Well, considering a lot of rumors that I heard about Circus Of Power, I feel lucky to have this album in my hands. For a while, at least, it sounded like Circus Of Power was finished and had broken up for good. Thankfully, that’s not the case and the band has given us a great album with Four. The material is a little more diverse than previous Circus Of Power albums and covers a wide range of sounds and influences. The first two tracks, Fast And Easy and Hard Drivin’ Sister are pure classic Circus Of Power rockers.  Rock show has a bit of a nod to Lou Reed‘s sound. Princess Of Mars sounds like Alex Mitchell is channeling the late Jim Morrison from the Doors. Sin City Boogie and American Monster are again, excellent hard rockers in the traditional COP sound. See The Sun, has a bit of a psychedelic, desert rock feel to it that is really quite cool. Love Sick Blues and Come Git Some also fit nicely with what’s come previously from the band. At times, I almost hear a hint of The Ramones mixed in with their bluesy style of rock. All in all, this is a great album that sees the band take some chances and spread their wings a little creatively, without losing their longtime fans that love their classic sound. With well crafted songs and their usual excellent hard rock sensibility. What more could you ask for? A great album that I highly recommend to all rock lovers.
