After mostly listening to their more recent material for some time, I'm returning to the mystical hypno-trips of Pori/Prospekt/Andexelt/Taantumus. Probably the most satisfying period in their catalogue.
"From 1991 through 2013, Falcon operated under the name of Circle. The
need for the sudden name change arises from the Circle brand's
becoming somewhat of a burden due to the expectations of Ektro Records
and audiences. Making music was turning into work and an obligation.
The Circle brand has been leased to a group of artists, who are
currently working on the next Circle album. The full-lengths of both
Falcon (ex-Circle) and Circle will be released later this autumn. The
current plan is that the lease contract dissolves by the end of 2013
and the Circle brand will be returned to Falcon, who then may continue
under the name Circle (ex-Falcon). All Circle concerts booked for 2013
will be performed by Circle's long standing line-up: Mika Rättö, Janne
Westerlund, Jussi Lehtisalo, Tomi Leppänen, Pekka Jääskeläinen, Julius
Jääskeläinen, Tuomas Laurila." Jussi Lehtisalo / Falcon (ex-Circle)
Falcon (ex-Circle) kicks off by whacking on the table the hit single
Beer and Ribs. Strongly influenced by AOR and soft rock, this catchy
rocker knocks on the doors of shady radio playlist cabinets. The
lowest common denominators and the hottest rock and roll clichés
launch Falcon (ex-Circle) as the rock heaven's wildest new name, whose
success story is just waiting to be written down. Slashing riffs,
speeding synths, motorik beats and soulful vocals are combined with
the dazzling vision and flair of these experienced rock veterans.
