3 stars Next album I was very curious to hear was Vienna Circle's "Silouette Moon" from this year. I hadn't heard anything of them or about them but understood they'd got good reviews. I'm very interested in finding new great prog bands that could interest me as much as the older ones.

The first I noticed was that the singer has a very good voice which unfortunately I don't think can show its full capacity here. "Strangers" is a nice and good starter with wonderful vocals and a great flow in the instrumental parts. The records best song is "Sea" which I though felt interesting in soundscape and voice. I heard voice harmonies and guitar work is greta here. That was the only song I can give 8/10 points. "Strangers" and two other songs got 7/10: "Woven wings" where the vocal parts has a very English feeling and the lengthy "Dreams Presage" with more sweeping symphonic like structures, though quite dull vocals. I don't find the other songs very interesting, just partially. What's good with Vienna Circle is that the sound is clear and sweat. Because they are so distinct it's easy to hear the different instruments for example. I also enjoy Paul Davis voice on many places.

What alas bores me is the piano and the vocals structures which have a feeling of Indie music or Post rock. This music is nice but unvaried so the brothers Jack (bass, piano) and Paul Davis (guitar, piano, vocals) won't get my full love today. Three stars!
