Editorial Reviews

After their previous album debuted at #24 on the Billboard 200, Circa Survive have returned to once again rock the music world with their major label debut album, 'Blue Sky Noise.' The album is a reinvention of the bands trademark sound led by unique vocals and distinguished musical styling. The band has described 'Blue Sky Noise' as an entirely 'new chapter' which will solidify Circa Survive as one of the most visionary and forward-thinking young bands in contemporary rock music today.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Art May 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Like the best art, it does take some effort and attention on your part to get into it. Once you do, you will be hooked. The first listen overwhelmed me - it was too much, too intense, too much going on, and it was hard to reign it in and get into it. Each listen gave me more. I found myself singing parts of songs in my head for hours. Piece by piece it will burrow into your brain until you have to have more. And then at some point, everything becomes clear, and it is the only thing you want to listen to. You'll find something new with every listen. I love their previous albums, but none of them gripped me like this one. Phenomenal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one! April 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been a big fan of Circa Survive for a long time now, so of course I'm going to love this album! But to be honest, not only am I a big fan...this cd is simply one of the most amazing pieces of music I have heard in the last year or so. Not only is Anthony's voice exceptional, but the lyrics flow with the music like a sweet breeze over a grassy field. The guitars and bass have never been so entwined and worked to each others benefit to such an extent. The melodies don't just work well together, it's as though they were meant to be put together. Songs like Frozen Creek are just, simply put, incredible. Another addition to this album over their others is the blending between tracks. Each one leads into the next, a la Mars Volta, and it really works to bring life to the album. It's not just a bunch of songs put together, it's an entire story, something to be experienced from beginning to end.

I've waited a long time for this and it has already made it up to one of my top albums in the last year at least, if not longer.

On paper, Circa Survive sounds like an amazing band. Take Anthony Green, a talented vocalist with a dream-like voice and a talent for passionate, meaningful lyrics and place him in a progressive/indie/experimental rock band with musicians as skilled as himself.

How can you go wrong?

Well, I first spent some time listening to this band when Juturna was released, not too long after Anthony left Saosin, which at the time, was my favorite band. I was excited because I wanted to hear more Anthony Green and I remember all the hype surrounding the release of Juturna. It was a great CD, very different, very experimental, very trance-like. I enjoyed it, they did things no other band was doing and combined with Anthony Green's creative talent, it created a remarkable, fully unique sound. The only criticism, at the time, was in parts the record was simply a bit boring.

Fast forward to Blue Sky Noise. I don't know what to say, the music is artful and well-played, but somehow the finished product ends up being, for me at least, very bland. I understand that Circa Survive is the kind of band you have to sit down and make a conscious effort to absorb, but I feel like this release in particular makes that more challenging because somehow the music doesn't come across to be all that interesting. For all a band's complexities, intricasies, and artistic experimentation, the core music still has to be capable of grabbing the listener in a way that makes them push the "repeat" button time and time again. Interestingly enough, Blue Sky Noise ends up being more like background noise for me, as I find myself spacing out a bit while listening to the CD forceably in my car trying to make it "click.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Circa Survive release April 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In a world where most bands sound exactly the same, Circa Survive stands out for their originality, musical passion, and dedication. Not to mention that they probably have one of the greatest frontmen in the music scene today second to none. I like each of Circa Survive's cds because they offer something different from the band. Juturna is a great blend of ambient and meaningful songs, On Letting Go is extremely hard to forget and now with Blue Sky Noise they offer a cd that hits a bit harder than the rest. The lyrics are catchy and well-written as is the music. It is not as "mellow" as the last two cds but I think it fits the band well and I have a feeling that their live show will be made even better by these new songs. If you are new to Circa Survive, check out this cd in addition to the other two. If you are already a Circa Survive fan, you probably don't need to be told because you already picked it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up and beyond the hype April 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this album is amazing. Every track holds a little bit of old circa survive mixed with a little new. Every song is strong and could stand alone as a single. Most notable to me are frozen creek, fever dreams, imaginary enemy, and spirit of the stairwell along with i felt free. But all the songs are great and most definitely worth listening. new or old fans will be delighted with the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 3rd Album April 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Circa fan for about 4 years now (shortly after Juturna) and have been eagerly awaiting this album for a couple years. I have read some reviews of the album before I bought it, and most were glowing. I, too, like the album a lot but feel it's a departure from On Letting Go. I liked the lyrics a lot more on OLG, as I felt they dealt with Anthony's personal realization and departure from his faith. The lyrics on most of these songs, to me, are not as poignant. I do like a number of the songs on the album, but feel as if, at least lyrically, they are not as deep as past songs. But yes they are indeed great songs. Personal favorites include Frozen Creek, I Felt Free, Get Out. If you are a Circa fan, definitely pick this album up as I find it to be unique, but more like Juturna than On Letting Go.
