5 stars I've already rated the bootleg version of this album. But really, the definitive version is a great improvement for the sound. It's not only a remastered and a remixed.... all the guitars, the bass and the vocals have been rerecorded. Some songs as Dead End have been completely remade with a new structure. There are, as we know, several trends in prog rock. But, in symphonic, old fashion like approach, it's really a must. Near two and a half hours of songs that explore a really wide palette of colors in arrangements. Most of all, the melodies still deep and emotional in a suggestive environment. I still rate it at 5. I do so when I can't stop to listen something over the weeks and periodically come back to it.

4 stars I discovered CIRKUS through Wild Dogs (official bootleg) last year and I kept on listening since. I was thrilled to see that they took the time to release a new edition of this beautiful material for the anniversary of the first release!

Some slight change in the pacing, but most of all, the rerecording of some of the instruments and the new mastering makes it event more enjoyable! Most of the songs also benefited form the maturity that naturally comes with playing songs for many months as a group as they prepared for their first festival in Quebec City. I highly recommend it!!!
