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.

90% for Juturna redux? lol. I thought reviews were supposed to be fair and unbiased?
You're an idiot. By definition, no opinion can be unbiased.

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

I can't wait for the new album, I'm actually waiting to hear it compared to other albums I didn't wait to listen for.

Circa Survive sounds nothing like The Mars Volta. And I agree that "Living Together" is the best song on the album.

Extremely well written review, but the end made me feel that the writer felt his opinion was absolute ("if you don't find something new with every spin, you aren't listening hard enough"). Kinda icky.

I think he meant that it sounded like TMV in the experimentation respect, not necessarily the overall sound.

Never said they did. Said "Recommended if you like." Big difference amigo.

Hehe, didn't mean to sound like that. I'll try to be less "icky" next time

I'm surprised about the 10 for vocals. I know Green is good, but probably not better than his instrumental counterparts in the band. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure.

For me, it is just hard to imagine anyone else signing on this record like Anthony does, and that is why I scored his vocals so high.
