"Trance rock quintet Circle -- a Finnish institution, undeservedly neglected in Western Europe -- are an awesome live experience. At first, their Magma-esque wall of guitar force and Wagnerian abstract vocals threatens just another troupe of Scandinavian Prog hodcarriers. But as their mantric motoric rhythms really lock in after a couple of numbers, and they begin to lose themselves in the gush of their own kundalini, their rhythmic engines kick in fired on the same fuel that drove the late, great Loop, the pre-Main group led by Robert Hampson."
