The release of this years ''Clock Are Like People'' album, saw these Medieval minstrels transcend from the potential trappings of stylized media hype, into something altogether more marvelous and uncompromising. ''Clocks'' was a much more musically accomplished record than its predecessor (2005''s ''The Lick On The Tip Of An Envelope Yet To Be Sent''), devoid of the contrived elements associated with a band tipped to be the ''next big thing''. The emphasis this time, was more about creating beautifully contrasting songs with a strong sense of melody. Song Of Our Despair captures the ethereal folk sensibilities of Circulus perfectly, arriving just in time for the Autumnal spirit. With Circulus, the essence of Medieval Britain is recaptured, reinvented, and embraced. Traditional folk music layered with Lutes, Crumhorns & Moog Synthesizers! Let''s celebrate.
