90% for Juturna redux? lol. I thought reviews were supposed to be fair and unbiased?

Great review, I am one of the straight dudes with a crush on Green for sure.

Just a few hours away...

...I'm definitely picking this album up tomorrow after work.

nice review

You read my mind with that review. Circa is definitely the kind of band you have to listen to multiple times before their songs really land, and its hard if not impossible to get people to listen to an album ten times if they've made their judgment from their first listen.

And I also agree with your description of "kicking your crosses down." That song and "Mandala" are probably my two favorite on the album.

Yes. And, although it's a well written review, I just don't see how releasing a near identical album two years later still justifies such a high score.

I understand what you are saying, but in the categories we grade on, they deserve that score, I feel. What would you mark down?

This is a really good review. I definately feel that the guitarists stepped it up on this album. It took a day to get used to this album, but now I'm hooked for sure.

Best tracks are probably "Living Together", "Semi-Constructive Criticism" and "Carry Us Away"

Kicking Your Crosses Down, and Your Friends Are Gone are my favorites, I fucking love the guitars in both songs.

Looking forward to this...

Well-written review, it points out much of what I felt with this album, except my rating would be about a 5. Yes it has its moments, but I just don't see my self listening to this album in a month. Juturna was great (I listened to it yesterday and still love it), but this album seems to be the meaning of "Deja Entendu" (sorry for a lame Brand New drop). This was by far one of the biggest disappointments of the year for me. I know this band has fanboys/girls like no other, but c'mon this band has so much more potential. They might as well do what Streetlight Manifesto did to Keasbey Nights if they are thinking of releasing another album that is almost identical.

You're an idiot. By definition, no opinion can be unbiased.

This was pretty much an amazing review, Steve. Props.
