitar virtuosos Beledo shined with dextrous chops complementing the leads and fills of keyboardist Andrew Colyer…….Violinist Joe Deninzon guested late in the set”

Counterpoint Review – 3.5 stars – “Varied melodies and styles from musical theater and jazz to classic rock and traditional prog…..symphonically soaring…..moves through multiple passages both playful and serious, while conveying a lyrical theme…..multiple yet interdependent sonic perspectives…..”

Thank you so much to John Collinge and Michael Popke!

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!
