Circle Of Reason – “These Hands And This Mind”

Circle Of Reason – “These Hands And This Mind” EP (www.facebook.com/circleofreason)

It’s amazing what you can do with a pair of hands and a brain. In this case UK alt rockers Circle Of Reason have created a veritable hotch potch of material that draws from Porcupine Tree to Coheed and Cambria to Creed. Mixing soft and hard styles, expect drifting vocals mixed with post grunge guitars and matching rhythms on songs like the chopping ‘Themes Amongst Thieves’ to the moving ‘Don’t Be Still’ and the contrasting ambiance and intense riffola of ‘Home’. It’s all very well executed musically and in the song arrangements although the lack of consistency in the band’s sound may annoy some, while the sheer range of bands that the Circle Of Reason have toured with may suggest otherwise, attesting to their diverse appeal as well as a number of videos to date receiving national airplay. Perhaps a mind is a good thing indeed, as long as you don’t think too much about things as the obvious might pass you by……
