CRITIC REVIEWS

80
NME

For those who can stomach its muscular experimentation, 'Circles' is out of this world. 

76
Pitchfork

What seems like such a consistently pleasurable but perhaps stubbornly inflexible formula is consistently subverted in intriguing ways.

70
Consequence of Sound

For the most part, the record brims with that signature fuzz, groove, and drone, but it’s not monochromatic like last year’s Mazes

70
Drowned in Sound

Circles revels in its consistency if nothing else, and while the element of surprise is something one is unlikely to be greeted with by a Moon Duo record, they make business as usual seem like an enjoyable pastime rather than a laborious chore.

68
Beats Per Minute

Circles is dark and sexy, but also more consistent in terms of aesthetic than quality, it neither underwhelms nor excites.

Circles is by no means bad – and there are those who will find it great – but it all too often feels like butter scraped over too much bread.
