Babylon Circus are traditionally a reggae and ska band from Lyon, France. Mostly known for their energetic live shows, which last around the three to four houres, the band constantly tours Europe and Asia.

In their second real album, Babylon Circus stray from the traditional dub, reggae, ska and "chanson Francaise" of their first album, Au Marché Des Illusions. The CD starts with a great reggae/ska song, "Dances Of Resistance." Other standout tracks include "De La Musique Et Du Bruit" (with some great horns), "Musical Terrorism Act," "L'huile Su Le Feu" (where they venture into Mano Negra-style punk and come out in one whole piece) and "Mr.Clown," which includes a chorus that will be stiched to your brain for many weeks to come.

Singing both in English and French, this CD shows the incredible talent of this French band which gives traditional ska and reggae a whole new meaning. Not a new meaning in the sense of punk-ska-pop, but more in a way that you want to hear the songs over again and again and each new one brings you to some other place in the world. Even if you don't understand the lyrics, the music will lead you.

Dude, Pasha. I look up Babylon Circus on Google, and I find YOU?! That's crazy coincidental.

And, in an attempt to mend the possible scarring I have caused you by not telling you who I am, it's VeggieDelight (Ari) from the AP board. The Internet is obviously a very small place.

I randomly picked up this CD used at my local record store, which is kinda weird, 'cause my town is tiny. So I bought it. I haven't actually listened to it yet, but I will soon. I'll tell you how I like it.

And I'm not sure why everyone else had such a hard time understanding it. I read it through before I even realized it was you who had written it, and it made perfect sense to me. That's probably just because my friends and I tend to speak in half-sentences and such, though. Who knows?

It's cool Pasha. Like I said I think I get the point you're making, besides 99% of what I say here is just me being an asshole.

I think I know where the reviewer was going on this one but they totally lost me in about a dozen places. Plus I still have no real concept of what seperates this band from others. In addtion when has "houres" been a unit of time? Is this some crazy Euro-review? Because I won't stand for that. I want my freedom fires and my reviews written in American English, damn it.
