Total run time
Vö/Releasebereits erschienen / already released  

Hey! What the hell is going on in Finland? Not long ago I praised Scent´s latest album and now I have another record from the icy country in my player and once again I´m amazed. CIRCLE play experimental rock as well but their music is closer to progressive metal and reminds at times of their genre peers Tool or Bohren & der Club Of Gore. The songs are catchy and make you want to move because groove is what the guys are going for on this album. The arrangements still sound a bit “underdeveloped” here and there but it doesn´t affect the listening experience in a negative way and is very much excusable. This 60-minute record doesn´t get boring because the song writing is very variable and CIRCLE can convince with more quite parts, too. The guitars sound powerful and also the guy behind the drums does solid work which, together with a really fat production, makes “Hollywood” a really great listen. Those who like progressive metal or hard rock, and beyond that can´t get enough of the 70s, should definitely check this one out.
