CD Reviews

A few of the finer moments of 90s darkwave
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hearkening back to the glorious melodic depression of such acts as pre-90s Clan of Xymox and The Cure (Disintegration era), Ninth Circle finds themselves with some very foreboding potential to fulfill. At times, they fall flat on their faces; it's obvious that they're not yet ready for greatness, as some tracks wash out in a noisy mess (a la Soul Whirling Somewhere), while others simply wander astray. But I don't hate this! It's actually quite impressive. One listen to Deliver Me, and all is forgiven. The Ninth Circle is an act that specializes in achingly beautiful moments, but sometimes have difficulty mainting a song-length structure. If you can endure a few awkward moments, the best of what's here is sure to delight you."
The Beauty of Melancholy
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is Darkwave at its best. Etheral, brooding, at times chilling...Ninth Circle create mesmerizing cascades of enveloping soundscapes. Dive in, you might not want to get out..."
