"Jamie Hoover and Steve Stoeckel have been on top of their game for more than three decades. Here, for 21 minutes, they are more than on top of their game. They are just about floating above it."
"Circling offers up another collection of out-of-the-box pop songs and much like a circus act, they’re guaranteed to both charm and amaze."
"Exploding with enthusiasm and the talent to match, Circling is so good that every single song sports a radio-friendly quality. Ringing vocals and iridescent harmonies join forces with rich and ripe hooks, while the arrangements are both practical and adventurous. The energy is vibrant and each song offers a new and different perspective."
"Opener “Orgami Woamn” and later track “Skeleton” provide outstanding examples of Jamie and Steve’s exhilarating and effusive prowess, but beautiful ballads like the title track and “You” also show their sensitive side in full flush, replete with soaring harmonies and sensitive set-ups."
"The pair sound decidedly liberated from The Spongetones’ trademark sound, though the hooks, power and vocal harmonies are happily present in abundance."
