SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Slowly flowing forwards, filled with humorous atmosphere, circus sounds (all of them, including drumming mockery and applause of audience) mixed together with something that escapes definitions. It's not your typical Avant artists, as this is simply optimistic. It's more homage to fun making than actual experimentation. And if they're successful in something, it would be atmosphere. Because ath. is really great here. Common, we all know circuses (even I never was in one, I'm not regretting it), I've seen it many times. In films, books, even in rock music (and The Simpsons once, where was Canadian Circus in Springfield). But never in prog music. Such a image, Circus Prog sounds and looks pretty insane, but aren't these things insane from beginning ?

I mean try to hear the music here, you somehow know that it fits to traveling band of artists (not musical ones, but acrobats), magicians, bearded ladies (you know I mean you ... you will know if you'll see this) and such things. There's certain style of music that accompanies it. And here, somehow, it's combined with prog that you can't almost tell the difference, but it fits, it works and it's interesting. Oh, except Kiss: Psycho circus game, there's also whole world (4 levels) in old DOS game Superfrog (I love this one) based on this theme.

4(-), frankly, I've been feeling like at jamming gig at times. And that's something I like, even prog lacks here a little bit. What can't we deny is the fact that it's original music, very intriguing and done in complex style, without clear structure. It is, well, it provides a lot, but also it's its fault that it therefore lacks advantages of more strict structures.

Or something like that.

Rising to some fame in the 70s with Swedish avant-garde / progressive-rock group Samla Mammas Manna (also Zamla Mammaz Manna), Hasse later joined The Flower Kings as a frequent guest-musician on the percussions, natur ...
