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.
