Progression Magazine’s (U.S.) Issue 74 gives a four star review (out of five) to CircuLive::Majestik!!
“A great summary of the ensemble’s unique assets…..impressive…..contemporary American prog, melodically oriented with charming personality…..has an episodic/cinematic sense of flow that keeps you engaged for its duration…..spine chilling…..tasty…..soulful…..tastefully edited…..exquisitely mixed.”
Special thanks to John Collinge for the feature!
Thank you so much, Martin Hutchinson of Prog Radar, for this great review of CircuLive::Majestik!!
“Highly impressive progressive rock act…..dramatic and powerful performances…..bombastically brilliant…..raises the hairs on the back of my neck…..well shot DVD draws you in and makes you feel as if you are part of the whole experience…..soaring to the heights of The Majestic’s roof…..in this spellbinding show, it’s not just a concert, it really is like going to the theatre to watch a musical extravaganza and Circuline really deliver that”
“As live albums go this one has to be right up there with some of the recent best. Having excellent songs is a good start but to be able to translate those tracks into the live arena this well takes some real skill and Circuline have that in spades.”
For the full review:

Thank you so much, Jerry Ewing and Prog Magazine for the solid review of the “CircuLive::Majestik” CD/DVD/Blu-ray in PROG Issue 88!
“They never sound derivative….one of the band’s selling points is the three-part harmonies…..moments of great musical drama…..detours into ELP territory…..those years spent playing prog classica have honed their confidence and stage presence, and their potential is clear.”

Thank you so much to Japanese “Prog Notes” for this Honor!
“Circuline’s 1st album ‘Return’ was nominated last year for the ‘Rookie of the Year Award’. ‘Counterpoint’ is a step up from the debut & a very elaborate & well done album. Indeed, this feels like the pioneering of a new generation of American Progressive music. This album also takes the road to the land of orthodox American Symphony. The melody lines are dramatic & emotional. When listening, I can imagine visuals between dreams & reality. Circuline, both by word of mouth & in reality has achieved a real self- evolution. The best new work voted #1 this year was the album by ‘Kansas’ & I have to say that Circuline’s album is right up there too. It’s astonishing, their growth, & I’m looking forward to hear more of their musical world & wishing them all the respect in the future for a higher rank!
