A funny band Circle, they can be awesome, a mess, smudged up techno rock that I don't like at all, a mix of all the above or indeed just plain boring, and there are those albums that are great except for being ruined by the vocals.
This is none of the above, although it is a really good one (one of the best 3 from their vast output). Many quote Circle as Finnish Krautrock, and they get pretty close to that here, notable images of Faust and very early Kraftwerk, but there's also a punkiness that reminds of industrial / new-wave acts of the early 1980's. There's a lot going on here!
