    Circulus - a journey to the medieval future...????
     
    Power to the pixies

    Now, Circulus have been receiving rave reviews for bringing the medieval up-to-date, eg, "It is John Barleycorn, not dead after all, but alive, well, and strangely funky." (Tom Cox). And I do like them. I've been listening to them all week. But - power to the pixies? - with lyrics like these, the conclusion has to be that really they're just prog-rock revisited...
