  1. Listening to the album when fully engaged with the story of its creation is both exhausting and exhilarating. A heartbreaking work of staggering genius? Very possibly.
  2. There's certainly enough passion in Blue Sky Noise to show the masses where rock and roll and great songwriting can meet in a traditional compromise that everyone can enjoy.
  3. It harnesses Circa's best qualities and adds a sense of direction previous releases somewhat lacked. [May 2010, p.105]
  4. The entirety of Blue Sky Noise blows away anything else that Circa Survive have ever done. It is immense, it is challenging, and it will make fools out of those who doubt it.

    It's always been rare to find a band that has a lyricist with as much as depth as Green and and band so dedicated to making those words come to light. I'm not sure which come first, lyrics or music but it's absolutely fantastic to hear it all come to together in what is a fantastic album. Not one track on this album is a dud or is so experimental that the listener will have the urge to push forward. As a post grunge era, Jim Morrison fan stuck in a world of pop music, this album is an absolute gem. Full Review »
