Coming exactly ten years after the excellent debut album After The Storm, Kaos Moon's second album sounds like it was made by a completely different group. And to a large extent it seems that it actually is an almost completely different group. Compared to the sound of After The Storm, the nature of The Circle Of Madness is much more whimsical and laid back. The edge of the former album is lost on the present album. Also, while After The Storm featured predominately modern keyboards, The Circle Of Madness features more vintage keyboards and a plethora of acoustic instruments.

Both albums are very enjoyable in their own respective ways, but for me the 1994 debut far outshines this follow-up. Or, at least, the debut is much more to my personal taste. I'm sure other Prog fans would make the opposite judgment. The Circle Of Madness is a pleasant and eclectic Pop Prog album that might well appeal very much to some people.

Good, but somewhat disappointing after the excellent After The Storm.
