    re: loose, hazy, jammy stuff (that I tend to gravitate towards as it gets really hot in the summer), I'm revisiting and greatly enjoying Tyrant and the Sunburned Circle album (Circle + Sunburned Hand of the Man). As for favourites, I will tentatively name Sunrise the quintessential Circle album.

    Telescope sounds like it'd be my kinda thing... I'll check it out thanks.

    Telescope is the best one, long hazy jams is Circle's strongest point. Serpent is the best rock circus and Prospekt is the best old style Circle album. I generally like the live albums more, the studio albums feel more calculated which doesn't suit the band.

    What are your favourite Circle albums and why? I've sort of come to these guys having exhausted the Pharaoh Overlord discography (I did see Circle a few years back, but I didn't really get into their records back then). I feel like I have a lot to discover... Of the 9 I've listened to so far Taantumus is probably my favourite. It's that hypnotic repetition...

    Leviatan is the cutest album they ever put out. big Kuusumun Profeetta and Plain Ride vibe. heavy on the Westerlund influence i guess

    I can't stop listening to Hollywood. It just might be my favorite record of 2014, even if it was released in 2008.

    After mostly listening to their more recent material for some time, I'm returning to the mystical hypno-trips of Pori/Prospekt/Andexelt/Taantumus. Probably the most satisfying period in their catalogue.

    woah weirddddd. well, they certainly picked yet another band name that doesn't have much of a novelty factor :)

    "From 1991 through 2013, Falcon operated under the name of Circle. The need for the sudden name change arises from the Circle brand's becoming somewhat of a burden due to the expectations of Ektro Records and audiences. Making music was turning into work and an obligation. The Circle brand has been leased to a group of artists, who are currently working on the next Circle album. The full-lengths of both Falcon (ex-Circle) and Circle will be released later this autumn. The current plan is that the lease contract dissolves by the end of 2013 and the Circle brand will be returned to Falcon, who then may continue under the name Circle (ex-Falcon). All Circle concerts booked for 2013 will be performed by Circle's long standing line-up: Mika Rättö, Janne Westerlund, Jussi Lehtisalo, Tomi Leppänen, Pekka Jääskeläinen, Julius Jääskeläinen, Tuomas Laurila." Jussi Lehtisalo / Falcon (ex-Circle)

    https://soundcloud.com/ektrorecords/falcon-ex-circle-beer-and-ribs Falcon (ex-Circle) kicks off by whacking on the table the hit single Beer and Ribs. Strongly influenced by AOR and soft rock, this catchy rocker knocks on the doors of shady radio playlist cabinets. The lowest common denominators and the hottest rock and roll clichés launch Falcon (ex-Circle) as the rock heaven's wildest new name, whose success story is just waiting to be written down. Slashing riffs, speeding synths, motorik beats and soulful vocals are combined with the dazzling vision and flair of these experienced rock veterans.

    now in retrospect i'm glad someone outbid me on ebay on the Fraten CD for 50 USD since ektro is now reissuing it

    If the live versions of the new songs on Serpent are anything to go by, then the new studio album Manner is going to be another winner. Release date is on Record Store Day in April.

    there's not a single album that represents the sound from their entire oeuvre, so i say check an album from several of their sounds: Meronia, Forest, Tower, Mountain and Panic should give a good all-around picture
