Thank you so much, Laurence Todd and Classic Rock Society, for the cover listing, the kind words in the review, and the two-page interview with Circuline’s Andrew Colyer and Darin Brannon, for the CircuLive::Majestik CD/DVD/Blu-ray in Issue 229!
“Making something of a deserved name for themselves…..the quality of the musicianship….in the end it’s the songs and the music that counts…..all these elements combine together…..all these can be found in Circuline.”
“Extremely gifted musicians, whose skills blend effectively to make an impressive whole, greater than the sum of their parts. Progressive and melodic…..complex but always accessible…..ample testament to their potency as a band.”
“Quite a statement, with some epic playing and some great songs…..making people sit up and take notice of them.”
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!
