Circuline "Counterpoint" CD (2016)
This is for the USED cd, not the new one!!

The bands sophomore release show a new, stronger and very ambitious approach from the New York based band. On this release the band used no fewer than seven renowned guest guitarists who all bring their own flavor to these songs, and along with the band take it to a whole new level, a must listen for any progressive rock fan.

“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.” – Matt Parker, PROG 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.” – Classic Rock Society magazine (UK)

“The new album has a lot of great vocal harmonies, as well as instrumental sections. Circuline is one of those bands that serves as a bridge between old and new prog – a great blend of classic and new progressive rock – check them out – you’re going to love them!” – Mark Ashby, Progtopia.com
