  • I'm still backtracking through Circle's massive discography and finding there are far more hits than misses. My favourite time period is probably around 2003, with Sunrise, Guilliotine and live documents from that time like Telescope. Katapult, however, is shaping up to be my favourite album of theirs. What an odd gem!
  • the 1998-2002 instrumental prog type stuff that these guys did (right around whenever Mika first joined) is soooooo good; i can't even progress any further into the remaining hundreds of releases that these guys did cause of how much i'm obsessively listening to songs like Paljasta, Taantumus, Vesitorni / kaupunginsairaala, & Varhain. Pori, Andexelt, Prospekt, Taantumus, & Sunrise 4 lyf ♥♥♥~
  • I agree with Smirnon. I used to have the Peel Session on CD-R and have since misplaced it. It was my first exposure to them.
  • listening to the Peel Session tracks. they should release these on a proper album.
  • horns on the new one are excellent. super smooth stuff
  • I really love the new album, Pharaoh Overlord. The new album by Pharaoh Overlord, Circle, is also good. You'd think Circle (ex-Falcon) were trying to confuse their followers!
  • Dave Holland - Chick Corea - Barry Altschul - Anthony Braxton
  • Love these guys, but every albums has certain flaws. Probably they release everything they record, though for the most part the material is good. I love Leviatan, the new one. Of the older records, Hissi is probably my favourite. Sunrise and Panic are also played often.
  • Teräskylpy is also a whoa dude piece on Telescope.
  • Matka and Kaarre from Telescope are some of their best pieces yeah. that 15:00 to 20:00 mark on Kaarre is whoa dude
