Maverick MC Dose One (of leftfield rap crew CloudDead) and renegade DJ/producer Boom Bip are both known for their idiosyncratic approaches to hip-hop. Circle is not for the weak-hearted. Representing the quite sickening force of their warped minds on wax, this is as turbid and discursive, a document as you're likely to hear. Boom Bip builds his bold, b-boy based bricolage from whatever he can get his hands on: African riddims, birdsong, stamping feet, whistles, eerie graveyard noises, cinematics, dope beats, electro, creaks, rock guitar riffs... nothing is safe from his bubbling sound cauldron. Fluttering around this mazy, bewitching soundscape is the sinister, cartoon-esque voice of Dose One who, if anything, proves himself even more random and demented. Throwing out prose as spontaneous and dizzying as a Charlie Parker solo, the MC revels in nonsensical verse, absurdist juxtapositions and stream-of-consciousness lyrics, sweeping and diving madly from pleasant harmonising to paranoid whisperings. Though consistently unhinged and often unsettling, the moments when the duo line up beats and rhymes in straight-up hip-hop fashion are truly exhilarating, like sunshine suddenly breaking through a dense fog. One part hip-hop, two parts audio theatre, this album is ambitious, indulgent and intensely against the grain. "The only war that counts is the war against the imagination" chirps Dose One--and it looks like they've already won. –Paul Sullivan

I put this on and sat in disbelief of what I was hearing. It flows! that's for sure. There are moments of pure genius here, like Tricky or Busta Rhymes or Lee Perry at their best - completely off the wall but undeniable. Is it IDM/Electro/Rap/Hip-hop/Trip-Hop/Etc - who cares? it's a piece of pure poetry, sometimes you hear a totally engaging hook and it just disappears from the mix, teasing you and moving on to the next killer break...
Some devastating tracks, listenable from beginning to end, challenging and engaging at the same time, it's just plain good music! (BTW: If you like this try Programmed by Innerzone Orchestra [aka Carl Craig])

Format: Audio CD
The four reviews here give quite an accurate balance of this album: it is genius, purely and simply just genius - Captain Beefheart for an avant-hip hop generation (because even within avanthiphop circles this is weird)..

Comparing this to the well known Trout Mask is rounding up nicely, it shares one commonality above all else: it has no tunes long enough. Sure, mr BoomBip makes some classic beats, but unlike Adam Doseone Druckers more recent band Subtle this just cannot mold a chorus line.
If you took cLOUDDEAD's Ten you'd find plenty of absurd rhymes that you'll mutter to yourself in a queue, but with Circle you'd be hard pushed to hum a melody..

But this is the thing, right?
That doesn't matter: this is unlike anything Drucker will ever do again. Themselves,DPP,Subtle,clouddead... nothing compares to the sheer excellence of this disk. Full of memorable lines and a beautifully crafted world of beats and noise, this should've lit the way for hip-hop artists to grab a map and follow as best possible.

This could be likened to Beefheart, but really it's closer to Can.

Format: Audio CD
The Boom Bip music at times gives out because it can't keep up with the utterances, energy or inventiveness of the Doesone verbiage. It's Viv Stanshall for the electronica age; it does for hip hop and like genres what Beefheart did for Rock n Roll. A Trout Mask replica replica. When eventually the music is given centre stage you start to miss the voice of Doseone; no matter what he's saying. Weird, different, hilarious, unlistenable, unavoidable.

I originally downloaded most of Doseone's stuff (he's gone by many names and some works are better than others) - but this music is so original, thoughtful, rhythmic and GOOD I had to buy the things.

If you like this check out cLOUDDEAD. I'd say that and this are timeless classics - I'll make no comment on the rest of Doseone's career :)
