Clever modern rock with some post-punk elements. Tasteful and distinctive twin guitars combine with a fluid bass and tight percussion to form engaging, tuneful material. Circle Seven certainly won't appeal to the hardest core, but anyone who appreciates groups like the Embarrassment should enjoy this.
-Jeff Bale (from Maximum Rocknroll #8, September 1983)
Circle Seven have sort of a measured mid-tempo post-punk approach. They have a basic guitar-bass-drum lineup, some seductive drum-heavy rhythms, distanced singing, and good lyrics, but the music is a bit too much under control for my taste (except maybe on "Look What You've Got"). If they got wilder, more heads would turn.
