Review by SouthSideoftheSky
3 stars "There's no stopping true progress!"

Billy Sherwood and Tony Kaye - both previous members of Yes (Sherwood in the 90's and Kaye in the late 60's/early 70's and then again in the 80's to the mid 90's) - have done it again! And So On is Circa's third studio disc and once again they have outdone themselves as this is their best album yet! Compared to previous Circa albums, And So On rocks a bit harder and has more energy. The set of melodies is the strongest coming from the band, and the songs on this album kept growing on me more and more with further listens.

The sound of this album is dominated by Billy's Chris Squire-like bass lines and lead vocals, Tony's powerful organ and keyboards, Steve Howe-like guitar licks from new member Johnny Bruhns, and strong harmony vocals. The new drummer is Scott Connor who also does a good job here. Drawing on all the different eras of Yes from the 60's to the 90's, Circa produce a sound that is similar to that well-known band yet also is something a bit of their own.

It is a real shame that Circa are not more popular around here as they certainly deserve more recognition. If you are a strict purist who only likes the 1972-1977 period of Yes, the music of Circa may not be for you. But if you enjoy all the different eras of Yes, including those that involved Kaye and Sherwood, then you should really give Circa a chance.

Highly recommended!
