Circle - Terminal (2017)
The 33rd album from this Finnish band.
Circle is a sextet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals. Both Finnish and English vocals.
Circle is a bit of legends in the underground psych and space rock scene. I have reviewed two of their previous albums for # 1 of this blog. You will find my reviews here and here.
Some of their most recent albums has been cassette only albums. That tells you how underground this band is. 33 albums since 1994. That is a lot of work.
Truth to be told, their music is a lot in the improvisations and jam psych and space rock vein. Jams and improvisations who sometimes turns into albums. That depends on the quality, off course.
Despite of the very loose songs and structures, there is still a lot of good details and quality here. From the opening doomy death-grunts over a spaced out stoner theme to a more melodic take on space rock at the end of this forty-five minutes long album.
There is a lot of well thought through music here and a lot food for thoughts on this album. And it is a good album too. I really like this album and this band. Maybe too much...... No, check out this band.
