  1. Genuinely soulful and unhindered by a slavish devotion to traditional Americana, The Opera Circuit is a tour de force for Hinson.
  2. The deep-voiced young troubadour has constructed some songs worthy of his blue moods and obsession with the old-timey.

    By turns, raw, sophisticated and sublime. [Sep 2006, p.104]
  4. A dark, beautiful collection. [26 Aug 2006, p.43]
  5. At times enjoyable, at other times somewhat bland, And The Opera Circuit is a somewhat inconsistent follow-up release from the young artist.
  6. 60
    [The songs] sound like woozy shanties for seasick barflies. [Nov 2006, p.100]
  7. It seems like Hinson puts far more energy into conveying some sense of backwoods authenticity than writing songs that inspire any type of real emotion. [Oct 2006, p.200]
